What is the best Gameboy game of all time?

Oct 25, 2017
Alright Era what do you think is the best Gameboy game of all time? I mean OG Gameboy. None of this Gameboy Color or GBA stuff.

So what say you?

I was going to say Pokemon Crystal, but you ruled that out with GBC so I'll say Gold or Silver.

You can still play them on the original Gameboy, it counts!

The best ones are those that are relatively timeless, so Tetris and Kirby's Dream Land 1

I can seriously play Kirby's Dream Land any time, anywhere, and have a blast. It's under-appreciated to be honest.

DK '94 is also the best game with Donkey Kong in the title

Tetris was the one I played the most for single and multiplayer, just an excellent version. For stuff originating on GB, it's a tough call between Donkey Kong '94 and Link's Awakening. Bionic Commando's also up there.

Link's Awakening and it's not really a contest, imo.
Oh wait, Pokemon Silver ran on those as well? I thought they were only on GB Color. Well then...

That’s a tough question to answer but I’d probably have to go with Tetris or links awakening although I never played links awakening until I had it on my 3ds. But I used to play Tetris with my friends with the link cable all the time back in the day.
