    I'm sure that there are a lot of people that are in the same boat I am in.

    I never thought about buying a Gameboy before, because I thought it was very poorly designed. The last handheld I had was the Game Gear.

    Now that the GBA SP is out, I will soon be purchasing one.

    Unfortunately, I have no idea of which games to get.

    Can someone give me their opinion of what the "best of the best" gameboy titles are?

    Thanks.

    [​IMG] just asked a similar q in the sw section the other day. here's the thread with some good resources including this article on "must have" titles. And this article on games to watch. I'm partucularly looking forward to Jet Grind Radio. Missed this title when it first came out and fell in love with Jet Set Radio Future on Xbox.

    Anyone have a recommendation for a good GBA baseball game? I'm still playing my GBC version of ASB2001.

    I haven't had a chance to play any GBA baseball games to this point, but I remember hearing good things about Baseball Advance by Sega.

    There isn't any info about a new version of it for this year yet though.

    I haven't heard much about High Heat or ASB though at this point.
