Backlighting a GBA: GB, GBC, & GBA game suggestions?

Postby Delanofilms » 20 Mar 2015, 18:52

So I decided to backlight an original GBA. Taking the screen from the 2nd gen GBA SP and putting it in a glorious purple GBA with an adapter. All the beauty of the super bright SP+ screen, the form factor of the original GBA, and a real 3.5mm headphone jack.

I now need to fill out my library over the spring and summer. Aside from the obvious Pokemon, Mario, and Zelda, what games would you recommend?

Mario Kart, and I liked the dragonball z games but I'm not sure if they are good objectively.

* Dragon Warrior III (GBC)
* Final Fantasy Legends series (GBY)
* River City Ransom EX (GBA)

* Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (GBA)
* Breath of Fire / II (GBA)
* Sword of Mana (GBA)
* Klonoa series (GBA)

Wariolands were good. I prefer them to Mario personally.

Pokemon Trading Card Game was enjoyable.

But since you have the online version now, it's kinda obsolete. Unless you want to play it vanilla.

The Pokemon TGC for GBC couldn't be less obsolete. How else am I gonna listen to these AMAZING tunes?
