Reblog and add your game in tags if your first handheld was older than Nintendo.
- Merlin (1978 - the granddaddy of all gaming consoles!)
- Simon (1978 - only one of these I didn’t own)
- Entex PacMan2 (1980)
- Mattel Electronics Football (1977)
- Entex Baseball (1979; I think I may have had the original)
- Entex Space Invader (1980)
- Nelsonic/Sega Frogger Watch (1983)
- Nelsonic/Sega Q*bert Watch (1983)
…back then, we didn’t have cartridges and such, so if you wanted a game, it had to be a custom, dedicated gadget.
