The best 3DS games of all time

The best Nintendo 3DS games, from Animal Crossing: New Leaf to Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

The best 3DS games highlight just how phenomenal this handheld console really was...

This remake of a then-13-year-old game was one of the only things to play on the 3DS for the first six months of the platform's life. Good thing it's one of the best games ever made.

7. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

The kind of game that, 200 hours in, you still can't stop playing, because there's always new armor, new monster variants, and new challenges to grab.

6. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate

A generous sequel that added multiple mansions to explore and bountiful ghosts to bust. And in case you were wondering, bustin' definitely feels good.

5. Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon

No game encapsulates the feeling of childhood as well as Animal Crossing: New Leaf. You're not digging up rocks, you're finding fossils! 

4. Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Pokemon Sun & Moon isn't a new beginning for the legendary series, but it is a very refreshing vacation. It was the first in the franchise to take advantage of grid-free movement.

3. Pokemon Sun & Moon

While the strategy RPG maintains the same level of complexity as past games in the series, the brilliant Awakening is accessible enough for anyone to jump into.

2. Fire Emblem: Awakening

A Zelda that's the perfect mix of old and new, blending traditional themes and fresh mechanics to create an incredible handheld adventure. It's our favorite game on the 3DS.

1. The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
