I got one last year. I like it alright. The games aren't going to be better than a regular console, but can be lots of fun. I use it mostly to practice kanji with the ŒŸ’è games. The Japanese selection is way better than the western one. But, I don't think you can play American games on it.
Unlike the Wii, the DS is not region-locked, so you can play both English and Japanese games on it.
There is a large selection of games, mostly due to the fact the DS has been out for long time, now. Do a little research, read some reviews and I'm sure you'll find some fun games (puzzle, RPG, shooter, race, SIM, etc).
You'll find the time on the train goes by a lot faster if you have one!
Ha, ha. A drug that helps you practice kanji. You sound fun.
I have a DS which I bought on a whim. I only have one game. New Super Mario Bros. Honestly, I am not a game person but that alone was worth the price of the DS. It's really cute, really fun, and all the little worlds are cool.
