    I've played the obvious choices so far, but am looking for some more hidden gems. There are over 2000 GBA titles and I don't want to go through them 1 by 1. I've never owned a GBA, so I have no idea what's good and what's not.

    Here's a list of DS titles I've played so far.

    Castlevania - Dawn
    Ouendan
    Cooking Mama
    Jump Superstars
    Brain Age/Big Brain
    Burnout Legends
    Dotstream
    Dial Hel
    Lost in Blue
    Magnetica
    Mario 3 on 3 (more like 1 on 3, useless teammates).
    Super Mario Bros
    Mario Kart (boring)
    Metroid
    Mr Driller
    Phoenix Wright
    Trauma Center
    True Swing Golf
    Tak
    Viewtiful Joe
    Trace Memory

    There are others I've played, but those are currently on the DS. As for the GBA, I have Zelda - Minish Cap (freaking great), Megaman Battle Network, Castlevanias, and a few others.

    Too many choices, so very little time.

    well, on the DS side you would do well to check out both Rub Rabbit games, The Mario and Luigi RPG (can't recall exact name) Wario Touched, and probably Resident Evil.

    I have been out of the GBA for a little while but Drill Dozer is excellent. Also Guru Logic Champ. [​IMG]

    Thanks for those. RE isn't my style, I really don't like it. Rub Rabbit is really bizzare, but I'll continue to play it because it's unique. Wario Touched is like Rub Rabbit, but far more annoying, I may have to pick that up again.

    oh yes, the "micro" game type games can get really annoying if you are not to into those so if run rabbits annoy you at all or if wario left a bad impression, it will probably not get any better. I sort of punish myself with games sometimes. you know, try to get and do everything in a game, even if I stopped having fun. if you like platform games then the 2 Mario games on the DS are worth playing (maybe even Princess Peach??)

    Tetris got old and boring on my old oringinal Gameboy, not a fan anymore. I think I tried playing Advanced Wars, but couldn't figure out what the hell I was doing [​IMG] I'll give it another go since people seem to like it.

    Thanks.

    Stafy 4 and Super Princess Peach are both VERY solid platformers. (peach you need to just pass the first two worlds, after that it is so much better)

    you should definitly try out the bit generations series. I believe this is what gaming shoudl be. take a single idea and make it really enjoyable and fun the play.

    Yeah, I am. Sound Voyager is tough after a while, and I can't seem to figure out how to go to different branches, maybe I gotta beat the one I'm on. Definitely need headphones to play that one.

    For GBA, I thought Rebel Star: Tactical Command was choice.
