List Rules Vote for your favorite Nintendo 3DS titles - Don't add a game to the list if it hasn't come out yet!

Vote for your favorite games on this ongoing list of the greatest Nintendo 3DS video games that have been released so far. Nintendo has been making the industry standard for portable game consoles, and the Nintendo 3DS is the best one to date. Take your favorite games anywhere, with brilliant titles like Super Smash Bros., Pokemon, and Professor Layton getting the 3D treatment in brand new adventures. The stereoscopic 3D effects look great no matter where you're playing, and you can always turn the 3D effect off if you don't want to use it.

Many critics were disappointed with the Nintendo 3DS during it's release in 2011 due to a severe lack of quality titles, but as the years roll on and the library of titles continues to grow, handheld gamers are thrilled to keep their 3DS in their back pockets. 

Vote for the greatest Nintendo 3DS games that have come out for the console so far. If your favorite game is missing, you can add it to the list so other people can vote on it too.
