Supposedly the Gamecube had a port on the bottom of the console that would allow you to play Gameboy games on your TV. THIS IS REVOLUTIONARY.
How am I possibly finding out about this now? Was this a hidden secret this whole time? Apparently, people are claiming they knew this existed, but I won't believe that.
I can't be the only one that didn't know about this existence.
To say I'm jealous of these people is an understatement. I was fully addicted to my gameboy (can you believe that?) and being able to play it on an actual TV would've been electric. I could only imagine how pixelated these games were on the big screen.
I'm more shocked/pissed that I'm finding about out this capability now, not necessarily that I wasn't able to use it as a kid. As fezzburner says, it probably was a much better idea than it actually performed. It's like stunt food, no one wants to eat a burger that is completely covered in melted cheese. What am I supposed to do with my hands after that?
This Gamecube feature may be the best hidden gem in the gaming industry. If you know any more of these gaming secrets, tweet me. I can't be living in the dark anymore.
