    with mario kart. awesome fun.

    shhh but i also got my girlfriend one for her birthday next week, as i've had to practically wrestle her away from my one.

    so what are the best games? the pheonix wright attorney game looks fun. i've always wanted to shout OBJECTION! in a court of law.

    i'd also like to get one of the mario games, partners in time looks good and i never really liked mario 64, im a fan of the sidescrolling platformers. also the new resident evil looks good... 4 player zombie fun...

    so what are your reccomendations for good 2 player (or more) games that i can beat my girlfriend on?

    Sonic Rush is a good game, and alot of us here love us some Animal Crossing. If you want a Mario game they are comming out with New Super Mario Bros. supposed to be a new side scroller with some 3D elements. Haven't played RE yet, but some here have said it's not that great5, however I am a sucker for the original so I will probably get it.

    See if she likes Metroid Prime: Hunters.

    Also, in my experience girls always love Tetris. Always.

    Only games I have are animal crossing, mariokart, and sm 64 for it. But if you like the sidescrollers than castlevania is supposed to be really good as is the new super mario bros game coming out in a bit. Personally I plan on getting metroid next.

    Currently, no there's not any DS Mario games like Super Mario.
    However, you do realise you can get Super Mario World for the GBA, which the DS will play.

    depends on whats being played. Mario Kart drains the battery in a little over 3 hours, even faster with WiFi being used. I've gotten nearly 6 hours playing castlevania.

    If you like the multiplayer puzzle-ish games, Tetris, Meteos, and Zoo Keeper are all good fun

    I'd highly recomend Meteos and Trace Memory. They're on sale for $7 at Target right now.

    Castlevania, Mario 64, Metroid, Animal Crossing are all awsome.

    If you like Megaman there's Battle network5 and Megaman ZX is in the works.

    I'm ashamed that you don't own Metroid Prime: Hunters yet. There's no reason to take time to reply to my post, just go to the store, and buy it. It is truly the reason to own the system. I am proud that you have Mario Kart though. That would be reason #2.
