Not quite as good as other iterations of the same game on different platforms but Fifa 07 nevertheless managed to become an amazing sports game on the GBA. The graphics were of poor quality and the gameplay quite basic, but it was one of the most exciting games in the GBA which featured many teams from all over the world and from different leagues. The game featured high level players which made playing GBA a lot of fun. There was also no minute-by-minute commentary on the GBA build, but that was purely due to the hardware limitations of the GBA.

Super Mario Bros

The classic, golden game that redefined the platformer genre and brought something amazing to everyone. The game that introduced us to all-time favorite characters, Mario, and his green brother, Luigi. This is the game that made us chase Bowser through his 8 castles to find Princess Peach. Each castle has a false princess to the last, which contains both the original Bowser and the original Princess. The game is simple. Just run and jump from side to side of the map while collecting coins and treats along the way.
