    Hi sorry if this has already been posted but I searched and could not find a similar thread. Anyway, I was just wondering what are the overall best ds games ever? And which do you recommend?

    The best games in my eyes are:

    Hotel Dusk: It's an interactive graphic novel with puzzles. Doesn't sound like much of a game and it is mostly reading, but hey it's still one of the best experiences on the DS. I myself loved it even though I loathe reading.

    Kirby Canvas Curse: This is one of the most genius uses of the touchscreen ever used. You draw lines to guide your Kirby ball throughout many awesomely deisgned levels, this game could never be done on any other system quite as effectively. It's extremely sugar coated(which isn't a bad thing), but it's definatley fun for any age of gamer.

    Animal Crossing Wild World: If you're into relaxing in your games and having your own virtual life, this one is for you. It's the kind of game you have to play for awhile to get it.

    Tetris DS: It's Tetris on the DS and it has online play to, it's a get.

    Elite Beat Agents: A ton of popular American songs strung into one game with one game. It's a lot of fun tapping along to the beat in this one and it's an experience that could only be done of the DS.

    Why some popular games are a waste of money:

    Metroid Prime Hunters: It'll give you hand cramps and its single player sucks.

    Mario Kart DS: Snaking is super accessable in this game therefore in order to keep up with anyone you must snake. In my honest opinion snaking isn't fun unless you only play games to win rather than to engage yourself in its good gameplay...then it'll be fun.

    Starfox Command: This game is too basic for its own good, both in SP and MP. I'm sorry, but everyone on MP will do the same thing because there's not much else to do....so it's not much fun.

    I have heard many good things about Advanced Wars: Dual Strike, what exactly do you do? Every review I read just compares it to the GBA version. What is the main Gameplay in this game?

    IMO opinion the most overrated game on this site is new super mario bros.
    sure it's fun but for the 2 seconds it lasted. either everyone on this site sucks at mario games or they don't mind the shortness of it for me the game is too easy.

    Mario Kart DS and New Super Mario Bros are both awesome. That's part opinion, part review-esque observation. From a purely personal viewpoint, Lost in Blue and Hotel Dusk are both brilliant.

    I think its when you drift from side to side and it gives you a speed boost so its considered "cheating".

    just my 2 cents

    Snaking is when you drift side to side repeatedly taking all that was left of realism in Mario Kart DS. It sounds fun at first, but if you're like most people you'll find out it's not that fun to do and it's the only way to catch up with other MKDS exploiters.

    Also it's not cheating and it is a skill however exploitive it is, but many people find it unfun. Some people actually like to feel like they're racing rather than twiddling their fingers to get extra boosts.

    I agree with you it's a tad overrrated, but like the other guy said I still found it to be more fun experience than Sonic Rush. Far starters Sonic Rush was darn short as well and the main difficulty is just lazy level design, you'll constantly have to memorize a ton of things such as where that bottomless pit is or that spike comes out of nowhere and sometimes that gets old. Not just that, but it gets repetitive after awhile.

    With all of that negative stuff said I still think it's worth checking out and definatley better than the IMO lacking Sonic Advance games, but unless you're a huge Sonic fan you should check out New Super Mario Bros. first.
