Happy Birthday! I still have mine working. :-)

I played the original one (not the pocket), the color, and the advance (not SP) versions. Back to my toddler days under the late morning sky, where most anime was broadcasted on WKAQ-TV on those mornings.

I had became a Pokemon freak with it from 1999 to 2003, enjoyed numerous titles with it, sigh, returning to a long gone era

I still have my original Game Boy somewhere, I think. I know I have my Game Boy Colour as well. The Game Boy was legendary, and it still is really. As I understand it, Tetris is still the All Time bestselling game, having shifted around 30 million copies. Is it any surprise? No, not really. Tetris was massively addictive and really fun. Then of course there's Pokemon, which is almost as old as I am. I've been playing Pokemon games for nearly two decades now, though not as much as I used to. I don't think that there will ever be a console as iconic as the Game Boy though, it's just truly spectacular.
