Does anyone ever use the Start or Select buttons? Do any games use them? I don't think I've ever used either of them. Just used the Home and Start buttons.

The only button I've never used is the select button. I can't even currently think of a DS or 3DS game that uses that button...
I use the start button for pausing, obviously, though I do sometimes just skip pausing and close the console; it doesn't really make a difference to me.


EDIT: I'm playing Super Mario 64 DS right now and pressed the select button to see what would happen, and the control settings menu came up. ;)

I love the select button. If a game makes full advantage of the select button it's sure to be a masterpiece.
For example, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga.
See? If only more games would use it, I would be a happier person.

Since this is in the 3DS section, I'll say that the select button seems to hardly ever be used. Otherwise, I press start to pause the game.

I really hope they map Start to X and Select to Y for GB/C games, i don't really like using the Start/Select buttons on the 3DS, and many game boy games use them for menus you need to visit regularly.

Oh look! A Morphloggery.

I use it for previous ds games like monster tale and ...I think pokemon for managing moves. I do like how they cushion though.

To reduce the DS games to its original resolution. Other than that, just the start button.

The Select button is the most under-appreciated button.
