    Arawn. Had some red factions always after us in Thailand so it could have been one of them. I don't think they had Gameboy's, but I lay money on the MP's holding one or two!

My personal favorite was Scrabble.
    I was in high school in Bangkok at that time! We had a bunch of thai MPs guarding or school because there had been bomb threats. No idea why...

    My kids would never let me play with their game boys . . . for that matter neither would my then wife . . . nor would my then bosses! LMAO

    Pong was my first video game; played it after I had graduated from HS at a bowling alley arcade. It was stuffed in with a bunch of pinball machines.
    Think it was another decade before I saw an in-home video game, it was a car racing game where the cars looked like colored rectangles moving around on your TV screen.
    My . . . how times have changed. Can't wait til they port Eternium to a VR platform; can you imagine fighting a Garm the size of a train locomotive, or a 13 ft tall Kara.

    Yes, played Megaman I, II and III. Was blown away by FF Adventure (Sword of Mana). . . then FF Legend I and II. . .then Link's Awakening. I don't remember what my last game was.
    :-D
    Seriously, some things were better done back then. . .

    I would never have guessed that 30 odd years later I would be stuffing tens of gigabytes of RAM in servers.
    For my first Apple Macintosh (~1984), I bought my first hard drive to play MYST. Copied the entire CD to the 1Gb hard drive and it played faster than on the optical drive!
    (It cost me $1000 for 1000 Mb)

    I had a Gameboy and played Final Fantasy Legend, too.
    Loved this game!
    Some details I remember:
    In one level you played inside a giant, fighting bacteria and the like.
    Hyper oneshotted most enemies and had to be equipped to a robot to be reusable.
    If you wanted to get Seven you had to hunt those cactus-guys, which were extremely rare and strong.

    Ah, memories are something beautiful.

    Links Awakening was the first Zelda Game I ever played. I had it on game boy color. I found Eternium that same way.
