Alright, as the name says, I'm doing to do this tournament style. 10 games per day for 6 days. Day 7, the 10 most voted games will go head to head. This thread is just so I can generate a poll without disrupting the answers of the previous rounds. So please send any discussion over here

The games were compiled by a combination of the previously mentioned thread, and I also added in games that either sold well or were critically acclaimed. I did not choose which games go up against each other, I just entered them into a random list generator. So I take ownership of the games selected but not the order. Alternatively, if I have made any errors with the selection of games, please let me know and I will look into it. I also chose to list all of the games here just in case there were errors, so don't be shy to call them out or let me know if something shouldn't be in this list.

WarioWare Gold for this one. I love the Layton games, but the 3DS ones are not the best imo.



This was a tough one cause it had a lot of my favorite 3DS games in the list.


FE Shadows of Valentia was amazing.

SMT Devil Survivor 1 was great

Bravely Default and its sequel were great too

But because of SMT IV/Apocalypse - that has it all beat, such an amazing game overall, story, music and gameplay - so SMT IV/Apocalypse gets my vote.





Virtue's Last Reward and that's my overall number 1 too. Glad it got some votes.
A little iffy to see a downgraded port (XC) winning the poll tbh, even if it is impressive they got it running at all.

Yeah, I really love Xenoblade Chronicles and it is one of my most beloved games of all time. But I really think the 3DS is really limiting the experience and is not a good platform for the game. I enjoyed both the Wii-version and the Switch-version. I didn't vote for XC3D, because I think it is inferior and does not do the game justice.

This like yesterday is a bit of a difficult year. I also only played the Star Fox 64 remake and Professor Layton. I like Layton, but I guess this one didn't grip me enough to finish it. Star Fox on the other hand is an awesome game, but it's 'just' a remake. I guess, for the lack of anything else I can genuinely vote for, Star Fox 64 still wins.

Mask of Miracle is the best of the 3D games imo. I'd take it over Unwound future.

I dont like the maze stuff at the end of MoM and AF. Very boring imo.



Kinda of a meh day. Vote Warioware cause reasons.



By following these posts, I have come to the realization that there really just weren't very many 3DS games that I cared about. I'm yet to see a single one that was special to me.
