To think something so much older than me was still such a vital part of my childhood.
Owned a Pocket and the Colour. Possibly the only console to sell to so many people just to play one game, Pokemon =D

Congrats, awesome system.

Have (have, not had) the 'clear' version of the classic GameBoy, a yellow GameBoy Pocket and a purple transparant GameBoy Color. All still in prestine working condition of course, I take care of my things. I have a fairly big library for it still, and there's many awesome games to be found. Most notably Zelda: Link's Awakening, which is better than 99 out of a 100 console games. It shouldn't have been able to exist on a handheld, but it did. The color version is that much sweeter.



I had the original and later I got a clear one. Both never died and I assume are traveling the world as we speak, going from town to town and fighting crimes.

I had:
-Tetris
-Super Mario Land
-Cosmo Tank
-Mercenary Force
-Ninja Gaiden Shadow
-Metroid II: The Return of Samus
-Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins (last game I ever bought)
-Gargoyle's Quest (My favorite GB game, ever!)
-Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Fall of the Foot Clan
-Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtels II: Back From the Sewers
-Battletoads
-Fortified Zone
-Metal Gear
-Quix

And I'm sure I'm forgetting something. Loved it so much. Carried my games around in a special shoebox. Had the magnifier and screen lighting peripherals. I loved it. Lots of good memories with that one.

It sure had a lot of accesories for it.

Does anyone know of someone who had the camera and printer? I've never met anyone who had them, or at least that confessed to own them. It looked such a pointless accesory, a real gimmick... and take a look around, everybody uses their phones to take pictures. Nintendo was ahead of its time again!



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

Belated congrats! Game Boy Color was my first handheld game system ever :) I had only Pokemon Blue for it though.

Actually the Gameboy achieved that twice. 

First with Tetris, and then again when Pokemon came out.
