Im looking for an RPG game with fun and long gameplay for the DS. Please don't say Pokémon or Dragon Quest, because I already beat all the titles of these franchises on the DS.

    I found both the Etryan Odyssey and Chrono Trigger interesting, but my favourite has to be Etrian Odyssey due to his similarity to Pokémon Mystery Dungeon.
    Thanks everyone.

    I know it's not really an RPG, but the Ace Attorney DS series are amazing

    Try suikoden tierkries for Ds its abt 256mb in size and has over I think 100 playable characters which is why I haven't played it yet but I feel with that many characters u have to have time to play that RPG. Chrono trigger D's like the other guy said because there's 13 different endings to unlock. Happy gaming

    I say either Chrono Trigger or Final Fantasy 4 so i believe there is still room for a "BEST ANSWER"

    best answer is Botz list :p
    let the user pick a game. though, there's no time info to complete them.

    it's an old thread/question, but let me add "Glory of Heracles". It was very linear, but I liked the story and fight style. but maybe not very long.

    Shin Megami Tensei best RPG series on DS

    Any of the Shin Megami Tensei series, Chrono Trigger, any of the Final Fantasy or Dragon Quest games, Saga 2 and 3 (aka Final Fantasy Legend 2/3) are good but require translation patches.

    If you like dungeon crawlers then the Dark Spire is good and despite supposedly being "Atlus hard" is actually easier than the Wizardry series it is based on (for example, you can save at any time outside of combat and there is no autosaving which means you can easily recover from being wiped out by reloading your last save and the spell to instantly exit the dungeon has not cost besides the usual one mp of the appropriate level that all spells have, in wizardry said spell costs all of your items and most of your gold).
