Sega GAME GEAR Buying Guide & Fun Games




The Sega Game Gear is an 8-bit handheld game console that competed with the Nintendo Game Boy & Atari Lynx, but stood on its own with a backlit color display and great accessories. Metal Jesus & Kinsey help beginning Game Gear collectors with the pros and cons of the system, what problems to look out for, modding the screen for better displays, fun accessories, collectable color variants and some games you should buy Day 1.

    I had the bolt-on official nicad battery pack. It saved me a TON of cash over the years on batteries, and you could even charge and play at the same time! You can't use it at the same time as a master gear, though… and it's not worth refurbishing it with newer nicads. Today you'd be better off just slapping in a set of good NiMH batteries and calling it a day – especially if you've got one modded with a lower-draw newer-tech LCD.

    Battery time was the only con. I could never tell what was on the screen on a Nintendo Gameboy and had too many bad games. GameGear was like a portable Master System and had a much better screen than you would expect for its time. It had a cool selection of games also. I was always impressed how good they were.

    My parents got me a Game Gear when I was about 5-6. I liked it but wanted a Game Boy instead. So much Solitaire Poker on long road trips!

    I have a recapped original GG and recently purchased a refurbished blue McWill edition and yes it is way better than the stock screen. I agree Devilish is also a good game rare too!

    Yes very similar to Master System tech. But Game Gear was faster and had more colors in games with stereo sound , more on par with the big Daddy Genesis

    Game gear was so much better than gameboy, it’s a shame they couldn’t make it a little smaller

    If you have a Gear Master for your Game Gear, then you don't need a Sega Master System.

    I love the GameGear. It is such an amazing little handheld that was well ahead of it's time. And even today it's still fun to play. Despite how bulky it is, it's actually pretty comfortable to hold.

    I got my 1st game gear back in 2004 then gave it to my best friend in 2011 then I got my 2nd game gear after my birthday in 2015 that's when i met the staff at the hi score store in North St paul Minnesota it came with the carrying brief case power adapter some manuals and overall games are 15. I'm looking to get the speaker on my game gear replaced on my system I have a show on you tube about gaming and Russian cartoons you guys can subscribe to my channel if you like. I'm looking to get the speaker on the game gear replace or another game gear system in the initial box that says sonic 1 or the sonic 2 system 1992 box thanks Nikita.K

    Buying guide?
    More like "All roms"
    For the Casual collector, you can skip getting this amazing system. Things are kind of overpriced where they don't need to be and a lot of the games are very lackluster. If you're looking for a good mobile device for retro gaming? It's in your hand right now.
    The controls might not be the best, but neither are the games… you'll get bored of them as quickly as you'll get tired of the on-screen controller.

    The only game in the entire Game Gear library that I spent more than 10 minutes playing was Shining Force, and only because of my love for that series.

    If you're gonna buy a game gear make sure it has been redone with new capacitors and screen. Mine works perfectly after having it done
