--Nostalgia-- by oomizuao --Nostalgia-- by oomizuao
I finally got my very first GameBoy color! At the age of 24 though, but still... I have a GameBoy Color! :D and what's even better is I managed to get Pokémon Blue and Red as well! On top of that, I got Pokémon LeafGreen and FireRed for my GB Advance SP :D
Everything except the GB Advance SP was bought used (of course, as they don't make any of these things anymore), but they're all in great condition! :D
So, yesh, I hope you guys don't think I'm bragging about this though ^^; I really don't mean to, I'm just very happy that I finally got these things :)
(oh and the little cellphone charms are things I attached to it, as I discovered the Gameboy had a space for that and I really like it when I can attach little charms onto things ^^ And ohmygosh, the Gameboy even has a headphone-jack! This little machine is sooo cool <3 )

Oh, just one question though; when I turn on the Gameboy, the screen is still a little dark... Is it supposed to be like that? ^^;

Anyways.. I'm very happy with this purchase :) and I can't wait to start playing ^_^  I started playing LeafGreen on my GB Advance yesterday, so I might have to finish that first, or stop playing it for a while and start on Blue or Red instead, 'cause it'll be too confusing and time-consuming to play two games at once :XD:

This photo was taken with a 5 megapixel camera, so it's not a high-quality photo, obviously, but I hope you guys like it anyway :)

Awesome!  I remember when I first got my GB color (I was like 15.  The micro had just came out, and the ds came out later that year if memory serves me right).  And yes, it is supposed to be that dark.  What you need to do is go buy one of these www.ebay.com/bhp/gameboy-color…
Makes it a LOT easier to play.  Have fun! :)

Ugh nostalgia yes, I want to get one soon. I used to play it all the time, Mario and something else. I didn't own the console though, they were my cousin's but now I want one very much. Congratulations on what seems to be one in very good condition! The charms are sweet too.

The screen on the GB Color is dark because it doesn't put off as much light as the GB Advance SP.  It's the same as with my sister's old GB Color.  And our two GB Advance's have different lighting too.  XD

The screen is dark because you need a worm light for it.

There's a cool trick for Pokemon Blue and Red that you can do right away when you turn on the console: when the text "Game Boy" appears on the screen, press one of the directional buttons for different colour schemes. There are -obviously- 4 different extra colour schemes to choose from. Also, gotta love how easy it is to soft reset this console, just push down A+B+Start+Select all at once. Since the buttons are so close to one another, you get this done much quicker with this console than the later ones.

Agh, the newer handhelds have spoiled me rotten. Even though my green Gameboy colour was my first hand held console ever, I still can't help but go "Man is this screen dark when compared to the other ones."

you need a light accessory called a "worm light"

You know when these gameboys came out I always figured you were suppose to hang stuff off the corner, but here in america at the time charms weren't that big of a deal like now. Now that I think about it, I'm going to do it with my old game boy color!

About the dark screen... I don't know if they sell it but I got accessories for my gameboy.
I think it came in a pack. One goes over the battery pack in the back and is like a controller (like it gives you handles) The other hooked onto the top and folded over and it was a magnifying glass screen thing and it had a light so you could play the gameboy wherever
Not sure if they still sell those ^^;
My evil brother threw my gameboy down the stairs YEARS ago, but only about a year after I first got it when Pokemon Silver came out. Both gameboy and game were lost forever (mine was green where yours is blue ;P)

My childhood in a single pic. Game Boy is supposed to be dark. It doesn't have the light the SP does. I lost the GB a LONG time ago, and the GBA. My little brothers wore out (destroyed) my Game Cube, but I still have an SP. Happy playing!

You have a stitch charm!  That's adorable.

My parents didn't want us playing videogames when we were kids, so I never had one of those either.  I think it'd be cool.

Now I feel old. My first Gameboy was the infamous Gameboy 'brick', the very first Gameboy. You could kill someone with that thing. I still have it, and it still works :D
