Like most of you, from the time I was a kid, I've spent my life playing video games. But, unfortunately for me, I only started playing my wonderful Nintendo DS lite about a year ago. So, during this time I've played virtually all of the great, newer games like Zelda: PH, Advance Wars:DoR, Final Fantasy:Ring of Fates and Rev Wings, all the Phoenix Wright games, etc. etc. Anyway, what I'm trying to find are those slightly older games that are awesome, but I might not have played or even heard about.

So, the question is, if you were stranded on a desert island with your DS (w/unlimited battery life, of course) and only 3-5 DS games that are at least 1 year old, which games would you want? Remember, nothing recent. And keep in mind, I love all genres. Whether they are rpg, fps, rythm, turn-based strategy, romance???, whatever...I really am trying to find those older, hidden gems that I might not be too familiar with. Thanks in advance.

Well, falling into that category, I'd have to say:

Castlevania: DoS
Castlevania: PoR
FFIII DS
DQM:J (Not sure if it's a year old yet)
Elite Beat Agents

Castlevania: DoS was really the first game that made me glad I bought the DS.

If you liked Advance Wars, then it's a given you want Steel Horizon and Age of Empires as well as Panzer Tactics.

None of these are likely going to be simple purchases without actually having your store order them in though.

I haven't played these games, unless marked with an * but the really popular ones are

Mario Kart
New Super Mario Bros.*
Animal Crossing Wild World
Metroid Prime Hunters
StarFox
Castlevania (both of them)
Diddy Kong---dont know if its a year old
Lost in Blue
Trace Memory*
Sprung*--I think its the closest a DS game comes to Romance...
and...
and...
Wario Ware touched* Play through this as you are crash landing. Its fun, but its just that short.

Tetris DS
Geometry Wars (Just for when I require some retro fun)
Theme Park DS (Not a perfect game but I can lose many hours with this)
WarioWare Touched
DoomDS With shit loads of Maps (cheating?)

So I pretty much chose games that can last a long time, there are better games out there but not ones that can help me lose so much track of time. Doom & Tetris were always games that I can play whenever and not really be that tired of them.

Thanks for the great ideas:

1. Panzer Tactics is cool!
2. Jump Ult Stars - the patch works great, it's really a fun game (I can't believe they didn't release it here!).
3. I can't wait to play some of these others like Worms open Warfare and the Castlevania games
4. Lost in Blue is very helpful, since of course, I'm STUCK ON A DESERT ISLAND!. I've learned how to dig for clams on the beach and gather coconuts!

Thanks and if you think of any more ideas, send 'em my way!
