    When the Atari 2600 first game out it was called by the name of Atari VCS (Video Computer System) perhaps you had an early model and that is why your parents are confused.

    The Gamecube with Luigi's Mansion, Super Mario Sunshine and Melee. I have many fond memories with it. RIP my Melee disc.

    I didn't get a console for a long time. I grew up on SNES, N64, GBA, and DS games with emulators.
    My first console was a New 3DS that I got when I was 14.

    I had a PC before any console. After some time asking for it I got a GBC as my first console ever. My brother and me got a Sega Megadrive a few months before the next generation came out. Still ended up playing it a lot with my brother and friends.

    I always kept on going back to the PC (when it was quite hard to install games, apply patches, etc) and to the GBC.

    Edit: based on release dates we first got the Megadrive, but it was shared console. The GBC was truly my own console.

    The first one I properly owned myself was a silver Game Boy Pocket. I got it along with Link's Awakening and a Smurf game for my birthday or Christmas, can't remember.
    My older brother had the NES and SNES that I played before I got my very Game Boy though, so my first console that I played was the NES :)

    Mine was the Atari 2600. My cousin gave it to me when he got an NES. I then got that for Christmas the year after.

    The first console I ever played as a kid was a SNES.

    I think the first console I was ever personally given was a Gameboy Color.

    And the first console I ever bought, with my own money, was the original XBOX I think :unsure: It was after the 360 came out, and after our first XBOX my dad got died. They were super cheapo at Gamestop, like $50-$70 at the time, so I ended up just buying a replacement with my own money.

    If it counts as a console, it was Coleco Head-to-Head Football, I think. Or Atari 2600. I got one in 5th grade, one in 6th grade, can't remember which was first. My cousin got Atari Pong a year before I got the 2600 and I was jealous until it ruined their TV.

    A model 1 Sega Genesis with Sonic 2. My mom gave it to me when I was a kid, and it's what started my love of video games.

    PC master race ;O;

    The first game-capable device we actually owned was an Atari 800 XL, and then x86 devices ever since.

    My first console was the Pokemon Yellow edition Gameboy Color.

    The first consoles I played were the GameBoy and NES.
