I know a few of us TTers are into retro gaming, but does anyone else like Neo Geo Pocket?

 

I was at Half Priced Books the other day and managed to find a really nice condition 2nd wave pearl blue pocket color for a good price (along with some games)!

Games I have so far are Faselei (JP), Sonic Pocket Adventures, Puzzle Bobble Mini! and Metal Slug: 1st Mission.

 

If you don't like/know about Neo Geo Pocket, what is your favorite retro system/games?

 

Besides the NGPC, I really like SEGA GameGear! c:

I never played one, but I have emulated the system. It's so nice for the retro days... I love retro systems. Sonic always has been a favorite Sega game... I grew up with Sonic.

I played a NGPC when I was little, with the King of Fighters game. I really loved the cute and fastpaced style of it, and it had a really cool clicky joystick!

The Game Gear is a similar situation for me, I never owned one, but have played one and loved the games for it, mainly Columns and the Sonic games!

Yeah, emulating saves you a lot of money and it gives you a chance to experience the rare titles. x3 I really love retro systems, too, but I really love owning the physical games and systems. ;3; (wastes a ton of my money, sadly) I grew up with Sonic, too, it was a great series for so long! <3

I know, it's crazy @_@; I already owned one of the first wave neo geo pocket colors, and it cost me like $99 ><;; Needless to say, it was bittersweet to find this one so cheap. ;~;
