I really liked the game gear. It ate batteries like Sally Struthers eats pie, but I preferred the games much more than the Game Boy's stuff. Of course, I'm an old Sega man. _________________ SJS- Rest in Peace, Brother
I do regret owning the Atari Lynx, (The only Atari console i've ever owned) and Sega Game Gear. At least i had a Game Boy, too. These days, i don't bother with hand held consoles. _________________ If it's got wings, i can crash it!

Let's now add to the list the Nokia QD. When they made the first one, you had to dismantle it to change cartridges and yo looked like a dork talking on the phone part! _________________ Let's Croak some Toad!-Deadeye Duck
I'm surprised that noone mention game.COM. Wasn't it the first handheld system to use a touchscreen? Most of the games I saw for it were really watered down ports or a few novelitey games (Lights Out anyone?).
I actually liked emulating the Neo Geo Pocket Color, as there are a few good games for it. Actually I liked it to the point of ordering one off of Amazon.
Another one I remember was the TurboGrafix Express. Looked interesting... _________________ I'll think of something witty to say sometime...
I had a Neo-Geo pocket (I bought it 2nd hand) and it came a few good games. Metal Slug, Sonic and King Of Fighters were fantastic. Sadly as the machine was on the wane getting new games for it was a bit of a challenge for me.
