Quite frankly its a toss really, i love the simplicity of the GBA, i love how all the package of one game was on the cart, although i hated how some were battery save. It was a very innovated system that went with gameplay over graphics and in all honesty i still love mine to this day i cant give it up. Now my second option is the 3ds, i mean you can play ds, nes, gb, gb, gbc, dsi and its own 3ds all in one system. Ultimately my only downfall with the ds is most games gave bonus for those with wifi and i always felt left out....that is until black and white, but regardless i did like the ds it did introduce me to professor layton and did love henry hatsworth and it was nice seeing more classics like chrono trigger and dragon quest on there though, but the 3ds i love, compatibility with my router, unique gameplay, high end graphics, my only gripe is dlc especially for a person who is obessessive over obtaining everything on a game....it makes the game feel incomplete knowing i cant get that level or item. Online play....meh never was big on it. Anyways those are my votes :p would love to hear more.

3DS XL because it's got a big screen and can play all of the fantastic DS library and the already-pretty-good 3DS library, AND it can theoretically also play awesome GBA and SNES games.

It hasn't yet, but it could.

I really liked my GBA the best. I have owned the original gameboy and I guess for that time period it was decent. But the GBA was just so much more fun, games like Golden Sun really made that handheld stay in my mind. but then again it was also the GBA that led to a near 10 years of not owning a dedicated gaming handheld until a few days ago when i bought a 3ds xl. So far the 3ds is impressive as hell, and like others have said i think its super cool how it can play old school games like kirbys dream land.

In all honesty...other than a few mandatory games (I classify certain games as mandatory for my collection) I have more fun with GBA XD
