Whoops, looks like youse forgot to multiply Pocket Card Jockey's points by a hundred.

Also, is it just me who firstly thinks of the 3DS as a SEGA AGES machine these days? Even the shite games are class 👌

For me, it's just a Pokemon machine now. I've been chipping away at beating one from each generation so I can have a proper stab at the Pokedex when Pokemon Home launches.

Before that, it was my Phoenix Wright and Monster Hunter machine. But I've completed all the Ace Attorneys, and my buttons don't respond like they used to so all my MonHan is on Switch. Still, between those and the Resi games that we got, Capcom did support the 3DS pretty bloody well, huh?

The only other thing I see myself using it for any time soon is when I play Last Window over Christmas.

They did. It makes me all the more bitter about their Switch support, or lack thereof.

Well done everyone - that is a good list. I don't have to feel guilty for not contributing now!

As I've said elsewhere, the points were a distraction. The discussion around the lists is the real point of the thread - hence Shanks' presence. Would love to see your list if you fancy contributing one!

I really should turn my 3ds into a Phoenix Wright machine......the issue is finding time to fit it in with all the other games I have on my still to play list.

Mine is now a dust collector and a Zelda machine as I have a Zelda collection which the 3DS has a few.

AA6 is probably better than most of those. AA3 almost certainly is.

I like how sure you are of that without even knowing the games. Laughing

To be fair, you'll want to rattle through the trilogy back to back. 4/5/6 can wait and probably benefit from a wait too as AA4 and AA5 are a pretty substantial drop in quality from AA3.

The trilogy are among the best games ever made, so Balla isn't wrong there. I wasn't quite as keen on number six, but it was alright.

Ignore him, 3 > 6 > the others (most of which are still good). You just have to be prepared for a bit of mystical stuff in a franchise that has channelling the dead.

6 would be up there with 3 in my eyes if it weren't for that bloody soba case. Laughing

Personally, I didn't find AA4 to be a big step down in the series. It did some interesting things. 5 though I found pretty boring, with the writing not as snappy as it used to be. Find it hard to care about stuff like Maya returning in 6 since it's not going to be the same under the new lead writer.

For me it's AA1-4/PLvsPW/AA1 > 5 of all the ones I've played. The first game is probably my favourite.

Somebody needs to get their AA6 on! I wasn't the biggest fan of 5 either, but the translation is noticeably snappier and the dialogue better in 6. Get it played.

For me, 3 > 6 > AAI2 > 1 > AAI1 > 5 > 2 > 4. Sorry Kriken: Apollo Justice did do some interesting things, but most of them didn't work. It also had the noodle case, Klavier Gavin, and... well... Apollo Justice.

I'd rank AA4 above AA5 in my eyes - there's genuinely no standout moments for me in AA5 - and I'd have ranked it equal to AA2 had that game not ended as spectacularly as it did. I love Phoenix's arc in AA4, the opening case is excellent and I enjoyed the final case. The middle of the game slumps somewhat, but hey ho. And there's nothing wrong with having a prosecutor who isn't a total dickhead. Made a nice change, actually.

If we're now doing AA rankings (I'm all for this thread becoming an Ace Attorney discussion thread) then these would be mine:

AA3 > AA6 > AA1 >> AA2 > AA4 >> AA5

Well if we are doing rankings see quote:

truth be told, 5 and 6 are forgettable, don't even remember a single case in them

True, and there is the ending... but the rest of the game was solid, and AAs 2 and 4 have some stand-out bad moments.  I didn't like any of the cases in 4 much apart from the last one, which dragged on a bit; and it's impossible for me to overstate how bad I found Turnabout Big Top.  Absolutely diabolical pacing, and I'm not sure it had any good characters either.  Hate hate hate.  Worse than the soba case by far.

That prosecutor point is also dead wrong, for me at least.  The prosecutor needs to start off being the villain, because odds are for the first few cases they're the only one that will really have an arc.  If I'm not enjoying rubbing their face in it, there's not always a great deal to carry me through the early cases.  

There's also the fact that I didn't like Klavier much as a good character either.  I found him smug, but the game was still portraying him as likeable.  I'm not female of course...

Trouble is, Layton's highest point for me is a good way below Phoenix's.  The ends of the respective trilogies were solid 8/10s, but they'd required whole trilogies to build up to that, trilogies filled with repetitive puzzles and non-characters and those more-often-than-not bobbins twists.  Phoenix farts out any old game and I'm probably 7/10ing it.  The fact that Layton's plot nonsense and weak characterisation ruined Layton vs. Wright for me says it all.
