I remember someone from school having a Gameboy really early on. On a school trip to London we all huddled round to watch him play Tetris (we had an inferior version on our PC) and Alleyway. It took years to get one for myself. Then it got thieved. I think.
With all of the countless free mobile games available on your smartphone and the dozens of new releases on PC every week and the huge triple-A releases on home consoles month after month, it can be debilitating to simply sit down and pick a game to play.
Do you remember which ones you had? Before phone companies wanted you to buy a new product every year, Nintendo pioneered the concept of redesign after redesign without actually adding to the product until further iterations. Personally I had the OG grey, Lime green Gameboy Color, See-through purple Gameboy Advance, Red Gameboy SP. Glad They did not have the DS on this list.
