Why I pulled out the old Gameboy

Posted on May 14, 2016 at 10:00 pm

Oh, how I used to love my Gameboy. I’m not talking about the Gameboy Advanced or the Gameboy Colour, I’m talking about the original. I loved the simplicity of the green screen and the ‘A’ and ‘B’ buttons and so I pulled it out recently to have a bit of a play. It was just as fun as it used to be and I guess I can now consider myself a ‘retro gamer’. The sounds brought the memories of my childhood back, and I guess the only real downside is the fact that the screen was too dark. This used to bug me back in the day and it does even more now, especially as we’re used to brightly lit HD screens. I’ll always love my Gameboy and the one and only game I used to play; Super Mario Land.
