I have the Game Gear Micro. It is amazing that it is so small and actually works. I made a video about it

I want to buy an Amico too.

I'm not sure if the thing I regret buying most is the Genesis Mini I still haven't unboxed (I told myself I was waiting for the chance to mod it to remove Virtua Fighter 2) or Ring Fit Adventure (haven't used it, though it makes a nice karma cart for my Switch).

The thing I miss buying most is the loose cart FFV Advance that was at my local EB for like two years, since V is the only FF of the first 7 that I haven't beaten because there really isn't a suitable version to play.

Maybe I should regret my PlayStation VR purchase since I've only finished one of the VR games for it, but I enjoyed Tetris Effect too much to regret it. The GOTY edition of Fallout 3 is probably my pick, though I got it on sale for $30. Took me a scant few hours to not jive with what a Bethesda RPG is.

I gotta say that the possibility of Jon selling the Cat Helmet is somewhat disturbing. That treasure would be the centerpiece, the load-bearing wall if you will, of the future RFN Hall of Fame. It'd be like the Baseball Hall of Fame without Shoeless Joe Jackson's shoelaces. An important piece of history would be missing.

Plus, think of the tax advantages! Jon could lease the Cat Helmet to the RFN Hall of Fame for a lucrative yearly sum! Using the RFN HoF thusly, Jon could turn the unused portion of his gaming collection into a lifetime annuity that would see him live his golden years in style!
