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?

My first actual games console was the SNES I think.

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.
