    Are there any games that still have many non-cheating people playing without using FCs? I've played Mario Kart a couple times and it was pretty good, but that's about all the online I've played so far.

    About all I can think of are Mario Kart DS and Wii, the Pokemon games (although the online system used is sort of terrible), SSBB, and Tetris DS.

    Mario Kart DS (and rightly so, just about the only online DS game I really played a lot)
    Fifa probably too, I enjoyed that quite a bit myself
    Maybe Worms 2 too, I remember playing the GBAtemp tournament with that game smile.gif
    Tetris DS ?

    Brawl online is terrible, it takes forever to find someone.

    it doesn't even work for me most of the time, i have to use dunno how many stupid modifications to make it run
    and unfortunately brawl plus doesn't have online support much


    i see lots of cheaters hackers on mario kart wii, since then i mostly play only ghost races or single[with maybe friends]
    tetris ds is a nice one

    cod again got lots of cheaters, but hell....is there any game w/p cheaters?
    i stopped caring a long time ago and just play, if it's a hacker, good luck for him, at least i'm having fun

    What's SSBB?

    Anyway, I think Metroid Prime Hunters should still have a strong community, because if it was bursting with people last February (2010), it should do so now given it was released in 2006. However they're all very competitive, so I recommend first playing the game a bit, or you'll be dying all the time.

    Super Smash Brother Brawl.

    A good way to know which games have a strong online community is by browsing GameFAQs:

    From this we can deduce all Pokémon games, Metroid Prime: Hunters and the latest Yu-Gi-Oh! game all have a strong online community.

    Oh! That's what I thought at first, but then I changed my mind thinking it has to be something else, since it's about DS online communities. [​IMG]

    I just remembered a great way how can you find people for games which require FCs, here. It's (Ninty's?) FriendCode forum, so if you'd like to find people for a game and not many will want to join you here, try that one. [​IMG]

    You'll always find a match in Metroid Prime:Hunters. You will always find out that most of the players are cheaters too.

    There are various Brawl opponent finder services that use FCs on the internet for this reason (and for not having to play pointless 2 minute matches with items on when you actually find a match).

    I'm sure there must be a version of fsmash.org for some DS games, you just have to look.
