NDS games that don't require touchscreen controls.
« on: March 10, 2014, 08:56:12 AM »
I'm building an HTPC/Emubox that will be controlled by an xbox controller, so DS touchscreen input is useless to me.

Need game suggestions.

Yeah, you'd be mostly stuck with early RPG's.

I'm not 100% sure you won't need the touchscreen at some point because it's been a while since I played them, but here are a few options:

Chrono Trigger
Children of Mana
Disgaea
Digimon World Dusk/Dawn
Final Fantasy III
Luminous Arc
Megaman Battle Network 5 Double Team
Megaman ZX
Megaman Zero Collection
Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure
Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days
Yu-Gi-Oh! 2011

Contra 4

I think, Pokemon D/P/Pl. Apart from that bread making minigame, it's playable with the d-pad. Dunno about B&W 1/2.

You do have to click the center of a pokeball at the very beginning of the game on the touchscreen for diamond and pearl, pretty sure it goes the same with plat too.

I'm also saying RPG's. I play them on emulator or my phone and I've never needed to(from memory) use the touchscreen.

I think 999 isn't going to work. Since it does require some touch screen input.
I take back that most visual novels don't take touch screen input :/
