NES
Don't remember getting it, it just always seemed to be there.

SNES
My mum bought me a SNES from a second hand game shop after mistakenly buying a SNES game for me and then realising it didn't work on the NES.

Nintendo 64
It belonged to my little brother but I played Mario 64 for him cause he was too young to play it himself.

Xbox 360
When my brother got the Xbox One, he gave me his old 360 and all his games. Many an hour was spent playing Mass Effect and rediscovering my love of video games.

Ps4
I got it primarily for the PSVR after trying out my brother's Oculas Rift or whatever its called and becoming hooked on virtual reality games.

Nintendo Switch
Mario Odyssey, Zelda Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Skyrim. All playable on what is essentially a tablet that you can plug into your TV. It's like magic.

Xbox One X
Not technically mine, I bought it for my fiancé for Christmas but he doesn't really play video games so I'm kind of claiming it.

GAME BOY ultra

that's where it ends
i smoked a doob and realized that productivity and entertainment were FOREIGN and useless to an aspiring single minded person. They wasted many years of my life ...staring at a screen. ..and my paranoid (*and at this point completely alienated by dominating competition) mind thought that it was outside calm aggression numbing my critical faculties and killing MY LIFETIME. ..so i quit.

Haven't really "returned" since.

And it's still kinda essentially (*unless shared in time) a waste of lifetime.

Even the creativity and opportunity of timing is lost on these games because they ask follow the same structure of first person interactive (*which is something I'd right would be INCREDIBLE way back in 1990: thank god it's been used to death)

My parents had a ZX Spectrum 48k and 128k both of which I played on as a young kid. The ones I've actually owned in order of when I got them are:

- NES x 2
- SNES
- PS1 x 2
- Xbox x 4
- Saturn
- Gamecube
- Xbox 360 x 2
- Gameboy Advance SP
- Nintendo 64
- PS3 x 3
- Nintendo Wii
- PS4
- Raspberry Pi emulator
-
Mini SNES

I've also owned a custom upright arcade machine packed with emulators. The ones in bold italics I still own today.

If I had to pick a favourite out of all of them it would be the SNES with the PS1 a close second.

The mini SNES is not in italics. Did you get shot of it? Those things are like gold dust.

I still have all my game systems but the Coleco Telstar.

The Atari 2600 is the only one that doesn't work. I thought about getting it repaired since

I still have most of the original cartridges and the newer models with the built in games

don't have some of the cartridges I have like Lock And Chase.

Good thing is, the Atari 7800 plays 2600 games. That's why I refuse to buy a PS4. Most of my game library is PS3/PS2. Why spend all that loot for a system that's not backwards compatible? Fuck that shit.

Yeah, I sold it to my brother (face value) ... it was really good but my Raspberry Pi does exactly the same thing. It was a bit of an impulse buy as I saw SNES and thought "gotta have it".

I've heard they're hard to come by but where I am (south east UK) my local Game have had a couple of the shelf ever since they came out and they had plenty for pre-order.

I tried to get one but Gamestop wouldn't even let me preorder it because their allocation was full. I ended up getting one from Argos on day of release but only because I used to go to school with one of the girls who work there and she put it aside for me.

And after all that I haven't even opened it yet.

I got into some of the old point and click games a while ago but took a break from them when the Switch came out. The Blade Runner and Indiana Jones games were particularly good.

My original NES which I've had since I was 3 is still in perfect working order. Same with my SNES and N64 and none of those were new when I got them. And they still work 20 - 25 years later.

My SNES and NES are both still working to, though I guess the chip board connectors on the carts would wear out over time, hence I limit my use of them. I've had two PS3s die though. I assume the more complex internals have something to do with that but who knows, maybe not.

...OK, everyone who's got games for Retro consoles, and a PC, and wants to relive their childhood - get ELIVE CD. I've posted about this 2 times before here already - check it out: www.elivecd.org . It includes a ton of emulators out-of-the-box, and is a pretty goddamn sexy OS in general.
