    I want at least one Strategy RPG on my flashcart, but I can't fit more than 1. Please state your opinion on which I should put on it.

    Disgaea DS

    Why? because this game is just so much different from the tradition Strategy games! lots of interesting elements that makes the game special

    you could also try fire emblem for the difficulty [​IMG]

    I second Disgaea DS as I've played it on the PS2 and I still want to play it on the DS. Tons of fun absurd story. Only a few games have had me get a belly ache from lauging so hard and this is one of them.

    Your in the Philippines?

    What flash cart are you using and why aren't you able to fit more than one Strategy RPG? A 2GB MicroSD at CDR-King is what? P280? I'm using their 8GB with almost 2GB games and 650MB worth of MP3s. I've even tried the Castlevania: Portrait Of Ruin test.

    Disgaea is funny, but incredibly easy.

    So...NINJA TOWN D:<
    Best strategy game ever.

    My suggestion is the damn SEARCH BAR. We don't need a new "list every RPG you can" thread every morning, yet it keeps happening. The answers aren't gonna change.

    FFTactics A2 is probably my favorite of the bunch, I suppose.

    Fire Emblem IMHO.

    But seriously, why bother? Just pirate them all, so much classics out there, very hard to choose!

    Disgaea DS.
    I like it more (and the gameplay) then the other STRPG.

    Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift
    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor
    Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

    These are the best ones on your list, not to say the others are bad, these are just the greatest.

    Maybe you should use the SEARCH button to find what a "Strategy RPG" is before posting.

    Anyway, I've gotten completely sick of SRPG games, but I did like Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon a bit before hand. It was the last DS game I purchased.

    SMT: Devil Survivor (amazing story and different endings) or Disgaea DS ("unique" gameplay).

    Either Disgaea or Valkyrie Profile.
    Disgaea: Funny, Good Story, Multiple Endings, As long as you want it to be, plus you can play as Etna!
    Valkyrie Profile: Good Story, Multiple Endings, Tons of characters an Items, and kinda difficult.
    I like all of the ones you have listed though, Fire Emblem or Shin Megami would also be good choices if you want a challange.

    SMT: Devil Survivor. Seriously, it'd be hard to argue any other game above it for strategy RPG.

    Huh.. Missed Fire Emblem, so I went for Final Fantasy Tactics. But anyway, Advance Wars would be a class on its own in my opinion.

    This is for a specific kind I'm looking for which is strategy RPG. Not RPG's in general. Also, I'm not asking people to list, but I'm asking them which ones out of the ones already listed are best. Because I want one game on my DS that falls into the given genre and I want to find out which they think are the best. I do not think there are many threads like this yet, that ask people to say which is best for a specific genre , and not all of the games from the genre they know of. That's why I started a friggin poll.

    There is no 'best' game. There are better games based on individual opinions. I went with SMT, because it has a deep and entertaining battle system, and is quite difficult (I find many DS games to be horribly easy). The story isn't the most interesting, but it's a great SRPG.

    Advance wars series is also great, different but great, but basically all the games you listed there are different in their own right. Try them all and see which one YOU like and play that. As for statistical research, I think because of the generally 9/10 reviews that Devil Survivor got, it will affect your poll positively and stay at the top.
