Yes, 25 years ago we saw the true beginning of mobile gaming come to life. All at once people around the world were introduced to a little puzzle game called Tetris and the world has never been the same.
I remember quite vividly the day I got my first Game Boy. It was my 9th birthday. I was never the same. I do not think at the time my parents may have fully realized what they had done. Being able to take my love of Nintendo any where I want seemed light years ahead of its time. Car trips were awesome because I was at full liberty to play and play…until my 4 AA batteries burned out.
Fast forward 25 years and now we have mobile gaming coming out of our ears. Think about it for a moment. If it is a device that has screen and is portable odds are it plays a game on it in one form or another. Even the old Nokia call phones had Snake on them!
How about you? What was your earliest mobile gaming memory?
