EUGENE, Ore., Jan. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- RAVE Reviews, the innovative site that publishes entertaining rankings based on advanced data-driven analysis, has published its ranking of the "Best DS Games," available at https://www.ravereviews.org/entertainment/best-ds-games/.
Between the revolutionary Gameboy and the nifty Switch, it can be easy to forget the period of personal gaming that was ruled by the mighty Nintendo DS. It's a crime that so many people are letting it gather dust in a closet or sit idle on Ebay. This is the device that ushered us from clunky graphics and dimly-lit screens to the hyper-real games of today. After selling 2.3 million units in its first year, the DS quickly became the go-to handheld gaming system around the world.
Some of you may remember playing New Super Mario Bros, our number one pick for Best DS Game, with the full glory of the DS's dual-screens and built-in microphone. Whether you need a hit of nostalgia or are just looking for a fun way to kill time, you need to dust off that DS. Don't get overwhelmed by the countless choices of quality games. In this ranking, RAVE serves up the best DS games from a variety of categories including RPG, platform, adventure, and more.
"You can't go wrong with this line-up of games," said Hillary Miller, Managing Editor for RAVE Reviews. "It just depends if you feel like evading the police in Chinatown or trying to catch Mewtwo. The choice is yours."
In determining which games to feature, RAVE compared reviews from multiple online sources and then accounted for factors such as value for money, believability, multiplayer options, replay value, depth, and game originality.
