Nintendo DS Thoughts about best games


Recommended Posts

So I'm waiting for a Ds lite that I ordered in Ebay.


My main concern is that it is a counterfeit But I don't think so because I paid about 90 euros total along with the mario Pouch and sd card with 62 games.


Besides that what do you think about Ds and What games should I buy like the must buys games on the handheld console?


Also What do you think about the console, is it a counterfeit?


I'll leave a link to ebay.




This is the version I bought by the way not sure if it was the best choice

All 3 Castlevania games (Dawn of Sorrow, Portrait of Ruin, and Order of Ecclesia) are must-buys.

If you like JRPGs then you gotta check out all the Dragon Quest games as well (4, 5, 6, 9, etc).


I don't know if the DS itself is counterfeit (I doubt it) but counterfeit DS games are extremely common so be careful!

If you're getting a DS there are two games you must purchase, Pokémon Soul Silver and Golden Sun: Dark Dawn. If you're an RPG fan those games will keep you occupied for a long time. 


As for the DS itself, it does look kind of fishy to me. The picture at the top shows a dragon themed DS but I don't see it anywhere else on the page and I'm always wary of items that come from Hong Kong, they seem to be counterfeit more often than not.

I really enjoyed Super Mario 64 DS, the Phoenix Wright series and the Professor Layton series. PL and PW have amazing stories imo, and PL4 is the ony game to have made me shed a tear :blush:


I second Professor Layton (I think my avatar might too). It might just be my most favorite series. Phoenix Wright is also great.

I second Golden Sun. And since it can play GBA games, if you can find the first two Golden Sun, those are also amazing. Dragon Quest is also good. I enjoyed Luminous Arc. For something NOT RPG, Lost in Blue 3 gave me many hours of enjoyment.

The World Ends With You

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Digimon World Dusk or Dawn


Also I wouldn't be to worried about weather or not it is fake, in my experience if something isn't as described you message them, and start a ebay case, and usually it will be sorted out in your favor, although I would suppose it would be best to try and avoid fakes anyways.

Greetings everyone!


I just got my Ds lite yesterday and i have to say it does look to be the original. For the R4 and the Ds lite I paid a total of 90 euros which I think is a fair price.


Thanks to the R4 I'm playing games from mega drive or sega genesis if you will like streets of rage, golden axe and earthworm jim.


Very pleased with all your opinions and now i have to save money to buy some of the games which were listed here that i understand are very good.


Cheers everyone and thanks for helping me out
