Kicking It Old School: Nintendo Game Boy

Now that product launch season is finally almost over, we've decided to take a look at some of our favourite old gadgets. I'll be aiming to post one of these once a day for a week or so, but I'm going to start with the very first piece of tech that I owned: the Game Boy

The original Game Boy is responsible for my love affair with gadgets. I got my very first Game Boy in 1994 alongside Super Mario Land 2 and Tetris. It was huge. It was chunky. It came in a horrible shade of green. But it was amazing. I was only about five, so I wasn’t very good at most games yet, but it meant that anyone game could last me years. I don't actually think I finished Super Mario Land 2 until 1997.
