Nah.. they're too damn small!

Even SpikeDislike is mostly unplayable on my Pebble. A single-button game, but so damn fiddly!!

I really don't get these types of things; most people have phones - are they really too big/inconvenient nowadays to pull out for a quick game?

For me, for retro games I use my old subnotebook with a 7" screen. Perfect for running emulators for the 2600 and the other oldies I like. Have mini joypads for it, too.

Otherwise, I uses things like Atari Flashback (which I buy the new version every year) and the like to hook to my TV.

@Kuran. Now that I can understand - it's how Atari games were designed to be played; on a big tv/monitor.

Playing games on a watch really isn't going to give a positive play experience (as Jay stated, even with a one key game). And it will have absolutely nothing to do with the real Atari anyway, as they don't actually exist anymore.

This was the only game I ever played on a watch and I was sad when the watch finally broke. It was a TWO button. :c)

I should note I still have a nice CRT television solely for use with the retro consoles, and my TI-99/4A. LCD screens look like crud for the old stuff.

I still have a CRT for my PC Engine.
