Although we live in an age of advanced consoles, where gaming has never looked better, there is something about retro gaming that we still find irresistible. There’s something about the clattering of arcade buttons and 16-bit graphics that feels so appealing (not to mention all the great games from these earlier eras).

If you’ve been looking to embrace retro gaming, here are a few options that will let you feel that nostalgia.

Launched last year to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the The legend of Zelda series, this portable console packs a lot of punch in a pocketable package. Modeled after Nintendo’s retro Game & Watch, it comes loaded with three games, the original Zelda, Zelda II: Link’s Adventure and the underrated The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening.

While the portability of the Nintendo Switch is a big part of its charm, it’s not something you can easily slip into a jacket pocket. This Game & Watch lets you play three classics Zelda games on the go without taking up a ton of space in your backpack or purse. It also includes fun time-specific events, modes, and secrets, so even if you’ve played these games a hundred times before, there’s something new for you to discover. Also, it looks really cool.
