    GOAT
    (greatest of all time)​

    The second tier is multiple choice so you can show love to more than one of the lightweights, but the top tier is one vote only.

    NINTENDO DS HAS BEEN INTENTIONALLY LEFT OUT OF THIS POLL


    now lets all concede the fact that if it was an option it would win overwhelmingly b/c this forum is mostly populated by people who have only played a DS, so rather than include it and getting a bullshit answer, I decided to leave it out.


    If you have any systems you would like to be added to the second tier just post them in this thread and they will be added.

    I voted for Game Gear(so awesome) and Game.com (way ahead of it's time).

    GBA and Turbo Express. Especially the GBA SP had a lot of fun with that system [​IMG]

    You shouldn't have removed DS. Cause I didn't like any of these.
    I'm a SONY hater not to mention :/
    So I had to pick GBA.

    Voted GBC but had to vote TurboExpress for fan favourite. Personally I feel that fan favourites should have included Atari Lynx & Neo Geo Pocket seeing that they didn't have that many releases. NGP being the one I had chosen.

    Game.Com was the worst thin I had the mispleasure of every playing! It had IDEAS ahead of their time but these ideas were so poorly implemented that they made the handheld a bigger piece of shit than what it would have been. The screen is the worst handheld screens I've ever seen.

    I felt the need to buff up the top tier with non Nintendo consoles, so they had to go into the top b/c when they came out they were genuine competition for Ninty.

    In defense of the Game.com display, it was lit and touch and that puts it ahead of all the handhelds of the time except GG.

    I would have voted GBA even if NDS was on the list. I picked Dingoo for the second one, even though I've never played it. But I've never even heard of the other consoles. Probably the generation gap.

    Maybe because I was pretty young, but as far as I can remember, the GBA was mind-blowingly epic. The NDS is obviously superior to the GBA as far as graphics, sound, or functionality are concerned. But for some reason, games used to be so much more fun when I was younger. I used to play it all the time, at night, using those hugeass attachable backlights, under the blanket. Nowadays, I hardly touch my NDS. It's probably been months, sitting there collecting dust.

    AFAIC, GBA IS GOAT.

    I had a feeling Game Boy Color and Advance would fight it out for top spot, but the real race here is for the second tier. Suprised about the support for TurboExpress and Nomad, come on Game.com!

    GBA SP -- You have access to the GB, GBC and GBA libraries all in a single console. Total win. Turboexpress for 2nd tier hands down. Being able to buy a game for my console and then playing the same game on my handheld? Win. Kids that owned a Turboexpress were practically worshipped when I was little.

    Playing Mario Kart on SP wasn't as good as on the original or on the Micro, as were some other games. Was excellent playing GB/GBC titles though.

    I think what the gay guy is saying is that he prefers a wide control grip with the screen in the middle, I would have to agree. Prob. why I voted Game Gear and Game.com

    This guy was the fucking king!
    Plus, if Lance used a Full Restore, you could chuck it at the wall and then resume playing.

    GBA and GBC for first and second, respectively.
    Possibly Game Gear for third.

    GBA simply because of Golden Sun, Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga and various others.

    Original Game Boy, and Wonderswan.

    I remember in my younger days playing Battle Arena Toshinden, and Pokemon Red. . . those were the days. [​IMG]

    Well, if I can't say DS then the only choice after that is PSP.

    NDS FTW! [​IMG]

    More seriously, I'd say the Gameboy. Without that we wouldn't have the DS(among other things...), and none of us want that. Right? [​IMG]
    For modern handhelds, the PSP. There's a surprisingly large library of good games for it.
