    Default How many Game Boys do you own?

    I have three.

    - Game Boy Pocket (black)
    - Game Boy Advance SP (graphite/black?)
    - Game Boy Advance SP AGS-101 (blue pearl)

    I'd like to get a teal GBC, a gray DMG, and a transcluscent purple GBA since those are the ones I had growing up. Would also like to get a Micro. My friend let me borrow his Famicom multicart that I would play on that.

    Glacier blue GBA
    A modded orange original GBA (took a screen out of a beat up GBA Advanced 001-it looks OK)
    Pearl blue(?) GBA AGS 101

    Like you I’d like to get the original for fun’s sake but not sure it’d see any play.

    I've owned a bunch over the years, I've wheeled and dealed them away as I pare down my collection as I got older....so none now.

    1992-1997 - "Gray Brick" - I painted it red when the Play it Loud series came out and ran it into the ground hardcore with all the Mario games I had
    1997-2003 - "Ice Blue Limited Edition (with box) - An ex griflriend stole this from me, I'm STILL pissed about it, that was my favorite version
    2006-2020 - "Gray Brick #2" - I bought this at Goodwill in TERRIBLE shape for $5 and fixed it up, played the heck out of it, sold it last year for a nice chunk
    2006-2013 - "Play It Loud Red" - I Bought this missing the battery cover in fairly nice condition, and sold it later with a replacement cover on e-bay
    2006-2011 - "Play It Loud Transparent" - I bought this one, at Goodwill like the other two for $5, but this one was parted out as the casing was in awful shape
    2007-2017 - "Silver Pocket" - Bought at a thrift shop, I played it more than the gray brick, sold it at Half Price books in 2017 with my only color
    2008-2017 - "Slime Green Color" - Only Gameboy Color I ever had and I never had a single color game, I sold it in 2017 at Half Price Books

    I have a silver Gameboy Advance SP. Thought I was getting a great deal on it from Sam Goody back in summer of 2004 for $60.. then the next year the AGS 101 backlit model came out. Still works great though, and seems to hold a charge forever.

    Was gifted a silver Gameboy Pocket Christmas of 1996, but somewhere around 2000 it fell behind my recliner and I rocked back directly on the screen. Didn't learn my lesson, and later rocked back on a copy of F-Zero X as well. Then I cleaned up my room.

    I still have a few laying around including one of the original ones along with the hard carrying case that looks like a giant Game Boy. I also have a mixture of GB Colors and Pocket and even one of the GB Micros. JUst wish I could find the charger for it.

    I have one, a red SP I got, I think, for Christmas 2003. Used to play Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure on it a lot.
    Real collectors drive Hondas, Toyotas, Chevys, Fords, etc... not Rolls Royces.

    If you color a Game Boy pink and put a bow on it, does it become a Game Girl?

    Zero, because 99% of Game Boy games and about 95% of GBC games in 2022 all are basically unplayable. Change my mind. There's Super Mario Land 2, Metal Gear Ghost Babel, Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening DX, Wario Land 3, Pokemon Pinball....uh anything else?
    GBA? Now there's a system.

    Huh? That's news to me. Was it Y22K related?

    The Pink Heart Gameboy DMG has been done already. I don't recall a bow though.

    I don't think he means LITERALLY unplayable, but rather just he personally doesn't like playing them.

    It would become Game Transgender.

    I have the Cobalt blue and the brighter lit Pearl Blue GBA SP handhelds. I had a banana yellow GBC, but I got rid of it less than 6 months after purchasing it. I couldn’t stand trying to see the screen on that thing.


    You might want to check out the Oracle of Ages and Oracle of Seasons Zelda games Baloo.

    Only if Baloo is already a fan of Zelda, because I can't see either appealing to non-fans.

    Just recently sold my Gamecube GBA player - decided when I want to play GB and GBA games, I'm going to play them on the real thing.

    - original Game Boy DMG-01 (found it in a closet at an old apartment, super yellowed and needs a new screen)
    - Game Boy Advance SP Famicom Color
    - Game Boy Advance SP Classic NES Limited Edition
    - Game Boy Advance SP Pearl Blue Backlit Screen
    - Game Boy micro (black w/ silver face)
    - Game Boy micro (silver w/ black face)
    - Game Boy micro (metalic light-blue)
    - Game Boy micro (metalic purple)

    - Super Game Boy 2
    - Nintendo DS Lite Ice Blue

    I really love the GBA Micros. It's been a number of years since I last played one though, I wonder about the batteries...
