SSFIV3D - I've never been into this style of fighting games, but it was the best thing at launch. I would probably play it and like it more if I could control and remember a moveset.
Rayman 3D - First time playing Rayman 2. I loved it, and I'll be sure to pick up the Dreamcast version (definitive) whenever I get a DC down the road.
Pilotwings Resort - It was really nice when I started playing it, but it got too hard too fast. I still play it from time to time just to relax and fly around, but not much else.
Ridge Racer - Probably the best title I picked up at launch - a lot of fun, and it kept me occupied a good while. Mario Kart is easily superior, though.
Ocarina of Time 3D - I played up to the Fire Temple on the VC before I lost interest, and when I found out about this, I figured I would wait. WOW. A truly incredible title, with excellent 3D, nice and clean graphics faithful to the original, and overall just a fantastic package, especially if you've never played OoT before.
Star Fox 64 3D - Never played this one before at all, and I fell in love with it instantly. Infinitely replayable, fantastic graphics, cool music, and wonderful 3D. Really great, but probably not worth $40 if you played it before.
Bit.Trip. Saga - Bought it cheap at GS, and having only played Runner, this was a great deal. All of the bit.trip. games are fantastic, but even after playing them all, Runner is still my favorite. Hoping Runner 2 comes to Wii U/3DS, it wouldn't feel right playing that on my PS3.
Tales of the Abyss - I usually enjoy JRPG's, but I don't exactly know what I didn't like about it. Battle System was boring, a character cast filled with assholes, a story that made no sense, blegh. A bad start to the Tales series for me. I stopped around 6 hours in, so maybe I'm missing something... I'll get back to it eventually, and who knows? Maybe I'll enjoy it. I just hope it doesn't drag on... that's the worst part of JRPGs that are anything less and good and engaging for me.
Super Mario 3D Land - A FANTASTIC platformer, from start to finish. If you remotely enjoy Mario/platformers, GET THIS GAME. Absolutely excellent.
Mario Kart 7 - What can I say? It's Mario Kart. However, I have some complaints... the character roster is messed up... irrelevant and only-used once characters like freaking HONEY QUEEN got in over staples like Waluigi? (
) The difficulty spike from 100cc to 150cc is huge. I got 3 stars in every 100cc race, and then the difficulty is suddenly ramped up, AI cheating, etc. That REALLY needs work, Nintendo. Difficulty curves, how do they work? I will say that the core gameplay is still fantastic, as is online (shocker! lol). Overall, a good package. Nintendo just needs to work on AI and items. F**k you blue shells :p
Kid Icarus Uprising - So far, my GOTY2012. Everything about it is done brilliantly. The characters, the dialogue, the levels, everything! So much to do, so much to see! Heck, I LOVE the controls for it! The perfect handheld game, and one of the best handheld games ever made. It will be very hard for something to top it, except maybe Pikmin 3. If you don't have it, GET IT. RIGHT NOW.
