I owned a Gameboy Advance (and later an SP) back in the day, and although I played it a lot, I didn’t really get into RPGs on the system all that much.  Going through Radiant Historia on my DS has rekindled my RPG itch, so I figured it was time to go back and check out a bunch of games I had missed.  After doing some quick research, I found there’s a treasure trove of RPGs on the Gameboy Advance…and best of all, they’re 2D sprite-based games! 

I’ve already compiled a list of the ones I plan to pick up, but I wanted to solicit some opinions from you folks: what essential GBA RPGs am I missing from this list?  Thanks!

  • Final Fantasy Rereleases (I-VI) (I’ve played most of them, but I figured what they hey.)
  • Final Fantasy Tactics (started but never finished it)
  • Golden Sun & sequel
  • Fire Emblem & sequel
  • Breath of Fire and sequel
  • Lunar Legend
  • Sword of Mana
  • Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga
  • Mazes of Fate
  • Shining Soul & sequel
  • Riviera: The Promised Land
  • Yggdra Union

Please suggest some more, everyone!  Turn-based, action, strategy…it doesn’t matter.  Just shoot any GBA RPG suggestions my way.  Thanks!
