Hi everyone. New guy on the forum here. I saw the previous post about the Top 5 CV games by ScrewAttack and I tought maybe someone could be interested in this new video of the WatchMojo guys on youtube, it's their list of the top 10 game boy advance games. After reading the title of my post you already know what awesome game is in their first spot.  ;D

The site's picks were pretty great, though I would probably have put Metroid: Zero Mission in place of Fusion, and added Mother 3 and Mega Man Zero/Zero 3 in place of some of the other Nintendo games.

I'd agree, Aria of Sorrow is the only one of the GBA games I can stand to play. Circle of the Moon just feels too awkward to get into. And Harmony of Dissonance... well, its gameplay feels much better than CotM, but the blue outline around the character sprites and the blue fade-out animation frame thingies look awful. And the game sounds ear-rapingly terrible. But ARIA OF SORROW, now that's what I call a long-awaited relief!
Everything happens for a reason. We can assume for the worse, but we can also hope and pray for the better. :)

Pretty good list tbh. Being a Fire Emblem fan boy I would rank it higher though. I'm colored happy they ranked Golden Sun so high. I thought those games were incredible.

I can agree on this, it's really the only GBA game I ever play. I like how Julius Mode gives me more of a challenge, well to be fair I love Julius Mode period.

Coming from the same Julius Belmont, we can´t denied that ;D. But, I like more the Julius mode from DoS, with the three characters to play and the final boss. In fact, I would like that AoS have a real fight with Soma/Dracula in it :P.

Yes, AoS was a great game, and the best of the three CVs of the GBA. Its a major improve among CoTM and HoD.

I do agree that Julius mode was better in DoS, I loved how I got to fight Soma. I think that a fight in AoS with Soma would be pretty awesome. AoS was a great game, I still play it too I recently reset the game and started playing again.

Thanks for the welcome. I agree with the Belmont guys on the forum (Julius and Mike), Julius mode was great in DoS, I like it a little bit more than the original game mode. The battle against Soma/Dracula was epic.
I have to play that Metroid series on the GBA.

Please don't tell me I'm the only one who found 'the Belmont guys' hilarious. In my opinion I looked much more badass in AoS but the features in DoS are just amazing. I think that if I had a design as good as in AoS combined with the things in DoS it would be just plain awesome.
