I think I've noticed there's 2 types of people when it comes to Game & Watch collectors. People who put batteries in and plays them sometimes, and some that just keep them in a display.

Do you play G&Ws or just collect?

Me, I like to play when I'm in the mood. I like to have batteries in the units as much as I can.

I honestly thing a lot of these games could be redone in a modern fashion and still be fun, in fact I think that's what part of the Game & Watch Gallery games are for. A lot of phone games are in the same vein with getting a high score with simplistic addicting gameplay, not as in depth as modern gaming, but nice to kill time with.

Fire is probably my favorite simplistic one. Really fun to try to get a high score with all the people bouncing around.

Super Mario Bros and Bombsweeper are amazing intricate well designed games that take advantage of the LCD design to give it fun gameplay. Bombsweeper has to be one of my favorite puzzle games next to Tetris.

Every once in a while I'll get the urge to pick them up and play them. I'll even take one with me if I need to do waiting and want to play something other than my phone.


So how about you guys? What's your stance? Do you like playing them? What's your favorite?
Do you just collect them? Do you want to keep them in good condition and don't want to mess with them? Some of them are high in value. I can't imagine ever really playing a Cystal Screen game in fear of damaging the screen, I'd just mess with the wide screen version.

I collect, but hardly ever play the Game&Watch games.

I like new Wide Screen DK Jr. very much and Multi Screen Donkey Kong. Octopus is great, too.

I don't really know why I almost never play these great games. I sort of like having them and display them in vitrines ... :mrgreen:

It's cool, part of me would like to collect all of the games even if some of them aren't too interesting in gameplay to me.

Part of me wants to collect in which ones seems most interesting in gameplay first, but lately I've been just trying to get the most interesting and or affordable ones from each series.

First I got Super Mario Bros, which I loved as a kid in the Mini Classics form. I played Bombsweeper on G&W Gallery 4 and I thought the gameplay was intensely fun so I got that next.

After that, part of me really really wanted to get my hands on a panorama, so I got Popeye because I thought it seemed like a fun game to play, and it is, but it's a bit too easy to get a high score.

Club Nintendo Ball was a great way to get a G&W without spending too much so I got that, but I have to say it's probably the lowest replay value of the ones I have.
Then this Christmas I got Mario Bros, which is really fun when it speeds up.

Ultimately, I kinda want to get at least 1 from each series. I missed a Donkey Kong Hockey that sold for 40, BOXED AND NEVER OPENED! I was so mad at myself when I did, but every time I tried to bid it autobidded against me so I gave up not wanting to end up spending more than I can on an autobid that might climb up past 100 USD.


Next unit, I really want to get Wide Screen Fire, but it's surprisingly a bit more expensive than what I'd imagine. Either that or Zelda, maybe Donkey Kong.


Either way, there is both of those aspects in me when collecting, but I do love to play them when I'm in the mood. If they remade Bombsweeper with modern graphics I'd eat it up. The other part of me loves Nintendo and wants to collect all those Gameboy predecessors as much as I can.

I still enjoy playing some of them, mostly the puzzle/maze games because they have many varying levels/worlds.

Only use units that have a lesser condition, I don't like opening boxes.

Favorite? Not easy, but if I need to choose one I'll go for Climber.

I agree, but I really found the G&W Gallery games a hugh disappointment, very ugly graphics.

The puzzle ones are really nice. BombSweeper is definitely one of my favorites, and I just capped my all time highscores on both Game A and B a few days ago too.

Climber is definitely great. The replay value is huge. I always assumed Climber was a port of Ice Climbers. Knocking through platforms. The end stage bonus of catching a flight from a giant bird. I tried to get a mint combo of Climber and Balloon Fight but the price skyrocketed so I gave up.

I also agree that playing a very mint unit probably isn't the best idea. The games I have are the units alone, in decent condition but not flawlessly mint, so I don't mind playing them.

As for G&W Gallery. They're ok, but some of it could be better. I didn't like how Game & Watch Gallery 4 recycled a huge amount of games that were already on older Gallery games. The graphics were inconsistent. Some had anti alias and made the graphics look really nice. Some were aliased and looked bad.
The sound also was inconsistent. A lot of the games that were recycled reuse the old soundchip synth sounds, while other games had recorded samples from actual game & watch units.

Something is more enveloping about playing actual G&W units over simulations though. The coding isn't always perfect on simulations, and visually and physically, playing a real unit is more satisfying.

Example being, I never cared about Helmet very much, but after playing a real unit, it might be one of my favorite Game & Watch games to play.

I do both. I own a 60/60 boxed collection that I never touch, but I also like to play some of my old doubles every now and then. I started a Speed Konging tournament on Mike's forum if you're interested.
