I bought it a month or two ago, and because of the clamshell design the screen is in perfect condition, no scratches at all.I bought Super Mario Kart Advance with it at the time, but the games that I have really played since getting it are all of my old gameboy and gameboy colour games. Don't get me wrong, I have always been big on playing these games on my game boy colour, but was finding it harder and harder to play because of the glare and lack of backlight (no idea how I used to play all the time). With the added advantage of the backlight, the SP has created a bit of a gameboy renaissance in my life.I have started purchasing some of the titles I never owned (Which are all cheap), and I am getting so much fun, enjoyment and plenty of hours of gaming on the cheap, whilst the backlight means I can go back and replay my old favourites (fortunately these all seem to have save files, so they are perfect for a level here or there).The games that I have are:Super Mario LandSuper Mario Land 2Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3Donkey Kong LandDonkey Kong Land 3Wario Land 3Donkey KongAdventure IslandDr. MarioKid Icarus: Of Myths and MonstersGameboy GalleryPokemon BluePokemon SilverLegend of Zelda: Oracle of AgesCurrently bidding on:Donkey Kong Land 2BattletoadsLinks Awakening DXAre there are any other gems that I am missing out on?Hell yes! Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge TMNT: Fall of the Foot ClanKirby's DreamlandTMNT II: Back from the SewersWario Land 2 - Have it, but i have yet to play it....Apperantly it's the weakest of the WL titlesKirby's Dreamland 2 - Haven't played this one either, but it looks better than the originalTMNT III: Radical Rescue! - I need this one, people seem to love it as it has a 'Metroid' spin to it.Mega Man V - Supposably the best Portable GB Mega Man AND it's actually an original game.Contra: Operation C - Also in my collection, but i haven't given it a go yet.As for the TMNT games, if you grew up with TMNT and were a fan of the beatem' up gameplay than you'll get a kick out of the first 2 GB games. Not quite as awesome as TMNT II and IV for the Arcade, Nes and Snes, but for portables they're actually pretty stellar. The original is pretty primative though, and incredibly easy.
