not golden sun

sword craft story is alright

riviera the promised land is ok

you probably got some final fantasies on there, like the best final fantasy ever made out of all the numbered final fantasy titles: five.

the megaman battle networks are probably considered rpgs.

I was going to say that. I loved that game when I had it. I also had this Baldur's Gate game that was just a hack-n-slack ARPG which I enjoyed quite a bit.

I never played Golden Sun, but I did play Golden Sun the Lost Age and really liked it.

You can get FFVI on GBA too, and that's one of the best RPGs of all time.

Also I've heard nothing but good things about this one. Just couldn't get into it myself.

I'm personally tired of Pokemon, but there are fan made games out there that are pretty good and quite extensive. Might be worth looking into. I liked watching my friend play Snakewood.

Geez, I know I own quite a few, but struggling to remember anything.

Sword of Mana was pretty good, though.

I really liked Sword of Mana, but it heavily features a lot of something that I hate: missable items and powerups. That and the story can get a little convoluted.

Tales of Phantasia was really fun as well. And I liked Golden Sun 2 more than the original.

I still have several I need to start/finish, like Summon Night Swordcraft Story 1 & 2, and Mario & Luigi. I suppose I could just play the latter on 3DS.

fire emblem 7, which may be my favorite srpg

mario and luigi super star saga is top 3 mario rpg games

ffta is great, and better than FFT

the first 3 battle network games are great (6 is cool too, 4 is good, and 5 is the worst)

I've been meaning to buy some GBA games. Problem is I've got to buy a case separately every time I buy a handheld game.

Yeah it was pretty good. I didn't like it as much as I liked the original, due to the graphics. character models seemed too big, stuff like that. But the gameplay is just as solid as the original.

I love the GBA version of Shining Force, but I am going to add a recommendation for Final Fantasy I & II: Dawn of Souls. For a long time, that was the best version of both games, and it still holds up.

You can get some english translated copies of Mother 1+2 (yeah that second one is "Earthbound"), and the same goes for Mother 3!

You're welcome!
