The Top Ten

1 The World Ends With You 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 Disgaea DS 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

3 Pokemon HeartGold Pokemon HeartGold

Brings back memories of my childhood. - Luvaddict77

4 Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time

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

5 Luminous Arc Luminous Arc
6 The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass 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 Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days
8 The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks
9 Pokemon Platinum Pokemon Platinum

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

10 Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift

Very underrated, highly addictive game.

Deserves to be on the top ten list!

The Contenders

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

Love this game. Hard to find but worth it.

15 Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story 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 Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
