The Binding of Isaac Rebirth

Interview with Ahmed Bin Fahad, owner of the world's biggest Nintendo collection

The following portion comes from an interview with Ahmed Bin Fahad on Nintendo Life:

It all began 20 years ago when I automatically started asking my parents to buy me the latest consoles and the latest games. Although I used to get them occasionally as presents, I made sure the old ones I had were stored in their boxes and were kept in a safe place; then I realized that I was obsessed with Nintendo.

Therefore a thought came to my head of collecting some clean copies of the old games of my childhood, as their memories are close to my heart.

Random Time! - Virtual Boy games being played on Google Cardboard via emulator

Once again, something Nintendo won't be happy about, but interesting nonetheless. I'm still baffled as to how Nintendo hasn't re-released some Virtual Boy games on the 3DS. I thought for sure that Wario Land: Virtual Boy would be a shoe-in. Thanks to Mr_Raccoon for the heads up!
