    I've recently found my brother's old gameboy color and some of my old games from when I was a child. Can I have some game recommendations for GB or GBC games?

    So far all I own is Super Mario Bros Deluxe
    Kirby's Dream Land
    Pokemon Pinball
    Oracle of Seasons and Oracle of Ages
    and I just recently bought Super Mario Land.

    tell me what games I should buy.

    I had red but was so sad when I found out you couldn't catch a Meowth (my favorite Pokemon). Silver was awesome though, I just wish I would have taken better care of my handheld games as a child.

    I still have my translucent GBC.

    Speaker is the only thing that's messed up.

    I had a translucent GBC as well but it got lost. I have my bro's old like, teal GBC. Not as cool but it has sentimental value ever since he died.

    So any non-Pokemon games that are awesome? I know the Pokemon ones are.

    Super Mario Land
    Zelda - Link's Awakening
    Donkey Kong

    I heard Bionic Commando and Mole Mania were great GB titles, though I hadn't played them.

    SHANTAE

    CastleVania II: Belmont's Ravenge
    Elevator Action
    Metroid 2
    Super Mario Land 2
    Wario Land 2 and 3

    If you get Bionic Commando, make sure it's the old black and white one, not the shitty color Elite Forces or whatever it was called

    As much as I played the ever-loving shit out of my GB, I only ever played Pokemon games.

    That being said the first TCG game was pretty ballin'.

    Oh I forgot all about that game it was pretty awesome. I was always disappointed that they never made another one. One Pokemon trading card game ever but twenty Yu-gi-oh games yeah.

    Back then Pokemon was one of those series they didn't just slap the name on and sell it. That's changed in recent years though.

    But if you want to play some virtual TCG, they now have an online version of it.
    Haven't tried it myself yet, but I kinda want to get back into it. I have discovered though that I hate a lot of the newer cards. Like they are CRAZY over-powered compared to what I had when I was a kid.

    Oh my god. Total Bonerville.

    Also, I'm playing the online TCG now. It's only my first match, but it's actually kinda fun. A lot like I remember it was.

    I had it
    It was good
    The kids at my school were lazy/stupid/something like that and didn't play properly, with the energy costs and all, so basically any cards with high HP and attack were champions of the playground

    The best card I ever had was a holo Blastoise. I got it out of a standard pack. I flipped my shit. That card got stolen too. I'm still upset about it.

    I think by the time I started playing them they were a fad. Still if I found them now I'd buy the hell out of them. Actually I should check out some yard sales. I could probably find them on the cheap.

    I just bought Mario Land, waiting for it to arrive. I used to own Link's Awakening DX but somehow lost it. Makes me sad. Thinking of buying DK Land since I fucking loved Country for SNES.

    Isn't Shantae a GBA game? Either way it's a maybe considering how much Nintendo Power has praised it and it's sequel. Will probably get Wario Land after I play Mario Land.

    No
    The Land games are okay but they're no Countrys
    I found the hit detection to be off enough to make the game unfun

    Oh, well I might buy the first Land and see how it is. And you're right, Shantae is GBC, for some strange reason I was thinking GBA.

    And holy fuckballs I just looked Shantae up on Amazon and ebay and it's ultra expensive. Yeah, not buying that anytime soon. Sad since it looked like a good game.

    Oh I completely forgot about emulators, I don't know if I wanna do that though. I do know if I ever get a 3DS I'll buy it's sequel, sure sounds fun.
