The Top Ten

1 Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story

It's a good game and will always be the best ever

Bowser's Inside Story and Partners in time are legends! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Oh, come on. A CALCULATOR is above this?! - Garythesnail

The story the characters catchy music and playing as Bowser is what a perfect mario game is

2 Super Mario 64 DS

I Do Not agree with you the original u only have Mario but in ds version u have luigi yoshi and wario by your side

You have to work a lot of things out with your brain, which is even challenging for an adult in this game... it's a long game, it lasts. The levels are difficult. My sort of game!

Honestly, this remake was even better than the original game. - TwillyFSniper

This is my favourite video game of all time! - ShaunFan04

3 New Super Mario Bros.

This is the best Mario game for ds, hands down

Seriously, this is the best. It brought back the old school gamestyle with the 2D platform and storyline. Add this to the most epic bosses, super awesome graphics, new levels and secrets, and this game has it all. Truly amazing.

I totes agree with u both

Okay, how come the best selling DS game isn't in the top ten

4 Mario Kart DS

Awesome Mario Kart! This is my 2nd favourite mario kart game - ShaunFan04

5 Mario Party DS

This game is really cool we all know it's like other Mario Party game's but the mario characters are tiny! They go on an adventure to stop bowser as the tiny people they are! The bosses are awesome and it's a cool way to show how you defeat them! I give this a 10 out if 10

6 Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time

Cool and good

I'm so happy this is at the top! Usually I see people saying this is the weakest in the Mario and Luigi series, but I strongly disagree, although everyone is entitled to their opinion. I loved the bosses, the music, the gameplay with the babies, the locations, the plot being darker and more thought out than other Mario games, and the characters! Overall, a really fun game, although it is kind of short.

Coming soon... Top 10 Reasons Why Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is Better Than Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

Examples: The Baby Mario Bros. , The Graphics, etc...

My favorite thing is the level up system!

7 Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again
8 Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis

Story: 7/10.
Gameplay: 7/10.
Graphics: 10/10.
Sound: 7/10 (everything else sounds fine, but Mini Peach's voices are examples of the worst voices in gaming history).
Music: 10/10.
Difficulty: 10+/10.
Creativity: 10/10.
Nostalgia level: 10/10.
Voice acting: 7/10 (the only giant flaw is the Mini Peach toys' voices).
Humor level: 9/10.
Controls: 10/10.
Character sprites: 9/10.

This game gets an 8/10 score.

Stop saying "all time". The ds lasted from 2004 to 2011 so it hasn't been around for all time.

I remember when I was playing this game when I was a little girl.

This was my first mario game, it was so fun. - Super64Mario

9 Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem

This is the best game in the Mario vs DK series

10 Mario Calculator

This is the best game ever, the division sign is my favorite character because he divides stuff lol


The Contenders

11 Mario Hoops 3-on-3
12 Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games

How could this possibly be any good... I played the Wii version and it was pure misery. - TwillyFSniper

Apart from the anti-feminism, I would recommend this game, especially for a M&SatOG game.

Fantasic. I loved the mix and the storyline is great. Probaly the best mario game on the DS, but the fact that its equally as much about Sonic is a let down.

13 Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games

This is on the Wii dumbhead who put this here!

Really? Ok! Whoever Put This Game Here Is Obviously Running Out Of Ideas.

It Came out During The Dark Age Of sonic(Sonic 06 Aftermath)

14 Yoshi's Island

A remake of a classic game forever in our mind

15 Super Smash Bros.

This too is on the 3DS dumbhead who put this here!

Higher please? - TwillyFSniper

16 Mario Clock

One of my absolute favorite ma-ree-oh games! Fun and Educational!

17 Mario and Luigi Dream Team

This is pretty good, BUT IT'S ON THE 3DS!

This is on the 3DS dumbhead who put this here!
