The Top 10 Handheld Video Games of All-Time

John Smith of writes:

Handhehelds have been around since Nintendo's Game & Watch. While many companies have tried their hand at making portable game machines such as Atari, Nokia and Sega, Nintendo has dominated the market since its inception. Today Sony enjoys a fair share of the market due to the success of its PlayStation Portable console. They have seen many enjoyable games for handhelds, but which ones are the very best? We find out.

That was a nice read.

My personal favorites would be Super Mario World, Super Mario 3D Land, and the Zelda OOT remake for the Nintendo 3DS entertainment system.

Each one of those games are groundbreaking 1st class AAA Nintendo exclusives that every gamer across the globe should have a chance to enjoy. There are many more, too many to count actually. Especially on the long spread of Nintendo handheld devices which lead the industry even today.

I have my eye on the later release of semi announced/rumored Smash Bros 3DS when available wherever games are sold

Every post you make consists of a list of Nintendo games, which you call "groundbreaking AAA quality 1st class exclusives", followed by comments about how they lead the industry.

You sound like a broken record.

P.S. It's not called "Nintendo 3DS Entertainment System". It's just Nintendo 3DS. If you're going to attempt to be PR for them, at least know the proper name.

After you finish whining and complaining maybe you can stay on topic and speak of some of your favorite handheld experiences. No need for the hostility. Pick up your Nintendo 3DS entertainment system and game away for a rewarding attitude adjustment.

The Nintendo 3DS entertainment system is home to many high caliber exclusive gaming experiences. Nintendo has done an amazing job in the past, and to this very day at providing gamers worldwide with critically acclaimed titles that can easily find a place on the top 10 list of a handheld supporter.

You sure showed me didn't you?

Have yourself a good night sir, god bless and happy gaming.

tbh honest..anything he says is correct, nintendo got great games and they are considered AAA NINTENDO games by nintendo standard..

all LX-general-kaos does is expressing his options.. but i know for a fact that he writes like he does because he likes to make ppl angry :P

ShinMaster2407d ago (Edited 2407d ago )

""he writes like he does because he likes to make ppl angry""

So in other words, he's a troll. I thought he fell on his head or something lol.
It's too bad his tool ways don't make the rest of us Nintendo gamers look good.

catfrog2408d ago

do you do marketing for nintendo? are you someone who is paid to sit on websites and talk them up?

if not you should show them your posts, they might hire you

Unexpecta2408d ago

I think why LX-General-Kaos talks like that is because someone was so angry at him one day that they threw their 3DS at his face and it completely changed his mindset and thoughts of mind.

If only a Vita was thrown at his face, maybe then he will change.

Peace Walker.

Is the the 3DS the only handheld you've ever played?
Or are you just advertising again?

Its funny how people tend to forget the time when Pokemon was HUGE. Everything from the anime to the cards... wow that sure brings back memories! Call of Duty, the biggest franchise now, is crap in comparison.

Pokemon GSC at #1 was well deserved.

If so, there are a slew of great genesis and turbografx games that I liked to play on the Nomad and Turboexpress respectably.

As for the primary topic, I think nintendo has such a great long list of dedicated handheld titles that it would be difficult for me to be specific. Same goes for other handhelds like the lynx, gamegear and of course the PSP.

These lists are subjective because not everyone has played the same games so therefore they can not hold the same placement for each person.

Venox20082409d ago

there are really too much great games on handhelds :) so I'll try to write:

Super mario 3D land (3DS) & other Mario main games
Monsters tale (DS)
Legend of zelda: OOT (3DS)
Rhythm heaven (DS)
Elite beat agents & Osu takae ouendan 1 and 2 (DS)
Castlevania series :)))
Metroid fusion & zero mission (GBA)
Kirby series (especially Super star ultra)
Resident Evil: revelations (3DS)
........ (n)........ :)

So the PSP didn't have any great games? I mean it has Patapong, Ys 7, Crisis Core, Final Fantasy Didsidia, God of War Chains of Olympus and Ghost of Sparta. So while it didn't have as many great titles as the DS it still had plenty of great games. Unless of course there's some divine law that prohibits good games from appearing on non Nintendo handhelds.

I'm not trying to troll but the PSP had some great titles and it amazes me that many people forget that.


Krew_922408d ago

I agree. Nintendo is not the only company out there with quality portable games.

Oh well. What can you do?

browngamer412408d ago

I personally prefer Nintendo handhelds and obviously this list was an opinion..but I actually agree with you-my friend has a PSP and it has alot of great games on it.

Venox20082408d ago (Edited 2408d ago )

I have said: I wrote only those that I've remembered on that moment.. yea, there are some on PSP good games too, but not best of all time, if I should choose something from PSP it would be:

Metal gear: peace walker
Metal gear acid 1 & 2
God of war 2 titles

..I wrote only if you now could sleep well at night :D :D

Two_Sheds_Jackson2408d ago (Edited 2408d ago )
