In the style of Tolgar's epic PSP games recommendations list, I thought it might be useful to have a thread where all of the recommendations are listed on page 1 for future reference. Now, before I get ‘olded’, I’ve collated a load of recommendations from the posts in the several outdated existing threads.

With plenty of new 3DS owners, there may well be people looking through the piles of shovelware to find the gems in the DS back catalogue, many of which are becoming harder to find, so I hope this thread is useful.

Let’s stick to stuff that is recommended by more forumites than not, rather than being a list of everything available- I'm certainly happy to debate my initial suggestions! Any objections or futher additions? Add a reason why it should be added (or delisted!) if you can. thanks you !!
