    Loved this series dude!
    I've got a good one: The Pocket PC. What enabled the first smartphone. Technically the COMPAQ IPAQ h3630 with a GSM expansion sleeve was the first smartphone back in the day. - Jaime

    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!

    • MrScratchproof
      MrScratchproof 3 months ago

      @bradley brown You're absolutely right. I miss those things too. Especially those big cardboard boxes that PC games used to come in. They were massive and only contained a CD-ROM and an instruction manual but they were the best. We had it good. We really did.

    • TXF
      TXF 3 months ago

      @bradley brown Yeah, I remember anticipating a CD release, heading down to Walmart when it finally came out, and grabbing it. Listening to it on the way home. Now I just load up Spotify, or find some mp3 download site. It's definitely not the same.
      Then again, the same can be said for games. I have an all-digital Xbox Series S, so my library of 500+ games is all digital. No going to a store to pick out a game that looks cool based entirely on the boxart anymore, of seeing a neat looking game in a magazine and rushing to the store to grab it, I just load up the online store, buy a game, and download it. I also have an Emulation Handheld, so the same even goes for retro games, minus the buying part.
      I've actually downloaded every issue of Nintendo Power years ago, and load 'em up on occasion. They're still fun to read through.

    • bradley brown
      bradley brown 3 months ago +1

      I was born in the 90s and am completely blind, sure I couldn't see the games but you bet I gave them a go.
      I played a lot of fighting games back then, this was when accessibility wasn't even a thing.
      You wanna know what I miss hugely? tapes, (cassette tapes,) and even cds. I feel like as amazing as games/netflix and all that is, the magic of actually waiting and getting something delivered to you is missing. Oh sure, amazon exists and I love it, (where else can you get 5 leatres of vinigger?) But it's not the same.

    • TXF
      TXF 3 months ago +1

      True. We were every bit as social back then too, since there was no real online to play games with people, you'd have to be in the same room as your friends to play together. Hell, a huge chunk of my childhood was spent trading Pokemon with kids in school, or down the street. Not to mention Arcades still existed. I spent a lot of time in my local mall arcade back in the day.
      Hell, we have Pokemon Go now. But back then, I remember actually taking my Game Boy with a copy of Pokemon Red around with me, and seeing other kids out and around playing it too. I fondly remember one time seeing someone playing, and I always had a link cable in my little case, so we traded a couple Pokemon right there on the sidewalk. I didn't even know the kid. The original Pokemon Go.

      personally i think being an 80s kid was better (obviously i am biased) but for us, everything was new and exciting, we didnt have anything to compare it to or claim it was 'trash' because this other thing was better. at the time, it was the best that ever was.

  • Nazir Katabaro

    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...

    • TXF
      TXF 3 months ago

      Might I suggest looking into buying a flash cart? I have an Everdrive GB X5 for my Game Boy and Game Boy Color games. There's also the EZ Flash Omega for Game Boy Advance games. They're pretty much just game cartridges, but they have a Micro SD card slot that lets you load roms onto them and play them on the real console. You could bring an entire collection of games with you in one or two cartridges if you want.
      Might be a good option to buy so you could at least play the games while you build your collection up.
      If you look them up, you'll probably find out that you can run GB/GBC games on the GBA flash cart. But I wouldn't recommend it. It's not running them natively. It's actually running them through an emulator, and while normal GB games are fine for the most part (though there is a bit of lag), GBC games are broken a good chunk of the time. I'd definitely recommend getting one flash cart for GBA, and another for GB/GBC.

    • Nap Time

      you can get cartridges for the advance with like 150+ games on them off amazon for about $15.

    I've watched this kid's videos since the beginning, and it's so rad that he's now making these beautifully edited documentaries like this. It's like this dude's career is an example of Moore's Law. Insane. He's advancing at the same lightning rate as the tech he reviews.
    And by the way, perfect video length for this kind of thing. Really like a video-podcast.
    Nailed it, man.

      Well he is hosting this...
      However for Clip-Share to choose HIM instead of nobody or someone from Clip-Share means something.
      This is because what he has done so far in this field. What we as audience follow him looking for. I think in the end we are all here because of that 🤓
      And also I think we all agree that it couldn't be better with any other host for this kind of a program. Even if he is just hosting.
      Love this series...! 🤩

    Hmm. I loved the Gameboy and watching this brought back some fond memories but I think attributing the presence of all of todays handheld gaming to the Gameboy is a bit of a stretch. Handheld gaming was destined to happen one way or another, it's just that Nintendo were the first to do it successfully. So yeah, not sure if I really believe the final sentiment.

    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 💕

    I love these I bought two one original grey and a yellow for playing somewhere else so if I break or damage the other the original is still good.

    Love how this video covers a bunch of major categories of the Gameboy's influence. It meant it was a little light on the actual _gaming_ content of the platform, but I think as a general overview it's fantastic. Also I died a little inside when the Gameboy was flamethrower'ed, even though it survived.

    This was cool to watch. My grandfather owned a record store from 1976-1995. He had Centipede and Pac-Man arcade game that he would rig for me to play for free in his shop. I was in heaven 🌺❤️

    I used to own a gameboy colour. The memories of Pokemon and Tetris are just too legendary. Next came along the PSP for me

    Used to play with my brothers game it’s as a kid. Gotta say loved it so much. I remember playing legend of Zelda on my brothers old saves, mega man, Kirby and the amazing mirror. Probably the most fun I ever had a kid. I really wish some games got a rework like link’s awakening did for the switch. I would love to see four swords, Kirby and the amazing mirror, bomber friends ( I know this exists but it’s not the same ) and so much more on the switch. Nothing can get me that feeling of launching it and playing with my little sister. Hearing that “DING”

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

    I had one as a kid but since I had a psp already when my parents got me the Gameboy, I felt like it was a joke. This gives that experience some context

    My father owned the original Gameboy, and we still have it to this day. It's a family treasure.
    I grew up with Nintendo consoles such as the gameboy color, then the Gameboy advanced followed by the NDS, 3DS and finally the Switch. I never got the Wii or WiiU.

    I don’t collect sealed stuff, but watching you cut that seal was hard because I know I could trade that for a fat stack of awesome games that I would actually play. It was very hard watching you torch one too...
