going on a trip soon, think i'm going to bring my Gameboy color with me.

I've been looking at used game prices. there's all kinds of random games I'd totally get. I'm thinking about getting that james bond game. Always wanted it when I was a kid but never had the money. It probably sucks but I kind of want it anyway.

I don't get this post, the last part of it. A game boy is inexpensive in 2014. He'd probably rather lose that than an expensive phone or emulation machine. What's to be misunderstood about that?

Your mistake here is thinking everyone has sentimental value over some fucking hardware. Since I was a kid, I've lost and replaced games and hardware throughout the years. All I care about is playing games. It doesn't matter to me or not whether the shit I'm using is the same shit I had when I was a kid.

All I care about is playing games. Replacing a GBC is a hell of a lot less than it costs to replace a portable emulation machine.

Stop projecting your sentimentalism on everyone else. I'm merely explaining why someone might prefer the option, you retarded fuck.

>> No.1495003

property gets stolen less often than you would think and then it's still better to not play your games while traveling on a tiny ass shit screen with no back lighting. yeah, real smart in the day of better technology.

That wasn't the point, retard. I explained why someone might care less about losing a gameboy, then the retarded sentimental police rolled in and pretended they don't understand how money works. I don't give a shit about how much you care about your gameboy. I'm explaining to you why someone else probably wouldn't mind losing one. Holy fuck you are dumb.

Yes, I know how sentimentalism works. I don't deny that people feel this way. However, I'm not talking about people who are sentimental. I'm simply explaining why someone might not mind losing a damn game boy. I understand how much you love your stupid hunk of plastic. Not everyone feels that way and that's the point I'm making. That much should be obvious from my post.

>Holy fuck you are dumb.

Says the person who came in this thread, misinterpreted posts, and started projecting.

in b4 "but some of us care about our shit!"

Not even the point I'm making. Not once did I come in here and speak for you people that have some sort of value for your shit. I'm talking about people who have less hangups over their property.

That's nice.

It also has fuck all to do with you going full autism over the fact that some people might not give a shit about losing their stuff. There was no reason for you to come in here and get butthurt from the mere suggestion that someone on this planet might not care as much if they lose a 30 dollar piece of hardware compared to something much more expensive.

Anon, this entire argument was instigated by someone who got butthurt because of the mere suggestion that one would rather replace a piece of 30 dollar hardware.

Nowhere in my original post did I say, "Everyone who has a Game Boy feels this way". I never did any of that. People came in this thread and started spewing autism over nothing, as if my comments were directed at them. They weren't.

Go read the thread again. Nowhere did I make this implication, but you keep trying to shove it into my mouth for some retarded reason.

Lel y u play these old shitty Game Boy's games? That's old tech and old outdated ideas made for an inferior device. Buy an iPad and play modern games that are more appealing and have better design philosophy (read: actual gamed and not too long and too hard epics like Mario Land) like Flappy Bird and Angry Birds.

So the two SP models are AGS-001 and AGS-101. 101 has a backlit screen instead of a frontlit one so it's in much higher demand and they sell for more. Your best bet for a cheap one is the 001 model.
