NYCT Flashback: Remember the original gameboy?

Maybe you were one of the fortunate kids that was around in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Maybe you were able to get your hands on the original Nintendo Gameboy system? I’m talking about dot matrix, bulky, ugly, colorless, and the super duper awesomeness that is 8 bit heaven! This was a time of innocence, a time for crushes, just a simpler time, a time that I miss very much. Please check out this short but super awesome video of some Super Mario Land World 2-2 Gameplay!

If you are anything like me, then watching this clip, and hearing this song will take you on a long trip down memory lane. I can’t pinpoint exactly why, but hearing this almost moves me to tears. I love this song so much! It elicits a bigger emotional response than even the Bubble Bobble or original Super Mario Bros themes get out of me.

There are few things I regret more than not trying to fix my original gameboy.

I just chucked it a few years ago, and to this day, I carry the pain. LOL.
