Atari 2600 was my first console, but I also played games on my Dad's computer. Remember floppy disks?


My mom bought a Macintosh, 5" screen, 1' deep lol. Played Oregon trail(I think) and some game on an island that I can't remember.

Xbox one, PS3, Wii
Play for the games not the evil corporation, they're all evil in the end.

I remember playing pong for .25 a game and thought it was great!!! My first video game system was the Mattel Intelivision. Which looked so much better than the Atari. I had this system for the longest of any other system. Hours and hours playing Night Stalker!!!

Gen 2 I think (was born in '91). Can't remember what I had played first, whether it was my mom's boyfriend's SNES or the NES my grandma gave me when I was 3.

Got into gaming with the ps1, then got really into gaming with the n64 with goldeneye and zelda etc, plus me and my buddy would buy PC gamer magazine in the uk, and there used to be a cd with tons of demos with it, then the rest is history

Got a GameCube, sold it for a ps2, sold that to get a xbox, and never looked back on the xbox brand apart from my 3Ds
