Top Ten Best GameBoy Games

The Top Ten

1 Pokemon Yellow

My vote made this and Golden Sun tied up. Next person to come here vote for pokemon yellow. - Flyingcobra

Same as guy before, I played it hours on end, but now soulsilver version is stealing its thunder by making your pokemon follow you

Good game. If you heard about the lavender town syndrome you had been trolled. Don't be afraid it's just a urban legend.

I spent 180 hours on my save file

2 Tetris

The most popular game of all time should be #1!

Tetris is GameBoy. - sitebender


3 The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening

Its everything you love from Link to the Past wrapped into GameBoy with a twist of Mario to make it feel fresh. - sitebender

Its everything you loved from Link to the Past, but on the small screen. - sitebender

Best adventure on the gameboy

4 Kirby's Dream Land

It's a fun game that you can play over and over again even though it's short. It appeals to both beginners and experienced players. And it's soundtrack is awesome (even though there would be better music in later games).

Awesome game

5 Super Mario Land

My favorite platform game, once mastered you can complete it in 20 minutes, but it's still fun and full of hidden extras.

Love this game

6 Golden Sun: The Lost Age

It was a tie between this and Pokemon Yellow (which they should remake)

what this is gameboys golden child

7 Metroid Fusion

This game is Dead Space before Dead Space became a thing.

8 Pokemon Red Version

My first gameboy game. I still play it. Pokemon never gets old, You can't get bored with it.

The game that taught me how to read and what started Pokemon. Still pretty amazing to this day. - Acdcdanny

First Pokemon game and the best Pokemon game everything from that pixelated black and white art to that classic old music - Red26473

I love this game! I got through all 8 gyms and I beat the elite four. Then I caught Mewtwo with the master ball! My Pokemon were Blastoise, Charizard, Gengar, Venasuar, Alazazam and Pidgeot! - rk00006

9 Sonic Advance

This isn't a game boy game, it's gba advance

10 Pokemon Gold

I love how people think Pokemon Yellow was better. - GodFlowey

Generation 2 was defiantly where the series had reached its highpoint. Heck, you could even go to the place red/blue/yellow took place and find new and more exciting things in the world. The gameplay was more fixed and balanced than that of generation 1 and had a variety of ways to care for your Pokémon.

The Contenders

11 Metroid: Zero Mission

love the abilitys in the game and how you get stronger


For some reason I didn't like Pokemon yellow as the others. Still liked it though. this game is amazing. Second best 2d Metroid game behind Super Matroid and best handheld game until Bowser's inside story came around. - HeavyDonkeyKong

12 Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

This needs the No. 1 spot. My favorite game of all times.

Best Gameboy game. The ones above don't compare

13 The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
14 Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land
15 Pokemon Silver

Amazing game, in my opinion better than Red/Blue/Yellow. I prefer this one because I like Lugia.

Lugia is amzing. I LOE HIM SO MUCH. I caught him and went with Bugsy butface and greg heffley on a joureny. - rk00006

16 Catrap
17 Donkey Kong
18 Final Fantasy Legend II
19 Final Fantasy I & II Dawn of Souls
20 Kirby's Dream Land 2
21 Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

I absolutely LOVE this game! It's the only Gameboy Advance game that has survived years of head-scratching gameplay! I remember beating the game, and I tried to skip the credits, and accidentally reset the GBA!

There's no denying it. This is the very best. This game actually made me love the GBA console thing... Pokemon yellow and stuff are good but this is the best emulator game ever.

22 Mario Tennis
23 Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3

This game s so fun

24 Final Fantasy Legend
25 Super Mario World: Super Mario Advance 2
26 Kid Dracula
27 Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3

The best Yoshi platformer, on the best handheld system.

28 Kirby's Block Ball
29 Fire Emblem

I got this by accident

Wutz how can fire emblem not in first one?

I was disatusdufed by the marketing. It showed some suggestive themes through its preformance. As a consumer, I feel oblitgated to act out in my own opinion, and righteously preach my religious beliefs. There are too much crows.

30 Battle Arena Toshinden
31 Final Fantasy Adventure

How is this game so far down? It not only began the Seiken Densetsu series but also inspired the SaGa (Final Fantasy Legend) games. This game deserves to be in the top ten. - wzrd517

32 Picross 2
33 Rayman
34 Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3
35 The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

Of all the gameboy games I've ever played, this one's the best.

36 Trip World
37 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan
38 Sword of Mana

love the storyline and great gameplay

39 Mega Man Zero 2

this is nonstop action through out the whole game

This game sucks so bad. I beat it in 12 minutes. - rk00006

40 Dragon Ball Z: Buu's Fury

Who Does'nt Like Dragon Ball Z!?

41 Mother 3
42 Pokemon Emerald

Greatest Pokemon game EVER! - palkia

Um again gameboy advance


43 Gunstar Super Heroes
44 Metal Warrior
45 Metroid 2: The Return of Samus
46 Tetris Attack
47 Pokemon Blue Version

Just like Pokemon Red The BBEESSTT Pokemon game ever.

hey ya - rk00006

48 Mario Kart: Super Circuit

I can't say it has good graphics (probably worse than 64), but I have a special place for Mario Kart in my heart and I like it to some extent. The selection is ripped right out of MK64 (There could have been room for improvement there like bringing back Koopa or Kamek who was removed from MK64), There are some great tracks like Sunset Wilds, Snow Land, Sky Garden, ETC, but where is the single player battle mode?

The best Mario Kart by far tying with Mario Kart 64!

49 Survival Kids

Addicting as heck
