    get both golden sun GBA games if you haven't played them before and you have a DS Phat or Lite. They're epicly fantastic RPG's, especially the second one. Great graphics, awesome puzzles, and a decent storyline.

    Summon Nights: Twin Age
    Sonic Rush not Sonic Rush Adventures
    Mario & Luigi: Bowser Inside Story
    Zelda: Spirit Tracks
    ...yeah that's my recommandation. Don't get KHDS if you didn't play the first one on the PS2. If you did then its all good brah.
    TWEWY is overrated just to let you know.

    TWEWY - definitely not overrated. great art, great music, unique (though hectic at times) gameplay and a colorful assortment of characters.
    mario kart DS - prob the best racing game on DS. also good for multiplayer, if ever.
    FFTA2: grimoire of the rift - if you like the FF series, the earlier FF tactics games, or RPG/strategy games in general, this will eat up your time
    Proffessor Layton - whether you get part 1 or 2, you can't go wrong with the best puzzle games on DS (not recommended if you don't like puzzles, obviously, lol)
    pokemon SS/HG/P - what nintendo handheld has never played pokemon?
    Zelda : ST - just a great game.
    GTA : CtW - you don't get too many titles on DS where you run from cops and kill people. lol

    Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
    Yoshi's Island DS
    Professor Layton(if you like puzzles/riddles and such)
    And Final Fantasy Tactics Advance A2 is a great turn based strategy game.

    Can't think of much off my head, but there's a lot more [​IMG]

    First of all, i respect that you actually BUY people's hard work instead of being a pirate about it. Anyway, nobody can get wrong with Bangai-O. It's the ultimate pause-from-other-harder-games break. I suggest you get that one, also seeing you're into RPG's. get Magical Starsign if you can find it. It plays just like the mario RPGs.

    Pretty much everything I would have said already has been, so here's what's left over:

    Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor
    Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey
