But that might not be saying much. One complaint that some folks have with Nintendo is that its consoles and handheld devices lack mature games. Speaking to MCV in the U.
Adult gamers in Japan have a strong preference for Nintendo's DS over Sony's PSP, according to a new magazine survey - published as the Nintendo DS breaks the million unit sales mark in year to date sales. The survey, conducted by Otonafami magazine and partially translated by US website GameSpot, polled gamers aged over 20, revealing that 25 per cent of them owned a Nintendo DS, 14 per cent owned a PSP, and 19 per cent owned both consoles.

That's about one half percent of all DS games. Kotaku has some theories on this, but I'm not really one to analyze the market or audiences - I'm one to play the dang games. The following is going to be a 10 minute blitz of each of the six released M-rated games for the Nintendo DS, starting with the first released, Resident Evil: Deadly Silence, and finishing up with the recent Grand Theft Auto.

I'm planning to buy a Nintendo DS now that I finally have the disposable income. However, I also happen to know for a fact that a large share of the RPGs on the DS are pretty light-hearted and over-the-top anime cliched.
