OGPP - Do you read GBAtemp Recommends?

QUOTE said:
GBAtemp Recommends! is a popular weekly magazine feature in which the GBAtemp staff recommend classic Game Boy Advance titles. The project was launched on October 22nd, 2008.

Each week, the staff post a new issue with a new title that we recommend you play! The selected titles are the best of the best from the GBA library. They may be popular, well-known game franchises or they may be those obscure sleeper hits that you may have missed! One things for sure though; they're all worth a play through!

This project aims to share the word about great GBA games many have never touched before. The effort will hopefully spark some interest for the great ol' GBA.

In the issues, we provide lots of information, screenshots, gameplay videos, and helpful links for the GBAtemp Recommends! GBA title. Users are able to discuss the title in the topic - where they can share their opinions, tips, advice, and challenges!

After we have exhausted the GBA library we will move onto another system such as the Nintendo DS.

But, the question is do YOU read and enjoy these articles? Or do you pass them up? Please tell us your reasons, we'd like to hear the thoughts on it from our members.

I love GBAtemp Recomends! It's made me play some very awesome GBA games that I had not heard of or had never really showed interest in.I like how there's a screenshot and commentary of the games.Keep up the good work guys.

I read and enjoy reading it. It gives me a feeling similar to standing near to a fireplace while discussing about old recommendable books, lol (seriously). However, I don't download every game you recommend and I don't enjoy all of those that I download, but only for reading the "gbatemp recommends" articles, it's worth it IMO.

TBH I just glance over it. I really don't read it. I already downloaded the GBA games I wanted and I'm into playing other games right now.

Well, although you guys already know my opinion, to I'll add it here and make it "official"..

I absolutely LOVE the idea of having GBAtemp recommends! And even tho I knew many of recommended games, it actually brought nostalgia and that good feeling of joy while reading so I always play those recommended games again..
Besides some of the games I never heard of, so in my opinion it very useful too..

I'd really like it to be continued, but if people don't read it, it's really too much of a job

I don't really read it, but I do skim it to see what games you guys recommend and if its something I've though about I'll read further.


I'm the same way. I check and see if it's the type of thing I'd be interested in playing.

I would be interested in seeing this expanded to other classic platforms, such as SNES.

I prefer the essentials list...only because I like the franchises list on it a bit more -.-'''
But it's nice for those who want something innovative for its time

Yeah, i read it and play the game if it interests me. Or if it's a game i've already played it makes me play it again for a short time.

I love it!!! Tried every recommended game so far. My Favorite was Boktai it brought a whole new series into my life. I was mostly a console and PC gamer, so i know nothing about gba games until I got my DSLite and M3real Perfect bundle. I did look thru the GBA essentials but the just dont hit the spots like GBAtemp Recommends!

It's awesome! I never really got much into the GBA (all though i did have one). But I was one of those, Pokemans, etc. The only good games I actually grabbed for it were Golden Sun 1/2. but I realize it's an awesome handheld. This helps me find those awesome games. Loving Another World, but I didn't haven't had time to finish it.

Anyways, I do indeed read it.

If it is a game I do not immediately recognise I will read it, if I do recognise it I will tend to add them to the list of tabs to read when I get around to it.
I do more often than not recognise the games (I spent ages chasing down the good games from the GBA)

I voted no, I do read it but I'm not really that interested in it. If you had another option that said "Yes, but I'm not that interested in it" I'd have voted that.
