I kinda ended up with a little backlog of 3DS games over the years, and I've kind of resigned to the idea that I'll probably not end up playing some of them. Trying to figure out which to play/ prioritize, and which to forget about. Of the unplayed/ unfinished games, I have:

Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (never played the original, this one caught my eye)
Majora's Mask
Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam
Tales Of The Abyss
SMTIV

I definitely want to play Majora's Mask at some point. I started Paper Jam not too long ago because I had the itch for a Mario RPG, but I'm not really enjoying it that much for whatever reason. I bought Tales when it came out because I'm big into RPGs, and I loved Symphonia and missed Abyss when it first came out, but then it just got backlogged, and I've kind of become disenchanted with the Tales series. I got SMTIV when it first came out, and I played it for a few hours, but struggled a bit and lost interest (only other game I'd played before was Persona 3, which I know is just a spin-off of SMT).

If you aren’t enjoying Paper Jam, kick it out. Everything else I would play.

Dark moon is probably the first game i enjoy despite the fact that 2ds screen is so small.

Dark Moon is such an underrated game.
Honestly has one of the best (if not the best) graphics for a 3DS game
The controls are smooth, the gameplay is terrific and Luigi is just such a bro

Majora's Mask Play
Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam I'd say play but if you aren't enjoying it, then skip
Tales Of The Abyss Play
SMTIV This is iffy. I'd say play but only if you like dungeon crawlers with monster collecting.

I'd say play ToA and MM.

Just curious, what is it about Paper Jam you haven't really gotten into? I'm only asking because I've been in the exact same situation as you, I played it for a little bit and it just never really clicked. I'm thinking it's kind of the linear/predictable progression of the game? It feels more like you are playing levels that involve RPG battles than actually playing an RPG.

I'm honestly not sure. There are little things I'm not into, like the giant paper craft battles (though those have only happened a couple times) or the sections of having to find Toads. More than that, the story and the overall world just doesn't feel that interesting or charming to me. The settings all feel kind of bland and uninspired, and it doesn't make me want to look around and explore and stuff.
