Retro Tech: Game Boy

  • Δημοσιεύτηκε στις 19 Απρ 2019
  • The Game Boy is the most popular handheld gaming console ever. It allowed us to take games like Tetris, Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda with us on-the-go, changing the gaming industry and our free time forever. On the 30th anniversary of its release, Marques Brownlee unboxes and explores how the Game Boy came to be, it's impact on society, and why it's leaving us feeling so nostalgic.

    My brother found a Gameboy color in the woods on a camping trip like 6 years ago. It had Pokemon yellow in it and he still plays it today. Like, he listens to video essays on his phone while playing a Gameboy color.

    The only "console" i ever owned. I grew up a PC gamer but I owned 4 game boys over time and still have one. I loved it and spent more hours playing it than the longest playtime of any game on anyone on steam.

    i was born in 1988. Grew up with GB, GBC, NES and SNES. Back in the day it was really fun not because of the games but the companionship it generates with other people. I still remember having a sleep over at my cousins house. The 4 of us would tried to stay up the whole night to play their NES.

    But I'm afraid that it's hard to truly capture the excitement, the promise, the vision, what it meant to and how it captivated people back then. This was a good review, but it lacked that emotional *umph* I was hoping for.

    The lick was dope.
    It was because those bricks were always in moms bag(made em taste and smell like perfume and lipstick) or in the backpack(graphite, ink)
    A pristine Gameboy is always a good lick.

    Makes me happy to still have my original Gameboy Color with its games and my original N64 console with games. I still remember the day my dad took me to Walmart to pick up the N64 and picking out Donkey Kong with the red expansion pak that came with the game. I was 4 then and spent countless hours on those things.
