I'm going to post this here because it's somewhat related to Virtual Boy, and I do mention it here and there in the video :)

I lived in Japan for a year and I didn't see too many Virtual Boy games, certainly not at Book Off / Hard Off. Mandarake has some, and I did see Virtual Bowling once in Surugaya in Tokyo. I saw SD Gundam cart only once in Osaka, it might still be there but it was 60000 yen or something I think. There's not cheap there either.

Couldn't they at least have made it red? If I get this I will have to get a red film-thing to put in front of the goggles to create a better experience

VB Wario Land is by far my favorite Wario game.

Wario Land 2 and 3 just didn't grab me, it deviated too far from the 'Mario' formula for me. Having to collect/do certain things to progress? No thanks. VB Wario Land absolutely nailed the balance of collecting vs standard get to the goal. I like how collecting isn't mandatory to finish, but more of an incentive to play again and explore.


My thoughts exactly!

Oh; the answer is none, Nintendo has yet to even come close to what they did with VB Wario Land in the rest of the series.


I agree! The Wario series went the way of Castlevania and found it's way of doing things and never went back. A Wario Land Virtual Boy remake would be nice...

He didn't ask which -Virtual Boy- games were better than Wario Land, he asked which -Wario Land- games were better than Wario Land on Virtual Boy

Kind of a lighthearted topic maybe, but Iím playing through WLVB for the first time ever, and I am amazed at how good it is and how well it holds up. All of the powerups, the level designs, the fluidity of the controls, of course the 3D ó it hangs so so well together, and itís got me desperately wanting to play another one of these after I finish this one. Do any if his few platforming adventures equal this one (or better) in your opinion?


Actually I think VB Wario Land is the best game in the series. With Wario Land 2 the Wario series changed from "beat the stage while finding secrets and coins" to "run around a bigger stage looking for secrets and coins and you can't die, just get inconvenienced" which I didn't think was as good as before. The next best game in the series is Super Mario Land 3 Wario Land on Gameboy, which is still a regular platformer.
Of the later more exploration-based games, Wario Land 4 on GBA and Wario Land Shake Dimension on Wii are both pretty good though, but not close to Virtual Boy Wario Land in my opinion.

Very nice, but I still think filming into the eye of the VB has a certain amount of charm to it ^^ (although I'm biased hehe)

I helped a friend of mine make a top 5 VB games video, by adding my picks and voice. The rest of the video was made by Jordan. I showed him the Virtual Boy in person a few years ago, and he liked it. I like spreading the joy of the VB :)
