Sega Game Gear

Recommended Posts

I have a Game Gear and a boxload of games. I actually had one before I ever owned any kind of Game Boy. IMO a good rechargable battery pack is a must...mine saved me who knows how many batteries. Some of the better games were:

-of course, the Sonic games (not sure exactly how many or all the titles)

-Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine is a good Tetris-style puzzler,

-Bubble Bobble...mmmm Bubble Bobble. You know what I'm talkin' about! ;)

-Battletoads

-I remember playing a good bit of Ecco, but iirc it uses the annoying "write down a code to resume your game" mechanism

-Shaq Fu. Okay, I'm lying. :lol:

-Marble Madness

N64 recommendations have been split to thier own threads. Please continue to help Secret spend more money there.

 

Sweet, thanks! :D

 

Well, you basically bought one when you bought the GameGear, so why duplicate it

 

I dunno, I kinda look at the GameGear as being closer to the Genesis than the Master System I guess with games like Sonic, Strider, etc. But there are a slim few Master System games I wouldn't mind sampling, and it sure is better getting a $10 plug-in for the Game Gear than a whole other bulky (and in the Master System's case, pretty darn ugly) system.

You shouldn't ;) The Game Gear uses the same CPU as the Master System (the Z80 at 3.58 mhz). Biggest difference besides resolution and ram is the Game Gear was capable of displaying 4096 colors as opposed to the Master Systems' 256.

Oh, I see! I'm going to show my ignorance and admit I didn't even know there was a Master System version of Sonic. I thought the Genesis version was the first one. :D

It was... ;)

 

After the success of the Megadrive/Genesis version, Sega made a Master System one for all the people who couldn't afford to upgrade. It (like every other Sonic game ever) suffers from inferior level design, and the graphics obviously aren't as good, but its worth playing in its own right.

VERY interesting...well, you learn something new every day! :P

Heheh...so mine arrived in the mail today. Yeah, it is pretty large, but I am impressed with it nonetheless. Nice build quality, the TV tuner works pretty well, now I just need to pick up a few more games for it!

 

Hah...and after my semi-badmouthing of the Nomad, I snagged one on Ebay tonight for $50 so that is a pretty killer deal.
