    Hello, GBATemp!

    Now, I know what you're probably thinking. "Why the hell is this question being asked for fucking billionth time?!" Well, the other threads had different choices that I didn't like.
    EDIT: I want a game that I can replay several times. If you have another game that you want to recommend, post in the comments! (It can be an upcoming game like after Christmas or something!)

    Please forgive me. However, thanks in advance!:grog:

    RE:Revelations (looks amazing and, well, it's Resident Evil), Mario Kart (for the Multiplayer aspect) or Paper Mario (because it really looks like fun). ;)

    Leaning towards RE. :)

    Well multiplayer isn't really a big aspect because I'm gonna be the only person I know that has a 3DS. That's what my ak2i's for. Imma get an R4i Gold 3DS.
    I'm looking for a game that I can replay several times and it won't get boring.

    Well, I might wait for Donkey Kong Country Returns. But I'm not really a Fire Emblem guy.

    You can always add people's friend codes on here and play multiplayer games with us :P
    I suggest mk7. Good replay ability and multiplayer.
    There are also some very nice E-Shop titles that can last you awhile, such as Pushmo, Crashmo, Cave Story +, etc. cheap too.

    Good point. That is, if I can get my wifi to work on my 3DS...

    Paper Mario Sticker Star.
    You helped me a lot choosing my 3DS. I'm hooked to it, on the last boss, has great adventures, mysteries and lots more great things you should check out.

    You failed to mention Kid Icarus: Uprising.

    Outside of that, try either Super Mario 3D Land or Revelations.

    You're talking to the game, right? :unsure:
    Well, I don't know a whole lot about Kid Icarus. If you want you (or someone else) can tell me about it...

    All the choices in the poll look good, grab any one of them. When I bought my 3DS at launch I didn't have choices like you have.

    Mario kart = most replayable of any 3DS game thus far, online its hard to fault now they have fixed the buggy tracks

    Resident evil = single player isnt replayable in my opinion, raid mode is good for a while but gets boring when you get paired online with someone who just 1 hit kills all the zombies, much better playing raid mode solo.

    Tales of the abyss = long game, great story/battle system and has a new game plus feature and 2 harder difficultys upon completion giving you plenty of incentive to replay it.

    Too many disconnection errors.

    Also, Tales of the Abyss is shit.

    Here's my list of recommendations:

    Virtue's Last Reward = Visual Novel with a huge mind fuck twist at the end.
    Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask = Honestly, how can you not like Professor Layton?
    Paper Mario Sticker Star = Beautiful Graphics and charming music, may not be the best PM game in terms of battling, but still pretty enjoyable.
    Super Mario 3D Land = Amazing. Think of Mario Galaxy in a way.
    Ocarina of Time = Doesn't matter if you played it before or not, this is deserving of a buy.

    Action adventure and Sin & punishment 2 like on rail shooter type, so basically there's ground levels and air battles. Bloody good.

    Dialog is amazing and full voice acting. They talk non-stop through the game-play.

    Tons of content, great online multi-player is the icing on the cake that makes it even more godly.

    To make a note, if you're left-handed you absolutely need a CPP, and either way you need to spend a bit of time (took me a half-hour) to get used to the controls, but once they work they're perfect for the fast-paced gameplay.

    To describe it as best I can, think Sin and Punishment or Star Fox for the air battle. It's an on-rails shooter with only the ability to fly around the screen to dodge attacks.
    Ground battle is a third-person shooter, some describe it as a mix between Star Fox and Zelda or God of War.

    There's tons of replay value after the ten-hour campaign. Difficulty scale, 360 achievements, loads of weapons (around 105 not counting any treasures), powers and music tracks to unlock, idols, AR Card battles and multiplayer (which is much better with friends as you get no customization with the random battles. Not even map selection). The graphics are gorgeous for a 3DS game, the music is awesome and the dialogue is hilarious and never takes itself seriously for more then a minute (which is a blessing looking at the dialogue in Revelations). Some reviewers (Fuck you Sterling) complained about the controls, but most say they got used to it quite quickly, and the game was designed for this kind of control (although the fact that you can't use a CPP for dual-analog but you can use the fucking face buttons is pathetic)
