    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.

    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.

    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 [​IMG]

    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.

    It does help me when I run out of video games to play.

    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 [​IMG]

    No not really.

    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! [​IMG]

    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.

    I love 'em, I read 'em. I skipped almost all GBA games (played almost only PC) so this is my chance.

    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. [​IMG]
