Golden Sun

GBA (2001)

I like the hardware errors on GBA. They’re about as easy to look at as the memory card errors on memory-card-based consoles, but they feel more visceral because something would have to be seriously wrong with the cartridge to get these to show up. It makes them more “rare”, too. I’m glad the developers of Golden Sun decided to handle them with special messages! Even if they’re a bit simple, this is the kind of thing I really like. I doubt many people have seen these screens, even among superfans of the game.
