What Video Game Generation did you start gaming in?

Started with the first generation when my parents got us an Atari Ultra Pong game. Though really got hooked on the second gen spending many hours playing Pitfall, Carnival and Q-bert on the Coleco.

Really interesting where everyone has started, especially *very* early on.

right at the end of the 1st, going into the second. i remember having the pong game and my brother and i playing it all the damn time.
young enough to still enjoy being a ass, old enough not to give a damn about how it makes you feel.

I was born into a house with a 2600, though by the time I was old enough to make sense of what I was doing the NES and SMS had moved in alongside it.

Sort of the cross over of the 3rd and 4th. I played a lot of Sega Master System at around the same time of the start of the Megadrive (Genesis) era.

But the first I owned was a Sega Megadrive.
PLAYING - Torchlight II (PC), Walking Dead (360), Okami HD (PS3)
MOST WANTED - FFvsXIII, GTAV, Ni No Kuni, Tales Of Xillia, Lightning Returns

Atari....Pitfall , bowling, football, ...other such

Then I got NES in 1990 when I was 5. That changed everything.
