The Current Top 25 Nintendo DS Titles

Proving everyone, everywhere, at all times, wants to rock, Guitar Hero enters at the top slot this time around with its DS version that comes complete with a snap-in “fretboard” for your DS. If it’s Nintendo, you’re guaranteed Mario action, and the appearance here of New Super Mario Bros., Mario Kart DS, Mario Party DS, and Super Mario 64 DS seem to indicate that a great mustache love still runs deep for DS fans. And several counters to “them vidya games’ll rot yer brain” appear, with the Brain Age games, Ubisoft’s My Coach language tutors, and Professor Layton’s brain-wrenching posers all doing well.
