    Being the retro junkie gamer that I am, I was pretty blown away with Lameboy 0.11. Sure, 0.9 was pretty nice and all, but some GBC games still were too slow and presented some glitches. 0.11 was quite a upgrade, and now lots of GBC games hit the 60FPS mark, the Super GameBoy "windows" are available, you can choose funcions for the X and Y buttons, and tons of other stuff. I was pretty amazed, that was one of the first times I though an emulator got better than the real deal. In fact, I was so excited that I wanted to spread the word of how good this emulator currently is, and also make everyone share some knowledge about good games, as well as games that didn't get much attention on the system. The Game Boy wasn't limited to Pokemon!

    So, stand up! Let's put together a list with some of the best Game Boy/Game Boy Color's games in here! Who's with me? [​IMG]

    Here are some of my reccomendations:
    Metal Gear Solid (a.k.a. Metal Gear: Ghost Babel)
    The last 2D Metal Gear is a hell of a package. Great story, lots of stealth, and one of the most polished GBC titles ever.

    Dragon Warrior I & II
    Dragon Warrior III

    The remakes of the NES classics are some of the best RPGs out there. Just be careful not to let Dragon Warrior III eat your social life!

    Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow/Gold/Silver/Crystal
    In case you lived under a rock for the last 10 years.

    Final Fantasy Adventure
    First in the Seiken Densetsu (Mana) series. Somewhat outdated, but still pretty fun.

    Super Mario Land
    It's Mario!

    Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
    It's Mario! It's Super! It's Deluxe! And it's awesome!

    Donkey Kong
    No, I'm not talking about Donkey Kong Land here. This one was based on the classic arcade version, but with a twist. After the first set of levels, the game turns into a "puzzley action plataformer thingy" were you must get the key and open the door to proceed. Ever played Mario vs. Donkey Kong on the GBA? Guess what, THIS game is the one that started it all!

    Tetris DX
    Too too-doo-doo too-doo-doo too-doo-doo do-do-do-doo

    The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
    The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages
    The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons

    Ah come on, you know those already! [​IMG]

    The prettiest-looking game on the GBC is also the only one out of the tested where I couldn't get a locked 60FPS. Given the game's absurd amount of graphical detail, it ranged between 30-45FPS if I'm not mistaken, and some serious slow when entering the pause menu. The game itself is a hybrid of action-adventure with lots of exploration and hidden stuff - a Metroidvania, as most people know it. It's really good, and here's hoping it will get better support on the future Lameboy versions.

    Well, that wraps it. Got some game suggestions as well? Give 'em away! Counting on you guys [​IMG]

    Since about all games (IMHO) are playable on Lameboy, this list may be very handy for this topic:
