    Post your essential (favourite) GameBoy Advance games in this topic and they'll be added to the list, for others to refer to when deciding which game to play.

    If there is a game already on the list that you think should not be there let me know and it'll have a point removed (so if there are more negative than positive votes then the game will be removed entirely off the list).

    You may also recommend some more games in a future post but: (1) you must not repeat any game you have already mentioned and (2) you must make a new post, do NOT edit your previous post as it may not be seen.

    The old list can be found HERE

    I used to have the game "Army Men" for GBC. But I just found out there are a few parts for GBA too.
    They are called "Army Men: Operation Green", "Army Men: Advance" and "Army Men: Turf Wars"
