    Castlevania - any of them, they're all good

    Final Fight One - on my list to get
    Fire Emblem - yet another good strategy game
    Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones - on my list to get
    Golden Sun - very good RPG

    Castlevania Circle of the Moon and Arai of sorrow are both good games. I'd stay way from Harmony of dissonance though. It was kind of weak by comparison.

    Sonic Advance 1-3 are all fun (though sonic advance 3 is kind of annoying with how long it takes to get chaos emeralds)

    Gunstar Super Heroes (classic side scrolling blow the Hell out of everything game.)

    Astro Boy the omega factor (great gameplay, great story, great game period. GET IT)

    Iridon 2 (This is a solid shooter and is pretty cheap too.)

    Zelda: A link to the past (a port of the SNES classic that defined what Zelda should be.)

    Zelda: The minish cap (an excellent 2D zelda. A little short but what's there is absolute masterpiece.)

    I will mention that Golden Sun, though on a handheld, is one of the best made and biggest RPGs I have ever played. Totally 150% worth it for both carts. The graphics, the music, the gameplay, all combine to make a wonderful game. Remember though that it spans two cartridges, Golden Sun and Golden Sun: Lost Age.

    It saddens me that even the guy with the Zero avatar hasn't listed the Megaman Zero series yet. I love it. Solid Megaman-style gameplay, great 2D graphics, excellent character designs, and a story that you can actually care about.

    He already mentioned MMZ, but I will state that it is one of the coolest Megaman games ever. MMZ has routinely delivered everything I love about MMX when it was a good series. The game has the perfect amount of difficulty. It keeps success within your grasp, but makes you work for it. That and Zero is totally :rock  . Nuff said.

    Huh. First time I've heard anyone rip on HoD.

    In any case, I disagree. It is easy, but then so is Aria of Sorrow. I think all 3 GBA Castlevanias kick ass and are worth getting (though good luck finding CotM).

    Coincidentally, Harmony and Aria were just re-released in a convenient 2-for-1 cartridge. If you don't already have them, you no longer have an excuse. :wink: 

    Speaking of 2-for-1's: just picked up the Sonic Advance/Sonic Pinball Party combo cart. Good stuff. I remember the pinball cart getting panned on release, but it's actually pretty good. And Sonic Advance is good old Sonic, with 4 characters and a new move or three.

    Damn, everybody has listed pretty much everything good, but theres still a few looked over gems.

    Kuru Kuru Kururin - Solid puzzler with a neat concept. It's never been released in the US though.

    Kururin Paradise - Sequel to the above game.

    Tactics Ogre: The Knights of Lodis - Deep storied strategy game, much better then the horrible FFTA.
