The only ones I can think of are the Castlevania games for the DS.

any other older games to start out with such as Final Fantasy III and IV which I'm planning on getting.

Yeah Mario and Luigi 2 I'm planning on getting. Not sure about Bowser's Inside Story though. I need to play Mario and Luigi 2 first before moving on to Bowser's Inside Story.

Also the games that I'm planning on getting

Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow

Kingdom Hearts 258/7 or whatever its called

Final Fantasy III

Final Fantasy IV

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2

Pokemon HeartGold

Pokemon White 1 or Black 1

Spectrobes - should I buy Spectrobes 1 and 2 or just Spectrobes 2? Does it make any difference?

New Super Mario Brothers - I know this came first before the Wii version. I hear that the DS's New Super Mario Brothers is easier or whatever

Grand Theft Auto Chinatown Wars- sometimes i swear this version is easier to find than the PSP version

whats that weird RPG game where you dig through dragon poop to find items? Isnt it called Blue Dragon or whatever?

I would say go ahead and skip FF3. Game is slow as hell (battles) and boring to boot. I haven't tried the re-release for PSP, but there is a reason no one talks about FF3 when discussing their favorite FF game.
