Random fact: Link is shown in this video. But it's not the one from Zelda. It's the one from Encino Man.

Knew all of this already. You never mentioned the Gameboy was used in hospitals by Doctors as an ECG measurement instrument or that several Gameboy games had been made specifically for the SNES Gameboy player with changing color palettes and improved graphics while being used on that system.

In late 90s I was on a family vacation. My parents would kick my ass if I didn’t lend my GB to my little sister. I was on beach swimming when I realized I had put my Pokémon blue in my pocket so my sister wouldn’t “accidentally” erase my file... i dried it for a few days and was running perfect again. Same file and everything!!! The good old days.

Coolest add-on for the SP I had was this clip-on magnifying glass that folded up and over the screen. Sure it didn't get to be the size of a DS but it was a lot better than the original screen size.

Fact #0: Starting with the GameBoy Advance?Color?, you could technically play all your original GameBoy games in glorious color via different color palates via the Control Pad + A/B. [L/R/Start/Slect?] Edit: i think i found that out on the Gameboy Color playing Kirby Pinball Land.

HAH trying to undertake creating a games console in this day and age would be massively futile compared to the simplicity of it when that guy created the game boy back in the day; way more competition with the brands that are cornerstones i nthe vid game world, and the money it takes to have such gaming sophistication. BUt hey, if a kid can make anything, even something that is basic and plays whatever, I am all for the ingenuity of it. Will they become rich though? Unlikely * shrugs * Still, reach for the stars kids roflolmfao

I do know this little fun fact about the Gameboy games Super Mario Land 1 and Super Mario land 2, in Super Mario Land 2 if you have the bunny ears and go to the level with the hippo statues that blow bubbles (the gateway level to the Space Zone) if you fly with the bunny ears and pause it in mid sound effect then drop to the ground without making the flying sound effect again you can slightly alter how the music sounds the same holds true in level one in the Macro Zone if you get an item or a power up if pause the game in mid sound effect then that will also alter how the music sounds and in Super Mario Land 1 of you break a brick and pause it in mid sound effect it will take away the beat drum symbol sound in the music the fireball sound and the kuppa bomb sound and that sound when you kill some bad guys that stay on the screen for a few seconds and then make that sound as they clear off the screen all those sound effects pause them in mid sound effect will take away the drum symbol sound in Super Mario Land 1 but if you do that and and you make one of those sound effects happen again without pausing then the drum beat symbol sound will come back in Super Mario Land 1

I can't believe the game boy ran at 60 fps wow
Gooch359 (1 year ago)
I remember being able to change the gameboy colour background colour using different button combinations on the start up screen. Discovered it when I accidentally changed it to yellow and freaked out because I thought I broke the contrast or somthing. its a little thing but it was fun to do at the time.
I still own my original Game Boy from when I was a kid, also still fun to pick up old games for it from flea markets, thrift stores, mom and pop shops & garage sales or from your buddy's mom who is getting rid of her kids stuff

I still have a GameBoy Advance SP from its initial launch in the states. It still has a full battery life of about 8 hours and has survived being thrown out of a moving car at 35mph, going out of a 2nd story window, and punching a hole in a wall with barely a scratch. They don't make 'em like they used to. I was just playing Pokemon Emerald on it a couple weeks ago.

The original Game Boy started the handheld console revolution. You can Thank Gunpei Yokoi for that.

2:13 "Nintendo didn't stop making GameBoys until 2003. It's nice to know companies don't leave their console dead in the water." Yet, Nintendo stops all wifi servers on wii and even recently recalled Wii u!
DayZo (1 year ago)
vortex I think they did that to save their money, because the wii u failed (sadly). At that time, that has not really been a big deal I suppose.

The only thing I know about the Game Boy Advance SP is that I had about 40 hours put into Pokèmon Crystal then the GBA deleted my progress... :,(

I had a great third party light thing for the gameboy. it fit over the back and top firmly, didn't obscure any buttons or disrupt handling. It had a flip down screen that had lights and was a magnifier too! Its one of the best third party devices ive ever bought for any system ever.
