8th. One day I will tell you all about the true classics. And at that point, I'll be better than you.

Somewhere around the third or fourth gen. SNES is the first gen I really remember, but there's evidence I played the family NES before then.

I'm a 5th Generation guy. My first system was the N64.

Even though I came in on the 5th generation, I still played and own an Atari because of my dad. Actually I played my N64 so much back then that it remains the system I have the most games for. I think it was over 76 games I have for it.

Third.

The NES was my first console.

I started in the fifth generation, and my first system was either a N64, or a Game Boy Color. I'm not sure which came first, but I remember playing Pokemon Blue.

My first video game machines were the NES with "Super Mario Bros. + Duck Hunt" and a Commodore 64... I cannot remember my first game (or most of the games I had) for it sadly.

The fourth generation. The SNES was my first system.

4th Gen for me. My gaming began with the three Donkey Kong Country games on the SNES and I look back upon those days with great memories. DKC2 is still the best platformer I've ever played.

The first game I ever played was Space Invaders, circa 1980 or so. A few years later I got my own Atari 2600. I remember the video game crash, I could get cartridges at the local drugstore for a quarter a piece.

NES release was absolutely magical. My grades plummeted that year I got it for Christmas, 1987, I think.
