The Virtual Boy was not a commercial success and was discontinued less than a year after its release. Some of the reasons for its lack of success include the high price, limited game library, and the discomfort caused by prolonged use of the headset.

Despite its short lifespan, the Virtual Boy did have a number of unique games and features that made it stand out from other consoles of the time. Some of the most notable games on the Virtual Boy included "Mario's Tennis," "Teleroboxer," and "Virtual Boy Wario Land."

The Virtual Boy is also notable for its unique design, with a tabletop stand that allowed the console to be used in a seated position, and a controller that featured two sets of directional pads and buttons. The console's red and black graphics were designed to create the illusion of depth, but many users found them to be difficult to see and potentially harmful to their eyes.

Despite its lack of commercial success, the Virtual Boy remains a unique and interesting part of Nintendo's history, and its design and features have influenced the development of later virtual reality technologies.
