What was your first ever game console?


With the holiday season in full swing and Christmas only hours away, I decided to use the current popularity of gaming to take a trip down memory lane.

Before PS4 and whatever the new Xbox one is called, there were simpler... more shit game consoles.
However, these were new back in those days so we didn't feel dissapointed that they didn't support downloadable content and online multi-player because that stuff didn't exist.

So what do you remember your first game console being?

Mine was a sega mastersystem. It actually wasn't given to me, it was given to my older brother one Christmas of an exact year I'm able to confirm but it was some time during the 20th century.

  • My dad bought my brothers an Atari 2600 and a Sega SG-1000 in the '80s for our home entertainment. Meanwhile, nowadays, I still have my Nintendo Game & Watch and my Nintendo Game Boy that were handed down to me by my brothers. I don't know if they still work but I keep getting offers for them. Even my brothers offered to buy them back.

  • Similar story to yours- my brother got a SNES when I was little & that was our first gaming console. The first one I bought on my own was a Playstation 2 in 2005. My collection has grown since then, lol.

    • Your point?😂 I also listen to music from decades ago. I was born in the wrong generation 🤷🏼‍♀️

    • Yeah but music from decades ago was actually good.
      Game consoles from 30 years ago? Not so much.

  • Xbox 360

    • Don't you generally use controllers for PC gaming too?
      I've got one for my laptop which isn't good enough to play the only PC game I want

    • I don't but I have a few friends that do. Could I use a controller, possibly, but most of the games I'm into would most likely be hard to use a controller on (Civilization 5, or other turn-based strategy)

  • Sega Genesis, loved that thing. Somewhere I've got a few boxes in storage that are full of old gaming stuff.

  • The first console I ever owned was I think a super Nintendo. I remember playing some Spider-Man game, donkey Kong country, and a Mario game. When I was 4 I met a new friend and he had a ps2 and the super Nintendo became obsolete because he had a Godzilla game n everything.

  • My systems so far have been hand me downs. My first was an NES, followed by an SNES, a Gameboy, a Sega Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, and the latest being a PS3. Upon getting the next system, I gave them away with the exception of the game boy which fell and broke.

    • Oh I loved crash bandicoot.
      It's hilarious they actually released the same game this year for ps4. Exactly the same just with smoothed over graphics.
      Suckers bought it up in droves.

    • I played it again with a public PS4... oldschool was better and in fact its not as good as we remember it 😂

    • Of course not because games have come so far since

  • PS1 for life!!! Doom and Duke Nukem: Time To Kill are still my favourite games. Doom and Duke will always hold a special place in gaming history for me.

      I had a ps1 at least 5 years before you were born.

    • How old were you when you got the ps2?

    • Show All
    • Rent it first. I imagine it gets old fast unless you're into the storyline.

    • I like owning so if I want to play it again it's there. I feel bored unless I have a big collection. When I get a new console I start with 6 or 7 games

  • GameCube; I was raised on Mario Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion, and that was all I needed.
