I have a couple of the gameboys. Right after I bought the latest gameboy a couple years ago
at Christmas, they came out with the 3D gameboy. I don't have the 3D. I like the 'Zelda' games
and 'Tetris'. I have maybe 15 or 20 of the little various games. I'll go months without playing with
it and then take it out and play with it for a week and put it away again. I some times play the
Mario games on it also.
The games can be addicting. I remember in the 70's how pinball machines were very addictive.
I have an ex brother in law that would play those things nightly for hours on end. Everyone
thought he'd have brain damage.
He turned out just fine, has a great life, etc. I have
an ex sister in law that played pac man every chance she got which was half the day every day.
She turned out fine.
When tv started going strong, people were afraid of their children watching it. They thought
their kids would go nuts!
It's like an old woman said once......'that boy has bad brains!'.
In other words, almost everyone can watch superman and know it is make believe. Unfortunately,
someone with bad brains comes along and takes it to heart at a theater.
