Hi there!
I'm leaving for a packpack trip this week, and I'm taking my trusty Gameby Micro with me for when I feel like a little gaming before I'm going to sleep and don't feel like reading.
Here's a list of some of the games I already have and got at a garage sale last week (WOOH!), so you can get an idea of what I like.

Advance Wars 2
Breath Of Fire II
Castlevania: Aria Of Sorrow
Fire Emblem
Gunstar Super Heroes
MarioKart
Mario VS. Donkey Kong
Metroid Fusion
Shining Soul
Sonic Advance 2
Wario Land 4

Thank you!

When I go backpacking I like to leave my electronics behind.

Anyway, Castelvania, Circle of the Moon though it's dark and may be hard to see on the micro?
Double Dragon Advance or Final Fight One if you like beat 'em ups.
Metroid Zero Mission

To blessed to be stressed.
80's music makes me feel fabulous.
I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

I assume you mean GBA game suggestions that you don't already have, because I'm sure you can choose between your own games. :P

  • Metroid Zero Mission (Not as good as Fusion imo but worth getting for more Metroid)
  • Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
  • Yoshi's Island
  • Warioware Inc. Minigame Mania
  • Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones (If that first one isn't enough for you :3)

I'm still thinking about which games to take with me actually! I've already played most of the games I listed, and I'm not stuffing my backpack with games, since the trip is the main reason for going anyway :P. But thanks for the suggestions! Please add more if you can remember them!

@Ryno I might just do that too, But I'm flying as well, and stewardesses can only keep you entertained for so long. I'm not taking my charger with me, so when it's out there's nothing I can do about it, It's mainly for during my flight. I assume my journey will be at least twice as entertaining as my gameboy..

I have my micro with me too!

I brought Zelda ALttP, Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland and Pokemon Emerald to this trip.

If you're traveling chargerless, I'd recommend taking only Wario Ware Inc. or a similar game. Any mario advance game is good too, they come with Mario Bros, which is a fun little time waster.

More? Well since you asked, these are others I know are worth a try. :o

  • Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land (Fun Platformer)
  • Pokémon LeafGreen/FireRed or Emerald (Just in case these weren't obvious)
  • Super Mario Advance (There are four in total; all very good Platformers)

Just stating these as general recommendations though; You already have plenty of games for the trip especially considering you wont be charging.

@Geonjaha I'm leaving this week so I don't have te time to search for all of them. There's a sweet secondhand shop nearby so I'm just going to check out what they have. Thanks y'all!

Double Dragon Advance, Mega Man Zero, Sonic Advance 1, and Donkey Kong Country 3 (the GBA port is pretty good) make for fun times.
