Oh, and speaking of the 3DS..
I'd skip MGS if you've already played it or own it for PS2 or on the HD Collections. Its an inferior version of a great game that you can buy for PS3/360 at probably a better price.
I'd skip Sonic Generations too. Or at least wait for it to be a lot cheaper. Its $10-$15 for the console version when the 3DS version is still $25-$30.
I'd also wait on Mario Tennis Open. Its a fine game, but not worth the price it is at right now.
As for games that you should consider that you didn't list:
- Mario Kart 7
- Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward
- Star Fox 64 3D (get if you loved the original, just a straight remake)
- Cave Story 3D
- Resident Evil: Revelations
- Tales of the Abyss 3D (only if you love RPGs and haven't played the original)
- Adventure Time (only if you're a fan of the show and loved the gameplay in Zelda 2...its $20 at Best Buy right now)
- Pushmo (this should be the first game you download from the e-shop)
- SMT: Devil Survivor Overclocked (only if you like strategy RPGs and haven't played the original)
- Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (if you love FF games or love rhythm games...might want to watch some gameplay vids first)
- Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance (I'm not a fan, but if you like KH games...)
As for upcoming games:
- Etrian Odyssey IV: Legend of the Titan
- Luigi's Mansion 2: Dark Moon
- SMT: Devil Summoner: Soul Hackers
- Castlevania: Lords of Shadows - Mirror of Fate
- Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
- Pokemon X/Y
- Project X Zone (its great we're getting this game and I'll probably pick it up...but it didn't sell well nor review well in Japan...where it would be expected to be a lot more popular than over here)
Also, do you already have the 3DS? If not, Best Buy has $20 off any 3DS XL or normal 3DS. So you could maybe buy the pre-installed Mario Kart 7 3DS XL bundle for $180. Saves you $60 overall. Even if they don't have that deal on the bundles, saving $20 means you can buy another game.
