Well, people already recommended excellent games, but im going to recommend a game from visual novels, which is basically a book, but that is excellent:999(For DS) and Virtues Last Reward(for 3DS).Both from the same franchise, being 999 the first game, and Virtue the second, they are superb!Recommended to anyone.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I'l recommend stuff that I don't see in others list.

DS

Ace Attorney games.
Okamiden
Kirby games
Hotel Dusk Room 215
Trace Memory
Advance Wars games.

3DS

Code Name STEAM

Some digital ones: 

Pushmo series, Sakura Samurai, Box Boy!, ect.

I see others have beat me to the 3DS games



A bit off topic but why do the DS games still cost so much? I would think they'd be cheaper by now, but they are still awfully high in price.



The right stick on the N3DS XL is garbage. Go ahead and dismiss any dreams of using it for an fps of tps.

Fun fact: my autocorrect just turned "tps" into the word "God"

With that said, here are my picks:

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D
Super Mario 3D World
Advance Wars DS
Resident Evil Revelations
Mario Kart 7
Super Street Fighter 4
The Legend of Zelda: Link Between Worlds
Chrono Trigger
Pokemon Y
New Super Mario Bros 2

How could I forget Ghost Trick, I'l punish myself later.



Guys, how has no one mentioned any Etrian Odyessy games or Ace Attorney games? What about Persona Q? Codename S.T.E.A.M? Anyone? 

Edit: How the heck did I miss all those Etrian Oddyesy and Ace Attorney games? Anyway, Metroid Prime Hunters and Goldeneye 007 are good FPS games for the DS.
