This one picture shows how far Nintendo has come since the Game Boy era

  • What you're seeing is a Game Boy Color from 1998, stacked on top of a Nintendo Switch from 2017.
  • Both consoles are running the biggest "Pokémon" games made during those eras.

The Game Boy is 30 years old this week. How time flies.

I remember getting my very first Game Boy - a Game Boy Color - around 1998 or 1999.

I was about 10 years old, and my parents gifted it to me after a successful (but difficult) dental procedure.

Back then, I was blown away by the Game Boy Color. I couldn't believe Nintendo had managed to make a tiny game console that could actually produce colors!


Twenty years later, the Game Boy Color looks downright ancient.

The first Game Boy Color could support up to 56 (!) colors on screen.

The Nintendo Switch features a 720p high-definition display that can produce millions of colors.


Yes, the Nintendo Switch is considerably bigger than the Game Boy Color, but it's basically running a living-room quality game console in the palm of your hand.

Both systems in the top photo are also essentially playing the same game, too: The Game Boy Color is running the first "Pokémon" game ("Red" or "Blue"), while the Nintendo Switch is running "Pokémon: Let's Go," which is a remastered 3D version of "Pokémon Yellow" - basically the same game as "Pokémon Red" or "Blue," but you can choose Pikachu as your starter Pokémon.

Seeing the games side by side really shows how far Nintendo has come over the years. And the fact you can play either of those games from the toilet, as aspects of the top photo might suggest, is also pretty astounding.

Technology is incredible!
