    Well after going through a phase of "Wanting" to have a PSP and thinking that the PSP was meagerly superior to the DS, I
    think back and say to myself that i was an idoit for believing that. (Probably since most of my friends own PSP's now a days.)

    So i recently picked back up my DS and added many games to my M3 Real/Sakura/etc. which i have never played before and
    are interesting to me now:

    Tony Hawk's American Sk8land
    Peggle Dual Shot (After playing this game on my friends Iphone i instantly dl'ed it [​IMG])
    WWE Smackdown vs RAW 2010
    Nanostray 1 & 2
    Meteos
    Flower, Sun, and Rain: Endless Parks
    Avalon Code
    New Super Mario Bros (Picked it up once but didnt want to play it, than after playing NSMB Wii I wanted to play on the DS)
    Jackass: The Game (I feel like a real jacka$$ for adding this to my collection of games, and absolutely loathe the overall gameplay)
    100 Classic Book Collection (Not really a "game" but my mom wants me reading more and got interested in some of the books)

    And I was wondering if anyone here could suggest realitivley fun games for me to add on my 4GB memory stick.
    I like all kind's of genres.

    Hopefully i can finish all my games by the time the Final Exams week comes [​IMG] (exams fml).

    I'm just glad you tried F.S.R. I'd consider that game to be the single most underrated game of all time, a true masterpiece.

    Megaman ZX (Advent), KH 358/2, Days GTA:CW, Pokéon Platinum, Lunar Knights, The Dragon Quest Games, Phoenix Wright games and N+ are the ones I can think of.

    Yeah but i already beat them, and I never like having to replay games for some odd reason.

    Well Thanks for the suggestions anyways [​IMG].

    Mediocre? Then you don't know what's good [​IMG]
    N+ is a great game, really enjoyable. Also try Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon if you liked Advance Wars.

    In my eyes some of them are mediocre. Yes N+ is alright, so is Fire emblem but when I played it (Fire emblem) i didnt enjoy it
    that much, but its an ok game.

    Since this is a request thread anyway... Why do many people seem to like these Shin Megami Tensei games? I've never played one before and I haven't heard much about it until recently *prepares flameshield.*

    They seem like standard fare but is there something else that makes them stand out? Should I play them in a certain order?

    It combines dungeon crawling with monster collection, and overall it has this hardcore feel to it, but without being as soul-crushing as say Wizardry. There are two fan-translated SNES games which are pretty good... I am yet to start the DS ones.

    Hmm that sounds pretty cool, I'll have to give this a try. I saw a screenshot from the (I think) upcoming DS game, and it looked like it had an Etrian Odyssey looking map which, anything that reminds me of Etrian Odyssey deserves a try in my book. [​IMG]

    This one is a bit different though, it's an SRPG that skips the negotiation from previous SMT games, (don't worry, it returns in Strange Journey), replacing it with a bidding system. Yeah, that game you saw was Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey coming out in March. It should remind you of Etrian, it's built on the same engine.

    Yup, but don't expect any map-making.

    Yes but don't expect Etrian Odyssey because Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey will be much more deep and challenging
