Retro Tech: Game Boy

The Game Boy is the most popular handheld gaming console ever. It allowed us to take games like Tetris, Super Mario Bros. and The Legend of Zelda with us on-the-go, changing the gaming industry and our free time forever. On the 30th anniversary of its release, Marques Brownlee unboxes and explores how the Game Boy came to be, it's impact on society, and why it's leaving us feeling so nostalgic.

    I just love the fact that they had a surprise tech underneath their chair and still they came prepared to talk about gameboy.

    My mom bought me a gameboy back then and it was the best christmas present I have, I feel like a rockstar playing it together with my classmates and it was awesome!.

    The second you cut the seal on that box, millions of retro gaming collectors lost their minds! LOL

    I never realized how much I want a whole series of videos of Marques reacting to tech he’s never seen before. It’s so adorable when he was holding it and couldn’t figure out how to open it 😂

    I have a game boy advance, and I am struggling a lot to get the cartridges... I would stress one thing though, playing Mario on game boy will never be beaten by any other console I've come across so far... There is that taste that never fades ever... that's my view and how I enjoy the tech...

    This was awesome man, brought back childhood memories of wanting to get one so bad but not being able to. Looking forward to the next episode!

    This video was so fun! I was literally smiling the entire time and LAUGHED OUT LOUD! I wasn’t around in the 80s but the Game Boy Color was my jam in the early 00s 💕

    Amazing vid. I just don't like how they say that being a kid in the 80s was painful because we didn't have tablets and phones and stuff. That's not true. We were happy with whatever we had. It's not like we had a feeling of missing out, we didn't even know that stuff would ever exist. I'm an 80s kid and I had a very happy childhood. I actually probably get more bored now than when I was little! I'm also happy that I got to witness the birth of all that technology we now take for granted. And I'm sure the new generations will have a similar feeling 20 years from now. When the PS9 comes out in 20 years, you'll look back at your PS5 with fond memories in mind. It's just the circle of life!

    I miss my childhood so much, gameboy was my best present ever, along with some big lego technic kits.

    I won this at school because my grandpa was helping me sell the chocolate bars. He was taking them to his job at the Port of Long Beach and selling them to everybody. God bless him!

    That struggle to open the game case was the most nostalgic part for me 😂
