Final Fantasy Adventure

Action RPGs may be the best genre for handheld consoles, since their little numbers and worlds are perfect because of the simple, yet engrossing action. Before Link’s Awakening, Final Fantasy Adventure was a revelation for the Gameboy. The game is short, sweet, and immensely playable. Instead of gadgets and dungeon-specific items, FFA has spells, weapons with world effects (like chopping down trees), and party members that attack and use unique abilities like healing or opening a shop with the in-menu ASK command. It feels like the kind of game that video game characters would play themselves, in the best way.
