While I agree that FE Awakening is the best RPG on the 3DS, calling its story captivating and dissing the older ones is just pure bullshit.

“Paper Mario Sticker Star was one of the best games of 2012.” He has obviously never even touched a 3ds with that cartridge plugged in lmfao within a single hour of playing I was totally done with it! Was thanking myself for saving the receipt and also having an EB edge gold card (With a gold card you get 48 hours to do a full In store exchange even if you bought the game brand new and opened it!)
LOL Icon (7 months ago)
I don't hate Sticker Star, I at least really like the concept of it, but I have heard nothing but hate towards it. How did it get good scores among all the backlash?

Will comment on games I have played: #18 You need a strategy guide otherwise you leave Mario and Luigi in limbo. Played much worse games (Back to the Future, Jekkyl and Hyde, Ninja Gaiden III NES and Pushmo, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate qualify!) #1 I think this game will forever be in Top 10 best 3Ds Games ever (A Link Between Worlds, Mario Kart 7 and Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon are the others!)
Alex MaGanda (10 months ago)
I played Bravely default 5 minutes and never touched the game again who the fuk had the idea to make a game where you need to pay to progress faster or you have to leave your ds on just to get bp or whatever that was. A disgrace for rpgs i do love fire emblem though it deserves number 1 spot
cabbage scented candle (10 months ago)
Alex MaGanda No it doesn't. I enjoyed Bravely Second (haven't played Default) but I bought Awakening and regret it. It's one of the most boring games I've ever experienced, although the cutscenes are awesome.

Glitchex64 (11 months ago)
How did Pokemon Sun get a different score than Pokemon Moon? They're virtually the same game...
Noah Golden (8 months ago)
Glitchex64 because more people probably bought sun version which means slightly more people voted for it. Thus receiving a different score.
whatoplay (11 months ago)
They received different reviews from critics and gamers, which is why we gave them different PlayScores. Hope that explains it!
cabbage scented candle (11 months ago)
Xenoblade is easily the best imo. I personally can't get into Fire Emblem
Shattered Zeraora (10 months ago)
brennan weaver. Xenoblade is my all time favorite game series, no the entire Xeno series as a whole. But Xenoblade X is just jawdroppingly amazing.

MrJeremyMagic (1 year ago)
I'm very surprised to see awakening at first on the list. I was just thinking how much fun I had with it than the rest of the games in the series and that it had a bigger impact on me than with shadows of valentia after I beat it. I was somewhat disappointed with shadows of valentia, I felt it was a bit lacking. very challenging but I just didn't really like the characters as much as I did with awakening and fates. Awakening is my favorite among the series due to its more captivating story and second would be fates with its seriousness and despair, third would be the blazing sword because it was how I was introduced into the series back in 2005, then sacred stones because it had a very likeable cast of characters, then last echoes simply because I hated the ending. If I was still 13 and full of hormones that ending would have been emaculate, but it was so cheesy I nearly killed over after watching falchion magically solve everything... even death. nonethless the story from start to near the end was beautiful, the ending left a bad taste in my mouth, I much preferred having an avatar than a cheesy MC bent on playing the hero.. I love having an avatar because it's always he/she goes missing, loses everything or dies. maybe I just prefer tragic endings.

One RPG title that didn't make this list is Conception 2, which has an appeal is similar to that of schlock/B-movies. While it won't be winning any awards, its unique style and sense of humor makes it immensely entertaining and strangely endearing.
Jinsei Cast (1 year ago)
However the dungeon designs is incredibly bland. It's the one thing preventing me from moving forward in this game since you'll be spending a lot of your time in there.

Totally, the Hakuoki for 3DS is a full visual novel game with no action at all. Very misleading video. Plus, since when is Story of Season an RPG? It's a farming simulation game ffs. There is so much wrong in this video xDD

You're fucking dumb. Generations is apart of the series. Just some shitty fanboy who probably also will call MH World a spin off. It's by Capcom. Kindly ignore this THOT. I'm apart of the MH Community. The game's are fine. Play what you like. Idiots be damned.

Please, please, PLEASE do not play Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. Do not encourage such lazy game design. I want to see one of my favorite series grow, not continue being lazy cause the crazy fans just accept any and everything. This is coming from a fan that's been around from the start. I'm begging you. PLEASE! If you want to experience this game then just buy yourself a pack of balloons and look up a synopsis of the plot spiralling even further into the garbage zone where Sora doesn't even grow as a character anymore. DON'T DO THIS TO YOURSELF
Mugiwara no Link (1 year ago)
+Arisa Ayamo I've played CoM and BBS actually also I just saw all the cut scenes of Coded, 358 and 3D on YouTube
Arisa (1 year ago)
also, idk if you're still here, but there was a guy that said 'it's a spin off what do you expect'. IDK if they deleted their comment or what, but there is literally no spin off in KH. Number in title =/= only important ones. If you don't know the story of 358 then you have no idea who xion is when she appears in Coded, BBS, and 3D. If you don't know the story of CoM then you literally are lost for most of KH2, some parts of BBS, a good chunk of 358, and a bit of Coded. Without BBS you're lost on what happens in parts of Coded and 3D. No 3D, 0.2, or ANY of the other games means no idea what the fuck is going on in KH3. You don't have to play them all, sure, but at least look up their stories. Gameplay wise, just cause something is a spin off, doesn't mean you should allow for lazy game design. I hate the fact I'm so invested in this shitty series. SOMEONE SAVE ME
Arisa (1 year ago)
The gameplay is the absolute worst in the series. No staggering that makes sense, no such thing as learning enemy patterns, no need to put anything in your deck other than balloon, or just spam flowmotion. The story is absolutely horrible with things being shoe horned in in a attempt to clean up things that were shoe horned into the previous games and, worst of all, they kill Sora's character for good. Instead of questioning anything or growing as a person he just goes on and spouts shit about friendship. I know what you're thinking 'But Arisa! He has always loved friendship!' This is true! However, when a character goes to world after world after world where they all say 'BELIEVE IN YOUR FRIENDS' despite the protagonist already believing them then there is something wrong. Speaking of the worlds, what's the point of Disney worlds anymore? In KH1, and sorta 2, the worlds weren't just there for the obligatory cameo. Stuff actually happened in them that effected the story, characters, or both at the same time. All in all, I can't wait to see how bad KH3 is.

Lykotic I'm still waiting in vain for the sequel, it's been pushed back numerous times. I hope among the constantly changing details of its release is the developers reconsideration to realease it on 3Ds. Last I heard they wanted to be only on mobile devices.
