More of a "keeper" WarioWare or Mario Golf?

I've recently downsized my collection (kind of dovetails with that thread
about having to many games). Since I'm mostly an RPG gamer and GBA-only, I
don't play a whole lot. So hoarding games I never play is dumb. So I
unloaded a bunch recently and bought another SP which I'm going to give to
some kid (wife and I don't have kids) for Christmas on one of those
wishing trees.

Anyway, point is, I'm looking at my pretty spartan collection now and
wondering if there is anything left I want to add that actually has some
hope of getting replayed again. Games I sold that I just couldn't see
myself taking the time to replay again.

Metroid Zero Mission
Legend of Zelda: ALTTP
Golden Sun 1 & 2

I have like 12 games now. Two games I've thought about getting (I've had
them before, but sold them to buy something else) to grab as keepers are
Mario Golf and WarioWare. I'm leaning towards WarioWare. Mostly because
that's a game you can play for a couple hours, beat. Set down for months
and then want to play again. Mario Golf I remember enjoying, but I also
seem to remember it getting a little monotonous. So I'm not sure.

Opinions?

of the two, I'd get/keep Warioware.. it was easy enough to finish, but
was great for those 10 minute blasts from time to time. Also had a few
minigames.

I can see myself picking up Warioware again in a few months (although by
then I probably have the DS version!)

Thanks.

How big is your total collection? I finally decided that between work (I'm
a computer programmer) and other hobbies like Cycling, reading books and
spending time with my wife going to movies, etc. I just had too many
games. And it was getting to be like work to play them. So I had to get
rid of those games I just knew I'd never play again. So I whittled my
collection down to 12 games. The 12 I have are a great 12. But long ones
(mostly Strategy RPGs and Pokemon). So there are more than enough hours in
those games. But WarioWare is so short, that it's tempting.

I'd keep Warioware definitely. I have many that I don't play also.
I just don't have the time, and when I have the time, I can only play
one or two anyways, but for me this extends beyong the GBA, I still
have XBOX, PS2 and Gamecube, along with the GBA, and also occasionally
buy older PS1 games and Sega Saturn games that I missed out on. And
for some games, I know for a fact that I'll never play them again, not
because they weren't great (like Tactics Ogre for the PS1), but I just
know I won't do it because I want to play things I haven't played
before. Also, I still have many games that are still sealed in their
original packaging that I haven't gotten to yet: Crimson Skies,
Xenosaga, Dark Cloud 2, Otogi, Jet Set Radio Future (an XBOX release
title!), Virtua Fighter 3, Disgaea, Pucelle Tactics, Phantom Brave and
the list goes on. I may have played these on rentals or demos and
liked them so I bought them, but I haven't had a chance to open them
up and play them. Considering most of them I bought at $40-50 each,
and now you can some for $20, I think I screwed myself. Luckily I
make good money, unfortunately, I waste most of it :)  I think I just
horde games. I know when I was a kid I couldn't get all the games I
wanted, so now I'm making up for it, but I don't have as much time as
I had back them. A double edged sword I guess.

I have the same compulsion. I was really poor as a kid. That's part of why
I buy as many as I buy.
