What's your favorite (or least favorite) Game Boy game?
We're talking old school, OG Game Boy games here.

It's Tetris' 30th Birthday. What are some of your memories?
Tetris just hit a milestone and joined the "30" club. It's not a bad place to be, I begrudgingly joined it myself a few weeks ago. But enough about age and our progression towards receiving those tasteful AARP cards in the mail, let's talk blocks.

Tragedy. My Game Boy died this weekend. Only last week I was lamenting the state of gadgetry and how things aren't built to last these days.
I even used my Game Boy as an example of a quality gadget from times past, since it's nearly twenty years old and was still going strong. But then, yesterday, I put it down on the table after a session of Tetris and the red light flickered and then it was gone. Something must have come loose inside as it sounds pretty rattly in there, but I need a triwing screwdriver to get it open. At least I have a spare and all is not lost.

Stealing electricity and making breakfast
Though it was slightly larger than most kitchen appliances, the original gameboy was a great toaster. The fact that it played games was a bonus. When I was kid I used to plug my gameboy into the outlet in the street light box across from my grandmothers house in brooklyn to play on the city's tab. I only did this when the dead batteries in my grandmother's freezer werent ready "recharging". Anybody have any stories about the lengths you went to to game on the go?
