  1. That little penguin game is actually the first game that hideo kojima ever worked on. Worth mentioning.

  2. Dude I still own my original copy of metal gear solid for gbc

  3. How dare you say that about Metal Gear? It's okay if you don't like them but you didn't need to call them "overhyped garbage", because they are definitely not. They are liked for a good reason. Good story, music and gameplay.

  4. From this list, these are the games I WILL play 😎
    Thank you for making this list 😊👍🏻

    Ghosts 'n' Goblins
    Alone in the Dark <–#1
    Perfect Dark
    Resident Evil
    Harvest moon
    Bionic Commando
    Rainbow 6
    Cannon Fodder
    Megaman, Zelda and Pkm are just too obvious 😅
    I prefer DK Country on the snes. The sound and music is so good 🥰
    For Dragon Quest, I just prefer the Dragon Quest Monsters Joker series 😅😋

  5. カバンきはけぬまきま緊縛きはかにくはか鎌ヶ谷けまなか く我慢 きなか かまかかくAC くきなき か曲がったまかせ きくけかまなく泣かないではかまかかさきか書いてるのではくけくかけなきまままむままままむまま間間豆見ままかまか泣かないできあかはきたか汚い鍛えかきはかかなか月 かかはまはなく気功か位やくらいにくらいにかあくはき2522蚊は きこ下まあかま下まここき かききかかるけさかまってかまかまま美馬まま間まくまキングPAPけま書いてたかま気紛れ気紛れ かきなかまこまカマタマーレ讃岐きなたきま喜けかたこ激怒 き かまかかきかかききくかかきき

  6. There are a number of games I would have skipped if it wasn't for this list. So, thank you for making this video!

  7. What about Kirby and the Amazing mirrors?

  8. Blade!!!!! I was looking for that I remember playing it as a kid just found my old GBC THANK YOU SO MUCH 😲😲😲😲

  9. Aw man how could you ignore Game & Watch Gallery 2? Literally the best Game Boy game objectively

  10. I never got around to playing the GBC much. Had a GBA tho.had to get a ds to play Dragon Quest 9.
    Got it for all the RPG remakes.
    I gotta get 3ds just to play Dragon Quest 11

  11. I have:
    Alone In The Dark The New Nightmare
    Kirby Tilt ‘N’ Tumble
    Perfect Dark
    Resident Evil Gaiden
    R-Type DX
    Bionic Commando Elite Forces
    Megaman Xtreme 2
    Pokémon Silver/Gold/Crystal
    Donkey Kong Country
    Mario Golf
    Dragon Warrior III
    Mario Tennis
    Super Mario Bros. Deluxe
    Tetris DX
    Pokémon Trading Card Game
    Metal Gear Solid
    The Legend of Zelda Link’s Awakening DX
    The Legend of Zelda Oracle of Ages & Oracle of Seasons

  12. Of the Honorable Mentions I have:
    Wario Land II
    Prince of Persia
    Spider-Man 2: Sinister Six
    Tomb Raider
    Tomb Raider: Curse of the Sword

  13. Good list but Lufia, Conkers Pocket Tales and the Dragon Quest Monsters games are in the Top 20 for me.

  14. Play The Harry Potter games on GBC. THOSE WERE FANTASTIC!

  15. It's definitely a huge difference of opinion because for me personally, a lot of the ones that didn't make it were a lot better than the actual games that did make it.

  16. Wario Land 2 is a GB original, they just made it into a GBC.

  17. What trips me out is how many gamrs appeared on it that were on Super Nintendo. Like Donkey Kong Country

  18. Is it just me, or is the Gameboy Color version of Motocross Maniacs (aka Bikers) on the Konami compilation feel a bit sluggish and "off", compared to the original standalone GB game? I can't quite put my finger on it, but it obviously looks more colourful at least!

  19. Harry potter 1 and 2 for gbc are fun and no one mentions them same with heros might and magic 1 and 2 for gbc

  20. I do not agree with putting Pokémon Pinball that high, where the splitscreen of the game was the most annoying thing instead of making the viewport a scrolling, ball-focused manner, and the idea of listing a Pinball game made for a display which can't even show the whole playfield, and therefore forego Wario Land II, which was pretty much the waymaker for Wario III. What I also missed is to give games roughly an equal time to show, if not a sweet turnpoint like you did for Zelda Link's Awakening. Otherwise I totally agree with your choice for #1, as the games are the ultimate point of what the Game Boy Color can do in graphics (next to Test Drive Le Mans), sound and connectivity – even if Pokémon trumps the last of the Zelda games for the platform in regards to multiplayer, and the third of the Oracles games had to be canned for making the possible combinations for the whole adventure feasible.

  21. Who said I'm buying them you can download them for free duhhhh silly goose

  22. Or you can get it for free by downloading it duhhhh?

  23. Pokemon TCG has a sequel on the GBC that's been translated to English in recent years.

  24. @Juganawt Given you seem to like strategy games, I'm surprised.that Warlocked didn't make this list. Was this intentional or have you not played it?

  25. Thank you very much for compiling this excellent compilation! 🙂

  26. Small correction. Yie Ar Kung Fu was on Arcade Advanced for GBA. Along with Rush-n-Attack, Gyruss, Frogger, Scramble, and Time Pilot.

  27. I like your video, but Its not a "NEZ" Its pronounced "NESS" or call it a Nintendo or an N-E-S.

  28. Zelda oracles are a masterpiece. It's my first zelda game and i love it. I hope it'll get a remake like links awakening on switch. One of the best game i played was a game exclusive only in japan named monster tactics. I played it a lot even though i don't understand the story well since there's no english sub on it.

  29. Can someone tell me the name of the game, its like alleyway but its a worm and it transform to snakes dragon etc

  30. For a Brit to miss any Harry Potter game, which were absolute gems, is absolute sin.

  31. What a fantastic list even if I am 7 years late.

  32. Loony tunes collector alert! And martian revenge! …

  33. I'm just grateful you mentioned Shadowgate classic which I'm currently playing! Great list

  34. I only got a gbc to play pokemon games same for the n64 pokemania era

  35. Ur the shit man! I like your no bs, to the point approach plus your opinions are refreshing and original, props 👊

  36. Stay away from Wacky Races. There’s no run off area. I didn’t find it fun.

  37. I know 50 time stamps are too much to ask for, but would love it
