History of Nintendo’s handhelds

Gamepro has a great piece up about Nintendo’s long history in the handheld market. Noticeably absent is the Game & Watch series, but everything else is there. I can remember paying a ridiculous amount at my local import shop to have a Game Boy Light imported from Japan, only for the Game Boy Color to release less then a year later.

Go brush up on your handheld history in-between 3DS play sessions. Awesome to see how far handheld gaming has progressed in less than 25 years. I mean how did we even game on those horrid green-ish screens?

What has been your favorite gaming handheld, Nintendo or otherwise?
