Like you said the GBA was a huge mistake with only two buttons. I seriously don't understand the thinking behind that considering the SNES had 4 and they were planning to port a load of Snes titles...
The Snes also has a bigger library of quality titles than the GBA so that's why it is still my favourite
Edit: oh and before I forget, the one thing that moves the GBA a little closer to the Snes is the GBA Player for the Gamecube. It is great playing those GBA titles on the TV and they look so good too

That reminds me of the Super Nintendo: Game Boy Color porter. It was basically the same concept. You play it on your TV hehe.

As for which one is better? The SNES of course.
It has a larger screen, better graphics capabilities in it's hardware and better games.
The GBA doesn't look so hot off it's tiny little screen on a TV OR emulated fullscreen even with 2xSAI filtering. And 99% of it's good titles are re-hashed from SNES titles, which IMO they don't even count.
P.S. You are comparing apples and oranges.
Seems someone doesn't know his Nintendo hardware very well to have not known it's name.

Even though GBA is newer, many classics are featured on SNES.
Mostly, a lot of games on the Snes can be played over and over again

hmm, have you used a GBA... it actually have 4 buttons - 2 shoulder. There is a great interview witht he designer of GBA in the latest Equip magazine which I would recommend for reading - very entertaining indeed.

Snes is superior in a very rose tinted way.

Your right but the Start & Select don't really count since you don't use those. So thats what we mean by 2 buttons, the A & the B.

And one huge advantage that GBA has over the SNES is that it is portable. You can't expect a huge screen on something that is meant to fit in your pocket. All in all, I favor GBA.

HOWEVER, 2-d still owns 3-d in fighting games
2-d Marvel vs Capcom and Capcom vs Snk 2 (Awesome Skill Games)
3-D Tekken and Virtual Fighter (Dumb Button Smashing Games)
As for Snes not being portable:
SNES + Dreamcast = Owned!
I'm mostly a PSX and PC Fan so I'm not really sure since they ARE the same company
Snes is still better in my opinion
