If yes why does it have plastic foil on it?

Potential customz:
>Backlighting
>Sound Outlet
>Get some kind of GB Everdrive to have all the games on your gb
>repainting it
>new rad buttons

Fuck off, retard

>>913922
Best advice.
Don't.
Leave it as is and if it get busted up through wear and tear then patch it and customize it otherwise just buy another thats in poor shape to fix up
>>
>>913979
He's right though. You were probably birthed from your mothers anus
>>
Look into chiptunes stuff.

Easy source for custom shells/backlights/shit like that.

>gifted
That's an adjective, for when someone is well-endowed intellectually or in talents. You're thinking of the past tense of the verb "to give", which looks like this: "gave". It's easy to use in sentences, too. You can try it yourself! "Someone gave me"...
>>
>>914405
No it's not, it's a simple-past.

It has a homophonic homograph that's an adjective, but that not what was used there.

"Gave" and "gifted" have similar, but subtly different meanings: "gifted" connotes that the object was given as a gift to mark an occasion, or as an act of friendship, or through altruism ("he gifted $50,000 to the Red Cross"), whereas "gave" has no connotations, and OP could have "been given" the gameboy to, for instance, settle a debt.

tl;dr: don't be a grammar smartarse unless you actually know your shit.
>>
>>914411
"Gifted" used for "gave" is recently made-up bull for people who think just using the word we already have is somehow beneath them.

I do know my shit but being a smart-arse is more fun than being perfectly and pedantically correct.

Don't

“The friendes that were together met, He gyfted them richely with right good speede.” published c.1560
>"recently" because I am a vampire.

>>913922
Really? A Gameboy? I'm not sure this is a good use of your time.
>>
>>914411
Much "obligated".
>>
>>914462
You think you're being clever, but those two are valid words with different meanings too. "Obliged" connotes a social debt, whereas "obligated" connotes a legal one.

You're obliged to provide your guests refreshments. You're obligated to provide your employees PPE.

This fucking guy... what an asshole

Fuck you

Someday I'll fix it I promise, shoulda used a finer sand paper, with better than dollar a can spray paint, shouldn't have been like 14
>>
>>915778
Do a paint-dip, they're super easy and look good. If you're planning on USING it, get it hacked/homebrewed for all the games, and backlit or it's just kinda unfun to use.
>>
>>915785
I just have tertis on it, any other game I can play on my phone and I don't want to have to replace save batteries
>>

Yeah, leave it as is and don't fuck it up and maybe it will be worth something someday.

The Japanese build things the way they do for specific reasons.
