Here's some of the one's that blew me away.

Max Payne on the GBA

How did I not know this existed until just now?!

... Probably because back when the GBA was out the only games I really cared about on the system were Pokémon, lol.

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

I'm still floored by Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 on GBA.

Watch me stream games and hunt trophies on my Twitch channel!

The original Shantae for the Gameboy Color. Looks more like a GBA game in every way

TMNT IV: Turtles in Time. Most specifically that they managed to cram the whole arcade game plus versus plus 2 additional stages into an 8Mbit (=1MB) Cartridge

Any game using the undocumented, because unknown to the developers of said card, 160x100 16 color Text Mode for CGA graphic cards on PC. Keep in mind CGA is supposed to have 4 colors max at once.

Speaking of PC, the 1988 french game Le Manoir de Mortevielle. Why? Because it used robotized speech (as in, the software reads the text and and speaks it) in it's game. Keep in mind the game is less than 1MB big

Any game developer who says the real time terrain deformation is not feasible on today's hardware should play both Magic carpet titles. They did it in 1995 and 1997 - completely in software without any hardware acceleration at all!

007 Night fire on the Gameboy Advance.

Stunt car racer on C64 (atleast to me that played the Amiga version first)
