I first played a Virtual Boy in the Sears at the Independence Center Mall in Independence, Missouri in ‘95 when it debuted.
I initially wasn’t overly impressed with the tennis game and the black and red. I said it’ll tank if they don’t bundle a better game.
I’ve had a Virtual Boy since 1998. Bought it loose w/ Mario Tennis from a Game Exchange. Never found games in the wild.
It wasn’t until I got into eBay a couple years later that I finally got a stack of games, including a few gems I can actually get hooked on.
Soon thereafter my display went out.
Sometime later my cousin RunnerPack performs the solder mod’ on my ribbon cables, back in business. Thanks Amos!
