The thread title still makes me chuckle.

My oldest son is now interested in Pokémon. I bought him a pack of cards to play and trade with his friends. Are any of the DS or 3DS games any good?
They're excellent. Considerably more complicated than the older games but still pretty good.

I thought about starting him out on the Pokémon Sun on 3DS. I wouldn’t mind trying it out too. I’ve never played a Pokémon game.
My rule of thumb is if you've never played a Pokemon game before, start on the latest version which in your case would be Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon on the 3DS. That way all the Pokemon and mechanics are new and fresh and you don't have conflicting issues with previous gameplay. Us older guys who started with Red and Blue on the original game-boy have a harder time adjusting with every new interation IMO.

Do Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon only work on the newest 3DS? I think we have the XL. I remember reading Minecraft and a couple other games only work on the 3DS that came out recently.

It will run on the original 3DS. Just not nearly as well as the revised 3dS. I've got an original 2011 3DS and Sun &Moon worked on it, just not nearly as well as on the newer hardware.

Question, please answer if you have experience;
I've had a Wii a few years ago but sold it.
Now I'm thinking of getting it for the light gun games (I have a Dreamcast but it's hooked up to an lcd and no wish to get an old crt). Are the ports of house of the dead good compared to the DC version? Any other games worth getting? Any game similar to Virtua cop? Also, how do they look today on a flat screen?

Alright how come no one told me about Luigi's Mansion port on the 3DS? I've wanted to play Dark Moon but wanted to play the first still. Just came out yesterday.

I’ve been tempted to grab it. I love the series.

I'm playing Bloodborne now but should be done in a week or two. This game seems like a good follow your for the Halloween season.
It’s pretty short and gets you in the spirit. Dark Moon is one of my favorite games on the 3DS.

Fire Emblem: 3 houses is as good as advertised. Feels like Fire emblem mixed with a little Persona on a proper console. It's feeling like its going to be a lengthy game though.

I'm officially a member of the Nintendo Gang crew lol. Got a v2 Switch and 2DS XL this past weekend. So far I only bought games (Ocarina of time, Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon, Mario Kart 7) for the 2DS. Looking to get Zelda BotW for the switch this week.
