Happy 30th Birthday, GameBoy!

Recommended Posts

Since it is now April 21st in Japan (see, proof the Earth isn't flat. fight me!), that means the GameBoy is now 30 years old.

It's been a long, fun ride for those of us that kept our GameBoys and games. Speaking of...

Here's hoping Nintendo gets around to releasing a GameBoy Classic console, in the vein of the NES and SNES Classics.

a gameboy with all games ever released on GB would be such an epic item. it's going to be done once the copyrights don't interest anyone anymore...sometime in 20XX.

That's called an "Everdrive and a 4GB miniSD card". C'mon, Nase, no company on Earth would release such a thing officially. It'd be impossible.

I've been looking into one of those, but holy fuck, the good carts are really expensive, and the cheaper carts are not recommended.

i paid around the same for a device to write on and load from cartridge 10 years ago, just to have backups in case my little sound dj cart failed...it connected via this huge pin connector the old printers used. and it was sloooow.

$130 is not thaat much for such a niche product.

$130 US is like, $170 CAN these days. That's a bit above my budget for games.

But any way. GameBoy. 30 years.

ok. i had a gameboy when i was 5 or 6, with just 2 games, tmnt 2 and dr. mario. i played and won the hardest level in dr. mario really early. i never beat the final boss in turtles.

a friend of mine had megaman, which struck me as a particularily hard core game. don't think i finished a single stage, but then again i never had it for myself. i remember liking the music.

when i was 11, i got a pocket game boy i pretty much exclusively played link's awakening on, often in school during breaks.

thinking about it, i always got every console and very little games. my dad always liked gadgets, so he ended up buying them with me in mind, but he wasn't interested in getting me a lot of games. i had enough to play so i didn't complain. 2 game boys, 1 game gear, a mega drive, an old 386 with commander keen 1-6 among others, and finally my cherished snes.
