    Teleroboxer is great. The closest thing we've had to a genuine Punch-Out sequel in a long time.

    Mario's Tennis is fun, there really isn't anything else like it.

    VB Wario Land is an EXCELLENT platformer, and probably my favorite Wario game.

    Panic bomber is fun, but it's one of those games I really wish I could play 2 player. Think Puzzle Fighter in the Bomberman universe and you're almost there.

    Mario Clash is kind of like the original Mario Bros. in 3d, if you can dig that.

    Red Alarm is kind of a neat 3d shooter with vector style graphics. Battlezone + Descent in true 3d.

    Actually, all the games I've played are pretty good. It is just the msot uncomfortable system to play after about 5 minutes

    I also like 3D Tetris. If you've played Blockout or similiar 3D game, 3D Tetris is just like that.

    \Virtualboy doesn't use regional lockout so you can also use Japanese games.

    There's V-Tetris which is a bit like original Tetris on steroid.

    And if you have deep pocket and really good paitence, you might want to try and snag Virtual Space Invaders. They almost never appear on eBay and when they do, you're looking at around $500 for one.

    Virtual Fishing's also fun (about $50 on eBay)

    Golf is good, but kind of slow. My best friend who hates Golf played 18 holes, said it was oddly addicting.

    V-Tetris is a blast to play...

    Actually, all of the VB games are at least a little fun to play.

    I need to find Nester's Funky Bowling at some point...
