    Default Which Is The Best Game Gear 'Launch Title'?

    Thanks to these Usenet posts and USPTO listings (here, here, and here) we can see what was available for the Game Gear in April of 1991. Which game do you prefer?

    Definitely Castle of Illusion, it's a solid platformer that's pretty much just as good at it's 16-bit brother. Even though it may be a Master System port, it's still quite a solid game, something the Game Gear doesn't really have a lot of.

    I played a ton of Dragon Crystal but I cant say its a great game. It had really nice graphics but it was a bit weird. I dont think I ever finished it and wasnt sure how to.

    Castle of Illusion.

    If the launch window we're using was wide enough to include Revenge of Drancon, I'd choose that.

    You're right, but I don't have clearance to edit the poll. If one of 'the mods' would be so kind as to add 'Revenge of Drancon' to the poll, that would be much appreciated!

    If we're including "launch window" then Shinobi is my choice by far. As for the ones in the poll, I'm tempted to pick Castle of Illusion like most people but the SMS one is slightly better. Columns, on the other hand, has enhanced graphics on GG over the SMS.

    Considering that the Japanese version was released on April 26, I'm not sure that it made it here during April.

    True, although launch window can mean the first few months depending on who you ask.

    Psychic World is a pretty good game. It's one of the better platformers on the system, and I like how it plays differently from so many other GG platformers, way too many of them aren't that great...

    Castle of Illusion.

    It was the best early game to show of the system against a GB anyway. It had great graphics and animation and it was a solid game too, for many people this is a better game than the Genesis version.
