First quizzer! What an snazzy achievement! And yes, I did in fact just use the word snazzy.

Including GBC is like including DSi and New 3DS. They're all redesigns with slightly better hardware and a few exclusive games.

No Virtual Boy? May not have been the pinnacle of gaming technology, but it did exist.

I agree, little known, and Nintendo may prefer not to talk about it, but it was definitely a Nintendo manufactured console.

Now the real question is does it belong in the portable category or not? I may be wrong about this but I think it ran on batteries.

Virtual boy was either a console or portable that's for sure. Should be on quiz.

Great quiz though

yeah, why isn't it included? and this is a less glaring omission but what about GameBoy Pocket

The gameboy pocket was just a redesigned gameboy, not exactly a product of its own.

^true enough. But the same could be said about GameBoy Color.

The GameBoy Color did have its own games, unlike the GameBoy Pocket.

There was also the Game Boy Advance SP...

Choosing only consoles for which specific games were made seems a sensible criterion to me.

As far as many people are concerned, that never happened.

Virtual boy should be on the quiz. Also, more consistency in the answers. Some require the full name some just require the system name. Eg. 64 worked, but advance did not.

both NGC and GCN would be useful type-ins to have. Though not a big deal on such a short quiz.

For a similar quiz on Atari consoles... have a look at this one:

I'm surprised this isn't rated higher. It definitely should include the Virtual Boy, but other than that it's a great quiz!

As stated above, DSi, Virtual Boy, and New 3DS should all be accepted as well.

It makes sense to only count handhelds which had a new cartridge type. GB, GBA, DS, and 3DS all had a number of different iterations but change the game standards. I agree though that Virtual Boy should definitely count.

In that case the Game Boy Color should probably come out. There were a (very) few cartridges that would play in a GBC but not the older Game Boy, such as Dragon Warrior 3, Pokemon Crystal, and probably a few others, but not enough to really consider it a separate system entirely.

There were quite a lot actually (I've still got a stack of some of them), and setting an arbitrary number for qualification makes less sense surely than just specifying that each console listed must have its own games.

I feel like NES Classic Edition probably ought to be here as well.

Is it really necessary to type in "Classic Edition" though?

Nintendo are as bad as Apple when it comes to re-releasing teir products... DS, DS lite, DSi, DSi XL, 3DS, 3DS XL, 2DS, new 3DS, NEW 3DS XL all released since November 2004 lol

You should add all the redone models like the GBA:SP and the dsi, ds lite, etc. Also Virtual Boy is missing.

Probably not considered different enough from the 3DS. For the most part, slightly modified releases don't seem to count, other than the Game Boy Color.

You accept NES, so it would make sense for you to also accept Super NES.

It’s a really dumb new version of the 3ds. It doesn’t close and the 3D feature’s gone. The fact it’s dumb is just my opinion though, as I’ve heard people that really like it.

International suggestion here, maybe accept Famicom and Super Famicom for the NES and SNES accordingly? I typed them both in and neither worked.

Famicom, Super Famicom, Color-TV Game, DS variants, GB Light, GBA Variants, Wii Mini?
