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.


my grandma had an IBM and there was a bunch of games but there was this one where you raced but the only way you could move was guessing the word below that's how I feel I got descent with my words lol.

Atari baby!

I always thought there was a generation before that though? :/ Anyways, little back story seeing as everyone else has - the Atari was my dad's. Then we got a Nintendo, MegaDrive... and so on and so forth. And that as they say, it that.

But looking at those poll options, my word does kind of shock me with the amount of time I've been gaming. Not enough to stop me any time soon, but wow, I've been gaming pretty much my entire life. :D

Played the s*** out of my Atari 2600 and Commodore 64. Had a huge stack of C64 games that I couldn't even figure out how to run...so I just stuck to Wheel of Fortune and various Solitaire games. Then I got an NES and my mom and I would play Zelda for hours.

The first time my grandma saw me playing Mortal Kombat was pretty hilarious too.

I remember playing tetris as a toddler, on my Mom's NES... Grew up from there to the SNES, and so on, but I also remember going to friends houses to enjoy the cool kids games on the PS1, and so on.

Incidentally, it was MY gramma that got me Mortal Kombat.

If people want the Wii U Cheaper, and the cost of the White model is already the price of the 3DS XL, are they saying they want it the same price as a 3DS?

Gen 3 and i find it hard to believe that large of a portion of a portion of this board started in gen1.


Well, that's because this type of thread attracts a different group of people that normally don't post in the diarrhea-a-thon known as the Xbox One boards.

It also attracts the "me" monster, I'm afriad.



"NES? That's nothing! I'VE been gaming since the Atari 2600!"

"The 2600? Pul-ease... that thing's a graphical juggernaut compared to what I grew up with! I started gaming with the Odyssey!"

"You're complaining about the Odyssey!? That thing woulda been a Godsend for ME! I'm William Higinbotham! All the rest of you are petty noobs!"




It's a sight, man.
