Since the DSi and 3DS did away with BC I'm sure there are a FEW people who traded in GBA platforms to buy newer, future proofed systems or people just regrettably got rid of them for the sake of doing so.

I, for one, traded in my DSL for a 3DS and hate myself for doing it. I played GBA/DS games on a regular basis (especially loved having FFTA/FFTA2 in the slots) and not I'm stuck with a SP1 NES special edition, which was the side-lit console, not the newer 101's with the backlit screen.

In fact I'm thinking of asking for a DSphat or Micro for Christmas since I want a crisp bright screen to play the 16-bit glory. the DSL was too small for my hands anyways and with the awkward a/b placement, playing games that required only 2 face buttons caused cramps.

Gameboy Player master race, reporting in.

If not that, then DS Phat, it's essentially a glorified GBA now anyway since my top screen bit the dust :(

I haven't played a GBA game in like... I dunno, a year or so, but at the time I played it on my regular phat DS for the sake of convenience. My preferred way of playing GBA games would be the Game Boy Player with the Hori Game Boy Player Controller, but I haven't had it hooked up in a while.

My White GBA's light is low. It has a sorta cracked screen, but it still works.
But I love a lot of GBA games, Megaman Zero, the Kirby games, Mario Advance, ETC. So GBA wins.

Because some of us own none of those except for the 3DS, which in my case is all i have aside from an original GB (lost) and an original GG. those 10 GBA games are the only ones i own so far as of this writing.

there are ways to play almost every gba game available on a 3DS(though with the occasional glitch/freeze)
I've played the gba version of super Mario world on my 3DS XL.

I play on my GBA SP now, but I lost my original GBA SP and had to play on my DS for a time. I really prefer my GBA SP for GBA games, it just makes more sense to me.
