The first console I bought with money I had earned(not allowances) was the N64. I was 15 and had worked a military summer hire program with the Air Force for the whole summer.(like 4 hours a day a couple times a week) I barely made 400 dollars and I blew 300 of it on the N64 and Super Mario 64.

Technically I "bought" a SNES at a thrift shop when I was 12, but it was really my parents money.

To the Genesis and SNES guys, how old are you? I turned 30 this year, I would think 16 is the youngest age (maybe 14) where people even have the ability to buy a console with their own money, and mine was ps2 in 2000 when I was 16 at my first job. Do we really have 38-40 year olds frequenting these boards? Not commenting negatively just curious and more power to 'em if so.

I started gaming at 6. I'll be 39 in July and will be a gamer until I die.

When I was in high school I saved my allowance for a few years (until I stopped getting allowance when I had job in grade 10).

During those years I bought these consoles and games for them.

Also although games are a bit expensive. Compared to a lot of other time consuming hobbies (Say snowboarding for example). They are actually quite cheap. Of course they are still a more expensive endeavor when compared to books, movie watching, etc.

GameCube was my first. Went in and dropped about 2 months of paper route money.

Thank God my sister had a license and took me (I was only 12 or 13). If it had been my parents there would have been no way I left eb games with the amount of stuff I bought.

Pretty sure they suckered me into getting 5 games and 3 controllers and 2 memory cards. Don't regret it one bit though. I loved that thing.

Fast forward about 13 years and it's still hooked up to my TV. I play it about every three months.

But since then I bought every system every gen.

Dear fanboys; get over yourselves. Video games are not the most important thing in life.

On the weekend the Genesis was released.

Good times, good times...
If a game's not good enough for a physical release, then it's not good enough for me.
Official KH3 Aerith, apparently? How...?

do handhelds count? if so the original 3ds. if not, the wii u. when i was younger i never bought them since i was too young to work and i didnt really get an allowance. all the way up to the ps3 and 360 everything was always a gift of some sort. i got a 360 for christmas and a ps3 for my birthday that next year.

it wasnt till the wii u came out and i bought it at launch that i got my first console with my own money.
