DS Daily: Underrepresented

DS owners have tons to choose from; after all, there are usually more games we want than we can possibly play in any given year. That doesn't mean everything is perfect, however. It's likely that, no matter how satisfied you are with your handheld, some facet of gaming seems underrepresented to you when it comes to the DS library. What is it? We're dying to know. On the flip side, maybe you think there's too much of a good thing here and there. Maybe you're up to your elbows in training games, or you've noticed that nearly everything is incorporating a little strategy of late. Wait! Maybe we need a Strategy Training game ....

Or not.

I could definitely stand to have some more of those sketch games that disappeared years ago. More Kirby Canvas Curse, please.

You're so right.

I kinda regret selling my copy for 50. Kinda.

Fourthed! KCC is still one of my favorite DS games, and I thought Pac-Pix had a lot of potential (even if it was too short). Drawn to Life used drawing, but it wasn't really part of gameplay---drawing stuff was cosmetically cool, but wasn't really gameplay.

So yes---more drawing action games! Pleeeeease!

Could we have more fighting games, maybe of the Virtua Fighter 2/Fighters Megamix mould. I know the DS is capable.

And maybe a light gun game. I don't know how that would work but I'd like to see someone try. I'd probably buy it just for the sheer concept - but only if they bundle it with a bulky accessory. Because no light gun game is complete without a bulky accessory.

I'd really like to see more traditional RPGs. I'm talking about things like Golden Sun 1-2 for the GBA. We're getting lots of strategy, action, and tactical RPGs (which I love and keep buying) but it would be nice to have something more traditional where you have a party that dungeon crawls, levels up, etc. Maybe an Earthbound DS? or Golden Sun 3?

The day Golden Sun 3 is announced, I hope I have a change of pants with me.

The DS needs a Super Smash Bros. game! Or any other good fighting game. Guilty Gear works, so why not SSB?

A full fledged Warcraft III Port should also be made. Blizzard? :)
