    Hello!

    I've decided to find my DSi and Acekard and start playing on it again. What are the best games in your opinion, guys. I need some tips ;)

    Thanks.

    Off-topic question: Is there anyGameBoy emulator that works on Acekard and R4?

    • Solatorobo
    • Metroid Prime: Hunters
    • Sonic Rush (Series) + Colours

    Thanks! I've already played some of these, but I'll definitelly try the others.

    I hear everywhere how World Ends With You is awesome game, but the game alway freezes on my AK2i at same spot and retailers don't sell it in my country anymore :(

    You must be using a faulty ROM or an outdated AKAIO release, I've encountered this problem before. Don't worry, I have an AK2i myself and played it with little hiccups.

    My ROM was from *Snip!*. Maybe I should try to update AKAIO.

    Thanks all! I will surely look after them!

    You were right! I tried to play it. Gameplay is awesome and sprite animations are pretty smooth.

    Edit) I don't believe I made this post. I was at work until 30 minutes ago! However, I'll still edit it to make things a bit more clear. :)

    ====================================================

    For your first question, here is a list of the best games - in my opinion - on the Nintendo DS. They will be sorted within their respective genres by how much I recommend them.

    Color Key:
    RED = US VERSION NOT RECOMMENDED
    GREEN = NO WESTERN RELEASE BUT FAN TRANSLATION AVAILABLE
    BLUE = NO WESTERN RELEASE AND NO FAN TRANSLATION
    LIGHT BLUE = NO WESTERN RELEASE, NO FAN TRANSLATION, AND NO FAN TRANSLATION NEEDED
    YELLOW = WAS NOT RELEASED IN US BUT HAS AN OFFICIAL ENGLISH RELEASE
    PINK = WAS DISCONTINUED EARLY ON AND MAY BE DIFFICULT TO FIND PHYSICAL COPY
    ORANGE = PERIPHERALS NEEDED
    BOLD = ONLINE FEATURES
    BOLD ITALIC = ONLINE FEATURES DO NOT WORK IN FLASH CARD
    NO FORMATTING = RELEASED WORLDWIDE, NO FAN TRANSLATION NEEDED, NO ONLINE FEATURES, WASN'T DISCONTINUED, AND ALL VERSIONS ARE OKAY

    This color key only works with approximations, as I am not sure for all of the games listed.
