    Surprisingly, my first non-Tetris game that I got was NOT Super Mario Land. It was TMNT: Fall of the Foot Clan, which in hindsight wasn't that great, but I played the bajeezus out of it for a very long time. I also was very hooked on Operation C, although the Hunter gun made it way too easy. My favorite original Game Boy game is Donkey Kong '94. Sadly, by the time Pokemon came around, I was in high school and didn't care, but I've gotten into it thanks to the GBA games.

    I never got an NES or a SNES, but I did get a Game Boy Pocket, and now there's something particular about Game Boy music and sound effects that says "video games" to me more strongly than anything else.

    If it wasnt for Yokoi, portable gaming wouldnt have existed like it did today. The man is just as important as the bill gates / steve jobs back in the day

    No one has said this yet, so I will. R.I.P. Gunpei Yokoi. Your genius will never be forgotten.

    I love how in Pokemon Stadium and Pokemon Stadium 2, getting a certain criteria boosts the Gameboy tower into Doduo and Dodrio towers that literally doubles and quadruples the speed of the gameboy Pokemon Games.

    I still use my Game Boy storage case for all of my gaming stuff. Nowadays, it carries all of my GBC, GBA, and some DS games, along with my DSi and 3DS (I need a separate thing for the rest of my DS/3DS games).

    Wait wait wait, the code booklet that came with my Game Genie for Gameboy was STICKERS?! How did I not know that?!

    Remember when Perfect Dark (N64) was supposed to allow a player to put their face in the game with the transfer pak and the GB Camera? Then that thing happened and they pulled it citing "they couldn't get it to work right." I bought that camera for that reason alone; turned out it was more fun then I imagined.

    Don't forget about the battery life; the original Game Boy seemed to run forever with even the generic batteries that came with it. It could even occasionally squeeze a little juice out of batteries that other devices deemed "dead".

    I havent replaced the batteries in mine in 8 years and it still works like a charm, and its not like I dont use it or anything i play it fairly often
