I love Yoshi! I remember playing Yoshi´s Story quite a bit. The Yoshi Touch and Go is a great little game for quick playing - but it really is too short.

Lego Star Wars III 3DS
Lego Star Wars III 3DS brings the fun of the lego series to the 3DS handheld platform. It's generally a good job, but the small screen is tough for this game.
Mario Kart DS
I loved Mario Kart when it first came out on the SNES in the early 90s. I found the DS version to be just as fun - and far more portable!
Bomberman was always a basic arcade style game. The DS adds new life into it by allowing a single card to host up to 8 players in multiplaying fun.

Sega Superstars Tennis takes the full console version and brings it down to the smaller DS level. This is a challenge for the tennis part - but does quite nicely in the minigames area.
Spectrobes DS is a hand held RPG style game that involves collecting and fighting. Disney made this, and the graphics are rather impressive.

Spyro, the purple dragon, has been a favorite of mine since he first came out. Now he's flying, romping and bashing his way through a shadow realm.
Star Fox Command DS
Star Fox Command DS brings the fun space combat world of Star Fox to your DS handheld. It's actually quite fun, strategizing your order of attack and spinning into action!

I have really loved some Wario games in the past. I thought Twisted and Smooth Moves were simply brilliant. I have to say I felt a bit let down by Master of Disguise for several reasons.
