In the last few months we've taken a look at a few more obscure systems in the Saturn and the TG16, as well as one of the first mainstream home consoles in the Atari 2600. For October, the Nintendo fans from the beginning of the year can rejoin us as we take a look at the...



Basically a portable Super NES, the Game Boy Advance was released in 2001, and spanned nearly 10 years. It's library is famous for some NES re-releases, Super NES ports, but also infamous for its amount of shovelware.

So lets sift through the best of what the system has to offer-

Participants:

EZ Racer*
Crabmaster2000*
Disposed Hero*
MetalFro*
blcklblskt*
Normatron*

If you have participated before, anyone is welcome. Here's a reminder how to participate-

1. Make an ordered list of whatever games are your favorites for the system being covered that month.

-Make your list about what games you think are the best that system has to offer, NOT necessarily the most important. (For example, Super Mario Bros. is one of the most influential games in VG history, but not many would call it a better game than SMB3)

-Also, your list needs to be limited to games you have personally played. Don't include a game just because you've heard it's good, include a game because you know it's good.

-For a few of the games, try to include a few thoughts on why that particular game made your list. That way, those not as familiar with the game can see why it's one they should put on their radar.

2. Personal Message EZ Racer with your ordered list.

Just put "Top 20 games for the (whatever system we're covering that month)" in the subject line. Throughout the month, I will be compiling the results, and release a full list based on votes sent in. I will be putting extra weight on games voted for the top of the lists, so please make sure that your games are listed in numeric order. The reasoning behind a private vote is so that each member's vote can be their own, not influenced by what they think others would want.

The voting cutoff each month will be the last day of the month at 11:59 EST.

Please stick to NA and PAL releases, later in the year we'll do some lists for Japan exclusives.

Looking forward to seeing everyone's thoughts on a vast library of games.

This should be a really fun with and with such a HUGE library I'm sure we'll have a lot of pretty diverse lists. Outside of the like the top 3 I think we'll all be all over the place.

I'm hoping I'll be able to participate in this one. I haven't played as much GBA as I would like, so I'll have to see if I can come up with 20.

I will participate but I'm sure I won't have a list of 20.  I've only played a handful of GBA games.

This should be an interesting one as the GBA has such a diverse library. I've got my top 5 already, but the rest are going to be a lot harder

I'm going to have to drop out.  I only own 15 GBA games and I've only played 3 of them.  I don't think that would be enough to warrant a list from me.

Hmm, another one I'm less familiar with, but I might try and participate.

Just throwing it out there for everyone who feels like they'll come up a little short. If your list is only 15 games (or whatever number), send the list of 15 games and I'll adjust the scoring to make it work. I'm sure that if we have several people submit a list that's less than 20, we'll still end up with at least 20 games that score well and can make a final list out of.

I'm in! The GBA was the first handheld I remember buying at launch and is likely the handheld I've spent the most time playing with. Looking forward to seeing this top 20!

We've had a few lists turned in, but would love to see a final push to get more participation. I know there's plenty of love for the system.

Cutting it close, but I just submitted my list. Only 15 games and quite a few of them are ports, and no comments from me this time, but it's done.

Start watching for the release info, this one could get some interesting comments and reaction the way it played out. I'll have the single vote also-rans up soon.
