What was the first thing you ever played on DS?
For me, it was Metroid Prime Hunters First Hunt. I didn't follow gaming news that much back in 2004, so I didn't even know what the DS was. When I saw a demo unit in GameStop one day with First Hunt, I was blown away by the amazing (lol) graphics, the touch screen, and the excellent controls (to this day, I still think D-Pad + resistive touch/stylus beats even mouse + keyboard for FPS controls).
What was your first experience with the DS? Did it leave a good or bad impression?

Saw an ad on a magazine, thought it looked interesting. It was, very.
You know the user is a troll, you know the topic is just to provoke people, and yet you still post on it...
You know.....I can't remember.
If I had to guess, I think it might have been True Swing Golf (such a fun game!) as the first game I ever actually played on the system. The second game I think was Legend of Zelda Phantom Hourglass. That game hooked me on the system.
I really love this system. It has become my all-time favorite system ever, console or handheld. Just great games and great technology. I also love that the games are on cart and that they are small. I enjoyed the GBA too, but these little game carts just pack so well.
I was really late to the DS...I think I got mine in late 2008 or early 2009. My first purchases were Emergency Disaster Rescue Squad, Final Fantasy 3, and Madden 2008. I believe I played FF 3 first. I played Madden for about 2 hours and it became my first trade-in. I still love Emergency Disaster to this day (my guiltiest of pleasures, it's not a great game by any stretch of the word)
But, (insert expletives here!), I wish I could go back to that time and re-do it. Not knowing too much about the DS or it's gaming library really jacked me up. I passed over so many good games ( a couple of Phoenix Wrights, Big Bang Mini, Dragon Quest 4 and 5, etc.) at very good prices. Over time, I've been able to pick up a few of the titles I missed, but there are a few I haven't been able to find again, and especially at those prices. I am not an online purchaser (Dark Spire being the only exception...) I always preferred the "eureka moments" when going to random game stores and finding something special. Last time I went to a store, I think they had maybe 8-10 DS games (not counting Barbie, Bratz, My Make-up tutor, or whetever else appeals to the 9 year old girls...)
Good Question, TC. It quickly brought me back to the large wall of unending DS games that I just passed over due to my ignorance.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow. Er, rather, that's the first game I personally played on my own DS.
My first experience definitely had to be First Hunt at some local Walmart or electronics department.
