Top 10 Must Play Gameboy Advance Games


The Top Ten

1 Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow

Out of all the Castlevania games on the GBA Aria of Sorrow has to be the best, adding new gameplay elements better visuals and great soundtrack make it the best of the 3. - egnomac

2 Fire Emblem

The first major Fire Emblem game released in North America and while it borrows RPG elements from other previously released games like Advance Wars it still proved to be a really good RPG game for the GBA. - egnomac

I agree, this game is awesome. But sadly, suffers from having the worst fandom out of any FE game.

3 Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World

Despite being a remake of an old SNES classic it still plays very well its still a pretty good port of the original. - egnomac

4 Pokémon Ruby
5 Wario Ware

Wario Ware is jam packed with countless mini games that require quick timing and reflexes to complete games range from classic Nintendo games to the downright strange. - egnomac

6 Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga

A fantastic RPG with innovative gameplay mechanics and hilarious slapstick humor.

Very unique gameplay staring Mario & Luigi on a hilarious RPG adventure. - egnomac

7 Advance Wars
8 Golden Sun
9 Mario Kart: Super Circuit
10 Sonic Advance

A "Modern" Sonic game that plays almost like the classics. I really enjoyed this game, too.

The Newcomers

? Mother 3

This game doesn’t get as much recognition because it was only released in Japan, but when you play the fan translation you are playing a masterpiece.

The Contenders

11 Wario Land 4
12 Metroid Fusion

The first Metroid game featured on the GBA while short it was still lots of fun to play and pretty terrifying with new enemies the SA-X who mimics Samus at full power who appears from time to time as you have to avoid and run from. - egnomac

The SA-X was just terrifying.

13 The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap

One of the most underrated Zelda games ever made which was released near the end of the GBA's lifespan the game has Link using the Minish Cap in order to reach temples and secret areas while not as good as other Zelda games on the handheld its still worth checking out. - egnomac

14 Drill Dozer
15 Pokemon Emerald

If you're a hardcore Pokemon fan, this game is a must have! It beats Ruby and Sapphire in my opinion, mainly because you can catch not only Kyogre and Rayquaza or only Groudon and Rayquaza, but all 3 of them! It's just plain awesome!

16 River City Ransom
17 Sonic Battle
18 Pokemon Firered
19 Metroid: Zero Mission
20 Pokemon Sapphire
21 Pokemon Leafgreen
22 Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon

An awesome remake of Legacy of Great Intention with better graphics, more features and even a few new characters not found in the Sega Genesis original.

23 F-Zero GP Legend
24 F-Zero Maximum Velocity
25 Warioware: Twisted!
26 Ice Climber
