TV Games

What is it?

After quite a bit of googling, "TV Games" was the best generic term I could find. Really, these are handheld units that pack a video game system (or simulator thereof) and several games inside the space of a regular controller. These units plug directly into a TV/monitor. They're nearly consoles, but do not allow for cartridges or other media to be plugged in, so you're stuck with whatever is built-in.

What do you have in your collection?

Activision 10-in-1, and "Plug & Play" (aka TV-450).

What are you doing with them?

They're an interesting diversion - very portable.
