What GBA games do you want on the Wii U VC?

I had a GBA, but I didn't have a very big library of games. So I'm not very familiar with them. As for the games I know, I would like the GBA Metroid and Castlevania games.

I wonder if they would release the Super Mario Advance games... SMA4 was the best version of SMB3, except for the lack of the battle mode.

I've still got my Game Boy Advance and Gameboy Player so I would probably just want games I don't have. I would like Fire Emblem and Minish Cap though.

Only problem with E/FR(And I'd assume LG?) is the trading. Without some new inputted feature, you can't actually complete the Pokedex...

Almost all the GBA games that I wanted at the time I still have and play them on my DS Lite. Other than those games I am not to knowledgeable on what other games were released on the GBA. So to be honest any GBA game that I dont have would be nice just so I can give them a try.

I skipped the GBA so when I got my DS Lite I was for a time looking at getting some GBA games. I came to the conclusion that the only games I would really want to get were the LttP port, the Super Mario World port, Advance Wars and Minish Cap. So really all that I would want on the Wii U VC for GBA would be Advance Wars...........

Personally I think they shouldn't put GBA games on the WiiU, I mean what's the point? Stretched GBA games look terrible on TVs, Why not just make GBA games available to everyone on the 3DS VC? I mean we've yet to get many GB/GBC games recently, but we really should have GBA games by now.
I'm part of the ambassador program like a lot of people, but I mean GBA games can't stay exclusive to us forever can they? having put no effort into the gameboy vc library as of late, i'm willing to question why they've decide to release GBA games for the WiiU, can't they put Megadrive, TG-16, N64 and Master System games on instead? then there would actually be a point of transferring my Wii VC games and paying the extra $1.50 to get Miiverse and Gamepad support.

@RetroGBHippie92: I think of course I could be wrong the reason that GBA games arent coming to the 3DS is because it was suppose to be an ambassador gift for people who bought the 3DS prior to the price drop. If they were to release them to the public I am sure that some of the Ambassadors will complain and whine that its not fair that the non ambassadors get them as well. Nintendo more than likely doesnt want to deal with that can of worms so they do the next best thing and release them for the Wii U. Besides I am sure they wont look that bad on the Gamepad.

@Tasuki They'd definitely look bad, streched games are fine on a portable to an extent, but the WiiU isn't a portable and the Gamepad has a large screen, add in the fact that GBA games are widescreen and well yeah, they'd look pretty pixelated to me. I wish Nintendo would leave the Console VC and the Handheld VCs to their respected games, NES games on the 3DS are fine, but personally the 3DS needs the GBA games and so what if ambassador gamers get angry? we've had them plenty long enough and who says they have to release those specific titles we got huh? I'm not phased if people get them anyway.

@RetroGBHippie92: Yeah I totally get what you are saying. I wish more Ambassadors thought like you but sadly I am sure Nintendo would get a large amount of hate mail if they did that. But yeah you do have a point they dont have to release those GBA games to us non Ambassadors they are many more that they could release.

I think getting the GBA games for free still counts as a pretty good gift. I can't see people getting annoyed if they are made available to others for a price. I have quite a few GBA carts that I play on my DS, but some are just too expensive for me. I'd like to grab...

Ambassadors would have no business being angry because they got them free, and Nintendo didn't owe anything to them to begin with. Price drops happen in the world of electronics.

I doubt that many ambassadors would get angry about the fact that people can buy the games on the system after having them for free more than a year exclusively. Nintendo also wouldn't take this into account - they didn't need to give out free games or make those games exclusive for so long - but they did anyway. I agree that GBA games should be on the 3DS before the Wii U though. They're handheld games - why are they being made available exclusively on the home system? The 3DS isn't getting SNES games, nor could it get N64 or Gamecube games - the Wii U has enough to fill its VC.

I agree that the 3DS should get the GBA on its VC but I don't see any reason why the Wii U shouldn't get it. GBA games looking bad on the TV is a weak argument because the GBA was basically a weak SNES with a little bit less resolution than the SNES/NES. NES games look fine on the Wii U and SNES games look fantastic so there's no reason why GBA games can't look just as good.

Also worth remembering that this wouldn't be the first way to officially play GBA games on the TV. You could do it on the Gamecube and ontop of that some Gamecube games interacted with GBA games. If they're going to do Gamecube on the VC eventually it would make sense to also have the GBA on the VC for that reason.
