Game Boy Color Setup

Today while I was searching for my comfortable toe socks, I stumbled upon my old Game Boy Color and accessories.



I forgot how much of a nerd I was in middle school carrying this monstrosity around.  But I loved my Handy Pak that went with it because it magnified and lit up the screen while providing stereo sound and a joy stick.  The most important feature was the light.  The light saved me from the pains of boredom during long car rides in the dark.



I was the pimp mama of Game Boys back in the day.  My guy friends were super-jealous until they copied me and bought one themselves.  I have many fond memories riding between school and home playing on this thing.  I was also cool enough to have the rechargeable battery pack (purple, of course).

  19. Im now going to start playing Pokemon yellow again. If i had gold, silver, or crystal i would prefer those, but the oldies are still good.

    I still like the old games the best, xbox and ps3 can't compete with oldies.

  32. I had the exact same thing for my kiwi Game Boy. I would pretend it was a Transformer when I would unfold it. The buttons and the joystick on that thing really sucked though. They always got stuck.
