    You can include handheld devices as well.

    When I was a kid we were too poor for an Atari or Nintendo, but my aunt would sometimes lend us her NES for a week or two at a time and that was pretty sweet. When I was in grade 3 and got my first paper route, I saved up some money and bought myself an N64. I think N64 is still probably one of my favourite systems. After that I got a Playstation and modded it to play copied games. Every weekend we would rent 2 or 3 games and make copies of them, it was pretty sweet. I also had the PS2 and XBOX, but I sold the XBOX after a while because I didn't like it. I bought a 360 a few years ago but it got the RROD a few days after the warranty expired so I sold it for a few bucks and didn't have a system for a while. Now I have a PS3, but I mostly use it as a media server. The only game I play is Skyrim.

    At some point I owned a red original Gameboy and a yellow Gameboy colour as well.

    So how about you?

    LetLovinTakeHold Cuz it will if you let it

    NES, Game Boy, Sega Genesis, PS1. After PS1 the games started to get to complicated and took up too much time.

    my brother got a Coleco for Christmas in the early 80's. and I remember begging him for a chance to play Donkey Kong, I think my other brother bought himself an Atari a while later that he took to college with him. We had a commodore 64 computer for awhile and then when I was older maybe late 80's or early 90's I got a super Nintendo from my sister for Christmas. After that, I got s playstation, than playstation 2. We bought our daughter a gameboy advance in red.Then we had an xbox 360 (that broke after a year) we bought a Wii for our boys when it came out(now my youngest uses it mostly to watch netflix) We have a playstation 3 , my boys each have a vita, we have a Nintendo 3ds. Oh! And a gamecube we bought at a garage sale a few years ago.whew! That is a lot! We love gaming here. I think we will be getting the new xbox because my boys live minecraft.It is either that or the new playstation for Christmas.

    Growing up, I had an NES, an Atari 2600 and 7800, a Game Boy and a few different variants of it, a Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Super Nintendo, N64 and a PS1. When I was a teenager, we got a PS2 and Gamecube. We weren't really well off financially or anything, it's just that my dad loved video games as much as my sister and I did. I even had a Virtual Boy at one point. No idea what happened to it, though. Sometime around when I was a teenager, my dad bought a Sega Master System and a few games at a garage sale. I was the only person I knew who ever had one of those.

    Today, I own all of those and a bunch more. I'm a collector.

    I once had an Atari too, when I was around 10 years old. But I wasn't a big fan, I guess it already felt a bit limited at the time. Then i got a Nintendo64. I got it relatively late but it was mainly for the splitscreen multiplayer fun. I had lots of fun with Ocarina of time too and from then on I actually really turned around from pc gaming to console gaming. Got an Xbox and then an Xbox360.

    Ocarina of Time and Goldeneye 007 were by far my two most played N64 games. I liked Diddy Kong Racing as well, but nothing at the time beat Goldeneye for multiplayer!

    Yeah, you already named 3 of the only 4 games I had on N64 haha. Still played the crap out of it. Mostly Mario kart, Goldeneye and Ocarina of time. 4th was Star wars episode one pod racing which I got with the console and was quite fun too at the time. Never bothered to get more games for it. I was so late when I got a N64 I only bought it for Goldeneye and Mariokart multiplayer. Wasn't interested in getting a lot more out of it :p

    Another game that I wasted a lot of time on as a kid was the original Halo for xbox. We would bring the tv from my bedroom down to the basement, and put the two TVs back to back. you were able to link 2 xboxs together with an ethernet cable and play split screen on 2 tvs, so we would get 4 vs 4.

    it was kind of funny, because we would turn the sound off so that you couldn't hear footsteps from the other persons tv when someone was sneaking up behind someone else. my parents would come downstairs and there would just be 8 of us sitting in silence playing video games... they probably thought we were on drugs or something.

    I enjoyed a lot of games on the first xbox. It slightly angers me no one had the same great experience with Prince of Persia: Sand of time :D It is easily the best Prince of persia game but to me it has become one of the BEST gaming experiences. Great difficulty, awesome motions (especially for that time), superb mix of good story, puzzling and action. And of course the setting looked very nice, the atmosphere emerged me in the game from beginning to end. I never enjoyed Halo to the max, I guess because I only played the single player of the first.
