Gameboys are back

I saw a few comments floating around in a popular games forum the other day about bringing out the Gameboy from the loft or basement, and the thread has really picked up over the last week or so. It’s basically shown me just how many people hang on to their retro consoles, and it made me go and fetch mine from the attic. I was scared my Gameboy Colour wouldn’t work but the light came on just fine and Super Mario was nicely lit in red and blue. I started playing Super Mario Land 2 as it’s the only game I could find and I haven’t been able to stop playing it since. Me and my girlfriend keep taking it in turns like we did 8 or 9 years ago, and it almost feels like we’ve gone back in time.  If your Gameboy is just gathering dust, get it out and give it a play, even if it’s for 30 minutes. You won’t regret it.
