    Nintendo DS/3DS Games

    I just picked up a Nintendo 3DS, as I am going to be doing some traveling for work in the near future.

    I bought Zelda: A Link Between Worlds. Really enjoy it.

    I have been a Nintendo fan since the late 80s when I was 5-6 years old.

    I would like to pick up a few more DS or 3DS games. Any recommendations?

    To get an idea of what I like, the following are my top 5 games for each Nintendo system I grew up with:

    NES:
    Zelda
    Contra
    Super Mario 3
    Mega Man 2
    Bionic Commando

    SNES(I am a huge SNES fan, I could really name off probably 25 games, so the following was really hard for me - I still play this system all the time):
    Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Mega Man X
    Secret of Mana
    Super Mario Kart
    Super Metroid
    (I just started playing Chrono Trigger for the first time and I may bounce one of these games off top 5)

    N64:
    Star Wars: Rogue Squadron
    Mario 64
    Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    Super Smash Bros
    Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire (I know this one doesn’t hold up at all, but the nostalgia)

    Gameboy (and Gameboy advance combined):
    Tetris
    Pokémon Red
    Advance Wars
    Metroid II
    Super Mario Land

    I def want to get at least one more game before I fly to Minnesota on March 2nd, so thanks for your recs in advance!
    What would you say.....ya do here?

    Dragon Quest VIII <3DS> (one of the best RPG's ever made IMHO)
    Dragon Quest IX <DS> (also really really good RPG)
    999 <DS> (story-based puzzle game; multiple endings based on choices during play)
    Virtue's Last Reward <3DS> (999 'sequel', the third is 'Zero Time Dilemma'- which I haven't played)
    Advance Wars Dual Strike <DS> (if you liked Advance Wars, you'll LOVE this)

    Of those, DQ VIII is the most engaging, DQ IX the most involved. AW: Dual Strike is the most fun if you only have the ability to play intermittently, while 999 can be played through in the least amount of time- but you can't get to every ending just playing through once.

    The Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney <DS> series is also a good change of pace and there are a ton of Mario games made for both the DS and 3DS systems. Xenoblade Chronicles <3DS> was also promising, but I wandered off into other console games before finishing much of it. Also, Zelda: Ocarina of time has a ported 3DS version.

    There was an entire cult around NHL '94 on SNES. It was running at almost every hipster party I went to in the '90s (and I went to a lot).

    There was a rule in NYC that no one could play the Rangers just to avoid real life fights.
