    I think we can all agree, if you have any way to play GameBoyAdvance games and you don't at least try Golden Sun, you're a fool [​IMG] .

    RPG wise I'd go with Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga and Zelda Minish Cap followed by some Alien Homonid shooting action with a side serving of Kirby - Nightmare In Dreamland related platform antics.

    If you are a greedy type of guy then for seconds I'd recommend a fat slice of F Zero (although I can't remember which one, one is crap - the other isn't) which you could wash down with lashings of Mario Vs Donkey Kong.

    Finally, as you are slovenly leaving the gaming feast you could fill up a doggie bag with Gradius Generations, Street Fighter II and the oft mentioned Golden Sun

    you can have a look here (and add your own games if you like). It hasn't been up for long but you can still find a few games that many members have so far voted for.

    People hate Golden Sun? Blashpemy! I seriously don't know a SINGLE person who has played any Golden Sun and not liked it, no matter what their preference in gaming.

    Suggested remedy:-

    1. Load Golden Sun onto your GBA playing device of choice.
    2.Play for an hour, and check if you are enjoying it.
    3.If not, bang your head with said device 100 times (or until concussion, whichever comes first).
    4. Repeat from step 2.

    That way, even if you don't enjoy it at least you will beat it [​IMG]

    same here. I thought Golden Sun was booooring. I played for at least 4 hours, and couldn't take the slow-pacedness of the dialog and cutscenes.

    And I love me some jrpgs... I don't know why golden sun didn't cut it.

    I would have a hard time naming 10 as I haven't really played the RGB games. If you can't skip the intro or the game has 15 minutes of plot before it starts it usually gets switched off. Anyway here goes

    1. Double Dragon
    2. IK+
    3. Wing
    4. Super Puzzle Fighter 2

    Probably a few more but none comes to mind at the moment.

    In no order what so ever and just off the top of my head, if you are lloking for suggestions I could probably do about 50. RPG wise owing to the drought on the DS (and just about everywhere else) I have been playing some of the Japanese backlog of RPGs I never played, while a good bunch I am glad have not been translated I would dain to say at least 50% are of a high quality.
    Advance wars 2
    Tetris Advance (the Japanese version by minna no soft as opposed to the tetris worlds game)
    Eggo mania
    Any of the "tactics" games.
    Phantasy Star collection, port though it may be it still has PS2.
    Megaman Battle Network (any)
    Ultimate Brain/Card games
    Mr Driller, either 2 or A (2 is action, A is more puzzle based)
    Super Robot Taisen (they are all pretty good).
