@liavcol I would suggest any of the following:

Radiant Historia
999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney (they're all great, but you'll get the most out of the series if you play them in order)
Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
Okamiden
Hotel Dusk: Room 215

Thank you all but I think I'll try Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days because I saw it and it looks great.

And my recommendations:
-New Super Mario Bros.
-Kirby Squeak Squad
-Prince of Persia the Fallen King
-Kirby Mass Attack
-Away Shuffle Dungeon

@liavcol

Unfortunately, you're going to be pretty confused in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days if you haven't played Kingdom Hearts 2 and Chain of Memories yet. Out of all the ones mentioned so far, that's the one I recommend the least. Ghost Trick may be your best bet.

Has anyone played Super Robot Taisen L? I'm thinking about grabbing it, but I don't understand Japanese. Would it still be playable?

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

I searched to buy one of the recommended games you gave me but then I saw on VGP.ca the game Castlevania Portrait of Ruins in 19.99 instead of 49.99 so I bought that one already... Hope it'll come fast!

How did I miss this? Super Robot Wars L is pretty good. Has it gone down in price now? I'm just wondering because before it was going for $80. Anyways, it's playable so long as you're familiar with previous games in the series (preferably Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 1 & 2) and you're willing to experiment. There's also a guide you can use, but I don't think it's complete: http://akurasu.net/wiki/Super_Robot_Wars/L - it does not cover the story, for instance, so you may be a bit lost as to what to do at times. Usually you can get by simply killing as many enemies as possible while keeping your guys alive, though, so don't worry too much about it.

EDIT: oh wait, here's a story guide you can use: http://www.gamefaqs.com/ds/605429-super-robot-taisen-l/faqs/6...

To be honest i'm kinda switching to primarily 3DS but i still have recomendations.
15: Super Scribblenauts (don't get the original)
14: Kirby Superstar Ultra (lots of content)
13: Wario Ware DIY (you can make your own games, nuff said)
12: Mario and Luigi Bowser's Inside Story (best action RPG on the DS)
11: The Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass ( if you have a 3DS get Ocarina of Time instead)
10: Mario Party DS (best Mario Party game in a long time)
9: Mario Kart DS (if you have a 3DS get Mario Kart 7)
8: Rhythm Heaven (awesome game even if you don't like music)
7: Kirby Mass Attack (best Kirby game on the platform)
6: Super Mario 64 DS (if you have a 3DS get Super Mario 3D Land)
5: Club House Games (this has got to be the most overlooked game on the DS)
4: Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days (if you have a 3DS wait for Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance)
3: New Super Mario Bros. (if you have a 3DS wait for the new 2D Mario platforming game coming soon)
2: Animal Crossing Wild World (if you have 3DS, wait for the new Animal Crossing 3D)
1: Pokemon Black and White (if you have a 3DS, YOU STILL NEED TO HAVE THIS GAME)

Sorry for all of the "if you have a 3DS" things, but it's true.

Cool, thanks for the links. Play Asia was selling it for $30, so I decided to grab it. Hopefully with some guides I'll be able to figure out what to do. One day, if I get the time, I'd like to learn enough Japanese to at least be competent with games - I've bought a few Japanese ones that I'd like to be able to get the full experience from!

EDIT: Also, does anyone have any opinions on Steal Princess? I've heard mixed reviews on it, and am wondering whether or not it's worth a purchase.

I looooooooove Mario Kart DS, although quite expensive, but its really fun.

Do you truly look at things positively? For example, do you look at the glass like it's always full? (Half water, half air.) Or when someone "lets the cat out of the bag," do you think it's because the person felt sorry for the cat stuck in the bag? There is a positive side to almost everything.

I'm looking for a DS long game (aka JRPG) to play this summer. The problem is I've played the vast majority RPG's (such as FF III, FFIV, FF Tactics A2, The World Ends With You, Dragon Quests, Suikoden, Kingdom Hearts, etc.) and I also try to find something innovative.

I'm doubting between:

  • Pokemon Black and White: being the last Pokémon I've played, Diamond and the last entry I realy love, Crystal, I've read Black and White are arguably the best Pokémon yet so I would give them an opportunity (in addition, B&W2 will come soon so I'll be able to understand the story).
  • Inazuma Eleven 2: even if I'm not a fan of the cartoons, I think it's quite innovative and I would give it a try.
  • SMT: Strange Journey: I'm a Persona lover and I'm not afraid of the difficulty. The problem is to find i at a reasonable price :S
  • Golden Sun: I've played the second one when I was little and I liked it but the reviews I've read of the DS version are mixed. Don't know if it's good enough to give it a try.
  • Another you propose: please, give me your recommendations!

I reject the proposal of Okamiden, SMT: DS and SMT:DS2 (I'm planning to get a 3DS so I would buy them then), Dragon Quest Monsters (I tried the first one and I didn't like it ), and text adventures such as Phoenix Wright (I've played them ). Please, take in consideration I'm european.

Thank you so much in advance!!

Currently playing: Persona 4 Golden (Vita), Persona (PSP), Disgaea 3 (Vita), Yumi's Odd Odyssey (3DS), Devil Survivor Overclocked (3DS).

I think we can eliminate Golden Sun right off the bat, since it brings very little new to the table. SMT: Strange Journey isn't exactly innovative, and it's not really like the Persona games. It is, however, one of the better first Person Dungeon crawlers I've played, which you don't seem to have played, so at the very least it would be something different for you. Then there's Solatorobo, which despite its low difficulty, is very different and innovative, which seems to be something you're looking for.

Best Buy also has it pre-owned online with free shipping for $24.99. While I haven't ordered online from Best Buy before, they are usually complete when I see them in stores. Just something to keep in mind. I don't know if those other ones are complete, but I'm assuming you can go to the stores themselves and find out? For better or for worse, that's actually not a bad price for a Pokemon game.

Are any of the Digimon games worth it? I'm really starting to get back into the series. If all of them are decent which is the most fun?

Digimon World Dawn/Dusk are your best shots. They're tough to find, though. Digimon World DS is also decent.
