    What do you think is one of the best ds games of all time and why? I personally think that the Castlevania series is the best thing that happened to the ds, mainly because that it takes you back to the old side scrolling games, and almost always has an epic storyline that makes you want to play it over again. I tried playing some fps shooters, such as call of duty.. needless to say I actually like it but I know I shouldn't because fps games on the ds = terribad. Another reason why I created this thread was mainly.. well I'm running out of ds games to play, and some suggestions would be helpful to me and others.

    I love the Phoenix Wright series, and if I had to choose it would be... the first game. Why?? Because it was the game that allowed me to love the series. Phoenix Wright has funny moments, emotional, and "FUCK YEAH" moments. Not to mention the great cast of characters in the game.

    I only played the first pheonix wright game for the ds, I sorta wanna get into the series and complete the other games, just that I remembered how frustrating that game was and I had to strain myself from using gamefaqs for help.

    The World Ends With You is my all time fave on the DS. Also check out Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded, pretty fun gameplay but no storyplot.

    Shin Megami Tensei:Devil Survivor..It's like one of my Favorite RPGs.Why I like I think it's a good game;because of the Length of the Game and how you can Change how the Game goes by what you do and say.

    Also,you Gotz to play Dragon Quest IX Sentinels of The Starry Sky...It's like Woah The best DQ game ever made...Just one thing made it God for me. The "3D-ish" Visual.

    And Thumbs up to TWEWY and Kingdom Hearts. :yay:

    The World Ends With You - awesome gameplay and story
    Phoenix Wright series - for the story
    Professor Layton series - it's so hard though I used the gamefaqs the whole time

    it really depends on the type of games you like though.

    The world ends with you for me too, its an absolutely brilliant game. Where else can you play as Jesus who can shoot laser beams?
    Nine Hours Nine People Nine Doors is a close second.

    Advanced Wars, both of them but if I had to choose it would be Days of Ruin because of the story and multiplayer online.

    If you like brick breaking games then Arkanoid is a must.
    Castlevania - Dawn of Sorrow's soul system cannot be beat and IMO is the best Castlevania game for the DS.
    A shooting game I'd recommend would be Metroid Prime Hunters because of how the touch control scheme works so well.
    Fighting games I recommend are DBZ Supersonic Wariors and One Piece Gearspirit, Why? Specials! :P
    Space invaders is very fun, and that fun is multiplied 5x if you use the DS/DSlite with the rumble pack.
    Plants vs. Zombies is Plants vs. Zombies.
    Time Hollow has 0 replay value, but that first time is something I recommend you should experience.

    Disgaea DS, amazingly funny with endless replay value as you grind to level 9999!
    999 is one of the most brilliant games on the system because of the story, and a close second.

    Hotel Dusk. Close followups would be Phoenix Wright series, 999, and TWEWY, in that order.

    I've beaten almost all of the games that was mentioned in this thread, I will definitely look into space invaders, hotel dusk, and one piece. Also I forgot about dbz supersonic warriors 2, I play that game like every day with my friends, so addicting.. Too bad it doesn't have wifi though.

    The game I currently like the most out of my collection is Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey, with SMT: Devil Survivor (I actually own the 3DS Overclocked, but it's an enhanced port of the DS original) and Super Scribblenauts a close second. The reason: I like challenging games, and I like games where your character has lots of options. The SMT games are brutal and demand that you use all the numerous options available to you to succeed. Super Scribblenauts was much less difficult, but the ability to do pretty much whatever you want is very fun. I frequently boot up Super Scribblenauts just to see if/how a new adjective works, or how a combination of objects interact.
