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.

In Samurai Warrior Chronicles for the 3DS, I use the select button to skip cutscenes.

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'm sure we'll use them for the GB games.

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.

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.
