    Hello, i have £60 and i'm looking for a good, non story based game, for the 3ds. I already have mario kart 7 and would wait for mario tennis but im starting to get bored of the 3DS so i need a good game. The game can be on the eshop or cart i don't really mind.

    if you're into mario games, why not give Mario 3d Land a try, it's pretty solid! I'd also suggest Resident Evil: Mercenaries 3D (personally so that I'd have someone else to play with!) it's not the new revelations but you should be able to pick it up used for a good price. As for download titles, if you have some Club nintendo points to waste (errrrm) I mean spend Mario's Picross is out for 100 coins. There's also Tetris on the eshop, which has online multiplayer, and is pretty fun to just pick up and play! If you don't have any money and just wanna putz around, check out some of the demos on the eShop too! Cheers

    and saberjoy is definitely right on Kid Icarus... should be worth the wait!!!

    I would second Resident Evil Mercs - it doesn't have a storyline per say, just beat up monsters and try to survive. Some of these moments can be quite unnerving, although.

    (Online multiplayer/randoms is pretty bad - they don't accept newbs and a couple of gun loadouts...my recommendation is to find someone you know on here or other forums that won't be annoyed by simple things in the game.)

    yeah i do want to get Mario 3d Land i just need to find a shop that doesn't sell it for £40 (yes, i know i have £60 but i don't want to spend it all on games)

    i guess it's time for me to get active on the forums then

    Pushmo is a pretty neat puzzle game, one of the highest rated 3DS games. Lots of content, it'll take a while to finish the entire game. $7 on the eShop.

    Super Mario 3D Land was pretty fun, although a bit short. If you're a Mario fan, don't hesitate in picking it up.

    Or you could just wait for Kid Icarus: Uprising, which is almost guaranteed to be an amazing game.

    I've never paid more than £30 for 3DS game, high street retailers are rip-offs, never go there.

    Shop online and its considerably cheaper.

    Amazon has it for £28.97 - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Super-Mario-Land-Nintendo-3DS/dp/B005FPMVH0/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330704483&sr=8-1

    I got the Zelda bundle and after I beat it I was in the same boat. Around that time Tales of the Abyss came out and I picked it up. It not really my kind of game, from what I thought, but I've been pleasantly surprised.

    Check that out maybe? Zelda is always good times. Im getting Kid Icarus Preorder so I get the free classic game. Can't beat 2 for one, even if it's old.

    Kid Icarus is definitely a good choice, in my (not so) humble opinion. :P I alread preordered and paid in full.

    Zelda: OoT 3D is also a perfect choice, if you don't have it.

    And I know a lot of people hate it, but Spider-Man: Edge of Time for 3DS is actually a halfway decent action game with an awesome story. You can find it for about $27 in gamestop (probably $20 or so online), so for the money, I think it's a good buy.
