    I got to the library today and saw the new nintendo power. I read some of it, and it had a review for N+, which I had been looking forward to seeing this month. I looked online to find more information about it to see if it had arrived anywhere, if it had been dumped yet, etc.
    Gamespot says it doesn't come out until July 7th! What the hell?!

    then I noticed that line rider is coming out on ds. that sort of made it better, because I'm looking forward to that.
    anyway... are there any really good simple games that are already out? I'm pretty bummed about N.

    Ninja gaiden is good, if you like action, and REAL ninjas.
    Pheonix wright is good as well.

    Real? Maybe. But Ryu is more of a Ninja who said "Fuck it" and began killing everyone because he realized he had no stealth skills.

    Perhaps I should've been more specific. I meant by ninjas that aren't off Naruto.

    lol yeah, agreed with you, unless it should be:
    But Ryu is more of a Ninja who said "Fuck it" and began killing everyone before he realized he had no stealth skills

    There are LOTS of good games, but all depends on you, if you tell us more spesific of your definition of "good games" we can tell you things you might like.

    I mean really mindless, simple things that you can just casually pick up and play. sort of like N and line rider.
    just games that are fun, but don't have stories, tons of items, characters... simple.

    Feel The Magic: XX-XY?
    Tetris DS?
    Taiko no Tatsujin DS?

    They're pretty much pick up and play.

    Ninja Gaiden won't be for everyone as the stylus controls on a personal level will work for you or won't, so it's an acquired taste I'd honestly recommend trying out first if you can.

    Of the DS library it really depends. If you're into FPS COD4 and Brothers in Arms are best overall. Side scrolling platforming can be had with New SMB among plenty others. Of the 3D games though that are platformers not much is all that good though SM64DS and Tak did pretty fine. Racing...Asphalt Urban GT 2(not 1) and Juiced 2 are pretty good choices as is NFS Pro Street I hear. Puzzles, fairly well depends on tastes but there are plenty of Nintendo classics and other goodies like Meteos and Puyo to choose from. Not much on the system as far as fighting goes but I do hear the Bleach game is pretty sweet. The system I will say does kind of lack RPGs but FF3DS and Contact I'd recommend greatly, and for the action-rpg end of stuff FFCC: Ring of Fates is excellent as is DQMonsters Rocket Slime, and if you can deal with the touch controls and absurd retreading of the same dungeon time and again Zelda Phantom Hourglass are choices. DS has a few good sim titles, and a fair few more that aren't so hot but Sim City DS and especially ANNO 1701 are great choices. Oh and if you are one to keep a pack of retro arcade things about the konami game isn't so good as you can easily lose incoming things/bullets on it, but they scaled the Namco selection quite well and that's a good cheap one to have.

    Hope that helps...go check gamerankings to compare reviews for content, scores as you know are subjective and places like Gamespot are bought off.

    I will actually READ your question thoroughly >_< If you want a simple-minded pick up and play game that you can shut off at any one moment if you so choose to... Geometry Wars: Galaxies is the way to go.

    Enjoy.

    I've seen a similar thread about tmonkeyt asking for games that dont have storylines....

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=82991

    Many suggestions there, look it up...

    And YuGiOh 2008, i think its story driven, is it?
