    I'm wondering which DS games are held like a book because I really like that and would like to try more of them(is there a complete list somewhere?).

    The ones I know of (not counting all those Brain Trainings and Academies/Ages) are:

    Hotel Dusk
    Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword
    plus some Japanese games like Nanashi no Game or visual novels like the Tennis Prince, Love plus etc.

    I'm interested only in games which are in English (or translated/patched), does anyone have any more tips? Thanks! [​IMG]

    100 Classic Book Collection
    Flips series

    Otherwise, not quite sure what else. And 2 out of the 3 are just books that you read.

    The only one I can think of that hasn't been mentioned already is Rhythm Paradise.

    An obvious one which has not been mentioned is Brain Training - but I guess it doesn't even need a mention?

    I have played some others, but I cannot think of them right now, but I will try.

    Oh yeah, the Lone Wolf series! I tried the second one on PC emulator, but couldn't get past the first few screens, I tapped and tapped and nothing happened. I'll try to find the first gamebook and give it a try. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the other tips too, but it looks like no "real" games (meaning rpgs, action g. or even visual novels) have been released besides Ninja Gaiden, Hotel Dusk and perhaps counting Rhythm Heaven as well. Games like word puzzles, various kinds of tetris, girlish games and so forth just don't spark my interest [​IMG] (although I'll check out the Girl's Diary, or whatever it's called, even if it won't be held like a book it has a full voice chat [​IMG]). I'll be hoping that one of the visual novels gets translated and then I'll finally try out yet another "held like a book" DS game! [​IMG]

    EDIT: Quantum of Solace? That sounds good, but I don't like the graphics too much and style of play. But if nothing's better on. .[​IMG]

    Say, do you think we should go and try to do a full list which would get stickied, so that people won't have to search hard?

    It's another word game, but the Crosswords DS is also held like a book.

    Yeah Lone Wolf Books, i, you can find them on Projekt Aon(Books- Tools...don't know if linking is allowed). I liked them, but only the first two books are made.

    Game Book series

    Get Aquarian Age if you decide to play these games because it has the best story and characters.
