I'm working on a project - the general public is going to workshop it for me.
I've played a seemingly innumerable list of Nintendo DS RPGs (17), and in trying to consolidate my thoughts on the system I decided a quick inventory was in order. What follows is the list of every DS RPG I recall playing, what my thoughts were initially, and what they were at the conclusion of the title. For the sake of brevity (it's the soul of wit, you know) I'm limiting my "thoughts" to four words.
Note: these may not relate to the game's quality - they are just my quick thoughts.
I plan on using this list for a future feature. This blog post is more of a workshop for the idea. Just doing this list has already been enlightening. I advise you try it with your gaming history. It has created an interesting mix of memories that historically had no reason to blend together.
