Gaming Console
    (April 21, 1989- )
    Designed by Gunpei Yokoi
    Released in Japan (April 21, 1989)
    Released in the United States (August 1989)
    Third-generation (8-bit) handheld gaming console
    Many consoles were packaged with 'Tetris'
    If you think about it, playing with a Game Boy sounds creepy.
    Feminists thought its name was sexist.
    For its first six years, you could only get it in one color: grey.
    Its video display wasn't in color or even black and white; it was black and puke green.
    It wasn't as technologically advanced as the Sega Game Gear or the Atari Lynx.
    Despite this, it took more than a decade before Nintendo finally created a Game Boy successor that was more than 8-bit.
    Like its bigger brother (the NES), you had to sometimes blow into its cartridge to get it to work properly.
    It's impossible to get that 'Tetris' theme song out of your brain.
    It had a larger library of games than its handheld competitors at the time.
    It was a lot more battery-efficient than their competitors as well.
    Due to those above reasons, it outsold its competitors by a long shot.
    In 1995, it released several different colored models that weren't grey.
    Its Super Game Boy accessory allowed gamers to play its games on the Super Nintendo.
    It was the first handheld gaming system that allowed simultaneous play among four players.
    It spun off several successful handhelds with the Game Boy name (Game Boy Color, Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Advance, etc.)
    Some of its spin-offs are able to play Game Boy games (backward compatibility).
