List Rules Games don't have to be console exclusive, as long as they were released for Game Boy Advance at some point.

If you owned a Game Boy Advance at any time during your life, then it's safe to say there were probably a few RPGs in your collection. There's something about role playing games that really capture your imagination and make you feel like you're part of another world. Your party always has colorful characters, the abilities you gain along the way are amazing, and boss battles are usually nothing short of epic. With so many great options to choose from, there was never a shortage of games to play for fans of the genre. Since some games were much better than others, we've decided to rank the best Game Boy Advance RPGs of all time.

This list will feature the most popular and best selling RPGs that were released for Game Boy Advance. While many of these games were console exclusive, we're allowing non-exclusives to be a part of the list as well. Games on this list include Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Final Fantasy VI.
