Looking for a fantastic portable game to kill some time? I will update this list regularly, especially after big releases Currently Available Must-Haves= Games that would feel at home in any collection regardless of genre preferences (* = personal recommendation) Second-Tier Awesomeness= Games that may require love of their genre, but are still worthy of any collection (* = personal recommendation) Niche Titles= Games that have gotten little recognition but still enjoy a high level of quality (* = personal recommendation) Upcoming Titles= The wishlist of any handheld gamer (* = looks especially good) Wishful Thinking= Games that may never reach American/European/Austrailian shores (* = looks especially good) 1. Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow* / Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin / Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia*3. Professor Layton and the Curious Village / Professor Layton and the Diabolical box 9.
Advance Wars: Dual Strike / Advance Wars: Days of Ruin* 10.
Final Fantasy Tactics and Fire Emblem were the best strategy games, along with Advance Wars, for me on the GBA. I loved the story in FE, as well as the characters.
In Advance Wars, I just loved the way it played as the animation was fairly rudimentary, but still okay.
The Big Short, the film adaptation of Michael Lewis' book of the same name about the causes of the financial crisis, opens in UK cinemas this weekend.
Give it another try - once you 'get it' it gets you, in a good way.
I would argue that FF XII: Revenant Wings doesn't deserve to be on any list with the word "quality" in the title. I think it is a fantastic puzzle game that is fun and has style.
Nice to see the Professor Layton and the Phoenix Wright games on there, though. I'm pretty sure this game is like only used now. Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings is an awesome game.
I got about 80% of the way through that game before giving up.
Most of the time, if I get that far in a game I'll go ahead and muscle my way through it, just because I'm so close.
