If Game Boy was the only console around

Gaming technology has come on so far in the short thirty years since Space Invaders and Pac-Man. But what if it hadn't? What if, say, Nintendo's first black and green-screened Game Boy was the only console that had ever existed?

A terrifying thought, indeed. But we reckon our favourite games would probably look something like this:




FIFA World Cup 2010: South Africa


Modern Warfare 2


F1 2010


God of War


They actually look fun. Bring back the Game Boy, we say!

  • thaaman20 - April 16, 2010 10:10 p.m.

    That would be fun!

    They actually look like shit more like...sorry, I'm just so glad we've moved on from the dreaded green and black screen.

    I love this article Justin, top marks, would love to see the same done with other popular systems. I challenge you to do one for the Commodore C64 next. Do you accept?

    Do more please, and do them soon. Do FFXIII and Mario Galaxy and Gran Turismo. Now I say!

    That GOW one looks like a early mobile phone version of the game

    Bayonetta one made me lol for no apparent reason. No Arkham Asylum though? Extended feature, we chorus!

    THis article was awsome. I was just thinking about that recaptcha: Mr. Timbuktu ?
  • sveini22 - April 9, 2010 7:54 p.m.

    what about halo ?

    @OnyxOblivion Shh. You realy don't wanna get on her bad side.
  • Revanjd - April 9, 2010 7:17 p.m.

    I'd still play them! Dang, those Game Boy days sure feel like a long time ago...
  • OnyxOblivion - April 9, 2010 6:51 p.m.

    @JuliePeesgood Indeed. You misspelled your name, Ms. Peasgood.
  • CH3BURASHKA - April 9, 2010 6:49 p.m.

    I would play me some of these. The Bayonetta one did not work out quite as well, IMO. I'd like to see a Shadow of the Colossus in 2D.

    SOmething like a retro-revival would surely excite anyone who was on Gunpei Yokoi's original development team.
  • VictorRay - April 9, 2010 5:27 p.m.

    agreed with Jackburnt. I think the GoW game looks pretty awesome
  • jakery22 - April 9, 2010 5:09 p.m.

    Some of these actually look quite good. I ever only got to use the original gameboy for about a month. :(. The gameboy advance came out and i got one of those. I did love super mario on the gameboy though. It's what really got me into gaming. Even though i could only get up to 1-2. :P.

    Okami is racist and sexist. Racist, I say!
