Just wondering which one is better for playing GameBoy and GameBoy Advance games on the TV?

Super Game Boy only plays original Game Boy games, albeit in color. Since the GBC, and especially the GBA, hadn't been released yet, you can't play those games on it. I'd definitely get the Game Boy Player, although it won't play original Game Boy games in color. You can either use the Game Cube controller or the GBA with a link cable, but I'd recommend the latter because it's less awkward.

Probably the GameBoy Player, since it'll play GameBoy, GameBoy Color, and GameBoy Advance games (and yes, it plays them all in color).
I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

Thank you, pixelman. I only had one or two Game Boy Classic games, so I didn't know that.

If you like playing games with the Super NES controller, get the SGBP, but otherwise, go with GBP

Super Game Boy is a good add-on because you could set up the color and control scheme while in the game with the SNES controller. The Game Boy Player is good, and with the GameCube controller, and could play all Game Boy games (although how I'm gonna play WarioWare Twisted on my GameCube is beyond me). I personally prefer the Super Game Boy, 'cause I'm more fond of it. Game Boy Player is good too.

Twist the GameCube itself! Such worked for me!

Thanks for the info. I should have known that the Super GameBoy came out before the Gameboy Advance was even conceived. Looks like I have some ebaying to do.

I would suspect there is the problem of SGB-enhanced games.The enhancements would only work on SGB, because they relied on the SNES hardware.So, they could probably only be played on the Player in non-SGB mode.(haven't played one, but I'm going to guess the SNES hardware wasn't supported or they could've made it a GB-and-SNES Player.)
I know that GBA Videos would block the GBP for copy-protection reasons, but I thought I heard Wario Twisted and Yoshi Topsy-Turvy would block the GBP as twising the GC was not recommended.

GBP is really great. I've never played a SGB before.

I used to have a Super Game Boy, and I remember it being really good. I have a Gameboy Player now, and maybe it's just nostalgia, but it feels inferior. I need to find another Super Game Boy cartridge soon.

I used to use a Super Gameboy, but now I use the Gameboy Player for the extra compatibility. Definitely do get the special cable that lets you use your GBA as a controller though -- I found the GC controller almost impossible to use.

Naturally, the Game Boy Player as it is also compatible with the GBA games.

I wish you could get a gameboy player for the Wii, that's the one thing I miss about selling my chipped Gamecube, but it just wasn't worth it to keep that so I could play Activision Anthology on my tv...

They're both great, so buy both. Use the SGB for GB and GBC games and the GBP for GBA games, as GB and GBC carts stick out of the GBP and it looks silly.

Pick up a Game Boy Player and the Hori controller specifically designed for it (it's an SNES-styled Gamecube controller -- no analog sticks), if you can find one. Pure excellence.
EDIT: Yikes! i just checked Amazon for the Hori gamepad, and they have it new for $179.99 USD! That's over ten times what i paid for it ($15 USD)! eBay will likely be the better bet, i imagine.

Although it was great for its time, currently I'd only recommend the Super Game Boy if you have a bunch of original GB carts, as its built-in coloring tends to work better than the Game Boy Player on them, particularly for Super Game Boy enhanced games (Wikipedia has a nearly complete list if you're interested, only missing a couple of obscure Japanese games). If you're only going to be playing GBC (either black or clear cart) or GBA games, stick with the Player.
