GamrConnect DS Recommendation Thread

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - GamrConnect DS Recommendation Thread

Hey there folks, and welcome to The DS Recommendation Thread. This is a thread made for the DS Community by the DS Community. Pretty much, it's a time saver for anyone looking for that next great DS game to play and enjoy. The users here are some of the most dedicated and sprited gamers I know, so of course the best way to find DS's best game was through the community's experiences and playtime.

Every week I'll be doing my best to go through and update this thread, whether that be adding new games or adding a new feature. What you can do is, well... recommend the games (I can't be scouring the internet for great DS games all the time)! If there's a game you don't see on the post that you love, give me a holler and I'll do my best to make sure it has the chance to be loved by someone else.

You'll see that there are no lists here or countdown's here. The DS Reccomendtion Thread doesn't think that a game's score has the final say on how much fan one can have with a game, so every game is placed alphabetically (Although I do believe that a score of 73 is a good cutoff for what games make it on this thread). Now, MetaCritic and GameRankings are still great resources, so we have them right below the games, ready to take you to that specific game's page.

Have fun, and happy gaming!

Recently I bought Radiant Historia (again) and DQM Joker 2. TWEWY isn't on the list? I haven't played it yet, but I've heard its very good.



 Been away for a bit, but sneaking back in.

Gaming on: PS4, PC, 3DS. Got a Switch! Mainly to play Smash

Heh, I knew TWEWY's absence would be noticed (Surprised Soriku hasn't sent his assassins after me yet!).

But rest assured it's coming! Along with a couple other games I forgot (there's a lot of games...)



And halfway done with banners...

*wipes sweat off brow*

Back to work!



Meteos was such a great puzzle game. Got it for $5 bucks 6 years ago on ebay :D.

Is this thread to point out the good DS games?



Shakarak on Nintendo Switch, Steam, and on Discord shakarak#2277. I brew beer and play games.
