gbaicon.png Game Boy Advance

The Game Boy Advance was Nintendo's third portable video game system that used cartridges. I imported the Game Boy Advance from Japan when it first came out. This is the first time I did this for a Nintendo system, and only the third time I ever did it with any system, with the Sega Dreamcast and Sony PlayStation 2 being the only other systems I imported.

The Game Boy Advance has some really great games on it. I love the Mario RPG series, and the GBA has one of the quirkiest and most fun I've games played in the series, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. Nintendo released some other really quirky games for the GBA which I really enjoyed, such as Wario Ware which was a series of really fast timed micro-games with some bizarre but fun goals.

I really enjoyed the horizontal layout of the system, as opposed to the vertical layout of the Game Boy. It made it a lot more comfortable, and the button layout felt a lot like the Super Nintendo, except with two less buttons. So far, the Neo Geo Pocket is the most fun I've had yet with a portable system, but the Game Boy Advance is definitely a close second.
