Unfortunately this console is on the way out...
After Чтение IGN's вверх 25 list, I disagree with the ordering of certain games, and there are games that deserve to be there a lot еще than others. So here is my вверх 10 list. 10 - Harvest Moon: Друзья Of Mineral Town
Harvest Moon is, at it's bare roots, a life simulation game. It doesn't just stop there though, like the box art suggests the main point of the game is to take care of your inherited farm. Ты get all the things Ты need to help Ты along, including your own little щенок and eventually cows, овца, овцы and occasionally a horse! Growing your crops quickly becomes секунда nature and Ты notice all the subtle hints from your female villagers, and realise that a dating sim game also lies within Harvest Moon and you're able to take your pick of the womenfolk. Of course, the game isn't sexist, there is always a female version of each game wherein Ты may pick one of the men in the village to settle down and have a child with. Harvest Moon is one of the games, much like Animal Crossing, that can absorb your whole life if you're not careful. Ты have been warned. 9 - Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World
If you've never played this game I feel sorry for you. This is one of Mario's crowning moments in his history. Not only does it feature my favourite bosses of the Mario series, Bowser's kids, and bought in Yoshi in a massive way, as well as a big element of the game being secrets. Secret levels are plotted all over this vast game, as well as all sorts of power ups. Hours can easily be Остаться в живых in this game trying to figure out where to go in the mysterious ghost houses, and exactly how to get to that secret level your friend showed you. If Ты have a Wii and some leftover Wii points, I really advise getting the SNES version of this game. 8 - Final Фэнтези Tactics Advance
A game with the Final Фэнтези name attached is rarely a disappointment and Tactics Advance takes an entirely different turn on the usual conventions of Final Фэнтези but still comes out well. As the name suggests, the game features heavily on tactics and strategy, as after some storyline Ты are placed in the world of Ivalice and gain your own clan, made of different races and classes and skill levels. The tactics come in when Ты engage with monsters или other clans and then Ты Переместить your characters and decide what actions to take, but the smallest differences can destory a battle, such as turning the wrong way when finishing a move, resulting in the enemy getting a sneaky back attack on you. With over 300 Missions, this game can take a while, and learning the Law system seems difficult at first, but once mastered can easily be used to your own advantage. It wasn't Final Фэнтези Tactics (the PS version) like we first expected, but that doesn't mean it's not good. 7 - Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3
I mentioned that one of Mario's best moments was in Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros. 3 is one of his others, and this port plays excellently. I could probably walk through worlds 1 - 5 blindfolded these days and still get through. This Mario game introduced the magical whistles for transporting Ты as well as Toad Houses, filled with items such as the Tanooki Suit to help Ты with your adventure. This game was so Популярное that it spawned a cartoon series based on it! Once again, Bowser kidnaps персик and his kids feature again. Each boss battle however (and certain special levels) occur on airships which Переместить causing even еще panic and fun. Some levels on this game require an awful lot of memorising, such as certain timing of jumps and which enemies are where. This is really an essential Mario game, which is also avaliable on Virtual Console (I just sound like a Wii advert don't I?) 6 - Покемон FireRed/LeafGreen
Yes, the best GBA games can't be complete without at least one Покемон game. FireRed & LeafGreen are remakes of the GB classics Покемон Red & Blue/Green where Ты can catch all the original 150 Pokémon, but the remakes add in a lot more. There's a new group of islands with breeding centers and Johto Покемон (those from Gold/Silver/Crystal) on and of course Ты are now able to choose between male and female as a trainer. The basic storyline is to of course, earn your badges, raise your Pokemon, beat the evil team and beat the Elite Four, and then try and complete your Pokédex. I did this back in high school and then once again in 2004, and it was just as fun. With a Pokédex almost totalling 400, this game can take away chunks of your life. 5 - Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past + Four Swords
Link To The Past Ты say? Multiplayer Ты say? Sign me up! As if Link To The Past wasn't enough fun, in this version Ты could team up with three of your Друзья and each Link came with different abilities, so Ты needed to work together to save Zelda, and trips into the Dark World are great fun. Link To The Past basically set the standard for all following Legend Of Zelda games. Elements of Link To The Past can be seen in every game since, and to Фаны that have played, seeing these "retro" things pop up makes Ты all the еще happy. The Dark World element is a lot of fun, as some things Ты do in your own Hyrule affect things back in Dark Hyrule. If Ты can find 3 friends, a 4 player link cable and 3 GBA's, then this game is an awful lot of fun. If not, it's still fun enough! 4 - Покемон Emerald
Well, I did say at least one, so I can have another right? Покемон изумруд is the third game to Ruby & Sapphire, and adds in a whole bunch of new challenges, including the Battle Frontier, which has the highest AI in the GBA games where Ты must earn 7 Золото and 7 silver symbols after defeating the main game. These are essentially extra badges, but as I mentioned, the computer becomes a lot harder to beat, and in most cases earning the symbols involves winning through matches in a row. изумруд places us in the beautiful and water filled region of Hoenn, with very little mention of Kanto and lead to an influx of new and bizzare Pokémon, but once again, we are compelled to go through and beat the game just because. 3 - Final Фэнтези I & II: Dawn Of Souls
The first two Final Фэнтези games were brilliantly ported to the GBA and new dungeons were added to expand on the originals. These are classic RPG's in the typical sense of saving the world, battling Болталка monsters and evil empires. If Ты haven't played a Final Фэнтези game before and only own a GBA, this is a good starting point, though perhaps not the best, the best in my opinion would be Final Фэнтези V, but that has yet to be ported to the GBA или DS. The new dungeons are a lot of fun and the enemies represent a real challenge for once, there's also a bestiary on each game so that Ты can check enemies stats. Classic Final Фэнтези this be, so do give it a try. 2 - Sonic Advance 2
If Ты haven't ever played Sonic, what's wrong with you? This game follows all the basics of a Sonic game but comes with extra characters who can each discover different areas of each level, and of course each has different abilities. My own personal favourite character has to be Knuckles though. This game is so brilliant because it can be used for quick blasts, as a level can be finished within three minutes, yet discovering all it's secrets could take Ты up to a half hour. 1 - Legend Of Zelda: The Minish Cap
Yes, right up there at number one, and it's not even a Покемон game. Minish кепка, колпачок (as it is so often called) is an awesome game. From the very start, Ты begin to notice tiny little vines in the water and little гриб houses that you're sure you'll stand on and wonder how you'll get there. Ты will also notice that you're lacking Link's customary green hat. After a while Ты wander into the forest and discover your green hat in the form of a bird. He tells Ты the tragic tale of the Minish and allows Ты to shrink down to the size of them, and go into the mini-houses and rivers and such, which opens up a whole new world. This game goes on for ages, I can't remember how many hours I have poured into this game.
So, that's my вверх ten, feel free to say whether Ты agree или disagree and please do rate it. :)
I shall do some еще lists at a later дата too.
