Best Nintendo DS RPGs

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

The Top Ten

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

Pokemon HeartGold

Brings back memories of my childhood. - Luvaddict77

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

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

Luminous Arc
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

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
Phantasy Star 0
Heroes of Mana
Lunar Knights: Vampire Hunters

The Contenders

The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
Magical Starsign
Rondo of Swords
Pokemon Platinum

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

Steal Princess
Nostalgia
Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Very underrated, highly addictive game.

Deserves to be on the top ten list!

Avalon Code
Kingdom Hearts Re:coded
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon

Love this game. Hard to find but worth it.

Sands of Destruction
Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time
Final Fantasy III
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

Radiant Historia

Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier
Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
