    Any movie-game cash-in (except Cars, it's decent).
    They're usually all crap.

    Other than that, I could name a huge list of platformers that really suck.

    Hmm...

    Dexter's Lab
    Star Wars: Flight of the Falcon
    Beyblade
    Gekido Advance
    list goes on.. [​IMG]

    I don't think you could say that Pokemons are the worst game on GBA, maybe you don't like them, but it's surely not the worst based on that..

    I think that Taxi game was pretty bad (it was fun, but extremely low framerate and bad graphics killed that game totally) and Power Rangers - S.P.D. is awful game.....

    Oh, I don't know - the OP wanted the worst games, and I certainly rank anything Pokemon on GBA to be amongst the worst games in existence. Mind you, I really detest these "franchise-style" series where the publisher's main aim is to get kids to part with their cash without putting any effort into game development at all. As games go, Pokemon is up there with Barbie in the crapness stakes.

    Well, I understand what's your point....But Fire Red is actually a remake of GB Pokemon Red, and that is really a great game....although I agree that they totally killed the game with all those editions and almost no new stuff and development, only new pokemons added..
    I find Fire Red great game no matter what....

    crazy taxi horrendious 3D graphics, james bond nightfire, it had awful graphics too megaman battle network challenge, it's the same game with diffrent titles with each release and it's boring as hell, i agree with pokemon, i enjoyed playing ruby as that was my first gba Pokemon game, but after that it just got boring as it was the same thing over and over again.

    Toni Plutonij you shouldn't flame Dunny just because he has a negative opinion about pokemon, not everyone likes the series.

    Worst commercial GBA game I've played... probably the teenage mutant ninja turtle games by konami, considering they made such greats in the past as the nes adaption of the arcade game and turtles 3, I was disgusted they didn't let characters move up and down in addition to side to side. It was acceptable in gb days, but come on, the gba is capable of more.

    Worst Homebrew I've played, probably one of the tetris clones.

    I think I found one of the worst gba game I EVER played in my life.

    Hardcore Pinball... Damn what a piece of ...!

    It's ugly, slow and the ball dynamic is ridiculous. Moreover, tables really sucks...
    Don't give a try guys. I mean it.

    I liked these.
    I don't think it's fair to say Chip Challenge was bad just because Battle Network was great, you know?
    What was wrong with xXx though?
