    Which is the handheld you have your first memory about? Which Nintendo handheld did you first play on as a child? Do you remember how old you were when it happened?

    My first handheld was probably one of those dollar ones ( BRICK GAME 9999 in 1) that was monochromatic and boasted many games in one (although there were just a few with slight alterations or difficult level), from which I recall Tetris and racing better. I probably was around 7 years old or younger.

    I owned several during the nineties, they were pretty entertaining.

    I was going to say the Game Boy, but I saw this picture and I remember having this before the GB.

    I might've played a Game and Watch of some sort too.

    The first handheld I ever played on was a Gameboy Advanced. I actually still have this too, I found it in an old box not too long ago. :D

    That's pretty cool you still have this. :D
    I hope you also found some games to go with it.

    I owned one of those too. I didn't even know it was produced by Nintendo at the time. I didn't even know what Nintendo was back then. Haha... :X'D:

    Haha. I don't think they are from Nintendo but they sure seem to have been every where. Pretty cool to know you also had one. Do you remember what colour it was?

    I probably saw them around long before I owned my first one.

    It was gray. But this thread is about the first Nintendo handheld you've played on... :Shy:

    Yeah, my bad. Then I hijacked it with my answer. I was thinking handheld in general. Sorry about that. :>_<:

    This old thing:

    The screen was terrible, but it played Super Mario Land 2 and that's all I needed back then.

    Holy shit... I feel old.

    To correct my past mistake:
    I think my first Nintendo handheld was the Gameboy Color and my first owned game was Pokemon Silver.
    I don't remember how old I was but I think I was around 14 years old. We bought it from a second-hand market.
    IU also recall getting a Game Boy like @Akiranon's for like one dollar. It was dirty cheap.
    I can't remember if I got this one first or the other one. For this one, a neighbour lent me Link's Awakening for a day. Haha.
    I didn't use it for a while until I bought a few games for it, at the same second hand market. The GBC used less battery and lasted longer so I think I just used that one more.

    My brother played his Gameboy so much, I got really jealous of the attention it was getting, I threw it against a wall.

    Idiot child. It survived...because Nintendo and because I was a weedy little turd.

    I'm sure I played an Original Gameboy for a few minutes after school, when a classmate was showing off theirs. I think I played some Bubble Bobble.

    I'm also certain I played plenty of those old Tiger Electronics games. Those were shit, but it was all we had, yo.

    The first handheld I spent any time with was probably the Gameboy Pocket or the Gameboy Color. My cousin let me play quite a bit of Dragon Warrior Monsters and Tactics Ogre on those.

    @Kaynil

    What the heck is that thing.

    My first handheld, and first experience with video games, was the Game Boy Advance. I was 4 years old when I first played one, so it was either in 2003 or 2004.

    Hahah. Let's say it was the affordable option if a Nintendo handheld was out of your wallet's reach. :lol:

    My first Gameboy colour was a golden Pikachu edition. I think I cleaned that screen once a day.

    ... if I had it now, it'd be worth a lot.
