Default Good Game For The DS!

Yo, once again, I'm on a game hunt! A game for the DS, here are my preferred requirements!:


Cheap-ish...

Good storyline, aka, something to do afterwards!!!!

Something that makes you play it, and not stop!

Not something stupid and repetitive.... PLEASE I BEG OF YOU.

Not something that relies on the Wi-Fi for entertainment, because I kinda don't have that right now...



I already have: Pokemon Diamond, Nintendogs (waste), Mario Kart DS and Spyro The Eternal Night (REALLY bad game, I really don't recommend this one!)


I was looking at Chocobo Tales before, good or bad? Looks alright... Can a player tell me more about this?

Thanks guys! I love all the help I get from you!

I'd get a Castlevania game. Most likeley Portrait of Ruin. The Quests in it will give you something to do, and if you fully complete the game (which is hard, trust me), you get some pretty weird goodies.

I second the Castlevania games, especially Dawn of Sorrow. Soma is the most badass CV protagonist ever. I've also heard good things about The World Ends with You.

Yeah, The World Ends with You is great. If you switch it to hard mode when you can, or even just keep it on normal mode, it can be really challenging. The story's interesting, too. After the main story, you can collect "secret reports" from each chapter (there are 21) that reveal more about the story.

If you haven't played FFIV yet, the remake for DS came out. I've played it before on the GBA, and it's a great game. There's some bonus content after, as well.

I vouch for Final Fantasy IV DS as well, perhaps The World Ends With You in light of not playing it but hearing mostly good reviews for it. If you want character customization moreso than story get Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2: Grimoire of the Rift. Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow may be a rare find these days, but if you manage to get your hands on a copy then you surely won't be disappointed.

The World Ends With You is pretty good, I rented it, but I got sort of bored with it, but that might just be because I have like Video Game ADD.

I heard Final Fantasy IV was great.

Try Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2. It has a great storyline, immersive gameplay, and you never run out of things to do, ever. Plus, it's usually only 35 bucks!

Besides the RPGs listed here by these kids, I'm sure this one will blow your mind: Contra 4.

And for 20 bucks, it's a good deal!

These games are the exact games I would recommend.

Anything with 'Chocobo' in the title shouldn't have money spent on it.

How about the Phoenix Wright games? They're very fun, and cheap.

Or try the Advanced Wars series.

They always kick off my mobile fix for strategy.

Indeed, the Pheonix Wright games are great, I loved them so much.

Another game you could try is Phantom Hourglass, if you're a fan of Zelda games.

If you're going to get a Castlevania game (you should), go with Portrait of Ruin. It's longer and has wifi.

Meg beat me to it >.<.
But yeah, all of the Pheonix Wright games are awesome, though I will admit, there some thinking involved =P.

I loved Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. The more mature theme settles well as opposed to Dual Strike, which wasn't bad, but not as appealing as DoR. Music is a lot better as well.

My brother loves the Phoenix Wright games, but I haven't tried them out yet. They're pretty popular, I'd say look into them.
