What made you get into handheld gaming?

As for me I played and gameboy way back when with Pokemon yellow. I then kinda dropped off of handled and got into consoles with ps1, ps2, then Xbox 360.

I was started to miss my rpg fix when I heard FFIV was on DS. I bought DSi then I bought ace attorney and professor Layton and fell in love with it. I bought 3ds when it first came out because I wanted to get all of the costumes in dead or alive dimensions.

So why did you get into handheld gaming and is it your main source of gaming?

My godfather gave me a GBC + Pokemon Silver on my birthday. Bought every Nintendo system (and pokemon game) since, within the year of launch lol. Lately, I use my handhelds more than my consoles, it was the other way around in the GC era though

Regardless of home console or handheld, I go to where the games are at.
There's no point telling stupid people that they're stupid. They're too stupid to know that they're stupid. Wasted effort.

When my Mom was in the hospital when I was six, I was given a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow to play in order to distract me since I was freaking out about it.

Been hooked ever since.

Pokémon and Zelda brought me to the GameBoy, but I hadn't abandoned consoles at all. I've been playing both side by side all my life.

Pokemon Blue + Blue Game Boy Pocket for my sixth birthday.

I can't believe I'm old enough to remember playing video games in black and white...
