Question A little advice...

I am considering buying either one of the following:

GBA
GBA SP
GBA Player

But i don't know which one to get! I was hoping to get the GBA SP, but you can get a bundle of a GBA plus one of the new pokemon games for the same price as a GBA SP...:yikes:

Is the SP all it's cracked up to be? I know the backlit screen would certainly be welcomed, but other than that...

The other option would be a GBA Player, but that kinda defeats the purpose of portable gaming, even though it is about half the price of a GBA SP.

HELP!!

Also, i was wondering if anyone could recomend any GB/GBA RPG's other than Golden Sun, Pokemon, Sword of Mana or Breath of Fire. I'm sure theres a GB game called Final Fantasy Adventure, is it a spin off of the series, and, more importantly, is it any good?

Well, I would either take GBA Player or SP. After playing SP I have no intention to play on GBA again, now I can spend my whole life in a dark corner plotting what new evil I would release upon this world! MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA

GBA SP!

would be my choise.

dunno about the RPGs though.

Hehe, thanks dude. I imagine moving from GBA to GBA SP is like moving from 56K to broadband: once you've changed, theres no going back!

I have been contemplating switching to SP. Even though I have a hand size problem. But if I do, I will know who to sue for my premature arthritis.Then again I like the GB-player too. Decissions, decissions.???

I traded my GBA for an Sp and never once regretted it. Being able to play games without having to find the perfect angle for that reflective screen is a godsend. Playing in the dark, recharageable batteries, and a tiny profile when its folded up seal the deal. The Sp is easily worth the extra $30 bones.
