I mean really, could it have been anything else?  To the uninformed, Phoenix Wright is a series of text-based RPG's on the DS.  You play eponymous character Phoenix Wright, Defense Attorney, through a series of increasingly ridiculous cases, with seemingly everything (and everyone) against you.

These are easily four (technically five) of the best games I have ever played.  The controls are simple and take you seconds to learn.  If you don't mind putting up with a lot of reading, you're rewarded with an original, hysterical story that will stay with you long after you've put the game down. 

And it's not just the story that will captivate you--it's the characters.  Phoenix Wright has a long list of colorful characters from crazed murderers to spunky sidekicks and everything in between.  The Prosecutors are bloodthirsty, the police (well, just one policeman) is incompetent, and the Defense Attorneys (and assistants) have far too much access to crime scenes.

Although I love the entire series, my favorite is Apollo Justice.  Set 7 years after the conclusion of Trials and Tribulations, Phoenix hands over the protagonist reigns to young up and comer Apollo Justice.  Maya is replaced with my personal favorite character, Trucy, the Prosecutor becomes Rock Star Klavier Gavin, and incompetent policeman Gumshoe is now enthusiastic Forensic Scientist (well, Detective) Ema Skye.  I just prefer the character dynamics of the characters over the original cast.

A testament to it's success, the Phoenix Wright games are some of the most difficult games to find in the market.  This includes the latest release, Ace Attorney Investigations.  Although (sadly) Apollo Justice 2 is nowhere in sight, there is still a lot of life left in the Phoenix Wright series--Ace Attorney Investigations 2 is on the way, as is the epic Professor Layton/Phoenix Wright crossover game.  If you haven't picked this game up, do it now.
