IGN: The Top 25 Nintendo DS Games

IGN writes: "It's been four full years since the introduction of the Nintendo DS. This dual-screen, touch-screen handheld was a system first received with skepticism when it launched in the US in November of 2004. Over time, it began to prove itself. The dual-screened handheld that had everyone, gamers and developers alike, scratching their heads has become the most popular and most purchased piece of video game hardware.

But it's not on the strength of the hardware alone. The reason why Nintendo's DS has enjoyed its success is that it's been a system supported by strong software. Games that have taken advantage of the opportunity presented by its unique capabilities -- its two screens, touch sensitivity, Wi-Fi connectivity and more -- and turned that potential into real, compelling gameplay. Games that we now seek to recognize". (Nintendo DS)

Meh, not a very good list IMO. There was few games that got the mentions they deserved but the fact that they had Tactics A2 instead of another, superior Square Enix game(of which there are many) is something I disagree with. It's a really good game but they've got a lot of much better games on there.

Luminous arc is a much better tactics than Final Fantasy Tactics A2

This'll be very useful. Just picked myself up a secondhand DS Lite today.

Seems like a fair list, but to me, it's just more proof that the PSP's library is the more fitting handheld library for my tastes. Not a whole lot of games that are up my alley on there.

Don't even go there. This list is a joke and doesn't even scratch the surface of the good games found on the system.

Would have picked Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
I wouldn't go with Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow as the Castevania choice. Because it was first on the DS isn't a good reason. Definitely Order of Ecclesia is much better. Dawn of Sorrow's artwork isn't as faithful to the Castlevania series as Ecclesia is. Ecclesia is like a female version of Alucard in Symphony of the Night. You can also shapeshift. A much better pick! Enjoyed it much better and drops the stylus gimmick.

That’s it, I’m done with IGN.

Ever since they revised their website it’s so slow and (for me) it will freeze for a few seconds so you cannot scroll the page!

Bring back the old site!

Booo this man whoever wrote this article should be fired! What an awful awful best of DS list >< no one people think the DS is a fluff system with this kind of junk being thrown out. Maybe 4 games on that list should be there other than that... I mean the man put Tetris on there. Yes Tetris is great but it's standard even the iPhone has Tetris it's not a system defining game! No Layton among so many other wrongs on this list. LKSJdf;lakjsdfoiandfa;sdjf and rant over ;)

This List is pretty bad. Tetris DS shouldnt even be near the top 50 let alone at 6. Id have way more rpgs in this list if Id have made it. And a big meh at New super mario bros.
