Here's the Top 10 out of a total of 33. Played about 111 hours and 48 minutes total.
  1. Colors! 3D (42:53)
  2. Etrian Odyssey IV (22:19)
  3. Etrian Mystery Dungeon (13:56)
  4. Fantasy Life (10:55)
  5. Animal Crossing: New Leaf (5:40)
  6. PICROSS e (3:32)
  7. Internet Browser (2:49)
  8. Nintendo eShop (2:40)
  9. The Starship Damrey (2:17)
  10. Fairune (1:20)

So basically most of my 3DS play time in 2018 was spent on arting and Etrian Odyssey.

I did use the handheld more than in 2017, but most of my game time's going to the PS4 these days. And now that I have a really good mobile phone, I'll probably end up using the ol' 3DS even less. I mean, Etrian Odyssey is well and good, but now I have multiple classic jRPGs, cRPGs, and adventure games at my disposal, all on a thing I carry around for reasons besides just having gaming on the go.

That could change if I got a new 2DS or 3DS XL, but that's money that could go towards a Nintendo Switch instead.

1. Pokemon Ultra Sun 37:35
2. Pokemon Crystal 31:31
3. Radiant Historia Perfect Chronology 26:36
4. Etrian Odyssey V 23:43
5. Mega Man Legacy Collection 19:07
6. Mercenaries Saga 3 16:14

A down year, equally do to not having time for gaming and to there just not being as many new 3DS games.

1. Pokemon Shuffle 485:50
2. Nintendo Badge Arcade 46:15
3. Picross e8 23:36
4. Jewel Quest 4: Heritage 19:26
5. WarioWare Gold 12:21
6. Pokemon Picross 5:29
7. StreetPass Mii Plaza 2:02
8. Nintendo eShop 1:33
9. Alchemic Dungeons 1:17
10. Activity Log 0:49
11. EDGE 0:16
+4 other things with 25 minutes between them (system stuff+games I accidently opened)

Pokemon Shuffle and Badge Arcade I played almost every day.
Made steady progress on e8 playing just now and again.
Jewel Quest I picked up during my Christmas trip home and played a bunch.
I could probably spend a lot more time with WarioWare trying to get the target scores on the games and the remix modes.

2. Pokemon Ultra Sun (45:53)
3. The Alliance Alive (35:03)
4. Breath of Fire (24:19)

Totals seem to be down a fair bit this year, but I suspect that if I could pull a similar track record for the Switch things would look awful different

So with Bowser's Inside Story for 3DS out, I know I can't be the only one wondering how it's famously awesome final battle theme made the transition to 3DS. Well......



I'm, uh, a touch disappointed, honestly. It's entirely possible this is a bad rip, perhaps, but the instrumentation sounds way off in places.

Though there is a new final battle track for Bowser Jr.'s Journey, which actually sounds a lot better. Especially once you get to the one minute mark.

And sadly, one of that small number was Urban Champion for god only knows what reason.

As for my usage, man, I'm really not getting a lot of mileage out of my 3DS these days.

About damn time! I should really pick it up too, whenever I can drag myself away from my PS4 and my Android-based retro cRPG/jRPG collection long enough to remember that I still have a 3DS.
