2 Metroid Fusion

This and Zero Mission are reasons enough to get a GBA.

Perfect spot!

It's a fantastic game for the GameBoy Advance. I've played through it several times. - sitebender

Let's Find Pokemon! Ruby and Sapphire is obviously better! LOL!

3 The Legend of Zelda - The Minish Cap

That game is amazing I expect that is going to be at least top 3


Awesome - VideoGamefan5

4 Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga

This game is an underrated gem that all Mario fans should get. Good gameplay, unique and interesting controls a good enough storyline and a blast to play! - Seventies-Music-Fan

One of the best soundtracks and game in the series

This game is amazing!

Can't believ eI'm voting agaisnt firered and emerald. I like a link to the past better but never played the game boy advanced version. Never even knew that their was one. This game is amazing the weakest of the Mario and Luigi games but pavedt the road for the rest to build upon it evvery time a new game comes out it combines something knew with the unique gameplay introduced here. THEY HAVE FURY! - HeavyDonkeyKong

5 Let's Find Pokemon! Ruby & Sapphire

Let's Find Pokemon? Laugh out loud - N64Dude

Let's find Pokemon? Not sure why it says this, but Ruby and Sapphire were amazing with the enhanced graphics, amazing storyline, and just generally addicting battles.

no surprise pokemon games for the Gameboy powned! Still like Warioware though

Let's Find WHAT! - VideoGamefan5

6 Pokemon: Emerald Version

Emerald is the best Pokemon game ever in my opinion. It deserves #1.

It was such an addicting game. I have put thousands of hours into this game.

What? Why is pokemon emerald so low? It should at least be top 2 or something

Way better than FireRed. This game has way more things to do postgame. Wait, you want evidence?
- Catch Mewtwo
- Battle Facility
- Sevii Islands
- Catch legendary dogs

-Catch Groudon
- Catch kyogre
- Catch Regis
-Battle Frontier
- Johto Starter
�" Catch Rayquaza

Side note, rayquaza can be caught just before E4 at level 70, but due to its level and how hard it is to Catch I added it anyway.

7 WarioWare: Twisted!
8 Mother 3

Amazing game great visuals and sounds. Awesome cast of characters.

LOL! "Come on, Reggie! Give us Mother 3! " We may never get a physical copy of the game, but maybe we'll get it on eShop.

I haven't played this game until recently and I wasn't the biggest fans of Earthbound Beginnings and Earthbound, but this game is one of the best jrpg experiences of my life.

This is an anazing game that should come world wide. It took me a month for this game to come in the mail but it was worth it. It had good music, good gameplay, and you can run in this game! Mother 3 and Pokémon R/S/E are my favorite GBA games.

9 Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3

First videogame I ever had

Easily the best platformer ever made! Very original!

10 Advance Wars

After having it recommended to me for years, I finally gave in and played it. This is a fantastic turn based strategy, I was just a bit turned off by the cartoon visuals until I played it. It's so good it didn't need a sequel. - sitebender

IGN placed it at #4. Its reasonable!

Crappy FireRed is #1? This should be #1! When I played this, I had no idea how they could fit so much content in a GameBoy Advance. The Field Training, Campaign, VS, Map Design, War Room, everything! - GodFlowey

The Contenders

11 Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

This game was a great boom to the Castlevania franchise, not only the gameplay and graphics, but also the soundtracks. Even IGN rated it the second best game on GBA.

Honestly I like this more than Symphony of the Night. That's a testament to this game's quality.

Deserves top 3 in the least. This game is amazing, I would be fine if it was number 1

This game SHOULD BE at least in top 10!

12 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

The best gba game

Anthonybecerra831 picks his nose!

"Anthonybecerra831 picks his nose! "
So do you, but I'm not judging you! #shotsfired

13 Wario Land 4

This game is a legend. - xandermartin98

My childhood!

The game may just be pixels and the music is just beeps, this is the definition of my childhood and I have no idea why it’s in the 14 spot.

14 Metroid: Zero Mission

There is nothing in the gaming world like Samus Aran kicking alien butt. And in this remake of the original Metroid, there's no shortage of BUTT KICKING AWESOMENESS!

Sadly, there's no shortage of easiness either. - xandermartin98

The finest example of how to do a remake.

Probably the best if not one of the best Metroids out there. - sitebender

15 Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2
16 Sonic Advance

I smell over-ratings...

One of the gba game I played the most on this console

17 Kirby Nightmare in Dream Land
18 Astro Boy: Omega Factor
19 Kirby and the Amazing Mirror

Amazing Kirby game!

My favorite kirby game

The top favorite Nintendo game of me, Kieran Stark (aka The Ultimate Daredevil).

It has so many free spaces, very creative soundtrack, such powerful graphics, extremely badass characters and whatnot.

20 Super Mario World
21 Gunstar Super Heroes
22 Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2

About as good as Skateboarding gets on a small screen.

This was a very fun game for the GBA - dragon13304

23 Fire Emblem

This is damn underrated

Fire emblem? 29? WHYYY

24 Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3

This should higher in this list, it is basically a 16 bit version of the one of the best Mario games, super Mario bros 3

25 Golden Sun
26 Pokemon - Sapphire Version
27 Drill Dozer
28 Yoshi's Island

Cool Game - VideoGamefan5

29 Mario Kart: Super Circuit

Should be the Best

30 Advance Guardian Heroes
31 Classic Nes Series: Metroid
32 Super Mario Bros. 3

Why is this not number 1. this game set a world recordfor bestselling game... In 2005. - rainboX

33 Metal Slug Advance
34 Castlevania: Circle of the Moon
35 Sonic Battle
36 Megaman Zero 3

One of the best Mega Man games ever. Brilliant story, fantastic soundtrack and most importantly, amazing gameplay, with some of the best controls and physics in a platformer game, power-up systems honed to perfecion, great stage designs and variety and a plethora of fantastic bosses, amongst which stands the final boss, one of the best in gaming. I highly suggest anyone remotely interested in 2d platformers to try out Mega Man Zero 3. You won't regret it.

Best game ever. Period. The series is so amazing. MMZ series > Megaman as a whole.

37 Dragon Ball Z Supersonic Warriors

My favorite game

38 Crash Bandicoot 2: N-Tranced
39 Mario Golf Advance Tour

The best Golf game I have ever played.

40 Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories

This should be 1 fools

Just like the best game ever for gba it's includes magic action fighting and lots more weapons tools

41 Max Payne
42 Motocross Maniacs Advance
43 Konami Krazy Racers
44 Final Fantasy VI

Seriously, why is this not AT LEAST in the top ten? This is by far one of the greatest games I've ever played story wise. This and final fantasy seven are ON PAR with eachother, guys. This needs to be higher on the list.

45 Sonic Advance 3
46 Donkey Kong Country
47 Megaman Zero
48 Mega Man Battle Network 4: Blue Moon
49 Megaman Zero 2
50 Finding Nemo

I love this game
