    bought a sega game gear

    www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sega_Game_Gear

    very scratched up but does what it's supposed to. three games: Bugs Bunny in double trouble, sonic 1 and 2, with original plastic cases for the games.

    $30 canadian for all, no tax. pricey but that's only three hours minimum wage here. and sonic kicks butt

    I'm posting this hoping some people know more about it than i do. what are the good games for it, and which games suffer the most from poor lighting? and just how bad is the tv antenna picture quality, in case i want to watch sports on the go?

    I'll bring it to a coffee shop just so some kid can go "hey look at that really old psp!" lol

    Its a ok price for one and you got two of the main good games on it.
    What you need most of all is a rechargeable battery pack.
    The Game Gear drains battery's in about a hour. It can be played off the mains via a Mega Drive (not 2) power pack.

    Games wise I link to this nice site
    http://vsrecommendedgames.wikia.com/...Gear#Game_Gear
    You can get a Master System converter for it to play them games on the go, but be warned games with loads of text are hard to play via that (Ultima IV is a big offender)

    The TV tuner is ok. For the time it was great. These days its a bit arsey (and don't work in the UK anymore), but one handy little thing is you can make a areal lead for it so you can connect anything that uses the aerial socket on it

    it was meant to be competition for the game boy, but the size, the poor lighting, the battery life, and especially at the time the price kept it from being sucessful. i only bought it as an odd collector's item, although sonic is very fun.

    that's a matter of opinion really, i had to position gg just right to view sonic and it was annoying enough for me. i don't have to worry much about direct sunlight in newfoundland though...

    Im Looking on Ebay now at a Limited Edition Gamegear with 8 games Charger and Carry Case for $19.50.

    i think they Over Priced you. a Gamegear isn't Rare at all and it only worth $10 and the games are worth $4 each.
