Video Of Man Meticulously Restoring Game Boy To Mint Factory Condition

May 31, 2019

This is a fifteen minute video of Youtuber Odd Tinkering completely disassembling and carefully restoring a beat up old Game Boy (including awful dead-lined screen) he bought online to stunning, fresh off the factory floor condition. It looks glorious. Man, remember when you had to use an actual physical cable to link two Game Boys together so you could play two-player versus Tetris? "He used to try to strangle me with that cord whenever I'd beat him." My brother, ladies and gentlemen! He remembers that cable.

Keep going for the satisfying video.

Thanks to Madz, who agrees there's something incredibly satisfying about bringing something back from the dead (people and animals excluded -- that's black magic and shouldn't be wielded by mortals).

    Remember when we all had great eyesight and could see that screen before staring at that screen ruined it?

    Story time: When I was a kid I really wanted a Gameboy but my parents wouldn't get me one because I already had a Sega Master System. Occasionally I used to borrow a school friend's Gameboy to play at home. His Gameboy got a lot of use and it was pretty grimy looking. One time my little brother forcefully inserted the cartridge the wrong way around and the screen stopped working completely. I went to mom and told her what happened. She was pissed but said we had to replace it, so she gave me money and I went to the nearest game store and bought a brand new Gameboy. The next day I handed it over to my school friend and told him it looks like new because I cleaned it. This memory of finally buying a Gameboy only to give it away still hurts so much. (

    i remember my dad bought my brother and myself t one during the summer. He left them in the car on a hot summer day and lets just say tetris is the only game id be able to stick in it ever again...

    I owned a TI-86 graphing calculator which had a bad screen and needed some cleaning on the buttons. I decided it wasn't worth keeping so I pitched it.
