      The Virtual Boy was a really interesting video game platform. It was gaming’s first real foray into three dimensions. Even though we tend to credit this leap to the 64-bit era of video games, the truth is the Virtual Boy was the original pioneer. Admittedly, it wasn’t a very successful one, but it was a pioneeer

      • gamers headaches and this greatly discouraged extended play. Also, the red and black colors were sharp contrasts and could also induce headaches. Furthermore, the library of games was on the poor side. Simple games that used three dimensions, and yet made no attempt at utilizing dynamic polygon work, weren’t really well received. In an age where
        Mario’s platforming reigned supreme, no one was interested in timed button presses to make Mario beat Bowser in a tennis match. They just weren’t interested in it, even though I’d say the Virtualboy was a good move on Nintendo’s part.

        The truth is, though, the Virtualboy hasn’t aged well at all. Unless you’re a collector, don’t bother hunting.
