Those ones were popular when I was younger, and I'm 15 now, so it wasn't that long ago ^^

To be honest the first one i had was a SNES, which was only the one before that. Although i did play Mario on an Atari before that, long before that! LOL

The Gamecube has been my favorite so far :)

It shows how much technology has improved since then :D

But I never really played on anything Nintendo, I was more of a PS person ^^ I had my own Play Station, and I used to play on Pandemonium (or however you spell it) and other strange games like that ^_^

I just remember one of my cousins having that Nintendo I mentioned, so that's how I know about it :D

That's the oldest game console I used to play on. The cool thing is I still have it in my room with about 15 Super Nintendo games. :D

illuminati, it's a good thread, but it's unneccessary to say the nowadays consoles are wimpy.
My PS1 is over 10 years old, and still works like a dream, my N64 gave up without reason.

1981 even I think :D
Atari seriously had some sexy consoles. I must say I like the look of the Wii, too.

Not all of them!
I know many people with their 4 - 5 year old PS2's still working fine.
Mine is 4 years old, and can read scratched DVD's without any trouble, it's still working very good.

Thats the year i was born LOL

The one I had must have been after that then. It belonged to my sister. I was about 4. I loved it, but then i didnt play games again until SNES.

I started really late... On an Atari ST1040 I think... which was ancient already at the time I got it. Oh wait - I also had an MSX at some point :) Ahhh.. The good old days...

yEAH, I played TR 1 on my Saturn, not that bad for the machines specs!(I sold the thing), but I continued playing on my PS1.
Dreamcast is cool, I like small consoles with huge power.
