    I was roaming around here in our town when i saw a boy playing with the Original Gameboy,

    yes the fat one with four batteries! I looked dazed and slightly happy! i didnot know that baby is still alive!

    Just looking at it brought me back to childhood when i did not have one [​IMG]

    Because it cost way too much here ten years ago! Roughly $899

    Does anyone else play with their original Gameboy?

    I still have the one I bought from the BX, when I was stationed in Germany, in 1990 ... and it still works perfectly.

    I still occasionally give my GBC a whirl (lime green one I somehow grabbed from an air force base in New Mexico) and I am fairly sure there is one of those 4 battery behemoths around here somewhere but I can not say I ever play it.

    I have one. The gray border around the screen fell off, start button barely works, and it almost never turns on, and when it does, only for a few seconds. [​IMG]

    Uff, mine first was Green pocket, and Pokemon Red.....
    Many many hours wasted on it..
    I've just played Mole Mania on it few days ago..It's a great feeling, and it is best to play GameBoy games on Gameboy/Pocket, Color games on GameBoy Color and Advance on GBA..
    I mean, if you don't have a console, emulator will do, but there's no emulation like the real thing..
