Influencer and occasional boxer Logan Paul recently boasted on TikTok about his venture to make a light table. Of course, making an ordinary table is not interesting to anyone on the Internet, so Paul decided to "install" 15 Game Boy Color consoles on his desk.
The idea of a table where you can play different games over Game Boy may sound good to you, but Logan Paul didn’t have that idea. Instead, the brackets were permanently fixed to the table by pouring epoxy resin. In translation, he made the consoles incomparable decorations.

His idea did not sit well with the community of fans of old consoles. Fans of Nintendo consoles told Logan that he had contributed to the destruction of gamer history.
Although it is not known whether the disputed Game Boy consoles were in good condition most commentators point out that the project could have been realized by Paul using glass frames as this would not have destroyed the consoles some of which were produced in limited quantities.
Either way, Paul probably doesn’t get too tired of the criticism he’s received. Negative reactions to his project ultimately benefit him, because as the saying goes: even negative publicity is sometimes better than no publicity at all.
