Ahh the memories that this little “portable” device conjures up. It’s funny that even though this is considered a portable game system, it really wasn’t so portable. It was huge when I was a kid and even today (with my somewhat larger hands) I think it’s huge.
It even took 4 AA batteries to operate. That’s just crazy. I never really ported this around so much as play it at home in my bedroom. My favorites of this old school system were Metroid II: Return of Samus, Golf, Super Mario Land and of course Tetris. If you owned a Gameboy, it was almost certain that you had Tetris as well.
Twas a great system in its day and I’m quite pleased that it has spawned so many new versions. Even with all of the competition (Atari Lynx and Sega Game Gear) it came out on top considering it was somewhat inferior to the other two. Congrats to Nintendo and to the little system that could.. The Gameboy.
