The Nintendo Virtual Boy is one of the biggest commercial gaming product failures.


I remember trying a demo machine and wondering how you could possibly be expected to have any fun with it.  To this day I've never spoken to anybody irl who owned one (or will admit to it, anyways).

Gameboy Advance. The screen was not "Backlit" so it was difficult to play games because the screen was too dark. Wikipedia said, "Original Game Boy Advance, which had been criticized for being somewhat uncomfortable to use, especially due to an overly dark screen."

 



Gotta wonder how some stuff passes testing/quality control.

It was called the Xbox One.   Smiley Very Happy

GBA is frontlit screen.

Backlit reduces your sleep anyway. Nintendo probably had insomnia at the time ;o

Most of the devices listed are perfectly good devices.

 

What really sucked...Tiger handhelds. They were huge before I was born, but they stuck around for a long while. I had the GameBoy Color and some kid would ask how I played games besides Mario on it. It is because Tiger handhelds only ever plaqyed one game (and they typically SUCKED). If you really need a good assessment of them, go find the Angry Video Game Nerd episode on it.

That is YOUR problem. You bought a device that played games you already disliked.
