    First device of which I could play video games on was an Amiga 500. Not sure that it counts as a console as it was marketed as a Home computer, but they were typically primarily used as gaming machines.

    First console which I then owned personally was a PS1 which was bought for my birthday in 1997. :D Came with Crash Bandicoot, Battle Arena Toshinden, ESPN Extreme Games and X2. :D

    I count all of my old computers (Atari, Commodore, Sinclair, Amstrad, MSX) as consoles, they were as you say mainly used for games, though I did dabble in programming, art and digital video.

    Well, normally I just say systems rather than consoles when referring to my collection, because consoles just doesn’t cover it all.

    Loved (still do) the Amiga though, so many happy memories with that.

    I remember making a golden wedding video for a friends parents anniversary. They were in tears when they saw their old photos and videos they thought they’d never be able to watch again. Such a versatile system (with an add-on or twenty :D)

    My first ever console was the Game Boy Color. I remember I had to save up for months to be able to buy it!

    But, as the first system I ever played games on, then that title goes to the ZX Spectrum 128k. That was my first foray into the gaming world.

    If it counts, pc, don't ask which was the first game but I remember playing jill of the jungle, commander keen 4 and 6, wolfenstein 3d and other old classics and even nes games via nesticle.
    If this thread is discriminating the master race then gba sp (101 model) with yu-gi-oh dungeon dice monsters and shortly after I bought metroid fusion.

    That would be unfair, I’d include PC if it were up to me. I still remember my very first PC. An Olivetti 386SX, ah how I loved DOS. (No, that’s not sarcasm, I hated Windows to begin with.)

    The Super Nintendo with Mario All-Stars, a Basketball game and a Ice-Hockey game I believe. Had loads of fun with Mario All-Stars and I fondly remember borrowing Donkey Kong Country 2 and 3 from my neighbours. :)

    Convert the bottom half into a GameBoy "Micro", great project to pass the time and a great GameBoy Advance when it's finished

    Ahhh the memories...
    It was Agust 23 2010 and my first day in Elementary, it's funny becuse in that time the DSi was among the trends, my cousins had DS Lites(I remember one was pink and had club penguin DS) and other cousins had an aquamarine DSi so I asked one to my uncle, who went to NY days later after I requested it, well the point was that my parents had signed me up for a school I didn't wanted to go to, so to bribe me my uncle gave to my dad a DSi XL Navy blue to get me out of bed on school day. It totaly worked. I remember Playing it during breakfast eating my cereal while stomping on Koopas in World 1-1 of New Super Mario Bros., then i brought to school and made up a good impression with my classmates. It ws the best thing that happened that year.
    I remember the first 3 games i got apart from NSMB were: Iron Man 2 (It had a videogame if you didnt knew it), Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (I miss you friend ;_; ) and LEGO Harry Potter Years 1-4

    Fun fact: In November 2016, the person who did the cleaning in my house stole it with Pokémon SoulSilver Still inside after quitting the job (FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF)

    The original NES, with Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest, Adventure of Island, and The Adventure of Link. Believe it or not, I didn't even have the first Super Mario Bros. that generally came with the console, however I do own the game now.
    Then the Original GameBoy with Tetris.

    One of those game and watch the came from Japan, but were made in China. I had a red soccer one that had you traverse the soccer field with a player until you scored, while avoiding the ball to exit the field and my brother, a yellow one where one had to cross a river on a balloon.

    They were the best presents ever.

    Then came a famiclone with 300 games in it (with great games in it, like Contra, Super Mario, Ice Climber, etc) that looked like a SNES.

    I truly miss those times. And my brother as well. He had a case of stupid and is now a hopeless mess.

    had an NES and SNES technically but never played that. It was mostly for my brother, who was older. I first really started playing with the n64. playing blast corps, diddy kong racing, mario party 1, and Super Mario 64. Also hexen:hrth:
