5.0 out of 5 stars Forget Droid and iOS, Gameboy is still the best October 10, 2012

Siri and her friends can go into the junkpile for all I care, Gameboy is still the best handheld around. Yeah, the screen only displays in shades of green and the sound is composed of beeps and squeaks, but Gameboy is still awesome. It is built like a rock and won't crack if it falls to the floor (unlike some phone I know...). The games on it are many and varied, yet one word would describe them all. Addicting. Who wouldn't be up to the huge task of collecting 150 Pokemon? Who wouldn't want to help Mario save his castle from a comical fat guy? Who doesn't like arranging falling blocks and getting the high score? Pure fun that the stupid birds in slingshots will never get close to. Gameboy may not be cutting edge anymore, but I have not seen a better handheld in a LONG time!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I ordered this for my mom who is recovering from surgery. When she had a surgery 10 years ago, my Game Boy was her favorite immobile pastime. My old one broke and I am so glad I was able to fine this one -- she loves it! It has kept her entertained while she can't move around.

The item arrived very quickly, in the exact condition described, working just right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic April 1, 2011
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Compared to the fancy-schmacy PSPs, GBA, and Nintendo DS handhelds today, this game is indeed a dinosaur, its monitor small in size compared to the size of the whole unit itself, the monitor being a weird green color and limited graphics, and needing four AA batteries at once.

Yet all of these fancy new handheld platforms would not have existed with this beauty. It was nice in its simplicity - games had to define themselves through gameplay rather than graphics. I still have my cherry-red Game Boy, though I haven't touched it in ages and it's in its case packed away in my chest. Ahh, memories...

Sure, the new handhelds boast a lot more capability, but you can't go wrong with Classic Game Boy!

It's an "ancient", "useless" or "junk" system to many young gamers. You really do need to have played with this when it was "new". Lots of people sell these for only $1 at garage sales with lots of scratches, small cuts/dents to the plastic and without a battery cover (I never had my cover anyways). These are able to bring back SOOOO many memories and remembering hundreds of hours of gaming.
You CAN buy 2 or 3 of the games from it online at the 3DS EShop for under $10.00 but it's only available on the 3DS. They usually have full color but then it's more for the younger gamers.
People are selling these for over $300.00 and it's ABSURD!!! You shouldn't pay that much for a Gameboy (probably not working), a small accessory and 3 old "generic" games that don't work for long.\
If you're paying over $50.00 for one of these, you better be getting it IN THE BOX and possibly unopened!!!
Gamestop won't buy/sell/trade these due to their age but the garage sales, thrift shops and "small" gaming shops will sell these with the battery cover for <<NORMALLY>> $25.00 or less that works but without any accessories.
Though this sounds like a joke, this was the invention that made bathroom trips take A LOT longer at schools!
The little information packets that are in black and white and look like a small booklet or opens up like a road-map can, literally, be found with any Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advance (SP) or their games. Those aren't really worth paying extra for it. I'm about 90% sure that you shouldn't even bother to pay extra for that. Just take it if you are asked if you want it. Just because! :)

My first gaming device, I've always appreciated the quality Nintendo put into it's products, even before my time. The Gameboy is the perfect combo of retro-ness and modern entertainment

5.0 out of 5 stars Best handheld ever made! November 3, 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have three. One for the car, one in my camping bag, one on the coffee table. I bought one in 1989 and in 1998 it was stolen! Over the years I've acquired three more. The game library is tremendous so there are plenty of games to buy cheaply to enjoy. A few games I still play regularly--Donkey Kong Land, 1,2 and 3...Nintendo World Cup Soccer, Tetris, Super Mario Land, Tennis, Kirby Block Ball, Double Dragon, Ducktales 2, Pokémon Red, Pokémon Trading Card Game. But there are hundreds...maybe thousands to choose from so you will always be able to find ones you like. Have you ever tried to play a newer system outside in the sunlight? Very difficult to see the screen but NOT with this bad boy. You can play it very easily in extreme sun light. When people visit they always snatch it off my coffee table to play and they tell stories about certain games they had for theirs...very nostalgic and puts a smile on people's faces really fast! It isn't region locked so you can play awesome Japanese import games on it as well. I have 20 import games I really enjoy, too. It's still VERY playable and enjoyable even if the technology is rudimentary. Most people who had it when it came out, really have a deep love for this awesome system...there's just something special about how it feels in your hands and how well it works even with just TWO buttons. They're cheap and durable....if you have a friend who loves video games, for less than the price of one new game you can get this system and several games for them as an awesome gift. Recommended especially for Generation X and older. Guess what else? You really CAN use rechargeable batteries. Read more ›

This unit is a little different but still enough the same to be familiar, as far as operation is concerned. The grandkids will be able to use it right away!
