Yessss, im glad people still remember that game. Cmon Atlus, give us a WiiU version
I totaly agree with their placement of Phantom hourglass. But Mario Kart DS was the best DS game imo,
Exactly what I though
Mario kart DS was definitely the best game on DS and one of the best multiplayer games ever. I remember doing 8 player local (with or without download play) Game is a masterpiece.
What about Super Mario 64 DS? Why has everyone forgotten about that game…
I know right! I love that game alot. it added tons of awesome features to the game, i loved it.
I know Super Mario 64 DS is a port, but it sure was amazing to me. Its on my top 10 list haha :3
Like you said, it’s a port. Seems like the list consists of original DS games.
It’s a remake, not a port
While there is much I don’t agree with there, I am happy Advance Wars DS is so high up the list.
I don’t see Elite Beat Agents anywhere on this list. So feel free to disregard it as faulty and irrelevant.
Can’t tell what this list was based in. Popularity, sales, reviews, or enjoyments? I thunk Black n White 2 deserve #1 and Browsers inside Story #2
You thunk? Really?
Where’s pokemon diamond and pearl??? Or heartgold and soulsilver???!! Super mario 64?? What about mariokart?! I’m sorry but this list is missing a few awesome titles.
Mario kart is there. But yes, they are missing some pretty impressive games.
Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver are considered remakes, Super Mario 64 DS is a port. This makes these not “original” games. This list only consists of games made for the DS before anything else.
But Phoenix Wright 3 was originally on the GBA and that’s… on there…
Maybe it has something to do with sales? because Black and White made world records on terms of sales. But on terms of actual content and quality, Diamond and Pearl are indefinitely better.
I will disagree on that >:3
I can argue that — not that it matters. Everyone has their preferences.
ahh the good old days, when nintendo used to actually make a profit
They still do O.o
Why make a comment if you are stupid and dont even know shit of what you commented?
You should never have skipped cognitive studies from first to seventh grade. Nintendo is making profits, take a trip to April and read their investor briefing. You have them confused with Sony and Microsoft.
They are the only ones making an HONEST profit…
Well the Xbots are making a profit to by deceiving the weak minded gamers…
I’m happy GTA Chinatown Wars and Ghost Trick made the list. Awesome third-party games!
yessss along with/world ends with you <3
heartgold and soulsilver should have been in the top five.
Why isn’t Super Mario 64 DS on that list? In my opinion that should be number one as well, why has everyone forgotten about that game?
Probably because it’s not an original DS game, it’s a port with some differences. It is a great game though.
No. No twewy + nsmb on 1? :S The hell? At least Ghost Trick is on there..
Spotted Twewy now, nvm that bit, but nsmb on 1 is just no.
What the hell is Phantom Hourglass, Tactics and METROID FUCKING PRIME PINBALL doing on this list? Credibility irrevocably destroyed.
No Suikoden Tierkreis? My favourite DS game easy!
Slightly disappointed not to see Golden Sun: Dark Dawn on there. At least Radiant Historia made it.
Golden Sun: Dark Dawn seems to be missing….oh well i guess.
They could have make the list about 50 games and still they would have missed a lot if games.
This ignorant fool is a typical Xbot…
And I would exchange Phantom Hourglass with Spirit Tracks…
Lol commader you have ben fooled by your best soldier.
I have no soldiers in NA…
Of course you dont…
That is not N-Dub Nation or Black Baron though incase you meant any of the N-Dub Nation group…
Which I do not belong to…
No wario ware touched?
what abut final fantasy 4 heroes of light and kriby mass attack
Why is bowser’s inside story not higher
I’m sorry but in my opinion no other DS game gives the charm, story, emotion, or addiction that The World Ends With You does. Easily number one.
bbbzzzzzzz, ds sucks bbbzzzzzzzz. im a BUZZZZZZ kill and here to say bzzzztendo is going to get killed by sony!!!!!!!
You should change your name tag when trolling idiot lol.
nope, im not going to bee like that!!!!!!(buzz) people need to know who its coming from.(bzzzz)
Yo dawg, i heard you’re a sony fanboy, so we put a PS4 in your PS4 so you can play COD while you play COD.
Golden sun dark dawn is top 5.
It should be top 3 to be honest…
Sickr doesn’t know about SM64DS’s existence?
Your sir, lack a brain.
Glad FF Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift and Radiant Historia made it up there. Those were awesome RPG’s. I definitely think Phantom Hourglass being #2 is ridiculously inflated. IF that game is up here, it should be closer to the bottom of the list. So many games better than that.
Why is Metroid Prime Pinball on the list?
probably because (bbbzzzzz) nintendo sucks. sony pbzp buzzzz killed the ds.
Sonyans on drugs as usual…
First it was darkness, now bees…
SAYSS (BUZZ) the fucking zrobot from the future!!!! baaaaaaaaa baaabababa bzzzz!!!!!
A better question would be why is Metroid Prime not on the list!
Of course not, The World Ends With You and Chrono Trigger are the best games on DS, Also Radiant Historia should be higher than 11, Spirit Tracks at number 3 or 4 with Radiant Historia and Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow following them. Aaaalsooo I don’t know if Okamiden is as awesome as Okami (wii) but if they have things similar then Okamiden definitely should be higher.
Should be Pokemon Platinum or HG/SS instead of B/W.
I’d say Pokemon Platinum is the best in the series…
But that’s my opinion…
Im so glad I bought a 3DS XL last week :)
LoZ: Phantom Hourglass < LoZ: Spirit Tracks
Phantom Hourglass is kinda overrated. But a good list overall! New Super Mario Bros. FTW! 50 times better than NSMB2!
Yeah, where is spirit tracks? So much better thank PH.
Spirit Tracks, World Ends with You, Pokemon…come on.
New Super Mario Bros…really ?
My Phoenix is only at 16th place?!
At least he got on the list. Plus, T&T is the best game of the series (rot in hell Morgan Fey).
I really cried at the last episode T_T
It is really the best game ever
Shittest list ever
I’m sure none of you guys agree- but those cooking mama games are fun!
You’re right, no one agrees with you, cause you are an idiot who obviously hasn’t played anything worth playing.
Where the heck are Kingdom Heart games. While some were eh 365/2 Days was simply awesome in my opinion.
And nobody remembers DQIX? NOBODY?
Whoever made this list obviously hasn’t played 999
Love how people comment complain about a “top” list when its all just opinion. Everyone has their own top list.
NSMB1 is probably my least favorite Mario game. It seems like the devs felt that since they hadn’t done the things the original SMB had done for a long time, they could just go back to that without adding anything new or even acknowledging the improvements upon the formula made by Super Mario World.
It’s missing the Kingdom Hearts games -.- I declare shenanigans!
BTW Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days is #1 on my list and Re: Coded is #2
anyone who’s played these games has to agree
I wouldn’t say black and white, rather any other game. 5th gen was the worst in my opinion. And damn it, no Megaman starforce
What about Spirit Tracks??
Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars? Really? That game was mediocre at best.
Where in the world is Dragon Quest IX? My favourite DS game right there. So many hours I put into that. I had around 365 hours for a single DS game that I couldn’t use Wi-Fi with (my routers never used WEP passcodes because WEP isn’t very secure).
Also, what about Zelda: Spirit Tracks? Or Layton and the Unwound Future? That game was super emotional. Sure they already have a Mario and a Zelda and a Layton and a Pokemon, but that doesn’t make the other ones worse.
Why is Phantom Hourglass at the top of the list, while Spirit Tracks isn’t on it at all? And why is Mario Kart DS so far down? Ah well, at least Okamiden is here… :/
I don’t agree with this list… who did this? Fox news? lol
Mario Bros isn’t that great on NDS, not that game.
