The Sega Master System was Sega's first console and was released in the fall of 1985. At the time, as a kid, I was working in the electronics department of a department store, so I logged a LOT of hours playing Hang-On, which was one of the pack in games the system included (with Safari Hunt and light gun). Though discontinued in the US in 1991 to make way for the Sega Genesis, the Master System was still being sold in parts of the planet in 2010. Besides the light gun that came with the system, it also used the worlds only pair of 3D glasses that didn't make you look like an idiot when you wore them. One game, Missile Defense 3-D actually required both gun and glasses. The bulk of the games were on cartridge, while very few were on HuCards. The Master System launched in the US for $200...
