    What about pokemon red rescue team?

    I'm hungry, I feel like unicorn.

    Final Fantasy Tactics is the only game on this list I have a problem with. It was just disappointing on many levels. Now, it wasn't a bad game, just that it came nowhere near the experience of the original FFT. Gameplay was solid enough but a huge part of the original game was the story (convoluted though it was at times) and the premise in this sequel was a joke.

    Golden Sun high on the list? Check. Carry on.
  • nomis - March 5, 2014 2:50 p.m.

    Klanoa is pretty awesome. Best/only amazon game purchase yet
  • JMarsella09 - March 5, 2014 1:55 p.m.

    Damn straight.

    is there a best SNES games list like this one? I tried searching the site
  • RushLight - March 5, 2014 1:17 p.m.

    Really I feel like a better way to put it would be to say that its simply aged poorly. It was (probably, I can't say for sure as I wasn't even born when it came out) quite revolutionary when it came out but its sequels have refined and improved upon its mechanics so much that going back to it just makes it feel archaic and well, bad.

    That feel when I've played every game on this list (haven't beat them all, but played em). So many good games. The GBA was probably my favorite hand held, nostalgia aside. The DS was pretty damn great too, but it just didn't have the same variety in it's library (too much shovel ware IMO). PSP is damn awesome too, but that's in a separate league.

    Ninja Five o is definitely one of the most underrated, unknown games of all time. Seriously awesome game, and I'd put it even higher than 33 still, but hey, it made the list, so taht's good enough for me, at least someone else remembers. Also, aside from Pokemon s/r/e, I really can't argue with the top 5, the cream of the crop, those games are.

    Disappointed you didn't include Double Dragon Advance. The original is the grandaddy of arcade fighting games, ported over many consoles over the years. But the GBA version brought the original concept right up to date adding a variety of new moves, weapons and levels. It had a brilliant 'pick-up-and-fight' level of addiction & replayability, & the option to play 2 player coop brought it to perfection.
  • winner2 - February 14, 2013 1:03 p.m.

    I'm glad R/S/E were in the top 10. I havn't played practically any of these though, Pokemon was enough for me back then.
  • BladedFalcon - February 14, 2013 3:58 p.m.

    You are missing out so much.
  • winner2 - February 14, 2013 6:46 p.m.

    Well I'd assume these games might be dirt cheap now, but I have no idea where I left my old SP. If I found it I'd consider getting some of these. Pity too, that was a great little handheld, simple but great.
  • BladedFalcon - February 14, 2013 7:28 p.m.

    Yes it was, and yeah, if you have the time and the money, a lot of these are really worth getting, handhelds are often handwaved as being inferior experiences to their console counterparts, but the truth is that the depth and design of some of these games is just as top notch, if not more than modern AAA games. And personally, I just loved that most of the GBA games used 2D sprites, to me, that graphical style has a charm that no matter how much times passes, it'll never fade.
  • Pruman - February 14, 2013 12:52 p.m.

    Hell yes to Advance Wars being #1. Metroid Fusion was what got me to buy a GBA, but Advance Wars was what made it my favorite handheld platform of all time.
  • minimaxi - February 14, 2013 8:39 a.m.

    I personally think the best castlevania in GBA is circle of the moon. Yes, I've played all of those.
