    Hello, I'm going to buy a Nintendo DS Lite very soon when my Cyclo DS cart comes in..
    I've seen the big list of DS games, but will you guys please recommend me some games in a smaller list.

    I've owned a PSP for awhile and i'm familiar with almost everything about it.. but I really want a DS for Dragon Quest 5.
    One of my favorite games on the Super Nintendo. So please give me a list of your favorite games. Please [​IMG]

    It depends on what kind of games you like.

    My favourite DS games are:

    Mario Kart DS
    The World Ends With You
    Ninja Gaiden DS
    Zelda Phantom Hourglass
    Yoshi's Island DS
    Pokemon Diamond
    Rune Factory

    Really, if you have never had a DS before, I would say get Mario Kart first of all, then Phantom Hourglass.

    DQ5? so you're into RPGs?
    RPG's i can recommend:
    -FF3
    -FF4
    -Contact (liekly the most creative RPG story i've played)
    -Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time
    -The World Ends With You
    -FF Tactics A2 (strategy-RPG)

    umm... other games:
    -Mario Kart
    -New Super Mario Bros.
    -Geometry Wars: Galaxies (actually has nothing to do with math - it's an overhead space shooter)
    -Picross DS (math puzzle)
    -Tetris DS (soo damn addicting)
    -Contra 4 (if you're into sidescrolling hardasfuck shooters)

    few others, but those alone will keep you happy

    lol thanks for the fast replies everyone.
    Yes, I speak a little bit of a Japanese, because I'm mixed.
    The only game I have played on the DS is Animal Crossing and I loved it.
    I will check out the games =] Thanks a lot!

    I see some of our members like to read. [​IMG]


    Why didn't I see anyone recommend Rhythm Tengoku Gold? That game is fun and addicting, although a bit hard at times though.

    I would also recommend Jump Ultimate Stars, The World Ends With You, The Ace Attorney series, Trauma Center, Warioware Touched!, Elite Beat Agents, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! and Mario Kart.

    Snaking means abuse of drifting, and constantly getting that speed boost.

    Final Fantasy Tactics A2
    Final Fantasy III
    Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime
    Luminous Arc (1)
    Nanostray (1)
    Mario Party DS (more fun on multiplayer)
    CrossworDS
    Starfox Command
    Worms (1/2)
    Pokemon Diamond/Pearl
    Dead & Furious
    New Super Mario Bros. (mostly for the multiplayer minigames)


    Hope this helps.
