    I've been wondering if buying a Nintendo DS is worth it, I wasn't attracted to the concept of touch-screens since I thought It would take the fun outta games.
    but now that I have seen Games like Brain Age (I think that's its name) I'm considering it. But I stilla hate it for slowly causing the extintion of the gameboy.

    I have some extra cash, so give a reason (games, features, etc.) to buy a DS, also recomend me a couple games.

    So, the game that made you consider getting a DS is Brain Age? If so, then there's a game called Picross that should interest you. Picross is friggin awesome. And it's only $20.

    Other games I like are:
    Tetris (every handheld needs a Tetris game)
    Meteos (I actual would recomend the first one, not the Disney one)
    Phonenix Wright games
    Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin and Dawn of Sorrow
    New Super Mario Bros.
    Pokemon: Pearl
    Pokemon: Diamond
    Final Fantasy III

    and games that I'm looking forward to it in the future:
    Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
    Final Fantasy IV

    Why you should get a DS?

    Cause DS>PSP. It's simple as that!

    Great selection of games. Many with awesome multiplayer options. Wireless communication, up to 10 hours of constant gameplay, pictochat is fun to mess around with.

    And you won't need to upgrade firmware! No risk of bricking the console!

    Wow. Somebody forgot to take their antidepressants today.

    Seriously, if you want advice on the DS: get one. It's not "killing" the GameBoy. It's the next incarnation (although Nintendo is making a very slow transition, and I don't think anybody can really complain about that) of Nintendo's portable gaming brilliance.

    Game suggestions that haven't been made yet:
    Kirby: Squeak Squad
    Gunpey
    Wario: Master of Disguise
    Bubble Bobble Revolution

    Well you can unbrick PSPs now with the Pandora battery.

    But err as for good things about DS the group play feature is great. Its great to just to have a race with all your buddies on Mario Kart and err Pokemon wifi is awesome(got addicted to trading during the summer lol) And umm can't wait till Dragon Quest 9 is released and brought ovr to North America, it looks like a great RPG so far. Also you never know if they'll make a Golden Sun for the DS :)  Yeah and Brain Age is pretty fun, I just got Brain Age 2 I hope its just as good as the first one.

    Brain Age
    Brain Age 2
    Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney
    Phoenix Wright Justice For All
    Castlevania series
    Cooking Mama
    Advance Wars
    Clubhouse games

    There are so many great games out for the DS. It is awesome. I gotta take a break from it sometime and play my neglected PSP. But Brain Age 1 + 2 have me hooked with Sudoku.. and now NY Times Crosswords has me hooked too.

    My reason for you to get a DS is simple: That's where nearly all of the good portable games are going. Not all of them rely on the stylus much, and some that do have handled it very well. There's plenty of conventional style gaming to be had on the platform.

    the ds is great because pretty much no matter what type of game you like you can find your fix on the ds. and i'll second the flash cart. i don't even use it for roms, there's some pretty sweet homebrew on it. full ports of old games like lemmings, doom, descent. nes ds for nes games. lots of good stuff.
