The WORST And BEST Nintendo DS Games RANKED


Here is my tier list of Nintendo DS games!

The Nintendo DS (Dual Screen) is a handheld gaming console developed and released by Nintendo in 2004. It featured a clamshell design with dual screens, one of which was touch-sensitive. The DS introduced innovative gameplay with a stylus for touch control and a diverse game library that included popular franchises like Mario, Pokémon, and Zelda. It became one of Nintendo’s best-selling consoles, creating lasting memories for many players.

The Nintendo DS is often considered nostalgic because it was a popular handheld gaming console released in 2004. Many people have fond memories of playing iconic games like Mario Kart DS, Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. The dual-screen design, touch controls, and a diverse game library contributed to its unique appeal, evoking a sense of nostalgia for those who grew up playing it.



  1. In my opinion pokemon black and white and black and white 2 are the best of the series I don't want gamefreak to remake the games because I don't trust them with my favorite generation but they will and it will be butched

  2. I’d honestly consider sonic colours ds one of the best 2D sonic games thats not the classic games. But I recommend both the advance series & the rest of the rush saga,( rush, rush adventure & generations.)

  3. I gotta say, I actually really enjoyed Star Fox Command. The story is a little dorky, but it makes up for it by giving you so many branching paths and options. It may not hold up to the likes of Star Fox 64, but that can be said about the rest of the series as well, and I think it's still worth a play, if you ever have time!

  4. I highly reccomend Pokémon Conquest. It's a beautiful crossover between Pokémon and Nobunaga's Ambition, and has dozens upon dozens of hours of gameplay. The ost is PEAK, the tactics, warrior skills, and strategies you can use make it always enjoyable. If you love this game, you'll also love Fire Emblem.

  5. I think Squeak Squad is painfully generic. That game practically does nothing to innovate, with some levels being poorly designed with nothing in them. I mean, I personally think it's on par or maybe even worse than Star Allies. I mean Star Allies was way more memorable than this game. The only thing I can say that I really liked was the animal power up, which was pretty cool in how that let you interact with the levels and the magic power was a good idea, but not executed well. The belly mechanic was different but didn't standout at all.

  6. Wild World was really good for the time and was an improvement from the GameCube game in many ways, which was insane for a handheld! The game was basically a mini world that you could take on the go. Nowadays, though still great, I find myself preferring most other Animal Crossing games, mainly New Leaf and the GameCube game. But I would say this game belongs in platinum treasure. It captures the spirit of Animal Crossing extremely well (unlike New Horizons) and was the first game that popularized the franchise and deserves kudos for that.

  7. Animal Crossing Wild World is such a cozy game. It’s quite similar to the GameCube game, but it adds more quality of life features and online. If you played all the other entries then there’s not much reason to go back to it, though it’s still a great game. The opening theme is just ????????

  8. If you're having multiple mid-life crisis' and you're not well in your 30s or later, then you aren't having a mid-life crisis. You just think you are because of the dread of getting older. Trust me, I've actually been there myself in the past, and now I'm nearly 38. I know what it's like from experience.

    Also, who is Billy and Takeshi69?

  9. Highly recommend Fire Emblem Shadow Dragon. Not my favorite FE game but it’s a fantastic remake of Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light for the Famicom. It’s sequel is sadly Japan exclusive tho…

  10. If you haven't played Puyo Puyo yet it was one of the best puzzle games that i ever played

    There are English patches for the DS Games since Puyo Puyo on the DS only had releases in japan (Puyo Pop Fever being the one exception)

    so i recommend Puyo Puyo it's a blast

  11. I didn't play a whole lot of the DS library because I just prefer to play on a console. I wish I did, Twisted and DIY sound like incredible games, and I've heard so many praise Super Star Ultra. My favorite DS game is Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, it was my first introduction to Fawful, and it did help me understand biology. lol

    Honestly? For the worst pick, that sadly goes to Super Mario 64 DS. If it wasn't for the controls, this would be the definitive version of the game. It feels unnatural without analog controls. Think of it like a car, but there's no steering wheel. Imagine you're driving down the road to Walmart to get some LiveWire and the steering wheel magically disappears. What happens? You fooking die. And for me, I want my games to have good controls. A game having responsive and functional controls, and 64's controls weren't perfect, but they worked and the game was entirely designed around that controller.
