  1. Absolutely agree with KH being the best game in the series. So cool to hear others agree. Stort was great like you said and the customisation options and unique levelling method with the levling blocks was incredible. It was allot of fun and I adore it. Easily one of the highest technical achievements as a full 3d action rpg on the ds with so much creative gameplay, great music and a fantastic story! So glad to hear others share that opinion!!!

  3. My GOAT series for the DS is the Ace Attorney series.
    Hands down.
    The Zelda games come in close second, but nothing beats Ace Attorney for me, and I'm still angry that they haven't translated all the games.

  4. I truly agree with you on both the points you made on Castlevania and Advance Wars, Aria of sorrow is by far the better of the 3 games on the DS and i dare say it might challenge Symphony of the Nights for the throne of the best Castlevania game of the lot, or at least its on par with it in my oppinion, it has so much flavor in terms of what you can do,collecting all souls,equipmets and crafting weapons,then when you have everything and have completed the true story you can then begin to use said souls and weapons to demolish boss rush mode with crazy broken combinations of your most nasty souls and equipmets you have depending on what boss you face, a favorite combo of mine is the Valmanway Sword that you get rom using the Abbadon soul, then the Devil soul on R to make your physical attack double for the side effect of dranin your HP by 10 each second, also getting the much broken MP ring that lets you have infenite mana and spamm UP +Y abilities like archer or fireball, or use Black panter soul to just speed blitz through the castle are fun stuff to use, never gets old, its a very addicting game that i have completed several times over.

    Advance Wars:Dual Strike is my favorite game in the Advance Wars Series and probably the best gameplay wiese, Black Hole rising might have a better story, but its hard to chose one both have some fun moments, (also Advance Wars Days of Ruin did NOT happen in my world, they just took a very wrong turn with that entry).
    Dual Strike is eaven more addicting than Dawn of Sorrow or than crack cocane, cuz that shit will leve you paralyzed in the spot you stand on if you start playing no joke, all the fun little side quest to get all medals from destrying x amount of units or deplying x amount of units and see the comment on the 3rd medal you get is super fun and i absolutely grinded this game for 300+ houers to max out everyhing,from levling all characters past lvl 10 to get the costumes + colors and ability to equip all the extra badges, getting all the medals and trying my hardest to get the best rank in campain and hard campain, choosing diffrent costumes and color for each character (Santa Olof with white beard FTW and Red hair Emo Adder is 2 of my favorite costumes) and finding the fun Combo Dual Strikes Tag Supers like Bruise Cruise (Lash + Flak) and Heavy Metal (Jess + Jake) is super fun.
    And this game comes with the much needed SOUND TEST MODE,cuz the music is just killing it, i can listen to i for hours end on many of the tracks, the ending theme or credits theme is so nice.
    its extra fun if you own the AW 1 & 2 games on GBA and insert the cartridges in the DS/Lite while you start Dual strike then go to battlemaps and you can get 2 new maps for free with each of the games inserted in the GBA slot.
    this is also crazy fun to play on multiplayer, pre deployed with Kanbei ist just mean xD
    these 2 Titles are Immortal and will forever be in my collection until i force them on to the next generation.

    3, 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 & 15 I own. Others are flash cart, but they all deserve to be no. 1!

  6. Nice to see an anthropomorphic doggy-mech beat-'em-up JRPG for the DS make the list, even if only barely. Man, those are five words I never thought I'd say in the same sentence.

    Where the everliving heaven is Rhythm Heaven?!

  7. The timing of this video couldn't be better! I've been getting back into playing the DS myself, bought a copy of Dawn of Sorrow to discover the game for the first time ever. Seeing it on your list just makes look forward to getting it even more! Great video as always Nick! 😀

  8. That's a very nice list with a lot of not too obvious choices. I feel like you totally deserve more views. Your videos are produced with care, you are charismatic guy and I've never seen any channel before who even adds descriptions on the time bar. Actually I didn't know that is a thing befire seeing it on your videos. Keep up the good work. =)
