I've decided that Professor Layton is the best DS game.

    When you add it all up (GFX, music, game play) and take away your own personal bias, multiply by the uniqueness of the DS and it's control system. Professor Layton comes out as THE best DS game.

    I did the maths. It told me I was right.

    i would have agreed with you a couple of weeks ago but after finishing the world ends with you and playing ninja gaiden DS i must say that these 2 games do a way better job using the DS possibilities for inovative gameplay

    prof layton could just as well have been a PSP game although i must admit being able to doodle on the screen was handy

    Full quote Endogene. There many games as TWEWY which use DS in much more ways better than Professor Layton.

    It's not just about the way the user interacts with the DS. It's about the whoooole package. Professor Layton wins.

    I disagree. I didn't enjoyed it as much as I did with Phoenix Wright series. It was... Too slow. I love puzzles but somehow this game annoys me a bit. The storyline doesn't grip me.

    I felt that the problems were the puzzles weren't filtered for quality. Some of them were painstakingly easy, others were just plain stupid. But I guess that's what happens when you have SO many... I would have just preferred them weed out the poor ones.

    Games that were better:
    New Super Mario Bros
    LOZ Phantom Hourglass
    TWEWY

    I stopped playing when I guessed the ending and a friend, who had completed it, told me I was correct.

    Prof Layton was really nice surprise classic, but nothing more. There are many titles better. It needs to improve on storyline and quality of puzzles as someone said above. And although the huge amount of puzzles was great, it would be nice if it didn't rely on puzzles so heavily.

    What about the hidden puzzles you had to find, and the way you had to move around. And of course, the doodling you mentioned is invaluable. It would control awfully on a PSP or anything without a touch screen. I don't see how you could suggest otherwise.

    I agree, some of them are all over the place! haha. I'm not saying its a perfect game. Just that it's the best DS game mathematically speaking.

    I've come to the decision that you are not authorized to say which game is the outright best DS game and that you cannot conclude your statement without being eaten by a hyena

    But I've done the maths and it IS the best DS game. It's not even MY favorite DS game but it is the 'best DS game'. You can't deny the maths.

    As with all scientific and mathematical findings, I expect you to publish a paper in a reputable scientific or mathematical journal so that it can be peer-reviewed before we can be expected to assume you are correct.

    The title of this thread gives you away (you've decided instead of you've discovered).
