    ...for a long trip. I am leaning towards Final fantasy V and Fire Emblem, but i am not sure if those would last 6 days. Are there good RPG games like Final Fantasy for GBA right now? I already have Metroid Fusion and Metroid Zero Mission, so can you help me find the right games to last me a while?

    Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones is excellent.

    It should definitely last you 6 days... depending on how much time you except to be playing (20hrs/day would probably cause it to end before the 6 days, heh).

    Personally I think it is more *fun* then FF5, although I will be picking that up soon too.

    My personal favorite on the GBA is Golden Sun. Amazing game. Took me about a week or two (can't remember) to finish, but I used a walkthrough sometimes. :D It's not really necessary though, I just wanted to make sure I got all the Djinn (creature.. things).

    Edit: Forgot to mention, made by Camelot, and has GREAT graphics for the GBA.

    Long haul games?

    Fire Emblem did me, till it got a bit boring (along with Advance Wars - still mighty games though)
    Metroid Zero Mission
    Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (ooooh yesss)
    Golden Sun 1 and 2.

    Ya, the best games every created. Legend of Zelda: a Link To The Past. and Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. They were both on the SNES, but if you've never played them, they are awesome. Best games evar! Both are a very good length.

    Advanced Wars /2 are great games I would highly pick -- if you can find them... :rolleyes: :eek:

    Fire Emblem is also very very good, but top pick would be the Advanced Wars series.

    Replay value is fantastic and strategy is top notch.
