Yesterday, while cleaning up my media center, I found my copy of Ratchet & Clank: Into The Nexus, which I bought sometime before Christmas last year. I had been pretty excited about this game pre-release, what with it being the first "traditional", albeit shorter than usual,...

Get you some Advance Wars.

I never really had a go with the Advance, as my younger brother claimed it and was very territorial then. F yeah for Triforce power, though.

I love the GBA Castlevania titles
Circle of the Moon in particular. It was the first, so there are improvements in the following games, but I loved it better than the rest.
Harmony of Disonnance I didn't get into as much as CotM and AoS, but it's still a quality Castlevania romp.
Aria of Sorrow obviously got a bit more anime-style and continued onto the DS, but Aria of Sorrow is still the tighter, more action-heavy Castlevania title.

If you have to pick one, make it Circle of the Moon or Aria of Sorrow.

All of the Pokemon games. I see you've got Fire Red listed. Don't forget Leaf Green, Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. And no, it's not going overboard.

Give "Double Dragon Advance" a try, if you are into 2D side-scrolling brawlers.
