  1. It depends on the recipient. Folks here would find fault with the sound and colors. The average person of a certain age who played NES games might enjoy the memory. Everyone else will find it inaccessible and tedious, because they don't like video games anyway, especially old ones. They probably won't bother to hook it up. These Famicom clones with built in games are all quite similar these days. I haven't touched this one but know the type. Don't expect miracles (or for it to save your progress) but it's fine. There are standalone game players with their own screens that will be more accessible to non gamers. Do you have a price limit?
  2. I would go with DOS as well. So much great stuff, and not available anywhere else. If in doubt, peruse https://exodos.the-eye.us/ I could totally understand someone of a certain age with a nice sound card not needing to take a second look at any other game console. If I weren't a graphics whore with a short attention span, I'd be this guy. http://crpgaddict.blogspot.com/
  3. Mobile might be where all the casual gaming is, but it has a rep of being just for kids and facebook moms who play Candy Crush. I think it's the heir to the classic arcade, and there are tons of hardcore games as well. I think anyone who cries about not liking to play on a touchscreen just might not have a complete understanding of how cool the app store can be. It's my favorite platform bar none, the desert island thing I would rather not do without. If you hate mobile gaming, that's fine, you don't have to agree with me or fight about it with me, this opinion is my own.
  4. Wow, I never knew there was a port of Space Harrier on the Atari Lynx! Family fun for the whole fun family.
  5. That's what I meant by wireless streaming ... no looooong HDMI cord needed. If they latency is low, that's pretty convenient. I would think they'd allow hardwired HDMI too?
  6. @MrBeefy the old collections on CD are good if you don't mind playing on a computer (and you can bring a modern emulator and run the ROMs if you want). Intellivision Lives for DS is neat because it uses the touchscreen to simulate the number pad with an overlay. The emulator isn't perfect but the controller gimmick works for this purpose. Again, it's a shame it was never updated with the emulator quirks fixed and more software included, but it's still neat. Not "buy a whole new system to play old games" neat, but cool if you have a 3DS already.
  7. Looks pretty good to me. $200 is a fair price for wireless streaming, all those buttons, and hopefully a capable computer inside. https://www.atgames.us/collections/productline/products/copy-of-legends-gamer-reservation
  8. I've been awaiting Panzer Dragoon for the Switch. I think it's just a remake of the 1995 game. These are all PC games, not exclusives, correct?
  9. I liked the relative depth of the games, the relatively higher resolution graphics, and the extra inputs made possible by the complex controllers. I came to it during the cartridge crash of 83-84 so it was a value option for me as well. Some years later, I enjoyed Tower of Doom as an action roguelike. 2014's Intellivision Flashback was cute but I wish it had sold better so it could get an update with some emulation fixes and more games. As much as I enjoyed it, games (and I) have moved on. I have warm remembrances but I'm unlikely to put any money into new things with that name.

  11. Saturn had the space plane, which was neat. It wasn't reactive to music, though. I had a Sega CDX, which I thought had a graphic equalizer or something. Can't remember. I have a JVC X'Eye I need to test (and sell), I will check that for a visualizer.
  12. Happy 97th birthday to Chuck Yeager!

      My 4th grade teacher was very, VERY proud of the fact that he knew Chuck Yeager. He had an autographed photo of him he'd Xerox copies of & give to all the kids on the first day of class. (And, as I learned later, to all the parents on parent/teacher conference day.)

  13. At those prices, I'd rather have it on a durable cartridge, not a floppy disk. no box though https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F273749345256
  14. That Eisenfunk video needs more screens that say LOADING.....
