Nintendo GAME BOY / GBC BUYING GUIDE + Great Games!...
No fucking idea why it's a 34 minute video, allow me to offer an abridged version in less than 2 seconds of reading time:
ANY GAMEBOY AND TETRIS, YOU'RE DONE! :olol:

THIRTY FOUR FUCKING MINUTES?!?!?!?!?! WHAT IN THE ACTUAL FUCK?!?!
If I really wanted to stretch out my 2 second summary, I would add: And get kirbys dreamland if you want an OK game with an awesome soundtrack! :o
For some reason they call it Dry July. Because it rhymes.
We should call it what it is.

I just listed all 3 "GOOD*" GB games...

if you want to get into "playable" then we could go on for ages...
*Good is a game that you could play endlessly because there wasn't a BETTER version on any home console.

I can't believe I forgot Wave Race!!! THAT WAS AWESOME, and the ONLY reason to ever use the link cable on the original gameboy!! And then Wave race was OK on the 64 and AWESOME on the cube!!
And 6 golden coins was good as well...

But the rest of your list was invalidated by pokemon.. I hate to say it, But EVERYONE played those games cause of peer pressure.. they simple weren't good games.. NEVER WERE.

You didn't play pokemon for fun.. You played pokemon to one up your friends, you played it for a sense of achievement, and you played it for something to talk about.. you didn't play it because it was any good :olol:

As with the DS, if you can't find anything you like for the GameBoy, it's time to quit gaming.

Yep, there are lots of good games on all of Nintendo's handhelds.

And the Pokemon games are very good! Especially the earlier ones.

Absolutely, GB, GBA, DS and 3DS all have amazing libraries. I dread to think how much time i've spent on GB Golf alone... I don't even like Golf :oshocked:

I remember seeing the Mega CD when it came out, nothing looked that great on it, especially when it was priced at AU$700. It did end up getting some decent games eventually but for the most part nothing that you couldn't get on other systems.
