Perhaps my favorite thing about the DS is that in addition to some really great standard video game titles, there’re a lot of equally great casual and puzzle games as well. It seems that the touchscreen combined with Nintendo’s perceived sense of whimsy when it comes to games is a good combination. In fact, I’m very surprised there hasn’t been a port of Katamari Damacy for any Nintendo console yet — it seems like a perfect fit for the Nintendo world. While Katamari hasn’t made the jump yet, Professor Layton is a series that fits really well with the Nintendo feel — whimsical, yet high quality.
