Okay I just wanted to start a thread here so people can talk about PSP/Nintendo DS games since handhelds have became so popular over the past few years. I myself own a DS and I'm starting to kinda want a PSP but anyways..

My girlfriend recently got Mario Party DS and its a blast, great for anyone who is a fan of the series, a fan of party games or a fan of something to kill 15 minutes when you are with someone who has another DS. Only requires 1 game cart to run with all the games features, and the game runs quickly and smoothly as well, the only draw back is no online play which I find kind of puzzling but oh well, still great.

On another note I wish I had a PSP for Silent Hill Origins! ARgh!

I've been playing the various versions of the Gameboy since they first came out. I tend to stick to mostly RPG stuff like the ports of the early Final Fantasy games.

FF3 was the first game I got for my DS. Still working on getting the last group of job classes. I can't wait until Tactics Advance 2 comes out for it. Sounds really good from what I've heard from people that have played the japenese version.

Who doesn't love playing games in 4 colors where the 4 colors are White, Black, Light Grey, Dark Grey? I remeber how big a deal it was to get the thing that let you play Gameboy games on the SNES. You still had white and 3 gradually darker shades of a single color of your choice, but at least it was color.

I can not say enough good things about the PSP. Especially now that I read the next firmware update is going to allow access to internet radio.

One of these days I am going to break down and buy a handheld gaming system.

Of course, the excuse will be that it is for my daughter who is about to turn 8. :)

I have my third DS game set for Christmas. I went to buy Final Fantasy XII:Revenent Wings and my mother offered to buy it as a Christmas Gift instead of me paying for it and playing it now.

I love my DS. Mario Kart, Elite Beat Agents (get it, play it. SO GOOD!), New Super Mario Bros, POKEMON!, The Sims :oops: , so many good games, I can't think of them all. OH! Animal Crossing, and I just picked up Zelda, but haven't been home to play it yet. I hear it is really good. I have over thirty games and I like MOST of them. Great system.

I got FF12:Revenant Wings for Christmas. Having lots of fun with that.

Also giving thought to getting a PSP eventually. I already really want to play its port of FFTactics. Also for some reason lately I've really wanted to play lemmings again and the only version I seem to keep finding is the one for PSP. If hey come out with another couple games for it that I want I'll probably give in and get one.
