DS, though it's a close call.

It really is the DS, but that doesn't mean it was an easy choice. GBA is a close second. CLOSE...

GBA, it had more games that kept my attention and I also happened to be in the target audience of most of those games at the time. Yeah, DS can play GBA games but I think TC means if you look at only their games. In that case I would pick GBA, but being able to play Golden Sun on the DS is always nice. I still think they should've included that in the 3DS but beggars can't be choosers.
(Now playing Dead Island, Vanquish, and PSASBR Beta)

DS, because it could also play GBA.

GBA, because it could also play GB and GBC games.

DS, because it could play GBA and emulate GB and GBC games.

GBA for me. 90% of the games I played on the DS were Pokemon Games and Final Fantasy spin offs, which is cool, but it has more to do with me no longer liking playing on handhelds since I only play at home with them now. I would probably feel the same way about the GBA if I had it as an older teenager+ like the DS
Rainbow Dash is best pony. The only argument I will accept is for Twilight Sparkle.

That's tough. I got a lot of use from both, but overall a little more from DS. I think the GBA had a lot of charm though and was an excellent handheld for its time. I've even been contemplating picking up an SP sometime, that was probably my favorite handheld. I had one that took so many beatings.

GBA. It had the e-reader.
If you can read thank a teacher, if you can read this thank a gun manufacturer.
