    This is one of my favorite pictures because you know all that kid’s friends are all “your mom is the coolest! She plays Gameboy and my mom just yells at me to clean my room!” And then Gameboy Mom makes them ants on a log or like cracker barrel cheese and crackers for a snack.

      I made Ants on a Log for myself earlier today. Still a baller snack.

    I remember getting a GameBoy for Christmas when they first came out. I showed my mom how to play Tetris on it.

    I hardly ever saw my GameBoy again.

    Then she showed my dad how to play Tetris. My younger sister never saw her GameBoy again. My parents would sit for hours, addicted to that game.

      I feel like there’s a whole slice of the millennial generation that lived this exactly. I did eventually get my Game Boy back from my mom and big sister but it took a while.

      The only GameBoy game my mom got hooked on was Super Scrabble.

    It’s crazy that photographs perfectly capture what the 90’s actually felt like.

    Us kids used to pull up chairs around the computer desk to watch my siblings play “Myst”, “Riven”, and “Twinsun’s Odyssey”.

    It was awesome.

    I was ace at super mario land for the gameboy. I still remember my joy the first time I decided to play it again immediately after winning and discovering it was harder.

    The ending music was super nice too.

    Well the latter half of the levels is pretty tough as I recall. Had problems getting there. (Though as I recall, the biggest problem with Game Boy games was the battery consumption. Kids these days have no idea.)

    The final level, however? Easy easy. Epic airplane fun.

    Hope she handed the Game Boy to the kids once she got there! Because who doesn’t like blasting shit up with a plane!
