    I find myself replaying Fire Emblem: Awakening a bit. (Gotta marry all dem waifus or something) - #1 on my activity log with 122 hrs.
    (Fire Emblem Echoes - Shadows of Valentia is also really good.)
    Majora's Mask 3D (It's my favorite Zelda game)
    Pokemon? - 80 hrs on Y, Moon about 50
    Monster Hunter 4U or Generations. - 73 or 44 hrs which is about 120 hrs combined.
    Super Smash Bros - #4 on my activity log with 100 hrs.
    Fantasy Life (surprisingly fun) - 54 hrs
    Animal Crossing New Leaf - 64 hrs

    The 3ds library is kind of lacking for me. Any recommendations I have you've probably already played. But just in case..

    Any Zelda games
    Resident evil revelations
    That metroid spinoff
    Pokémon
    Kirby
    ..etc

    Honestly I use my 3ds for vc more then anything else.

    As we're looking into activity logs:
    FE Awakening: 154 hours
    AC: New Leaf: 106 hours
    FE Fates: 82 hours
    Bravely Default: 72 hours
    Pokemon X: 70 hours
    Fantasy Life: 66 hours
    Shin Megami Tensei: Overclocked and Records Breaker
    All Ace Attorney games
    The Zero Escape games

    I enjoyed all of those.

    Not with you
    Animal Crossing New Leaf
    Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer
    Fire Emblem: Awakening and Echoes
    (wouldn't reccomend Fates unless you're desperate to play all Fire Emblem games)
    Kirby
    Most Mario
    games as a pass time
    Yo Kai Watch
    Professor Layton
    (all 3ds ports are good)
    Phoenix Wright (Trilogy, Spirit of Justice and vs Layton)
    Kingdom of Hearts Dream Drop was okay.
    Inazuma Eleven 3 Lightning Bolt is also an okay game.
    Tomodachi Life
    Smash
    Rythm Paradise
    Pokémon games
    (for character customization I'd go for Sun/Moon)
    I think that's all I can think of right now?

    I could whip out my 3DS and have a look at my games and post a long list with every must-have (in my opinion) for the 3DS, but that would take too long. So instead I'm just going to post some of my favorites that haven't been mentioned by others (in no particular order)
    Mario & Luigi Dream Team
    Bravely Second
    Paper Mario Sticker Star
    Zelda Triforce Heroes (single player is too tedious, great fun in multiplayer though)
    Poochy & Yoshi's Woolly World (I only played it on Wii U, but great game nonetheless)
    Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D (Only played this on Wii though)

    And here are some other good games:
    Rhythm Thief
    Tales of the Abyss
    Cave Story 3D (most people hate this version, but I rather enjoyed it)

    Maybe I'll think of some more later.

    Here are my recommendations:
    - Monster Hunter 4U (generations is just blah, too many new mechanics introduced and not a coherent storyline)
    - Fantasy Life (light rpg/whatever)
    - Rune Factory 4 (harvest moon + dungeon exploring, what else do you need? Kind of reminds me of Fantasy Life too)
    - Resident Evil Mercs (the physical game is ridiculous, only one save file that you can't delete by normal means, although)
    - Pokemon? I like Sun/Moon a lot for the new storyline and pokemon
    - Kirby Robobot (fun, but doesn't feel like classic kirby)

    E-Shop Only Titles:
    - Gunman Clive (old school jump and shoot platformer with fun bosses)
    - Binding of Isaac Rebirth (seriously, I spend more time playing this than dealing with anything else)

    Codename Steam: lost count of hours.
    Fantasy Life: 1000+ hours
    Pokemon games: time would probably be more in the years category and not hours.
    LBX is pretty good

    I recently installed Attack of the Friday Monsters! a Tokyo Tale.
    As someone who loves story above all else, this game is really worth checking out and apparently (not applicable to those using CFW to gain games ofc) it's a pretty rare game I believe.
