These 3 consoles were when handheld gaming was a thing I would look forward to all the time. Recent years, it's been more about gimmicks, ports, and power than actual game experiences. The modern handheld age would be nothing without each of these 3 systems, one of which was the most pwoerful handheld for around 13 years. I still collect games for these quite a bit. The ignorance that they are irrelevant makes it so that I don't have to pay high price for even rare games.They also had the best competitive ads.

I still play Game Boy games via my GBA-SP or Game Boy Player because they just look better that way, and no eating through batteries.

I very rarely pull out my Game Gear anymore simply because I never seem to come across Game Gear games anymore.

And I've never owned a Lynx, but it is high on my wishlist.

Yes, I still play all three regularly. Lynx has a nice homebrew scene and I never tire of Shinobi II: The Silent Fury on Game Gear. Game Boy speaks for itself. I have been playing Rockman World 1-5 (the Mega Man Game Boy titles).

A recommend a Lynx to everyone I see, because it is highly underrates and tons of powerful games. I also don't think I have mentioned strongly enough how powerful that machine is, gave home consoles a run for its money.

I'm still collecting games for the Game Gear and hope to have a complete collection one day. I play Fray: Shugyouhen at the moment, and I want to try my recent purchases, Gunstar HEroes and Road Rash.

Probably just needs new capacitors. It's not terribly difficult if you can solder. Atari and SEGA both used very cheap capacitors in their systems, and especially in the earliest ones shipped. Nintendo had purchased most of the higher end ones of the day for use in the Game Boy.

Nope, use them to test games and see if they still work sometimes though. I do still have my original fat game boy and game gear ( game gear has some issues, image and sound not so good).

I tend to start up my handheld collection from time to time, but lately I've been more into the Nomand and the PC Engine GT.
