Because it actually has a huge selection of quality games. It's just the piracy problem that killed it. A lot of the good games are Japanese exclusives because of this, too. --- http://img26.imageshack.us/img26/9547/17817459.png
It's not a fair comparison. The 3DS is still basically new. The GBA is over. Surely the GBA (and also the DS) were amazing systems, but we can look back on them and all of their games in totality. Ask again in 5 years.
