Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I haven't seen one of these lately and there appear to be a glut of DS recommendations threads, so I figured it was okay to ask.
Was recently given a PSP Lite, and I'm loving it so far but as I was never expecting to get one I haven't been keeping up with the games available for it.
I have Daxter and GTA: Liberty City Stories so far (loving the latter, as always) and I'm wondering what else I could put on Christmas lists.
Games I am already buying:
GTA: Vice City Stories
Silent Hill: Origins
Games I am interested in but will wait to borrow from a friend:
Games I know of but am not interested in:
Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness (I've seen FF: Tactics played before, and Disgaea played on the PS2 and I found both boring).
Games that are ports are a-okay as the only other console I have ever owned is a DS so you can assume I've not played anything.
Platformers/side-scrollers I am not so hot at. I'd only really be interested if they are super-duper easy (a la Princess Peach).
I have also never got the hang of thumbsticks on any console. The first thing I did when playing Liberty City stories was to re-map the vehicle controls to the d-pad.
I'm a sucker for micro-management simulation games, but as a result I have at least 5 of those waiting to be played on the DS so perhaps I'd best not buy the latest Harvest Moon or whatever...just yet.
I like narrative games - adventure games and RPGs with fun stories and less grinding - and puzzle games.
If it helps:
Examples of games on the DS I have loved: Phoenix Wright, EBA, Hotel Dusk, Puzzle Quest, Princess Peach, Rocket Slime, Mario vs Donkey Kong 2
Examples of games on the DS I have not loved: NSMB, Castlevania, Contact
