    I enjoyed Sonic 2 and Sonic Chaos (too easy though, but atleast you can play tails solo which is fun. I also liked Echo the Dolphin a lot. I don't like sports games but I did enjoy NBA Jam, it worked out quite well on the GG.

    Strangly enough, I've never played Columns....

    World Series Baseball is probably the best handheld baseball game I've ever played. Many late nights in junior high playing that game.

    I hate Dragon Crystal, whether it be on the GG, MS, or on Genesis called Fatal Labyrinth.

    I would add Wonder Boy 3 to the list, as Dragon's Trap is a great game.

    Default Best games for the Game Gear?

    Opinions please? One of the flea markets near me has several Game Gear units, dirt cheap. I was thinking of grabbing one or two and would like to know which titles to look out for. Im not too into "rarity", for me its more about a quality game.

    Any opinions (or Game Gear games for sale/trade for that matter..) are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Shining Force no doubt, but it can be expensive a little.

    My favorites include Sonic Chaos (my personal favorite Sonic on the GG), Tails' Adventure, Mortal Kombat, Devilish, NBA Jam, and Columns.

    I am going to focus mainly on exclusive games here.

    Sonic Triple Trouble is the only 8-bit Sonic game not also available on Master System, and it happens to be the best of them all. Very good graphics for the system, and great gameplay. Even the music is good.

    Defenders of Oasis is a terrific Game Gear exclusive RPG, and unlike most GG RPGs, was actually released in English. Why they bothered with Japan-only RPGs on a system that bombed in Japan remains an irritating mystery to me.

    Speaking of RPGs, Crystal Warriors is an incredibly good strategy-RPG. It's better than the GG Shining Force game. Really well-made, with a great battle system.

    RC Grand Prix is the system's only exclusive racer. As you can surmise from the title, it's along the same lines as RC Pro-Am.

    Both GG Shinobi games are completely unique to the system, and are awesome. Kind of along the same lines, there is a Ninja Gaiden for Game Gear which is also completely different from any other Ninja Gaiden (including the SMS one).

    Halley Wars is a surprisingly good vertical shooter. The GG Aleste games are also good.

    Super Columns might be the definitive version of classic Columns gameplay (Columns 3 changed it around completely). For some reason it was only on Game Gear.

    Game Gear was home to 3 exclusive X-Men games. The best is the second, subtitled Game Master's Legacy. But all three are worth playing.

    Pengo is a great port of an arcade game from 1982.

    Both Jurassic Park and The Lost World are rather good for GG, and different from all the other games with the same title. The first Jurassic Park might be the same for Master System, but I've never played the SMS version. The Lost World was the final GG release worldwide.

    Arena: The Maze of Death is an interesting case. Released later in the system's lifespan (1995), this game was created from the ground-up for Game Gear, and doesn't exist on any other system, and it's not based on any other IP either. It's a unique action-adventure game with an isometric perspective.

    GG-exclusive rip-offs:
    If you want to see a weird attempt at ripping off Metroid, Tails Adventure fits the bill. It's more linear than Metroid, but has the same basic gameplay elements. There's a good rip-off of Cadash in the form of Ax Battler (in which you wield a sword, but whatever). Woody Pop is the best Arkanoid rip-off ever made.

    16-bit Ports:
    At the time they sold the system, but in this day and age, there's really not any reason to bother with GG ports of Genesis games. With a couple of exceptions. Ristar is worth it just because of how good of a port it is. Dynamite Headdy is worth it because it has differences in levels and gameplay (as well as making the transition rather well). Lemmings might be worth it, as it's pretty much just as good as any version. Urban Strike is interesting because of how "advanced" of a game it is. Super Return of the Jedi is kind of interesting for being a port of a 16-bit game that was only available on SNES. Galaga '91 is the system's only TG16 port. And Baku Baku is a Saturn port that somehow works out well.

    SMS Ports:
    Generally speaking, I would recommend SMS versions over GG versions when available. However, if you don't have an SMS or Power Base Converter and have no intentions of getting either, the GG versions are usually fine. Here's a few games from that category I would recommend. First off, Wonderboy: The Dragon's Trap is an incredible game (also available for TG16 as Dragon's Curse). Secondly, Vampire: Master of Darkness (aka In the Wake of Vampire) takes a page from Castlevania but is one of the best 8-bit action games ever. Third, Bram Stoker's Dracula is a great fast-paced action game, and actually much better than the 16-bit versions (which were a different game). There's also Revenge of Drancon, a weirdly-titled port of the original Wonderboy; Fantasy Zone, the classic shooter; Sonic 1, 2, and Chaos; and Dragon Crystal, a very odd mix of RPG and puzzle. GG didn't have all that many SMS ports considering the hardware (I guess because of the Master Gear converter).

    Edit: Nevermind, I made this post before it was merged into the Top 20 thread.

    -World Series Baseball
    -X-Men: GamesMaster's Legacy

    There was a point in my youth when the Game Gear was the most advanced video game technology we had in my house, so I'm familiar with a lot of what's coming up in this thread...

    - Dragon Crystal was my first roguelike. As in, before I even knew of the term or what it meant. I just knew I loved it.
    - Psychic World was okay, but I remember beating it in about a day after getting it, and trading it to FuncoLand to get some other game soon afterward.
    - Fantasy Zone Gear was enjoyable, even if only because I hadn't played any other version of the series.
    - I definitely remember a terrible Spiderman game. The photo-taking system was kinda cool I guess, but there's this one level where the second it starts you just get pinned in the corner by lightning bolts until you die.
    - The Sonic games for it I definitely enjoyed, but again, we didn't have a Genny back then...what can I say, they did the job.
    - Defenders of Oasis, yes, amazing RPG...'Uy-OY-sta!' I bet I could knock on my brother's door at any point today and imitate that genie, and he'd make a sad-nostalgic sound in response...
    - AERIAL ASSAULT! I was just thinking over games I had and wondering if that one was gonna show up in this thread or not...can't remember what set it apart from other shooters of the same kind, but again, I had fun with it...
    - Shining Force was one of my brother's games, we both liked it...pretty awesome, and this was long before turn-based-strategy/RPG hybrids came to be such a prominent genre
    - Woody Pop, forget if I ever beat it, but definitely played a lot.
    - Ax Battler - Okay, it has about as much in common with Golden Axe as the PS2 'Dark Alliance' games had in common with Baldur's Gate, but it wasn't bad.

    This thread makes me wanna go dig up the rest of my GG stuff in the closet and see if I forgot anything especially awesome...definitely played the hell out of Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, but it was pretty sad that this was in the "need two copies" days, plus it didn't help that the Game Gear link cable was kinda hard to find...eventually got one, not sure if we even have any games around that we've got two copies of :/

    [digs in closet] Not too much else worth mentioning...except Space Harrier. Another game that's pretty kickass if you're not too familiar with the other versions of it. Some part of my memory is remembering the scratchy lil voice going "Get ready!"

    OK, these are my Top 20 Game Gear games:

    Bust-A-Move
    Columns
    Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse
    Deep Duck Trouble
    Gunstar Heroes (Import)
    Joe Montana Football
    Land of Illusion
    Legend of Illusion
    Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers
    NBA Jam
    Sonic Blast
    Sonic Chaos
    Sonic Drift 2
    Sonic the Hedgehog
    Sonic Triple Trouble
    Streets of Rage 2
    Tails' Adventure
    Tempo Jr.
    The Lucky Dime Caper

    I love the Game Gear to death, but boy does it have a shitty library. At least there are some really good ports and some great SEGA games on it.

    <skaar> Sega is like Marilyn Monroe would be if she was still alive but at one point went completely bankrupt and started making skin flicks.

    Actually gunstar hero's isnt that uncommon in my neck of the woods. I've come across it several times recently.

    I dont know about 20 games for the game gear but my faves are as follows.

    Batman returns
    Sonic 2
    Mega Man
    Mortal Kombat

    And hands down one of the best games not only on the system but in the series it spawn from, Might Morphin Power Rangers. Best game period in my opinion.

    I only have one Game Gear game. Gunstar Heroes. If you like the Genesis version, the Game Gear version is worth picking up. Same basic game, although with some different/missing levels. Really fun game, although the Genesis version is definitely superior (surprising, huh?).
