2New Super Mario Bros.

This is so much better then the 3 original ones! The wii one was crap! It tried too hard and this didn't try as hard and is still the best DS game ever!

New Super Mario Bros carries so many memories with it and I will never forget the first time I played it. It is so simple, to the point yet it requires skill and knowledge of the game. Unlike the original super Mario bros it takes hard work and more than five minutes to complete.

This is a brilliant game, it makes you want to keep playing it to complete the game. There are plenty of unique levels. It was a tough decision between this game and Mario Kart, but this game has more 'playing time'. Overall a very exciting game.

Yes I love this game so much. Everyday I go on my Nintendo DS and play this game. Mario is the best. - Catacorn

3Mario & Luigi Bowser's Inside Story

Awesome! YOU GET TO PLAY AS Bowser! WHAT IS COOLER THAN THAT? Also the game is really good and brings back fawful as the main villain (A WINNER IS YOU! ) The final boss music is climatic and fitting, Also the bosses are hard (still on dark star) and it takes a lot of skill to defeat it, easily a winner. - Mewbosses

Seriously? 29?! For THIS game? You must be kidding! This is one of the best games I've ever played! How in the world can this be all the way down here?!


Perfect sequel to Partners in Time. - thunder850

A nice adventure Mario game - Jaewon

4The World Ends With You

It's obvious that not many people have played this game because that is the only excuse for this amazing game to be in 22nd place.

Nice gameplay with an entertaining story, and good soundtrack and the RPG element is unique. This game will bounce your holidays

The game is great a great story line, good characters, unexpected powers. Realli an amazing game!

5Super Mario 64 DS

Man... Just the fact that there is a port of the amazing original for the DS makes this far better than 80 percent of all DS games! One of my all time favorites.

This game has an huge story, and when you think, it's over, there's always an secret, that you haven't found...

I'm almost done with it. Just need to do the final battle. Its always fun revisiting the levels and redoing the stars

I like super Mario ds because it has adventures

6The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Phantom Hourglass is the first Zelda game I have ever completed. I find it quite entertaining. Great storyline, great gameplay. I prefer to Mario Kart (K-A-R-T not C-A-R-T) anyday of the week.

It's really fun and some puzzles and dungeons are really hard. - InsertNameHere

Hmm I've never even heard of mario cart ds before how can it be first?

This is one of the best games I have ever played on the ds

8Pokemon Black 2

By far, the best pokemon game ever. It has everything-- a good plot, new pokemons and it's amazing how they take you a stroll down memory lane.

This game has an amazing story. You should try playing it even if you're not a Pokemon fan. I'm sure it'll change your idea about Pokemon games.

This is a great addition to the POkemon series games. I played it and simply loved it. I have to say it's very addictive. Please vote for it!

So much better than Pokemon black1 - Jaewon

9Pokemon Diamond

The Best D. s game there is! Very fun to play and a great addition to the Pokemon series.

OMG! These games are so freaking amazing! It was so unique and I finished them in 2 days! Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

Pokemon diamond is the fundamental game for anyone who owns a DS, this masterpiece provides hours of gameplay and entertainment, easily no. 1.

This was my first Pokemon game and it was so good! - Jaewon

10Kirby Super Star Ultra

One of the greatest games to grace Nintendo's library remastered to perfection; yet it's at 49. I am shaking my head seeing this placed under games like Super Princess Peach. - surgeonsanic

48?! This is an improvement on Kirby's flagship game! Only 48th? Well, we all have different strokes.. - Garythesnail

12Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time

Can't believe it wasn't in this list! Partners in Time is an amazing underrated game, and I love it! Most people hate how you need to BUY the bros. items, however, I like it! I also love the storyline! It's a great game!

This game is always better than crappy old M&L: BIS. This is the best Mario RPG game ever tying with Super Paper Mario & Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven a Stars. There's nothing to hate about this game unless you are talking about not being good at this game & Princess a Daisy/Pauline not replacing Princess Peach, that cowardly princess who needs her overly feminine voice changed. This game is so awesome that it deserves to be top 1, not lame old Mario Kart DS.

Epic game! I've beaten it 3 or 4 times.

Good game overall. pretty funny too

This Pokemon game has both kanto and jhoto league. You can catch many Pokemon so it is fun! - Jaewon

14Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Third favorite Kingdom Hearts game. Beat it twice. highly recommended

It's kingdom hearts to go! No other words needed

Definitely one of the best sonic games out there, plus includes the debut of blaze the cat.

I like sonic dash because it's cool

I like sonic dash

This game has action, stratagey, and much more.

This game has adventers battles and much more please vote!

17Lego Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures
18Call of Duty: Black Ops
19Super Princess Peach

Pure innovation, though Super Scribblenauts was infinitely better than the problematic original version...

Love this game but not as much as I love Super ScribbleNauts
