Gizmondo? PV-1000? Apple Pippin? Gamate? What do you guys want to see get covered?

I love reading about obscure systems! Can you use some of the stuff I posted here?

I'd like to see a comprehensive Pong and Pong clone guide. SWLOVINIST (both here and at AtariAge.com) would be a good resource for that article, since he owns close to 100 of them.

I also think the ColecoVision would be a good one. I'd also like to see Atari 7800, Gizmondo, and Commodore 64 articles.

Actually the Apple Pippin would make for a great 101 article IMHO.
I'm still not sure whether I'm a kid or a squid now.

So it's looking like the ColecoVision is the current odds-on favorite, including another vote on the Racketboy Twitter feed alongside the one for the PV-1000. So it looks like it's time to start researching a little Connecticut Leather. Though since Hatta suggested it, I think I may do a piece on the Microvision in the near future as well. Ideally this website will get to all of these suggestions eventually, it will just take some time.

I'd prefer to avoid the BK and Tiger Electronics liquid crystal games, at least for the time being. Same for Game & Watch, Pong clones, and Mattel dedicated handhelds. Not because I don't think we should expand into them, but because I don't think we're ready to expand into those areas yet when there's a lot of content still left to explore in the more "traditional" video game market. But that is Racket's call.

Also, CRT, that collection is awesome.

Oh, and we do have a 3DO 101 (I wrote it as well), though it's not currently in the list of available 101s. Here's the link: http://www.racketboy.com/retro/3do/2010/05/3do-interactive-multiplayer-101-a-beginners-guide.html

like I said, mine is boxed/minty if you need pics or quotes from the box/manual, etc.

My votes are for the more mainstream ones first: Commodore 64, Atari 7800, Intellivsion, Colecovision, MSX/2/3 (?), Spectrum, and then the rest.
