Nintendo's Gameboy is granddaddy of the handheld console world and in its original, Pocket and Color versions has sold more than any other console, handheld or not. With greyscale graphics and an often difficult to see screen the Gameboy seemed like a non-starter back in 1989 when compared to the colour, backlit and networkable Atari Lynx. But thanks to unbelievable battery life, a keen price and the killer move of bundling it with Tetris, the Gameboy's success was ensured.
