Obama says the youth need to stop playing GameBoy
During a recent stop in Texas, 2008 Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama spoke with the youth in an attempt to enlist some younger aid in his campaign. He wanted them to recruit their friends in his campaign, stating "I want you to tell them, 'It's time for you to turn off the TV and stop playing GameBoy' ... We've got work to do."

We understand the blind labeling of all handheld gaming taking place on Nintendo's GameBoy, it's what our parents and grandparents call all handheld gaming devices to this day. However, when one is trying to enlist the aid of the youth, it's best to understand what they're playing and how the gaming landscape has changed since the early 90's.
