If you discount backwards compatibility, I think I would have to say I prefer the GBA library.

GBA was better by far.
Especially the SP.

I say both were almost the same in terms of game library.

DS; no contest. Third party support was much better, you had online play, more versatility in genre, etc.

GBA. The DS has better hardware, yes. But it's games? I didn't find them to be as magical compared to the other handhelds.

A good question is, how old were you when you played the GBA? :v The younger you are, the more magical games are going to feel.

This, though idk about online play since it was still pretty horrendous on the DS *shivers @ WEP input*. But otherwise, better third party support was a big plus for the DS imo.

GBA has Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga.

Point is now invalid.
