About This File

So I was pondering over my Nintendo DS collection, the lack of easily available media for it, and I realised that there was a lot of rubbish in that collection...
With that in mind, i scoured the interwebs for the top 100 (or so) games for this system to build an easily accessible list that isn't overpopulated


It may not be for everyone, and I'm sure people will disagree with the picks, but this includes all games in the 'Top' lists from Games Radar, Giant Bomb and Dorkly, plus a selection from the top scored Metacritic games (78+). Additionally if there is one from a series included in those lists, I have generally included the others (although not all)


Either way, I feel this is a pretty comprehensive top list for this system...
Based upon current hyperlist.


Interested to hear anyones thoughts!

Release 2.2: Nintendo DS - British Version
Changes Professor Layton and the Last Sprecter to Europe version with correct spelling - Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call


Changelog 2.1:
Reordered Bomberman and Bookworm as they were the wrong way around alphabetically


Changelog 2.0:

  • Made this a definitive *TOP 100*
  • Added Manufacturer / Year / Genre and Rating
    • Manufacturer is Developer from Wikipedia
    • Year is US release year from Wikipedia
    • Genres are simplified from Wikipedia
    • Ratings from ESRB website

    [*]Pokemon Changes

    • Re-ordered Pokemon Games to match release order and pairings
    • Removed Pokemon Diamond & Pearl (since Platinum is an enhanced remake of both)

    [*]Added in some games that I originally missed (notably Yoshi games) [*]Tweaked Game Names to more accurately match the current release names (mostly removal of tags) [*]Removals

    • Removed Puzzle Quest Galactrix and Puzzle Quest 2 (leaving just Challenge of the Warlords, the most highly rated)
    • Removed Scribblenauts - Super Scribblenauts is effectively the same game but more advanced
    • Removed the less well reviewed Bomberman Land Touch! 2
    • Removed Plants vs. Zombies to get it down to the 100. There are better versions of this game out there on other systems if you want this for your HS Setup.


To Do: Change Professor Layton Last Specter for Spectre's Call (EU Version)
- Why? Because I'm British and the misspelling is annoying as hell


NB: I probably won't release that version, as this is the more unified list ;) Released as 2.2 - If you speak anything other than British English, i recommend you stick with 2.1!!
