Happy 20th birthday, Game Boy

Launched in April 1989, the Nintendo Game Boy has reached its 20th birthday. The handheld shipped 120 million units during its 14-year production stint (every member of the Stuff team had one growing up) and blew away competition from the likes of Sega’s Game Gear and Atari’s Lynx. Over the years it’s provided entertainment from the likes of Tetris and Super Mario Brothers, to wildly popular Pokemon, and even produced ace perephirals like the first Game Boy Camera. Not a bad run for a 20-year old.
