Default Game Boy Advance

For some reason I got the urge to play Pokemon and some older games (mostly bored at work). I found my old Gameboy Advance but I can't find any games. I hit up Ebay for some cheapies. Bought Pokemon FireRed, Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, Advance Wars, and Super Mario World 2. Any other suggestions for some gems that I missed? I'll probably get the Advance Wars sequels eventually so don't bother listing those.

You're much better off just using an emulator (if you have a computer) instead of buying those games.

But for GBA, all of the Pokemon games are a must. That's all I used to play. I used to play Yugioh too but that's a more select genre.

I have a few games already like I stated. I don't have any interest in an emulator. The games are all cheap as hell on ebay lol. That's not an issue. Just looking for more game ideas. Sadly I'm not interested in Pokemon outside of the original 151. I had no connection to the others because I stopped after Yellow.

Emulators are perfect imo. So many advantages over the real deal.

Essentials:
Zelda A Link to The Past
Super Mario Bros. 3
Wario Land 4
Mario & Luigi: Super Star Saga
Golden Sun
Castlevania (any of them)
Megaman Battle Network (skip the first one)
Megaman Zero\


Not tons of great games on there.

The two Metroid games are pretty sweet to. Metroid Fusion and the newer one I forget. The Final Fantasies were nicely remade as well for the gba. If you like the original Pokemon games, just pick up Fire Red or Leaf Green since they are the original Red and Blue with a ton of extra features.

But as said already, get an emulator. Having save states and a fast forward button just can't be beat. You can level up your pokemon at like 800 fps.

I just downloaded and installed Gameboid for my Galaxy S2 phone and it seems to run GBA roms perfectly. This is mostly to play some of the old RPGs. I just tried the fan-translated Mother 3 (sequel to Earthbound) rom and it seems to work fine.
