Handheld games on a bigger screen
I feel this is going to be a difficult product for me to review as it's not actually a game itself, it's a means to play many games in a certain way. that said that certain way doesn't have to be "on a bigger screen", there are other obvious examples like no required charging or battery changing, perhaps you wanted to use a gamecube controller to play the games or just a regular controller in general.
for me? i've never owned a GBA but i've played some games... i remember not knowing how to play tetris on the regular gameboy when i was barely a toddler, i've played other games like mario land 6 gold coins, donkey kong, donkey kong country (final battle), and the only 2 i've beat were mario vs donkey kong and zelda link to the past (first time i'd played that one, good times). the point i'm getting at is with the library of games the GBA has, i've hardly even touched a fraction or know what i'm getting into even... these games were meant for on-the-go situations, so what happens when they're only played at home?
besides that, i don't think i'll need to worry about this since it isn't a current thing happening (not like when GTAV first came out and someone got stabbed the second they left the store so the stabber could play... not like when zelda- twilight princess first came out and i had the game stolen from me, twice), but having the disk on its own is quite a bit of money... so i have it hidden when i don't intend on playing, though i have other expensive games in my library so it almost feels pointless.
in any case that's my ordeal. it's an expensive piece of equipment, hardly even a scratch on the disk so i'm actually worried i'll be the one to ruin it, but overall it's exactly what i wanted... now i just need an actual GBA lol.
4/5 due to a sort of outdated system and so it doesn't become so highly regarded that the chances of theft rise.
