Game Boy Advance Tribute

While the Super Nintendo gets the most love for being the height o’ 2D, pixelated games, & I have a lot o’ nostalgia for it as well, I remember the Game Boy Advance just as fondly, e’en though it doesn’t get nearly as much credit.

15 years ago the Game Boy Advance was released in Japan—& in June that will apply to Europe & the US. Thus in following months or so I’ll be writing articles on the games for which I have the greatest nostalgia1. While I’ll sometimes have analyses o’ the games themselves, the main focus will be my initial impressions o’ these games upon 1st playing them in the early 2000s, thereby proving this is a true blog—i.e. an exercise in narcissism.

Games I’ll be examining (not necessarily exhaustive):

  • The Super Mario Advance games
  • Mario Kart: Super Circuit
  • Wario Land 4
  • WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! & Twisted!
  • Game & Watch Gallery 4
  • Kirby & the Amazing Mirror
  • The Donkey Kong Country remakes

1This should make up for my scandalous neglect o’ finishing & posting my 15-year tribute to Wario Land 3, civilization’s greatest achievement, May 2015.

O well, I guess there’s always the 20-year tribute for 2020 (& a much-mo’ in-depth fan site I already made).
