Sega Game Gear Must Have Games
« on: February 17, 2012, 19:19:16 PM »
I had a couple of friends with one of these when I was at school and owned one myself more recently for about 6 months but despite my love for Sega the machine did nothing but disappoint me. Despite that here are my top 10 games for the handheld in no order.

GG Shinobi

I remember Woody Pop.  Used to love that game.

On another note I've heard Primal Rage holds up very well on the Game Gear.

I downloaded GG Shinobi from the 3DS eshop today. This was my favourite Game Gear game from when I originally owned the console, with this in mind I was curious to see how it held up; I was very impressed.

The virtual console emulation  on the 3DS is an improvement over its Wii counterpart too, with some nice additional options. I really enjoyed playing Shinobi with the Game Gear border on and blur option on.

Nice list! Castle of Illusion, Road Rash and Micro Machines really look like standout titles.

Huh huh. Woody. Huh huh. Pop.

For serious, though, if you can only get one Sonic game on the Game Gear, make sure damn sure it's Triple Trouble. The previous GG Sonic games had their own issues, but this game's so far improved I'd say it's one of the best games on the system. There's tons of entirely new powerups, some new special stages complete with secret boss fights, and some of the best music you'll hear on the Game Gear.

It does have nice sounds. I agree at least with the first Sonic. That game made me jump off the Game Gear boat.

I think Sonic 1 and 2 for the GG have about the best game music ever, just behind the Katamari Damacy series. The tunes sounded better than on the Megadrive.

Excellent  :111:
Especially for Fatal Fury Special and Ristar, which are not the most famous ones on Game Gear but really awesome...

Whats the score with the GG version of Tails Adventure ?

I have the Pal version and it appears to be very rare as I cant find another anywhere.
Everything in my collection must be boxed and complete. Nothing else will do \":)\"

I'm not a big Sonic fan by any stretch of the imagination, but I absolutely ADORE the first Sonic on Game Gear. One of the best soundtracks EVER, hands down. Maybe I like it so much as it's closer to Super Mario than Sonic? I'm a HUGE Mario fan.

I don't care much for the Sonic games on Genesis. I mean, they're good, but not superb. Sonic 1 on Game Gear (and Master System, though I prefer the Game Gear release as it's just a tad more forgiving) is truly fantastic in my opinion.

I haven't played much Game Gear. My only exposure to it has been Sonic and Mean Bean Machine on the 3DS Virtual Console, but I would like to pick one up someday. Before that, however, I think I need me a Model 1 Genesis with the Power Base Converter. Genesises at my local game dealer are only about 30 bucks a pop and I believe they come with a game (Sonic 1 or Altered Beast probably) as well. The Power Base Converter is more expensive!

I'm not a big Sega fanboy, and I've only played GG, Genesis, and Master System before and some of their newer games like JSRF on non-Sega platforms. I'm much more of a Nintendo guy. I like the Genesis for what it is and I think it has a pretty solid library but compared to the Super Nintendo? Come on now. It's no contest. The Genesis doesn't have Super Mario World and Super Metroid.
