Video game accessories are always pretty hit-and-miss, but I really do like the idea of the Game Boy Player. A system that can play Gamecube, Game Boy, Game Boy Color, AND Game Boy Advance games? Yes please!

Ah yes, Nintendo's Power Glove! As a child of the 1980's, I distinctly remember the excited anticipation I and my peers had upon first learning of this undoubtedly awesome accessory! "Everything else is child's play!" as Nintendo boldly claimed!



And then, some of us would eventually get the opportunity to try the Power Glove for ourselves... and met sullen, soul-crushing disappointment upon realizing that it's a near-useless dud! Like Lucas said in The Wizard: "I̶ ̶l̶o̶v̶e̶ the Power Glove! It's so bad!"


The juxtaposition of these two comic book panels capture how excited we were about Nintendo's Power Glove, and how subsequently soul-crushingly disappointed we were when we finally got to use one for ourselves!

Not super old school, but who remembers that garbage e-reader for the Gameboy Advance? You would swipe a bunch of cards and the data would do various things. I distinctly remember swiping 5 cards so I could play Mario Bros.. This is what we had before the ability to download games....

I've still got my eReader! Such a bewildering accessory. I remember quite liking it as a kid based on the novelty alone but in retrospect I'm not sure what I saw in it. Not only did you have to scan 5 cards to play a NES game, but you also had to scan both sides giving you a total of 10 codes you had to scan before you can play all three glorious levels of Donkey Kong. Did I find the action of scanning the cards themselves fun? That's the only explanation I can think of for my bizarre fascination with it.

If I recall correctly, I had Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr and Excitebike for the e-Reader, as well as some other random assorted cards such as some Animal Crossing cards which gave you nothing but a text box of weird dialogue from a villager when you scanned them, and one that lets you play the Game & Watch game "Manhole".

I think the Pokemon games gave my ereader the most use. There were things you could only get through it.
