Get Golden Sun, it's really good, and the battle style is real fun. also, u might want to try a pokemon game for GBA, or Fire Emblem, but Golden Sun is by far the best, IMO.

Do you like DBZ? If so, I suggest getting LoG2/Buu's Fury.

Exactly what Slingblade said, with the addition of:

Tactics Ogre:The Knight of Lodis

and if you can import:

Super Robot Wars Original Generation (ok, this is more strategy, but still...)
Super Robot Wars R
Super Robot Wars D

Wait a few weeks and buy Final Fantasy I & II...they come in the same cartridge and I have played II and it is excellent...

11-24-2004, 12:10 PM
Golden Sun series is very good. Pokemon games are great also..Fire Emblem is a great strategy\RPG.

11-24-2004, 06:48 PM
Right now I am playing Dragon Warrior II. It's an awesome RPG and comes in the same cart with Dragon Warrior, which was one of the very first Nintendo RPGs.

Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 is also an EXCELLENT game, I've played it for over 400 hours and am still playing.

If you must have Game Boy ADVANCE games, Golden Sun is probably the best RPG there is for the GBA.

11-24-2004, 07:52 PM
any FF games for GBA, or Golden Suns I and II.

11-25-2004, 11:56 AM
Fire Emblem.

11-25-2004, 12:58 PM
You can get well over 100 hours will FFTA. FF1+2 looks pretty good too.

11-25-2004, 02:39 PM
My personal favorite is Golden Sun. Final Fantasy Tactics Advance was decent. But it got a bit boring...

Actually, if you only do storyline missions, it take less then 10.

Actually, if you only do storyline missions, it take less then 10.
And if you complete all 300 missions, all the reserve missions, get all the secret characters, semi-secret characters, fill your entire party, have everyone learn ALL of their skills for every jobset (including combos), fill the monster bank, max out all the monster bank's monsters (including the Malboros), max out the Sequence, Acacia Hat, Peytral, and Sapre Aude, get 99 of every item (including Ninja Tabi), get everyone's stats PERFECT at every level-up, and then start a new game and try to beat it using only human thieves...

Took me over 600 hours. Yes, I am a perfectionist.

Fire Emblem=Best RPG for GBA

11-27-2004, 02:26 AM
Yeah, RPGs ><;
Breath of Fire I and II were both good.
I must admit, FFTA "rocked the house"
Fire emblem is cool... But a little challenging... Or maybe I'm just stupid...
Golden sun is also a nice choice
Tactics ogre: The knight of lodis > j00

02-23-2009, 07:44 AM

Well, someone's a necrophiliac here...

Anyway, the best RPG is Mother 3. By miles, and more miles, and a few more.
Then it's Golden Sun, followed by Ze Fire Emblems, and then by its sequel, and then probably FFT and Super Robot Taisen.

FF4 is awful. Especially this butchered port. 6 is better, but not by that much.

03-11-2009, 06:51 PM
Man, serious mother love, lol mama's boy.....kidding of course.

03-19-2009, 02:03 PM
WEll I'm sure no one is still asking but:
Fire Emblem
FF Tactics Advance
Golden sun I and II

... I want mother 3 for the gba... like... a literal cartridge for it.

Golden Sun. Thread over.
Fire Emblem is bleah, FE: Sacred Stones is fun.
Then there are the Pokemon games, but Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald have bad feels and FireRed and LeafGreen are just bad.

Golden Sun is a great game too.

05-28-2009, 04:26 AM
my vote goes for Golden Sun, followed by the Pokemon games and lastly Fire Emblem...

08-03-2009, 09:36 PM
Fire Emblem Sealed Sword
Fire Emblem Sacred Stones

08-07-2009, 02:21 AM
1. Golden Sun and it's divine sequel
2. Pokemon Fire Red/Leaf Green

08-09-2009, 07:21 PM
I'd go with Golden Sun, but I like playing Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones, and trying out Shining Force: Resurrection of the Dark Dragon.

Fire Emblem and Sacred Stones. Pokemon, and Golden Sun. Um Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.

08-25-2009, 06:12 AM
Every Pokemon and Legend Of Zelda Link To The Past was the best RPG on the Gameboy Advance.

08-30-2009, 03:41 PM
Pokemon FireRed/LeafGreen FTW

09-12-2009, 08:45 AM
Golden Sun FTW

that and fire emblem, and FFTA

12-15-2009, 11:57 AM
I have played many GBA RPGs, and a lot of the ones on here are great. But there is one called "Riviera: The Promised Land" that is especially exceptional, though not often played. It tells a great story in a unique way, and is quite challenging if you don't use state save.

I'd recommend giving it a try.

12-16-2009, 04:15 AM
You NEED to get both Golden Sun games. They're my favorite games of all time, and I cannot recommend these games enough.

12-16-2009, 06:54 PM
How Mother 3 has yet to be mentioned here baffles me.

04-15-2011, 06:56 PM
Because Mother 3 isn't an "everyone" type of game? Not even for a lot of RPG lovers. Some people wont even try it because they didn't like Earthbound... It's a highly underrated game outside of japan.

As for good RPGs, there are too many to name them all. But Golden Sun is definitely one of the best. Riviera is good, but another one of those like Mother 3 that just wont work for everyone. FFTA is one of my personal favorites, but since FFTA2 for the DS released, I can't tolerate it anymore. TO:TKoL is much more playable for me. Yggdra Union: We'll Never Fight Alone is another amazing tactical rpg. But it can be VERY challenging.

It has?

08-17-2011, 04:24 AM
Fire Emblem, and it's sequel, The Sealed Sword.

08-23-2011, 07:38 PM
Anything pokemon really
