^ I'm surprised you didn't blather on about touch controls, that's not like you!

It's an age thing, imho. Those of us who were growing up with one have (mostly) positive views on it (although the poor green/yellow screen with lots of ghostling, bad visibility and mono speaker sound was really nothing to brag about... :wink: ) whereas kids these days are more accomodated to the touch-screen/multimedia devices that can output fast, almost "console level" 3-D graphics also. So of course you can't expect them to be impressed, although some of them may still "fall" into older titles like the Pokemon games, Tetris, Mario, Zelda and so on. :wink:

My friends think I'm crazy for having an original gameboy instead of an iPod or iPad.
Get an ipod, jailbreak it, get the gameboy emulator and have all your gameboy games in the palm of your hand at all times !
I was considering that, but it doesn't feel authentic enough for me. I have to play gameboy games in their original, monochromatic, non-backlit glory.
