I feel pain watching this
@SyntaxError, I know Pokémon yellow wasn't the best gen 1 game
@SyntaxError, i don't know how kids will ever game like we did
@TR8R, that's exactly what a traitor would say
@BigJohnson86, be that as it may it is still the truth
@TR8R, Pokémon red the whole way. Charmander is the only starter for me.
@SyntaxError, what's even worse is that one time I saw a 40 year old man try to do this to an old blackberry once
@BigJohnson86, I feel that way about any Pokemon.
This planet is doomed
@BerserkerNinja9, ok but if I handed you a ticker tape could you read it? Or would you stare at it like it was broken?
@satan of the north, People say stuff like this without considering this. These kids know touch screens, it's not their fault they immediately assume touching the screen will work
@18bluecat, the kids don't know it cause they never had anything different
@satan of the north, I'm not saying this planet is doomed because of the kid I'm just saying this planet is doomed in general
@BerserkerNinja9, solid point
@satan of the north, I don't even know what a ticker tape is.. other than the title of a song by the Gorillaz.
@Connie Lingus, my point exactly haha thank you. It's an obsolete way of communicating over a distance. It was a strip of paper maybe 1" wide that just had holes punched into it that represented #s, letters, ect.
@BerserkerNinja9, nice backpedal lol
@satan of the north, backpedel nothing I just had nothing clever about the picture so I posted my opinion on current events
@BerserkerNinja9, regular use of touch screen technology = planet doomed ok then
@StarsAyyy, no crappy inhabitants = planet doomed
@BerserkerNinja9, Did you type that on your touchscreen smartphone?
@Thecoolaccount , are you people not seeing the previous comments
@StarsAyyy, 1. That is a very general statement. 2. People say things in comments that have nothing to do with the picture, all the time. 3. Some people can't handle a joke.
Just goes to show that kids don't need touch screens yet we give them to them anyway. She's about to go play with that non-touch screen for a half hour.
I have this exact color game boy and currently am playing Pokémon Yellow.
Why does everyone freak out when a younger person doesn’t know what an old device is? Like, what, do you expect them to come out of the womb quoting Rugrats or something? Give them a break. Technology has come a long way and we should be happy for that.
@Smash My Mouth, and then we get these hipster nimrods, who keep inventing new "retro" tech, like those keyboards that look like turn of the century typewriters...
@Smash My Mouth, I didn't see anyone freaking out in this gif?
@TR8R, By “freaking out” I meant demonizing a child for being simply ignorant. It’s not their fault they were born in the time they were.
@Smash My Mouth, are you referring to the comments? Because 90% of those are just jokes
@TR8R, Then it’s an overused one.
@Smash My Mouth, so are most jokes to be fair
@Smash My Mouth, it's more about the failure to problem solve. Instead of trying something else and exploring the buttons, she continued to try to use the screen in spite of it being ineffective.
Honestly I'm not angry that's adorable
*furiously snatches from her hands due to blatant disrespect*
This is what we have become. I am sad.
We have failed the next generation. 😢
this is so sad
I just found my old Game Boy Color a few days ago, green just like the gif. Pokémon blue was still in there. Aaaah, the memories...
i find this offensive
I was so afraid she was going to shover her fingers through the screen.
