If you had to choose only three 3DS games to play for the rest of your life, and these would be the only video games you'll ever play again, which would you choose?

I think I'd choose
- LoZ: Majora's Mask
- Pokemon Alpha Sapphire
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf

The last was a tie between New Leaf and Mario Kart 7, but the luck aspect and rubber band AI in Mario Kart gets frustrating after a point. If we count Majora's Mask as an N64 game, though, Mario Kart would definitely be in there.

Feel free to answer for other systems as well (like what three N64 or Xbox 360 games you'd pick; or even what three games of all time) but I'm mostly interested in what 3DS games people would pick.

For 3DS only:

Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

and I don't think I can round it out to a third until the system's time ends since I'm still looking forward to a lot. The above two just have so much play time already that I know they'd be a shoe-in.

I'd not use two slots of my only three games on the 3DS. One max.

For 3DS only:

- Animal Crossing New Leaf
- Pokemon X
- Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D


For Wii U only:

- Splatoon
- Animal Crossing Wii U (assuming they will make a proper AC game for the system, then it is an automatic play for life for me)
- Mario Kart 8


For PS3/PS4 only:

Really, I would be happy with playing The Last of Us for the rest of my life.


For Xbox (One) only:

- Halo: The Master Chief Collection
- Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
- Life is Strange


But my 3 games of all time would be...

1. Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag - > I have played the story at least 5 complete times by now and I'm on my 6th playthrough to 100% everything. There's just something about it that makes it a fantastic game I can return to.

2. Halo: The Master Chief Collection - > Newly invested fan into the series, but a fan nonetheless. Halo seems like a series that won't ever get old re-playing.

3. Life is Strange - > I was actually about to put down The Last of Us, but decided this instead. This game has pulled me in in surprising ways and it has truly emotional storytelling that I probably won't ever forget about this game.

In 3rd Place!   FFXIV A Realm Reborn!

I have to say even though I haven't been subscribed for at least half a year of so by now when I was active this MMO was definately not one to be laughed at after it's previous failure of a launch and it set itself as a serious contender among that target audience. The combat was clean and crisp as well as an engaging and well paced story to really feel involved with. The best however came from some of the music in the game and if you get the chance I'd ask of you to listen to Titan and Ravana's Themes. (They're my favourite) Overall this game was definately quite the amazement and I wish I could subscribe again but my money is being saved elsewhere. Plus the customization in this game is ridiculous...


In 2nd Place!   Life Is Strange!

This game was simply a choice made out of impulse. I've always loved these sort of narrative games where you can make choices along the way though Life Is Strange is much more of a bombshell than I had first anticipated it to be. What I want to highlight the most is the way that raw, emotional matters that are presented in the game are highlighted in a sensitive but truthful way. In some cases, such as when Kate tries to jump after the viral video is posted were expressed with so much care that I found myself feeling for the characters and wanted to help and make a difference no matter what. Dontnod have really found a way to ramp up the the character development to make each person individual and unique whether they are main or supporting cast. I also love the soothing indie music with the washed out art style as it really allowed me to sit back and take a moment to appreciate what was being presented at me. Factors such as Max's power really didn't feel gimmicky as with all the substance around it wan't my only focus while going through the areas. Overall Life Is Strange is a beautiful game which is real and raw. I hope that Polarized can really capture and tie the game off with the same power that the other episodes have.

So the winner is!   FFX Remastered!

Some people would probably disagree with me on this decision and that is perfectly fine as I can see where for some people there may be some flaws for them (We're looking at you Tidus HA! HA! HA!) Though for me I feel that this game has been the only game where I have been transported into this new world as if everything is just there. The environments are lush and varied and despite being linear with tthe way the story was rolled out steadily it didn't feel like a drag. In fact there was no grinding or sudden difficulty spikes which halted the experience (Uh huh Tales of Xillia 2 I see you there shaking your had ) The combat was traditional yet varied at the same time with the Sphere Grid allowing crossed paths and the variety of enemies and bosses were enough to be interesting and unique. The main squad of characters as well had some real gems in the mix with my faves being Wakka, Rikku but most importantly Yuna. I think Yuna is my favourite game character yet along with Clemmy just because of her changing throughout the game in a realistic and well paced way. Her decisions are real. Her dialogue is real. Yuna makes mistakes yet she make right decisions as well. To me she was the real protagonist of the game over Tidus. The story can simply be described as walking through a garden maze. It may be convoluted or weird at times but when you make it through everything ties together and there is a powerful and to me mentally emotional ending which ties the journey with which you have shared with these characters. Finally, the music is gorgeous with songs such as Suteki Da Ne and To Zanarkand really being the songs that captured me in the moment. Overall I feel this game was a work of playable art and
each time I play it I get lost in the experience.

(That was alot of writing there... )

But why?
It's got a great story line, easter eggs, art, and it is basically a retelling of my life but with time travel.

"It's got a great story line, easter eggs, art, and it is basically a retelling of my life but with time travel."
I agree, its storyline is as good as The Last of Us is, if I'm being completely honest. The dialogue is meant to be the way it is, it is representing teenagers after all. (I do know that a lot of teens don't talk that way, but thankfully the developers didn't put in the awful language most teens speak today haha) Just like The Last of Us, Life is Strange has changed my life. It's so deep too and it is a true work of art, unlike other video games.

Anyways, I would probably choose that as my top game, only Halo is close.

...Right...

"The dialogue is meant to be the way it is, it is representing teenagers after all."
I don't think the devs had any idea what they were writing. The dialogue is one of the cringiest things I've ever experienced.

"It's so deep too and it is a true work of art "
I don't even know what to say to this lol
