The original Gameboy!!! What games really smashed it for you?



I was just browsing some video's from the Gameboy on Youtube as I saw some suggestions at the side and ended up watching a few. Of course the Gameboy was huge when it was released and even though the Gameboy colour came after, I'm not sure it quite reached the success of the original Gameboy?

Either way, I thought it would be cool to see what you guys thought to the original Gameboy and the games that it had? They may not have been fantastic graphic wise and may not have been been in colour, but they did seem to be quality games so what are your thoughts in regards to this.



Super Mario Land is one of those games that you could play over and over again, of course there was the original Tetris on there and even some cool WWF games I believe. So what are your thoughts?

Memories and great games of the original Gameboy? I would love to hear



Don't worry Heff, we can still have a nice Thanksgiving. I bought us a nice big vegetarian turkey. It'll be delicious!

Even as a child, something just felt off about this game. I kept thinking it was an imitation Mario game.

Re: The original Gameboy!!! What games really smashed it for you?

Honestly only played 2 things on my gameboy & it was the gameboy colour

Pokemon Yellow & Blue

Yellow was more of a challenge to begin with as Pikachu is basically ineffective against Brock so I had to grind for a Butterfree to even stand a chance

The Pokémon franchise was the shit. Super Mario Bros was awesome as well! The Wario series were cool too.

A mate of mine was mad on Pokemon. I've heard these games are so good. Never played them, but heard a lot about them

Ha. Tetris was cool. Did you manage to complete it? It did have a final level didn't it?

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.

It's never too late! You can even play them on Simulators on your PC or Smartphone by now. Sure, Pokémon was
a succes in general butit was the games that got me hooked. The RPG feel was so amazing.
