I then suggested that if one were to go by sales, Tripfag's claim would still be proven false. He didn't seem to believe me, so I threw the wall of text above at him.
I was asking for original games. You counted games like Tetris DS and Animal Crossing: Wild World as "sequels", despite the fact that most of those games play exactly like their predecessors. and if you want to looks at original IPs:

Quote:
* Nintendogs - New IP
* Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day! - New IP
* Big Brain Academy - New IP
* English Training: Have Fun Improving Your Skills! - New IP
* Cooking Mama - New IP
* Flash Focus: Vision Training in Minutes a Day - New IP
* Common Sense Training - New IP
* Professor Layton and the Curious Village - New IP
* Mario Hoops 3-on-3 - New Mario IP
* Super Princess Peach - New Mario IP
* Love and Berry DS Collection - New IP
* Spectrobes - New IP
Hardly system sellers. Most wouldn't even count as games.
