How to make GBA games on your 3DS not look like ass

It was really nice of Nintendo to give us Ambassadors all of these free GBA games, but man, they looked all stretched and washed out. I remember these games being beautiful. Is my memory fading, or is it the 3DS pulling some funny sh*t?

It's the 3DS, of course. Nothing's wrong with the top screen, but something is up with how legacy games are stretched to fit it.

Here's the easy fix: Hold SELECT when starting a 3DS game. That's it! The system will change the display mode to show the title in its original resolution. This also works with Game Boy games, and the system displays a cute Game Boy frame graphic around your title. 

The only drawback is that the original resolution is much smaller. Still, I'd rather enjoy the game in its non-stretched form.
