Released in 1995, Nintendo's Virtual Boy was the company's first foray into virtual reality gaming. The wonky all-red visor unit never really took off, but it presaged the coming of 3-D gaming that is now industry standard. We remember playing Mario's Tennis, and the accompanying warning to play only for short periods of time so as to give your eyes some time to rest. The only place we've ever seen one of these bad boys for sale is at Game Over Videogames (we can't guarantee the reality of a Virtual Boy in stock) – Austin's retail monument to video games past and present.
