    Mine was the Atari 2600.... Gawd. I am old. ;_;

    Saying that must sound to newer generations like what people using commodore sounded to us when we were young. :'-(

    Mine was the NES we had one when I was but a wee 3 year old I vaguely remember playing Star Fox with my moms boyfriend. I rememver that because that was the first day I went potty on the toilet by standing up. Gee I was thrilled.

    The most relevent memory I have though is riding the bus home from Kindergarten and racing my sisters into the house first. Because the first one in the door was mario and the second person was Luigi. I always used the war portal to 4 ans another to 8 and died right away.

    After my Mario binge I watched the latest episode of the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.

    N64!
    I was playng PC games before that, and I have fond memories of Dark Forces and Nanotank. But I'm not sure that counts as a console. Then my big bro came to live with us (I was 8) and he got us all hyped up, buying gaming mags and watching N64 trailer videos too many times. Finally the N64 came out and Mario64 and Lylat Wars (Starfox64 to you) was our crack.

    Then there was Turok 2 but I didn't have the patience to see that to the end. I'd like to give that one another go. Then we got OoT and nothing else really mattered.

    That would be the SNES. I bought it off my brother once he got tired of it.

    The first console we had in my family would be the Amiga 500. I have fond memories of that that go way back:

    It was different. Gaming consoles and computers were very different back then, and the Amiga was a merge between the two. It released in 1987 by Commodore as a kind of sequel to the Commodore 64. Its capabilities were ahead of its time – a separate GPU, stereo sound, etc. The entire computer was housed in the keyboard, which had several ports at the back for attaching anything from printers to extra floppy disk drives.

    It had a large range of games, but also a lot of software. My brother programmed his own games on the machine, compiled them and copied them onto floppies. You could create music, and even render 3D.

    One of my favorite games was Superfrog:

    Thank you so much. That was very insightful. I've heard of Amiga before but I didn't know much about it. Sounds like it was pretty cool to own one back in the day.
