    I already have the games listed. I am interested in a platformer I think.

    Is Castelvania: Dawn of Sorrow really that great? Anyone have it?
    I also was thinking of Tetris DS, cause of the online play.

    Tetris is alright, online play doesn't add to the game IMO. But Castlevania is incredible. IMO one of the best games of any system yet.

    Hm, out of all the games I own, these were good (in no particular order)

    New Super Mario Bros.
    Tetris (multiplayer)
    Castlevania : DoS
    Final Fantasy III
    Trauma Center
    Phoenix Wright (both Ace Attorney and Justice for All... start with Ace Attorney though)
    Mario 64 DS

    I'd recommend Phoenix Wright above all of those, though. Ace Attorney's my favorite game on the DS so far.

    I really like Advance Wars, but if that's not your game then New Super Mario Brothers gave me hours of gameplay

    I agree both of those games are really great, but I borrowed them both from a friend and played them to death.

    of the two, i'd pick tetris ds over dawn of sorrow. castlevania was a great game, but i got so much more out of tetris (b/c of wifi) than i did from dawn of sorrow. outside the two, do you have or have you considered new super mario bros.? this game is my game of 2006.

    Same here! I can actually practice on Mario Kart and Metroid without affecting my actual games scores! A little cheeky I know :p Beup DS is great when using the universities hot spots too.

    If you like Tetris, the DS version really makes the game fun again. It's great to play with friends locally. Playing online isn't bad, but unlike MK DS which is great both ways, this one is more fun when you can see your friends squirming as you decimate them. :eek:

    I've cleared well over a 1000 lines on the highest level of Tetris and only put it down because of fatigue. I beat all of the other games on level 5, except the boring stylus Tetris. :eek: The Donkey Kong Push Tetris is awesome. This one is a blast against a friend or the CPU. :)

    Castlevania DS... *droooooool* BUY IT AND PLAY IT NOW!!! :eek: Absolutely the best game I've played in years. It has no equal.

    Castlevania?

    It's about Dracula basically. All the games have a different (or direct story sequels like Aria and Dawn of Sorrow) stories but usually revolve around some people trying to bring back Dracula.

    Gameplay is like a 2D Metroid. get power ups, unlock more of a big map, big bosses, non-linear game play. etc. Throw in the RPG style upgrade system AND weapon upgrade system and it's near enough perfect. Especially since they usually have fantastic soundtracks too.

    Yes. :D
    Get both. Or flip a coin.

    Tetris DS is super super fun if you can find several friends to play with over wifi. The online play, however, is too limited and takes too long to get into a match.

    But... I'd have to recommend Dawn of Sorrow first (I would tell you to play Aria of Sorrow before Dawn though, as the later is a direct sequel; you should also have played Symphony of the Night, but that requires you have a Playstation, and isn't portable).

    Castlevania is a good game....it can get real boring though..theres only so many candles I could hit down before I've had enough. I would say get tetris if you want to play online and I like the Urbz for some reason:)

    Hmm.. I wonder if it's legal to use a cracked copy of the games I own..

    Just ordered a M3 simply, but mainly for playing Monkey Island and Sam and Max on ScummVM ;-)

    Bomberman (from Ubisoft) can be a lot of fun if you play it with friends (no internet-wifi support!), and you should be able to get it really cheap..

    I totally forgot about Scumm :eek: Probably a silly question but does Monkey Island 3 work with it?
