    I just beat Final Fantasy III and I need something easy to recover myself from the efforts of going through such a crappy storyline. Could you guys recommend me something easy and classic? My new game has to meet these conditions:

    1. A game you can actually complete as opposite to these games you just pick and play like Cooking Mama, Mario Kart DS, Chocobo Tales, etc...
    2. A game that doesn't suck hours of your life searching for every single coin/ring/banana/star so you can unlock the super-mega-happy-ending that you get when you complete 126% of the game (that's why Castlevania isn't an option).
    3. I would love a classic platformer like Gunstar Heroes for Megadrive/Genesis, Rocket Knight Adventures, all the Mega-Man series for SNES or Dynamite Headdy (like games like that still were being made).

    Any ideas?

    Sonic Rush, definitely. Watch out for Sonic Rush 2 as well.

    I agree. It's the best platformer you can get on DS.

    Thanks everyone for their suggestions, but I'm already playing New Super Mario Bros. and not enjoying it much and I tried Sonic Rush too but I didn't like it 'cause I kept falling into bottomless pits [​IMG]
    On a side note: yesterday at night I searched for some of the videogames that I consider classic and old-school and they were all developed by Konami and sister company Treasure Co. It appears from their websites that in the future we'll have a load of these wonderful games for the NDS.

    When you first start playing Yoshi Island DS you might think its a great game, but it quickly becomes stale and you will soon realise that it's no Yoshi Island SNES.

    It's unfortunate that a lot of nds owners tend to sneer at the gba-slot. If you're really serious about old-school platformers then you need to play Astro Boy: Omega Factor by treasure. It might look cutesy, but it's a hardcore beat-em-up/shoot-em-up/platformer that puts most nds games to shame.

    Konami's Ninja Cop (aka.Ninja Five-0) is good too. Like a hybrid of shinobi and bionic commando.

    Both excellent games

    This is sadly true. I was so psyched when I started playing it, but before I even got to the first castle I was just like... what the hell.

    Yoshii's island...I agree. I was hyped since it got good reviews and everything. but i just lost interest in it. throwing eggs gets so repeatitive and it's not like the levels get harder or anything. basically, it's you trying to collect stuff.
