Nothing associated with Bleach could ever be good.

Bleach: 3rd Phantom is surprisingly good for a licensed game.  I agree 100% with Brittany's review on the site.  The Naruto: Path of the Ninja games on DS are also surprisingly good for licensed games.  I was pleasantly surprised.  Of course, most licensed games are crap (i.e. InuYasha: Secret of the Divine Jewel.)

If we're going to go with non-remake, you cannot miss with The World Ends With You.  Chrono Trigger's hard to top, but that's a cop-out answer.  TWEWY is truly a unique experience.

I liked TWEWY a hell of a lot more than CT.

CT's only real defining gameplay feature was that it had combos, and they weren't even done that well in the sense that a lot of combos didn't actually do appreciably different amounts of damage than using their component skills separately would have, rendering it more of a visual effect than anything.

TWEWY, on the other hand, is an example of taking a core gameplay mechanic, developing it far enough to do the mechanic justice -- something I never felt CT really did anyway -- and then expanding the game by adding peripheral gameplay systems/elements that feel meaningful because they all feed into the central gameplay system.

The fighting games by Treasure were awesome.

TWEWY was the last game to make me feel anything for a DS game.  At least to its extent; the rest was fairly average in comparison to me.  The story was fresh, the characters were interesting, it was nice to lead an emo-fuck like Neku, but gradually see him develop.

I remember nearly losing my mind trying to control both screens at once though...

Like everyone, I wasn't too crazy about the music.  The few tracks I like, however, I in turn loved and thought they suited the urban scene beautifully.

Chrono Trigger...which is technically SNES.  But its still good.  The gameplay is simple, but it is as to be expected.  I think you stick around for the nostalgia and great story.

Soma Bringer was like Secret of Mana in a number of ways.  Nice to customize weapons too.  Brilliant OST brought by Yasunori Mitsuda.

The two Tales of game released (Tempest doesn't count) are pretty booming.

I will forever hate anything Dragon Quest related.

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon on hard x5 is the deepest strategy challenge I've had in some time.  I'm on level 7 or 8 and am in pretty good shape at the moment, but there are really brutal sections that require plenty of restarts.

You've lost me.

Oh.  Also...worst case scenario, if you're into some light-hearted gaming, there's probably like 10 different harvest moons for the DS. :P

If I'm not mistaken, one of the lead developers for CT was Yuji Hori, the lead scenario writer for Dragon Quest and pretty much the series' lifeblood and reason for being.

Which would mean that Chrono Trigger is related to Dragon Quest, at least tangentially.

They also both have character designs by Akira Toriyama.

Also Dragon Quest is the best fucking RPG franchise in the world whether you like it or not.

And I'll never understand why.  How does a dragon's quest compete with muthafuken TIME TRAVEL!>?!?!  (im being semi-sarcastic)

It's the best I've played for having such a range of difficulty-levels.  The highest difficulty level for SD is genuinely challenging.  As much as I like the Game Cube Fire Emblem, the hardest setting is too easy so far.  The Wii Fire Emblem is supposed to be quite interesing, so I'm looking forward to going deeper into that one.
