    Hello all! I am between a few games for the 3DS and was wondering what you all thought I should get:

    1.Kingdom Hearts: I have played some of the 1st and liked it. Should I beat the first 2 before playing 3rd or will I be ok?
    2.Rayman Origins: I am looking to buy Rayman Legends and thought I should play this one in preparation
    3. Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon: I also have not played the 1st so would I be okay?

    And I am open to any other suggestions and thanks for your input :)

    1. Excellent game, if not a bit short. Kingdom Hearts' story is a bit hard to follow, so be sure to have played the other games. Other than that it's a fun game and the brokenness of Flow Motion makes the game a lot better than the prequels. Also, TWEwY cameos.
    2. Shitty port, ignore. Get the console/Vita version instead as that version has a LOT better graphics and 60 FPS. Otherwise, the best 2D platformer of the 7th Gen, hands down.
    3. Out of the three, get this one. It's a game hyped since the announcement of the 3DS and I can't wait to get my own hands on it. Definitely get this one out of the three.

    Out of your list of three, Luigi's Mansion, i've really enjoyed it.

    Fire Emblem: Awakening is another great game.

    Luigi's Mansion 2 is still playable if you haven't played the Gamecube one. In fact, Luigi's Mansion 2 is probably the better one but I'm still sad at the lack of a second control stick which could make this game better.

    Is the port that bad? I've played the console one so I don't really know the quality of it on the 3DS.

    I'd say KH. You'll get so many hours out of it in comparison to the others.

    Yeah if multiplayer is a concern, I might actually recommend LMDM. I guess it depends on what you're looking for.

    I went ahead and picked up Luigi's Mansion and I must say I am very satisfied with it. I will probably pick up kingdom hearts after I beat the first 2. Thanks for all the input everyone!

    KH3D is great if you're a KH fan, flowmotion makes travelling really awesome. As for Rayman Origins, it's a good game but you'll be better off with the console version if you can get it.

    And get Kid Icarus before anything else.

    Kid Icarus, Fire Emblem, Luigis Mansion 2. Get the 3DS port of Rayman Origins, only if you do not have any other way to play it. (The console versions are much superior.)

    Get Kingdom Hearts 3D if you're a fan or following the story of Kingdom Hearts. Otherwise, ignore this game since you'll just be confuse as hell if you're not following the story. haha. I suggest Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon. It's a fun game and has an online multiplayer. :D

    The best game you have up there in your suggestions is Luigi's Mansion. Get that.

    Have you tried the online multiplayer? Can you play with friends or is it all random?

    @kumpandjill Yes, I've tried it. You can play with your friends both locally and online.
