I stumbled across this image that contained some of the classic SEGA Game Gear boxes, the one I had was the one pictured on the right. Notice it has the Genesis Sonic the Hedgehog printed on the screen. I remember as a kid I wondered why that title intro still on the box was completely different from the in-game. (This was before I had a Genesis of course ;) )

Haha, wow. Interesting on the Sonic intro box shot.

I can't find a pic of my GG box anywhere. It was a launch system w/ the glass screen and Columns packed in. I could go dig it out of the attic but, you know, it's in the attic.

Man, I just had a flashback to when I first played Game Gear. I was in a high end dentists office in the mid nineties in the waiting room. I thought it was amazing they had a Game Gear, because nobody I knew (or have known since) ever actually had one.

I played some Spider-Man game. And there was a ninja turtle on the ceiling above the dentist chair.

That's great, I have excellent memories from my Game Gear, specially playing Jurassic Park.

Wanna see the ultimate false advertisemt for game gear.Wow. That's pretty bad. There wasn't a single shot from an actual Game Gear in that. I would've been PISSED.

I mean there's far worse LCD dedicated type games out there, but that ad. :lol:

Also, does anyone know if that music is based on anything actually in 3D blast, or is it something else? (I seem to recall hearing it once, but I could never find it again in the sound test) Or maybe Sonic 3 rather as that music was the same as used for the preceding sonic 3 tiger handheld.

Before the launch of Game.com I knew anything from Tiger Electronics back then was unplayable garbage.
