Pretty scenery and mountains are boring. The Game Boy makes long road trips fun.
I remember this family trip to Mt. Rainier when I was 10. They bought me a Mickey Mouse coloring book for the road trip. When we did get there, and we were heading back to the parking lot, I thought "Alright, I finally get to go back to my coloring book!!" But no, we were looking at the sights AROUND the parking lot. So I was bummed. I dunno, I guess kids think looking at s bunch of rocks is boring. You tend to appreciate things like mountains when you're older.
true that tom true that it save you bored life yes it at lease it did for me.
Oh yeah!!! I still remember the games I bought specifically for my family's roadtrips. I got Duck Tales in 1992, Mega Man II for 1993, Duck Tales 2 for 1994, Spy vs. Spy for 1995 (though we didn't go that year), and Link's Awakening for 1996. I'm pretty sure I got Darkwing Duck for 1997 or 1998 but never opened that one up to this day (I have to since the game is awesome).
I remember I used to get carsick when I played my gameboy in the car, finaly I got over that when I was like 7 but, those were some boring car rides, especially with the gameboy sitting right in front of me and not being able to play it.
I always carried a pack of double AA's on me when we went to like the 7 lakes or somewhere far lol
That's why I always bring extras.
So true. I remember using my holiday trip to Greece playing through Pokemon blue.
Yup. Then the battery dies D:
I always got insta-motion sickness when I tried
It's too bad I always got motion sickness whenever I tried playing my Game Boy in the car during family trips. :'(
that's what it was made for
Damn right it did, also gave me a great excuse wear headphones
Yeup remember hating long trips since there was nothing to do before having a handheld.
It made me say "we're here already?"
For the love of God yes. A 12 hour car ride becomes so much more manageable when you're, say, trying to catch every Pokemon.
Try playing Ice Climbers for the GBA on a mountain. It's wild!
I get car sick
*raises hand* happened to me
