No genre has flourished more on the Nintendo DS than the RPG. Turn-based, strategy, action…they’re all represented. With the DS’ lifespan coming to a close, I figured it was time to appreciate some of the best role playing experiences the system has to offer. Here, in no particular order, is a list of what I consider to be the best Nintendo DS RPGs.
While most top 10 lists would list the cream-of-the-crop games… I am going to list some realistically good games for the Nintendo DS. These are games that don’t necessarily need advanced controls to get by, nor would they require a lot of L and R button action. Since I find the DS isn’t as comfortable as a Game Boy Advance SP.
I think they will have a hard time maintaining these sales as the device is very expensive compared to other nintendo devices that hit the market in recent year.
While there are a lot of RPGs that didn’t make this list (Mario & Luigi, Final Fantasy Tactics A2, Soma Bringer, etc), it’s indicative of the titles I enjoyed the most. What Nintendo DS RPGs do you love?
