Take it back to the late 80s with the Nintendo Game Boy. Adults and children love playing a variety of games on this system that can be taken almost anywhere. The hand-held Game Boy is perfect for playing in vehicles, on lunch breaks, or out in the backyard with friends. This system features a directional pad, as well as four operation buttons for in-game use. An external power supply jack allows users to plug the game into an AC power adapter. When users are away from a power source, the game runs on four AA batteries. A port lets players connect two Game Boys to one another, or the port can be used to connect the game to a Game Boy printer.
First-Ever Game Boy Worth the Purchase and Experience of Playing It
We still have our original game boy and several games that have been stored nicely in tiny plastic cases. Since it’s in bad shape, I wanted to get another one. Fortunately for us, they refurbish them. When it first premiered in the nineties, we had a great time playing with it. Compared to today, the graphics are old school on a black and white screen, but despite that, it’s no different than playing on a cellphone screen today except today’s is more colorful and defined. But playing them on a black and white makes it extra challenging. The sound is very good, and the games are still fun today and even more challenging than I’ve played on my cellphone. This year I gave my new refurbished one as a “fun” gift to my son and we’ve been playing Home Alone, Escape to New York, a game I finished and beat years ago. But now It is so hard, but still just as fun to play with. This original gameboy is a little and fun game system to play, and the games are worth it. Plus, there are so many different ones. Fortunately I kept all of them and they are still very playable. For example, we have the Home Alone-New York one, wheel of fortune game, Simpson’s, Nigel Mansell which is a car racing one, and kirby’s Dreamland to mention a few. If you are a fan of different game systems, I suggest you try this original game boy and enjoy the challenge of playing very fun but challenging games on it. It’s well worth it.Read full review
When I bought this, I thought the screen would work and just have some cosmetic issues from the era, like yellowing and stuff. You cannot see anything on screen, and has multiple layers of dead pixelation. Hoping we get this resolved
The Nintendo Gameboy was by no means an example of the most powerful handheld even during its prime in the early 90s. Its competitors had front-lit or back-lit screens and were in color. What the Gameboy did, however, was provide great games. It's still surprising to me that I can get so engaged in a game like Link's Awakening or Pokemon Red while playing them on a grey brick with a reflective screen that has 4 shades of green. The Gameboy is still fun to play in 2018, the age of backlights, pocket computers, and HD gaming with photo-realistic graphics.
The Gameboy looks amazing. I love it. It is a lot lighter than I expected. The contrast button is a little sensitive as well. I think that needed to be adjusted a little. Also, the d-pad is a little loose, It translates within the cutout for it. I think I am just spoiled though. Other than that, the sound quality is as good as I remember. The whole system was cleaned very thoroughly. It looks like it came fresh out of the box. Overall it is really good. I am happy with my purchase. I may come back after a year.
This is the original, portable, game console, that in some ways is great granddaddy to the present day smartphone. The display is rudimentary and crude by today’s standards, yet somehow it’s still fun to play. The player is well made, sturdy, with nice controls. For under $75 you can own a piece of history, hone your reflexes, and don’t forget, enjoy the Tetris music forevermore!
