These sort of threads often pan out better when titled "Your favourite...".

By naming them "The best..." it often serves to inspire a debate of a different nature. Just saying.

I picked Gamegear, even though it is a rehash of SMS technology (and Gameboy is NES rehash too I guess) because it is the only one of the original 3 with a decent screen AND decent controls.

The problem for me with ALL versions of the Gameboy was the screen, the GBA has some fantastic arcade games but the screen was unusable. Maybe there is one with a backlight but as it stands I can't get on with the screen of the Lynx or original Gameboy.

Of course for me today it would have to be a PC-Engine LT....I don't like wearing glasses to play games on tiny screens and there are phones with 7" screens today so you can't say the screen is too big :P

Interested why you picked that over the Lynx though?
