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.

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

A bit of a crack choice - and more of a Game Boy Color thing, but I found Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets to be a beautiful game, both musically and visually.
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.

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:
Pokémon
Mario
Wario (Especially Wario Land 3)
Zelda
Etc.

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.
