Well i know some people dont like sharing their DS and thats fine by me but i for one LOVE giving my DS to somebody who hasn't played one or has called it stupid and just seeing the joy they get from the experience. I put on a game show them how to play a bit and then most of the time they end up loving it and getting a DS. This is also a good way to start conversations, or make friends with people.

So What games do you guys recommend people should use to get new gamers hooked onto the DS ? I personally use

Mario Kart DS- Everybody
Cooking Mama- Mostly Girls or little kids
Brain Age- Older People
WarioWare- Random people (This one hasn't really worked to well for some reason)
Master of Illusion- The shuffle games trick is great to start up the DS thing
New Super Mario Bros- Everybody
Jump Ultimate Stars- Anime Fans
Trauma Center- Everybody
Eyeshield 21 Max Devil Power- Sports Fans

So what about you guys what do you use or recommend using ?

BTW i funny little thing. I had a friend who never plays video games except Madden. He wasnt too crazy for alot of games on the list i showed him but he saw me playing EBA and now is in love with it

that's exactly how i was hooked on the ds. when the phat first came out, imho it looked quite fugly, and the graphics were horrendous compared to the psp. though i was initially attracted by the sleek stylings of the lite, and after seeing my friend playing eba it just blew me away. WEEEE BUTTONS!

o and what sealed the deal was:
i was sitting on the bus with the same friend, and he was wearing his ipod headphones. i asked him if i could play his ds, and he said he was using it. confused, he pulled out the ds and *cue the music* he showed me this marvelous little invention, i like to call the r4

LOL, at least I use it during Japanese class and my friends around me are all like 'LET ME TRY!' and i think I even got a few convincing their parents to buy it for them cos it's 'purely educational' haha

Holy cow, no Elite Beat Agents/Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan mention yet? Damn, I've had two cousins and three or four friends buying a DS after playing the game!

(actually, I bought a DS for the exact same reason as them)

Hmmm, I will either use Sonic or Mario since they are iconic. Please mention that you can go on wifi with the handheld.
