Our first pass hasn't revealed much other than the Xbox doesn't get much respect here, losing both the Xbone and original (only the 360 survived.) The other eliminations were almost entirely the weird off-brand consoles.

I'll run 7 groups of 4 and 1 group of 5, halving the number down to 16. Again, match ups are entirely random.

Vote for 2 to advance.

In terms of pure hours of enjoyment I probably got more out of the CD-i by proxy than either the SMS or Game Gear.

But I have to vote Game Gear because I'm just about its only defender here. Full disclosure: When I got the thing, I was also given a six hour Nyko battery pack to go with it, so I never had to deal with the constant power anxiety that most GG owners did...

my cousins had a Game Gear and it was bigger than my gameboy so that meant it was better. I think I played a sonic game on it for a few minutes.

no one vote for GBA until we go back in time and add the SP to the poll because they're DIFFERENT MOM

My GBA needed to be played directly under a desk lamp with a magnifying lens attachment and that's the way we LIKED it, sonny.

playing Link's Awakening by the headlights of the cars behind us was a good part of both my nostalgia for it and my cataracts

I was super into game gear Shinobi and Columns, and never picked up a single Sonic game for it. That's pretty much the extent of my GG memories, but I look back on the dumb thing fondly.

Sega CD for having the sheer guts to do it, even if most games were pioneer crap.

POWERFUL LEGS! POWERFUL LEGS! POWERFUL LEGS TO HELP IT SWIM!

Also the Wii's library is interesting and creative and full of strange games that make it interesting to dive back into.

the psp, pre smartphone, was a goddamn revelation to me. it was pretty shitty at most of the jailbroken extracurricular things it COULD do, but man, it was an e-reader, a digital manga reader, a video player, a web browser, a podcast/mp3 player, and a handheld emulator. who cares that i only ever owned two UMDs (three if you counted the pack in UMD of SPIDER-MANS 2), that thing went with me everywhere until the iphone became a big deal.
