    That one girl that understood what it was right off the bat. I like her.

    Other than that, I really dislike Kids React To.

    the guy talking to the kids lied to them, there were rechargeable batteries back then, or maybe he was to young to remember that.

    The PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube are older than some kids are. Nothing's better than being on reddit and seeing DAE REMEMBER SPONGEBOB

    People still watch this stuff? Even after they put ads on the bullying suicide and school shooting videos?

    Some reactions are too good to be true (the kids or their honeybooboo parents are obviously aware of what makes the show tick) and the whole routine is getting old anyway.

    Kids shows for adults on TV are generally despised by (serious) television critics as they're considered a cheap display of kids' cuteness for the sake of it.

    Not sure why on youtube that would be any different. It's not like cheap shots at cuteness or funnyness are the norm in the top channels on yout.......oh. I see.

    At least some actual discussion can come out of the teens and elders react episodes. But this, it's just "awwwww they don't know what's a floppy disk how cute". We get it. Time to move on, 2013 is over, nobody remembers Psy and nobody wants to see a kid pretending to expect to download apps on a 25 years old plastic toy.

    That's exactly the reaction they want you to have.

    It's just the editing of the video and the kids playing along.

    To be honest, I was kind of relieved most of them actually knew of the thing. The device was pretty much discontinued (at least in it's original form) pretty much since they were born, so is it any wonder they're comparing it to smartphones?


    The video also clearly trends towards sensationalism. I never saw that magnifying glass out in public, but they almost made it look as if it was a necessary option.

    These videos are a cancer.

    The only tragedy here is that the Gameboy had to be affected, and there's no amount of chemo that can save it now.

    Temptation to kill is rising.
    Also why expect them to know about this shit? People who grew up with the SNES probably wouldn't know/care about the magnavox odyssey, this is pretty much the same as that.
    These kids were born 2004+ and the Gameboy was released 1989, 15 years before they were born.

    Predictable, yet still somewhat entertaining. Glad at least some know it to some degree...
    It's a classic man, a starting point and they at least should know it existed

    I find these videos to be really lack luster in that they fail to represent actual kid reactions as I have seen them in real life.

    I watched one where they put kids on an old Apple II e and the video was boring as hell. Also they bring up some rather "topical/trendy" issues which kids ALL know about now a days and do not find shocking, just as I didn't find them shocking when I was young and they were not main stream topics, I just thought they were odd and went on about my life.

    Anyhow, these videos could be better, more entertaining, and more honest. Maybe the kids they select for these videos were just raised in a box or something, I dunno.
