Goddamn, I hate Youtube commentators - this is not that kind of thread. I use "hidden gem" ironically as these retards have ruined the term. But it still means what it means. So I wanted to discuss Gameboy and GBC games you think are awesome but maybe off the radar. This is a double-edged sword, because the market is also retarded and a couple people discussing a game on a forum can send price ripples out. But fuck it, let's do it anyway.
I'll start with a couple, but depending on when I am drunk and what I am playing I will probably update sporadically.
007 James Bond (GB)
Sort of less talked about. It's an odd mix of RPG, stealth and action with some very light puzzle elements. This was one I never considered. I typically skip licensed crap unless it has Batman on the cover. But this one is surprisingly competent. I'm not sure how "James Bond" it is, other than some character names and a few 007 quips. I'm about an hour'ish into it and am totally surprised by this one and plan on finishing it.
Donald Duck Goin' Quackers (GBC)
I think this one gets tossed out for just being another Disney platformer. But if you spend a few minutes with it, you realize it's actually a pretty damn good Rayman clone. You can grab this one for cheap still.
