    2.kingdom hearts 358 2/days
    A great story , great graphics and a profe that the DS is powerfull enough to reach the 3D graphics
    3.Dragon Quest V
    I'm not a fan of Dragon Quest series and this was my first one [​IMG] , but i really enjoyed this game , the gameplay was GREAT, and loved the story
    4.Chrono trigger

    I don't think I could name five good ones.

    I thought TWEWY was mediocre, Kingdom Hearts was overrated and way too repetitive, never got around to Dragon Quest, thought Chrono Trigger was pretty good, and thought FFIV for the DS was awful compared to it's GBA remake.

    I'd have to say Pokemon would be on there (it's still a great RPG), Nostalgia (not imaginative at all but still quite fun), Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (back when I enjoyed SRPGs), and I'm not quite sure what else.

    I don't really know. I guess I'll have to say.......

    Super Robot Taisen Og Saga Endless Frontier ~Just plain AWESOMENESS~
    Final fantasy 4 ~Pretty good~
    Chrono Trigger ~was okay....don't know why people say it WAS THE BEST RPG OF ALL TIME!!~
    I don't know about the rest since I don't play much....anymore.

    Hmmm... I just recently got in to RPGs again, so I only have 4...

    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time - Awesome game. If you haven't yet played it, do so. People say the WiFi play is laggy... Well, only if you choose "Visit". If you host the game ("Invite") it isn't laggy. Make the other person deal with the lag!
    Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates - Not quite as good as Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time but still really fun.
    Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story - I actually bought this one like... 2 weeks after it came out (Didn't have my AceKard 2i yet)
    Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time - This one is as fun as Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.
    -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- --

    As for WORST RPGs on the DS:

    Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days - Waay over-hyped, worst camera control EVER.
    Phantasy Star Zero - Also waay over-hyped, and also has an awful camera control. This one isn't "Bad", just really "Meh"

    I argee with you Phantasy Star Zero, i played the game around 5 hours and the only thing i did was beating monsters , collecting stuff ... Over and OVER !!! >:( .
    But i don't argee with you kingdom hearts , the camera is maybe awful but after 4 hours of playing you have the control in your blood and it's cake walk to control the camera ..
    the gameplay could be boring after a while , but if you see the and at kingdom hearts ds you cry at the end [​IMG]

    Cool game I guess.

    Graphics were good. Gameplay was solid.

    These are all I've really played.

    My list{

    1. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days(Great gameplay, Story, and Camera.

    2. Phantasy Star Zero(Addictive, and also good camera when you figure it out).

    3. Super Robot Taisen Original Generation Saga: Endless Frontier(Combat System is rather interesting, also there are large things besides the title [​IMG]).

    4. Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story(So damn funny, and that great battle system).

    5. Megami Ibunroku: Devil Survivor(Perfect Story, Gameplay, and Addictive Monster Capture Elements).
    }

    Other Comments{
    I never understand why people don't like the cameras in KH or PS0.

    Can I put my top 13? Pleeeeeeease [​IMG]
    1° Soma Bringer (This can be repetitive if you dislike big dungeons but I absolutely LOVED this game, Soma Bringer is perfect for a DS RPG in my opinion)
    2° Dragon Quest IV (great storytelling and storyline)
    3° Final Fantasy IV (excellent game, everything is good on it)
    4° The World Ends With You (you will have to get used to the controls, if you have faith and patience you will probably love it)
    5° Pokémon Pearl
    6° Chrono Trigger (I love this game but it's a re-remake or re-re-remake and I already finished it on snes)
    7° Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor (very addictive)
    8° Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
    9° The Dark Spire (incredible game for old school RPG fans)
    10° Fighting Fantasy (another great game for old school RPG fans)
    11° Knights in the Nightmare (innovative battle system, stupid tutorial but great game)
    12° Luminous Arc (I don't like FFTA2)
    13° Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyan (great battle system and addictive game)

    There are some other games and they are good but the IMPORTANT games for me are above.
