    I've being playing my DS quite a bit recently, mostly to keep me occupied while on journeys and was wondering besides the 4 games I currently own (Pokemon: Diamond, Mario Kart DS, Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia & New Super Mario Bros.) what else is there worth having?

    I aware the game libary is pretty large now but narrowing down worthy games to purchase is becoming hard, can anyone suggest their top 5 DS games or must have games for the DS?

    Thanks.

    Any of the Phoenix Wright games. Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume, Final Fantasy IV, Dragon Quest IV (and V), Disgaea, Chrono Trigger, Henry Hatsworth, Megaman ZX/ZX Advent, Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword, Professor Layton, Scurge: Hive (you can find this for next to nothing and it's really quite underrated).

    Super Princess Peach.

    Mock all you want, but its a great old-style platformer and allot more enjoyable then NSMB IMO.

    Hotel Dusk. I personally love Final Fantasy 12. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles was a lot more fun on DS than on Wii or Gamecube. And if this is the first Gameboy you get, try Zelda Minish Cap for GBA.

    For card games, chess, backgammon, etc type games Clubhouse games is ok. I spend a fair amount of time playing it before classes and to kill 5 min.

    But Pheonix Wright is awesome.

    Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume is great. I find it so hard at times.

    I want to add GTA: Chinatown Wars. I normally dislike the overhead view version of GTA, but this game kicks ass!!! 10/10

    You've all dishonored the house of TFW for forgetting Geometry Wars Galaxies.
