    25 dollars for these is way too much.

    *shrugs* I'd rather pay $20 for something fun than $50-60 for 95% of today's mediocrity.

    Whether it's actually fun is rather subjective. And frankly, these reek of an attempt at cashing in on the big freeware movement in Japan.

    Pretty much the same. I mean there are tons of these types of games (with the same level of quality as the commercial ones) for free, legally, on the Internet.

    I'm well aware of that. I've recommended several of them in this very forum in the past. There's also a surprising number of commercial-quality games that are absolutely free legally. I don't see (reasonable) people expecting all commercial games of that quality to be free though. Whether it's worth money isn't about the graphics or size of the game, it's about the level of enjoyment of the game experience itself. Whether it costs money is up to the developer, whether it's worth it or not.

    If the author of Torus Trooper asked me for $20, I'd pay it. I'd rather be playing that than Halo or Tekken.

    I'm not sure "freeware-like" is fair. They're certainly minimalist though, and that's fine with me.

    It's basically a line of simple games with new-ish concepts and very simple graphics for the DS.

    Is this the controller that has all the games built in? I saw that in the malls up in Ottawa, though I wouldn't buy something someone ripped off someone else like that.

    No. As mentioned above, this is a new line of minimalist GBA games from Nintendo.
