So, I'm finally getting a DS...

I've finally decided to cave in and pick up a DS for Christmas this year. So, I have to ask the community: what games should I pick up?

I'm a big fan of RPGs and adventure games. I'm already planning to get Legend of Zelda and The World Ends with You. I'm not interested in playing through Chrono Trigger again, despite any new features/content. So, what else have I missed out on that I should check out? What's coming up that I should set my eyes on? I'm all ears.

Rails? The DAY/END threads don't need no stinking rails, they just meander like a drunk looking for a bench to flop down on~ Gorvi

Hell, 'derail'? This is like calling the surface of the sun 'warmish'. Somewhat lacking in appropriate magnitude~ Jpublic

That's too applied for my tastes. Math makes the most sense to me when it's reality bending abstraction. Or when it's evil~ Frederec

Wow - thanks for the suggestions, all!

No one's mentioned Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates yet, and I've heard mixed reviews. Anyone know if it's worth a look?

It was a lot of fun playing it with Kat, and she loved the single player, but I never even started it. The multiplayer and single player are pretty much two different games.

An old one that gets over looked these days:

Kirby Canvas Curse

Still one of my favourite DS games. It was also the first DS game that convinced me that the touch screen was a good idea. Not that that's really an issue anymore, but you know...

A rental/borrowing look, yes. Give it a try first. Its one of those that if you like the battle system, its great, if you don't, you'll snap that little card in half.

VG for the truth. There is so much it certainly will entertain you for quite a while. And I don't even think even with all the great suggestions, the surface has been scratched. I'm hoping more pop in and give more suggestions. I doubt you will be able to play them all...but the more you have to choose from the better...

Most stuff is pretty much covered. Enjoy, there are enough games on the DS to make it your primary console.

I thought I was the only person who picked that up. My girlfriend is not fond of games at all, but whenever she comes over and I am working on something else she always asks to play "that crossword game"

The amount of content in that game is astounding.

Also... how did we get so far in this thread without anyone mentioning the greatness that is Picross. Speaking of which... for those of you that are stuck at work today may I recommend WiiPicross

I've had a couple of friends tell me their DS is their primary system, and they own Wii's and 360's.

Awesome suggestions, everyone! I appreciate the help.

Disgaea is all you need. I put about 50 hours into it on my DS alone.

It is a great little system. If I didn't play my PSP so much it'd be the DS you'd see me raving about so much instead. Portables rock just as hard as the big consoles now.

Aside from the RPGs, you need something pick up and play in small bites.

I recommend:

1) Elite Beat Agents

2) A good pair of headphones.

It's bizzare, stylish, unique and really fun.
