Don’t ask me why but for some reason I want… No I need this device! I know, I know, it’s the holy grail of crapwhen it comes to gaming but I think that’s why I want it so badly. I am a sucked for underdogs; if I have no dog in the fight I cheer for whoever is trailing, whoever is ranked lowest, or the team with the least historical success. Some might call this a problem, I call it a case of “chip on the shoulder” syndrome. Either way, that allows me to sympathize with the VB, because it is the redheaded stepchild of gaming and no one loves it. Well I don’t care if I do get migraines and begin projectile vomiting after mere moments of gameplay. I don’t care if the sitting position required to play this monstrosity causes my spine to deform. I want to play games the way they were meant to be played… In moderately impressive 3D and only in black and red.
I’ve come close to pulling the trigger on the VB for a few months now. Someone locally has one but it isn’t in the best shape so I’ve held off. I also struggle with whether or not I want to drop the coin on getting it in box or not. I typically only worry about getting a console or game that plays but since I’ve never owned one of these before and I’m trying to ascend to that “next level” of collecting, I’ve been contemplating CIB on this one. The problem I’m having is because I know so little about the console I’m not sure what to really look for or how to check for any future issues. I did see one recently that I knew I could pass on because its controller cord had been chewed through…. That makes things simple. Hopefully one will just appear to me soon but I’m not getting my hopes up.
So what is your black sheep console? Do you have one that everyone else bags on but is a must have in your collection? Let me know below!
