    I recently purchased a DS Lite (White) and two games for it: Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time and Pokemon Pearl version. Both are fun and interesting but I'm looking to buy some more. Especially those who use Wi-Fi technology because playing with my friends from all over will make the game last longer in my mind. :)

    What are some games you would recommend to me that you find to be your favorites?

    MarioKart, Castlevania DS, and C:poR are in my tops. I also really enjoyed Magical Starsign and Tetris DS. Overall, there are lots of great games available for the DS.

    Too many to list. But my overall faves are...
    Pokemon Diamond and Pearl - Not brilliant, but very addictive.
    Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow
    Meteos
    New Mario
    Yoshis Island DS (grew up me)
    Tetris DS

    Oh I give up already.

    It would be a close call between Yoshi Island DS, and New Super Mario Bros. (I really love platformers)

    Then Mario Kart, and Super Mario 64.

    The game that will most likely take the number one spot will be Zelda when it is released in October!

    New Super. Mario Bros., definitely. You might also want to try the Super Princess Peach game, which offers a Mario-like style with some different variations.

    Mario Kart DS is a must buy, IMO. Also works with WiFi.

    Animal Crossing was also pretty good, you might want to give that a try. Works with WiFi.

    Big Brain Academy and Cooking Mama are quick pick-up-and-play games that each have their quirks and are pretty amusing & fun.

    Also take note that there is a web browser for the DS that works pretty well, although it is really, really, slow.

    WiFi Games: Clubhouse Games and Mario Kart DS.

    Advance Wars, Sonic Rush, and Elite Beat Agents are both enjoyable non-WiFi games.

    Advance Wars...for the love of God...this is a jewel of a game, that doesn't not get effort attention(its getting more, but it was on the GBA, GBC and even SNES in Japan)

    NSMB, Kirby SS, Mario Kart, Tetris

    Glad to see another Advance Wars fan. I've put so much time into this game and yet I still can't beat all the war room maps. It's a great pick-up-and-play game. The difficulty of some of the maps might be a little annoying for the lest committed gamers.

    The "Nintendo" Wars franchise dates back to the original Famicom (NES) in Japan (Famicom Wars). It will be celebrating it's 20th anniversary next year.

    Advance Wars DS 2 can't come soon enough. It has already been announced for Winter 2007 in Europe. I haven't heard anything for North America.

    For the original posters's benefit, here is metacritic's list of the Top-10 best DS games:

    1. Mario Kart DS [91]
    2. Advance Wars: Dual Strike [90]
    3. Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow [89]
    4. New Super Mario Bros. [89]
    5. Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan [88]
    6. Meteos [88]
    7. Elite Beat Agents [87]
    8. Planet Puzzle League [87]
    9. Kirby: Canvas Curse [86]
    10. Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time [86]

    I find the few mentions of Kirby Canvas Curse disturbing, everyone should own this game.

    I bought it, finished it and thought it while at first the drawing on screen was genius, by the time I had finished the game i was bored with it, and it couldnt mask what was otherwise a pretty bland game.

    My favourite 5 games that I've bought and played to death are (no particular order)

    Mario Kart DS
    Elite Beat Agents
    Picross
    New Super Mario Bros.
    Advance Wars: Dual Strike

    Right now I'm having some nostalgia fun with Theme Park and SimCity. Hotel Dusk was also very good if you like that sort of 'interactive book' feel. It's just got a very good story.

    Posted before but now I am hooked on Bomberman. First bought it and didn't play it for months. Bought a used copy and didn't have the instructions and had never played one before. Just beat it last night and it's the perfect game for me. Short levels that constantly change. Ability to save out after only a couple minutes for short sky train rides. Fun gameplay. Anyone play online?
