I want a handheld game that I can take with me to help when I have to wait a long time.
I want a handheld gaming system that I can play games like Tetris on. I do not own a mobile phone so that is out.
I'd suggest either crossword puzzles, word finds, or sudoku. They're the easiest and cheapest. Plus, you don't have to worry about a battery running low or making sure it's charged before you go.
You can get a variety of handheld electronic games if you look in the game section at any store. They will satisfy your craving for wanting to play a game... but, if you are looking for games like Tetris you can check out Gamestop for used handheld games. They are more affordable and usually work just as well. If you want an investment, I would go for the PSP or the Nintendo DSI - both have internet capabilities, but then you also have to purchase games as well. Both can be a big investment.
You should get a Nintendo DS. My boys all have one and i am constantly playing on them lol. The DS has a huge selection of games so you shouldn't have a problem finding one you like, and they even have Tetris.
I would suggest a ds over a psp as most of the games on the psp are very expensive as well as focusing mainly on fighting games. But ds games are more relaxed and easy going.
My favourite handheld entertainment device is a book.
Not the same book, of course, but a new one each time I finish the one I'm on. No wearout or boredom factor, with a new book available anytime I want.
There are several other advantages over electronic handhelds as well, including: cheap, recyclable, virtually indestructible (carry in hand, pocket, bag etc), less tempting to opportunist thieves if you should happen to inadvertently leave your book on the table after coffee, endless variety of topics, genres, and authors, (thus customisable to suit your exact personal preferences), non-irritating to fellow bus, plane, train passengers, and of course, books never need recharging, or batteries.
Plus, as a keen writer (I assume you are too, given you're a fellow Hubber..), I find reading is a great way to observe good writing skills and techniques, and learn from the talents of others. Education and entertainment in the one package. What's more, that learning is transferable, even convertible into money, if you use it to improve your own skills, and apply it when writing revenue-generating Hubs.
Of course, if you're totally committed to buying an electronic handheld, you can easily combine both worlds, and grab yourself a Kindle....

What are your favorite "old school" games and board games?We live in a world of electronic gizmos that require game systems and batteries--lots of batteries. My wife and I have found, however, that the games WE grew up with still have merit, and our kids will play them with us. What...

How common is it to collect old handheld video games from the 80's?I've been collecting old handheld and tabletop games for around 10 years and have quite a collection, but how rare is this hobby? Do other people collect these kinds of games or is it just me?

What is your opinion on the PS Vita? Would you recommend it, and if so, why?So after seeing some fantastic deals for the console (like 10 games and the console for £150) as well as a wad of Christmas bonus, I've decided this might be worth the investment. But what do my fellow Hubbers think about...

Blizzard Entertainment knew Diablo III would be a hit, and they could also see it as "an unworthy attempt of a sequel" (dubbed by some players). The franchise has been a must-have for any RPG gamer who's looking for a bit of HeXeN thrown into their top-down fantasy game. But what do you...

Do you think that computer games are good entertainment or they are a waste of time?
