I do a lot of traveling, so my handhelds have always been the game systems I inevitably end up spending the most of my time with. After much thought on what should be put on and where each game should be placed, I've assembled a list that I can sincerely say is made of the Nintendo DS's greatest games. This next statement may surprise you, but believe me when I say it surprises me even more.
#1: Mario Kart DS
Pokémon Black 2 and White 2
After the best Nintendo DS games you can still play? Even if the handheld console is a bit long in the tooth these days — with newer and fancier successors like the New Nintendo 3DS XL , Nintendo 2DS , or hybrid console Nintendo Switch — there are still plenty of reasons to give the lineup of original DS games a look. The first DS console launched in , and has gone through multiple iterations since, though there are still some classic DS games that hold up with the best of their newer cousins. The dual-screen design of the first DS has lasted an incredible amount of time, through the DS Lite, DSi, the 2DS, the 3DS and a bunch of XL releases in between, spawning some of the best games we've played — from the great entries in the Castelvania series to the outstanding entries in Pokemon. To give you a better idea of exactly what games you should be looking to pick up, we've put together this list of what we think are the best titles out there. And if you're after something more recent, we have a separate guide to the best 3DS games too. One of a handful of great strategy games on the Nintendo DS, Advance Wars: Dual Strike mixed smart rock-paper-scissors-esque combat with the brutal backdrop og an on-going war.

Sure why not. As for the topic, I'd definitely take the "maybe" off of Advance Wars, man. I love it, and before the originals I wasn't really keen on turn-based strategies. If you're having your doubts, take it from me -- it's a heck of a lot more engaging than it seems. And the one which I'll also get: Hotel Dusk. It's all investigating, but since I haven't played Hotel Dusk yet, I can only narrow my stories to the Phoenix Wright series. It's basically about a defense attorney who tries to get his clients a not guilty verdict. Its games contain very good story lines as well as original features.
