GBA Games Recommendation

Post by Sakuya » Mon Feb 14, 2005 11:11 pm

I received a Gamestop $25 gift card for Christmas. I was thinking of buying anime DVDs but the stores have stopped selling anime for some reason. :? So I thought I would buy the GBA games instead. Does anyone have recommendations for good GBA games under $25? The kind I like are usually fighting games and RPGs. Hopefully the RPGs won't be too hard (Sailor Moon Another Story was pretty good, not too easy but not too hard; Pokemon was hard and annoying). Any help is appreciated! :wink:

I browsed their catalog recently and found Golden Sun: The Lost Age for just $19.99! It looks pretty good. Is it any good from you who have played it? I heard there was a first game for that, is that any good? I'm also fascinated by the graphics used in PS2 games like Magna Carta and Final Fantasy. Do GBA games' graphics come anywhere near to that? I don't own PS2 and don't think I will own one any time soon so just wondering... :oops:

My two favorite games for the GBA are Fire Emblem and the new Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories game. Or for simple, addictive fun, Super Puzzle Fighter 2 Turbo is awesome.

I've played both Golden Sun and Golden Sun: The Lost Age. So yes, there is a first game, but The Lost Age gives you a big summary of what happened in the first one, and then gives you all the tutorials and such again. So, you don't have to play the first one to play the second one.

And yes, they're both wonderful games.

I agree with Parakiss. I owned Golden Sun: Lost Age before I bought Golden Sun. And they are definentally worth buying!

Mario Games.

Nintendo even rereleased the original Super Mario Bros. too. And I think for only 20 bucks. Can't beat that! :wink:

My Gamestop store doesn't have that! That sucks so much! :x I was so looking forward to it too. :cry: Instead, I got 2 Noir DVDs.

The original Legend of Zelda has been re-released on GBA, too. I don't think I need to explain why that game is recommended. ^^

I really love the Gameboy Advance. (I've been a huge Super Famicom / SNES fan since 1992. ;) )
My favorite GBA games are: Zelda The Minish Cap, Golden Sun and Sword of Mana (Seiken Densetsu remake).

Any of the Advance War games are to die for.
