Old School Gamer counts down the 10 best Game Gear ports.
10: Alien Syndrome: Sega’s underrated Master System shooter is a fun one on the Game Gear.
9: Columns: This does exactly what you’d expect, despite the smaller real estate.
8: Ecco the Dolphin: It’s just as beautiful on the small Game Gear screen.
7: Battletoads: The sprites are much smaller, but this one is a fun beat-em-up on the go.
6: NHL All-Star Hockey: A Game Gear hockey game with real players and teams? That plays solid? Yes. The animations are awful, but it’s all there.
5: Ninja Gaiden: Not as good as the NES version, but again, it’s there and enjoyable.
4: Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap: This one is an underrated gem on the Game Gear.
3: Out Run: Sega’s classic racer plays well on the Game Gear and has awesome sound. Could you ask for more back then?
2: Sonic the Hedgehog 2: This bite-sized verson of Sega’s mascot is still enjoyable.
1: Streets of Rage 2: One of the best games on the Genesis is also one of the best on the Game Gear.
I love the Sega Game Gear. Still have one in the box.
