"I love all game boy systems. This one was fun to play. I didn't own one, but my friend did and I always had a good time playing it. I like that it's backwards compatible with the other cartridges, and I'm still on the hunt to catch on of these for a decent price."
"I wanted to like this more than I did. While the games were improved over the OG GameBoy, the lighting for the original GBA was awful. It was frustrating having to spend extra money for accessories just to be able to play a game. This was the first and only handheld I ever bought; I decided I was better off sticking with consoles."
"A fun handheld, and finally offered a backlit screen, something that was missing from its predecessors. No more having to rely on the next streetlight while sitting in the back of your parents car for screen lighting. A bit small in the hands as an adult, but for kids this was a great size. Great games featured on this one as well. "
"Just got a hold of one recently. This game out during my dark ages of gaming. I had no idea this thing played Game Boy and Game Boy Color games too. It has its own solid collection. Quality screen. Short lived but deserved more. "
"So what’s better than a game boy? An advanced one…. Joking aside this thing was a huge up grade fit better in the hands. Colors were awesome, battery life was decent. Maybe it’s all the memories but it’s 5s. Still have one too, should bust it out"
"My brother had one of these, so I played it with him some. It had good games for the time, didn't take a huge number of batteries to play. The color aspect played a little better than the original GameBoy Color I felt. It was a good system overall. Was mostly left behind so quickly because of the speed at which the industry started to move."
"Metroid fusion and Metroid Zero Mission rekindled my love of 2D Metroids. Besides those I loved Final Fantasy Tactics, and Minish Cap was a fun quirky Zelda game. This felt a good leap above the GBC. "
"Gameboy color wasn't a bad handheld. Jumping up to a color backlite screen made all the difference. Better orientation than the original game made it more comfortable to play but still a little too small."
"The first game system I received brand new. My first game was Star Wars Ep. I! But I played many pokemon games! My best memories were of playing in the backseat if the car with my external plug in light!"
"I remember getting my GBA with a copy of Pokemon Silver. I played the crap out of my console until it got a screen bleed. Some of my favorite games on this from Megaman Battle Network to Fire Emblem. There was a lot of experimenting that went on with this console."
"This handheld system I had to share with my siblings. I did not play this as much as the Gameboy Color. But the games i did play were a lot of fun. I loved being able to take this with us and play on the go"
