So it turns out that all my talk actually had an effect on people. They’ve been out there buying 2 and 3 DSs and now they’re asking me what games they should get for it. That’s why it’s time for me to give you a run down of my top ten favourite 3DS games.
The only thing you really need to know about vanilla ice cream is that it’s good enough to eat. Beyond that there’s nothing much to say unless you can compare it to other vanilla ice creams. Unfortunately I can’t do that with Pilotwings Resort. I will say without a doubt that it is the best island resort based flying mini game game I’ve ever played.
Syberia is the first graphical adventure I’ve played since KGB on the Amiga, and it feels good to get back to it.
The whole shrine experience is really really bad. It’s easy to get lost, and there’s usually no logic to the layout of the caves. I would go so far as to say that the shrine exploring has ruined this game for me. Sadly it’s not the only problem.
There are approximately eight million known Zelda games, and Link Between Worlds is the only one that was created entirely for the 3DS. I say that, but it’s based on the third Zelda game, Link to the Past. It uses the same map, and has the same top-down style gameplay, but it uses a fancy new 3D graphics. The two games play very similarly to each other. I’ve been thinking about this, and I’ve decided to recommend that you play Link to the Past first. It’s an old game that holds up perfectly, and currently has a meta critic score of 95.
So Fire Emblem. Hmmm. Fire Emblem is something that I didn’t know existed until I got a 3DS. Apparently Fire Emblem has been a thing for ages, in Japan, but has been a huge hit since it arrived on Nintendo machines in Europe and the USA.
