SPC writes, "The Nintendo DS is nearing the end of its life, and it is one of the best-selling dedicated gaming platforms in history. There is still some fight left in the system with games that are forthcoming like Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, despite its successor, the 3DS, already being out.
What I have planned is a five week celebration of one of my favorite gaming platforms period, the Nintendo DS, showcasing what I consider to be the fifty best games the handheld has to offer. The plan is to present ten terrific titles every Thursday. There are so many brilliant titles to choose from that I am sure I will miss some of your favorites. No need to wait until the last week to mention your most cherished; feel free to sound off whenever you'd like.
In cases where there are multiple games in a series, I will usually pick the one that I enjoyed the most to represent the franchise on this list. However, this rule will not always be followed. With that out of the way, let's get to the first set of ten."
