    Original GameBoy with Pokémon Blue! Wasn't the latest and greatest at the time (I believe that spot was claimed by the GameBoy Advance but it ended up being the DS by the time I caught up to speed with emerging tech) but my siblings wanted me to start from the beginning and work my way up like they did, and I'm kinda glad they did; that sense of technology slowly improving as I completed various games and grew up was quite rewarding and exciting. In fact its still happening today.

    An edit:
    If you haven't noticed yet this focuses on handhelds, that's because at heart I'm always a handheld gamer though I did play some home consoles along the way!

    That’s a great console! I just bought a used one and I realized emulators are not even a liiiiiiiitle bit close to the full game boy experience

    Yeah, I still have a soft spot for the original GameBoy (And my copy of Pokémon Blue, which is around somewhere in my bedroom), emulators are cool but the true experience is something special.

    A PlayStation 2. First games I remember having for the system were Shrek 2, Burnout 3: Takedown, and The Spongebob Squarepants Movie. I remember sitting down to play it for the first time and randomly mashing the buttons on the controller, because that's what I had seen people do in cartoons. While my tastes shifted to be a little more Nintendo-oriented over the years (particularly around the 8th grade, right around the time I got a 3DS), I was glad to be able to play some PS2 exclusives like Gran Turismo 3 and the Kingdom Hearts games as a kid.

    Prior to getting a PS2, I was big into educational PC games and spent a lot of time on my parents' old Windows ME desktop; not sure if that qualifies as a "console" or not, though. Was especially fond of the Reader Rabbit games.

    Game Boy with a Hong Kong roms cart. Mortal Kombat was one of the games on it. Terrible port, but I played the hell out of it for ages.

    And I'm very grateful for this '' Famiclone '' because it was thanks to him that a child of the 2000s can meet classics from the 80s / 90s like MegaMan, Contra, Super Mario Bros, Kirby, Ninja Gaiden and among others

    Being ancient, mine was an Adman Grandstand MK3 Pong clone. Though first “proper” console with interchangeable cartridges was the almost as ancient Philips Videopac G7000.
    (Still have them, along with all of my other systems.)

    Gameboy Pocket from Nintendo's second wind of marketing around '97. Infinitely better screen than the OG Brick, better battery life, and pocket sized! Home console? The PSOne. The actual "PSOne" the smaller redesign, since it was out after the time of the Gamecube and that was what I really wanted but NOOOOO.

    I think the first thing I came in contact with was the atari 2600, although my parents swear that it wasn't that. Though everything I can remember matches exactly what the atari 2600 had and looked like.
    So unless there was something identical back then in the 80's, I don't know what it was.

    My first was one of these, back when it was the hot new thing...

    ...yeah, I'm a lot older than most of you.
    After that it was a home micro rather than a console - a 48k ZX Spectrum (which I still own), and I didn't own another console until the Megadrive came out in the late 80's. Since then I've owned multiple consoles from each generation.

    Now that I've had a moment to think about it I think I had some of the earlier ones (Firemen and Octopus)
