22 Star Fox 64 3D

I love the N64. It is such an inspiration to the 3DS. Star Fox 64 is a wondrous, heavenly video game and its 3DS remake? A modern classic! Now, let's see these classic N64 video games and their 3DS remake.

There is Star Fox 64 3D. There is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D. Can't there be a Super Mario 64 3DS?! Super Mario 64 for the Nintendo 64 is my favorite video game of all time.

I agree with the above comment! The 3ds needs to come out with n64 originals. I would love to see them release Kirby 64 and donkey kong 64 on 3ds. Although I think the reason super Mario 64 is not on 3ds is because it was released again on the original ds. Still though, it would be cool to have a version on 3ds with enhanced graphics.

23 Pokemon Alpha Sapphire

I love this Pokemon x should be updated to let primals and rayquaza with dragon ascent join


Fun fun fun

Fun, but why can't they update X and Y? I LOATHE the Kalos rules...

24 Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

Fighting huge monsters is really fun! - Ajkloth

25 Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Super paper Mario was not better than this although it had a better a story line but I have to mention that none of the Mario games in the paper Mario or Mario and Luigi spinoff series's are bad

This game can be hard but its addicting

Worst paper Mario game ever

26 Bravely Default

A game based off of the pre VII old-school Final Fantasy games with a few twists, Bravely Default has a captivating story, fun battle system, beautiful art, and amazing music. While it has a few glaring flaws, it's still an amazing game and will always be a favorite of mine.

What is this game doing at 16!

This is the best Nintendo RPG out there.

Favorite 3ds and RPG ever

27 Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer

Don't kill me but this game is better (in my opinion) than Animal Crossing: New Leaf, because this doesn't rely on real-time - cam1922

Oh my gosh! It looks SUPER fun! Except from all of my online friends are playing it :(

This game... Is actually really fun! I love the Happy Home Network and the custom designs mean you could create a Mario level, a Chanel boutique, a Pokemon pixel art store... The amiibo card feature is ok, I suppose, although not necessary.

28 Pokemon Sun

This should go way higher. The game looks to be the best in the entire main series so far. - ModernSpongeBobSucks


How is this not in the top 10? Pokémon Sun and Moon were highly anticipated and are in the running for the best Pokémon games of all time. It has one of my favorite storylines of all Pokémon games and some great new Pokémon to go along with it. What's not to like?

29 Sonic Generations

I Can't Believe This Is Below Sticker Star And Island Tour, I Mean Those Two Games Are Very Mediocre But This Should Be Much Higher - VideoGamefan5

This should be top 1!

Seriously, why is Mario Kart 7 top 1?!

Sonic Generations, the game that really brought Sonic back to his high pedestal. This should be much higher. - DCfnaf

I think this was supposed to be 'Sonic Lost World', which is a great game!

30 Mario Party Island Tour

Mario Party 1 gets a 7.4.

Mario Party 2 gets a 7.2.

Mario Party 3 gets a 7.0.

Mario Party 4 gets a 4.6.

Mario Party 5 gets a 4.8.

Mario Party 6 gets a 1.2.

Mario Party Advance gets a 4.6.

Mario Party 7 gets a 1.1.

Mario Party 8 gets a 1.5.

Mario Party DS gets a 1.7.

Mario Party 9 gets a 1.3.

Mario Party: Island Tour gets a 1.0.

I can't believe Island Tour is on the list. This game sucks! And why is Princess Peach in this game?! Why is she playing soccer & baseball with her hair down & in a dress?! I am going to hate Mario Party 10 & beyond.

This game is also top 1 on "Worst 3DS Games List". And there's almost nothing decent about this game. Princes Peach had no reason to be in this game. Rosalina does since her design is much more beautiful, as well as her voice and her appearance and even her attractiveness.

Princess Peach is one of the most important characters in the Mario series, what do you mean she had no reason to be on the game - LarrytheFairy

31 Rayman 3D
32 Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

Underrated and so overlooked game!

33 Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure V 1 Comment
34 Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympics

This is a really good game. I love the graphics and I think it's the best 3ds game for 3d. It should be at least in the top 10. - Checkee77

I know why it is not on the top 10. this thing game out during the Games in 2012! but I love replaying and replaying. I've beat everything in both data. they should make or will make Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic games, but with more playable characters and a better story.

36 Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance

Great game that is loved by thousands! Great gameplay and all makes this a good contender of 3DS game of the year.

This game deserves the top 1 spot as Kingdom Hearts is perfect (especially the Japanese versions).

This game is by far the best 3ds game and it even has the best graphics. There are vast open worlds to explore as well.
there are virtually no glitches as well

37 Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

This game is not only the best 3DS game ever released, but probably the best game ever. It contains brutal amounts of heart wrenching twists, vicious death scenes and destructive emotional rides that will leave you shaken to the bone. Containing 26 endings that will have you re-playing scenes again and again to sift out the truth this is a must have for anyone with a pulse. If you don't own a 3DS then get one for this game alone, I promise it is worth it. A word or warning though, if you have a heart, prepare for it to be ripped up into millions of pieces in the search for escape.

A game that improved in every way from it's predecessor in every area, but in my opinion, fell just short for whatever reason. Maybe it was the fact that it's essentially the same premise as 999 so the intrigue had already gone away. Maybe it's the characters I didn't grow as attached to. That being said, all the problems with 999 have been fixed, and even some things that weren't ever a problem were taken to the next level. A must-play, but definitely pick up 999 and play that first.

Quite simply one of the best video games EVER made. If you own a 3DS you owe it to yourself to play this.
