Game Gear game reccomendations
« on: May 19, 2013, 09:36:40 am »
I recently picked up a Game Gear Game Genie and I guess it had a bug in it... because I've been bitten by the Game Gear bug. :P

I've had a Game Gear for a while now, including stuff like the Super Wide Gear and the Game Gear carrying case. But in terms of games, I only own 9, and I want to pick up a few more.

Currently I have:
Sonic 1
Sonic 2
Sonic Chaos
Sonic Triple Trouble
Sonic Drift 2
Shinobi
Super Columns
Itchy & Scratchy
The Lucky Dime Caper Starring Donald Duck

On my wish list:
Land of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
Legend of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
Deep Duck Trouble Starring Donald Duck
Sonic Spinball
Mean Bean Machine
Dragon Crystal - Worth getting? Local used game shop has it for $7

Those are great picks you got so far. I can recommend fantasy zone if you like that type of game. I mean he is part of the SEGABits logo ;p

Its a shoot em up where you can fly freely, upgrade at shops and it has some cool boss battles. its a great pick up n play game which fits the handheld

Thanks! I'm well aware of Opa-Opa's games, but never considered the Game Gear version of the game. I'll check it out!

I dug Defender of Oasis in the day, fun little JRPG...also Ren & Stimpy: Quest for the Shaven Yak!

I wanna recommend Shinobi 2 but i can't remember what went wrong with that one.

Virtua Fighter Animation. Such a strange game, but still fun.

I seconded that. The only character that's missing is Jeffrey though.

Yeah, I thought that was strange, though not anywhere near as strange as playing through the 'Story Mode'.

Alien Syndrome.
GG version is much much much better than Master System version since they're so different.

I think the Master System version is better to be honest.

Master System version is kinda like different game from its root (arcade version of Alien Syndrome), but thankfully still retain the same atmosphere of course.
NES version, Game Gear version, and even PC XT DOS version is closer to the arcade version.
Of course the definitive version is its arcade-perfect 3DS version.

Shining Force for game gear is just great! Tail's Adventure is pretty cool too for a spin off. But a really cool thing is that if you have any master system games you can buy a SEGA Master System Game Gear Converter and play your Master System games on your Game Gear!
