Best Nintendo DS RPGs

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

The Top Ten

1 The 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

2 Pokemon HeartGold

Brings back memories of my childhood. - Luvaddict77

3 Disgaea 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

By far my favorite game

4 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time

Again just the story blows these other games out of the water. The gameplay is also great - Frouze

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

5 Luminous Arc
6 The 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

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

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

10 Kingdom Hearts Re:coded

The Contenders

11 Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Very underrated, highly addictive game.

Deserves to be on the top ten list!

12 Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

Love this game. Hard to find but worth it.

13 Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time
14 Final Fantasy III
15 Mario & 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

16 Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
