The original Nintendo Game Boy. We had one unit that rotated between 3 families (haha), then a cousin in the US sent over her old unit, then grandparents bought a new one. Then all families had one unit each. Hahah. When the game freezes, you took out the cartridge and blew across the slot. Haha.
Simplicity and perfection. My childhood was spent playing videogames and reading. The times I spent playing this with my father and sisters are memories I always have with me. The soundtrack to this game also shows a lot of ingenuity on the composers (Koji Kondo) part. You had 5 channels to make audio, there wasn't a real way to play out chords and your sampling memory was super limited. Despite all that, the theme is recognized world wide. Not bad for a 20 year old game.
