The Top Retro Handheld Consoles worth collecting
January 24, 2019
The Game Boy by Nintendo was an industry changer in 1989. 30 years later, it's still an interesting gaming device worth hanging on to. Like with anything that has major success, competition is always on the horizon, (Iphone, Samsung). Many variations of the Game Boy have been released, including 3d versions, but for this article I will touch bases on the retro generation, pre-2000,
Sega Game Gear
Neo Geo Pocket Color (Blue Camouflage shown)
Game Boy Original
Game Boy Color
There are many other consoles out there, but I chose these particular ones by the popularity of the games. Pokemon, Sonic, Super Mario are just three of the most common games that are the funnest games to play and the ones everyone remember most. The Game Boy Original can be tied to Tetris as it's most memorable. The Nomad is going to allow you to play all your Sega Genesis games which is nice not to need to buy more games.
Your collection of consoles will vary depending on your own likes and history gaming. Some consoles like the Neo Geo Pocket are rare and out of the ordinary.
