Watching This Toddler Try To Play A Game Boy Will Make You Feel Old

The Nintendo Game Boy revolutionized portable gaming in three major ways- it allowed gamers to take multiple games with them on cartridges, it let them use their headphones and it offered multiplayer options via the Game Link port.

These were amazing features in a handheld gaming device in 1989, and even though the black and white graphics were somewhat dull games like Tetris and Dr. Mario were fun and addictive.

But kids today grow up with smart devices that have touchscreens, HD graphics and online connectivity so to them the Game Boy must seem like an ancient relic, one which they can't figure out how to play.
