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.

Mine was the original PONG, unless you don't count that as a console. Then it would be the Atari 2600.
