There doesn't seem to be an [Essentials] topic for the GB/GBC, so I thought I'd start one while I'm patiently waiting for Dwedit to finish porting Goomba Color to the DS.



Please post a list of all of the GB/GBC games that you found to be exceptionally good. Feel free to mention games that someone else has already listed (more votes will put a game higher on the list), but please don't vote for the same game more than once.



If you have already posted some titles, feel free to add a new post if you have more games for the list. Please do not edit your posts to add more games, I won't notice the new additions if you do that.



Games will be sorted by number of votes first, and alphabetically second.

Also if homebrew is included Hungry Are The Dead is as good as most commercial titles.

There may be some I missed though, but its amazing how many great games there was for it, personally I think the GBC is the best Nintendo handheld. Also amazing how many of Nintendo's franchises didn't make it to the GBC.

-Pokemon (red, gold, yellow,...)
Please explicitly mention every game you want on the list. I've never been interested in Pokemon myself, so I don't even really know how many Pokemon games there are, or which ones are equivalent to each other (like Diamond & Pearl for the DS).

The same goes for all game franchises. Any game not explicitly mentioned won't get on the list.


-that tennis game (forgot the actual name)
I can't do anything with this. I need specific titles.

I lost my copy of Daikatana, which is a shame I loved that game and its one of those forgotten classics that nobody mentions maybe because of the horrible N64/PC game.
