The time in which I had an original DS seems quite short, looking back at it. I had the original silver DS model, not a DS Lite or anything like that. Despite only owning the system for a few years, I still enjoyed a number of quality DS games, and of course I loved the GBA backwards compatibility. Partially because the DS was the first system I owned with a built-in backlight, but also because the ability to play GBA and DS games on the same handheld was awesome! I only owned the DS up until Pokémon Soul Silver and Heart Gold came out. Then I traded it to a friend for a copy of Dragon Age: Origins on the Xbox 360, and my days of playing DS games game to a halt for many years.
But now I’ve got a New Nintendo 2DS XL, and that DS backwards compatibility is giving me the chance to experience all sorts of DS games I missed out on the first time around! Here are my Top 10 DS Games I Want To Play!
