    1) Animal Crossing: New Leaf (116:04) -- This is actually my sister's. I think I might have played it for 5 hours max :P Didn't even know she played that much
    2) Bravely Default (103:01) -- Because I 100%'ed that one
    3) Pokémon Black 2 (102:41)
    4) Samurai Warriors: Chronicles (96:09)
    5) Pokémon White (87:48)
    6) Dragon Quest VI (68:41) -- Surprised I invested so much time in this one
    7) Pokémon X (58:06)
    8) Pokémon Platinum (56:51)
    9) Pokémon Omega Ruby (42:58)
    10) The World Ends With You (42:24)

    Other games around 40h are Pokémon Pearl and OoT.
    Hmm, I thought those Pokémon games would be higher up.
    I think I might be playing on my Vita more (at least longer/game, to get achievements etc)

    My ranking:
    1) Yokai Watch (89:00)
    2) Pokemon X (40:06)
    3) Pokemon Alpha Sapphire (26:11)
    4) Bravely Default (14:45)
    5) Super Smash Bros. 3DS (8:09)
    6) Cubic Ninja (6:33) (Homebrew got no sound yet)
    7) Pokemon ORAS Demo (4:26)
    my other games are still less than the 1 hour mark. I expect TLoZ: OoT to get some more love.

    1) Pokemon Y 869:29
    2) Animal Crossing 627:36
    3) Pokemon Alpha Sapphire 324:02
    4) Monster Hunter 3 U 158:45
    5) Monster Hunter 4 U 133:09
    6) StreetPass Mii Plaze 116:14
    7) Alex Rider Storm Breaker 107:56;)
    8) Fantasy Life 97:22
    9) Nintendo E-shop 60:44
    10) Super Smash Bros 58:04
    11) Mario & Luigi Dream Team 36:13
    12) Legend of Zelda, A link between worlds 34:21

    i am both surprised and ashamed at the numbers... though i'm sure they are incorrect, I've had 2 system transfers and sent 2 units to nintendo for defect repair in the past. Most of my older titles seem to be missing their playtime, i'm sure i've put more than 5 hours in luigi's mansion 2, resident evil revalations, kid icarus uprising, mario 3d world, zelda OoT, the list goes on. . .

    i guess the top 5 might be corrrect, the rest in my log is missing most of its playtime it seems.

    Also i've come to realize that the 3DS completely replaced my need for a TV console.

    I guess the console counts time downloading games as having the eShop open, even if it's in download later mode.

    To be fair, about 300 hours of mine were spent on the cycling simulator.

    1.Alex rider stormbreaker - 338:36 (641 times) ;) did not own a DS so had some catching up to do!
    2.Polemon Y 288:38 (153 times)
    3.Super Smash Bros. 177.37 (221 times)
    4.Fire Emblem Awakening 93:44 (162 times)
    5. Pokemon OR 81:06 (42 times)
    6.Kid Icarus 52:33 (88 times) - good times on multiplayer!
    7.Tales of the Abyss 42:02 (46 times) - and still have ways to go with the story
    8.Kingdom Hearts 3D 34:41 (40 times)
    9.A Link Between Worlds 29:51 (31 times)
    10. Ocarina of Time 3D 28:34 (26 times)

    honorable mention to 11th and 12th places:
    MK7 with 21:27
    Etrian Odyssey Untold with 19:55.
    and RE:R is way in the back with 9 hours, though it's a good game, it just constantly getting overshadowed with better titles....

    Edit:
    just as a side note, ever since I got the 3DS I noticed an alarming lack of interest in my home consoles and PC....
    I have no reason to sit in the living room anymore....

    when i´m going to play one of these, I always save and close the 3DS, I don´t like to close the game. so I´m stuck with 10-20 hours of gameplay per ''session'' each time.

    Huh? They are just the same title on 3 different systems with minor differences...So in reality your reaching 4k hours soon in a game. And that amount of play time in any game, even a MMO is insane.

    10. SaveDataFiler 0:39 (33 times)

    I don't know why the numbers are so skewed lol. I remember playing Pokemon Y for alot longer until my save got corrupted, though. I'm slightly ashamed at the amount of games I actually have, both legit and pirated, that I have barely put any time towards.

    I'm trying to learn to speedrun A Link Between Worlds, hence the large time there. Mii Plaza is just embarrassing, hehe. I have no idea how I've spent so much time in System Settings.

    I'm pretty sure the system doesn't count it as play time.

    yup, it doesn´t count the game's time when the 3DS is closed(duh)
    play 2 hours today>close the lid>play 3 hours tommorow>5 hours on this ''Session''.
    if i close and open the game/application again, the average time spent is 2:30 hours,if opened 3 times with 5 hours > ~1:40
    I like to keep the Average game time above 10 Hours.

    insane? In Japan many Japanese people playing Monster Hunter series over 1000 hours ~ 2000 hours. Some core fun player play over 5000 hours more. how do you think about this?
