The 3DS, its the only portable gaming system I've ever had and I just bought one 2 weeks ago.
I only have 3 games for it - Super Mario Kart on the DS, Sonic Generations and Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. So...if anyone would like to offer suggested other games on the system or the DS, I'm happy to consider anything (I MIGHT get a PSP, a PS Vita or any of the many models of Gameboy - I don't have the means to play any other portable gaming system - but not just yet as I'm more concerned with the library of games first). Also, don't recommend Tetris. I already want that because I simply find the idea of Tetris on a portable gaming system "unfuckupable" and I like Tetris as a game.

Ima be honest, I never really liked handheld gaming. The screens were always too small and/or dark! But back in the day I had a GBC, GBA, and PSP. Out of all of them I think I liked my GBC the best (because Pokemon lol). I bought a 3DS XL back in 2013 (just for Pokemon X) and it was okay, but Pokemon X is literally the only game I ever got for it

I always enjoyed my 3DS, my Vita, and my PSP the most. I have a Switch, but its not as fun for me honestly.

Really enjoyed my PSP back in the day and wish I still had it. Good times of using the GTA Liberty City Stories exploit to downgrade the firmware to 1.5 and run emulators. Then eventually custom firmware became a thing which removed basically all security and allowed you to run unsigned code at your leisure along with the latest games.
Used to think it was GBAsp, but after learning the technical spec behind it I acquired a soft spot for GBC, but I do also like PSP a lot, too bad the controls they gave it suck. It can still acces 4chan doe and I got a feeling it may also be able to run spacehey, but I did not check it yet.

Gameboy was my first handheld when I was a child. I loved the gameboy, gameboycolor, gameboyadvance, but my all time favorite was the gameboy advance sp, mainly because it was a little more portable. (And easier to hide from the parents after bedtime :p)
I own a 3DS but I really couldn't be as consistent with play time with the DS systems.
Now that I have a switch, I'm obsessed.
Cannot wait to see what the Steam handheld will bring to the table since I mainly own PC games.

For ease of use, nostalgia, and an amazing library, the PSP. Being able to easily emulate GBA and PS1 games makes it a no brainer, but also having Ratchet and Clank, Tony Hawk's Underground, Daxter and ATV Offroad Fury Pro, all in one place is awesome!

This might me controversial, but PS Vita.

I will always love the Nintendo DS. I still have my metallic rose one that was gifted to me for Christmas. It only came with super Mario bros though. I eventually bought more games, lost a few, borrowed a few, but overall I have such good memories with it. Was actually recently looking into buying some of the games I lost as a kid or just never got to fully own(warioware touched, as well as others I played all the time).
