    That being said, Game Gear games have terrible resolution, better off playing the Master System alternatives for the most part, since TecToy ported every worthwhile GG game to the Master System.
    Tec Toy didn't come close but fans have in recent years. The resolution doesn't make a difference though. The assets in all but a handful of games were made the same as they are for SMS. Tec Toy didn't redraw everything, they only extended the viewing area. The pixelart remains the same, just like all those Genesis games with frames and borders.

    There's no reason to play classic portable games on their original screens other than nostalgia. If you play Game Gear games on a 27" TV it's like a fullscreen 20" TV.

    The extended area makes the games easier to play. Try any platformer where you can barely see the enemies or jumps ahead of you. The best games on GG (or GB/GBC) tend to be those where the artwork and levels were redesigned for the smaller screen versus using the same assets as the console version.

    By the way -- I'm now getting ads for this thing on Facebook, so it's clearly being marketed for Americans. The comments were predictable, "WTF is this, a Game Gear for ants", "only four games?", "no SD slot?" etc. Nobody seems to understand what Sega was going for.

    According to this Famitsu interview that was just posted Sega was originally considering 1 game per color variation for the Game Gear Micro.
    Afterward, they decided to expand the number of games per variation. But they felt like it was unreasonable, so they decided to expand it to 3 games per Game Gear Micro. Then they decided to expand it further, and add another color variation, making it 4 and 4.
    LOL

    Should have been one unit with all 16 games and removable face plates, ala GB Micro. Not sure if anyone suggested this earlier in the thread.

    you'd make less money with it and would be less collectible

    All five SKUs are currently #1-5 in sales for mini consoles on Amazon Japan, so it seems Sega knows the market better than the comment section outrage mob... again.

    Sega's Yosuke Okunari also said on Twitter that initial sales were so good that Sega will consider doing more stuff like this.

    Meanwhile, the "comment section outrage mob" will continue to be outraged that Sega does not cater to their every whim. It's 2020, just buy an RG 350 if you want to play a well-designed handheld with every retro game ever on it.

    The angry mob will keep finding excuses to get angry until they die of old age.

    Though I do admit that Sega was quite daring by pricing them at $46 each, considering what each of these are on their own.

    I'm happy they're making money on this but I can hardly call it a console. Actually it's good if a lot of people buy it, maybe that will prompt Sega to build other hardware.

    To be frank...not too many Game Gear exclusives that are worth playing in 2020. Off the top of my head:

    Ronald McDonald in Magical World
    GG Aleste
    GG Aleste II
    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
    Tails Adventure

    Madou Monogatari II
    Madou Monogatari III

    Drop Zone
    Griffon
    Magical Taruruto kun
    Tail's Sky Patrol
    I already mentioned GG Aleste I and II.

    Better versions exist on other platforms of these games:

    Shining Force I
    Shining Force II
    Galaga '91
    Fantasy Zone
    Lunar Magical School
    Dropzone - (See: Defender, Stargate/Defender II)

    Games that arent great:
    Tails Sky Patrol


    Every other game you mentioned is a Japanese RPG save for Halley Wars and Godzilla, some of which havent even received fan translations yet. Personally I think there is under fifteen exclusive games total on the Game Gear that are really worth playing in 2020.

    So if we expanded the list out a little bit. These are probably the only must plays on the Game Gear

    GG Aleste
    GG Aleste II
    Halley Wars
    Royal Stone
    Godzilla
    Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
    Tails Adventure
    Shining Force Gaiden: Final Conflict

    Then GG Exclusives that are good:
    Legend of Illusion
    Land of Illusion
    Ronald McDonald in Magical World
    Eternal Legend
    Crystal Warriors
    Moldorian

    Not a single mention of the two GG Shinobi games? Seriously?

    Isn't "worth playing" really, really subjective?

    I'm sure more than a few of us here enjoy certain games that many would find not worth playing.
