  • In elementary school my mother bought me a Game Gear for the long bus rides to and from school. It was expensive and awesome looking and outdid the gray-brick Game Boys in every way… except games. 😛

    I remember asking if she could take it back and exchange it for a Game Boy. She could… It’s a happy memory.


    • I had a close cousin who had a Game Gear growing up, I was jealous of him because dayum those games looked good compared to the Game Boy.

      Then I realised there was a reason why his parents only let him play it while plugged into the car charger… People complain about the 3DS battery life but oh boy was the Game Gear a whole new ballpark.
