So yeah. Went and picked up our Family pictures after work today which just so happened to be next to Curcuit City. Hmmm...walked in, saw the GB and bought it
Hey, nice. I retract my cheap bastard comment. Kind of.
I caved quicker than Courtney Love on a date.
(And I mean that in both the Andrew Dice Clay way, and in the "hey, Courtney Love is a whore" way.)
Any games I need to pick up? I think I've been told but meh, I'm lazy
Well, here's all the GBA games that I've got:
Konami Collector's Series: Arcade Advanced
The Legend of Zelda: Classic NES Series
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past / Four Swords
Metroid: Zero Mission
Midway's Greatest Arcade Hits
Pac Man Collection
Super Dodge Ball Advance
Super Mario Advance (Super Mario Bros. 2)
Wario Ware, Inc. Mega Microgame$!
Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3
All of the Nintendo-made games are fantastic, and you can't really go wrong with any of them. I don't think Nintendo has released too many stinkers of their own.
That said, I get the most usage from Namco Museum (Ms. Pac Man, Galaga, Dig Dug, Pole Position, Galaxian). It can be had at most places for ten bucks or so--you can't go wrong. The other classic compilations are decent--Pac Man's good, Konami's okay, and Midway. . . well, Midway. . . that was probably a wasted ten-spot.
My short want list for GBA games:
Mario Golf: Advance Tour
Mario Kart: Super Circuit Racing
Mario Vs. Donkey Kong
Super Mario Advance 2 (Super Mario World)
Super Mario Advance 4 (Super Mario Bros. 3)
(And yes, I am a Mario whore.
Other GBA games that get a lot of good word-of-mouth:
Advance Wars 2
And don't forget, the GBA:SP plays everything under the sun with a Game Boy logo, so you can play classic GB games like this:
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX
The Legend of Zelda: The Oracle of Ages
The Legend of Zelda: The Oracle of Seasons
And of course--every Game Boy system needs a Tetris game to go along with it, so pick up Tetris DX, first released for the GBC way back in 1998.
I'm done. Enjoy your stuff.
