Re: 3 Favorite Handhelds along with 3 favorite games

Game Gear
Shinobi 1 & 2- Any time I get a chance to pimp this game and its sequel I take it. Unique to the Game Gear and can hold their own against most (all?) Shinobi games.

Solitaire Poker-Yes it's true! This was a random gift one Christmas and I played the hell out of it. Pretty much what it says: a combination of solitaire and poker. Still need to find a copy for my current collection......

3DS (Excuse the noobishness)
Project X Zone-Not the best game technically but I love it anyways for all the nostalgic trappings

Fire Emblem: Awakening-Great depth and I love strategy games

DS (Noobie here as well)
Hotel Dusk-I'm waiting for this game to shoot up the price charts. Seems like everyone likes it. Maybe it's just in large supply.

GBA
Advance Wars-I lapped it up like a starving cat

I've spoken of my love for handhelds quite frequently on the boards. These days I favor them over home consoles. I regularly play even the more "obscure" ones like the Game Gear, Lynx, WonderSwan Color, Neo Geo Pocket Color, Virtual Boy, and yes, even the LeapFrog Didj. I'm always on the hunt for a cheap N-Gage too.

Now if I had to whittle my collection down to three handhelds they would be the Game Boy Advance SP, 3DS, and PSP. The GBA SP and 3DS are especially strong due to their backwards compatibility. GBA SP allows play of virtually anything with the "Game Boy" moniker, while the 3DS also plays DS games. The PSP has an incredible library and at this point I doubt that the Vita will ever overshadow it (also a shame that the Vita can't play physical PSP games).

As as for my three favorite handheld game libraries, that would be the original Game Boy, DS, and PSP. My top three...

Game Boy
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
Final Fantasy Adventure
Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins

DS
Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies
Radiant Historia
Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes

PSP
Ys Seven
Jeanne D'Arc
Phantasy Star Portable

Note that I only listed original games developed for the systems in question. No ports / remakes. Otherwise Ys I & II would end up on both the DS and PSP list which seems a bit redundant and obnoxious.

Gameboy Advance SP(it ran everything)
-Tetris GB (This was the game in my GB and GBC slot until the next game on the list)
-Mario Golf GBC (Dethroned Tetris in college, played it like 100hours or something)
-DOOM2? (Never had a clear favorite)

Sony PSP
I hate to say I don't remember what were my 3 favorites. I did put a lot of time on Macross (import), God of War CoO, and FF7 Crisis Core(like far more than FF7.)

Sega Game Gear (I'd put nomad but that's cheating.) :)
Same problem, haven't had it since a decade ago. I played the hell out of Columns, Aerial Assault, and Sonic 2 though but there were far more.

It's too hard to name just 3 on anything really here as I can't think of just 3 games that alone would define any of those fairly. Old GB had FF Adventure, Super Mario Land 1 and 2, Zelda Links Awakening+DX, and then the GBC had some crazy stuff like Warlocked and Dragon's Lair an arcade conversion that was oddly accurate, Revelations the Demon Slayer and others. GBA I couldn't even make a list under 10 games too as with the others. :)
