I just ordered a Gameboy Color with Pokemon Gold and I'm going to be getting a lot of Gameboy/Gameboy Color games! Any suggestions? I already have on the list: Wario Land 1-3, Super Mario Land, Metriod II, Donkey Kong, Kirby's Dream Land, Metal Gear Solid, Pokemon Blue and Yellow, and Zelda Oracle of ages/seasons. Any other amazing Gameboy/Gameboy Color I should look for?

Pokemon Crystal, Link's Awakening, Donkey Kong Country, and Mario Tennis are a few that I can name. :D

That's a pretty good start there on your wishlist. I can tell you have some good tastes, sir! :D

I'd also suggest:

Game Boy Originals:

  • Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge (Action-Platformer) - I haven't played Castlevania Adventure personally, but from what I hear it's pretty similar.
  • Double Dragon 1 & 2 (Beat-Em Up)
  • Dr. Mario (One of the best puzzle games, on-the-go)
  • Duck Tales 1 & 2 (Platformer) - At first glance you may think "Oh, not another licensed paint-by-the-numbers game." But this series was one of the best platformers around back then.
  • Final Fantasy: Adventure (Action-RPG)
  • Gradius: Interstellar Assault (Shoot-Em Up)
  • Mega Man 1-5 (Action-Platformer)
  • Ninja Gaiden: Shadow (Action-Platformer)
  • Operation C (Contra) (Run-N-Gun)
  • Super Mario Land 2: The Six Golden Coins (MUCH better than the original SM Land (although the original game is still fun))

Game Boy Color Games:

  • Bionic Commando: Elite Force - Great action-platformer based off of the NES classic (but not a port, an all-new game).
  • Crystalis (Action-RPG) - Port of one of the best game ever released on the NES.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX - Probably THE greatest game from the original Game Boy's library, but in spectacular color!
  • Super Mario Deluxe (Platformer) - Port of the original Super Mario Bros. with some added features)
  • R-Type DX (Shoot-Em Up)
  • Tetris DX (Tetris, on-the-go, in color)
