This may sound negative but its really just another option. Have you looked into the PSP? I was about to buy a DS and then realized that the game selection is not that great right now and that the PSP may be $50 more but it is also more capable and has a lot of aftermarket support, it has a lot of good ps1 and ps2 game remakes on it and a ton of new rpg's. If you like RPG's then I strongly recommend PSP instead of the DS, but if you are set on the DS, then look into the following:

Advance Wars

Castlevania

Metroid

Pokemon

Resident Evil

Final Fantasy III

I would look into either of thepokemon games, Rune Factory, EBA, Jump ultimate stars(if you don't mind getting a guide because its japanese), and big brain/brain age. If you are willing to look past its roller coaster difficulty you might look into Lost Magic as well.

well, if you have arouter or a Wi-Fi stick (it costs 40 bucks but it's worth it!) definitely get Metroid Prime Hunters if you like FPS's. Also, Star Fox Command, New super Mario Bros., Pokemon Diamond, Mario Kart, or Final Fantasy 3. DO NOT get a PSP. Seriously, my friend has one, and in my opinion it's just lame. Most of the games that are good use this little analog nub thing that constantly lips away from my thumb, and it's only really good if you want ot have movies and music together in one thing.

Get the original Phoenix Wright game, it can be bought for $20 new.

A used one can get bought for even less.

I also recommend Ouendan 2, but you gotta import.

Like the 2nd person posting said Ouendan 1 and 2 are great but probably the smartest thing to do is get Elite beat Agents and Ouendan2. Import Ouendan2 like someone said or Pink Godzilla in Seattle (online) also carries it. Also mario kart for sure.
