It didn't save my life, clear a forest, help me keep my tent from falling down or bring world piece, but when I was deployed during Desert Storm my Game Boy saved my sanity. My NCO and I both had one. We could connect them and play Tetris during those long hours sitting in lines or on the tarmac waiting. It was just a green/black screen back then and we only had a couple of games but it certainly made the time go faster. We were always together and people knew if they saw one of us the other was likely to be connected by a cord close by.
