How to find GBA roms online

Tutorial: How to find GBA roms online

Disclaimer: If you don't own the physical cartridge of the downloaded roms you have 24 hours to try it out then you have to delete it.

The easiest way to find GBA roms is to download P2P clients like Limewire or Bittorrent. The down-side to using bittorrent is the size of the download. Since BT was made for easy distribution of large files, actual GBA zips are like more than 1 gig of collected titles, though that's not so bad depending on your internet connection.

However, if you have a slow connection it's easier to use Limewire if you only need one or two titles that you need. For single downloads, you can also use Google to search for GBA roms, but the good sites are slowly dying one by one.

If you're using Google instead of typing "GBA roms" for a search string, try typing "insert title of a GBA game here GBA rom." For example: "kingdom hearts GBA rom." Believe me, that's the best search string to use since it narrows out the search to one title.
