Re: Should I buy an original Game Boy?

I've heard some screens have dead pixels, but I've not seen it myself. I need to get my old Game Boy out, to see if it's developed any problems.

I would recommend getting one for historical context, tho you will need to adjust the screen contrast knob for some games.

Re: Games that are perfect examples of great design?

I usually use the "simple to learn, hard to master" standard. Combine that with your variety requirement, & I pick: Tetris Ms. Pacman Galaga Bosconnian Adventure Super Mario Bros 3 Donkey Kong Land 2 (I may modify this later to add reasons, & games which didn't quite make the cut.)

2600 Pacman is better than Shark Attack tho. Pacman's maze may be boring, but you can't get stuck on the walls.

Re: Sg-1000 console review.

They have similar screen resolutions, but the NES could display more sprites, maybe more colors too. And it had hardware support for scrolling. The ColecoVision & SG1000 might've been able to display larger sprites. The PV1000 displayed character graphics in 8 colors. The 7800 gave you more movi...

Re: Should Yooka-Laylee have the controversial icon or no?

Oddly this is one of the least toxic boards I've been on. :)
