    It used to have its fair share of cancer titles, with some deliberately taking advantage of some of Nintendo policy, like Football Up being in the "special offer" section since the day it came out.

    I'm what you could call a "power gamer" for this console and I would play anything from the 3DS shop that looks "ok", but today I ended up getting nothing. Why? Because everything is TRASH. With the release of the Switch you'd think that developers would do the same thing they did with the DS and going full "fuck it" to provide the craziest or most awesome ideas, but no. We've got fake retro games and first-part games that make you ask why does Nintendo hate the 3DS so much. I'm very disappointed.

    By the way, if you know any good casual game for the 3DS I haven't played yet, please let me know.

    Ever played WarioWare: Touched? I've had it on my 3DS for a while now but just started playing it last night. Fun game!

    Hopefully VC counts in this discussion. :)

    Wait, is River City THAT River City for the nes? Is it available in Europe? Also I have played the rest except Tetris (I have the dsi version) and Pokemon rumble (I find it stupid. And I'm a bf pokefan).

    People complained that Nintendo was being too restrictive with the eShop. But when they loosened up, it opened the floodgates to shit. This is what happens when you don't allow a filter.

    A link to the past is a lot different then awakening... I wont tell ya what to do but still...
    Retro city rampage? Have u tried it? Great game...
    Triforce heroes- its a zelda but not really... a multiplayer spinoff. Short levels, lots of fun with friends and online... coop and pvp... even my friends that dont like zelda love this game
    Picross- all of them. Pokemon is my favorite. Also theres the "new" 3d one
    Binding of isaac- new3ds only- no way you completed it... one of the major reasons for me buying n3ds and not o3ds. Great roguelike-like game, just play it.

    Yes, you're right; I think both (NES and 3DS) RCR are on eshop. Not sure if EU has them, though. I'd definitely recommend both Tetris games if you don't have them. An upgrade from DSi, to say the least.
