The Nintendo Game Boy Discussion Thread
« on: September 22, 2013, 03:53:46 AM »
I think it's time to start a thread on yet another portable system, the original Nintendo Game Boy.  To get things started, I'm posting this review from Classic Game Room of the system...

I have never played on an original GameBoy, likewise never played Tetris either.

Nice video :113: Except for the missing headphones. That is a bummer.

Nope, not on any format. I have several versions for the original Nintendo and N64. Never played any of them. I prefer Columns on the Sega Genesis.

You should give Tetris a try.  It is a fun game.

I will add it to my bucket list.

I like Jeopardy and Mole Mania on the GameBoy.

There clearly must have been other GameBoy titles that appealed to people.  Here is a video looking at 20 titles that "defined" the system...

Indeed. My comment was intended as a bit of light-hearted banter.

Looks like Metroid II is an original GameBoy game:

Funny how the rider just stands up and picks up the bike again when he falls.  That's a nice touch.  :)

Looks really good for an early title.
