Or get a circle pad pro. I honestly don't understand the complaints about that either, worked fine when I needed it (for MH3U and MGS3D when I had an old 3DS).

why should you have to go and buy a peripheral to just make the game work properly?

Although, I made MGS work fine without it

I also had problems with the controls in the land sections. Turning the camera felt really un-intuitive and trying to keep it on an enemy was near impossible in the more frantic battles. I mucked about with the camera settings for it a bit too but nothing seemed to work.

I'm gonna dig out KI: U later .. it had great effects and lovely audio. I wanna see if the new 3ds with built in second thumb stick makes any difference.


Go to the 2nd post ... the early chart is now complete ! 8-)




Oh and if you haven't posted your times .. there is still 'time' to.

Interesting to see how the list compares to my favourite games on the system. I'm glad OoT (my 2nd favourite) is currently pretty high, and KI:U is doing pretty well. Bit of a shame Xenoblade (my favourite) isn't featured, but it's way too close to launch for anyone to get a decent time up I guess - I've played about 45 hours so far, yet to finish, but doesn't quite get into my top 10.

Water battling on our hand helds .. for some a little awkward, for others it enhanced the game and succeeded in adding tension and something unique
Said no one ever

I didn't find the water battles too horrid, but what I do truly miss are the water monsters themselves - especially ol' Lagi. At least we've got Zamtrios.

Ye I think, if there was a 100% water battle monster, I may have not have enjoyed it as much. All of the water types were amphibious and some of them were real devils to fight on the land. That said, Lagiacrus' lightning attack under water, looked magical almost (so long as you weren't too close).

I think Kid Icarus is a great game - would've been higher up my list if I actually owned it rather than temporarily borrowing it from a friend. I'm sure that this time next year Xenoblade would feature significantly on the list - mine has already increased a lot since I posted my time.

Forgot to add times from my New 3DS so I edited my post with the added times. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It's a 3D Sonic game on a handheld, of course I'm going to play it over and over, even if it's just the first zone. And besides, it's a nice little time waster while food to cook in student accommadation. Just be thankful it isn't Sonic Boom.
Also, can someone direct me to the thread from last year on the old forum? I'll keep up the hunt, but I have no idea where I'm looking.

Hmmm, a couple of things I wasn't expecting and a few I thought would be higher, although it is still early days. Also, I love what you've done with the top 10 numbers Bix!

My brother bought this out of lack of knowledge as to how average the game was. I found the first level to be actually very fun and what they should have done with the rest of the game, but that was it. Still, I don't know how you were able to get 70-odd hours out of one level, despite what you've said.

Okay. So I think I found the thread, but it is seriously incomplete.
http://web.archive.org/web/201410232128 ... 07&start=0

Only three pages, and it appears to jump between times quite a bit.

Aww thanks .. I really wanted to go overboard this time as its 'most played's' first time on SONM.

Also thanks OR for giving me a big easy click thingy on the home page.

Currently adding more stats into my funny looking spreadsheet.

Seems most the time spent on my 3DS is playing Animal Crossing, I really should stop buying games that I know I'll never play.

1st, Animal Crossing New Leaf; 544:01 (Oops)
2nd Pokemon Y: 12:12 (I think most of that is from leaving the 3DS on when I went out, I can't get into newer Pokemon games)
3rd Harvest Moon a new beginning: 10:59
4th Tomodachi Life: 7:19
5th Monster Hunter 4U: 7:13 (Was looking forward to it for years, just can't get into it)
6th Smash Bros: 2:25
7th: Mario 3D land: 2:18
8th: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D: 1:23 (really need to sit down and play it, I keep getting distracted)
9th: Zelda Link Between worlds: 1:05 (forgot I even had this tbh)
10th: Ghost Recon Shadow wars : 0:26

Wow, that's probably the most focussed list so far. That's a lot of good games that are sitting on under 10 hours.

Wow darkrula, amazing .. I thought they were gone forever .. I will add them to the OP along with a thank you to your good self. So good to see, especially the old faces and the charts themselves.

No problem.
It's good that we have something of it, at least. Since the ONM forums have been officially offline... how long, now? They were still active as of January, I think.

Ye ONM is no more but the old threads can live on if they were added to the wayback. Funny seeing my old avatar as well, which I obviously cannot change anymore 8-)


In this case the charts from both previous years are 100% there (they are the important bits really).. as I had thankfully included them in the OP's.

1. StreetPass Mii Plaza - 760:00
2. Pokémon X & Y - 446:30
3. Animal Crossing: New Leaf - 359:53
4. Fire Emblem: Awakening - 296:04
5. Project X Zone - 83:32
6. Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask - 82:47
7. Fantasy Life - 81:00
8. Pokémon Mystery Dungeon - 59:59
9. Pokémon Link: Battle! - 51:57
10. Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - 51:38

I have 2 3DS XLs so I combined the StreetPass and X & Y playtimes from both.
I've not really played my 3DS in the past 6 months other than to StreetPass and even that has been sporadic. If I had I'd imagine that'd have clocked another 200-300 hours on X & Y and FE, plus Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby would be on the list but I haven't touched them.
