IGN has a list of top 25 games they think that are cream of the corp. What do you guys think, do you think IGN got this list right?

The point that there are about 5 castlevaina games on the list along with the pokemon series shows how you shouldn't take IGN seriously.

WAT!

True they should just grouped all the Castlevania games into one like Pokemon games.

All top 25 lists are completely subjective, so, no - they didnt get it right.

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

I call complete BS on Partners in Time being so high, while Bowser's Inside Story, an actually interesting game, is nowhere to be seen.

Y U NO PUT TWEWY AND 999 HIGHER!?
Seriously, all this list does is show how massive the DS library is. The system needs at least a top 50.

Top 50 would be helpful but top 100 would be better if you ask me. :-)

Nope, because somehow Professor Layton and the Last Spector makes it #6, and The Unwound Future makes it nowhere on this list.

#1 is a total copout, but other than that, this wasn't anymore rage inducing than any other top XX list of games.

On Second thought, at least it isn't as bad as Kotaku's list. Sure, it's onlt 12 games, but Ghost Trick and Pokemon Black/White are the only ones I felt deserved to even be mentioned.

As pleased as I am to see someone else who holds those games in high regards, I'm afraid we are in a minority. :(

No Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword :(

A little surprised Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon made the list. It's a great game for sure, but it didn't feel extra exceptional to me.

Currently Playing:

Godzilla: Smash 3 (AND)
Summoners War: Sky Arena (AND)
Salvo Saga (AND)

I've braved the ads and drivel to condense that list back down to one page's worth of content (as it should've been from the outset). Here's that list, from top-ranked to bottom-ranked:

Pokemon: the DS generations
Mario Kart DS
M&L: Partners in Time
Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow
New Super Mario Bros.
Professor Layton and the Last Specter
The World Ends with You
Animal Crossing: Wild World
Elite Beat Agents
GTA: Chinatown Wars
Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia
Pokemon Conquest
Professor Layton and the Curious Village
Advance Wars: Dual Strike
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
Tetris DS
LoZ: Spirit Tracks
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
999
Picross DS
DQIX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
Kirby: Mass Attack
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin
Rhythm Heaven
Super Scribblenauts

the fact that Radiant Historia is nowhere near this list should be indication enough that it shouldn't be taken seriously.

My main problem with this list is that there are so many fantastic games out for the ds that a top 25 doesn't do it justice - a top 50 or even 100 would be far better.

Particularly so when multiple games from the same series are included - there is a huge variety of DS genres that just aren't represented in this list. I haven't played enough DS games to get up in arms about IGN's particular choices.

(Also, as I'm looking to finish up my DS library, I'm on the lookout for good games I might have missed - a top 10 or 25 list inevitably comes up with games that I already own! The only games listed here I don't have are Picross DS (I've god Picross 3d instead), Pokemon Conquest (still need to grab it) and Animal Crossing (I've got the Wii version, so figured the DS version isn't necessary).

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

We still care about IGN's "Best Of" lists after they said Mixed Messages was DS multiplayer GotY for 2009?

Exactly.

Actually I find it hard to make a top 10 list of DS games, let alone a top 25. I can't say I've encountered many must have games. I'm already having a better time with the 3DS.

...in my pants.
