Overall Top 3DS Games
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D is an obvious 3DS favorite, as it’s been around long enough to establish a very dedicated following. Fans of treasure-seeking, sword-swinging action will approve of this latest revision, and if you’ve never played a Zelda game before (gasp!) now is a good time to start. The game boasts all of your favorite Link and Zelda action, wrapped in a shiny, new 3D package. Mario Kart 7 is a close second; the Mario franchise is just as strong on the latest Nintendo handheld unit as it is on the Wii. Note: although these titles are a little older than others on the list, they’re still worth looking into if you haven’t already checked them out.

Top 3DS Puzzle Games
Mahjong is every bit as addictive on the Nintendo 3DS as it is everywhere else. You’ll be able to spend hours on end reorganizing the colorful tiles, so make sure you have some free time before you check out this title! Tetris, of course, is available on the handheld as well. If you’re looking for a more complex and artistic puzzle, check out Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask or Rhythm Thief & The Emperor’s Treasure.

Top 3DS RPG Games
Is role-playing more your style? Kingdom Hearts 3D Dream Drop Distance, despite the somewhat odd title (it’s a Japanese transplant), is well worth looking into. Just make sure you’re ready to take on the challenge of investing in two main character’s lives, delve into places called the “Sleeping World,” partner with Spirits, and interact with a whole host of Disney characters. Another fun option (especially if you like dungeon crawlers) is Heroes of Ruin.
