The 3DS performed very well this year with strong RPGs from extremely loved game series. It was a tough call this year and I had to get down to the nitty-gritty to choose the best game this year.
Fire Emblem: Fates Revelation/Birthright/Conquest
Fire Emblem has never been stronger on 3DS. Awakening was a huge game to follow up on and Nintendo did it with this three part trilogy. The large epic scale that Fates creates as well as the refined tactical combat, animation, art, characters, and customization helped create the strongest package this year for the 3DS. The games bellow offered great experiences in all these departments, but Fates did it all in one package.
