The Nintendo Game Boy Color is probably my favorite of all of the handheld gaming systems that exist to this day. And it also may have taken more enjoyable hours out of my entire life than my xbox 360. The Nintendo Game Boy Color comes in a beautiful pallet of solid colors and a nice screen to look at (without a backlight which most handhelds have these days that can damage one's eyes). It only takes two double A batteries and the Game Boy Color is ready to go. It is pretty lightweight and what sets it apart from newer handhelds is how it contours to the inside of your hand on the back, rather than being a flat square annoying rectangle. My personal favorite game that I play on this handheld is Pokemon Red Version (Note: the Game Boy Color only plays Game Boy Color games). This game stands the test and aging of time itself and plays just like I remember it, a nice faded red showing and some of the absolute best 8 bit music you will ever hear. I have been known to plug in headphones into the headphone jack at the bottom of the Game Boy Color, just to listen to this lovely music even better. The games are all good for any young gamer to experience to learn to appreciate the graphics of modern day technology while instilling other important life values such as friendship, trust, and ambition. Overall, the Game Boy Color IS "the very best, like no one ever was!" Graphics Quality Teaches children these days to not take their modern day graphics for granted. Think about it, has your child even seen an 8-bit game?! Game Variety Complete with sequels and game type variety. Controller Comfort Not a box rectangle like your DS! Ease of Use Very simple controls: on/off switch, volume control, A and B buttons, Start and Select buttons, and D-pad Durability Going on 15 years and counting!
