Slightly convoluted question.

Where I work we frequently have a lot of downtime where all I do is browse the internet, which is starting to get a bit boring.

Unfortunately because of the nature of the job we are not allowed to use mobile phones, or any device with either cameras or access to the internet aside from the work computer. When it is very quiet I play games on my phone anyway but we aren't actually allowed to do this.

So, what I am looking for is some kind of cheap handheld console like a classic Gameboy or something that has some decent games I can pick up cheap.

Criteria:

Must be enjoyable with the sound muted.
Must be able to be paused frequently.
No camera on the console.
No internet access on the console.

Any suggestions?

All I could think was like a Gameboy with one of the original Pokémon games or something.

Just get a 2DS. I think they dont have a camera built in.


That or just cover it. Turn off wifi as well.

If I could do that then I would just use my phone. The issue is that we can't use any portable electronic device with the ability to send out confidential information, regardless of whether we actually do that. So I can't just disconnect from Wi-Fi and put tape over the camera.

Not quite, technical support for a supermarket. So we take a lot of customer's information and save it for repairs etc hence the no phones rule.


Its just a supermarket dude. Use a DS.


Its not like your boss is gonna be like O SHIT THATS A DS UR LEAKING IMPORTSNT CUSTOMER INFO

Like shouldnt the supermarket be more worried that their wifi password is probably password and they have more ports open than cape canaveral in the summer?

It isn't actually in a supermarket it's in an office, we take phone calls from the supermarkets and customers at home so basically you are surrounded by confidential information so they are pretty tight on it.


How is their security.





Seriously though. Its a gameboy or nothing at this point if you really want a disconnected device. Try to find an SP. They are smaller and have a backlight.

Yeah that's what I was thinking, either a Gameboy, Advanced or SP. I used to have an Advanced when I was a kid, never had an SP but yeah the light looks pretty cool.

Any ideas for games? Apart from the classic Pokémon ones?

Advanced is okay. SP is better cause good luck finding cheap peripherals for a gameboy like a light etc...


Games wise, pokemon, golden sun, mario golf or tennis if you are into that, advanced wars and some of the zelda games.


I think they make cartridges where you can load roms now. Might want to check that out.

1. Buy old smartphone for like $60 that has a physical keyboard
2. Find NES emulator
3. Find ROMS
4. Install them
5. Don't reactivate it's wireless service plan so it can't go online
5. You now have an NES in your pocket. Enjoy.

You should be able to pick one of these up pretty cheap on eBay

Raspberry pi, screen and controller. You can emulate all the gameboy stuff and much more.


That would be so flimsy, I wouldn't want to carry that whole deal in my pocket.

You can get a PSP dirt cheap, and it's really easy to get custom firmware on it. So you can load it up with emulators and PS1 games and PSP ISO's on it.

It feels more authentic than using a phone.

He doesn't want anything that can connect to the internet or a camera because silly office rules so he can't get a PSP or a DS or another phone or anything decent.
