After turning 27 last week, the last thing I really wanted to see was something that would make me feel really old but since those around me insist on making me feel that way anyway, I figured I might as well watch this video of some kids reacting to Nintendo’s classic handheld, the Game Boy. I’ve seen similar videos in the past which I have generally found their confusion amusing but this video had me banging my head on the desk (especially when the one kid thought it was an iPhone case) and screaming at my monitor. Maybe its just because I have always had a huge love for the Game Boy and have acquired a nice collection of them but I couldn’t help but rage when the kids tried to put the cartridges in upside down and called it junk.
A couple of these kids give me a little bit of hope for the future but the ones that call it junk and want to throw it in the trash make me want to sit in a corner with all of my Game Boys and cry. This is why I have always believed kids should be exposed to gaming the way I was, oldest to newest, not the other way around!
Have fun watching this video and if anybody needs me, I will be in bed playing Tetris on my Game Boy.
