Best Gameboy Advance Games Of All Time

Published: Dec 5, 2021

The Nintendo Gameboy Advance is a handheld game system that was released by Nintendo in 2001 and was the successor to the Gameboy Color. The GBA had more power than its predecessor, could display more colors than the GBC, and was backwards compatible with older systems. The original Game Boy did not have a backlight, but this was later addressed with the Game Boy Advance SP. The new features allowed the company to put more time & effort into producing better handheld games.

The Nintendo Gameboy Advance was able to play both Nintendo Gameboy and Gameboy Color games. The system was introduced in 2001 and it became popular with many players because of its large library of games. Some of the most popular games that were released for the system were "Mario Kart: Super Circuit", "Pokémon Ruby Version", "Super Mario Advance" and "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past." These, along with many others, have a dedicated fanbase that continues to play them to this day.

What made gaming on the Gameboy Advance so fun was the ability to link up with other players. A feature that is common today, at the time was greatly underappreciated and not used to its full potential. One of our favorite uses of the gamelink was for trading and dueling Pokémon through the various Pokémon games available at the time.
