List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Nintendo DS at some point.

If you owned a Nintendo DS at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few sports games in your collection. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best Nintendo DS sports games of all time.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling sports games that were released for Nintendo DS. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Examples of items on this list include Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games and Mario Hoops 3-on-3.
