The 3DS 10th Anniversary Thread

As an official 3DS ambassador I come bringing good news about the 3DS. Beware the so called "successor" The Nintendo Switch. It is nothing but a false prophet.

Nothing but crickets in here? Does no one like the 3DS? :(

What a great little system that thing is. Despite its rocky start, it ended up becoming one of Nintendo's best systems, I feel. There's a lot of games on it I enjoyed, and I also didn't have a DS so it opened up a lot for me. As ubiquitous as is the Switch, I kind of miss some of the special features that came from the 3DS being a dedicated handheld.

I still have some more games to play on it, but, if I were forced to choose today, my top ten would probably look something like this:

1. Luigi's Mansion 2
2. The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes
3. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon
4. Fantasy Life
5. Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan
6. Fire Emblem Awakening
7. Puzzle & Dragons Z / Super Mario Bros. Edition
8. Monster Hunter Stories
9. Super Mario 3D Land
10. Metroid Prime Federation Force

Great idea Mop! It is the 10th anniversary so a top ten list is apt. Here is mine:
  • Mega Man Legacy Collection
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Line Between Worlds
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy
  • Metroid: Samus Returns
  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
  • The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D
  • Sega 3D Classics Collection
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
  • Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon

As you can see I am a big fan of the stereoscopic 3D. Only my first and last picks did not make use of it. I am one of the few people still buying 3D Blu-rays and think it is the best way to experience video media, second only to VR. So I don't mind wearing glasses or a headset, but to see 3D without them is still magical. It reminds me of when I would see those hologram cards when I was a kid. The 3DS is actually my first Nintendo handheld. I was on team Game Gear back in the day and missed out on the GBA and DS generations of handhelds. I still have a few games on the backlog and wish list but without traveling this past year my playtime on the 3DS has diminished. I find it hard to play a handheld at home when there is a giant TV/Stereo there. So my 3DS and Vita only get played when traveling. Are others the same?

It isn't in the funhouse so yes.

I'm happy with thinking pokepal148 is just eating a stick of butter. It seems about right for him. I don't need no stinking facts.

I'll be honest, I debated moving this thread the Funhouse for the first week after it was posted but decided to leave it here to be safe. After all, we've got a certain level of standards for Funhouse content and the OP fell way below them.

I still have a ton of 3DS games I need to play.  Most are RPG's that I've put off because RPG's take so long.  It's been over 2.5 years since I last played it because the Switch has such an insane amount games that have kept me busy since then.

I finally got out my Wii U last summer so maybe this summer I'll finally get my 3DS out again.

I still bring mine along for car & doc waiting rooms. Monster Hunter 4U's online seemed alive & well last time I peeked into it. Though that was a month or so before Rise launched.

Mission...complete?

I'm surprised I don't have more 3DS games. I only have 15. Well, technically 16, but I never opened The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes. A friend cleared out Five Below's stock and gave me one. I think I missed my chance to play it.
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
  • Super Mario 3D Land
  • Castlevania: The Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate
  • Super Smash Bros For 3DS
  • Resident Evil Revelaitons
  • Metroid: Samus Returns
  • Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D
  • Mario Kart 7
  • Code of Princess
The rest are ports which I didn't want to include, games I didn't like (New Super Mario Bros. 2) or games I didn't think I played enough (Kid Icarus Uprising).
