Because as the title says, the focus is on the Game Boy’s wierdest rivals. The Lynx, Game Gear, and Sony’s portable consoles were all rivals, but there wasn’t anything weird or obscure about them, they were treated as legitimate competition, unlike most of these (same goes for the short-lived Neo-Geo Pocket Color, or… Read more
