      The biggest issue with the original Game Boy and the Game Boy Pocket alike, was the fact that they were black and white consoles, or black and green for the original Game Boy. So Nintendo, obviously wanting to rejuvenate sales for the Game Boy, decided to make the Game Boy Color. The Game Boy Color is a superior hand held to its predecessors, but the Game Boy Advance SP is backwards compatible with the Game Boy, and since that has a back light, and it also plays Game Boy Advance games, this pretty much makes even this portable system, which is a big step up from its predecessors, still obsolete. However I should still go in-depth about this for the sake of collectors, and in case you really

      don’t care about the Game Boy Advance games and simply want to play original Game Boy.

      Now, compared to the original Game Boy, it isn’t quite as sturdy by comparison, but it’s still fairly well built system regardless. The system has the same amount of buttons as its predecessors, the B and A buttons, the start and select buttons, and the directional pad, and of course the on and off switch. Like the previous portable systems, it has a simple design that aids in its simplistic charm. The Game Boy Color comes in different colors as well, but the common color is see-through purple, and it looks rather good. Now, of course the biggest technical advancement is the fact that the games are now in full color. It even ...


      • takes older Game Boy games and gives them some color as well. The new Game Boy Color games look significantly better than the original Game Boy games and it really shows,

        Again, I have to iterate again that this console, while not a bad console in and of itself, the original Game Boy and Game Boy Color has a great library of portable games, but if it wasn’t for the fact that the Game Boy Advance SP is backwards compatible with these games, the console has a rechargeable battery, and even a back light so it’s easier to see what’s on screen, it pretty much makes this portable system obsolete and not worth the money. The only reason I can see anyone wanting to pick the original Game Boy,

        the Game Boy Pocket, or even the Game Boy Color, is for the sake of collecting and nothing more.

        So yeah, in my book, this system deserves a 6 out of a 10. If you really, honestly don’t care at all about Game Boy Advance games, (of which I would be very surprised to hear considering how many good games the console has) then go ahead and give the console more points and it’s really not a bad console, it simply just suffers from modern day convenience, specifically as I mentioned many times before, the Game Boy Advance SP. Still, out of all of the original versions of the Game Boy, this is the best one, and thus I recommend this one the most out of all 3 of them.
