The Nintendo Game Boy turned 30 yesterday.  It hit stores in the U.S. on July 31st, 1989.  So if you had one . . . you’re feeling very old right now.  (It came out a few months earlier in Japan, on April 21st, 1989.)

Over 1,000 Game Boy games were released between 1989 and 2001.  And someone just put together a list of the 30 BEST GAMES.  Here are the highlights . . .

1.  “Tetris”, 1989.  Everyone had it because it came with the console.  So it’s also the best-selling Game Boy game of all time, with about 35 million copies sold.

2.  “Pokémon”, 1996.  They did a few versions with different characters.

3.  “Super Mario Land 2”, 1992.

4.  “Wario Land 3”, 2000.

5.  “Super Mario Brothers Deluxe”, 2000.

6.  “R-Type”.  A shoot ’em up game that hit arcades in 1987, then Game Boy in 1989.

7.  “The Legend of Zelda:  Link’s Awakening”, 1993.

8.  “Donkey Kong Country”, 2000.  The 1994 “Donkey Kong” game also made the list.

9.  “Mega Man 5”, 1994.
