I'm going to have to choose the DS. GBA was awesome no doubt, but the DS's software lineup of quality titles kept me more interested in it throughout it's life cycle imo.
What do you guys think?

If it wasn't for alot of the ds games were wifi for extra fun and the fact that my router wasn't compatible with ds games then I would go with that. It's hard to get extra challenges through wifi when you have to hike to a mcdonalds >.>. So the gba wins, I'm just glad my 3ds is compatible with my router. --- Current Systems: 3DS, DSlite, IPod Touch If There is Evil in this world it lurks in the hearts of Man- Tales of Phantasia

GBA, the SP in particular. The DS may have been able to play GBA games, but there was no way to use any multiplayer functions in them, and no backwards compatibility with the Game Boy library. The DS also has awful sound for most games IMO. --- DLC, online passes and the rise of casual budget gaming have ruined the video game industry.

The GBA really amazed me and gave me some of my favorite franchises (Advance Wars, Megaman Zero), but the DS was such a complete monster of a game system that even the GBA can't compare. IMO, it's in the running for best system ever. TWEWY, Space Invaders Extreme, Sonic Rush, and even Tetris was amazing. It did a lot of great things.
