Bought a (new) handheld today :-D

Yeah I finally did it, 
though I have been thinking about extending my collection to include more handhelds I just never felt the same need to do so, like I do with home consoles. However over the past few days symptoms of intense collector's decease surfaced and I had to act fast. Which of cause means that I bought a handheld console, a SEGA Game Gear to be precise including three games:  http://cgi.ebay.de/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220643658597&ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT#ht_500wt_1154 
Columns, Sonic 1 and Castle of Illusion look kinda neat but of cause there have got to be more great Game Gear games. So now I am thinking about getting Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Panzer Dragoon Mini, Mortal Kombat 3, Doctor Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, Outrun, Space Harrier and Micro Machines. I haven't played any of these games on Game Gear yet, to be honest I only played Sonic the Hedgehog once on a friend's Game Gear so I am not sure if this really is a good selection so I would like to rely on the Giant Bomb community with this one. What should I get for my Game Gear, what do you think about the games I listed?

Has the regret set in yet?
 
I remember having a Game Gear back in the day, but I don't remember what I ever played on it.  Sorry.

@Spoonman671: Since I bought it for 25 bucks boxed with three games there isn't much to regret, I could always sell it again at a higher price (sure, as if that will happen ^^)

I hope you bought a lot of batteries.

For 25 bucks it would be more expensive not to buy it right :-P

Pretty heavy, but that's not the problem you'll face, as the batteries will run out long before your arms have the chance to get tired. It's a shame, there's a few great games for the Game Gear, but I never beat a single one of them because of my 6 fucking batteries constantly dying. Sonic Chaos remains unbeaten.

You should get both Shinobi games for Game Gear. They're two of the best games on the console. Also, if you'd like another Shinobi-esque game, then try Batman Returns. It'd might as well be a Shinobi game.
