By now I've finished most GBA games I was interested on. On my backlog there's still:

  • Drill Dozer
  • Scurge Hive
  • Rayman 3
  • The first Megaman: BN, but that's more of maybe.
  • Ninja Five-o
  • Lady Sia

For the GBC:

  • MGS: Ghost Babel
  • Shantae
  • Wario Land 3
  • Zelda: Oracle of Ages (already beat Seasons)

If you bump this thread again without making any meaningful contribution I'm gonna have a hard time resisting the temptation to lock it.

Once is desperate enough. Twice is embarrassing. Thrice could well be goodnight Vienna.

Please don't do it again.

It won't happen again. But, it's a bad idea to lock an entire thread based on two single comments that don't add anything.

So, is regurlarly patrolling the forums, making sure everybody is typing an entire paragraph on what they think about a single subject a moderator thing, or is it just you that does that? I was only trying to keep this thread at the top of the forums so everybody could see it, but if you don't want me to, I'll stop.

Happy, officer?

@iGen Care to suggest another sanction then?

FWIW, oh oppressed user, I was just routinely checking the Mods' alerts board and found that there had been two reports made against you (by a non-Mod) for bumping this thread. I think you'll find that bumping threads is generally considered 'poor form', so no, it's not just me.

I have never heard bumping threads as "poor form", nor do I believe it is.

If this thread is to be buried then that's how it's going to be.

You win. I'll shut up.

@Vinny Man, you have to play Ninja Five-0. I usually keep my expectations in check with under-the-radar games, since I see people overhyping meh games all the time. Not in this case, though, it's the real deal. I'd put it up there in a top GBA games list, easily.

Scurge is rough, Lady Sia is rougher and MMBN1 hasn't aged well at all compared to it sequels. All GBC games you mention are good, though. I'm particularly fond of Ghost Babel and Wario Land 3.

@MarcelRguez I played a bit of each game on the list and yeah, Ninja Five-o is pretty great. A hundred times better than The Revenge of Shinobi for the GBA.

BN1 is really very simple in comparison to the others, but from what I read it's also shorter.
I was halfway through Lady Sia last time I played. It's not spectacular, but it's good enough for me to play to the end.

I have an original GBA that I'm pretty sure was my first eBay purchase back in 2003 or so. Soon after I bought it I found the Afterburner front light kit and installed it. My first attempt at any kind of modification to a system. Now after all these years I finally bought an AGS-101 from eBay too. It should be here in a couple days. I've been checking out the Retro Modding website and they have a slew of parts and upgrades for the original. I'm thinking about tinkering around with the original and putting a back light screen in it and possibly some other upgrades. They sell a Metal Jesus Rocks edition on there for somewhere around $300. I don't plan on putting that kind of money into something that is lurking on 20 years old. But its cool to see how passionate some people still are for the GBA.

Alright, here's what we'll do, we'll lock this one, since I can't move comments. I've been looking at this thread and it's all mixed posts about the GBC and GBA. And half the comments are the OP bumping this thread or arguing with moderators. The new thread will become the GBA thread, and if anyone ever feels the need to open a GameBoy thread, he/she if free to do so.
