I've never owned a DS, and I'll be picking up pic related sometime this month.
Instead of just asking for recommendations, simply post your five favorite games from the DS/3DS library.
But unless you want to play the new ones or want to transfer old pokemon into new ones, just emulate, if you care enough, get platinum, Heart Gold, and Black 2
If you can't find 4 for sale (I didn't), you can try 3U but they really upped the content in 4U
Just curios, what was the last nintendo handheld you owned, if any?
thanks, I heard it had like 2 extra shoulder buttons or something so I wasn't sure if it was a "new platform" or not.
also they still didn't include the second joystick fuck you nintendo you fuckers
i got a gateway now so i got a bunch of shit i can start going through without post-purchase rationalization. monster hunter 4 is the only game i've actually invested a decent amount of time on my 3ds with.
the c-stick is just another joystick anon.
wait, my bad, I thought that dumb looking nub wasn't a stick. It doesn't look that comfortable/accurate but I'll try one out and make an opinion. Sorry again friend.
Rune Factory 4
Fire Emblem Awakening
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
Animal Crossing New Leaf
Zelda A Link Between Worlds
Others to mention:
Etrian Odyssey IV
Kirby Triple Deluxe
Pokemon X/Y and ORAS
Majora's Mask 3DS
Tales of the Abyss 3DS
These are all I have other than a few eShop games.
And Mario Golf, which I don't recommend since it gets boring real fast.
