    Howdy,

    I'm gonna buy some nds games from my nephew and thought i'd get on the brainy-bandwagon. Do you guys have a preference between Brain Age and Big Brain academy?

    maw.

    I too prefer Brain Academy. It has more minigames which are more fun than the ones in Brain Age.

    While I prefer Brain Age's more serious approach (damn, that Kawashima-guy isn't serious I think.), how about add in some games that require you to think too, like Phoenix Wright (oh crap, I think it's hard to find there) and Advance Wars (yes, you need to think and not check Gamefaqs :/ ).

    That said, I prefer Brain Age. I always seem to look at BBA as mini-games that aren't that good so I don't pick it up as often as I do with Brain Age.

    (But my friends also say that BBA multiplayer is fun stuff.)

    Haha, I had to check GameFAQs a few times because I got my ass handed to me, or a battle got out of control. Funny you should mention that.

    On-topic, Brain Age is great for training, as you need to do the same games over and over again to unlock new ones. As time goes on, the games get easier because you get used to them.

    Big Brain Academy is pretty tough later on. At first there's a lot of variety, but then that dwindles down in to pure unadulterated repetitiveness. You will end up playing the same games over and over, striving for gold, until you get bored of it.
