The Game Boy is easily one of the most iconic handhelds of all time. The simplistic 4 color graphics and terrific sound hardware make for an awesome 8-bit experience. Even better, games can be enjoyed with proper controllers and on a TV thanks to the Super Game Boy and Game Boy Player peripherals.

The simple gameplay mechanics, the simplistic, yet charming graphics, and the awesome 8-bit music hit all the right retro notes, and holds up well despite it's vintage.
