Kingdom Hearts 3D is pretty good- it's the latest in Square-Enix's series of Disney-Final Fantasy crossover action RPGs. It'll provide summaries of games at certain plot points, so you'll understand what's going on (if you haven't played the games before).
Kid Icarus: Uprising is also pretty good- it's an on rails shooter/third person shooter (air is on rails, ground is free-movement). It's got some quirky, enjoyable writing, and is a very polished product with quite a bit of gameplay if you don't count multiplayer.
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is really good as well, because it's, ummm.... Friggin OoT! Unless of course you're bored of it after playing it several times prior.
Star Fox 64 3D isn't bad- its an on rails shooter if you don't know- but its kind of short on content. You can replay it several times to take different pathways, go to different planets, fight different bosses, and try to get the medals on each level, but it doesn't take too long, and once you're done that's it. There is multiplayer, but its local only- which was a stupid decision. Good game though.
Super Mario 3D Land is cool as well- it's like a combination of the old school side-scrolling Mario games mixed with the 3D ones. It's one of the best looking games on the system, and plays great. There are a lot of levels in it as well (you unlock a whole other games worth upon 'beating' it- the ending leaves the story unresolved until you beat the 'special' worlds, which double the game (and are a lot harder than the normal worlds).
There's also several great download titles as well (IMO, Nintendo's download only releases for 3DS have been better than most of their mobile releases)- Pushmo (and its sequel Crashmo), Dillon's Rolling Western, Samurai Sakurai, Mighty Switch Force, Mutant Mudds, Zen Pinball, Cave Story- there's several more.
