the ds stands for darn super

I really, really like my Nintendo DS. Ed and I both bought one the day the DS Lite was launched in North America, and he’s on his second (his first was dropped in a toilet) and I’m on my third (I’m fickle with colours). I’ve played a lot of DS games and keep a list of games and their release dates for when I’m out and about. I’ve had other portable game systems, but the DS outshines them all. Here’s a list of DS games I’ve played:
