For me, the reason why I decided many years ago to give Emacs a try is the nice integration between Emacs and REPLs; it's really nice to be able to press `C-c C-l` (or something equivalent) and have the content of the file loaded into the currently running REPL. This makes experimentation and incremental development much more fun.
