      Yep, same here. I literally bought this thing just to play Alpha Sapphire. However it also makes for a great portable emulator, if you don't mind paying for the games, it's much better then a phone.

      Same. Played the fuck out of Moon. Got every possible thing I could think of, from pokémon to berries. Haven't started on Ultra Moon yet though, is it different in any way or just an extension of...

    Bumping because I found this listing for $99, and was considering picking one up, if only to mess around with the homebrew scene.

      It's worth noting that the homebrew scene for the Nintendo Switch has become on par with the 3DS's scene in the past two years.

    As mentioned, I only bought mine to play Pokemon, but one criminally underrated game for the system is Kid Icarus Uprising. It's a fantastic game with some very witty in-game commentary, and especially now that it can be found reasonably cheaply on the used game market, it's definitely worth picking up if you've got a 3DS. Or you can watch a playthrough of it on Youtube if you want.

    Kirby Robobot and Triple Deluxe were definitely my favorites - but I played almost every Kirby game I could get on the console. I also rally enjoyed Dark Moon, so I may pull my DS out again to play the GameCube remake!
    Any other Kirby fans??

      I have loved Kirby ever since owning Dreamland on the old, phat Gameboy. While I enjoyed the 3DS titles and Kirby Star Allies for the Switch, I have never enjoyed the series as much as Kirby 64. With Star Allies, they are slowly coming back to combined abilities. Here's to hoping they resurrect the old Kirby 64 system.

    For me, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is my favorite 3DS game, hands-down. If you are a Nintendo fan and enjoyed A Link to the Past (or any of the scroller LotZ games), you have got to play this one.

    Close seconds are Pokemon Sun/Moon and Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon, Donkey Kong Country Returns, and Fire Emblem: Awakening.

      Came here to mention this. I don't know if I would say it's my favorite (huge fan of Pokémon OR/AS), but it's such a good game. I hadn't played any Zelda games in a long time and was looking for one to get my hands on. BotW never really caught my interest, so I was leaning towards playing one of the Ocarina of Time games for nostalgia's sake when I came across this one. Played it all the way through, which means a lot coming from me heh

    Shin Megami Tensei 4 was really memorable; I think it's the last 3DS game I played through, a few years back. It's very challenging at points, and offers plenty of content for people who want to grind up a lot. Of course the monster collection part can get addicting.

    The problem was that getting rare monsters could be excruciating since there is so much randomness when evolving monsters or catching them in battle. Also there are some optional story points that get unlocked when you own a specific rare monster, and it could be confusing which monster you needed.

    Another problem was I think there's a point-of-no-return where you can get a bad ending, and you have to play through the whole game again (albeit there's a New Game+ to ease that IIRC). Needless to say I got the bad ending, and just watched the good ending on YouTube.

    A very unique, high-quality and addicting game marred by a few frustrating flaws.

      This is an omega necropost, but since in case anyone is curious for some more details for SMT4

      Another problem was I think there's a point-of-no-return where you can get a bad ending, and you have to play through the whole game again (albeit there's a New Game+ to ease that IIRC). Needless to say I got the bad ending, and just watched the good ending on YouTube.

      There's actually 3 endings, and the "good" (technically, "neutral") ending is like almost physically impossible to get normally. All dialogue options give you points in either chaos or order, and to get neutral you have to pick and choose them so that you end up like +- 100 from 0. The other two endings are the usual SMT-fare, i.e peaceful dictatorship or chaotic freedom, which are varying degrees of ass.

      If you're aiming for neutral, you 100% need to use a guide.

      The problem was that getting rare monsters could be excruciating since there is so much randomness

      In SMT games (+Persona) this isn't actually a problem so long as you're willing to do some... uh excel work. You can lookup fusion calculators on the internet and from there you can get to just about everywhere. You don't have to actually negotiate to get any particular demons.

      Also the biggest issue with the game 100% is the godawful map once you get to a certain part in the game. It's awful. I'd recommend googling a guide.

    Picross 3DS. It was a 3D https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonogram puzzle game. There have been some good 2D picross versions on the Switch, but no 3D versions. I suspect it would be much more difficult to implement without the 3DS's stylus.
