I was reading another thread and this question popped into my head. There has been many handheld gaming consoles but which one was the best in your eyes? I personally loved the GBC. i could play that thing all day long. In the poll i will put what I think are the more popular ones.

Gameboy Colour.

It's like a normal Gameboy... But with colour!

The GBC was so good :'D So many days spent on it. Especially Pokemon Red. <3

I too must vote for the Gameboy Colour. First handheld game console I ever had... and I've still got it! :)

My PSP 3000 has that "Home screen keeps popping up" error, so I don't play on that much anymore

The DS's library > all other handheld gaming libraries

That said, with the eShop and Virtual Console making so many generations of awesome games available on one handy system, I can sort of see the 3DS becoming my all-time fave.

I think the PSP is awesome, but I can't get over the nostalgia of the Game Boy Color. I still have mine, and I still occasionally bust it out for some Pokemon, Zelda: Link's Awakening, or Mario Golf! Great times :')

I'm not big into handheld games, yet I had a GBC and played the fuck out of it as a kid. So I'm going on that.

Best handheld game is obviously Pokemon.

But since it's for every Nintendo console I couldnt choose

I havent played on all of these but from this list:-

PSP i hated worthless piece of rubbish.

DS was ok but was lacking.

And the Gameboy Colour was a real class gaming console Zelda and Pokemon true classics back in the day

The brain says DS, but the heart says Game Gear.

As a curio, I'd love to build my own handheld system on an arduino board as a hobby someday

I remember the Game Gear. Fun line of games but it destroyed batteries in about 2 hours.

Or mine did :S

The only things I remember about the game gear was there was a pretty decent version of Sonic for it, and the TV advert where there was a dog that chose the game gear over the game boy. I always remember thinking that stupid dog made the wrong choice. I was right!!! lol SEGA!! :D

BTW Vegas airbourne? Why the fuck do you have the Atari Lynx in this list? Who ever played that shite? :p

Why is the N-Gage a poll option?

My one ate through batteries crazy fast too, like a fat cunt at a buffet of obesity genes. The DC adapter came in mental handy though.

Im addicted to the DS and Im waiting for some more catalogue for the 3DS, but my hands down choice will be GBA as I had a ball with the GBA emulators and roms..

My favourite 'handheld' is my... NO!

But srsly, I've never had any handheld, portable console, unless you count a wee plasticky thing that only had one game on it, a game like Tetris, NOT Tetris, LIKE Tetris, on it. But when I was a youngling, my mate had a Gamegear, and he had Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers for it, and I used to go round to his house a lot and play it, it was AWESOME! So I vote for that.

I love beating up Puttys!!!
