Top Ten Nintendo DS/3DS Games

My favourites of these two consoles. If you have any gripes about my choices. That's your opinion. Not Mine! There will be no RPG's, because I don't like them. MY OPINION!

The Top Ten

1 New Super Mario Bros

The only way to save your progress is buy a mushroom house with star coins, both of which you eventually run out of

2 Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

While the original had better atmosphere, graphics, and more ghosts to offer, Dark Moon has better length, variety and personality. The things that matter the most to me in video games is length, variety and atmosphere, so if you like atmosphere play the original, but if you want personality, variety and length, Dark Moon is a go. 9.8/10

This over Smash. There is gonna be some hate. When ever I'm playing this game I always have a smile on my face. I simply enjoy the original combat system, of stunning, and sucking up ghosts. The bosses are amazing, with only one boss I don't like. And I liked playing through each completely different zones. - Nintendog

3 Super Smash Bros.

I love fighting games. With a good controls, and an over all good. I can't go over it all so this is very brief. - Nintendog

Mario Maker Stage Remix

4 Pokemon X and Y
5 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
6 Kirby Triple Deluxe

Kirby's is a beast! Trashing through waves of enemies with ease, beating bosses, and fun mini games, these are all staples of a Kirby game. Following Kirby as he climbs the dream stalk, to save King Dedede, from the clutches of Taransa. This game also epic HYPERNOVA ability. This game is long compared to most hand held games, so if you want a game that'll keep your attention for a while, this game is for you. - Nintendog

7 Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D

I voted New Leaf on the other list. I am voting my favorite game of all time on this one. I didn't vote it on the other list because it is not necessarily a 3DS game, but eh? - Dawscr

"Legend of Zelda at sixth? ". Yep, at number six. I can see that it's an amazing game, but it's not my type of game. Sorry I guess. The side quests are slow, and waiting around for something happen while the text box is up is so annoying. The main thing that makes it bad for is all the hype I've heard about Majoras Mask. Like the feeling of "There is a threat just looming down on you." I only noticed the moon a couple of times. "You will cry a lot." I only cried at the end of the "Anju & Kafei" side quest. It's still a good game. - Nintendog

8 Resident Evil: Revelations

I bought this because I needed a more adult game at the time, and instantly fell in love with it. I love the game as a whole, and the only gripe I have is the final boss. I love the feeling of killing an annoying enemy, it gives a feeling of satisfaction. I like all the characters. Except for the villain, and that back staber! - Nintendog

9 Sonic Rush

The only thought gonig my head as I play this game is "WHO-HO! ". I love speeding through each act of the zones, and I love the sound track. Exceptions are the boss themes, and Mirage Road's theme. I also love all the bosses in someway or another. From design, to the fight itself. The best game on the DS in MY OPINION. - Nintendog

10 Tomodachi Life

The Newcomers

? Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force: Herbert's Revenge

The game is nostalgic and brings back memories, and adds some newer missions never before seen on the site!

The Contenders

11 Mario Kart 7

Mariokart 7, in my opinion, really is just amazing. This game has some of my favorite tracks ever, and they are all spread among the 4 Cups that come with this game. One thing this game lacks is a basic single player versus mode. The retro tracks are okay, but are not consistent at all. The battle mode is decent, but not the best. This game is still great. The varied track design is awesome, and being able to customize your karts is a great feature. There are only 17 characters counting your Mii. But I would still recommend this game to anybody. 9.5/10 Awesome game.

Why ain't dis higher?

12 Need for Speed: ProStreet

Amazing sound track, I love racing games to death, good tracks, and some cool cars in the line up. With an awesome carrier mode, this a must fans of racing games in general. It's could be a bit hard to find because it was released when the DS was. It's still an awesome game that I still enjoy playing, and it's one of the first two games I got for my DSi. - Nintendog

13 Super Mario 64
14 Tetris Ultimate

TETRIS! A grand achievement for Nintendo. 10 player multiplayer! 8 player online play!
10 Modes! This games is a blast to play. My favourite mode Battle Ultimate. Going against the computer, the power ups, the epic remix of "Tetris, type A" going in the background, all adds up to an awesome mode. - Nintendog

15 Professor Layton and the Curious Village
16 Super Mario 3D Land

I voted this from 11 to 9, but it needs to be one - gemcloben

17 Pokémon Sun and Moon

This should be in the top ten.

This is arguably one of the best Pokémon games Nintendo has made. It includes one of my favorite storylines in the franchise, and the new Pokémon are great. What's not to like?

18 Skylanders: Swap Force

"Skylanders, at number ten. Trap Team is better anyway.". Trap Team is the worst of the 3DS games, so Swap Force is the next best pick. Count Moneybone is a cool villain, with a good plan. Turn all of Skylander undead, and since he's the lord of the undead, he will rule over all of Skylander. Good areas, ranging from the Japanese "Samurai Isles", to a Mexican style land of the dead. - Nintendog

19 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

It a good game!

20 Sonic Colors
21 Mario Kart DS
22 Pokemon Heartgold & Soulsilver
23 Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

26? this game is awesome!

24 Animal Crossing: New Leaf
25 Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies

I haven't played it yet, but I know nick, he never stops surprising me.

26 Sonic Generations
27 Metroid: Samus Returns
28 Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright

Its an awesome rpgs

29 Mario Party: Island Tour
30 Mario Party: Star Rush
31 Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

Best 3ds game ever!

32 Miitopia

I wish this game got more recognition from more people.

33 Xenoblade Chronicles 3D
