People with carpal tunnel should never, ever play The World Ends With You. Also, I need to remember not to play it on days when my anti-consumer rage runs high. You get significant stat bonuses for continually buying and properly coordinating brand-name clothing. You have a cell phone that is subscribed to a service keeping you updated as to what brands you should wear where. On the plus side, the game also allows me to pretend that the miso ramen I ate earlier rendered me more agile.
Also, you can control people’s minds with memes.
DS games, why are you all crazy?
