    Or rather, what series that I can play on my 3DS should I start? That means nes, snes, gbc, gb, gba, ds and 3DS.
    What I've played:
    The entire Fire Emblem Series
    The entire Professor Layton Series
    The entire Phoenix Wright Series
    All of the 3ds Zelda games
    999
    The entire Pokemon series
    other misc. stuff.
    I just finished Professor Layton and I've run out of games to play (except for Skyrim), what game series would you recommend? (If you do say a jrpg please make sure it isn't a traditional jrpg because I can't stand games like Chrono Trigger, Bravely Default and Final Fantasy).

    Yeah, that's always interested me a lot, do all of the games share an overarching plot or does each game have it's own thing?

    Um try castlevania, get the vc ones for old school, and play the nds and GBA ones for the metroid style ones. And there's also symphony of night on original PlayStation

    If you liked 999 you should play Virtues Last Reward and Zero Time Dilemma as well.

    Ever Oasis is also pretty good but the pacing for it is fairly slow.

    Binding of isaac. It will take you a few months at beat.

    The priginal nes zelda. Its a great game once you overcome the bad graphics.

    Ever oasis. Recently released and im already in love.

    Earthbound (begginings, earthbound and mother 3). The first was only released on wiiu in the official translation, but I think you can find it somewhere. Everybody say its a good game.

    Retro city rampage. Such a great game (only complaining about the short story)..

    Shovel knight. I dont care if you like other platformers... its so great

    Pokemon series (you can play all of them on 3ds) nothing to be said that hasnt already (edit- didnt see you already played all of them)

    Zelda a link to the past (play the gba ver. If you are on o3ds) the best game in the series. The snes is better then the gba version... also you will surely like this if you played albw and thought it was too easy

    Also:
    gta chinatown wars

    mario and luigi series- inside bowsers story is the best if you ask me (ds game). Adventure games, kinda rpg, pretty closed world but lots of fun...

    Ah, and DONT play the ds zeldas, they are waste of time

    I did for a bit and I actually didn't like it...
    I should replay it now though because I haven't played it in a while and maybe my opinion will change

    Try the rest of the zero escape series if you haven't already. If you have, I heard the 3ds port of battle toads played pretty well.

    I suggest:

    Legacy Games:
    - Mother 1/Earthbound Zero/Earthbound Beginnings
    - The World Ends With You (great game just needs a bit of practice with the battle system)
    - River City: Knights of Justice (beat 'em up with rpg elements + fantasy elements)

    3DS Games:
    - Gunman Clive 2 (more mechanics than the second one and a bit longer too)
    - Binding of Isaac (a randomly generated dungeon that takes inspiration from bullet hells - very good, although sometimes very frustrating)
    - Shovel Knight (it's a good platformer, although you will get frustrated from failing a lot)
    - Steamworld Dig (explore and solve puzzles)

    Imagination
    Corpse Party (don't play it if you have a weak stomach), Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, Dementium Remastered, Moon Chronicles, Resident Evil Revelations, Shovel Knight, Metal Gear Solid 3 Snake Eater 3D, and Rodea the Sky Soldier (only if you don't have the Wii version) are all games that I'd recommend. Though, I'm positively bias towards Rodea the Sky Soldier because it reminds me of a few anime that I loved as a kid, it has a nice steampunk vibe, it's made by YUJI F-ING NAKA, and it reminds me of one of the dreams I remember having as a kid (sleeping kind). Though, the Wii version is the better version, and is closer to what Yuji Naka wanted the final product to be like, rather than what became of it after his company was bought.

    Donkey Kong Country Returns: 3D. One of my favorite games of all time.
