5.0 out of 5 stars my gameboy original 26 April 2013
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
since i am a collector of consoles, i was really excited to get one of these but never got the chance too due to me thinking that the price for those were a bit high..one day a friend of mine said that he is selling his so with no hesitation i said to him that i will buy it - and i am glad i did. the console is awesome! although i only had a gameboy colour in my hands when i was a kid, my opinion is that this one is so much better. this is because..the screen is bigger! not by much, but i can tell the difference. it is also thicker thatn the colour one, but i am not that bothered about that, and quickly didn't notice the difference. the other thing that i love this console is the fact that you can adjust the brightnes - something the colour lacks for some reason. no idea why. although in the dark you will still find it impossible to play but it is much an improvement for me during the day - especially when the sun is out. also games are quite fun and addictive e.g. Tetris. all in all an excellent pocket gameboy that i will most likely cherish and look after it as it is truly awesome!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have very fond memories of Nintendo's original Game Boy: the catchy Russian music playing while I fiddle around with the blocks in Tetris; collecting coins and jumping on enemies in Super Mario Land with Mario's legs seemingly spinning around like a bicycle wheel whilst he was running; hitting balls around in Golf, where the ball travelling through the air was accompanied by a high-pitched noise, like Katherine Jenkins trying to break glass with her singing voice; and the endless number of trainer and gym leader battles in the Pokémon games. It was tough work playing the Game Boy. But hey, someone had to do it.

The handheld was designed with the screen at the top and the power switch just on top of that. Underneath the screen was the D-pad, the A and B buttons, and the Start and Select buttons. I've heard some people say that this setup actually made the Game Boy difficult to handle with the player's hands positioned so close to each other and causing cramp. But I never had this problem. It was just as comfortable to hold as the Game Boy Advance (where the screen was in the middle with the buttons positioned either side).

There were dials either side of the handheld; one for the volume and one to adjust screen brightness to your liking. There was a plug slot on the side that allowed 2 GBs to be connected via a link cable, and this meant 2-Player fun as well as a little bit of socializing. And there was a slot to plug in some headphones if you wanted to.

And of course, there were the games.
