    What was the color and game/s that you had? Mine was a clear purple GBA with Super Mario Advance and Sonic Advance. I thought it was the coolest thing ever hearing clear voices, the graphics, sound, and etc. from a Game Boy system. It was like a portable SNES without the X/Y buttons!

    I remember it like it was yester-decade...

    It was a pretty solid purple one and I had no games for it... I would just play my GBC games on it.

    My first GBA game was actually Super Mario Bros 2, the Doki Doki Panic clone thing.

    Transparent pink GBA and the first game I played on it was Klonoa. I don't remember exactly which Klonoa though. My mom played a lot of GBC Tetris on it.

    I had the purple GBA with Poke Saphire. I still remember playing it on the weekends whenever I woke up(8-9 am). I still have it but sadly the d-pad is unresponsive. Its like a brother to me but in a deep sleep.

    Wow.........it's amazing, there was a post similar to this but for the DS a few days ago, and my answer was a white DS and Castlevania DS.

    Guess what the GBA days were like ?
    I swear I got a white GBA and .....Castlevania CoTM........talk about deja vu ( or whatever it's spelled ) !!!

    I remember doing so many 'jobs' for my parents towards getting a GBA like washing the car, extensive gardening, painting a shed, for about half my summer holidays when I was 9.

    I got a solid Purple GBA, with Rayman Advance.

    silver GBA SP with tatoo graphics on it. First game was one of the harry potters. Not the 3D one but another one. Loved playing it.
