10 - Harvest Moon: 老友记 Of Mineral Town
Harvest Moon is, at it's bare roots, a life simulation game. It doesn't just stop there though, like the box art suggests the main point of the game is to take care of your inherited farm. 你 get all the things 你 need to help 你 along, including your own little 小狗 and eventually cows, 羊 and occasionally a horse! Growing your crops quickly becomes 秒 nature and 你 notice all the subtle hints from your female villagers, and realise that a dating sim game also lies within Harvest Moon and you're able to take your pick of the womenfolk. Of course, the game isn't sexist, there is always a female version of each game wherein 你 may pick one of the men in the village to settle down and have a child with. Harvest Moon is one of the games, much like Animal Crossing, that can absorb your whole life if you're not careful. 你 have been warned.
9 - Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World
If you've never played this game I feel sorry for you. This is one of Mario's crowning moments in his history. Not only does it feature my favourite bosses of the Mario series, Bowser's kids, and bought in Yoshi in a massive way, as well as a big element of the game being secrets. Secret levels are plotted all over this vast game, as well as all sorts of power ups. Hours can easily be 迷失 in this game trying to figure out where to go in the mysterious ghost houses, and exactly how to get to that secret level your friend showed you. If 你 have a Wii and some leftover Wii points, I really advise getting the SNES version of this game.
8 - Final 幻想 Tactics Advance
A game with the Final 幻想 name attached is rarely a disappointment and Tactics Advance takes an entirely different turn on the usual conventions of Final 幻想 but still comes out well. As the name suggests, the game features heavily on tactics and strategy, as after some storyline 你 are placed in the world of Ivalice and gain your own clan, made of different races and classes and skill levels. The tactics come in when 你 engage with monsters 或者 other clans and then 你 移动 your characters and decide what actions to take, but the smallest differences can destory a battle, such as turning the wrong way when finishing a move, resulting in the enemy getting a sneaky back attack on you. With over 300 Missions, this game can take a while, and learning the Law system seems difficult at first, but once mastered can easily be used to your own advantage. It wasn't Final 幻想 Tactics (the PS version) like we first expected, but that doesn't mean it's not good.
7 - Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros. 3
I mentioned that one of Mario's best moments was in Super Mario World and Super Mario Bros. 3 is one of his others, and this port plays excellently. I could probably walk through worlds 1 - 5 blindfolded these days and still get through. This Mario game introduced the magical whistles for transporting 你 as well as Toad Houses, filled with items such as the Tanooki Suit to help 你 with your adventure. This game was so 流行的 that it spawned a cartoon series based on it! Once again, Bowser kidnaps 桃子 and his kids feature again. Each boss battle however (and certain special levels) occur on airships which 移动 causing even 更多 panic and fun. Some levels on this game require an awful lot of memorising, such as certain timing of jumps and which enemies are where. This is really an essential Mario game, which is also avaliable on Virtual Console (I just sound like a Wii advert don't I?)
6 - 神奇宝贝 FireRed/LeafGreen
Yes, the best GBA games can't be complete without at least one 神奇宝贝 game. FireRed & LeafGreen are remakes of the GB classics 神奇宝贝 Red & Blue/Green where 你 can catch all the original 150 Pokémon, but the remakes add in a lot more. There's a new group of islands with breeding centers and Johto 神奇宝贝 (those from Gold/Silver/Crystal) on and of course 你 are now able to choose between male and female as a trainer. The basic storyline is to of course, earn your badges, raise your Pokemon, beat the evil team and beat the Elite Four, and then try and complete your Pokédex. I did this back in high school and then once again in 2004, and it was just as fun. With a Pokédex almost totalling 400, this game can take away chunks of your life.
5 - Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Past + Four Swords
Link To The Past 你 say? Multiplayer 你 say? Sign me up! As if Link To The Past wasn't enough fun, in this version 你 could team up with three of your 老友记 and each Link came with different abilities, so 你 needed to work together to save Zelda, and trips into the Dark World are great fun. Link To The Past basically set the standard for all following Legend Of Zelda games. Elements of Link To The Past can be seen in every game since, and to 粉丝 that have played, seeing these "retro" things pop up makes 你 all the 更多 happy. The Dark World element is a lot of fun, as some things 你 do in your own Hyrule affect things back in Dark Hyrule. If 你 can find 3 friends, a 4 player link cable and 3 GBA's, then this game is an awful lot of fun. If not, it's still fun enough!
4 - 神奇宝贝 Emerald
Well, I did say at least one, so I can have another right? 神奇宝贝 翠, 翡翠 is the third game to Ruby & Sapphire, and adds in a whole bunch of new challenges, including the Battle Frontier, which has the highest AI in the GBA games where 你 must earn 7 金牌 and 7 silver symbols after defeating the main game. These are essentially extra badges, but as I mentioned, the computer becomes a lot harder to beat, and in most cases earning the symbols involves winning through matches in a row. 翠, 翡翠 places us in the beautiful and water filled region of Hoenn, with very little mention of Kanto and lead to an influx of new and bizzare Pokémon, but once again, we are compelled to go through and beat the game just because.
3 - Final 幻想 I & II: Dawn Of Souls
The first two Final 幻想 games were brilliantly ported to the GBA and new dungeons were added to expand on the originals. These are classic RPG's in the typical sense of saving the world, battling 随意 monsters and evil empires. If 你 haven't played a Final 幻想 game before and only own a GBA, this is a good starting point, though perhaps not the best, the best in my opinion would be Final 幻想 V, but that has yet to be ported to the GBA 或者 DS. The new dungeons are a lot of fun and the enemies represent a real challenge for once, there's also a bestiary on each game so that 你 can check enemies stats. Classic Final 幻想 this be, so do give it a try.
2 - Sonic Advance 2
If 你 haven't ever played Sonic, what's wrong with you? This game follows all the basics of a Sonic game but comes with extra characters who can each discover different areas of each level, and of course each has different abilities. My own personal favourite character has to be Knuckles though. This game is so brilliant because it can be used for quick blasts, as a level can be finished within three minutes, yet discovering all it's secrets could take 你 up to a half hour.
1 - Legend Of Zelda: The Minish Cap
Yes, right up there at number one, and it's not even a 神奇宝贝 game. Minish 帽 (as it is so often called) is an awesome game. From the very start, 你 begin to notice tiny little vines in the water and little 蘑菇 houses that you're sure you'll stand on and wonder how you'll get there. 你 will also notice that you're lacking Link's customary green hat. After a while 你 wander into the forest and discover your green hat in the form of a bird. He tells 你 the tragic tale of the Minish and allows 你 to shrink down to the size of them, and go into the mini-houses and rivers and such, which opens up a whole new world. This game goes on for ages, I can't remember how many hours I have poured into this game.
So, that's my 最佳, 返回页首 ten, feel free to say whether 你 agree 或者 disagree and please do rate it. :)
I shall do some 更多 lists at a later 日期 too.
