@zez FFIV is a pretty great game, there are much better DS RPGs, but FFIV is still one of the best.
However it's worth considering looking into the GBA version, which has some better bonus content, (it also plays more quickly since it's 2D). Also it's supposed to be coming to the VC sometime so waiting for that is also an option.

Theyre both gonna be on budget price, so what should I get: The World Ends With You for $15, or Henry Hatsworth for $10?

I'd get both, but TWEWY is much better like everyone has said.
Henry is still a great game though, the gameplay is meshed together well, the presentation is quirky and hilarious (Banjo-speak, but better!!). The only fault I have with it is that levels begin to get really long as you progress.

I recommend:

Scribblenaughts: One of the best DS games of 2009! Its a must buy, imo, if you have a DS.

Nostalgia: If you like turn-based rpgs, I think you'll like this one. Its very unique in that it uses real world locations in a fantasy setting. Its so cool to visit London, Cario, India, Africa, and more in this game. The turn-based battles, in dungeons and via airships, are really good. Fun game.

Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes: An rpg with a twist: the battle system is very similar to a puzzle game. Very unique game. The developer, Cappy, is one to watch.

Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks: Even better than Phantom Hourglass imo. A really fun Zelda game.

Its really been a great year for the DS!

If you haven't played Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes then I highly recommend that you play it. It really is an excellent game.

Everyone who has ever liked a puzzle game and can live without fancy branching storylines or building a super-character has to try this. The attention to gameplay design quality is so much more hardcore than all other DS games and makes for a really fun experience.

I'm looking for reccomendations on classic adventure-style/point and click-style games, like Broken Sword or Trace Memory. I was thinking about the DS version of Myst, but every single review i've read on the version has torn it to shreds (and that one i'd probably rather just play on PC anyway). I know there's a fair amount of these style games out there, but it's rare that i see too many write-ups on them, and though i'm not tremendously averse to "buying blind", i'd rather get some feedback.

For reference: i have Trace Memory, and am picking up Broken Sword next time i see it. And I recently played through Chronicles of Mystery (much more of a "hidden object" game) which was okay, if underwhelming. I am curious about the Cate West game(s), anyone play them?

Phoenix Wright is a point and click, although it's more of an awesome drama than an adventure. It's awesome though.

Heh, i considered the Phoenix games, but since i actually am an attorney in real life, they're not that appealing to me. =)

Agree on those choices, because, well, they're the only ones on your list I have. Knights in the Nightmare essential, though? Really?

Have all of those and I agree completely. You forgot Zelda Spirit Tracks though. I've also been looking for ChronoTrigger but nobody by me has it new or used...

I actually got a copy at my local Best Buy for $20 last week. Haven't gotten around to playing it yet, though.

Exactly.

Heh, no not really, she'll probably like them. I'm just one of those people who can't really watch lawyer shows or movies, because the dramatic licenses they take with the way the law actually works tend to take me out of the moment. =)

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I didn't want to make a new one. I can't decide between HG/SS and WarioWare D.I.Y. Part of the reason is the fact that both have limited time things going on... the contest for WarioWare, and the events for HG/SS. What would you all suggest?
EDIT: Wow, for the first time I used meta critic, and even there, they had almost the exact same scores! Strangely, HG got a higher user score than SS. :P

@110percentful: WarioWare D.I.Y. is awesome. the pre-made character microgames are good, and making your own microgames is a blast. Especially when you make multiple microgames and then put them in the game blender. Very easy to understand creator once you go through the tutorials. Get that! (but if you're a die-hard pokemon fan I suggest HG/SS but I don't have it yet)

go to www.virtualhamgames.com for great original independent games, a help service, and reviews for our games.

That's the thing... I used to be a diehard Warioware fan, but I was also a diehard pokemon fan. :P
I've never really had to think this much about buying a game. IT'S SO STRESSFUL!
