    Hello, recently I've been wondering which 3DS game I should get. I'm not sure which one I want the most, but these are the three I have in mind:

    1) Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
    2) Shin Megami Tensei 4
    3) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D


    I would appreciate any input on any of those titles :) Because I seriously don't know which of those I want the most/Is the best choice.

    Have you ever played Ocarina on any other platform? If not, definitely get that.

    If you have already played Ocarina, it's still very much worth getting, IMO, but you might want to get something you haven't already played before getting that.

    Can't really comment on the other two as I haven't played those.

    I've only played Ocarina of time on an emulator, and only got through the 3rd temple, so it would be a good idea.

    I own OOT in many different forms and still enjoy the 3ds version because it looks so nice and is portable
    The other 2 games id pick SMT over MH3 unless u are gonna have a friend to play with otherwise i find the MH games kinda boring like an mmo without the other player interactions.

    Stay away from MH3 if you dont have somebody nearby to play with. Soloing most of the content is a huge drag. That or get the WiiU version as it has online multiplayer.

    I would strongly reccomend SMT4 however. The beginning is a bit rough unless you are a seasoned smt player but it is an incredibly rich game. Story is good, characters are well fleshed out, combat requires thought and strategy or even the most basic encounters will spell death and fusing demons is quite addicting. Im 90 hours in on my second playthrough and still enjoy the game.

    I've played persona 3 and I know the SMT4 is sort of like it (when it comes to fighting) so I will be fairly familiar, I think I'm leaning towards SMT4 atm.

    None. Wait for Pokemon X/Y :D
    OoT3D if you haven't played OoT before is definitely a must have otherwise it's not much different and I'm not sure it's worth it just for upgraded graphics. I got it anyway because I'm a sucker for OoT and I don't regret my purchase, but it was rather needless.

    I'm already getting Pokemon Y (Which is why I didn't list it) But I need something to keep me occupied before it comes out >>

    Hmm, does anyone know if Kid Icarus Uprising is worth it?

    1) Gyakuten Saiban 5
    2) Pokemon X/Y

    just wait for them

    @ Kid Icarus... yeah... no, not my style, many described it as "Kinda like Metroid Prime Hunters"

    Which is the best way to explain it really (except that a new MPH would kick Icaru's a** => That pun was unintented).

    I don't like Kid a Icarus all that much.

    Shin Megami Tensei 4 all the way, the series is just buckets of fun. I haven't even played 4 yet, but I've played enough Shin Megami Tensei to make that judgement. :yaynds:

    We can't play SMT4 :(

    I did buy Soul Hackers yesterday like a boss. Now my 3DS will no longer be covered in dust.

    It's a must buy IMO. One of the best games currently out for the 3DS.

    I'm up to 100 hours already in MH3. Once you get properly started you'll just drop everything else you have in your hands to keep playing it.

    I'd say it's worth it. Had tons of fun with it, about 50 hours playtime and I feel like I didn't even play it that much.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    I really like the Ace Attorney series, but kind of sad that I'll will be a digital only release in NA :(
