It was a tragic day when, after being dropped on the floor, my original Game Boy was left with a bunch of dead lines on its screen.

YouTuber’s Tiny GameCube Is a Heartbreaking Look at What Could Have Been

Unlike the low-effort PlayStation Classic, the NES Classic and SNES Classic are among the best attempts at reviving the lovable consoles from days gone by.

Nintendo’s VR Upgrade for Zelda Messed Me Up

Despite being made of cardboard, Nintendo’s Labo VR Kit is a surprisingly excellent virtual reality upgrade for the Switch, bolstered by an excellent roster of games and VR experiences. Nintendo has just extended its Labo VR Kit support to its A-list titles The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, and unfortunately in both games the VR feels like a tacked-on experience that only serves to amplify Labo VR Kit’s shortcomings.

A Simple Emulator Patch Makes Many Super Nintendo Games Look Amazing on an HDTV

In 1991, the Super Nintendo was a graphics powerhouse, but today, some of the tricks it used to create 3D effects on 2D-focused hardware are hard to look at. Emulating classic SNES games on a modern hi-def TV exaggerates those graphical shortcomings, but a modder has found a way to make some titles actually look beautiful thanks to some clever math.

Considered Nintendo’s biggest failure and the butt of endless jokes, the Virtual Boy delivered an embarrassingly limited virtual reality experience when it debuted in 1995.
