I've had a DS for just over a year now, both an original, and a DS Lite, but I've hardly scratched the surface of DS games yet despite having loads of them. Why's that? Well, because I'm catching up on the countless fantastic GBA games of course! There are just so many incredible GBA titles available that just seem better suited to hand-held gaming. I'm not sure what it is, but I'm actually really not looking forward to the transition from GBA to DS. I absolutely love my DS to bits, it's one of my favourite ever gaming platforms I've owned, which is odd considering I've only ever completed one DS game. A lot of the games just feel right to be played on a hand-held. I'm not completely certain, but I'd say the most common times or places to play on a hand-held console would be on public transport, playing whilst in bed, playing whilst watching a TV show that won't quite hold your attention, or any other kind of situation where you don't have complete concentration or have to play with the sound turned off. For me, DS games just feel a bit too 'full' for that. Like I'd be missing out if I played without sound, or without giving it my full attention. And then there's the games, oh man, the games! Not only does it have some fantastic ports that'd even put the port-heaven PSP to shame (Mario 3, Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island, Zelda etc) it also has some incredible exclusive titles such as Final Fantasy Tactics, The Minish Cap, the Fire Emblem series and countless others. If you've got a DS and missed out on the GBA-era, do yourself a favour and check out what you missed out on; you won't be disappointed!
