I was mostly took care to purchase all the GBA games I was playing as Roms for more than 24 hours and liked.

I have an old footage of my collection on Youtube... Since then, I bought even more of the missing stolen games!

GBA has to be the worst handheld console ever released.

There were like 3 good games, and even those weren't great.

When I said "old crappy tv" I didn't mean it in a bad way. I too love the look and feel of them.

GamesterXIII - GBA is awesome!

GBA had a good Mario Kart, some good Castlevania's, the Golden Sun games, Minish Cap and the Advance Wars games. Also I had fun with Wario Land 4. The rest seemed mediocre.

I quite enjoyed the GBA's library. There was a lot of licensed junk, but there were good games to be had.

Off the top of my head there was:

Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga
Mario Kart
Super Mario Advance 1-4
Advance Wars
Pokemons
The Donkey Kong Countrys
Minish Cap
4 Swords
Megaman zero 1-4
Sonic Advance 1-3
Megaman and Bass
Metroid Zero Mission
Metroid Fusion
Mario Tennis
Puyo Pop!

(Can't personally vouch for half of these though. >_> )

And then for megadorks like me, the Battle Network series. ALL BAJILLION OF THEM. There were others too, like Golden Sun and a Final Fantasy or two. But I wasn't generally interested in them.

The thing I love most about the GBA was the original's form factor. I would love if the 3DS went to something as comfortable.

Two issues I had with GBA.

1. You needed a very strong lightsource to make out anything on the screen. Yes, they put out a frontlit version a year and a half later, and then an actual backlit version, but by then I was already fed up with the system.
2. SNES ports (Super Mario Advance, Donkey Kong Country games) were priced the same as new games. I would loved to play Super Mario World on it (well, had I actually been able to see anything on it) but not for 45

I wouldn't consider GBA retro anyway (or any system made in the 2000s)

Make some more box arts damnit!

I never considered the SNES ports actual GBA releases. What was Super Mario Allstars or 5-pack on the SNES was released in overpriced bits on the GBA and the DKC ports were inferior to the SNES versions, especially music-wise. Why did DKC3 need new music?

I agree with OMC, it was the most comfortable handheld ever. I never play the DS because I hate holding it.

I loved my GBA but even the really good games never got much playtime. I only really played Mario kart super circuit and Sonic advance 1. I hardly touched Golden sun, Yoshi's island or Zelda minish cap even though they're excellent games. Strange really. I also have 2 pirate carts that are just a Nes emulator and 100 roms but they're just awful lol.

Astro Boy by Treasure is supposed to be really good.

The games I enjoyed were
Megaman Zero
Golden Sun (too much talking)
Iridion 3d was alright but suffered from difficult to read collisions

All of the snes ports that I played were absolutely terrible and made me want to commit suicide instantly. Seriously . . . look at Earthworm jim. Even the mario ports weren't superb (though they weren't as bad as the others)

Sonic advance 1 was OKAY. The game was plagued by "run off of this platform and have no idea what you're falling into" crap.

Other than that I gave up after downloading a bunch of roms and all of them being absolute crap.

wow. gba was not even as terrible as you say. not to mention its huge backlog of gameboy and gameboy color games.

"You needed a very strong lightsource to make out anything on the screen. Yes, they put out a frontlit version a year and a half later, and then an actual backlit version, but by then I was already fed up with the system."

as did you also for the gameboy color, gameboy pocket, and original gameboy, whats your point? if you really cared you could have modded it like most people to have a front or backlight or bought one of those addon light things. i never had a problem with needing a "very strong lightsource" all i needed was a lamp turned on while i was on the couch, or if i was in the car, as long as it was daylight it was fine. no idea what youre going on about.

Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga
Super Mario Advance 1-4
Pokemons
tLoZ: a link to the past + four swords adventure
f-zero
megaman battle networks
...more i cant remember
...super huge backlog of gb/gbc games

gba was by far the BEST iteration at the time of the gameboy series.

oh and on topic: the most recent system i bought was a playstation for 10$ which i *cough*modded*cough*. im playing Croc: legend of the gobbos and the jumping flash series right now.
