Same as Thoren's thread but just for the Ds/Dsi/DsiXL and any RPG.

Which game do you think is the best RPG on the Ds, so far?    What title would you give the Ds RPG Oscar to?

Only one. No lists.

Ummm... I'd say Avalon Code, good story, and nice gameplay.
Though the one i think it haves the best story so far is Dragon Quest 5, but well, the gameplay is the same as in all Dragon Quests.

Although I may not have given it the highest review score ever, my favorite DS RPG to date is easily The World Ends With You.  Killer modern visual style, wicked music, cool plot (especially when the 2nd playthrough reveals tons of lore/backstory), fun frantic gameplay (being able to adjust multiple parameters for levels and difficulty was genius).  Great game, best thing Square Enix has put out in years, too bad we'll likely never see another RPG like it.  

I haven't played Infinite Space yet, but from what I've heard, that game is supposed to be stellar.

SMT: Devil Survivor is pretty killer. It's SMT in SRPG format and it works extremely well.

Chrono Trigger.

But excluding ports/remakes, I'd probably say Tales of Hearts.

Le Journée Étranger.

Haven't played IS but it sounds like it doesn't really add anything to its particular sub-genre.

After reading so much in the forums here I had to register, and having bought a DS mainly for RPGs and having played a bunch of them already, not only the best RPG on the DS but my favorite game on the console: The World End With You!

I just knew before playing that it was an RPG made by Square-Enix, but it turned out to be so much more! Interesting characters, story, set in this time and age instead of a completely different place gave it a refreshing feel. I 've heard that depending on how you play it, it can be done with it in less than 10 hours, well, for me it lasted almost 40. That's just how much I liked the game.
I'm still planning a second run through it.

As a honorable mention, I'd like to point out SMT: Devil Survivor, great game! I'm still playing Strage Journey, but I think the first one got my attention more.

Etrian Odyssey II and Shiren are about as close to perfect as video games get.
