[Calling Robo!]

I just got a 3DS (Zelda), again. I have been out of the portable game space for some time and out of games in general for a while. Any good suggestions? What 3DS games are YOU playing? (Thankfully, it's definitely not Minecraft!)

Also curious to read some suggestions. I mainly play virtual console games.

Not a game, but Nintendo has the beautiful Zelda XL available in their refurb store. It doesn't come with the game but it's a really nice piece of hardware.

Almost all of Nintendo's games for it are fantastic, but a few stand above the rest: Super Mario 3D Land is excellent, and so is Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. And Mario Kart 7 is sort of a no-brainer, too. It's Mario Kart!

If you like role-playing games, I second the suggestion for Bravely Default, and I'd also recommend Fire Emblem: Awakening. There are tons of RPGs on the 3DS, from Pokémon to Persona, so whether you want to be the very best (like no one ever was) or be the most troubled Japanese high school student ever, you'll be able to find something your speed.

If you'd like a change of pace from all that heavy world-saving, both Harvest Moon: A New Beginning and Animal Crossing: New Leaf are excellent "life sims," although AC's über-cute style is off-putting to some adults.

There's a wide selection of downloadable titles from the eShop, too—both some overlooked gems from Nintendo, like the puzzle-y Pushmo, as well as some great indie titles, like the retro Shovel Knight.

Finally, here are all the new releases I'm looking forward to this fall, which may or may not interest you at all:

Thanks, Robo!

I find that I am more and more an RPG player. Particularly JRPGs. At least, I enjoy them while I'm playing them. For the brief time I had a Vita, I played Persona 4 for hours.

I also really like strategy RPGs like Fire Emblem (I've already got that but I need to restart my game since it's been so long). One of my favorite games ever is Jeanne d'Arc. As is my wont, I didn't finish it but I enjoyed it for the time I played it.

I've come to learn that I prefer games that aren't challenging my ability to *play* games - things like precision, twitch controls, etc - but rather my ability to plan and learn if that makes any sense. I'm not really interested in learning how to play a game but how to think about playing the game.

Of course, that doesn't mean I won't enjoy some MK or SSB. Games are fun. I wish I would have picked up the habit when I was younger and had more time.
