Haven't seen one of these made for the 3DS so I decided to make one. Anything that needs to be added?
Any Japanese-only essentials?
>no Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon
baka senpai, it's a great game as long as you don't use the OP pokemon
Also should add rhythm tengoku, being in moon runes is fine since it's a rhythm game.
why is having both versions of each pokemon game essential
why is an inferior version of smash 4 essential
why is new super rehash bros 2 essential
why are ports of zelda games everyone's already played essential
why is the sims: wacky mii edition essential
why is titty ninjas essential
why is a port of a wii game essential
I'm a retard and I don't want to brick my 2ds that I just bought like a week ago. Besides I don't think I can do it anyway without a usb cord to connect it to my pc.
Anon, the risk of bricking is almost non-existent for O3DS and 2DS, provided you're capable of following basic instructions. If you don't do it before Monday, Nintendo will probably block browserhax and you'll miss out on the entire 3DS library for free. But yeah, you'd need an SD card reader. It's definitely worth it, though, trust me.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2.
If yokai watch and pokemon are on there, it definitely should be, given it's basically the same but with vastly better core mechanics.
They're very different games, the fanbase is divided. The further you go, the further it strays from the "core" MH experience. But they're all exceptional action games. 4U is my personal preference of the two on 3DS.
MHX is amazing, but strays SUPER far from the formula, to good and bad effect. Look forward to it if it ever gets announced for a western release.
Which one would you say would have the most content? I don't have any friends that have a 3ds so will I still be able to enjoy these games anyway?
>start with the four (4) Gen VI Pokémon games
>the first Theathrhythm
Someone should step in to update this one though, after 4 months we still don't get a replacement for the anon that made it.
Currently 4U has the most content. 4U and X have online multiplayer though so you could always play with anons here or just randoms.
In terms of general differences though, 3U is local only, has all the 3rd gen monsters (some of the best in the series), has a unique water mechanic where you can go in water and completely changes some things and loads of great quests although enemies are spongy so soloing the multiplayer would get tedious.
4U added two more weapons, a height system where you can climb and do leaping attacks, tons of new monsters and most 1st and 2nd gen stuff (little 3rd gen though), and has a pretty good tutorial.
X only has a couple new monsters but has the most old ones and is basically an anniversary collection. Also has styles and you can play as the cats. Some people are holding off though becomes capcom almost always releases an ultimate edition a year later that's the exact same game but with better balance, G rank (hard mode more or less) and some more monsters.
An important to note is each monster hunter is mostly an improvement over the last so going backwards can be hard. It'd be worth it to just do the single player of 3U and then go to 4U.
not the guy you're talking to, but is single-player monhun even worth playing? i've always wanted to get into the series but it seems to me like the japanese equivalent of fifa/madden/whatever, as in, the latest version makes the rest of the series redundant
