My green Game Boy Color that I got for Christmas 1999. Such great memories I have of that thing.

You bet I still have it, although I haven't actually used it in forever.

This little, horribly limited gaming device. :D



If you can't see the image, it's Game Boy Original.

DS Lite. Mostly because I wasn't very interested in portable gaming until Okamiden was announced.=/

My first portable video game system was a teal Game Boy Color, obtained as a birthday present on 5 March 2000. I gave it to a classmate in 2003. The first game I got for it was Matchbox Caterpillar Construction Zone. The second was Pokémon Gold almost a year later, 3 March 2001.

I no longer still have that specific GBC or that specific copy of Matchbox Caterpillar Construction Zone, but I do have that same copy of Pokémon Gold, and I have even replaced its save battery.

I, too, first owned a purple GameBoy Color. I still have it, and it still works.

A clear purple Game Boy Color so that I could play Pokemon Blue.

Edit: If we're counting stand-alone handhelds, then my real first handheld was the Tiger Electronics Aladdin game. Lol.

My first handheld console was a see-through purple Game Boy Color, but I had some stand-alone handheld games before like an Animaniacs one. (God, I was such a '90s kid...)

My first Game Boy game was Pokemon Yellow.

Game & Watch, not sure which, maybe Donkey Kong. For some reason I did not have a Game Boy until GBC came out. None of my friends had it either, and I'd probably not seen a Game Boy, only heard the name, until I bought a GBC to play Pokemon games.

My clear plastic purple Gameboy Color, which didn't last long cause I dropped it in the tub by accident. ;~; . Then it got replaced by my golden-yellow Gameboy Color that I still have today up and running.
