Most Addictive Nintendo DS Games

A list of addictive games for the popular, amazing, fun, and awesome handheld from Nintendo, the DS, these are the games you can't stop playing

The Top Ten

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations Phoenix  Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations Product Image

I might be slightly biased because this is my favorite video game series of all time and would play Ace Attorney until the end of time, but the writing is brilliant, the music is fabulous, the characters are memorable and you feel like you actually know them since you watch them grow from square one as they evolve. While it isn't anything like real-life court as it would be an incredibly boring game otherwise, it's worth playing/reading for the story and characters themselves.

This series is always the best

Nothing Beats Phoenix wright..
The best I've ever played..
The twist in the story never misses to leave me thrilled. Goosebumps Guaranteed..

Want to be a lawyer or attorney.. here's your practice... OBEJECTION!

Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars Product Image

People thought the ds wasn't a good system for a Grand Theft Auto game. They thought wrong this game is awesome! It has a good story. It uses the touch screen very well. Limitless fun!

It's super fun to cause mayhem

Animal Crossing: Wild World Animal Crossing: Wild World Product Image


I haven't actually played wild world but new leaf was very addictive so I'm assuming wild world was too

Absolutely charming, creative, unique and has such a happy atmosphere that helps you get away from the negativity of the real World. The possibilities are endless, the personalities are so fun, and the exploration and freedom is so appealing on it. Its more of a game that you relax to as it's so soothing to play. It's a game that you can just pop in and see how things are doing and whats happening.

I grew up with the game and got addicted. I haven't been on it in years, but now I've played on it again, I'm more addicted than I ever was. Its super fun and creative. A definite must for Nintendo players.

The sequel to the one of the bestselling gamecube games. It's Animal Crossing: Wild World... have fun :)!

Transformers: The Game Autobots and Decepticons Transformers: The Game Autobots and Decepticons Product Image

THIS GAME+Nintendo DS= ENDLESS FUN! This game is fun with a variety of vehicles to scan for your own cuztomized character. Play as the autobots in autobot version and decepticon... each one follows a similiar story but each leads to a different path for your character... so roll out of your bed and get your hands on this game!


The Contenders

Frogger: Helmet Chaos Frogger: Helmet Chaos Product Image

You'd think a Frogger game that features the voice of Kevin from Ed, Edd n Eddy wouldn't be as obscure but no! It's easily one of those obscure Frogger games next to The Lost Wand, The Forgotten Relic and Toy Trials! Back on topic, it's still fairly decent for what it is!

This game is even more obscure than Elebits! And both games have second bosses that fly and attack the player with tornados! And their BOTH Konami games! What a coincidence!

Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes Product Image

One of the last Lego games to be on ds... this provides all the fun you need if you love Legos and batman. Good graphics for a ds game.

Super Mario 64 DS Super Mario 64 DS Product Image
Rhythm Heaven Rhythm Heaven Product Image

How the hell is this LOWER than Drawn to Life: Spongebob Edition?!

I remember getting a demo off the Wii for my DS Lite. I played the demo all the time. THE DEMO. - Dawscr

Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero Product Image

Not as great and original as the first game and you can argue that this is a discount Zelda or Pokemon but still pretty enjoyable! It sucks that Konami doesn't care about Elebits anymore!
