Retro Tech: Game Boy

  • Publicado em 19 Abr 2019
  • The Game Boy is the most popular handheld gaming console ever. It allowed us to take games like Tetris, Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda with us on-the-go, changing the gaming industry and our free time forever. On the 30th anniversary of its release, Marques Brownlee unboxes and explores how the Game Boy came to be, it's impact on society, and why it's leaving us feeling so nostalgic.

    Everytime I see Gameboy, I got dopamine in my brain. That's why I have Gameboy case for phone. བོད་རྒྱལ་ལོ།

    I remember playing that exact game boy at game shops with my friends where we would play pokemon battles and trade for hours. If not battles then we would just grab snacks and drinks and chill there just talking about the pokemon teams we were building. God the game boy stole a piece of my heart when my grandpa gave it to me for my birthday. I still keep my game boy in good condition and every so often I will grab an old mario game and pop it in and play it. I have a chargable battery pack for it so I dont have to deal with batteries :)

    Hey, Marques AKA Dush Bag, Samsung Just released a New Laptop Called the "Samsung Galaxy S" it uses a Qualcom processor. Go review it so we can see if the processor can actually carry heavy loads like really help somebody work. Looks super good but the fear that it's gonna be one of those computers that can't do nothing.

    What do you say? Eh.

    You have to do one on the original Walkman. I can't help but think that it started the popular idea of having something portable in your pocket to take with you.
    Also, That style man. So iconic we still use it to define "retro".

    Nintendo game and watches were fantastic and in the 80's there was plenty to do. But what the kids didn't do is sit in front of a screen during all there waking hours and mindlessly use social media. Kids interacted with each other without hiding behind over hyped devices, they played with toys, yes real toys rather than starring at screens, Society was much, much less shallow and it was more fun. People today who think that life couldn't go on without Facebook, instagram and all the other mindless social media need a serious reality check.
