Hi Guys...Im getting back into the GBA after deciding to replace the oneI
lost , and would like to ask your advice of your ' must have ' games for the
GBA.
I like most genres, but i **really** don't like RPG type games and find them
incredibly dull, but if you guys can reccomend decent
strategy/sports/racing/puzzle type games, I'd love to take yr suggestions on
board before I go mental with my credit card :-)

Thanks in advance...

Advance Wars 1 & 2 - Really great turn-based strategy games
Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town - Awesome farming sim
Castlevania: Any! - All three GBA Castlevania games are great choices
Broken Sword: Shadow of the Templars - Terrific point-and-click
adventure game in the old Sierra
style
Metroid: Zero Mission & Fusion - Fun action titles especially if you've
played others in the series

There's many others I can't think of right now ... :)

Difficult subject, TNN. So many good games, so many opinions. Still it's
nice to know what games "clicked" with various individuals.

A few that worked for me:
The three Castlevanias. These work very well on the GBA. COTM's probably
my favourite. I wouldn't call them RPGs but they involve levelling up and
a fair bit of back-tracking so I'm not sure if you would like them.
The metroids. Both of them. Excellent. They're a bit challenging at
times for an old-timer like me but they're meant to be so. They're very
well designed. They aren't in any of the genres you listed but they
certainly aren't dull.
Mario Kart. A little work of art, this. I'm not crazy about racing games
on the GBA but this one is adorable and works like the GBA was made for it.

A few of my wife's favourites. She has a completely different taste in
games to me. Likes puzzle games, games that have a lot of replay value.
Some of these may be hard to find now, but anyway:
Scrabble: "The old man" (top-level computer opponent) cheats like sin but
still - scrabble in your pocket? Great!
Columns Crown: Classic puzzle game. Apparently the best in its class.
Very high replay value if you like this sort of game.
Puyo Pop: Similar to CC. Pretty solid. Not quite in CC's class though.
Pinball Challenge Deluxe: Of all the GBA pinball games, this one's the
best (or so I'm told). Eight excellent tables here.
Pinball of the Dead: Another good pinball game. Pity about the dark
theme.
Bookworm: A word puzzle game. Seems to be very addictive.
