Join Shawn Long of Nintendo Enthusiast as he travels back to Christmas of 1995 and figures out why he chose a Virtual Boy over the competition. He also takes a look at his Top 3 games on the system.
My eyes hurt...
Until you get a headache to go with it, you're still not a hardcore Virtual Boy gamer.
Lol I never actually had one, but my cousin did.... It's just a shame he's blind now. (I jest)
My eyes. Ze goggles do nothing!
i think the author forgot the sarcasm tag in the title...
There's sarcasm, and then there's obvious hate.
Remember renting it at blockbuster it was OK but nothing special though.
I actually owned one back in the day. The thing was a piece of crap; couldn't believe I'd wasted a spot on my Christmas List for it. Still, I kept it for about 5 months before selling it for $75 at a local videogame store.
"He also takes a look at his Top 3 games on the system." THERE WERE MORE THAN 3 GAMES!?
14 games were released in the US. Japan had to suffer 22 of them.
Hey that FPS game Japan got looked kinda neat.
That thing was absolutely hideous, I can understand Nintendo trying something different BUT dang, we had focus groups back then.. someone must have Q&A this thing and reported back to them of the terrible headaches and the pain at the back of your eyes.. I can still remember that pain. Strange thing was, it never released officially (that I'm aware of) in the UK (which is where I was living when I used this) It was at a Dixon's store (they still have those over there?) and I used it for about 20mins - which is all I could tolerate due to my eyes and head hurting.. At the end of the day - amazing concept, useless execution of said concept.
