    Early 80's game watches

    Does anyone know what kind of games were on the video game watches of the early 1980's?

    Anyway, I found a video. Now I know WHY they didn't catch on.

    But there were some little hand-held video games that were pretty popular back then. You needed a little more room. One year I got one for Christmas and for days I had trouble finding it because one of my parents usually had it. They were hooked.

    Yeah I had donkey kong Jr. Nintendo game & watch I think they were called.
    [EDIT] Actually my brother had it, I used to play it a lot though.

    I had a Gakken trojan horse game. These little games were incredibly addicting. We played them for countless hours.

    I had a Pac-Man game watch when I was in grade school and I thought it was the absolute coolest thing in the world.

    Then I made the mistake of swimming with it and finding out it wasn't water resistant. OOPS.
