Game Boy Advance Collection

No Caption Provided

The Game Boy Advance was the first handheld system I had owned since the Game Gear, and I didn't come into possession of it by choice. I was at E3 2001 and Nintendo had a big line for a chance to win prizes, so of course I got in line. There was an animatronic Wario voiced by Charles Martinet himself who would comment on everyone playing the game as they passed around a microphone for each person to introduce themselves. The contest didn't involve any actual games. It was basically a giant roulette wheel that spun around the circular table that a dozen or so attendees would sit at. Basically, whatever landed in front of your designated space, you won. One person in each spin would win a new GBA, which was a few weeks away from release in North America. Suffice to say, I won. I had a brand spanking new Arctic white GBA... with no batteries and no games. I couldn't even buy a game for it until about a month after that.

On a funny side note, I was wearing a PlayStation t-shirt that day at the show, which Charles Martinet made fun of me for. He (as Wario) argued that I shouldn't be allowed to win the GBA.
