Kids Look Into Our Green-Tinted Past as They Try to Understand the Game Boy
"It's an iPhone case." Ow, my childhood.
The Game Boy is 25 this year (on July 31 in North America), and The Fine Bros. have some children to remind you that 25 years might as well be 5 million. They’ve got a better handle on the Game Boy than they’ve had on a lot of other outdated technology, which is probably because its newer iterations have survived even the advent of smartphone gaming. The Game Boy will outlive us all, and future alien archeologists will wonder what kind of civilization could create such an invincible device.
- Kids aren’t sure what to make of Luigi’s death stare.
- Old Apple computers confuse them, too.
- And Walkmans are like some kind of ancient artifact to them.
