    Found myself getting one with Mario Kart 7. Any good game suggestions? Can't seem to find a 2D Pac Man game for it like Pac Man Championship

    So many great games. Start with these:

    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
    Fire Emblem: Awakening
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
    Shovel Knight
    Super Mario 3D Land
    The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D
    Fire Emblem Fates: Special Edition
    Pokemon X/Y
    Pokemon Sun/Moon
    Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
    SteamWorld Heist
    Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon
    Xenoblade Chronicles 3D
    Monster Hunter Generations
    Metroid: Samus Returns
    Super Smash Bros.
    Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D

    I also really enjoy playing all the old Zelda games on the Virtual Console (Minish Cap, both Oracle games, Link's Awakening, A Link to the Past).

    The 2DS is backwards compatible with older DS games. Extended that library even further as many games are dirt cheap now on online.

    Thanks for the list of games. I'll certainly check them out. I need to get the Zelda games as I'm a big RPG fan and have never played them as I'm quite new to Nintendo.
