Let’s all celebrate the 25th anniversary of Nintendo’s spinach-screened handheld that gave us a new found appreciation for light sources, helped us make new friends by linking up Pokemon Red, and eventually Pokevolved in to the giant we know now as the 3DS.
I remember the day I received the original Game Boy, struggling to catch the perfect ray of light so I could actually figure out what in the hell to do with Tetris. In retrospect I could go back and slap myself for not figuring out how to make lines out of block shapes, but it’s still a fond memory in a masochistic sort of way. It’s also a reminder that I’m 32 years old. Thanks Nintendo.
