The Eggplante Best of: 3DS Games

We’ve done Xbox 360 games. We’ve done PlayStation 3 games. We also added Wii games to the mix. So this time around, we figured it might be nice to go portable.

As always, John, Erika, and Brent contributed to this list, and the results are wonderful.

10 ) Animal Crossing: New Leaf – There’s always something new to discover in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, letting you indefinitely live the sweet life, and constantly forget where the time went!

9 ) Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance – Two compelling lead characters and several enchanting all-new worlds make Kingdom Hearts 3D the action-RPG to beat for the 3DS library!

8 ) Kid Icarus: Uprising – Boasting the hugest suite of unlockables and rewards of any 3DS game, Kid Icarus: Uprising is an action-packed extravaganza that will keep you coming back indefinitely!

7 ) Mario Kart 7 – The game that only shows up once per generation on Nintendo’s platforms, Mario Kart 7 brought new series mechanics, such as gliders and underwater karting, extending the franchise and setting up the design for Mario Kart 8, due on Wii U early next year.

6 ) Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon – More mansions, more ghosts and co-op multiplayer make Luigi’s second scarefest even more charming and enjoyable than his first!

5 ) Starfox 64 3D – The use of 3D in Starfox 64 3D made this game worth replaying again, especially since other entires in the series didn’t quite measure up to the Nintendo 64 original!

4 ) Pokémon X & Y – The largest and most engrossing Pokemon games yet, Pokemon X and Pokemon Y bring the series to 3D in style!

3 ) Super Mario 3D Land – Presenting some of the best Mario level design yet, Super Mario 3D Land is the perfect entertainment companion for your daily duties!

2 ) The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds – A radical change in progression and the revisiting of one of the most beloved Legend of Zelda games in history makes A Link Between Worldsarguably one of the best sequels of all time, on any platform!

1 ) The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D – A venerable classic on the Nintendo 64, Ocarina of Time 3D carries its success to the handheld platform in one of the best Zelda adventures of all time.
