    I still do. I haven't touched it in what must be almost 10 years. [​IMG]
    I remember the ac connection was a bit faulty, other then that it still worked fine.

    Hell yeah, got shitloads of Gameboys and at least one of each of these:

    Gameboy
    Gameboy Pocket
    Gameboy Pocket with LED battery light.
    Gameboy: Play It Loud!
    Gameboy Color (got loads in different colours)


    I wish I could get a Game Boy Light to complete the collection, but they're always pricey.

    Two original grey ones (my first one, and one I picked up at the thrift store for five bucks) and a red one. Both still working just fine.

    I'm trying to get one for a while now, just for collection.
    My first one was Green GB Pocket, still have it, still works, no problems whatsoever!

    We just recently found my wife's ancient Gameboy. What a great moment that was. It even had Super Mario Land still inserted. We put in batteries and lo and behold, it worked.

    Now I need a flashcard for that thing, but they're ridiculously expensive.

    Wonderful times with it....

    My mum owned a Gameboy. The last time I saw it, it was working fine. The last time I saw it was about three years ago. =P

    I have one somewhere. The old see-through model. The black border around the screen is missing thanks to me throwing it at the wall as a kid when I sucked at Killer Instinct and kept losing all the time. I dunno where it is at the moment, probably in my loft somewhere in a box. I use my Cyclo to emulate old GB/GBC games these days since they're all but impossible to find.

    I have it and it works. I really don't use it anymore, though; the only games I played on it were Pokemon (and I lost my Silver cartridge, broke my Yellow cartridge, and only have my Crystal cartridge left).

    Still, the Gameboy is a great device. It was built so well that most of them work just as good today as they did when they rolled off the assembly line.

    I may one day have to start buying all the great Gameboy games I've missed out on. Emulation just doesn't cut it. Tetris, Oracle of Ages/Seasons, etc.

    Nope, never had one.

    I had a NES for years (it was here before I was and belonged to Dad). Next thing I got was a Pokemon G/S Edotion GameBoy Color.

    This I still have and it works fine.
