Dual Strike, Animal Crossing, Mario Kart, and Dawn of Sorrow were some of the best games on the system IMO.

Best Fire Emblem game ever, best Animal Crossing, best 2D Zelda ever, and Poke'mon finally went 3D. Oh, and Etrian Odysey 4 is one of the best RPGs I've ever played. 

Damn... I’m not even going to try disagreeing with this post. For me, the highlight of DS was the Phoenix Wright trilogy, it began in 05, but that was also the year of Mario Kart AND Animal Crossing. Can you beat that?

Mario Kart 7 was clearly the highlight game for 3DS, but ALSO Animal Crossing, AND an Ace Attorney game.

 

Despite these being highlight years, there was enough strong stuff during the other years too. For me DS was strong right until the month before the 3DS launch, I was still buying stuff for it. I felt 3DS began strong and kind of fell apart in the later years... that’s just me. I haven’t bought a thing for it since before the Switch launched.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
