I don't know, but I just got a GBA Sp for the first time and let me say, the light makes all the difference in the world! I love it. Now I can't stop playing Mario Golf Advanced haha

I consider it retro.

Y'know what's some good games for GBA?

Mario & Luigi, Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones, the Sonic Advance series, the Super Mario Advance series of remakes, Yoshi: Topsy Turvy, WarioWare, The Legend Of Zelda series, Mario Tennis: Power Tour, Mario Kart: Super Circuit, the Classic NES Series, Metroid Fusion, Wario Land 4, and Mario VS. Donkey Kong.

Then there is also the large selection of Game Boy and GBC games.

Then GBA Video... lol

Of course its retro it was released in 2001 and has been superseded by the DS and now 3DS

I still love the GBA - Micro for portability, SP for the light and the original for the better, more comfortable form factor - One for all occasions lol

Any console or handheld from the sixth-generation era or earlier is considered retro in my book, so yes.

According to the Mods around here anything that isnt current generation is retro. So anything from Gamecube era back is considered retro. I personally dont agree with that but they are the mods.

You know that just because they moderate this website doesn't mean they're correct, right?

I make Pixel Art on occasion, and sometimes sell them as Game Assets.

If it's at least 2 previous generations, I consider it retro. We're in the 8th generation, GBA is 6th generation.

wii is so retro and based on that guy from EA's console gen classification so is wii u but seriously though you can be new and retro at the same time just look at Neo Geo X.

To me, the GBA aint that retro, but then I'm fooled by the 16-bit SNES-like sprites and me' thinks otherwise...It's basically a portable SNES during the Gamecube generation.

If all the games were 32 bit Polygons you'd be singing a different tune there Sluggo'
Oh, and the last GBA game i played was Mega Man Zero and it was beyond RadiCool.

It's funny the GBA doesn't seem retro.... I only consider NES and older retro, it's hard to believe N64 is retro, feels like just yesterday I was a teen playing 007 with my cousins

Yes. Anything 2 generations old is retro to me.

I guess I don't really think of the GBA as a Retro console when it probably is. I mean, we've had the DS, DS Lite, DSi, DSi XL, 3DS, and 3DS XL since the Advance came out so it has been a while.

The GameBoy Micro was released in 2005.

I don't think it matters what's retro or not.

Just for you.
