In honor of the Gameboy's Birthday

I present to you my small but humble Gameboy collection.

First we have the system that started it all, the original Gameboy:

Soooooo many nights of no sleep and so many road trips made better by this magical little handheld.

Next we have the Gameboy Color:


The Gameboy Advance:

I logged more hours on this version of the Gameboy than any to date.

The Gameboy Advance SP:

Compact and ready to go.

The Nintendo DS:

I would play it more often but my 4-year old daughter keeps stealing it to play Build-a-Bear Workshop

The Nintendo DSi:

Since my kid kept stealing my DS I decided to go get the DSi. Now she wants this one so she can take pictures! I just can't win with her.

My small collection of Gameboy (original) games:

Monopoly, Centipede/Millipede, Tetris, 720, Double Dragon II & Kirby Tilt n Tumble

My Gameboy Advance games: pt. 1

Super Mario Bros. 3, Dr. Mario/Puzzle League, Super Mario World, Sword of Mana, Yoshi's Island & Tetris Worlds.

My Gameboy Advance games: pt. 2

Final Fantasy Tactics, M&M's Blast & Namco Museum

My Gameboy Advance games: pt. 3

The Pinball of the Dead!

My DS games: pt. 1

Puzzle Quest, TLOZ: Phantom Hourglass, Pokemon Diamond & Metroid Pinball

My DS games: pt. 2

BrainAge, Elite Beat Agents & Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow

And finally my Legend of Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass feather stylus for pre-ordering the game.


I hope you have enjoyed this small stroll through my Gameboy collection as much as I have enjoyed collecting it. Here's to another 20 fun filled portable years!

About ChillyBillyone of us since 7:08 PM on 02.03.2007

I'm the former Community Playdate Manager for Destructoid. Looking to play some games with other Dtoiders? Check out the forums and watch the blogs and front page for all of the fun!

I'm definitely more "collector" than gamer these days. Sure I still play my Wii U/ Xbox One/PS4/Vita and 3DS, and I love them all, but I just don't have the free time to play them like I used to.

I started my gaming life on an old Atari 2600 that my dad bought us for Christmas. I used to frequent the local arcade (early 80's) and I have a passion for anything pinball.

As of this update (2/20/2016) I currently have:

50 Consoles
61 Handhelds
2100 physical copies of various games
350 digital copies of games
Tons of other video game related items

Comic books? Yep, I read 'em. Here are some of my all-time favorites.

Cerberus the Aardvark

Groo the Wanderer

Howard the Duck

Usagi Yojimbo


I also love music, all types really. If I had to pick a favorite album of all time I would have to go with:

The Cure: Disintegration. This album is perfect, from beginning to end.

My daughter is also a gamer of sorts, here she is lavishing in all of her Nintendo plushies:

Oh yea, did I mention that I love Pinball more than any other game ever? Because I totally do.

I also like to doodle when I'm bored, as seen below

I drew that when I was bored.

Sometimes, when I'm not gaming or collecting I'll post blogs, here are a couple recent ones:

Tales from the Battlefield - Operation Rolling Hell
