That’s me. I’m ridiculous.
I spent my entire weekend photographing packaging for Game Boy World 1990 Vol. 1, the kind of exhausting endeavor that makes you clutch your head at the end and say, “What in god’s name am I doing with my life?” But hey: Now you can look at photos of the packaging for every Game Boy game released in all territories through the beginning of July 1990. So… that’s something.
Here’s a real delight:
Ninja Boy. It’s terrible! As in, I actually feel a little angry that this game exists. But it’s super hard-to-find, and at the time I purchased it for video capture and scanning there hadn’t been a complete copy up for sale anyone online that I could find in the previous six months. So I paid a ridiculous amount of money for the pleasure of playing this terrible game and taking this photograph for you. I will have to sell approximately 75 copies of Game Boy World 1990 Vol. 1 in order to pay for this game. That is probably 25% of all copies it will sell in its lifetime, if I’m lucky.
Anyway, yeah. Thanks to everyone who supports this nonsense via Patreon, because I sure as heck am not getting rich here. I am deeply grateful to everyone whose contributions prevent my obsessive-compulsive tendencies from impoverishing my family. In return, I will give you scans and photos of a trashy Game Boy games.
What the hell has our civilization come to.
