My Top 10 Game Boy Advance Games

Welcome back to another of my top 10 games on some system. I already tackled 3DS, DS and Game Boy, so now I am going to list my top 10 Game Boy Advance games. I only own 20 and have actually played 18 of them. The other 2 I will eventually get to. So which of these are my favorites? Let’s find out!

#10

Fire Emblem TSSFire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Intelligent Systems/ Nintendo

2005

 

This series poses such a problem for me. I really hate this genre of games, with the whole strategy and perma-death thing, but they are so stinking fun. I was addicted to this game for a long time.

Inti Creates/ Capcom

2002

 

I refused to play this game for the longest time, just because I hated the art style so much. How did they turn Zero, who looked so awesome in the PS1 games, into this scrawny little girl?

But once I got over that, I regretted waiting to play it. The smooth, simultaneous buster and saber use I had always wished for in the X series was finally brought to reality! This is some of the finest gameplay in a sidescroller and actually has a pretty good story too.

Inti Creates/ Capcom

2003

 

Not much to say other than that this takes everything from the first game and makes it better, while advancing the story.

Inti Creates/ Capcom

2004

 

I know, I know, you are getting sick of seeing these games now. But remember, I don’t have too many games, and these are really excellent. Again the third installment is an improvement over the other 2.

Inti Creates/ Capcom

2005

 

No surprise for the number six entry. It isn’t often to see a series get better with each game, but this one pulls it off. The stories conclusion is wonderful as well.

Camelot Software Planning/ Nintendo

2001

 

This is one of the best turn based RPG’s out there. People are always talking about the Final Fantasy series, but this game is easily better than all of those. It has some great gameplay mechanics and an awesome story, and wonderful level design. Tons of fun, it is.

mlss Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga

Alphadream Corporation/ Nintendo

2003

 

Speaking of great turn based RPG’s, this is up there as one of the best. This was such a surprise when they announced it. I couldn’t wait to play it. When I finally did, I found they took all the great things from all the other Mario RPG’s and evolved them into a masterpiece. I was blown away by how good this game was, and seeing as all it’s sequels have made my other top 10 lists, it is a series that keeps going strong. In fact, they just released an updated version of this game for 3DS!

#3

minish-cap The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Flagship/ Nintendo

2005

 

Nintendo proved  once again that handheld Zelda’s are just as incredible as the console games. A great story is at the heart of amazing gameplay that makes it truly a worthy title in the Zelda series.

#2

Metroid_Fusion_box Metroid: Fusion

Nintendo

2002

 

Just seeing this cover art brings me back to the first time I played it in real life. Like with Minish Cap, Nintendo proved Metroid is just as good on handhelds as consoles. This has excellent gameplay, and probably the best story in the series. It is also one of the more challenging games in the series too. Just awesome.

#1

Metroid_--_Zero_Mission_(box_art) Metroid: Zero Mission

Nintendo

2004

 

Damn. I mean damn. This game is so good. It is probably the best remake of all time. It takes Metroid to another level of awesome. This game really shows what the series is all about. Not only is this my favorite game on Game Boy Advance, but it’s probably up there in best games ever made.

Thanks for reading! If you have never played any of the games on this list, I highly recommend doing so. The Game Boy Advance is a great system, and these 10 games are gems among its great library.
