What Was Your First Gaming Console?

Mine was the ColecoVision. I thought that was the most awesome console back then. I hated the joysticks though. They were a pain to use. I remember this thing was quite expensive too. $300.00 if I remember correctly?

Mine was a Binatone TV Master Mk6. There were dozens of these type of machines in the '70s.

I think my first console was an Atari 2600. Probably around 7 yrs old. The first console that I loved was my NES!

I think I rented the NES w/Super Mario so many times that my parents decided it would be cheaper just to buy it for me.

Intellivision for me, but my Vic 20 could play games if you programmed them your self.

My first video game consoles were hand-me-downs from my Dad - Colecovision and Intellivision. But I'm a child of the late 80s and 90s so the ones I purchased new were:

NES, Super NES, Nintendo 64, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360.

Had most of the others over the years until around the N64, after that I was pretty much PC only for gaming. Kind of miss the old Vectrex and Intellivision, fun games with crappy controllers.

Atari 2600, which my dad bought before I was born (1980). Fond memories and it started the awesome 2P games my dad and I would have.

My first console was the Philips Videopac G7000 - I wanted an Atari VCS, but got this POS instead:

Earliest console's I've played / remember

Vic 20 (Parents), Atari 2600 (Grandparents), Intellivision (Console - Cousins House).

The Vic 20 would constantly over heat and freeze up. No storage / safe feature either.

1st "modern" game console parents bought for me - Nintendo Entertainment System.

I think my first was that PONG one someone posted, I was pretty young at the time.

Long before Intellivision and Colecovision anyways, and I've had both of them, and have had many consoles since to this date

The Atari 2600 was my first console. Besides playing the classic games like Space Invaders and Asteroids, I remember playing games like Dragonfire, such an awesome game, and sitting in front of the TV confused for the longest time trying to figure out what the hell I was suppose to do in the Star Wars game. :laugh:

Of course I eventually figured out what I was suppose to do in Star Wars when I got older, but as a 2-3 year old kid, I had no clue what was going on.

The original Mega Drive, not the 2 variant posted earlier. The first I owned personally is tied between the original Playstation and the Game Boy.

My family had a Pong console so that was my first experience with them, but the first console of my very own was a ColecoVision. I used to play Donkey Kong for hours at a time and later on I got the expansion module to play Atari 2600 games. It lasted me until I got my NES years later.
