i know... actually, if i dont own any RPG for DS, it means theres no good yet. lets w8 for FFCC and FFTA2, while they dont announce golden sun DS and fire emblem DS. i own children of mana, but it doesnt count, its almost an action game with RPG parts, not an action rpg

Final Fantasy III. There are still more coming out:

Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles Ring of Fates, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2, Dragon Quest IV, Dragon Quest V, Dragon Quest VI, Dragon Quest IX, Dragon Quest Monsters Joker, Archaic Sealed Heat and Tales of Innocence.

I hope all these games come out in the U.S. for an english version.

Mario and Luigi Partners in Time is a good RPG.

Right now it's between Mario & Luigi: Partners in time and Final Fantasy III. and don't be fooled with chocobos tale it isn't an RPG that we're use to. plus I agree with there should be a part 3 in Golden Sun.

Check my blog for screen shots of how GS3 could be.

Lunar Knights is an action RPG I have that is awsome but the RPG elements are not very deep. Its really just a hack 'n slash. Dragon Quest Monsters: Rocket Slime is supposed to be quite good but I don't have it.

FF3 and Pokemon are regarded as best, but you might also want to to try Etrian Odyssey or Rune Factory for something fun but different.

Pokemon and Mario and LuigiPartners in Time are great. FFIII got a bit tedious. The Castlevania games are good fun, but more platformer than rpg.

oh theres pokemon too... good RPG, i have it. FF3 is a remake, but theres ppl who likes remakes, mainly remakes from games he/she never played. im curious about the new tales, just heard of it, no images, no videos, no news...

From the games I've played, I'd have to say FFIII and I guess Pokemon right now. Thankfully there's a bunch more coming out in the next year as well.

advance wars dsMangoLlamas
sry to say, but advance wars is a strategy game, not an RPG. not all the games with numbers that r not combo mulipliers r RPGs... but fire emblem and FF tactics r RPGs 'cause theres Lv up, stats, etc... and thats why many ppl think zelda is an RPG and many think is an action game. i would say action dungeon crawler with a bit of RPG

I would recommend Pokemon. I think Diamond and Pearl are the best ones yet. As for FF3, it was my first FF game and I hated it. I just got too aggrivated trying to memorize the different kinds of magic and jobs and it got incredibly annoying and confusing. Can someone recommend a more simple RPG that won't make me pull my hair in confustion?

Definitely FF IV. But if you want a TON of extra stuff, do the GBA version, you can change your party

Just for the record, Nintendo did come out with a Golden Sun DS.

So no other reason to keep this board alive.

This thread is old by the way so back in 2007 where this thread was created,there wasn't no Golden Sun DS at the time.

Probably FFCC: Ring of Fates or FFIII, FFIV, or The World Ends With You.

Epic Bump... though its good to look back to the lack of RPGs on the DS in 2007... DS has had a stellar year last and this year with RPGs

SMT: Devil Survivor is awesome. Hopefully Strange Journey is even better though.
