    ^ Sega CD had more hype than Halo 3 (maybe not that much) and was the biggest let down. A coworker and I was just discussing how crappy the games were even back then. (On a side note Jurassic Park for genesis was much better than the SNES version and the no blood thing on SNES was kind of crappy.) I started with a gameboy (not a console but still) and then the SNES. But If you want to go back a bit I did enjoy both Calico Vision and Atari 2600 so I guess I am getting a bit old as well.

    Or he could be 80 years old, or a 30 year old that didn't start playing games until he was a teenager. A person's age isn't always indicated by the games or consoles they play.

    My first system that I owned was a Gameboy. Before that, I played a lot of NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis.

    Oh man, the Gameboy was king at my house. Everybody had one- even my GRANDMOTHER. She played the shit out of some tetris.

    I had two old Gameboys for years before i got a Gameboy color (I skipped over the pocket).

    Man, the Gameboy was amazing.

    I seriously have about four Gameboys still. I have no idea how I acquired so many. My brother and I played Gameboy all day. Only one of them has the battery-pack backplate still on it.

    Most of my friends my age have similar stories (multiple Gameboys, lots of accessories, no battery door). Gameboy really was king.

    Man, I wonder where I packed them off to?

    I was going to say. I have one of those Gameboys still. Duct Tape on the back. Missing battery door.

    Nice.

    It's just our generation.

    You could probably kill a person with a Gameboy, too. It was about the same size and consitency of a brick.
