The Nintendo GameBoy Advance (GBA) took handheld gaming to the 32-bit era, and in gorgeous colour. It was the much-anticipated successor to the storied GameBoy line, and lived up to all the expectations and then some. The console provided some solid games that could scarcely be believed to be in handheld form. It had a massive library of games that consisted of 16-bit games ported over for it, excellent third-party games, and brilliant exclusives that catered specifically to the GBA. It would prove to be the last in the GameBoy line, before Nintendo switched its attentions to the DS line, and therefore holds a very special place in our hearts. Without further ado, here is the list of best GameBoy Advance ever. You can play these games on PC, iPhone, Android, Xbox One, Online or PS4.
15. Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (2003)
Every Nintendo console has had a Mario RPG, and the GBA would be no different. ‘Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga’ has a distinct aesthetic removed from other RPGs but quite similar to the ‘Super Paper Mario’ design. Players control both the players in familiar GBA control schemes with the game adding real-time mechanics to take the gameplay up several notches. Consisting of a hilarious adventure as well, this one is a must-play.

14. Fire Emblem (2003)
As a series, ‘Fire Emblem’ has a long and rich history, but Nintendo didn’t release the games outside of Japan for many years. It was only through this particular game, the seventh in the series and the first on the GBA, that the game was known to people outside its homeland. After this point, there was no looking back for the series, as gamers were completely taken in by its deep strategic gameplay, role-playing gaming (RPG) mechanics, and that characters would permanently die if the players got their tactics wrong.
