    Hello guys,

    I have a DS which I usually dig out for holidays. My GF also has one.

    Basically I'm looking for suggestions for games. Not really been keeping my eye on the market of late.

    What's good?

    We have the first Professor Layton (I'm gonna play this one on holiday I think)
    Hotel dusk
    Mario Kart
    Super mario bros
    Yoshi
    Zelda
    42 All time classics
    FF 3
    and a bunch of others that I can't remember off the top of my head.

    Thanks

    Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. Classic and so much play-time it's unreal.

    Which version of Pokemon do you recommend? There are loads of different ones.

    I'll check out Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow as well.

    If your holiday involves pools or beaches or bars. Screw the games :b

    If you really must get some new games, I would say Pokémon as well even though I don't like the game. I know just from other friends that they could play it for weeks. Depends on your patience though I guess seeing how its the same as Final Fantasy; every fight is basically the same.

    Lol. Yes the holiday includes all those things. The games are for flights, transfers and chilling on the balcony recovering from hangovers :)

    Two weeks in Bitez, Turkey. Can't wait.

    The Guitar Hero DS games are fun, if a little prone to making your arm cramp.
    Another vote for Advance Wars!
    TrackMania DS is a good game too.

    Disgaea DS (its a little grindy, but great game, with a good sense of humour)

    Advance Wars Dual Strike

    one of the newer pokemon games (heargold/soulsilver/platinum)

    Mortal Kombat (funny multiplayer)

    Contra (co-op goodness, but crazy-hard)

    Having just returned from Lanzarote i can confirm Pokemon is good for round the pool! For the DS you will be wanting Emerald as the earliest incarnation or Platinum as a more recent.

    Or you could get Fire Red or Leaf Green if you wanted to play enhanced versions of the originals.
