Don't remember exactly when I got it. I believe it was around the holidays at the end of 1995 a few months after it came out. Couldn't even tell you what store I got it from. Walked in, they had them, went to the counter and asked for a Virtual Boy, got a couple games and was on my way.

Finally went ahead and purchased Teleroboxer. Got it complete for $12 on ebay. Great game, I had played it a little bit about 13 years ago and didn't really remember what it was really like. Played through a few bouts and it is a pretty fun game. Now all I need to do is find a good deal on Jack Bros. as it is quite expensive most of the time. There are still a few games I don't have, but Jack Bros. is the only game I'm interested in getting.

I need these 4 games to complete the US collection, never really thought about getting all the US games though.
Golf
Waterworld
Teleroboxer
Jack Bros.

I want to get Teleroboxer and Jack Bros. I just need to finally go to ebay and order them, never once thought about Golf or Waterworld, but maybe once I get Teleroboxer and Jack Bros. I might decide to complete the US collection.
I am nowhere near complete on the Japan collection, I only have Panic Bomber, Space Invaders, and Space Squash imported.

I am new to this site, just happened to check virtual boy on a search engine and it lead me here. Really nice site with a lot of info on this great system. I am not new to Virtual Boy, I've had it for 14 years now, got it the year it came out. It's a shame it died so quick, not a lot of games, but at least almost all of them are great, with many of them what I'd consider to be classics. On a good-to-bad game ratio, Virtual Boy has the highest ratio out of all systems in my opinion. Granted, not that many games came out, but none of them were real duds, maybe Waterworld, but I never played that game.
My favorite game is Red Alarm, followed by Wario Land.
Best find was Space Invaders: Virtual Collection. It wasn't really a great find at the time, I imported it as soon as it came out, so it wasn't expensive at all. I do consider it a good find now, since it goes for hundreds of dollars.

I am a collector of sorts, I have games for over 25 systems. I never understood paying all this money for a game you'll never play. I do have some sealed games, but only because I received them as gifts after I already had the games or I just picked them up in my travels. I do collect games, but I also play them. I know a lot of collector's like to display sealed copies of games, but not me.
I like to have friends come over, see an old game that looks interesting, and actually be able to PLAY it, not just show them the box. Now if they have a copy to play, and then they have a sealed copy, I guess that makes sense. I would just rather buy 4 or 5 other games that I will play instead of 1 sealed that will just sit on my shelf.

That is awesome!

Red Alarm is my favorite Virtual Boy game and Wario Land is right behind it.

I've played Teleroboxer, but don't own it. Teleroboxer and Jack Bros. are the 2 Virtual Boy games I still want to get someday.
