  1. Chinatown shops all over are usually great for finding good buys, especially when you run into a place with older stuff in stock. Even though it’s a common title (and the same game as the Master System version), that’s a pretty cool find as it’s complete and in great shape. Now, if it were a copy of Sonic Drift 2, I’d be telling you to find a working Game Gear so you could play it…


  2. I find that it’s getting harder and harder to find games from this era in local shops for reasonable prices. I’ve seen a few stores that are selling these games for more than a typical ebay price (even after considering shipping) which is both crazy and discouraging.
    However, just today I bought three very good condition SNES carts for $20 total (just carts). So good prices are still out there.
    I have a working Game Gear so I’ll be ready for this Sonic Drift 2 if I find it. 🙂 Do you know if there were a lot of exlusive titles for the Game Gear that weren’t on the Sega Master System?

      I don’t think this list is “complete” as I saw a listing on an emulator site that noted 444 games. There were plenty of GG games that never made it to the SMS, and some are a bit rare such as Panzer Dragoon Mini and Gunstar Heroes (both of which I had ages abo, but sold off, he said, kicking himself after seeing recent prices for them).

      If you haven’t used your GG in a while, you may want to turn it on and see how the screen is and if it’s still working. Apparently, there’s a big issue with older handhelds like the GG, Lynx and Turbo Express where the screen goes out and even though you may get power and sound, there’s no picture. I think it’s a solder issue, as my GG and Express are no longer showing an image and my Lynx’s screen is starting to fail.
