Excerpt: I still could remember playing this particular console like it was yesterday. It was all the rage during the 1990s! It is quite light, very easy to use, and cute buttons to irresistibly tap on. In my opinion, as it is already in 2010s, the Nintendo Gameboy is nothing but an "ancient treasure". Right now, the console that every kid should have is either Xbox or PS. However, owning a Nintendo Gameboy has its pros.
Pros: "Collectible", easy to use, quite light, portable, cute
Excerpt: If you, like me still enjoy playing on the gamecube and have a lot of gameboy games to play, this device is perfect. The Nintendo Gameboy Player offers what Super Gameboy did for Snes: they allow you to play your small gameboy games and play them on the big screen. The gameboy player for gamecube is slotted underneath the gamecube and the games are inserted as you would on a regular game.
Excerpt: The original Nintendo Game Boy is over twenty years old. My copy of gameboy used to belong to my aunt until he stopped playing on it and assumed it was broken and went to the more advanced consoles. For many years after the console's prime time was over it was used as a piece of decoration. It laid on the cabinet like a trophy gathering dust. When I was a teenager I wanted to have a go on it, but my aunt said not to bother cause it didn't work.
Pros: Really inspired a generation of game consoles .
Cons: Not really desired anymore and I lost the back of it .
Excerpt: Loving my old Game Boy! Got it from my brother when I was little and it is still working despite its old age. I had to clean it every once in a while because it was full of dust but screwing it open is fairly easy even for a technical non-skilled woman like me. In the original pack I remember it came with the game Tetris, and a couple of friends of mine had a cable to connect two game boys or even a lens with light so you were able to play at night.
Pros: long lasting, easy
Cons: is not sold anymore in stores, gets harder to buy replacements
Excerpt: The Game boy is the best-selling hand-held of all time. It was launched in the US and Japan in 1989 and in Europe in 1990. It has an LCD screen with a very simple controller of A, B, select, start and a direction pad. The unit operated on four AA batteries or a battery pack which was sold separately. The games are comprised of small cartridges. The Game boy had a huge library of games.
Excerpt: Compared to newer models, it's bulkier, and four AA batteries make it heavier! Only capable of displaying four colours, strong battery life (at least ten hours) was a reason for holding off the competition. That's not to suggest the monochrome palette limited the quality; the Game Boy had plenty of good games, and in Tetris was a killer app. An advantage of playing some close NES ports would be smoother scrolling.
Excerpt: My brother had a gameboy but got a gameboy colour for his birthday, i was given his gameboy the next month for my bithday, i got one game with it and that was the only original gameboy game i own to date. At the time it was a great console what with its non-colour screen not very good mono speaker.

Once the Game Boy Player is connected to the underside of the Game Cube, all you do is place the Game Boy Player boot disk into the GameCube and insert the Game Boy (Advance or previous) game cartridge into the slot on the front of the Game Boy Player and power up the GameCube.

Excerpt: I was 16 when I had a Gameboy given to me for joining a bank and opening an account, it cost nothing for the Gameboy, but £14.99 to open the bank account (Halifax). I found that was a good way of getting it as I had wanted one for ages, but my parents wouldn't get me one. So I jumped at the opportunity.
