Donkey Kong GB
Wario Land II
Super Mario Land 2
Game & Watch Gallery 2
Godzilla (Never finishied it)
Sylvester & Tweety
Tetris DX

Other than the obvious choices I played a lot of Revenge of the Gator back in the Original Game Boy Days(tm). I picked it up again for the DS Virtual Console, and it's just as mediocre as I remember it, but I still enjoy it.

I spent way too many hours on Donkey Kong, mostly via the Super Game Boy and got what I considered to be respectably decent at it.

I also liked Quarth. I mean, I *assume* I would have liked it. I played it exactly once on a school field trip for, like 15 minutes, and enjoyed it. And then I've never seen it anywhere since. I've checked eBay occasionally to make sure that I didn't hallucinate and was actually playing Mr. Chin's Gourmet Paradise or something, but the game does really exist. I should pick up a copy sometime.

Pokémon Red, for sure. I wish I could reminisce about my faves from way back when, buuuut I just fished it out of my game crate and the battery's dead. welp

Also, Solar Striker. It's not /great/, but it's a solid shmup. (also the first level's soundtrack is great and needs a proper remix stat)

I didn't get an OG Game Boy until Zelda was announced. I traded my Super Scope 6 for one (with Tetris and a chargeable pack) with a friend of mine, and while that probably wasn't a smart move in terms of future value, I don't regret my decision as I got a lot more play out of the Game Boy than the Super Scope. I bought Zelda on Day One, and it's still my favorite out of the GB library.

I also have a soft spot for Final Fantasy Adventure, though I don't own a copy. Donkey Kong 94 was actually one of the few small-stage puzzle games I ended up enjoying. Honestly I'm drawing a blank on other titles. I didn't play a whole lot of GB games since the one place that actually rented out Game Boy games went out of business like a year or two before I got mine, so up until emulation was an option, I missed out on a lot.

I have many favorites, just too many obvious ones that would take too long to post here, but one game that will have a place in my heart is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan! It's the very first video game I ever played!

Just a few others:
Wario (Especially Wario Land 3)

Not a bad jRPG-style game either.

I would never have found it had my morbid curiosity over it existing not gotten the better of me - I had the Game Boy Advance game first.
That one was awful!

I would have brought this matter up if it weren't for this being a classic GB thread only. I have HP and the philosophers stone on the GBC, and it's a pretty darn great GBC RPG, CoS improves upon a lot of things in it, such as making the different spell classes a bit more intuitive. (Though I never managed to finish CoS since my patience in RPGs have gone downhill a lot).

Anyway, as far as my favs on the OG Game Boy goes (from top to bottom):

Pokemon Red
Super Mario Land 2
Zelda Link's Awakening
Kirby's Dreamland
Metroid 2

I only actually owned two of these though. <.<;
(I owned the DX version of LA, but that's mostly the same game).

To be honest, there aren't that many titles on the OG gameboy that I find that great, not anymore. My first GB was a pocket so it's not like I wasn't there for the B/W stuff, but most games were kinda simplistic and not that great. There are the exceptional amazing games, but most don't even come close.

surprised to see this is the only mention of metroid 2 but geez that game is underrated, it's so spookily engrossing

also Wario Land 2 and Kirby's Dream Land 1+2 are great too

and ofc the Pokemon games

I really like Bubble Ghost. Really fun game to try to improve at, and it has awesome music.

Donkey Kong is an absolute masterpiece of a game, and imo the only reason it doesn't get more attention is because of its name.

Also I'm a massive fan of Mario Golf and Mario Tennis for GBC.

All the Mega Man games except II are worth playing if you like the NES games, although most are rehashes of NES stages and bosses.
Posts: 111/116
I strongly recommend Mega Man V if you haven't played it yet. While it's mostly the same, having eight new bosses and a new starting weapon besides the Mega Buster is quite a nice change.

Then there's the OST which is also very impressive for a Game Boy game. I'd give it a listen to if you have some free time.

I'm another in the "all my favorites have been mentioned already" group. To contribute to this, though, I recall having fun with Pocket Bomberman (not the color version), which is like Bomberman as a 2D platformer. I don't think I got very far in it, though.

I refuse to honor this segregation of color games and black/white games. They are all Game Boy games.

Yeah, another one of the "all my favorites got mentioned already" people, but Wario Land 3 is also good (though nobody seems to like it over the former two; I think it's better than WL1 at least) ...

I love Wario Land 3, but it's a GBC exclusive.

I never played many Game Boy games, but of the few I have played, Donkey Kong was quite a fun game. I remember that I didn't play through all of it, but exactly where I stopped will be a mistery because I don't have the save file for it anymore.

I still remember how the intro noise was loud enough that my mom thought there was an UFO nearby or something. I was like "Why would you think there's an UFO nearby?".

Tobu Tobu Girl!! it's very cute and fun

Also all the Kirby games, Link's Awakening, and Trip World
and Metroid 2

less favourite but still very good are also Megaman IV and V

and probably a lot of games, i used to play a lot gameboy games, but somehow my memory of them blurs them all that none stand out
maybe it's more that it's full of not so much "favourite" as a lot of "nice little game i like"

also the unused panel de pon minigame in pokemon puzzle challenge
