It was a temporary rom hosting site for GBA games. But then it evolved into what it is today.
The GBA is old and discussions about it is not as common, so it has gone to the "other" section.

I'm more concerned about the "Independent Gaming Community" line on the marquee. What are we independent from?
It means Uncle Nintendo isn't paying us for high review scores ;O;

Edit... you take the time to do a bit of research and apparently it all gets taken before you post. Oh well.

Am I hallucinating http://gbatemp.net/categories/nintendo-gba-discussions.32/ ?

It used to be underground, the change was recent.

Anyway independent, not beholden to anybody (CBS own gamespot, gamefaqs, giant bomb and metacritic and gamerankings in case you did not already know, many others are also owned by one of a small number of companies), free to do our own thing, final decisions in creative control rest in house...

I believe this is not the first thread I saw with this question.
Seriously, is this so hard to find?
