Going to try to acquire a copy of Mario Kart DS, though I've been told I should spend no more than $30 on it.
What other games would you guys recommend? I'm looking for games that are replayable, fun (duh), and at least somewhat mentally stimulating. I'm thinking I want to avoid the traditional side-scroller games like Mario World, etc., at least for now.
Just to give you an idea of my tastes, I like:
- Tetris Attack
- Sudoku (if I can get my attention span to last that long)
- Trauma Center (played it more on the Wii, though I will catch up in fairly short order) -- I love the gameplay, and the story keeps things interesting. The gameplay by itself makes it a good game, and the storyline seems interesting so far, but only the two taken together make it great IMO.
- Racing Games -- realistic, or incredibly toonish, preferred. I'm thinking here of Mario Kart and Burnout (road rage <3) or PGR/GTA-like games (which I know I won't find on the DS).
- Other new and interesting concept games (like Katamari Damancy was when it came out), especially ones that make use of the stylus in creative ways
So ... if you've got any suggestions, throw 'em at me. :)
