Worst Nintendo 3DS Games

The Top Ten
1 Mario Party: Island Tour Mario Party: Island Tour Product Image

For a long time. Mario party was the definitive party games. Most games didn't add much new. But they did polish on the previous games issues. Even Mario party advance and mario party ds were solid titles. But one day. The series developer. Hudson soft. Was bought by konami. And nintendo needed a new developer. So they hired IndieCube. And they ruined the series. Mario party 9 and 10 were some of the worst party games ever. But when island tour was announced. I was excited. I thought it would save the series. But Nope. It had linear boards. Trash minigames. And bad music. It was trying to copy the wii party formula. And although I like wii party. Indiecube failed to replicate it. This game is unfinished and boring. If you want to play a eds mario party. Then play star rush.

I do agree that people are harsh towards the newer Mario Party games, because this game isn't really BAD or anything, but Nintendo completely changed the formula for 9, IT, and 10. Takes away much of the fun factor and strategy with those linear boards as opposed to boards with many paths that you go around yourself, less minigames, and the goal of going to the end of the track for the most mini stars as opposed to going around the board that ends in a set amount of turns, for which we can plan ahead and think about how we use our items and save coins from minigames after every turn and events on the board to receive stars. and Cube just isn't a great company.

So... this game is #1 instead of an ACTUAL bad 3DS game!?
I'm disappointed of y'all! All of y'all! I'm talking about the ones who think that THIS deserves to be in the list in the first place!
Those people REALLY need to do some research...
I mean, seriously, I've known (and played) WAY worse 3DS games, Operation COBRA for an example.

*Also, I actually like Mario Party: Island Tour. Despite the formula changing as the series grew, I still enjoyed it (mainly because of the minigames.)

I used to be a die-hard Mario Party fan. There's nothing wrong with the series itself. But the last two games have been really bad. The last good game was Mario Party DS, and that came out like seven years ago. And Mario Party 10 doesn't look too promising either.

2 Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon Product Image

This is one of the best games I've ever played. I have not played the first Luigi's mansion, and I really want Luigi's Mansion 3 soon. But who was stupid enough to put this on the list? I know that whatever gets put on the list originally is up to one person, and everyone has their own opinion, but once this was on the list, who was stupid enough to vote for it? If it's too complicated at the beginning, I understand. I think when you play this game for the first time, the first mansion is the hardest part of the game. But once you beat it, you get the hang of the puzzles and the rest of the game is a much smoother ride, aside from a couple difficult parts.

I think that Luigi's mansion 2 is not so complicated. BUT I actually liked more the first game, because of the flashlight. The light bulb of this game makes a bit slower the actions. This I just an opinion, I do not want to offend people that are fans of this new feature.

This game is awesome! Who put This here?

Screw You Losers Saying This Game Sucks, You Obviously Don't Know "Quality" Games - VideoGamefan5

3 Bird Mania 3D

Never heard of it sounds bad - B1ueNew

Just hearing the title of it makes me uninterested! - docreywashere

Worthless piece of crap

WHY IS Mario PARTY ISLAND TOUR AT number 1? THIS GAME IS WORSE

4 Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Mario and Luigi: Dream Team Product Image

Not bad. Even though I voted it. But, I only vote to object to your opinions or give my own opinions. This was a huge step up from other Mario RPG's. Controls were good, graphics were Ok. It was an easy game, I have to admit, but maybe that is due to my ability at playing games. This game does not implement the 3D effect. Has lots of variety.

Ok, from a critical standpoint, how is this game worse than Paper Jam? I respect if you dislike it but seriously though this is like the most original mario game out there!

This game doesn't look that bad at all. I haven't played it but it looks like a fun game to be honest

This game is the worst game I have ever played.

5 Paper Mario: Sticker Star Paper Mario: Sticker Star Product Image

How did Mario Party: Island Tour and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon get ahead of this? Those have plenty of quality moments. This one? Eh...

I know it's so much worse than the other Paper Mario games, but it's not bad on its own merits. Sure, there is no hints on where to go next and the combat is pointless (and there are no new villains or bosses), but if you aren't comparing it to the BEST GAMES OF ALL TIME, then maybe you guys could appreciate how well they implemented the paper/sticker gimmick, the cool music, and the interesting levels.

I like the games visuals and humors, but the game has frustrating puzzles, no story, no unique characters, terrible battle system. I beg of you guys don't buy this junk.

Wow! This Game Gets Boring Really Fast. I'll Definitely Prefer Super Paper Mario Over This Game For Sure. HECK YEAH! That Game Was A Hundred Times Better Than This.

6 Rayman Orgins Rayman Orgins Product Image

This is good not bad

I'm not sure me and the list maker we have play to the same game. Personaly I think it's one of the best game of the system - AzertyQwerty

I WILL MURDER ALL OF THESE LIST MAKERS

Kinda boring is all 😕

7 Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal Product Image

If you do buy the game here's a heads up if you use knuckles on one of the levels keep pressing the jump button and you can fly

Okay, thanks for giving me a heads up. I will not tell my mum to buy it for my little brother

This game is bad it's gameplay I thought was suppose to be about speed but no you need the friggen explore through the level anywho the thing I don't like about this game is that you have to find all the crystals in the level you are on to move its boring and repetitive

This is the only acceptable bad 3DS game on this entire thing

8 Battle of Giants: Dinosaurs - Fight For Survival

Worst fighting game ever worse than shaq fu - dinosaur

9 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinty

Bad but not this bad. More like honorable mention. Still awful though.

Never heard of it - docreywashere

One of the best 3ds games ever

It wasn't that bad! Sure, it should've included the entire roster of Pokemon, but still, at least it's not Battleship 3D or SpongeBob SquigglePants!

10 Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games Product Image

That game did kind of suck because you can't really choose your character.

That’s the problem with the 3ds versions you can only play as the character you want to (expect Mario and Sonic ) in certain events.

The Contenders
11 Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games Product Image

Inferior version of Mario Party, and Mario Party itself sucks.

I keep forgetting that this was also released on the 3DS.

Never played but I just assumed it wasn't good

It looks Ok to be honest

12 Tenkai Knights: Brave Battle Tenkai Knights: Brave Battle Product Image

I have seen this game on the clearance bin at the store for a year and it's still there, Just proves No one wants to buy this crap even when it's cheap

This is The gayest video game I've seen in me life, and how is this below mario and luigi?

This is the most bad game in the world. If you like when hurt you play this game

This Game Is Really Boring And Crappy

13 Garfield Kart Garfield Kart Product Image

Best anime rpg

Garfield kart > team fortress 2 and fallout 4

This is one of the best games ever! It's a classic!

Best anime game on the PS4

14 Mario Tennis Open Mario Tennis Open Product Image

Only because my copy cannot be read by the 3ds and if it does, it crashes 5 minutes in. Now I have to buy/swap it for another game or a properly working copy of this game.

Lets hope for the best for MT Aces

15 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Product Image

Majora's mask was so much better and challenging than Ocarina of time. I'm not trying to be rude, but Ocarina of Time doesn't deserve all it's praise. All I here people say when a new Zelda game comes out is,"Oh,oh, Skyward Sword isn't as good as Ocarina of Time so it isn't worthy to be considered a Zelda game." It drives me nuts!

It was my favorite game of 2011 other than Skyward Sword. Did someone think it was for the best 3ds games?

I don't get why this game is 1# on the best games of all time. What is so fun about it? It's so boring!

What the heck? I can respect opinions... but this is a GREAT game, and tons others agree...

16 Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Stealth Force Edition Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Stealth Force Edition Product Image

Never Get This Game, Michael Bay's Game - VideoGamefan5

A game based on a Michael Bay movie. Surprised this is E10 and a nintendo console, I would surprised if this game didn't have explosions - B1ueNew

17 Yoshi's New Island Yoshi's New Island Product Image

Yoshi's Island wasn't on the NES, dumbass. It was the SNES.

The music is repetitive. I haven't played the game myself but I'm sure the gameplay is also repetitive - yoshiclay

The Yoshi's Island For The NES Was WAY Better!

Nintendo, y u get rid of the adorable cutesy cartoon graphics and epic final boss from the original?

18 The Denpa Men: They Came By Wave

TAKE THIS OFF THIS LIST IMMEDIATELY. THIS IS THE BEST RPG EVER, sure it may seem like a Pokemon rip-off, but trust me it isn't. (COME AT ME FINAL FANTASY 7 FANBOYS) *Puts up Flame Shield in prediction for an attack*

There are way worse jrpgs like conception 2 and sticker star - ikerevievs

19 Yo-Kai Watch Yo-Kai Watch Product Image

It was all right. There are much better RPGs for the 3ds though, like the utterly amazing Bravely Default. And while I get its geared more towards kids, so is Pokemon. And I honestly prefer Pokemon. I'd get it if your a fan of the RPG genre though. It has unique gameplay and a catchy soundtrack.But if you want to introduce your kids to RPG's, I'd recommend the upcoming Pokemon Sun and Moon or maybe one of the Final Fantasy games without all the damn's and stuff. Yo-Kai gets a 68/100 from me. Check out the anime though, it's really good.

I'm worried that I'm gonna be ranted at by a caps lock guy, but here goes nothing... I don't really like Yo-Kai watch. There are only 2 Yo-Kai that I found cute (Jibanyan and the other cat guy) and I hate how overly girly the female character's design is. It didn't really emotionally touch me like a Final Fantasy or Pokemon game, and the adverts make me wanna bang my face against a wall. I do like the battle system, however. BUT PLEASE DON'T GET MAD AT ME! I'M ONLY 12! =(

I doubt any of the people who called this a Pokemon Ripoff actually played the game. Don't listen to them. Sure, there's some similarities, but it's not ripping off Pokemon. (This is coming from a huge Pokemon Fan)

The look on my friend's face when I told him that the peeps who created YoKai were the guys behind Prof Layton was priceless. The game itself is fairly tedious and boring. Keep that money for Pokemon Sun/Moon.

20 Super Mario Maker Super Mario Maker Product Image

While the 3ds version isn't released yet, but it doesn't look to be as good as the WiiU version. The lack of the Mystery Mushroom and seemingly little to no online activity, Super Mario Maker 3DS is more like Super MEHrio Maker 3DS, amma right? Ok, ok, I suck at puns.

Don't waste your time, just get the Wii U version.

It's going to be good people.

The Wii U version is better

21 Pac-Man Party 3D
22 Tomodachi Life Tomodachi Life Product Image

Oh come ON! This game definitely doesn't deserve to be here! I understand that people say it's not fun because you can't control the characters and stuff, but this game really is a masterpiece. The amount of randomness makes it fun, and the mini games are fun. Some people might be annoyed it's not like Animal Crossing, but that would defeat the purpose of this game. It's SUPPOSED to be different! And the mii possibilities so are endless. Seriously. You can give them all types of fun outfits and rooms, and watch their reactions. That's not all, but you can also watch them fall in love, get married, and even have kids (they ask you if they should have a kid, and if you press yes a few days later you get a phone call, go to their house, and there is a bundle of joy awaiting of you! You can even choose its name, gender, and look if you want to) and eventually, watch them grow up and either send them off to other islands or have them become a resident of your island. The possibilities so ...more

Tomodachi Life is a good game, but it can get boring after a few months. Also, the Mii News stories are always the same and all-time favorite foods can be disappointing. - LiamCoasterFan

How could you guys say this! It may not be the type of game that makes a big impact on your life and is seen as a masterpiece, but it is fun and random and awesome. I do wish you could control the characters and have SOME say in their lives, but having it be just like Animal Crossing would defeat the purpose of it being a different game. The Miis are hilarious and it's really fun to make new people and watch them make friends and get married and even have children. Even just giving them stuff is fun, especially food because every time you are holding your breath to see if this food will be the ONE in over 200 food items that is their "super all-time favorite," which is obviously rare but happens more than you'd think. Overall, I could see why some wouldn't enjoy it, but it's really fun and definitely doesn't deserve to be called "worst" or "bad! "

23 Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land Regular Show: Mordecai and Rigby in 8-Bit Land Product Image

Major disappointment for Regular show Fans.

Honestly, Regular Show is my favorite T.V. show on Cartoon Network. But this game really is just dull. It's just a sample of the many cheesy games Mordecai and Rigby actually play, and most of it is really hard. Will I play it again? Sure, I'm keeping it, but I pray that it won't bore me to death.

24 Metroid Prime: Federation Force Metroid Prime: Federation Force Product Image

It's so bad that even Samus tries to kill herself because she is the final boss in the end.

My legit reaction to Fed Force trailer: Oh, so it's Tri Force Heroes but with Metroid? 10/10 Nintendo, 10/10.

The game isn't even out yet.

It's out... And it's horrible.

25 The Denpa Men 2: Beyond The Waves

This isn't a bad game! This is innovative and fun! Seriously! This is fun! The balancing in the other half is wonky but you have a work around. Grinding.

Wha how is this on here.

A bad game doesn't need a sequl - dinosaur
