I compared the Zelda Minish Cap and Mario VS Donkey Kong between the 3DS GBA and the original GBA.

The original GBA looks much brighter and easy to use the A & B buttons while the 3DS GBA looks a bit bigger, but the screen looks a bit dim. The controls are A & B just like the NES version and small.

I'll keep these 5 games:

Metroid Fusion
Mario Kart
F-Zero
WarioWare
Fire Emblem

The remaining 5, I'll erase them, since I own these original GBA games.

At least, we are getting 100 CN next week. After that, I'm 50 coins short to reach Platinum.

Try holding select as you load one up. Normally the image is stretched to fit the screen, but holding Select forces it to keep the original resolution.

Also, how can anything on any DS system not look brighter than something on the original GBA, since that lacked backlighting? =p

Could always argue the SP brightness though.

Hey, since you have the original minish cap, can you tell me if rolling 5 times in a row will make link dizzy(in the original GBA game)?

I could've sworn Minish Cap made you dizzy when you rolled a bunch of times in a row...

Maybe it was a different Zelda game that did that, then.

My screen is on max brightness with color saving mode off.
How is it that my screen gets dimmer when I play the GBA games? This does not happen with the NES games.

Even my PC emulator does a better job with the GBA games.
