The fact that this is the only pink anything I own doesn't really matter when I'm playing games. The DS has great battery life, innovative interface, and you can play Nintendo's good ol' fun-n-games titles. The game selection is definitely in keeping with classic Nintendo. There are a few serious games, but all make good use of the dual screens. This system also plays GBA games. The only problem with that lies within individual games (Going from Super Mario World on SNES, to the GBA with just the A and B, and then back to DS with X and Y also, it's a little awkward trying to hold the run button).
The closing lid keeps your screens nice while you're not playing; the extra stylus (though I have not had to use it yet) is handy. Games are very tiny and you could probably fit the whole line in one pocket (though I wouldn't recommend it).
All in all a very nice system.
