Gameboy - Kids

“Here I am when I was probably 8 years old. I wish I could find some of this stuff; it might be worth something. Believe it or not….I’m a married man now.”

    I’m pretty sure I remember seeing this very same photo in an issue of Nintendo Power back in the day.

  2. Jarrod says:

    The Nintendo Sleeping Bag is a hot call. Had that. Aw snap, back left corner, the Play-A-Tune Piano book. #clutch

  3. Taylor says:

    Not awkward at all. My brother would have been dressed like this posing for this pic if he had all that stuff. He was a Nintendo freak by the age of 3.

  4. Hey, where’d you guys find this picture of me as a kid?!

    Ha, pfffffffft, I wish…

  5. Jessie says:

    This is not so much awkwardness as it is awesomeness.

  6. Mikey says:

    That kid is lucky! Back then, that was a ton of swag!

  7. floss says:

    looks like the bedroom of me and everyone i knew at that age, although i’m more of a mega man kind of guy.

  8. Anthony O'Neill says:

    The reason little Mikey is too scared to go outside

  9. pamela says:

    More like “life before 1990”

  10. fergojisan says:

    Nice display! It looks like Michael threw away the game boxes though, I don’t see any in the picture. Michael, do you still have this stuff or still play any video games?

  11. Evan says:

    I kindof wish we could go back to the a b select start days when simple games like zelda and contra ruled the Land

  12. Kaitlyn says:

    What a cool kid.

  13. SmackGod says:

    well it is cool, but he wouldnt be a MILLIONAIRE i can find all that stuff at my flea market, those magazines are about 2 or 3 bucks a piece, that lunchbox and thermos about 40 bucks, trash can 30 bucks, those games 10-15 dollars a piece, an old nintendo about 60 dollars, maybe a hundrednaire but not a millionaire

  14. Emily says:

    Dude, if this kid still has half this stuff, he could probably sell it and be a millionaire. There are some treasures in that pile.

  15. Sara says:

    wait a minute…….WHERE IS THE CEREAL?!?

    its for breakfast now
    It’s a cereal WOW!

  16. Snowrider says:

    HMMMM. What’s that strange knobby looking thing on the upper right hand side of the TV? And what’s that odd device and all those boxes underneath it?

  17. Emily says:

    Are you kidding me? This is life AFTER puberty for most men I know!!

  18. Rachel Goforth says:

    My son would have been in Heaven! Just like someone earlier said this stuff would be worth some money now seeing as this is original stuff as opposed to what we have now. My son LOVES anything Mario and Luigi.

  19. Alice Kaye says:

    I am so jealous. Hell, it’s still one of my favorite games of all time [original Mario]!

  20. NeoYi says:

    There is nothing awkward about this: Only AWESOME.

  21. ShekkyRabbit says:

    That would be worth a lot of money if he still has all of it.

    I MEAN… trading memories for money is wrong.

  22. ween says:

    what a waste of money.

  23. Phrankeh says:

    I have an extreme case of jealousy right now. xD

  24. rigidthree says:

    He’sa so proud ofa his collection…atsa my boy!!

  25. coobee says:

    OMG, those ears! He’s so adorable!

  26. jokestuffs says:

    i think in future he will discoverd a new game by combining alll these games

  27. noneya says:

    Great picture to bring out at family reunions.

  28. pete says:

    oh my god, i had that exact garbage can in my bedroom for like 15 years. loooooove!

    • Doe says:

      Ha ha ha, for a split second I thought you were being sarcastic and talking about the generic white plastic garbage can right behind the kid. Then I saw the metal can. 🙂

  29. tensider says:

    My ten year-old self is completely jealous at the haul. My thirty-seven year old self is …still pretty jealous at that sweet haul.

  30. JT says:

    Thermos for the win.

  31. Rosieposie says:

    OMG! I was thinking this looks just like my cousin Michael and then what do you know it was submitted by Michael (not the same one but made me smile!) Game on!!

  32. Best Christmas ever… till that gorilla started throwing barrels…

  33. His brother Luigi go jack and squat,

  34. Mario looks a lot younger without the Freddie Mercury mustache.

  35. Chris says:

    Bet this was a setup to try to get into Nintendo Power.

  36. Rebekkah says:

    Gosh, that kid got a lot of crap for Christmas!

  37. Anne says:

    Reminds me of my oldest nephew, except all he got was an Atari system and a couple of games. Anyway this kid looks like my oldest nephew (before the days of Super Mario).

  38. TheRickMoranis says:

    I think the only thing really awkward is that he didn’t go the whole nine yards and give himself a fake mustache. Otherwise … this is my childhood.

  39. Monica says:

    I love Super Mario!!

  40. cocamojoe says:

    I would love to see a post-puberty picture.

  41. Sarah says:

    somebody had a really good Christmas.
