I've had a tickling to play some old RPG's as of late. Played out everything I've got on the SNES, so I turn to my second retro platform of choice, the GBA. I'm looking for some awesome RPGs, preferably with long play times to keep me out of trouble for a while. As a quick heads up, I've played the Final Fantasy games on it (including, and loved, Tactics). Were there any other RPG gems on the system?
Great GBA RPGs?
This is based on what nobody else has said yet.
- Breath of Fire
- Breath of Fire II
- Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
- Riviera The Promised Land
- Shining Force Resurrection of the Dark Dragon
- Shining Soul
- Shining Soul II
- Super Robot Taisen Original Generation
- Super Robot Taisen Original Generation 2
- Tales of Phantasia
- Zoids Legacy (My personal favorite)
Yeah, you might be right about that one.

While they are nostalgic for me, I think they'd be too easy for a new player, especially 3rd gen.

I also agree with Fire Emblem and Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga. I wasn't a big fan of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, but it's a decent RPG.

Hell yeah! Great SRPG. I also agree on Fire Emblem, M&L: Superstar Saga, and I'll throw in my support for Golden Sun. Looking back, I have no idea how I ever had the time to play all those. No wait, that's right, I didn't have a life back then. Still, excellent games.
Add Boktai to those mentioned. The light sensing mechanic is cool and kinda quirky...
