    I was never all that impressed with the Game Boy library myself. Maybe that's because I don't really have any sentimental attachment to it -- GB was my third portable system, after Lynx and Game Gear. Good Game Boy games were a rarity to me; most of it seemed to be shovelware and bad ports. I usually played my Game Boy games on a Super Game Boy because the screen was just too shitty.

I ended selling a year later which normally would have been an unthinkable sin at that age but the battery life made it useless.
    people complain about battery life all the time, but all you had to do was buy the battery pack. I can't think of any situation where I would run out the battery pack and not be in a position to use an AC or DC adapter. Sure, its a little added mess (which is why I kept everything in a convenient carry case), but its worth it. Shit, Gameboy was boring after 10 minutes, I never would've run out of batteries on it anyway because staring out of the window would've been more fun.

    Sega should have released a smaller Game Gear with a much better battery life around 1994 or so and they could have stayed in longer.

    The original Game Boy would have been dead by 1995 were it not for Pokemon.

    Another thing, Sega games on Game Gear seemed to be just stripped down versions of the Genesis games, whereas Nintendo games on Game Boy were actually original games and not just a re-hash of say, Super Mario World except in pea-soup green with gimped sound.

    I think that they should have done some hardware revisions, I mean, the game gear did take six batteries, but remember people, the original gameboy took four, and that's still quite a bit.

    I think that by the time the Gameboy Pocket came out they could have easily made the technology in the game gear smaller.

    Sonic didn't look the same on the Game Gear while Mario and Kirby and Donkey Kong all looked the same art style as their big brothers Nes and Snes games. I'm not talking about the graphic quality, but I'm talking about the graphics style. Although Treasure's games looked the same on both console and handheld Sega systems.

    At one time, my Game Boy was my most prized possession. I had tons of *good* games for it. But for the life of me, I don't know how the hell I was able to see through that screen, especially with the motion blur

    GameBoy was my first system, and despite the low specs, the graphics still don't look that bad to me, except that it was so easily for the screen to have a glare.

    People say the GameBoy had graphics that were similar to the Atari, but to me GameBoy looks better than Nes.

    the original Sonic looked near identical to the Genesis version, though the remaining Sonic games did look very different (and weren't as fun either). That's why the only Sonic game I really play on Game Gear is the original one. And on that note, IMO Sonic 1 for game gear is one of the best Sonic games ever made. The music was actually composed by the the same guy that did Streets of Rage.

    I though Sonic Triple Trouble was spot-on, and by far the best of the GG Sonics.
