Time for some single vote games-


One 20th place vote


Dragon Ball GT Transformation

Super Ghouls and Ghosts


One 19th place vote


Dragon Ball Z: Legacy of Goku

Iridion II-
" Iridion 3D was a fancy GBA tech demo, but this is the real deal. Quality shmup action with impressive graphics, a full story mode, and solid gameplay."


One 18th place vote


Pokemon Fire Red


One 17th place vote

SimCity 2000


One 16th place vote

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

Megaman and Bass

Kirby Nightmare in Dreamland


One 15th place vote

Metal Slug Advance

Super Dodgeball Advance


One 14th place vote

Classic NES: Dr. Mario

Golden Sun-
"Perhaps one the first RPGs I spent a considerable amount of time with, the story, graphics and gameplay all had me hooked."

Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island- "Again, this is just Yoshi's Island, but is that a bad thing?"


One 13th place vote


Mr. Driller 2

Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hands



Lots more to come...

More single vote also-rans:


One 12th place vote


Astro Boy Omega Factor

Mega Man Battle Network




One 11th place vote


Final Fight One

Klonoa: Empire of Dreams

Super Street Fighter II: Turbo Revival-
"My mom didn't want me playing Super Street Fighter II Turbo on the SNES, but this title came out enough years later that she was fine with me purchasing this game. Consequently, I have only a little experience with the SNES title, but this version is an excellent game in my opinion. The game played fluidly, looked great, and has a huge roster. There are also quite a few extra modes that were fun when I played it."



One 9th place vote


Double Dragon Advance

Mega Man Zero

WarioWare, Inc. Mega Microgame$-
"The first of many ridiculous and ridiculously fun minigame collections that had my brothers and I continually replaying this title."



One 7th place vote


Mario vs Donkey Kong

Super Mario Advance-
"Once again, it's just Super Mario Bros 2, but this adds elements beyond the All-Stars makeover, and elevates the experience beyond just a simple glow-up."



One 6th place vote


Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation 2



One 5th place vote


Sega Arcade Gallery- "Four great arcade ports stuffed into one package, with a few arguably better than their Genesis counterparts. Admittedly, I got this mainly for the Outrun port, and it exceeded expectations."

Mega Man Battle Network 3- "My brother and I put countless hours into White and Blue. The mix of real-time action with the added strategy of building out a chip library made this game very fun. I also remember these titles having quite a lot of post-game content that I don't think we ever fully beat."



One 3rd place vote


Mega Man Battle Network 6

Alright, so here's the rest of the also-rans, the multi-votes-


Sword of Mana (#20, #13)


Super Robot Taisen: Original Generation (#19, #14)


Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island (#16, #12)

"Again, this is just Yoshi's Island, but is that a bad thing?"


Mega Man Zero 2 (#15, #12)


Mario Kart: Super Circuit (#17, #11)

"This takes the look and feel of the SNES original game, and makes enough improvement to make it feel like a much tighter experience."

"A solid racing game, but it has always felt just a bit off to me when compared to the other games of the franchise. The controls seem a little loose, and while there are some memorable environments, the track layouts feel a bit cookie cutter in nature. Compared to most racing games, it's a title of solid quality. But most of the time we don't lump the Mario Karts in as 'most racing games'."




And that takes care of it. It was interesting to me that only 59 games got a vote. Even with only six submissions, that's low. (Compare it to last month when 70 games got a vote with the same number of participants) That said, several games got multiple votes, but it was enough to put most of them in the top 20 or just outside.

One of the surprises of Nintendo's E3. Advance Wars 1 & 2 Reboot Camp is a remake of two GBA games that rated very highly on our lists. Anyone else excited?

I'll give them another shot for sure. They didn't resonate with me back in the day, but I appreciate strategy games a lot more now.

Dude, so excited. Also pretty stoked for the new Metroid game. I really didn't think Nintendo would annouce so many high profile games for release this year, but apparently they are set on making my entire entertainment budget Switch-centric.  Looks like Yo-Yai Watch 3 will have to wait until next year.
