    Default Favorite original Game Boy game?

    What's your favorite original Game Boy game?

    I'm thinking Tetris. I like Pokemon and Super Mario Land a-lot, but Tetris never gets old.

    I didn't really have that many Gameboy games. I guess you could say Mario Land was my favorite, though. I also had Pokemon Red, a Megaman game, Ninja Turtles and a few others, but I don't even like those anymore.

    Pokémon Red Version, of course. I'd also put Donkey Kong up there, since it's a great platformer with puzzle elements, and Wario Land.

    Mario Land 1 and 2, as well as the Wario Land series. Looking back on it, the Gameboy didn't really have that many great games.

    Not a game, but I loved the Gameboy Printer. Tetris is a given, but I enjoyed Mario Land 2 the best, and of course, Pokemon Yellow, that's what started my Pokemon addiction.

    The only games I've played on Gameboy was pokemon games. So I would have to say Leaf Green.

    I feel really old lol. Seeing that so few people on this thread have actually played original Game Boy games.......

    Some of my favorites on the original Game Boy are Pokemon R/B/Y, Tetris, Navy SEALS, and Pokemon Silver (it played on the original Game Boy as well). Other ones that I've played include Star Wars (ported to the Game Boy from the NES version) and Star Wars Yoda Stories.

    Actually thinking about getting the original "brick" Game Boy from Ebay just for fun, the battery life is insanely good, better than any handheld in history (up to 40 hours, the 3DS has nothing on that lol). Only problem is that pea-soup colored green screen, saw it first hand on my best friend's Game Boy when I was a kid. Then again, I might just get a GBA for my old games, since I just sold my Game Boy Pocket.

    Pokemon and the Mario games interested me the most during this time.

    Makes me feel old too lol

    I actually still have my brick Game Boy stored away, and I will not, under any circumstances, get rid of it. Actually, I only put it away a few years ago when I got my Pokemon LeafGreen version, and started playing D/P/P.

    The colors are a bit off, but when you've played the thing for years, they kind of look normal

    Yep, it was so classic. The only doubt I have about buying one is the screen quality. From what I remember back when I was a kid years back, the screen was legible, and it wasn't all that bad (my friend was always playing Ducktales on it). But all the reviews that I've read now say that it's blurry, with hard-to-see faint graphics. Is the screen really all that bad?
    The battery life was really epic, though. 40 hours on 4 AA's.

    I actually dug mine up, and tried it out. It's not blurry, although it's a pain to set the right contrast, I keep messing it up, either too light or too dark. But once you get it right, it's pretty good. They're not quite as good as DS graphics, but not that bad. Battery life was amazing, and so much better than any kind of handheld electronics that we have today.

    The only thing I hate about it is that I can't play in the dark. How did we ever survive the no backlight era? lol

    Hah, oh the Game Boy. Back when Nintendo was run by Hiroshi Yamauchi, and was much more humble with its success.

    Strangely enough, Pokemon might just be my favorite overall title due to how much I played the heck out of it. I even defeated the Elite 4 100 times believing silly internet rumors. Second would be Zelda: Links Awakening. Not only did I love the story, I glitched the heck out of it. I even ruined my copy one time, but thats another story entirely. I threw the game away because of it.
    Pokemon: The Theme of Secrets


    At long last, I am returning with my Fan-Fic. Just need to find a better host. Blogger has done its course but I need just a little more recognition.

    I freaking HATE "Mega" Evolution.

    Unsurprisingly pokemon blue, but after that I distinctly remember being glued to tom and jerry...

    I like Alleyway and Wario Land very much. Don't ask why but I almost love breakout-like games. And Wario Land is just good.

    Super Mario Land 2 Six Golden Coins. It was honestly one of more creative Mario games in terms of level themes, and it was easily up to par with SMB3.

    I haven't played very many Gameboy games however, so I can't really say it's the best game for the system. I always wanted to to try Kirby's Dreamland 2.

    (And I didn't mention pokemon because this is a pokemon forum and such an answer would be so predictable)

    Although I can't call it my favorite, the Jurassic Park 2 game is one of the best movie-tie games I've yet to play- probably the whole "cheap handheld games are simpler to make so it's easier to make them decent in a short time" maxim coming back around. Combat platformer with legitimate pattern-memorization boss fights. Only 256 KB too, last I checked. Amazing what you can do in small spaces.

    Pokemon is my most played by a huge margin, but that's both a given and a fact of life for every Nintendo portable. Haven't really played enough of them to make a fair assessment, though that's slowly been changing. I know MegaMan V is supposed to be a standout.

    The hard arse. Anyone who ever thought Nintendo lacked the verbal cohones knows nothing about this man.

    Granted, Miyamoto still brings down the hammer pretty hard too, whenever he does.
