I really love RPGs but I don't have too many for the DS.  WHat would you guys consider to be the 10 best.  I know there aren't too many, so 10 might not be possible, but please try!  :D
#2 Posted by ladyandrade (22 posts) -

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is the best, imo. It's very funny and really cute, and I don't normally go for "cute" stuff.

FF III is good, but the story is seriously lacking. I think the Final Fantasy GBA games are better. I paid full price ($40) for it and I wish I had waited for a sale.

 I want to try Lunar Knights next, I've heard good things about it.

1-10.) Pokemon

#4 Posted by Egei (309 posts) -

So far, from what I've played, the best are:

1. Pokemon Diamond/Pearl

2. Lunar Knights (some people may say its not an RPG, but you can level up and get new weapons/abilities and armor and stuff, so I say that it is)

3. Final Fantasy III

4. Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales

5. Mario and Luigi: Partners In Time

6. Contact

7. Lost Magic

(In that order)

Thats all that I've played so far, but they're all different kinds of RPGs so pick whatever kind that you like out of that group, and you're sure to have a great time playing through them!

#18 Posted by Pikminmaniac (9062 posts) -

All I know is that Pokemon Pearl/Diamond, Dragon Quest V (one of the best RPGs ever), Dragon Quest IV, and Mario & Luigi Partners in Time are all premium games.

I boycott the Final Fantasy series because it came into existance by completely ripping off Dragon Quest.

#20 Posted by FallofAthens (2026 posts) -

I didn't relize this thread was old until I saw a comment saying, "the upcoming FFXII: Revent Wings." :P

But I suppose to answer the question it would be as so for me:

1. The World Ends with You

2. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2

3. Dragon Quest IV

4. Master of the Monster Lair

5. Digimon Dawn/Dusk

6. Front Mission

7. Puzzle Quest

Not really in any particular order except for maybe TWEWY.

How the hell did you come up with this? have you played Final Fantasy 1? Have you played Dragon Quest 1? How can you say that one ripped off the other they're completely different. Differences: Different battle system Different story Different ways to acquire magic Similarities: overhead map view random monster battles Now if you can come up with similarities, be my guest, but the two things I could think of that they shared are so broad as to encompass MANY rpg's. I'm not a fanboy and if someone said that DQ ripped off FF I would make the same argument.

I don't have many DS RPGs, but I just ordered about 4 of them from Amazon, so I'm starting to build up my collection a bit. Of the ones I have played though, Devil Survivor is the best. Here's my list in no order except for Devil Survivor.

  • SMT: Devil Survivor
  • Pokemon Diamond/Platinum
  • FFIV
  • FFIII
  • Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier (love the battle system)
  • FFTA2
  • The Dark Spire (haven't played much, but it requires a LOT of patience and dilligence)

Just ordered: Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Mario and Luigi: BIS, TWEWY, Knights in the Nightmare. Still want to get my hands on Chrono Trigger and perhaps the two Dragon Quest games.

#45 Posted by Laharl5 (405 posts) -

1.) A tie between KH 358/2 days and TWEWY

2.) FF4

3.) Disgaea DS

4.) Chrono Trigger DS

5.) FF3

#46 Posted by Next-Gen-Tec (4623 posts) -
Also, Dragon Quest 5. Doesn't get mentioned enough and it's a fantastic game.
#47 Posted by Scorpio196 (87 posts) -

1. TWEWY

2. KH358/2 Days

3. Mario & Luigi: BIS

4. FF4

5. Chrono Trigger

6. Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier

7. Pokemon Platinum

8. FF3

9. Phantasy Star 0 (Japanese Version)

10. FF: Chocobo Tales

-----------------------------------------------

However, in my opinion, the best ever RPGs I've played are the Golden Sun series. BEST GAMES EVER!!!!

Looking forward to:

Golden Sun 2

Infinite Space

Soul Silver

Sands of Destruction

Nostalgia

Pokemon Dungeon: Explorers of the Sky
