I just picked up one of the original, larger Gameboy DSs for $2 at a yard sale.
My kids will know which games they want, but I'm all grown up and would like to try out some DS games aimed at adults. My preferred genre is RPGs; right know I'm playing Skyrim on the PS3 and doing old school PS1 with FFVII and Xenogears. I'm not into the Mario or side scrolling things with cartoon characters.
I prefer games that have more of a 3D look to them, good stories, good characters. It's really hard to go through all the reviews here to find one, so I'm hoping you'll have DS-specific recommendations. Even action or sports games that have a more adult orientation would be interesting to consider. Thanks for your advice.
Well, I'm not sure if the games I will recommend you are exactly what you're looking for, but I don't see why not as these games can also be enjoyed by young kids and adults alike, but here goes:
Radiant Historia: Great RPG that involves travelling through time to uncover more stuff behind the plot and use it to progress through your adventure.
999: This game is rated M, it's a visual Novel kind of game, but it's really well done, and possibly one of the best DS games ever made.
Phoenix Wright: Awesome game. Actually, all 3 are awesome. Half the game involves investigating crime scenes. The other half involves finding contradictions in court and ultimately help your client win the case. If you plan on playing this play them in order.
Hotel Dusk Room 215: Another great Visual Novel game
Professor Layton: Awesome puzzle game that gets you to think, or so I've heard, but I haven't played it yet
Contra 4: Good side scrolling shootem ups! One of the manliest adventure you will ever have.
The other members'll recommend you even more games worth buying. --- Currently playing: Kingdom Hearts 3D and Tales of Graces F
- Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey - Infinite Space - Castlevania series - Radiant Historia (kind of average but as well put it here)
And that's all I got.. There's a more stuff too if you're willing to look past kiddie anime graphics. such as Devil Survivor 1 & 2, Advance Wars Days of Ruin and the Etrian Odyssey series for example. --- PSN - Expa0 - The official Doppelganger of SMT IV boards -
