    Anyone want to put their two cents in for best GB and GBC games?

    Obvious choices are:

    LoZ: Links Awakening
    LoZ: Oracle or Ages and Time
    Tetris DX
    Wario Land 3

    Less obvious recommendation:

    Gargoyle's Quest

    Anything else?

    I wouldn't call Wario obvious or those sketchy third party Zelda's either, but I do agree completely with Gargoyle's Quest.

    Here's others that need note that aren't so obvious like both Mario Land games. Radar Mission, F-1 Race, Final Fantasy Adventure, Blades of Steel, Revenge of the Gator, and on GBC Dragon's Lair, Warlocked, Cannon Fodder, and Blaster Master.

    I could go on but why load up a huge post and I'll leave the duh stuff (mega man, kirby, castlevania, etc to someone else.)

    In the OP, by obvious I meant largely that those tend to be on many "best of" lists, and it certainly wasn't meant as a full or comprehensive list.

    Especially I encourage people to post games that either 1) hold up well after multiple console generations have proceeded GB/GBC, or 2) might NOT be on the more common "best of" lists.

    I feel Gargoyle's Quest definitely falls in both categories.

    I'd also add GB Qix.

    Has anyone tried Survival Kids? Is it any good?

    Pokemon: The Card Game was probably the most fun I had on my Bung Doctor64 GBC flashcart.

    Inside a Pokeball.
    My favorite has got to be gold/silver.
    I practically grew up playing that game!

    You can play GB/GBC games anywhere.

    From Slot-1 you need Lameboy, which is probably the easiest way to go. And from Slot-2 you need Goomba Color which converts a batch of GB/GBC games into a single launch-able GBA file.

    In my experience Lameboy has a few problems here and there (original Qix for example), whereas I haven't encountered any problems yet with Goomba.

    Playing Tomb Raider as recommended above -- this game is so damn hard to play! Am I ever going to get the hang of it? It seems not worth it!!

    Presently also playing -- and enjoying -- Trip World and Wendy: Every Witch Way.

    It's pretty obvious to say Pokemon Gold and Silver. It's better than the originals and it still holds up after all these years. Pokemon is simply put the pinnacle of handheld gaming, except for maybe Tetris.

    Toki Tori is excellent and one of the two big sleeper hits of the GBA (with Shantae being the other one).

    Then there's other obvious games like Zelda, Mario, etc.

    It may be cliché, but really, I think very few games came remotely close to being as revolutionary as Pokémon Silver (and Gold). That game blew me away. We got a working calendar, a working clock, a phone system, a radio system, a beautiful pokédex, great graphics, 100 new monsters (and they didn't suck like the other 200 that came afterwards)... it made Red/Blue/Yellow look pathetic in comparison, even though they were fantastic games.

    So, yeah... Pokémon Silver FTW.

    I thought Azure Dreams was quite nice also, but much, much more often my Pokémon cartridge would be in use rather than it.
