I remembered another solid one, if you're into golf at least, the 2nd revision (gold vs blue stickering) of Golden Tee Golf.  That revised one has a few courses (not just 1), practice range, 4 players (not just one), saves scores too.  The visuals are pretty low/basic like the early arcade versions but the play is solid as it has a good trackball and button setup for it.

Also jakks plug and plays were to the 2000s that tiger handhelds were to the 90s

And here we are in the late 2010s where kids as young as 2 are playing on tablets with games like roblox and Minecraft clones... damn weve come a long way, what will the 2020s and beyond bring?

Years from now when all these kids are grown are they going to be nostalgic for old mobile devices that still have downloads of the games they played as kids and buying them on eBay? lol... Safe to say mobile and digital gaming will be a big part of the future.

Anyways sorry for changing the subject so yeah back to plug and plays, anyone remember the TV boy, the first plug and play 😁

Who knows, but the jakks inspired stuff is still out there, but they're staying on the market far longer (years instead of months) because the quality (though still RCA jacks) hit a high note where they're welcome like that 3 years now on the market Pac-Man bodied controller with a tuck away cord.  Nearly 1:1 quality to the set of arcade games it has, solid menu, saves all your scores too.  Great device and been new on the shelf for $20 for a long time and they move.  That snowballed into the MyArcade/Bridge Direct one shot mini cabs of the last 18 months.

I like my Jakks pinball plug and play. Always wondered if they were NES roms because I don't think it was a port of anything.
