For those out there with a DS original and a DS Lite, do you ever play your old GBA games on your DS anymore? I never had a GBA or anything so I am not sure how the quality on the DS with GBA games fare as opposed to the original hardware it was meant for.

I'd like to hear your answers.

I have a DSi so I can't. But I have a GBAsp so it isn't a problem. But I played GBC games on the GBA and it looked a little better.

Not anymore, I've played and finished all GBA games that I like. I have a DSi now but I kept my DS lite just incase I want to play some GBA games again. GBA games looks the same on the DS as when you play them on a GBA.

All the time. I have a lot of GBA games, so I still play them a lot. I have a GBA SP, but I reserve that sucker for my older Gameboy games.

I still use my GBA games all the time. I still play the Pokemon games so I can transfer them to Pokemon Diamond. I also still play Harvest moon: Friends of Mineral town and Sword of Mana.

Golden Sun basically lives in my GBA slot. And the quality is fine, it's usually better, mainly because the DS has brighter screens.

All the time. It's one of the reasons I haven't bothered trading for a DSi.

I was playing Drill Dozer just yesterday.

Yep I do, the GBA Pokemon games are the reason I kept my Lite when I got a DSi, and having the two is great because i no longer need to borrow my girlfriends DS to transfer Pokemon.

Yes I do. A Link to the Past, Metroid Fusion, Fire Emblem and M&L: Superstar Saga are some fantastic GBA games I'm really glad I can enjoy on my Lite.

After I got my DS Lite, I stopped playing GBA games. Now that I have a DSi, well I can't play GBA games anyway.

I honestly don't play my GBA games too often anymore. Almost all the ones I have are Pokemon games.

I started playing the Castlevania Double Pack, but I'm playing it on my SP. My Lite has a broken hinge, so it can get kind of annoying playing it. Since I have to hold it open.

I did once or twice but I never owned a GBA so I didn't have any games, just borrowed some. So when I got the DSi I wasn't missing anything.

I only bought a DS Lite recently, and only have one DS game for it. :P For now, I think I'll stick with DS games for the most part, with maybe one or two exceptions, but I do plan to use that feature eventually. There are a lot of games out for it that I'm interested in trying out, it's just that I'd prefer to explore the newer games before really getting into those games.

I play them all the time. I've picked up a lot of awesome gba games pretty cheaply, and I never had a gba, so I play them on my lites. I am planning on getting a dsi in the next couple months (there are some dsiware games I'd love), but I'm going to keep both my lites. I could never sell them!

I play my GBA games on my DS a lot more than I do my DS games, surprisingly. Then again -- I don't have any major games on my DS like some people do.. I mainly have Animal Crossing and other "boredom killers" so to speak, no major RPG's (I know, you can stone me to death now). But I love playing my Final Fantasy Tactics Advance game on my DS, and my Harvest Moon games. :] Oh and let's not forget the Mario games, and Kirby.. and..and.. yeah, you get the picture. Haha.

Yeah, I still do. I sold my old GBA, so my DS Lite is the only way I can play GBA games now, and I play them just as often as I always have. I just replayed Tales of Phantasia kinda recently, and I even bought a new one I just haven't gotten around to yet. Final Fantasy VI.

Not including a GBA slot in the DSI angers me. It's one of the reasons I didn't buy it.

Heck yes. Its one of the reason why I bought a Lite in the first place. The graphics are MUCH cleaner looking on the DS than the GBA.

Of course. I love going back and replaying Breath of Fire II, Golden Sun, and Pokemon Ruby on my DS. I refuse to get a DSi because of my GBA slot.

Hell yeah, it's why I haven't upgraded to a DSi yet, much as the XL tempts me. I'm still playing Pokemon LeafGreen and the GBA Metroids and Superstar Saga and...
