What console did you start gaming with, and roughly what year was it?

I've just been curious about when you mods started gaming and with what console.
"Get good".....it's funny how people who have never been shot at in real life tend to make those statements.

It was a PlayStation, early 2000s - started with FFIX and stayed up all day and night playing it. I wasn't allowed to have video games so I didn't have an opportunity to develop a true interest until my late teens. Before that, I only got to dabble with games when I visited a friend's house.
Totally puppies.

Either the Atari 2600 or a Commodore 64 - sometime around 1983-84 if I had to guess.
if($it !== 'broke') { dontFix($it); }

My brother and I got an NES in 1991. We'd play TMNT3 and the SMB trilogy all the time. =p

I got a Game Boy shortly after they first came out (with the awesome robot hand box), and a SNES a few years later. N64 was the first console I really went full-steam on though.
I maintain that chaos is the future and beyond it is freedom.
Confusion is next and next after that is the truth.

Sega's Master System with the original Sonic the Hedgehog back in '94 or so.

My mother used to sit me down and have me watch her play The Legend of Zelda on the NES when I was 2 years old (so roughly 1989, as I was born in December of '86), and continued to do so with other games she played. My father also played video games as well, so I was pretty started on the NES and raised on it (and the SNES). I remember playing Ninja Gaiden, Metal Gear (one that has obviously stuck with me to this day), Metroid, Duck Tales, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Kid Icarus, etc., along with some much less remembered games such as The Adventures of Bayou Billy, T&C Surf Designs: Wood & Water Rage, and Silver Surfer (a game I plan on using to challenge my future kids when they ask for huge things they probably don't need: "Dad, can I have a new car?" "Sure, if you can finish one full level on Silver Surfer for the NES.").

Sega in 94 and GameBoy Color in 2000.
I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.
