Handheld Gaming Hardships Younger Players Won’t Understand

Christopher Buffa (Prima Games): The more we work with younger gamers, the more we realize that a.) we’re getting old, and b.) they don’t understand the sorts of things we went through in the 80s and 90s, particularly when it comes to handhelds. Mention the Atari Lynx and we get blank stares. Talk about attaching a Super Wide Gear to a Sega Game Gear to magnify screen size and we might as well speak another language. Sure, they grew up with the Game Boy Color, but quickly moved on to greener pastures with Game Boy Advance, DS and 3DS before enjoying games on big screen tablets.

With this in mind, humor the old people and check out these portable gaming hardships. Of course, if you’re as old as we are (or older), you remember these all too well. (Retro)
