Are 3DS games compatible with the DSi & What are good games?

Hi again,

I just want to know if the 3DS games are playable/compatible with the DSi. I have searched the store at my place, but there aren't many games that I like. I'm more of a RPG (Pokemon), Action/Adventure kind of player, so I was looking for some games.

Also, am I able to play 3DS games with my DSi even though it's not in 3D? So that the game is in 2D, but working?

Correct, the 3DS game cartridge has a little extended bump on the side of it so it will only fit into a 3DS and can not be inserted into any of the other DS handhelds.

What the above contributors said.

And it's the contrary of what you said - Purchase a 3DS and you'll be able to play DS(i) games, in 2D, and working.

Hence the word 3DS. 3DS games will not play, because the 3DS is the only Nintendo system that can play these games. DS, DSlite, DSI and DSIXL are not programmed to display 3D like the 3DS does.

There are still lots of great games in the DS family, like Rhythm Heaven, The World Ends With You, even New Super Mario Bros (1).

Google "Top Nintendo DS games" to see some reviews, and you can wait for the 3DS games a year later

I know but I thought it'd be a system like the older Gameboy Advance. That console accepts GBC games, but not the other way around

Well I hope you're not getting confused. The 3DS CAN play DS games. It just can't display them in 3D is what he's saying.
