    I Knew Tetris Was Two And Pokemon Was One.

    Good job putting Red/Blue over GSC it's the superior version, the level balance in GSC is atrocious, add to the fact that for some reason they decided to hide a lot of the new pokemon, why does Falkner use Pidgeotto instead of Noctowl, why does Morty use Gengar instead of Misdreavus, why does Bugsy use Scyther and not something like Ledian or Heracross, it is a mystery.

    --gameboy is definitely the system that proved --great graphics dont = great games --great gameplay is the key

    You know it's nice that you put Red/Blue as the best GB games ever, but Gold/Silver was better in every way possible, and Crystal tops them all.

    I would take out the Pokemon trading card game for Star Saber!
  • supergiraffe - March 5, 2014 9:38 a.m.

    I'd swap the Pokemons. R/B may have been first, but G/S did it best. And I just generall disagree on Tilt and Tumble.
  • SuperSATA - March 5, 2014 1:22 p.m.

    I second that.
  • PlainLikeVanilla - March 5, 2014 9:33 a.m.

    The image for Dragon Warrior Monsters is actually from Dragon Warrior Monsters 2.

    I'm not surprised to see Pokemon Red/Blue be #1 on this list. Not in the least. Everything about the game is undeniably true, especially how it doubled the Game Boy's lifespan. I recall hearing about the series for the first time through a copy of Pokemon Blue that my nextdoor neighbor let me borrow. I took to the concept immediately and put in hundreds of hours into it. That, complimented with the anime (most kids back then watched it religiously), and the card game (still collecting cards as they come!), and Pokemon became a permanent lifestyle for me.

    Mario's Picross is one of my all-time favorites. I played the VC version on my 3DS for over 26 hours -- more than any other game on the console. DW III and Zelda: Oracles/Ages were also epic portable titles.

    What's the "I killed it, might as well eat it." one at the end? Slide 27.
  • llost - April 19, 2012 8:14 a.m.

    it's called Survival Kids, #21 on the following site:
  • machupichu1992 - April 19, 2012 9:31 a.m.

  • SentientSquidMachine - April 17, 2012 8:53 a.m.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for Gameboy, maybe its nostalgia but I remember that game being amazing when I was 6.
  • lemur - March 5, 2014 2:08 p.m.

    Funny thing you mentioned that, and I just finished beating it. It is actually just as awesome as you remember as a kid, so I recommend playing through it again. Though the final Shredder boss is REALLY challenging on hard difficulty.
  • The_Boz - April 17, 2012 8:44 a.m.

    I never really liked Nintendo, found their market to be immature as it still currently is, but I do see the Gameboy as one of the most important console releases of the past couple of decades. The Gameboy popularised hand helds and even though there were many advanced alternatives that came and went, it was this machine that kept the appeal in the technology. Gameboy Tetris is one of the most remembered images I have from when I was much younger. Also, does Charmander (No.26 Pokeman Red/Blue) have breasts?
  • AuthorityFigure - April 17, 2012 6:37 a.m.

    If Pokemon really was so good, it wouldn't need so many updates. This is why I think it only belongs on the list once.
  • CitizenWolfie - April 17, 2012 2:30 a.m.

    Some real good memories there. Super Mario Land 2, the Zelda games, Tetris, Donkey Kong, Pokemon Red/Blue, all of em total classics. Although I agree with a lot of your list, I'm disappointed that you have two pinball games but not Kirby's Pinball Adventure (I think that's what it was called). I thought the multi-layered pinball tables and boss battles were a great spin on the usual game.

    I absolutely loved the Pokemon Cards game for GBC. It was a different take on the Pokemon formula; it was fresh enough while still retaining a good amount of familiarity.
