Fyi technically Pokemon Yellow, Silver, Gold, and Trading Card Game are GameBoy games. I have the carts and they all say GameBoy while Crystal says GameBoy Color

Pokemon Yellow is an original Game Boy game, yes.
But I think Silver, Gold and Trading Card are dual-compatible games (GBC games with backwards compatibility mode). Dual-compatible games all say "Game Boy" and are black carts (except for Pokemon, the GB, GBC and GBA games all got version-specific colors).

  • Vegas Stakes (Only released in North America originally)

I'm not listing Japan only first party Game Gear games because there's shockingly incredible amount, even more than the GB and GBC put together. Alot of those are probably licensed or only published by them but I'm not taking the time to tell if they are or not.

Well out of the first party stuff left I'd only probably get Pokémon Yellow and Pokémon Crystal, so I guess its easy to see why Nintendo have shifted their 3DS VC focus solely on NES games. :/

Still praying that Squeenix releases its old games on the VC one day though. :o

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

I don't like how they shifted to 95% NES games. I'd like to download Solar Striker.

Neither do I to be honest. I wanted my 3DS for the VC of handheld games - not old NES games. Why they're giving us NES games and leaving GBA games exclusive to Wii U is beyond me.

NES games on 3DS are a good bonus. Last year in Japan, Nintendo gave them one Game Boy game, one Famicom game, and either one Game Boy Color or Game Gear game each week. I thought that was perfect for them. Now it's only NES/Famicom games worldwide.

Well, the Game Gear floodgates seem to be bursting, but some GB and GBC would still be appreciated.

Some Neo Geo Pocket Color would be nice too, I have no idea why SNK doesn't get on that.

I'm starting a new thread with a new way of updating them, which is updating the first post instead of having a list in every post.

Here's a link to the new thread: http://www.nintendolife.com/forums/3dsvc/full_of_list_first_p...

I sent a note to a mod to close this older one.
