I've been waiting for ages for GBA games to start coming down in price. Maybe one of these days it'll happen, now that DS has been released into the wild.

What should I be looking for? (I hardly have any so far)

I'm thinking:

Sword of Mana
FF 1+2
Zeldas
Maybe Golden Sun

Anything else?

Mario and Luigi is superb... if you're after some quick handheld games (as in pick up and play games) I recommend strongly Mario Vs. Donkey Kong and Wario Ware (Twisted is out in a month or so).

Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga is very very good... not as great as Paper Mario 2, but very good in a similar way.

Super Mario World is also a must!

Oh and Pokemon... get Emerald now that is out.

I imagine the SP will drop in price when the Micro is released.

I always liked the look of Need For Speed Underground for the GBA, but I could only find it for something ridiculous like 25.

I seriously doubt it'll be any good, but I just want a racer.

Mario Kart for sure! Even if you finish it which is unlikely you'll go back for more again and again and again. The best think about GBA games is they usually contain the original SNES game if they're based on them you just have to play then to a finish if you want to unlock the original SNES game. Mario Kart, Mario World, Zelda you get 2 for the price of 1!

Indeed, they are awesomeness.

When the hell is WarioWare Twisted coming out?

Cheers dudes.

I guess I'll start with Zeldas and Golden Suns, leave Mana and FF, and then pick up some others.


So Sword of Mana definitely sucks? I heard good things about Secret Of...
