Tanooki Posted May 4, 2017 Share Posted May 4, 2017 Well if you're going to limit it to the color portable war of the early 90s the GG had more variety than the Lynx which really did lack all around in general, but they were both crap compared to the Turbo Express by a long shot. Rampant battery consumption aside because of the tech in any of them, that portable TG16 smoked the hell out of the other two in capability and if you had the home system you really were set. That said, back to that Sega ad. That ad and it's the truth, infuriated me every time I saw it as a teen. That one in print, and their very rigged and stacked manipulative and lying garbage they spewed over the TV in the afternoons too. I recall more recent online stories with old Sega management these days regretting running that type of campaign so at least that's something but too late either way. Outside of so few rare of cases countable on a hands worth of fingers I wouldn't touch one of their systems until deeper into the 90s and second hand no less. It was partly sure rooted in the fact I went to bat for Nintendo consoles back then, but also even in that time frame lying and deceitful ads making up crap and twisting words to sell product to make up for their own crappy problems and short coming would make me swear off buying multiple products going into stuff outside of gaming like food products and so on. If you're that immature to run an ad like that and stick with it, and then talk less up about the good of your item versus just being a patent dick about the competition to me it meant you had the inferior product and you were compensating for something (like the old joke of the insecure dude buying a sports car to cover up having a micro sized willy.) The first Sega product (and last) I would ever buy and pay them money for was the Sega Dreamcast. They started acting right a couple years earlier and put up some really good showing and product with the device so I bought it about 3 weeks after it came out and put probably a good 1000 hours on mine over a few years or so time with no regrets. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
