I thought we did do this before but maybe not!

Anyway the answer is obvious!

No rules were set so it stands lol..

We could be pedantic and suggest all handhelds are mere offspring of previous consoles :113:

I picked Gameboy last time and I'm sticking with it!
Sure the graphics aren't the best, but the games were fun and I have great memories playing mine as a kid  :)

Is the N-Gage a valid choice as a retro handheld? It was released in 2003... it's newer than the GBA.

Can't believe GBA is not listed? Easily wins imo for the sheer amount of great games.

I just found this old advert that somewhat incredulously promoted the Game Boy on the basis of its graphics -

Now this is more like it...

It is now! Change your vote!  :4:

The PC Engine GT/Turbo Express, Sega Nomad and the like are later released handheld versions of home consoles and should not count in a dedicated handheld poll, doesn't make sense.
