Favorite GBA Game

Well, the GBA has been out for a while. And it already has about a handfull of AAA games already in its library. So which one is your favorite so far.

...Also reply on what game you voted for and why.

I only have Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 but I've played that for a long time, probably longer than my other GBA games. My second game is Final Fight One. Then third is Mario Cart.

How does a U.S. non-resident buy THPS3?

Golden Sun is GOOOOD!

other than shining wisdom, I've enjoyed every single camelot RPG I've ever had the pleasure to play (while I hear they did beyond the beyond, it's also said that sony demanded it rushed out rather than at their own pace, and I have not played the game so I cannot say it sucks or not sucks and it has no impact on my love of all the other games aside from sucky shining wisdom which really and truly sucks badly)

Golden Sun reminds me of what Shining in the Darkness and Shining the Holy Ark would have been from a third person POV instead of first person (all the characters LEAP into an attack!)

oops...

Right now my vote goes to Golden Sun. It may or may not change after I get Advance Wars, though.

...Sorry about not puting F-Zero up there. I know a lot of people bought it on launch. But I never played it, so I didn't remember it when I was making the poll. I did like the one for snes.

Was Shining Wisdom that one game by where there were battles like every two steps. And was really hard to get into. I think that was Camelots first RPG. Maybe even there first game. Amazing how much they improved.

Games

Yeah, I'm gonna pick up Tactics Ogre also when it come out. But since it got moved to May, I might pick up Advance Wars to carry me over. After I have both, I'll be in Handheld RPG bliss.

...The Golden Sun comercial was really well done. But I didn't need a commercial to convince me to get the game.

Import

What country do you live in?

...I guess you can always just import the game. I'm pretty sure you don't need any add-ons to play imported games. At least not in the US GBA.

Or you can just download it, and play on your computer, if you don't want to import.

Edit: Never mind, I just read your profile, and you'r in Japan.

Unhappy

Sorry to be such a stick in the mud, but I can't see why Golden Sun is so popular. Didn't anyone else find this RPG a little on the easy side? My whole party didn't die until the last tower and before that I didn't even lose a character in battle. I also found the magic/djinn system too complicated for what it needed to be. I hope people wont be too brutal in responding. Sorry guys. Tactics Ogre, save me now!

Well, you're kinda right. Golden Sun wasn't the greatest RPG ever. There are other RPG's which are easily better. But still, Golden Sun is a great game. Personally, I didn't find the djinn system that complicated. Probably just as complicated as the junction system from FF8. But that's just me.

Castlevania. Classic platforming adventuring at its finest (next to SotN, of course!). I want Tactics Ogre mucho. And what IS so great about Golden Sun? It's a fun little distraction, but...

It's all about Advance Wars for me. In fact, it is so good that I am angry that Nintendo never brought Famicom Wars or Super Famicom Wars to our shores.
