    It’s where it all began — the Game Boy started the handheld game revolution in 1989, and despite smartphone apps and tablets, there’s still a call for classic handheld video consoles that can deliver a compendium of games — up to 2,600 of them on some models. Name brand games like Donkey Kong and Sonic (and even Pac Man) are included with many consoles, and if you don’t want to keep the action on a 3-inch screen, most will also hook up to your TV via an AV cable for larger screen play. Some pricier models will also do double duty as a music player, camera or e-book reader.
