    More or less all high quality RPG, advenure or nintendo games would compete in this list.

    Fire emblem fates, Xenoblades, zelda or mario serie, ace attorney, etc, will probably be listed by most of people

    hipsters migh speak about eshop or indi games :3

    Here are mine, in order :)

    1. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. A perfect recreation of a wonderful tribute to one of the greatest games ever made
    2. Donkey Kong Country SNES VC. My favourite game ever on any system. I still play it after 22 years
    3. Super Mario 3D Land. This game is objectively brilliant, and I'd love it even if I wasn't a Mario fanboy
    4. Mario Kart 7. The best portable MK ever in my opinion. Me and my bf love playing this in bed :)
    5. LoZ: A Link Between Worlds. Really great to have an updated Zelda adventure on the go and I really enjoyed playing through this one
    6. Starfox 64 3D. I loved the original, and the 3DS version is even better.
    7. Picross e series. I love Picross games and these are such good value for money. I started playing months ago and am still working my way through e5, then just e6 to go :)
    8. New Super Mario Brothers 2. I know this game gets a lot of flak for being too easy, but it's still fun. Some of the new power ups are great, and the surprise second set of worlds is a wonderful bonus
    9. Nano Assault EX. Nice twin stick shooter with cool 3D graphics
    10. Putty Squad. The game itself isn't great, but it reminds me of the Amiga days and fills me with nostalgia. I like that feeling :)

    Without any particular order:

    Resident Evil Revelations
    Shin Megami Tensei 4
    Xenoblade Chronicles 3D
    Ridge Racer (well, it's the best - of the few - racing game on the 3DS)
    Theatrhythm Final Fantasy - Curtain Call
    Bravely Default/Second
    Fire Emblem Awakening/Fates
    Kid Icarus Uprising
    Devil Survivor 2: Record Breaker
    Monster Hunter 3U/4U/Generations

    Mine are (no order, just a list)

    Shin Megami Tensei 4 (although it takes a lot of grinding to get past some areas)
    MH 4U (not listing Generations, as it feels like a nostaglia trip for other MH players, and that's a sucky thing)
    Steamworld Dig
    Swords and Darkness (reminds me of old school beat them ups, but with more movesets and an RPGish feel)
    Kirby Robobot Planet (doesn't feel like a Kirby game, but has a lot of fun stuff to do)
    LoZ A Link Between Worlds - feels short, but still feels fresh.
    RE: Mercs 3D - one of the first games I've played on the system. Feels like a mini-game at first, but then completely grows on you.
    Weapon Shop De Omasse (I'm not a giant fan of music/rthymn games, but the narrative of this kept me coming back - you make weapons for adventurers, and basically listen in on the fights and everything else. Makes me chuckle like an idiot sometimes.)
    Rune Factory 4
    Fantasy Life - makes me laugh and it's an RPG where you can build your world without having to fight all the time.

    Ohhhh boy.

    Tale of the Abyss: Tales of the Abyss, is a PS2 port to the 3DS. I am currently playing it right now, and it already made it to my top 10. The reason for that is because of its battle system, and the depths of the RPG system, which made me fall in love with the game. I also love the character designs, with my number one being Tear's. I'm still pretty early on in the game, so I can't really say much, but what I can say for sure, is that the main character is a spoiled kid, which leaves MANY, MANY rooms for amazing developments later on, which is what I am expecting.

    Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance: Oh man, I have many, MANY reasons to love this game, but for time's sake, I'm just going to list a few.

    - Flow Motion. I love this. You get to jump around walls, go on roof-tops, explore, find treasure chests, and more, which makes this game way, way more appealing and interesting to tour around and discover chests!
    - The GRAPHICS! This game, to be honest, is one of the best looking game on the 3DS I've ever seen. The graphics looked superb in 3DS standard, and the framerate didn't drop all that much for me.
    - It's encouraging me to play other KH games. Yes, I know, I played KH wrong, but I don't care! This was my first KH game, but I loved it! So, I am going to go out, buy, and play all the mainstory KH games!
    - Rewards. The stuff this game offers you are really cool. The chests contains a variety of things such as new moves, items, and money. Most of the new moves you obtain through chests are really GOOD moves, like Balloon.

    Okay, that's enough. Next game.

    Ace Attorney: Trilogy: Ah, this game is a MUST HAVE for every 3DS owners imo. This package of greatness contains the first 3 games in the Phoenix Wright series: Ace Attorney, Ace Attorney: Justice For All, and Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations. This game, is about the court. You start out as an apprentice lawyer, helping, and defend innocent citizens who are accused to be the mastermind of these cruel crimes! Crimes that get you in really, really big trouble, and your job, is to go, and investigate those crimes, find evidence, and use the evidence to defend your client! It may sound boring, but trust me, it gets really, really good. Some of the cases are beautiful. Especially case 5 of the first game, and case 4 of the second game. Oh man, you must, must play this.

    Bravely Second: Ah, Bravely Second... I love this game so much. It reminded me so much of Final Fantasy, and I love it! This game, is a sequel to the first game, Bravely Default, which includes new characters and plot! You don't really need to play Bravely Default to understand the plot, because they are completely unrelated, but if you want to understand and know who some of the characters are, then you must play Bravely Default (why wouldn't you? It's a great game). Bravely Second just took Bravely Default, and enhanced it for me. Throughout the game, you will encounter these blue quest marks on your map. Those, are side quests. The side quests offers you more jobs (classes) you cannot get through just playing the story alone. These side quests are really fun to play through, plus you get some of the backstory of the enemies you encountered in the first game. What made the job really fun to me, is having the choice to choose 1 class over the other, which makes it REALLY hard to do so, because either way, you will feel like crap for choosing one but not the other. Why? Because the game makes you feel like crap. Seriously, the game make you choose things like, leave your teammate hungry, stuck underground and sacrifice your food to a dragon and let it practice this extremely powerful move to bust out of the underground, which may or may not happen, or instead, just offer the food to your teammate and wait for help. It's really difficult choosing between the two jobs. Trust me, it may not make sense here, but it will in the game. I also enjoyed the story of the game. You literally have to save the world again from a God, and clash in an epic battle with him. Just go out and get this game.

    Monster Hunter 4: Ultimate/Generation: Everything about this game is awesome. The level of depths Capcom put into the class system, weapons, upgrades, etc. is crazy. Especially for a 3DS game. The title of the game is just as it suggested. You hunt monsters. However, it's not that simple. This game requires skills. What I love about this game is that it encourages multiplayer, and multiplayer is what makes it fun. Gather some friends, brainstorm, strategize, and hunt! Each monster are so unique. They have their own movesets, and they aren't dumb. The monsters in this game are DEADLY. Meaning you have to be extremely careful. Bring the correct gears, learn and adapt to the monster's patterns, and profit. Great game. Everyone should own this game.

    I have to go now, so my list won't be a top 10, but a top 5.

    Oh god, number off the games? Ugh. I must order the games :mellow:

    1. Bravely Default. Amazing story, even if it does get repetitive
    2. Tales of the Abyss. ITS TALES. 'Nuff said
    3. Persona Q. My first Persona game, and definitely won't be my last. The game should have been horrid (Persona/EOU crossover) and yet it was beautiful
    4. Etrian Odyssey Untold; The Milenium Girl. My first EO. I love the 'narration' of it, and I really like the story/gameplay
    5. Fire Emblem Awakening. I'm probably biased since this was my first FE, but I enjoy this game alot.
    6. Fates. I enjoyed it quite a bit (More if there was less censorship T_T) but overall great game
    7. Bravely Second. MUCH Weaker than Bravely Default... It kept the very core so it was still good... Even if what happened to Yew's brother was sadly predictable
    8. Stella Glow. Has predictability issues like Second (I realized something about Elcrest 10 mins in -_-) but the game reveals the obvious quite soon, and it has a long story. Nice FE-esque battle system too
    9. Sm4sh. Great Pick-Up-And-Ply, and everyone knows what it is
    10. Scribblenauts Unlimited. Come on, you know just as well as I do it's fun making the most insane things. You want a nuclear kitty? done.

    "ITS TALES. 'Nuff said"

    Are the other Tale games really good? I heard from people that Zestiria was a meh button smashing game, so I'm not sure whether to play it or just watch the anime

    Zestria is alright, but one of the weaker entries imho
    and it is a bit messier than the other entries, battle wise anyway

    I have a copy of this courtesy of a friend, but I haven't started it yet. Is it really a must play? Last Tales game I played was Hearts R. Also have a copy of Zesteria for the PS4 but only played a few hours before putting it into my backlog.

    Honestly can't blame you for backlogging Zestria. It's a really weak entry
    Abyss 3DS really is a must play imo.
    A, it doesn't have horrid loading times like the PS2 version
    B. Battles aren't the same (Y'Know, unless you've spent too much time grinding and can kill with one hit)

    Plus it's an essential according to
    so that's also some good reassurance

    You won't regret starting Tales, trust me :)
