Not a big fan of old school arcade games, but I may give Mario Kart DS a try but I really wasn't a huge fan of the N64 or Wii one, granted it is fun playing with friends it wasn't that fun for me playing alone.

that is unless DS supports WiFi multiplayer and you can play anyone across the world then I would pick it up but I don't think it does. (correct me if I am wrong).

Yep, you can play online through WiFi.
Same with Tetris (although people with asian characters in their name will give you a thrashing).

You a fan of puzzle games? I've found the Professor Layton series very enjoyable on the DS.

Why are you getting a DS now when the 3DS is right around the corner?

I see no point in the 3DS because I do not care for 3D gimmicks, but the only puzzle game I have played is the Ace Attorney which I liked and that reminds me I'll have to grab those as well.

Plus I picked up the DSI for $100 bucks and I plan to only really use it during my downtime at school in gaps between my schedule.

I see you're getting some JRPG's, I highly recommend Golden Sun Dark Dawn. If you played the previous 2 games on the GBA you wont be disappointed.

Some other games
Mario Kart- Super fun can't go wrong with this one
Metroid Prime Hunters- Decent FPS
Dragonball Z Attack of the Saiyans- If you like DBZ get this game, its a RPG
Pokemon games- Alot of replay value
Warioware games- Fun mini games, pick up and go kind of game
Meteos- One of the best puzzle games in a long time, the first one is the best one not the Disney version
Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword- Team Ninja did a fantastic job with this game, very good.
New Super Mario Bros- If you liked the og Mario games, you will love this one
Trace Memory- If you like point and click games, this a really good game
Metroid Prime Pinball- By my surprised this a really good game.
999- Very well done game with a good written story.

Those are just some, there are still a ton of games to be said. Especially in the RPG department.

Everybody's already mentioned some great games, but I'd like to add the Advance Wars games, they are great. Also, Pokemon!
