Released in 2004, the Nintendo DS was easily one of the strangest video game systems ever made. Debuting just a few short years after the Game Boy Advance, the DS and its dual screens seemed like a bizarre concept for a handheld. However, Nintendo and several other developers quickly proved that a lot could be done with the two-screen setup, as well as the mic and touch screen. Companies found a lot of clever and creative ways to use the technology, resulting in games that never could have been possible on older hardware. The Nintendo DS is currently trending on Twitter, and fans have taken the opportunity to share some of their favorite games and memories of the handheld.

The original Resident Evil got a great port.
Nintendo DS is trending so yearly shoutout to Resident Evil: Deadly Silence.
A port of the original Resident Evil (FMVs and voice acting intact) plus a bunch of QoL updates like RE4 knife button, door skips, manual reloads, 180 turn. It’s good stuff. pic.twitter.com/uWprju26Lh
