Professor Layton and the Curious Village

If you like puzzles, all kinds of puzzles -- word puzzles, math puzzles, chess puzzles, jigsaw puzzles, geometry puzzles, etc, etc -- then Professor Layton and the Curious Village is exactly the game you want on your Nintendo DS. There's even a special feature where, after you've finished the nearly 200 puzzles in the game, you can download a new puzzle each week. Puzzles! Oh, and it's gorgeous.

Probably my only complaint about the game is that the way the puzzles are integrated into the main through-line is tenuous at best and that, oddly, the mystery of that main plot unfolds on its own, with out giving you a chance to solve it.
