Hello everyone I'll join the family soon but I am living in Macedonia (EU) and theres not too many options for games. But I picked a few based on reviews, videos etc. But I am thinking to get about 2-3 games for start to check them first.. Here are my options please pick 2 or 3 of them to recommend me:

1) Fantasy Life
2) Xenoblade Chronicles 3D
3) The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time 3D
4) Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate
5) Monster Hunter Generations
6) Final Fantasy Explorers
7) Ever Oasis

Btw I am a huge mmorpg fan so I like rpg style that's why these are my picks but I don't really like turn based rpgs. If they have good stories maybe I can think about them too.. also I am getting the 3ds to play mario and yoshiiii! that's why I am getting the consol so I'll get mario and yoshi games too..

Also I would like to get a classic fighting game (not Smash Bros) so which one would you recommend
a) Dead or Alive Dimension
b) Super StreetFighter IV
c) Tekken 3d Prime Edition?
(I heard DoA is best but still wanted to ask your opinion)

(One last thing I can get games from Thessaloniki/Greece and Kosovo too if you have any game store to recommend please tell me)

Thank you for your answers!

Fantasy Life is an action RPG that has that "mmo-like" feel to it. It has crafting, gathering & combat classes that work together to make you stronger & badass. Its flaw really being its writing, it is nice & funny but can get long winded.

Xenoblade might fight the bill as well to my understanding, though I have no clue how the combat is.

Both, MH4U & Gen have demos, but don't take those at face value. You will feel underpowered because the weapons & armor are. They lack their appropriate stats & skills. I guess it falls somewhat in the "mmo-like" part too as you will do plenty of farming for rare monster parts. MH4U is the traditional combat & if going for World, this is a nice starter. Gen adds Hunter styles (different ways to use weapons) & Arts (special moves). Both are slow placed games combat-wise, Gen less so.

Ever Oasis also has a demo. That's about all I can say, haven't played it yet.

Final Fantasy Explorers is another monster hunting game, also fits the "mmo-like" aspect . Again,, not much I can say about this one, didn't play it long enough to get a grip on it.

Zelda OoT is Zelda, action adventure, puzzles, etc. Cool game but would have the least amount of replayability comparatively to the above games.

All in all, MH4U is my top recommendation. Nice amount of difficulty that pays off learning, paying attention & skills, rather than brute force. Lacks an outstanding plot as it is not the point of the series so as the 2nd game, Xenoblade is my 2nd, assuming it fights the 'real time combat' part. Alternate to Xenoblade if that doesn't tickle you, Fantasy Life.

Thank you so much for help Kneesock! I was thinking to get one of Monster Hunter games but couldn't decide which one should I get.. Generations is the new one but from what I read from reviews the MH4U is a better choice. Also I haven't play a MH game before so I want the more noobie friendly one..

As the 2nd game I was thinking about fantasy life seems easier than xenoblade so if I get smashed in MH I can go back to FL to enjoy the easy gaming..

Also I heard that many people plays Animal Crossing do you recommend it for me?

Aye aye.

Ye, 4U would be the most "newb" friendly as its "story" mode explains a fair bit. Ultimately no matter which of the games, you will have to rely on common sense, reading & outside info to get the most of out the series since it is by no means amazing at it. Again, a game that rewards learning.

Fantasy Life should be on the easier side, yes, though it will kick your butt at times, not a complete cakewalk but I assume a whole lot better than Xeno. I haven't play it thoroughly as I do it occasionally, so I'm not anywhere deep into it. Maybe 15-20 hours in of what is 100s of it.

Animal Crossing, dunno. It is not an action game or what have you, a nice time waster really. The goal is what you make of it. I like it but I never get too deep into the dedication it needs to get the most out of it so I cannot say one way or another on it. Your mileage may vary.

I have Tekken, Street Fighter IV, and Dimensions. I highly recommend all three, as they all feel amazing and responsive; if you had to pick just one, however, Dimensions. Easily.

I played tekken 3 before on ps1 and street fighters on arcade machines so I know characters but DoA is totally new to me.. that's why I was thinking to get tekken first but I saw a lot of posts about DoA is the best fighting game on 3ds and after you confirm that I think I'll get DoA first thanks RA S1003!

Btw are characters cools in DoA like tekken? :D

Ooooh... That’s a toughie. Tekken’s cast is memorable in so many ways, but DOA’s lore is so good to me. I’m gonna have to go with Tekken, however, in terms of cool characters.

Sure, Christie and Nina are both assassins and so insane nonsense as part of their mundane activities, but you just cannot dent that Nina does it slightly cooler. :)

Looks like you've got a great list already. And if you're an MMORPG fan, then yeah, Xenoblade Chronicles is probably your best option on 3DS. The gameplay should feel quite familiar.
The new GFAQs interface blows a$$!
