Greatest Nintendo 3DS Games

41 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?

42 Ridge Racer 3DS

The drifts & the picture quality are so sensational & thrilling

43 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.

44 Fantasy Life

How this game is overlooked, I don't know.

For those who adore RPGs that allow them to fight monsters and kick ass, but also lay back and craft simple items like clothing, weapons, food, and furniture, this game is for you. Fantasy Life is a 3DS RPG with a vast world, one that can take upwards to 30 hours or so to actually complete the storyline and completely explore the world. Its world is amazing, huge, with tons of details- the map can't even capture how large it is due to many hidden caves, crevices, tunnels, and even floating islands! It has a nice, sweet story that keeps you interested but doesn't make you feel tied down to it at any time. The characters inside the game have witty and creative dialogue that keeps them interesting and fun to interact with. The game allows the user to have a party- where you can bring 2 NPCs you unlock along your adventure, or friends from online can come play with you! Fantasy Life has 12 different classes, split up into ones that focus ...more

One of the best games of all time. Perfect and incredibly fun!

45 Combat of Giants Dinosaurs
46 Code of Princess
47 Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

The best donkey kong video game ever

Fantastic game, worth adding to any 3DS library.

Its just regular Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii but with a different gamemode (New Mode) and for the 3DS. I love it! - aarond90

49 The Legend of Zelda: TriForce Heroes - 3DS

Relies too much on multiplayer, considering the singleplayer is a complete and utter joke...

50 Madden NFL Football 3DS
51 Mario Tennis Open

It's fun and it makes you feel happy. Only the Mario games do that so why isn't this in the top 10 instead it's in 27th. I know it just came out so it doesn't have a lot of votes but still come on.

This game was really cool, this should be higher - Ajkloth

52 Shovel Knight

Haven't played this, but at the time I am commenting, it must have been put on recently since it is at 77 - llamabaconllama37

Why is it so low? It! 's great,fun,and challenging!

53 Samurai Warriors Chronicles
54 Fire Emblem Fates

There is no doubt in my mind that this is the greatest video game of all-time. They changed how the Pair Up works, expanded the weapon triangle, and made weapons more interesting by giving them unlimited uses, but giving the more powerful weapons disadvantages so you have reason to use all sorts of weapons. These changes are what put it above Awakening for me (plus the fact that there are three paths). While there's not much good to be said about the stories in any of the three paths, the story has never really mattered to me. And I do really like some of the characters, especially Setsuna, Rinkah, Odin, and Arthur. I'm not stopping until I've sunk 500 hours of gameplay into this.

I will get this game in a few days or so! I'm extremly excited to start playing it!
I heard the story and gameplay are absolutely amazing and the game itself was just overall awesome! - CastlevaniaFanboy128

55 Yoshi's New Island

Here is how I would score the games of the Yoshi franchise.

Yoshi (on the NES/Virtual Console) gets a 6.9.

Yoshi (on the Game Boy) gets a 5.4.

Yoshi's Cookie (on the NES/Virtual Console) gets a 7.1.

Yoshi's Cookie (on the Game Boy) gets a 5.8.

Yoshi's Cookie (on the SNES) gets a 6.3.

Yoshi's Safari gets a 7.6.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island gets a 9.8 score.

Tetris Attack gets a 6.5 score.

Yoshi's Story gets a 7.7 score.

Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island gets a 6.4 score.

Yoshi's Universal Gravitation gets a 6.6 score.

Yoshi: Touch & Go gets a 5.7.

Yoshi's Island DS gets a 3.7.

Yoshi's New Island gets a 6.3.

Yoshi's New Island is kinda good in my opinion, but my favorite 3DS game is Super Smash Bros 4 (for Nintendo 3DS).

This is actually decent - MystoMesprit

56 Sonic Lost World

The 3DS version is far better than the Wii U version. Just my opinion.

58 Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan
59 Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Shadow Wars

This was the first 3DS game I got that I really fell in love with. It's a lot like Fire Emblem and Advance Wars, but different enough to make it feel like a new experience. You can get it pretty cheap on Amazon now, so I'd definitely recommend it to anyone, especially Fire Emblem fans.
