    I feel old because I still have my Virtual Boy. I can't explain how uncomfortable it is to play, but I loved Mario Tennis on it!

    I never had a Virtual Boy and only a few of friends had it. 

    Love my GameBoy Pocket.  Still works to this day.

    I had Virtual Boy growing up and played a lot of Mario Tennis on that thing. Though, now that I think about it, I never needed glasses up to that point, but a couple of years later my eyes were so bad that I couldn't go to school without wearing glasses. Coincidence?...

    Really been enjoying these deep dives a surprising amount, remind me a bit of Danny O'Dwyer's Bluffer's Guides/Escape From Mount Stupid series and Chris Bratt's Here's a Thing. Keep up the good work!
