Default 3ds games. What do you suggest

I'm new to handhelds and have picked up a 3ds in hopes of finding my childhood again, so to speak. Games I remember making me ole video games were of course the Mario Bros side scrolling, my favorite RPGs and only three I love Mario rpg, shadowrun, and earthbound. Also I played a few games on game boy and absolutely loved Pokemon trading card game.

My questions now are...
Do they make any of the above onto the 3ds.
Also I need your suggestions on the best 3ds games to buy.

In the next few days I'm going to buy a handful of games and want all the gems.
Please help with suggestions for the most fun games


So far I've bought
super Mario land 3d
Mini Mario from eshop
Mario picross from eshop

For side scrolling games, there is New Super Mario Bros 2 which came out. I haven't played it myself, but it seems to be up your alley. In terms of that genre, Donkey Kong 3ds has gotten good reviews, and a new Kirby game is coming out soon.

For rpgs, there is quite a lot, though most are jrpgs. However, Sticker Star and Dream Team are the closest to Mario RPG, and A Link Between Worlds is probably closest to Earthbound.

I absolutely loved the Pokemon TCG, and easily put in over 300 hours into it over the years. Unfortunately there are no signs of a pokemon tcg coming over, however Pokemon X and Y are out, and I'd highly recommend those.

Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, Zelda A Link Between Worlds, Pokemon X/Y, Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon, Prof Layton Miracle Mask, Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, Paper Mario Sticker Star, and Kid Icarus Uprising are all games I recommend! So many great games on the 3ds.

I considered buying a 3ds just to play Animal crossing.

But some other games I also thought looked good are-
Luigi's mansion, that new RPG with mario and Luigi, the new Kirby game, mario world 3d, Pokemon x, etc

While I realize your intentions were from the heart, I hope you realize starting a flame war is going to lead nowhere.

I'm an adult and have a 3ds (err... 2ds) haha. I always found it funny when people say that, bit whatevs.

Anyway I'm currently playing A Link Between Worlds and it's fun. Also I've played 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, Nano Assault, etc. and would recommend those as well. Donkey Kong looks like it could be fun too.

There are a few demos you can try of course. I played the demo for Mario and Luigi Dream Team and found it to be quite fun...

Video games are technically a kids thing anyway so you cant really make that an argument. 3DS has much better games then a Vita but to each their own. I get so bored of shooters and all this other garbage on Sony and Microsoft consoles. Nintendo games I never get bored of.

Definitely get both Zelda games (OoT 3D and ALBW). Some other good ones are Super Mario 3D Land, Kid Icarus Uprising, and Mario Kart 7. There's also Starfox 64 3D, though that's more of a port than anything else.
