You are being sent to a tropical island for ten years. You are allowed to take one retro game system and the full library of that system. What do you take with you and why?

JP model2 Sega Saturn-Lots of RPGS Shooters and the original Nights along with Sonic Jam.

Sega Genesis, because 16-bit power. It has all the games you need - action, adventure, racing, shooting, sports, the Sega Genesis has it all.

and you'll be playing your Sega Genesis in a place that looks like a Sonic 1st level, too.

If I have a net connection then Dreamcast. If not, Genesis. On a tropical island though I doubt I'd play either a ton.

Depends. If the system is backwards-compatible, do I get the library for that too? Do I get any addons like the Sega CD? Do I get accessories like the Zapper?

PS1, no contest. SNES and Dreamcast are OK choices

SNES. PS1 probably has a more extensive library but I'd rather have peak 2D than first-gen 3D. I don't want to spend a decade looking at nothing but fucking polygons.

No contest

Honestly, if I was being sent to a (presumably) uninhabited tropical island for ten years, I'd take that time to learn some crafts and use my free time for personal reflection.
Though, in the downtime between that, always having the Gameboy light would be great to take around everywhere assuming I have batteries for it. Mainly for puzzle games to prevent me from going insane and keeping my mind fresh. As cheesy as it sounds and even though I'm not a religious person, having the king james bible for gameboy is at least some reading material.

A later DOS computer. I'll spend a lot longer troubleshooting and figuring controls than most, but I'm familiar enough with that, I'll cope. And hey, daggerfall, systemshock, childhood nostalgia.

Probably Playstation but maybe NES. Depends on my mood for the decade. Will there be chicks there like Robinson Crusoe or will I have my Swiss Family Robinson or is this a solitary Castaway deal? Or like Lost? I probably wouldn't have much time for gaming with all that drama.

good way to set your console on fire.

PS1. I'm more familiar with it than others, and a lot of my favorite games are on the machine.
plus, I get a bunch of free frisbees because hot fuck there's going to be a lot of worthless bullshit on my shelf alongside the good shit

Snes; this also allows me all of the GB library since the Super Game Boy exists.

This is tough. I think I'd have to say SNES. I didn't grow up with it (was a Genesis kid), but it has become my most played console. I was actually torn between the two and even a NES. I feel NES would be better for speedrunning, which I'm sure in 10 years you might try, but SNES usually have more detailed worlds to explore.

So, SNES is final answer I guess. Large enough library to have different experience, nice graphics that are more detailed than NES. You could have just about everything on an SD2SNES, not sure if flash carts are allowed, but either way, you'de have all games, just with SD2SNES you could enjoy some hacks and some higher quality music on the MSU-1.

>As cheesy as it sounds and even though I'm not a religious person, having the king james bible for gameboy is at least some reading material.

Very good point. Honestly I've not read the bible fully, but there are some pretty intersting stories in there even if your not religious. It's kind of neat to imagine the things in a historical perspecive and researching the societies and their norms and customs back then. Some things don't make a ton of sense to us but would have made more sense in a historical perspective.

Gameboy Light would be good though, GBC if you could also play GB would be nice too. GBC had a few games with larger worlds, kind of fun to explore.

Gilligan's Island style. Who will it be, Mary Ann, Ginger, or Mrs. Howell? I know you don't play for the "home" team so I'm guessing it's safe to assume the guys aren't on the list.
