Classic Gaming- Golden Sun: (2001)

There were so many great games for the Game Boy Advance handheld console during the early 2000’s.  Back in the day many of us gamers have probably taken titles like Golden Sun for granted because they were released on handheld console opposed to regular home based system. Looking back at it now some people would probably argue that a game such as Golden Sun would have been better off as a home console because the visual quality for this game was great.  When Golden Sun was developed by Camelot Software Planning and released in early 2001 many people thought that it was probably one of the best 2D role playing titles that they have ever played for a handheld console.  In fact, some people might argue that Golden Sun was good enough to be a game for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System because of its visual quality especially during battle scenes.  While the visual quality for Golden Sun was pretty good the game had also featured a decent plot involving the main characters Isaac, Ivan, Garret, Jenna and Mia.

The cool thing about Isaac was the quiet but effective hero role he was given because it was something that was very popular with other characters in older RPG games such as the Legend of Zelda and Chrono Trigger.  Not only did many people feel that Golden was an adventure RPG classic that was very exciting to play but they also thought it was probably one of the best role playing titles to have been released in year 2001.  As good as Golden Sun was has not been too many games that have been developed in the series since the release of the original title. The series has only had two sequels since it began which included “Golden Sun Lost Age” which was also released for the Game Boy Advance in 2003 and “Golden Sun Dark Dawn” for the Nintendo DS in 2010.  While options may vary on which game out of the trilogy was the best some people would probably agree that there should be a new Golden Sun title  be developed for the New Nintendo 3DS XL or should the original game receive a 3D remake altogether.
