I'd add PilotWings, SMT4, and Devil Survivor Overclocked to that list.

But yeah, it's clear the 3DS has a great library. Quite a turnaround compared to what was available within launch window. RPG fans - especially - are missing out if they don't have a 3DS.

Pilotwings is a good time killer, and it's a good game. But it falls short on the content. In my humble opinion, there's not a lot of things to do in that game.

So nothing but platform and low budget rpgs

Personally, even though I have a 3DS, I wish handheld games weren't so darn expensive. I mean a great deal of them don't have price drops until 2 years after their launch. Kind of bogus in my opinion.

dedicatedtogamers1092d ago

Are you referring to Nintendo handheld games? I feel ya. The 1st party Nintendo games stay high in price for the longest time.

But otherwise, I think handheld games are pretty cheap, comparatively speaking. I mean, we're talking about $30-40 to buy a game Day One as opposed to $60 for a console game.

@dedicated
I'm sort of talking about Nintendo handheld games, but in general as well. I've noticed the price of handhelds seldom go down compared to consoles. I mean if you look at it like this, Bioshock Infinite is already down to 40 dollars and it's only been a few months ( no offense towards the game for whoever is reading). While, you have handheld games like Devil Survivor that's around 25 dollars at the cheapest even on Ebay, and that game is around a year old. It's just odd how console games come out at 60, but price reductions happen so quickly, while handheld games, even PSP games don't really have a price reduction. Games like Dissdia still cost a good 15 bucks, even though being very old.

dedicatedtogamers1092d ago

I hear ya. Yes, there ARE certain handheld games that hold their value for a long while. I think it's because handhelds have a lot of "rare" games that people want. Look at how FE Awakening was sold out (or at least hard to find) for a month straight. A lot of ATLUS games are expensive and only go up in price as time goes on because their games tend to become rare cult hits.

But there are cheap handheld games, too. Just to name a few, I got Theatrhythm, Pilot Wings, AssCreed Liberation, and LBP Vita for less than $10 over the last year. You just have to look for the deals, I guess.

I can't praise it enough but seriously if you didn't buy fire emblem awakening yet you're missing one of the greatest SRPGs of all time.

With that being said, where the hell is advance wars Nintendo????

dedicatedtogamers1092d ago

Mmmm Advance Wars.

I hope they go back to the quasi-goofy Orange Star versus Blue Moon style of older games. I dunno. I didn't - personally - dig the darker tone of DoR but that's just me.

Spot on about FE Awakening. I've been playing SRPGs since...dang, since the NES I'd say, and Awakening is easily in my Top 3 SRPGs ever.

Murad1092d ago

I personally find myself disliking Awakening as compared to the other Fire Emblem's in the franchise. The reason why it felt more so like a grind fest than it did a true Fire Emblem strategy combined with a few RPG elements. Furthermore, I didn't feel like they even bothered to use the generations to the fullest. I ended up having over 40 characters, just like I did in a Suikoden game, but more so than not, each one of them could take down an army of 20 enemies each round, so it kind of become like, there's no point in liking one character when another is just as strong.
Furthermore, Advance Wars I think is kind of dead. 40 Days I believe the game was called on the DS didn't sell properly or something, or it didn't gain enough popularity and well, I haven't heard even the slightest bit of news. Hopefully I'm wrong about this, but this is what Nintendo does quite a bit. The only reason they brought Fire Emblem back is the major success of Path of Radiance and the story with Lyn and Eliwood.

I want Advance Wars with online battles and the ability to share custom-made maps like how u can share levels in LBP. That would be my perfect A.W. sequel.

levian1092d ago

I love Kingdom Hearts, but I tried to played Dream Drop, and I just couldn't do it. I think they're adding new types of monsters just because they think they can. They add pokemon like pets, or nintendogs or something.

I wanted to, but I really couldn't do it.

Glad to see zelda make the list. I swear, I could play that game forever, especially the mini-games like fishing.

levian1092d ago

That was the first game I nabbed for my 3DS. I was excited not only because its a great game, but I was told you could play Master Quest after beating it. I never got around to playing it years ago.

I got super excited, I hooked the Hylian Loach my first throw. It got away, sadly.

_FantasmA_1092d ago

Virtues Last Reward is on Vita also and I don't know if Revelations should be on there since its on consoles now.

linkenski1092d ago

It's still so much better when it's handheld imo.

Misaka_x_Touma1091d ago (Edited 1091d ago )

Much better on 3DS because of second screen. Which is the core gameplay selling point

Y_51501092d ago

I do not own any of the top 5 that was mentioned. I play different games I guess...
