I thought Id start out by writing about they systems and the games I own. I am always expanding my collection and would gladly accept any donations. If that sounds like a solicitation for free games.... well it is.
Anywho Ill tell you a little about each system and Ill end up reviewing the games a little later. For now courage!
First up is My oldest system the
The Odyssey 2 was released in 1978 by Magnavox. It has two joystick controllers that are hardwired into the console. The console is unique in the fact that it has a keyboard on it possibly to make it look like a computer, but it can be used for word type games. The Odyssey 2 was one of the first game systems I ever had. Right now my Odyssey is not working it could be the fact that it is 30 years old but Im pretty sure I just need a new RF adaptor for it. Once it is running again it will be glorious!

Game boy came out in America in 1989 it was big, bulky and grey with a yellow and green screen. Gam boy took four batteries or could use an ac adaptor. I bought mine in 1990 and its big, bulky and grey with a yellow and green screen and I couldn't love it more.

Now Game boy Advance was originally suppose to come out in 1996 as a follow up to the Game boy Color. It entered American markets in 2001 to much acclaim. Game Boy Advance was backwards compatible which meant it could play old Game Boy games as well as new and it only took two batteries. I pretty much used it to play old games instead of new ones hence the small collection.

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon
If you thought Game Boy was huge you never played Game Gear. Sega put out Game Gear in 1991 and its the size of one and 1/2 Game Boys. This big bad mutha was back lit, which meant you could play in the dark, the graphics were much better than Game Boy. It also took six batteries which died in about half an hour as opposed to Gameboys 4 batteries and ten hour game play. Game Boy came on to the market at about $80 and Game Gear $150. But the games were still awesome warts and all.

Now this was and is my main system. I loved this thing. As of recent my sound card stopped working so it sounds awful. But I have a new system of sorts that Ill talk about in a bit that lets me play Sega games. Sega came onto the market in North America in 1989 and it was full of 16bit goodness. With Sonic the Hedgehog it was the first major competition for Nintendo.

Many of you may be wondering, "How can he play all of those Sega games if his system does not work?" Well dear reader let me inform you of a nice little bootleg system called:
The FC3 plus can play Nintendo (NES), Super Nintendo (SNES), Sega Genesis, and G-Factor Games. It was put out sometime after 2006 by the Yobo company. There are disputes that some games don't play on the FC3 plus, I cannot verify that at this time but I can say that the SNES controls are backwards. Its like driving a car with the gas and break pedal switched. You also have to use the controls that came with the system. You cannot use your old Sega/etc. controllers on here. Not the biggest deal but you cannot use you old mouse for Mario Paint (making it unplayable) or power glove, or Turbo pads, whatever. The other issue I have is the control cords are like two feet long so you have to make like you are six and sit right in front of the television. Otherwise its awesome and I love this thing.

Now entering the 21st century
I ended up getting a Playstation 2 (PS2) when I worked at the video store. I ended up renting more game than buying them and I usually just went back to playing my Sega. The PS2 hit the North American markets in October of 2000 it will be one of the first systems to have games available on it ten years later with 20 games announced for 2010.
