    My first console was the Texas Instruments TI99/4a in 1981. After that it was the Atari 2600. Then the NES. Then Super Nintendo. Then Playstation 2 (skipped N64 and Gamecube). Then it was PS3. Then I took about a 10 year haitus from consoles and mostly played PC games. Then I got back into consoles and bought a Wii U. Hacked the Wii U and had almost every game Nintendo has ever made to date. My last console to date is a PS4 on 5.05.

    A Famiclone with a lot of games but i only remember 3
    Super Mario Bros.
    Used to play it a lot but i always lost at level 8-3 never got to see the final level since the console broke
    Circus Charlie
    Mario Bros. but instead Mario and Luigi i played as a red or green Teletubbie
    there where a lot of games on a cartidge and when you took the cartidge there were other games built in, that console made me like the retro games so im grateful
    If we are talking about original consoles then my first console was a GBA with a baseball game i still have it somewhere

    The Joystick 30-in-1. It was probably one of the most worthless plug and play games ever but dude as a four year old I had so much fun.
    Literally half the games were lawn mowing games and Pole Position clones tho

    also a picture of it

    No, this new consoles will be their old school consoles in the years to come. We just saw the start of it. Their feeling will be the same as yours as time goes by..

    being only 13, my first console was a PlayStation 2. The first game was Crash Twinsanity.


    Man, I love the soundtrack.

    Some do, even though my nephew has a Switch and an Xbox One, he loves it when they visit us and he gets to play some of my collection, even back to the Atari 2600.

    I’ll grant you, not everyone will. Having being spoiled with today’s realistic 3D worlds. Not everyone will look past the basic graphics of the old systems and just enjoy the gameplay.

    My first console was the Colecovision. My grandparents gave it to us for Christmas. I remember playing Q-Bert and Smurfs.

    Colecovision was my favorite console when I was a kid.
    I also loved The Smurfs & Q-Bert, also Donkey Kong played just like the arcade and Jumpman Jr. & Squish'em Sam was my favorites too.

    My first memory of a console in our household was the Artari 2600, I remember playing Pac-Man for hours on that thing. :lol:

    Of all the systems I've owned through my life (and still have them all) the ColecoVision is one I never had. But I do want to buy one for my collection, so I keep an eye out for a decent one t a decent price.

    If interested in the Colecovision, do not get the At Games Flashback version (sort of goes without saying). The controls are okay but at least a few games run slow/fast and have garbled audio; I've heard it uses a system on a chip. There was some work to replace the ROM chip to play other games, but AFAIK that's no real generic solution. A shame otherwise because in some ways I prefer the Colecovision to the Atari 2600. :/

    Cheers for the heads up. For expanding my system collection I’d never consider anything but the original hardware.


    Don’t get me wrong, I do use emulators and occasionally, but that would normally be just if I’m away from home and only take my Switch or Vita with me.

    Growing up and having the majority of systems from the 70’s onward, I just don’t think anything compares to playing on the original systems. That’s why I still have all of mine.


    Emulation, at least good emulation, on a good system has the potential to do amazing things. Beyond even what the original hardware was capable of. But for me, nothing beats the original hardware, it’s controllers and a good CRT TV. It’s just how they were meant to be.


    I do have NES/SNES Minis, PlayStation Classic and the latest AtGames Mega Drive and I’ll probably buy a C64 Mini. But those are just for the sake of collecting (can’t help it ) they’re all still in their boxes, where they’ll likely remain forever.

    The Colecovsion was the first system to have the steering wheel (for the game Turbo). Also they made an adapter for playing Atari 2600 games. Atari tried to sue, but failed.
