    what is it about GBAtemp that compels you to stay?

    for me, i guess i just to hang around other NDS gamers cuz i dont know a lot of people that are in real life
    also, i get a good amount of news and i like talking to the interesting people on here

    Also, it's the best place on the Internet to get the news about NDS and Wii games, emulation and homebrew [​IMG]

    The community. I've been here for years and it's the only forum where I've felt compelled to stick around. This is my home away from home, and some of you folks are like family. [​IMG]

    In general, the people are respectful and helpful around here...and the exceptions don't last long.

    Other than that, I don't know why else I keep coming back, I don't really like Nintendo systems in general. I only own a GBA SP (which hasn't been turned on in like 2 years), and a DS (which hasn't been used since I got a PSP). And yet, no one treats me like an outcast just because I don't think Nintendo is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    It's a community for gamers, not fanboys, and that puts it a step ahead of every other board out there.

    I'd like to go, but I'm handcuffed to the bed, so to speak.

    Im mainly here at GBAtemp for homebrew news. It just helps that theres a great forum here. I also got bored of all forums I was with in the past.
