I started playing Tetris on mine recently, and man - the nostalgia!!! :D

And thank you so much for saying that! :D Means a lot! :)

LOL @ Tetris - I downloaded Tetris, SML & SML2 6 Golden Coins for my 3DS - and YES MAN, the nostalgia!! :D

NP, it's the truth. I like it very much since I tried creating game peripherals my self in the past I have a critical eye for those. :D Nicely done! :)

One after the other, everything takes time. Since I'm watching you I will not miss the right moment. :D

it WAS a happy childhood after the gameboy color was released
purakashi's avatar
Sorry but I do not really understand what you mean. Are you saying that it was a happy childhood before GameBoy Color was released or after? Anyways thanks for taking time to write! Appreciate it! :)

I still remember the fear whenever you reached an important part of a game, or a stage you never managed to achieve in the past, and suddenly the red light decided to become a faint, greyish crimson...

I do not think i ever begged to the god i do not believe in for help as much as i did in those situations.

I could not agree with you more! :D I still play on GameBoy from time to time and today some games are still so good. But yeah. That despair you feel when you were so close and then BLIP it was out of batteries.

I think the worst time was when my GB died on me while fighting the last guy in the pokëmon league.
I wanted to die, because i had skipped a lot of grinding cause ianxious to follow "The storyline" and i was quite underleveled.

It had been a hard and difficult achievement, to manage to fight him in under those conditions and many re-try´s and then my gb died on me D:

But i guess it was part of the experience!

Ouch! I feel your pain. I also used to rush through rpg's especially to follow the storyline when I was a kid. I totally get what you mean by that anxious feeling to just get to the end. That is something I still struggle with today but now I try to slow down a bit and take time exploring worlds and to find easter eggs and whatnot. :)

Yeah! The experience! It feels like gaming today is sometimes a little bit too easy (at least the mainstream ones). I mean I remember Super Mario Land. Still today I haven't been able to beat it. I was never good with platform games tho hehe. :D

I beat Super Mario Land about 2 months ago, by turning myself with my brother.
It took us about 15 years haha
purakashi's avatar
Damn! Then there's hope for me then! :D I will give it an honest go soon! :D For me it'll be 18 years. Hehe.
