    So I was recently cleaning up some junk I have in storage and I came across my old gameboy color. Also found 3 games in the same box; pokemon card game, batman animated series, and killer instinct. Other than the pokemon game, the others are regular gameboy games.

    So I started playing around with it again and found it very fun. I want to get a few more color titles and I want to know what where the best games released for the gameboy color?

    So far I am interested in buying:

    Wario land 3
    Pokemon silver or gold (what's difference anyways?)

    Well the differences between gold and silver are that there are some pokemon you can only get in one or the other

    I suggest Warlocked, Crystalis, Bionic Commando: Elite Forces, and Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Seasons.

    Ahhh ok. I vaguely remember that now that you mention it. Last time I got into pokemon was over 10 years ago :lol  when there was only 151. Plus I found a whole box full of cards from the first run, which I have no idea there worth. Just going to put the lot of them on ebay.

    I liked Super Mario Deluxe and Metal Gear Solid. Shadowgate was fun too but you can only really go through it once.

    I enjoyed Super Mario DX and Bionic Commando probably the most. My favorite older gameboy games though are Metroid 2, Mario Land 2, and Link's Awakening.

    Watch out for dead batteries. The cartridge contains a battery that stores save data. Some games like Pokemon are shot out and can't save no more unless you know how to replace them.

    List to get IMO
    Pokemon silver
    Zelda links awakening, oracle of seasons, oracle of ages.

    The Zelda games, the second generation Pokémon games, Power Quest, Mario Tennis, Crystalis, Donkey Kong Country (if you don't have access to the SNES version anyway), Final Fantasy Adventure (misnamed, actually part of the Mana series; Children of Mana for GBA is a [superior] remake, but this one's still fun), Frogger, Game & Watch Gallery 2, Kirby's Dream Land 2, Mega Man Xtreme 1 & 2, and Metroid 2.
    I think that covers my favourites.

    If you can pick up any of the Dragon Warrior Monsters titles, I suggest it. 1 and 2 are absolutely fantastic, and long, deep romps through monster collectin'.

    But yeah, Wario Land 3 is amazing, and Silver/Gold will forever be the best Pokemon games.

    Link's Awakening DX is great, though truthfully, I didn't have many Gameboy games, despite playing the crap out of the system. I just had a few games that were ultra hard and ultra rewarding.
