    I like SNES style games. I also like Zelda but find FF and Children of Mana really boring with that slow attack system. Turn based whatever. I don't see the fun in that.

    I like Mario Kart, Zelda, Mario Bros, and just Snes style games really. Final Fight, double dragon etc.

    Because I'm left handed and feel strange holding the stylus in the right hand, I find a lot of games hard to play that use the stylus all the time.

    I wish the SNES emulator worked better for my R4 but never mind.

    Do FF and Children of Mana get more interesting? The battle system is so boring. Are there any Zelda style RPGS?

    I'd immediately recommend Castlevania (both Dawn Of Sorrow and Portrait Of Ruin). They went back to the side-scroller format ... somewhat old-school. I love them both.

    Several games have an option to switch to left- or right-handed mode ... have you looked into the game options to see? I think it'd be kinda weird using the D-Pad as A/B/X/Y, but hey, it's better than feeling truly awkward.

    I love FFIII, but I don't mind the turn-style fighting so much. If you mind it, then I probably wouldn't recommend it.

    Two possible suggestions, though I've never played them, are Lost Magic and Deep Labyrinth. I haven't played them though, so don't hold me to anything there. I've also heard Lost In Blue is good, but again, not played it yet.

    Anyhow, try Castlevania.

    EDIT: I totally forgot two that lookout mentioned ... I second both Yoshi's Island DS and Mario and Luigi: Partners In Time. Both excellent games.

    I don't know about anyone else, but I also love Mario Vs. Donkey Kong: March of the Minis ... Lemmings-ish, and a blast!

    Thanks for the replies. I didn't play FF3 or COM much. What's the fun in playing them? Is it the story line? Is there much of a challenge? I was fighting Orks in FF3 at the start of the game and it was really boring. If it gets better please let me know as I'd like to see what the fuss is about.

    Yoshi's Island is good so far. Is it the same as the snes one?

    Nope, but the system is the same. The Yoshi Island on GBA is the same as the SNes one though.

    I have the same issue... that being left-handed.

    Some games have a few left-handed options (Brain Age is the best I have seen), but not all of them work that well.

    It truly can suck being a lefty in a righty world!

    old school snes styled games eh?

    another code/ trace memory
    new super mario bros (not that good a game coz its too similar to the snes games imo)
    sonic rush (one of the best DS games so far)
    Kirby squeak squad (reviews say its fault is being too similar to older kirbys)
    FFIII (too old school imo)
    mario and luigi partners in time (fucking awful imo, level design sucks, sprites sucks, story sucks, forgot the entire game when I finished it, hated it while I played it, the first one on GBA rules however, get that one)
    plus theres lots of rpgs, action adventure games on GBA you could check out
