During the late 80s and early 90s video games were still a relatively nascent form of entertainment.  Nevertheless, it was a magical experience and to this day firing up Excitebike – provided I can get my NES working – elicits a wide variety of positive emotions.

And that’s why I’m seriously considering buying this Sega Genesis Ultra Portable Game Player.  It costs $46 and ships with 80 games built-in. This includes 27 actual SEGA games and 3 Capcom games.  Other features include a rechargeable battery, an SD card slot for downloading and adding additional games, and a 2.8-inch LCD.

Notable games include Sonic the Hedgehog 1 & 2, Super Street Fighter II, Altered Beast (a personal fave), Shinobi, Streets of Rage (1 and 2), MEGA MAN, and many, many more.

Reviews are a bit mixed on Amazon, but seeing as it costs less than an actual video game disc of today, why the hell not.
