  1. I bought one, thought it was the coolest thing in the world. I beat sonic. Realized no one rented portable games and i didnt have money to buy more on the reg. Returned it and got a genesis instead. :/


    also yeah… 6 double AAs last like an hour.

  2. Juste remember Battery life of this thing…

    I must laf when i hear people complaining about Iihone Battery life… Pffeeee in my time… we switched Batteries every 3 hours!

  3. I remember hauling my old GameBoy case around like a briefcase. Those coins weren’t going to collect themselves after all!

  4. Man, playing Shining Force 2 on the Gamegear got me through so many road trips. Had to order it from the Funco catalog! My rechargeable battery pack was this beast you fastened to the bottom of the system. Ran the length of the system and doubled the weight, but saved so many batteries. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I won’t judge for using the game genie on G Loc. That game was tough.

  5. HO-LEE-COW!

    That’s like finding the Holy Grail!

    I also have that X-Men game!

    Sadly my Game Gear’s screen and speaker are toast, but I have fond memories of it.

  6. My son just downloaded the latest sonic the hedgehog game, it has the same sound bytes as the original. I have been having major nostalgia the last 2 days. You’re not helping.

    But sweet find none the less!

  7. This was my first console ever. I loved it.

    Sadly seems like I burned it using the power cable from a Sega Genesis when I was a kid and didn’t know better. Long time gone now.

  8. Unfortunately, they are all defective. They used faulty capacitors and most of them fail. When they do they need to get recapped and that usually fixes the problem, but it involves soldering work.

  9. Sonic and xmen were easily my favorite games on that system. That thing ate through batteries like crazy though
