    Don't blame you. I don't even know how they can call it a handheld. Can't remember what version of lynx I have but you can't even put batteries in the back. The lynx is that big, its the handheld for a giant [​IMG]

    I bought it when it first came out. I loved it. The games were for the most part pathetic, but there were some good ones, like Slimeworld, Klax, Gates of Zendocon, Shanghai and off course California Games.

    My dad was addicted to the system (Lynx I)and totally fucked up the system after dropping it several times and from the continuous playing. He was addicted to Shanghai. So when it completely broke down I got him another one (Lynx II) and after ten years or so he still plays it almost every day. Can you believe it??

    If there were more people like my dad this system would have beat every Xbox and Playstation out there [​IMG]

    I have a Lynx II, but--sadly--not that many games. I liked Xybots and California Games though. [​IMG] Battery life is a flaw although the GameGear wasn't much better when it comes to this.

    Yeah, my dad was obsessed with it. He was also obsessed with the GB, Genesis and GBC. He bought something like 200+ games, and just recently he hops into my room and says guess what, im like what, he goes just downloaded every single GB, GBC and Sega Genesis rom. Im like haha lol. He still enjoys playing my DS [​IMG] . And we recently went to a 50+ people lan and played CoD 4 and Quake 3. Man that was epic.

    I've got one, but I never did have many games for it:
    Blue Lightning
    California Games
    Electrocop
    [EDIT=few more]
    Xenophobe IIRC
    Warbirds
    [/EDIT]
    and a couple of other IIRC.

    Haven't played it in years, and am not sure where it's at, ATM.

    It's the original LARGE one with the screen that scratched easily, BTW.
