    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.
    We both break free if we make it on top
    If one should fall we both will drop

    We move together from here on out

    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.....

    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.

    Since my GBA recently broke I've been playing Red and Blue on the SP since it's the only handheld console that I have that supports those games. I'm going to try and get another GBA soon so I can trade Pokemon between Red and Blue to complete the Pokedex.

    ^ That's interesting. I've heard that the Super Game Boy displays the games using different colors that the Game Boy Color. Is that true?

    I use my game boy color; the same one I played them on to begin with. I find the lower power requirements of the color means much more battery life on rechargeable AAs than the SP battery. A worm light works well in the dark!
    I have claimed Electabuzz!
