Previous GRecommends threads


This month we’re looking for the top 10 games for Nintendo’s secret best platform, the Nintendo DS.

Image

If you need a reminder, here’s a list of Nintendo DS games

Just list your top 10 below (each counts for one vote, so ranking them isn't important).

Voting is open for a month, and will close on 27 January.

As always, I look forward to seeing your nominations.

There is also still time to vote for your top 10 RPGs.

Man, Celer, you're really rockin' it with the GRecommends series! I think this could be a wonderfully interesting category as the DS had such a huge variety of excellent titles. I will do a spot of research and then return to share my ten favourites :-).

Definitely, I think the DS has the strongest line-up of all Nintendo platforms in terms of depth and variety.

List may change

  • Advance Wars Dual Strike
  • Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
  • Ghost Trick
  • Animal Crossing Wild World
  • Mario Kart DS
  • 999: Nine Persons Nine Hours Nine Doors
  • Picross DS
  • Kirby: Canvas Curse
  • Meteos
  • Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations

The DS had such a great library of games, probably my favourite handheld (very closely followed by the PSP).

  1. Ace Attorney Investigations 2
    Anyone who enjoys Ace Attorney games should definitely play this. It's like the whole first trilogy, with a better pay off than Trials and Tribulations, wrapped into one game. :wub:

    I've only picked one game from each series to keep my list varied.
  2. Pokémon Heart Gold
  3. New Super Mario Bros
  4. Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors
  5. Picross 3D
  6. Mario Kart DS
  7. Advance Wars: Dual Strike
  8. Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story
  9. Profesor Layton and the Curious Village
  10. Tetris DS

:lol:

I do own more than 6 DS games, but I'd not rate the others as particularly worthy of note. Still, my PSP collection is about 4-5 times as large as my DS'!

(Same goes for Vita and 3DS too... sorry jawa :P)
