    In all seriousness though, this is cool and I love that Nintendo's able to make its games and hardware work together so well. I pretty much gave up on playing video games from when my son was born until I got a Switch because games got inconvenient. The Switch makes it easy to play games again and I love it.

        Tetris on Gameboy? That's all you need for a good road trip, right there! I wouldn't mind getting a hold of an old Gameboy with Tetris. I feel like the price would be too high nowadays though,...

        Tetris on Gameboy? That's all you need for a good road trip, right there! I wouldn't mind getting a hold of an old Gameboy with Tetris. I feel like the price would be too high nowadays though, with all the collectors around. Plus, I can play frickin' Diablo 3 on my Switch! It probably wouldn't be worth it except for the nostalgia.

          Right? I got the free 3 months of the Nintendo game subscription from Twitch and I tried a wide variety of the games on offer, and I can say that barring nostalgia, the gameplay on offer is equivalent to some of the flash games that are available for free online. Not even the really good ones, the simple ones that are like "my first flash game".

          Game development has come a long way.
