    Does anyone else have any troubles playing FPSs on the DS? Modern Warfare is practically impossible for me. Are there any games which have left handed options, or the option to use buttons instead (like Metroid Prime Hunters)

    I don't have any problems but I am right handed.

    Same as me - left hand obscures half the DS - glad LoZ:Spirit Tracks had a left handed option.

    I have an extendable Stylus which alleviates the cramp - maybe something you can try?

    Where do you get this extendable stylus from? Have you tried Modern Warfare DS?

    No particular complaints for me (I use a pen-sized stylus). I can play Art Style: CODE on DSiWare alright, but I want a left-handed option for it.

    You can get them from Play.com (Hori - officially licensed - 2pack)

    Modern Warfare DS is still tricky, would have preferred a Left handed Option

    If you wamt a reason to kill yourself play C.O.R.E., it's got lefty flip too..and terrible gameplay.
    Of course, of you don't feel the need to end it all play MechAssault Phantom War, lefty and buttons.

    I have this problem also with some games. I've been trying to train myself to use the stylus in my right hand, like I do with my mouse. [​IMG]

    Between insane and insecure
    I really don't have any problems, then again I am able to use both hands [​IMG]
    I'm sorry that was mean, I do have troubles with most FPS's with either hand >.

    I think you should try "Left Brain Right Brain 2"

    In this game you learn how to use the other hand... it's good if you pratice every day.

    -Edit-
    Oh, and I don't know why in hell they made a second game, I don't know about the differences, I played the first one and it helped me a lot.

    Have you played it or if not do you know if it works?

    Yes, I played it but you will have to play it everyday for at least 20~30 minutes, if you really want to change it's up to you make a profile in this game and play it everyday.

    Thanks to those stupid exercises in the game I can write with my left hand but it's not 100% yet (very close to it).

    As I said before, I never played the second game and I don't know why they released a second game because there isn't much to change, so I can't really say which version is better.

    But in almost all OS's you can change the buttons of the mouse and most low end mouses work fine both ways.

    True that. It just became awkward when I was in school, so I just eventually changed to using the mouse with my right hand. Felt horrible at first, now it feels fine. In fact I can't really use a mouse with my left hand any more. [​IMG]

    I never could use a mouse with my left very efficiently; I learned with my right straight away.
