We haven't had one of these in a while so what'cha:


Just shill and chill while we discuss the greatest handheld console ever created.

Not retro, also extremely mediocre library. Lacks the charm of the GB/C library.

>> No.3064678

Not retro. Will never be retro

Megaman Zero series, Metroid Fusion and 3 Castlevanias would like to have a word with you

Zone of the enders is pretty GOAT tier

More retro than the Dreamcast.

>> No.3064702

Exactly. There's like 5 games I can hang the platform on -- I have a GB flashcart because there's plenty there to play, but for the GBA there just isn't the value.

That's not saying these are bad games at all, but the platform is too dependant on tie-ins rather than original content.

utter garbage. GBA has way better games, but hey? It doesn't matter here, ask /v/ about GBA.

>Not retro, but let me make this bait statement so that I generate actual discussion going on.

Fuck you, and you need to play Astro Boy Omega Factor.

The Dreamcast was released in 1998, which fits the pre-2000 criteria of /vr/'s rules.

>> No.3064715

Dates don't matter, what matters is the games. 2D sprite games are more retro than 480p 3D games.

Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier.

>> No.3064736

nice meme

>> No.3064739

except that isnt what retro means?

>> No.3064740

What's sad about these threads is that they always live to be 300 posts even though they should be nuked on sight.

>> No.3064743

My GBA flashcart is loaded with emulators, the NES classics series, and Ninja Five-O

That's all you need

It's okay, they're a testament and a reminder that allowing 6th gen wouldn't be a bright idea.

>> No.3064759

Last game I played was Wario Land 4. It was a step down from 2 & 3 but had pretty nice graphics (good use of sprite morphing) and groovy music.

GB/C has what, Pokemon, Mario, and Pokemon I think?

That's every Nintendo handheld ever pretty much.

>those screencaps

>> No.3064769

It's more than that. There are plenty of games for each.

But of course if you played a gameboy more than an advance you're going to think the library is better.

I don't know why but this pic still cracks me up.

Just started playing FF6. Sounds amazing
Playing Emerald for the first time.

Let me get this straight....25 years from now GBA won't be retro? Get the fuck outta here with that shit.
