Handheld Tetris game with color
I used to have a friend who refused to listen to my rationale about why something like a PSP or Nintendo DS Lite was more cost-effective (not to mention better looking and more versatile) than her basket of those dedicated handheld games she'd get from supermarkets and drug stores.
Unable to break through her steel wall of stubbornness, I eventually gave in and started buying her games to add to her collection. When I gave her some "big screen" version of Tetris a few years ago, she nearly keeled over from excitement. Never mind that the graphics looked like something from the original Game Boy (aka "the spinach-green era"); she couldn't get over how "big" the screen was.
We ended up having a falling out a few years later (unrelated to gaming) that we've yet to get over, but I'm still thinking about sending her this new Tetris Gold Game ($35) because of its 2.5-inch color screen. It would floor her.
Tetris on a color screen. Imagine that!
