Help choosing a game?

I'm getting a DS either today or tomorrow and I've been trying to make decisions about the type of games I would want.

I already got Animal Crossing and Zelda and I should be picking up Mario Kart and Brain Age 2. Other than that, I'm pretty much stuck. I've heard a lot of good things about New Super Mario Bros. People have recommended Castlevania to me but I have NEVER played any of those games before. Would it be a good idea for someone like me to get one of those games?

I'll definitely be picking up a Pokemon game and GTA China Wars sometime
soon.

How is Warioware? Trauma Center? Rhythm Heaven? Boing! Docomodake? Spore? Final Fantasy? The World Ends With You? Super Mario 64 DS? Age Of Empires (or similar games)?

Is the Tomb Raider Underworld game better on a platform or is the handheld okay?

I'm not really a big puzzle person but something like Brain Age does interest me. The main thing I'm looking for is something that is going to have a large replay value and is actually fun that I won't feel like selling in a week. I hate wasting my money on games that I feel like selling.

I know I have a ton of questions but I really appreciate the help. Thank you!

I have Mario Kart DS, Brain Age 2, Pokemon Platinum, and Zelda: Phantom Hourglass.

Is Resident Evil good on the DS? I have an Xbox 360 so if it's lacking I'd rather just get RE: 5.

If you have much interest in strategy games then give Panzer Tactics ds a whirl. 3 campaigns, 20 missions each, VERY good gameplay. Doesn't quite have the replay value of Advance Wars unless you can find a human opponent, but the campaigns alone will keep you busy for a good while. Oh and I wouldn't bother with Age of Empires cause real time strategy games are just frustrating on ds.
