    If you are looking for the ROM, you can't ask here... And if you want to play GBA games, you'll need either an Ez 3in1 or Ewin... Ez 3in1's are easier to find I would say... Unless you already have a game and don't want a back up.

    Just because a games console is " dead " or no longer selling in the shops it doesn't mean all of a sudden everyone who owns one is going to stop playing !

    Its like the genesis or snes, you can get emulators for them as well as virtual consoles on the ps3/xbox360 & wii but they never feel the same s on the hardware they were meant for, the gba sp is the best for gba games i would imagine with single screen and backlite.

    As for playing gba games i still do and found loads on line iv never played before so always something new to play as is true with all older games consoles and computers which i play the games of regularly.

    regards , paul

    OH and i still play my GB color with zelda some times :-)

    I have a GBA and SP and I love them both and play them both still--just not at the same time [​IMG]. I also have a DSPhat [​IMG]

    I play RPG's/Sims and side scrollers on the GBAsp, as those are the only games that I had for the system and I didnt know about GBA homebrew back then--I thought flash carts were ONLY used for Roms--oh, to be young and naive.

    GBA Micros are actually very good for travel because they are tiny as fuck and you can carry one wherever you go. Along with a cart like the Ezflash IV and a 2GB miniSD, you can carry hundreds of games around in a tiny little device. [​IMG]

    I still play my GBASP Brighter because it's more nice than playing on the DS, with that black frame...

    I finished Boktai 3 some days ago. Great game, and there are a lot more which I still have to play.

    Seconded; I don't feel like such an idiot on the bus playing on something the size of a mobile phone [​IMG] And considering it cost 1/3rd of the price of a DS I'm less worried about getting it nicked.

    I am currently finishing up Rhythm Tengoku on GBA and I just ordered a copy of the Famicom Mini version of Kid Icarus which should arrive by the end of the week.

    I'm actually beefing up my GBA collection right now but I'm mainly sticking to buying the Japanese versions (because the JP boxes look better than the NA versions when they are imprisoned on my shelf).

    I lost all of the boxes for my older GBA games so they are just sitting in a tin at the moment, they look kind of pathetic actually.

    I really wish I had a gba micro for buses etc. Especially if I had a flashcart in it.

    the actual device or games? There are plenty of reasons to use a gba if you don't have a flash card, namely every gb/gbc game out there
