What's the DS games you liked the least out of the ones you've played? Borrowed, Bought, or whatever, just list them here. I'll start:

1. Retro Atari Collection - yuck! What few games that aged well did not play well on the DS, and the remixes just sucked.
2. Magical Starsign - Just a really, really boring game. Very pretty, but very dull and uninspired with poor pacing and a lackluster story.
3. Professor Layton and the Curious Village - REALLY not my game.
4. Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis - Tried really hard to like it, but I just couldn't get into it.
5. The World Ends With You - I'm too stubborn to put it on easy mode. I feel like I'm missing half the game, and I am NOT replaying an RPG.

Dishonorable Mention:

Dragon Quest Monsters Joker - I just can't get myself to play it.
Yoshi Touch 'n' Go - I spent how much on a minigame?!

For those reading my list, there's a reason I said "least favorite" instead of "worst." ;) With that in mind, what's your list?

Well there are alot of DS games that are not good:

Mario & Sonic at the Olimpic Winter games --> probably the ost boring game I have played on the DS
Call of Duty: Word at War --> a DS FPS, it was jus not good

Of course if we were talking about least favourite DSiWare game my list will be about more then 40 games, good to know that is only DS games.

It's a tie between Scribblenauts and AW: Days of Ruin. Scribblenauts, while the concept was there, just didn't have enough creativity to warrant actually using perhaps 95+% of the words in the game, not to mention the controls. Advance Wars - Just not my cup of tea, and that's about it.

Exactly.

Counting:

  • Civilization Revolution - way too repetitive and tedious, imo

Not Counting:

  • Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride - if only for the fact that I got the pirated version (and I didn't realize it was pirated at the time), meaning that the chances of getting past the introductory ship are close to nil, meaning I'm stuck and cannot go anywhere :| I'm sure that the game is good, it's just a shame that I was cursed with a pirated copy; I feel sorry for all those who got victimized with the pirated version :(

Worst DS game I've played. Ice age 2 the meltdown. Nearly put me completely off the DS. Horrible controls didn't help.

Yoshi's Island DS -- coming from the awesomeness that was the SNES game, this was just crap IMO. it felt gimmicky as hell, shooting eggs with any kind of accuracy was impossible; i traded it back in quickly lol
Kirby's Canvas Curse -- it was too easy, felt like another cheap gimmick just to get people using the touchscreen. no thanks.
Scribblenauts -- thankfully a friend let me borrow it instead of me paying for it, because i was not impressed at all. :(

Um...what? I don't get what your problem is...If you're stuck and just want to beat the story then putting it on easy will help you out, the other difficulties are just for getting rare items and crap. As for replaying it...you NEVER have to do that. Once you beat the game you unlock an option where you can jump to any chapter of the game, instantly. It's one of the games best features that should really be in more RPGs (no more missables ever again!!).

1. Scribblenauts - Eh, was fun at first...but got boring very quickly...I'm not going to bother with the sequel.
2. The World Ends With You - Don't know why, but I just stopped playing the game. Was an interesting game though...

All I can think of at the moment.

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

I'm too stubborn to listen to logic.:P It's like manual mode in the Tales of Games: I feel like I should use it because it's there, but whenever I do use it, the game is frickin' impossible.:( I'm compelled to play TWEWY on The full mode controlling 5 things at once, but it's too hard, and I feel like I'm missing out whenever I don't because then it's doing randomly what I could be doing myself, theoretically whenever I wanted to. Now that I've used it, the game feels empty without it. Therefore I must play it on Full mode, even though it's too hard to progress.

See, this is not a problem logic can solve.:P

Wasn't a bad game, but...meh, it was ok. Not hard though, a lot easier compared to the original.

I may be wrong but I think he's talking about 100% each level, which was fairly difficult.

Just for you.

Oh, well I dunno then...don't think I ever completed it, I probably started after beating it but around that time I took it back.

I'd probably have to go with Nintendogs. It was my first DS game and as such had nothing to live up to, and I still got bored with it in a couple of days. I'm kind of surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet...

By the way, I actually like most of those games that have been listed, except I haven't played The World Ends With You.
