    My favorite for GBA... Super Robot Taisen OG (I and II). Incredible tactics games, worth every last cent. They could have been twice the price and I would have bought them.

    For the classic GB... Megaman V. It's not a re-hash of the NES versions. This is an all new Mega Man. It'll set you back a few Andy Jacksons, but it's WELL worth the purchase.

    Other classic notables are Cosmo Tank, Final Fantasy Adventure, and the one I am playing now: Sword of Hope II.

    I like the both the boxxles a lot.

    Knight's Quest and Spud's Adventure are also pretty neat.

    I like the Advance wars games a lot - but not being able to go into the individual battles at will in the campaign games is kinda frustrating.
    When I come home from a long day in Hell, there's nothing I'd rather reach for than a fire-brewed bottle of Styx Beer. Made from the filthiest waters from our own River Styx. Styx Beer is a third more toxic than any other regular beer. The worst beer - the filthiest beer - the deadliest beer. It's Styx Beer!

    My favorites (all for the GBA):

    - Summon Night: Swordcraft Story (both I and II): both are excellent games -- even better than the new DS version, IMHO. If I was stuck on a desert island and could only have one portable game with me, it would be one of these two (though which one might be hard to decide... ).

    - Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers / Return of the King: I'm a big fan of hack-and-slash games, and they were done surprisingly well, considering the limitations of the platform. Plus, it's not often that you see a movie based game that doesn't suck!

    On the GBC, I might as well mention Shantae too, shouldn't I?

    R-Type DX isn't too bad either.

    I can't think of many other GBC titles I think are worthwhile. Ghouls 'n' Ghosts...clipped screen problems. Perfect Dark...ugh.

    GameSpot gave S-11 a pretty lousy 6.5, but in the Chrono Cross thread I see they gave that game a 10. I think somebody from Shmups Forum played and reviewed S-11, so I'll look at that.

    The Warioland games are sorely neglected examples of platforming brilliance. When oh when are we going to get Super Wario All-Stars?

    Warioware Twisted is also an awesome and unique experience.

    I'll also add Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga.

    Not entirely related, but there's a new Wario Land Wii game coming out soon if you didn't know.

    I thoroughly enjoyed all the re-released NES games on the GameBoy but my top 3 I think would be:

    - Advance Wars
    - Tetris
    - Boxxle

    Original GB:
    Gargoyle's Quest, hands down

    GBC:
    Zelda: Oracle of Ages/Oracle of Seasons

    GBA (in no particular order):
    Boktai
    Ninja Five-O
    Phantasy Star Collection
    Rebelstar: Tactical Command
    ZOE: Fist of Mars
    Car Battler Joe

    I can't narrow the GBA down more than that....I have a lot of games for it. Those are easily my top favorites tho.

    GB/GBC:
    Donkey Kong 94 (I liked Mario vs. Donkey Kong, but DK 94 was a better game)
    Pokémon Blue/Red
    Zelda: Oracle of Seasons/Ages
    Game and Watch Gallery 3 (lots of games on one cart -- and the modern remakes are fun too)
    Dragon Warrior I+II/III

    GBA:
    Mario vs. Donkey Kong (I see it more as a sequel to DK 94 anyways... but I wish Nintendo had included the complete original DK as a bonus)
    Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga
    Wario Ware
    Final Fantasy IV Advance (been playing FFIV and FFV on the GBA lately, and I prefer IV)
    Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
    Metroid Fusion (despite the stress that's the Samus-X until later in the game)
    Metroid Zero (a good remake of the original)

    @Maxlords: I hated Phantasy Star Collection. Great idea, but 1. the fact that you needed to carry the item poster with you to know what to buy for whom, and 2. the fatal save bug in Phantasy Star 1 (if you saved during a certain music loop, the game would crash) were both turnoffs for me.
