    ....or is the Gameboy Advance extremely underrated. The GBA trumps all in my book.

    1.GBA
    2.360
    3.Wii

    I mean, I had tons of games on there that were just amazing, people always seem to skip it.

    Guy1: "Gameboy color man, that's when it all started....then the light on the SP! How revolutionary! And now the DS, geez, Nintendo you're amazing."

    Guy2: "Aren't you forgetting something....?"

    Guy1: "?"

    Guy2: "GBA!!!!!"

    Guy1: "Oh ya, well I don't ever remember that one, what so special about it anyway."

    Guy2: "I'll you what, Guy1, it provided the most gaming fun i've had on any other console, it could play any my old Poke games, plus ruby/sapph, it could hook up to my GC, it could provide hours of play like nothing else could, it was a good shape/size...."

    Guy1: "Oh ya, I guess it does kick ass!"

    Guy2: "Hell yes it does!"

    Guy1: "But the DS....."

    Guy2: "Shut up!"

    GBA was good, but I'm liking the DS better.

    The GBA basically was just a revamp of the previous gameboys. The DS like the Wii is different, and the touchscreen has brought life to new games that wouldn't be possible on the PSP or GBA. Not to mention it was the first nintendo handheld to look cool, now people aren't afraid to take it out in public! Online multiplayer and wireless download play is simple and awesome to do too.

    Of course there are exceptions.

    Whenever I took out my GBA, I also wished it would look a little less like a child's toy. The SP sort of pulled off the mature look, but the Lite nailed it.

    I love GBA cause the games are graphically similar to the SNES

    Yes the DS is cool....I guess we all have our different opinions.

    Like how I still like the gamecube over the Wii right now. It has Naruto: CoN games (they're fun), SSBM, Tales of Symphonia, Double Dash, Windwaker, 3 Metroid games....Wii just doesn't have as much right now.

    Yes that's quite true, but not so unexpected during the early life of a console. Wii could certainly use a few more great titles but they're coming, I promise =)

    Kirby (Wii)
    Forever Blue
    There's going to be a new LoZ
    MP8

    Sounds good to me. I'll certainly buy Galaxy, Brawl, Zelda, Metroid and Animal Crossing - unless something catastrophic happens. I'm probably looking forward to Galaxy the most.

    Anyway, as for the GBA, I didn't ever own one as at the time I didn't have much use for a portable gaming system. Now that I have my DS I'm quite interested in getting my hands on some of the great GBA titles.

    As well as you should be, they're probably very in-expensive now as well. The only DS title i've found that is great so far is Custom Robo: Arena (one of the greatest handheld titles i've ever bought).

    Custom Robo eh? I'll look out for it. I've read a little about it and it does seem pretty cool.
