1. Professor Layton and the Lost Future
2. Elite Beat Agents
3. Mario Kart DS

That's this week, ask me next week and it'll have changed. The DS has an extraordinary library - back when I needed to raise some cash I pared my collection of over a hundred games down to just the ones I really couldn't bear to part with and that still left me with over 60 titles. I'm still not even finished collecting - I need Ghost Trick, Infinite Space and a couple more before I'm done.

1. Mariokart DS - I played this against with my Brother a fair bit, great game. The single player was surprisingly good too. I even got the USB dongle to play online but that wasn't so great.

2. The World Ends With You - I loved the whole style, the art, the soundtrack and the post-game mode taking the censored out of itself. Things like sliding difficulties should have become standard (although Bravely Default did them).

3. Kirby's Power Paintbrush - Justified the whole system

Honourable mentions
That shooting down Bo-bombs mini-game from the Mario titles
Glad to see Warioware: Touched being mentioned here but it was overshadowed by Twisted.

Mario Kart DS - Been mentioned already, can't go wrong with Mario Kart it seems.
Project Rub - Got this with my imported DS (I think from Lik Sang) and it really showed off the DS touch screen capabilities at the time. Great pick up and play title.
Any Layton Game - good chilled out gameplay.

This is a hard one. So many brilliant games...let's see...

(3) Project Rub - A great game to show people just how innovative the system was, plus it's bags of fun. Still love this one.

(2) Chrono Trigger - This wasn't released in the UK until the DS years, right? So it HAS to be on my list. One of the best RPGs ever.

(1) Pokemon Black/White - The first in the series where I "caught 'em all". I'd be embarrassed to admit how many hours I spent playing this...for that reason it has to be my number one.

Right now?

1.Drill Spirits - doesnt need the DS really but a great version.
2. New Super Mario Bros - added enough to a tried and tested formula to be worth a play or 1000.
3. Mario Kart DS - My second favourite Mario kart of only 2 versions. Feels suitably like SMK on the SNes to be a spiritual sequel or successor.

1. Mario kart. Played insane amounts of multiplayer with this game.
2. Castlevania portrait of ruin. It was quite a while since last playing a Castlevania game. Once I picked it up I could not put it down until I had done everything.
3. Chrono trigger. I know it never originally came out on the DS. But it was the first chance I had to play this game for once. And what a game it is.
