Best Nintendo DS RPGs

Love role playing games? Then this list is for you.

The Top TenXW

1The World Ends With You

I can't tell you how many friends I've gotten into this game. Although it has always been incredibly hard to find, it is well worth the search. Includes an incredible story, music, and art style. - Luvaddict77

2Disgaea DS

Yes, it's a port of the original that was made for the PS2, but is much improved from that and the PSP version as it includes the bonus Etna mode and allows you to recruit characters you couldn't in the PSP remake. - Luvaddict77

3Pokemon HeartGold

Brings back memories of my childhood. - Luvaddict77

4Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time

This brings back lots of memories. I remember crying in this several times...
Way too underrated though! - Catameow

5Luminous Arc
6The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass

Alright, so there's a lot of debate over whether or not Zelda is an RPG series or not. I'm going with yes for the sake of this list. Anyways, great game, decent story, and the level of difficulty is pretty good. Zelda games don't have much replay value though in my opinion, but you may want to pick it up later and play through it again. - Luvaddict77

7Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
8The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
9Pokemon Platinum

I'd recommend this over Diamond and Pearl because you can get both Dialga and Palkia. - Luvaddict77

10Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Very underrated, highly addictive game.

Deserves to be on the top ten list!

The Contenders

11Kingdom Hearts Re:coded
12Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time
13Final Fantasy III
14Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

Love this game. Hard to find but worth it.

15Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

My childhood.. It took me from age of 6 to 8 to actually get through the game. By far the most enjoyable game, even more than kingdom hearts. - Zakar

16Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
