    I gave it to my nephew when I was about 18 but got it back from him a couple of years ago. It's since been souped up with lots of upgrades (RGB SCART output, FM sound, 60Hz etc) and now has pride of place in my living room :)

    Some classic games on the good old Master System. Mines is the original European shape with Hang On built in and the hidden Snail game — which gets bloody hard in later levels.

    Practically a Game Boy. I think Kirby's Dream Land 2 was one of the first games I played on it, along with Super Mario Land 2 and LoLo's Adventure (1 or 2? I don't remember).
    If Handhelds don't count, my first console was a C64. If that still doesn't count since it's a computer, my first console was a SNES. :D
    However the first console I bought from my own money was the Wii (which was stolen by strangers so I bought another one). Then I bought the Wii U and finally the Switch.
    Never owned any Microsoft or Sony console.
    Also the Game Boy Color was the latest Nintendo handheld I owned. I completely skipped on the GBA and DS until I bought a New 3DS XL (for hacking reasons).

    I had plenty of fun with a SEGA GameGear though when I was young. I just had 4 or 5 f*cking games for it but man that backlight was amazing back then.
    (Unfortunately the batterie consumption was "amazing" as well.)

    Fairly certain mine was either a hand-me-down NES or new Game Boy Pocket (Silver). Can't recall which came first.

    Excellent - always preferred the design of the Master System 1 but still having my original childhood console trumps that for me (even if the design etc is inferior).

    Totally agree, admittedly part of it is probably sentiment, you'd expect that. But I still use all of my old systems, even the CD-i lol, which is why I'm glad I kept all of mine growing up. It'd be bloody expensive trying to replace them all now.

    xbox2 maybe but I have never had my own console (with the exception of xbox2 which my friend lent me) but my first game console is a virtual reality helmet, as I like to dive into the world of virtual or augmented reality. CV Development company provides such an opportunity to enjoy gaming proccess in many ways and I tried it and got a pleasure^_^ I suppose I like playing VR more than xbox or even PS4, that's all.

    I was actually born into a family of gamers. We owned an NES, a Genesis, a 2600, and a Gameboy. My grandfather owned a video store back in the day, so we had all sorts of home entertainment. We also had a Win95 PC that my dad inherited from his office, so I grew up on DOS classics as well.

    Yay, someone else who started with an ancient system :P

    I hadn’t used mine in almost 40 years, but I had to hook it up for an article I was writing. Still worked perfectly. Man things were built to last in the old days :D

    We only now have the second color pong machine. The first one was better. :)
