My brother had a GameBoy when we were growing up, this was one of my favourite games on it:

Great Gameboy Games - Motocross Maniacs

I have Motocross Maniacs 2 for the GBC. Made by Konami. I really enjoy it.

I did have it and recently picked up a copy, as before i really aren't a fan, i found the physics aren't anything to write home about and the graphics too. May have missed something

These were both great games on the GameBoy, far better than many of the other home versions!

It's ironic that the GameBoy got a port of Double Dragon that was better than the port for the NES!

It is easy to see why the GameBoy was a success. Being able to play hit games on the go with excellent battery life.

I remember seeing this printer accessory for the GameBoy advertised.  Did anyone get it?  How about the camera?

Good friend of mine who knew i A)Loved Retro and B)Did'nt have a GB...bought me a GB that had the Camera+Printer with it.

The GB i've used all of 4 times (to try and play Alien III and T2) but cannot get a good enough picture (that LCD screen is an abomination) and the camera+printer, never even tried.

Well, it seems that it is just for fun.  Clearly the guy making the video had some making the demonstration.  :)

I know its technically not an original gameboy but I now have a gameboy colour, I have Tetris, the first two Mario Worlds and a couple other good games which I'm liking, I just don't think I could honestly ever enjoy playing the original green screen one personally. I did play it when I was younger and I always ended up going back to my Game Gear, that's just me, but the Colour is pretty nice and the batteries just REFUSE to die lol

Another GameBoy game that I thought was excellent is Dragon's Lair. It actually bares little resemblance to any other game in the series and this is because it is actually a conversion of the Spectrum platformer Roller Coaster. Elite simply changed some of the graphics but otherwise the game is the same. It's quite hard but worth persevering with and some of the graphics are superb.
