These are games that were formerly on list of Best Nintendo DS Games for boys. In an effort to keep my best video game recommendations manageable and not too overwhelming and I try to keep list as current as possible a game that may be a classic and one of the most popular DS games for boys cant stay on my “best Nintendo DS Games for boys list forever..
This Hall of Fame list is for Nintendo DS for boys may not be a newer releases but worth getting and having in your video game library. As always I want to stress that these games are not just for boys- just suggestions that other boys both schooled and homeschooled have made to me who are boys. I am in no way trying to apply gender labels.
New Super Mario Bros. is probably the best if mot one of the best Nintendo DS games out there. I know the Pokeman series is up there as well but as far as value for money, play value, interest and how well made the game is- you cant beat this game. Literally a must have if you are looking for one of the best and most popular Nintendo DS games for boys.
LEGO STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA (NINTENDO DS) List wouldn’t be complete without at least one of the fabulous Lego series games for DS.
Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings . Control massive armies with your stylus as you battle to defeat evil in the world of Ivalice.
The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass Another great Zelda game for the DS. Boys and girls continue to be fascinated by all things Zelda. If you are looking at picking up a Nintendo DS game for a boy- consider any of the Zelda series- especially this one.
The World Ends With You One of the most popular nintendo ds games for boys AND girls. Highly recommend.
Mario Kart This is one of the best Nintendo DS games you can get
for a boy. It is a racing game which normally doesn’t translate well to small hand held console- but it works great. Kids enjoy the multiplayer action.
New version coming out this Christmas (Mario Kart 7) and hopes are high for this game and likely will become one of the most popular nintendo ds games for boys.
Mario Party DS This is good for both boys and girls and if you have more than two kids in your family with a DS. Loaded with mini games this is perfect for long car ride. A good solid choice for a video game.
Luxor: Pharaoh’s Challenge This came out this week and we rented it. Not what I thought it would be- ton of puzzle games set in Ancient Egypt. Great for kids who like Brain Academy, etc. Another good video for both boys and girls. I am a HUGE fan of video games that involve problem solving and critical thinking. This is a great example and a good solid choice if you are looking to buy a Nintendo DS game for a boy.
Yoshi’s Island DS A spin off from the popular Mario franchise. Yoshi is probably one of the most beloved Nintendo characters. Excellent graphics and great story line make this one of the most poplar Nintendo DSames for boys ( and sometimes girls! )
New Super Mario Bros. Classic Mario Brothers stuff. One of the best games made and very popular. Both boys and girls like this one.
Metroid Prime Hunters Can you say fun?!! There are a handful of vido games that I myself play- and this a great well made video game with tons of play value. A great choice if you are looking for a good DS game for a boy.
Pokemon Diamond Is a must have Nintendo DS game for a boy. This is probably the most universally loved DS game of all time.
Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin I personally love this video game. This ds game also appeals to girls. It is probably better for older kids- in the 10+ range.
