    Default What do you play the originals on (besides emulators)?

    The other thread was closed down, so here's a new thread. Remember NO EMULATORS! (Sorry for shouting.)

    I also included a poll; it might be fun to track everyone's preference.

    I always played them on GBC and GBA, didn't have any other consoles they could be played on.
    This is the future we made for ourselves
    But is it really the dream we wanted to live in?

    The present has to be treated as precious
    Or we will regret it when it has become the past...

    I played my old Pokemon Blue on a Gameboy Classic, Gameboy Colour, Super Gameboy, Gameboy Advance and Gameboy Advance SP at one point or another.

    I played it on my Gameboy Colour the most, though.

    Does... does stadium count as an emulator?

    If it does, I guess I vote GB Advance SP. Until I need to use headphones. Then suddenly I wish I'd used a regular gb advance.
    I... think if you click this it hatches or something? *is a newb*

    I mostly use my GBA SP, because of the rechargeable battery.

    For the purposes of this discussion, Stadium counts as "Other," like the Super Game Boy.

    I just booted up my ancient Blue file on my GBC last week. Good times - the Elite Four up to Lance only use Super Potions.

    My extremely old SP. Although I think my brother lost it so.....
    Take a moment to consider just how nothing nothing really is....If you understand this, then you just solved the universe.

    The truth that each person...each soul...is a book. And when we lay our feelings out in the open...and we give them no name...and we give them no author....and we give them no description.....who will actually read them..........?"

    You can use the link old Game Boy games on a GBA SP? I thought the link cables weren't compatible.

    My old games don't work anymore, but if they were, I'd be playing them on the GameBoy Advance SP. And that would've meant I would've never let my little brothers use my copy, and get it lost in the house.

    ...oh well.

    I always play R/B/Y on my Game Boy Advance SP. I sometimes play it on the Game Boy Player, but I feel it's much more fun with the SP. =P

    I only have a gameboy color and a ds. So I guess I only played the games on those.
    The world needs more weird people who know how things work and who love to figure it all out.
    Being different is not a crime, and people who tell you it is are just jealous that you've picked up a skill they never in their wildest dreams could acquire.
    You can code. They cannot. That is pretty dang cool.

    I might understand why you would say that. I have this dyslexic cousin who I gave a Game Boy Pocket, and he "lost" it, along with the Super Mario Land cartridge included. Luckily, I did not give him any Pokémon games, or else he would be scared to see me (my Gen. 1 and Gen. 2 Pokémon games mean a lot to me). I usually like to play my Pokémon games on my Game Boy Color and Game Boy Original (a.k.a. the Grey Brick), although I do use the Game Boy Advance (SP) as well.
    I feel like the "Gen. 1 Pokémon Prince of the Midwest". Currently, I competitively play English Gen. 1 and English Gen. 2 Pokémon games, because Gen. 3 and later on is not worth my time. I also do not use NetBattle at the moment.
