Portable Gaming Then....and....Now

Ok let me take you back in an era where portable gaming was taking it's first steps In my eyes atleast, that would be the original Gameboy. When I received my own rectangular brick of a gaming system from that day on I was infected with the portable lifestyle. I spent many of my early days playing Tetris, Super Mario World, and a certain game I can't recall at the moment it involved throwing boomerangs and saving a princess. As I grew from my childhood into adulthood the portable world has also evolved quite drastically in the past 20 years. From a Green and Black screen with only a handful of buttons to the wonderful future or should I say present where now our portables are beautifully displayed in rich 3 Dimensional Graphics from a range of super bright lcd screens and 3D that requires nothing but your eyes to be displayed. Kids growing up today seem to take these wonderful machines with a grain of salt not realizing the advancement and the technology it had to take to get this far. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time to show my past self a PSP or a 3DS to truly see the amazement I get when I see these systems Now. I remember when I used to play pokemon on the bus I used to always tell kids you know someday they will have portable N64 and no one believed me. Now that I didn't completely hit my mark on my prediction I wasn't so far off the mark. One example would be the newly re-released game Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D. Just the thought of that particular game being on a handheld half the size of my original Gameboy is truly remarkable not to mention the graphical updates and whatnot. I guess the point I'm trying to get across here is that videogames I used to only imagine in my mind as a young gamer are now today my dreams coming true and it is a truly wonderful time indeed.
