How appropriate that for Valentine's day we take a look at the top 10 games for my first love, the Nintendo Game Boy.

Image

If you need a reminder, here's a list of Game Boy games for you.

Remember, we're only looking for games that work on the original Game Boy and not any of the later iterations.

Just list your top 10 below (each counts for one vote, so ranking them isn't important).

Voting is open for a month, and will close on 2 March.

With the influx of ex-SONM members, I look forward to seeing what everyone nominates in this latest poll.

It's a trick vote, all Game Boy games work on the later iterations! ;)

"looking for games that work on the original Game Boy and not any of the later iterations" == "games that ONLY work on the original Game Boy"

I'll stop my pedantic derailing now :simper:

Just not played enough of Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening to justify including it in my list.
