    All I can say is, if 18 is too old to play a DS, then I have no idea why they made a Grand Theft Auto for it.

    You're not too old.
    There's no set age for having a DS.

    It's not like it's illegal. Go buy one, you might won't regret it. [​IMG]

    Age doesn't matter when it comes to the DS. You'll see people in their 60s playing it and most of they have bad eyesight! The DS is for any and everyone to enjoy.

    Yeah, you'll look like a [censored] instead! [​IMG]

    Get a DS. You'll love it. Get that Midnight Blue DSi XL if you like big screens, too.

    [​IMG] My word got censored! When did that happen?!

    Pokemon, new super mario bros, GTA Chinatown wars, Dragon Quest IX. That's all I can think of right now, check out the threads that this forum has, there's a bunch of them for finding out some good games.

    You seem to be really hung up on age...I'm almost 20 and I love good games, not just the über violent tough guy games.

    Some of my favs:

    DQ5, Pokémon, Chrono Trigger, TWEWY, Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime, Professor Layton series...yeah.

    You're never too old [​IMG] but you should get a DSi XL if you're planning to get one.

    I play everything on the DS. It's got such a great library of games. Check out the essentials thread in the NDS - Games forum.

    You're not too old, but I'd wait for the 3DS to come out, since you're asking about it so late into the DS's life.

    Even if it's late, people still enjoy the DS, I'd still recommend it above the 3DS since it won't have many games to start with.

    I'm 39 and I have one. I love it to bits.

    I suggest a DS Lite though -- that slot-2, properly equipped with a flash cart, is a beautiful thing to have. Beats the crap out of a silly little camera.
