NWR Staff 3DS Playtime Round Four

Two years and man, are we playing a bunch of 3DS.

Most of the Nintendo World Report staff has had their 3DS systems for more than two years, and we have all played a lot of games. So, for the fourth time, check out each staffer's five most played games on their 3DS. We're getting to a point where we have more variety, as close to 50 games are represented in the 21 different lists we have.

Mario Kart 7 made the most appearances, showing up on 10 lists. After that, Super Mario 3D Land, Kid Icarus: Uprising, and Ocarina of Time 3D all appeared on nine lists, New Super Mario Bros. 2 was on eight, and Fire Emblem Awakening, this year's hottest game, was on seven. I assume once we get to the next go-round, Animal Crossing and Luigi's Mansion will have more appearances.

For those third-party fans, very few games appeared on multiple lists. Resident Evil: Revelations, Theatrhythm, Kingdom Hearts 3D, and Etrian Odyssey IV were the only third-party games to show up on more than one list, and they only all appeared on two.

Check out all the lists below, and feel free to share your own in the forums!

Carmine looks like a great Swapnote penpal.

Leo13April 16, 2013

Really? 80 hours on Swapnote?

CericApril 16, 2013

Alright
1. Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (81:26)
2. Kid Icarus: Uprising (37:26)
3. Skylanders (22:38)
4. Super Mario 3D Land (16:47)
5. Fire Emblem Awakening (16:02)

And the only one of those I can truly say that I've beaten is Skylanders.  As you can see I'm not a great Video Game Player.

I joined a community full of active swapnote users. I get like 30-40 notes a day from these people. It's hard work keeping up with them!

If you want in I could arrange that... but be warned that if you don't clear out your mailbox for a couple days you might have to sit there and download 50-80 notes!

TJ SpykeApril 16, 2013

Mine is pretty bad. I havent bought any new games in so long, or even play that many games now.
