Re: The original Gameboy!!! What games really smashed it for you?
Man that was something, wasn't it? I remember when my dad brought home the first Gameboy. I remember it because he had got it for my brother and I was SO FUCKING PISSED. I don't know why he bought but he did. I must've thrown the biggest temper tantrum ever because a couple weeks later I got my own and everything was right in the world.
The games I remember having are Super Mario Land, Tetris, WWF Superstars, Nintendo Baseball, Nintendo World Cup (English & German teams were damn near impossible to beat). My brother and I played Superstars a lot and I remember there being a glitch with the that if you tried to throw them outside the ring close to one of the turnbuckles on the screen where you could go outside, the opponent would scroll on the screen endlessly until they were attacked. Oh, and that theme song in Super Mario Land in World 4 I always thought would make an awesome song for a ninja or Asian inspired wrestler for a created wrestler in one of these WWE games.
I loved my original Gameboy, I just wish I knew the value of such things and took better care of it. Even years later when my dad got me a Sega Game Gear (which I hardly every played because batteries lasted like two hours) and bought myself a GameBoy Color later on, still doesn't match the original Gameboy in my opinion. Plus there were so many attachments you could get for the original Gameboy back in the day it was so ridiculous.
