I'm playing games that have been recommended by people all over the internet with a compelling, interesting, and creative storyline, and I've decided to touch up on some of the DS masterpieces. Can anyone be so kind as to give me a list of what their games with the best storylines are, or the list of others if you prefer? They may be old DS games but that doesn't matter to me. Thanks for your support.

I found soma bringer to have a nice story even though maybe it's a bit too simple... I liked it a lot.

Other games with a good storyline.. mm...Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2 (LOL) XD just kidding, that game's just a "fight till you fill up the book and you win the game" with no story at all, so stay away from that one if you want a good storyline.

I also liked Luminous Arc's story even though it's a huge mess of clichés, the first one being better than the second.
The World Ends With You (TWEWY) has got a some kind of original story, if you can stand all the J-POP crap and fashion stuff in the game, it's worth playing.


Probably there are some more, but they don't come to my mind at the moment ^^

I did enjoy the story for ffta2. I'm not even sure why people bash it in that aspect, well, other than that it's not as good as tactics. Frimelda's quest chain just made me sad. I wanted to crush Addel the first time I met her. Watching Veis cast vanish for her first turn every time she showed up made me laugh. The game made me like the characters. That should count for something, right? Then again, I can't understand why people are recommending FFIV's story. Unless you enjoy how someone can strap a bomb to themselves, jump off an airship into a place that's covered mostly in lava, blow up and survive.

I also liked Professor layton's story. Sure, the villagers give you math homework for no reason at all, but at the end you really respect the man in the tophat.

You could also go with Trace memory and Hotel Dusk.

The DS has many, many tactics games. The good side about it is that those type of games usually tell a good story. Bad side, they take such a long time to complete.

Hehe, I've played most of the games mentioned and many of you are right, they do take a while to complete. The ones I couldn't beat or just lost interest in the gameplay, I had looked up on wiki or some other gaming site. I stopped playing some of the games mentioned but for the storyline I'll try my best to complete. Keep the games coming!

I liked Custom Robo Arena.. The story was really good..

Also Pokemon Ranger SoA

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Rings Of Fate.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon

Those are really the only games that kept me going till the end of them..

I find it very weird all the games I've played, none of them seem to have something that really "Woah, or wow'd" me.

FF4's story, personally, was good, not great.
Phoenix Wright series is very interesting, but the stories are always just murder mysteries, and doesn't really make me think that it's THEBESTEVER. Again, good, not great.
So far, in Soma Bringer, the story feels.... rather weak. No offence, since it's a fun game, but the story and some of the characters really feel weak in terms of a few things.
I guess TWEWY has made the most inpact, even though the first week was pretty meh. Joshua probably did the most impact, ha.

Of course, I enjoyed every one of those games, but I guess my standard is just too high, when it comes down to storylines and plots.

EDIT: Oh, I forgot. Advanced Wars: Days of Ruin. Despite some hating it for not having a lot of content, I absolutely loved the darker, and much more serious tone.

The JPOP style and the pin fashion stuff was not essential for the game that does have a good storyline (I acknowledge that). The rest of the content though seemed just stuck together to appeal the thousands of fans that are fanatics of JPOP and attract teenagers (girls too) with fashion pins.. OMG IT SHINES! >_> bah
I think it dumbed down the game a bit and it made it less enjoyable... to me at least, since I'm a person that HATES J-POP and playing a great game for hours with the same music in my ears is just... annoying.
