Intellivision or Atari 2600. Not sure. Since I was born in 84, these were actually my uncle's I think.

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 as well. I eventually got the addon to allow me to also play Atari games. :D

Those things were awesome! Had one in the early 90s. Had tons of games for it.
I always found it hard to believe that no other company made a portable that could even beat that, till what, 2 decades later.
I don't even think there was a computer out that could be games as well as that thing could, not to mention you could even watch TV on it.

The first console I ever had as my own was the original PlayStation. The fat one, not the slim PS1, although I did own that one as well.

I'm surprised no one said they had a turbo graphics 16.

Technically not a Gaming Console but my first gaming machine was a Amstrad. Had a black and white screen and pretty sure it cost my parents 3500 AUD back in 1988.
Then i won a Gameboy in like 1994 and then owned a Nintendo 64, a Xbox, 360, PS3 and Computer.

Sega Genesis is the first one I can remember although I had a Master II. Also NES. No idea which I got first.

Edit: I also had an Amiga that we only used for games that ran off of floppy disks. They went directly into the keyboard too.

Much like several others, the Atari 2600 was my first home console.

Atari 2600, but I didn't play it much. My dad had a coin-op business (used to buy and then lease/repair arcade games, jukeboxes, pool tables, cigarette machines, etc.), so I'd just go to his shop and play whatever the latest arcade or pinball machine was. Had a Donkey Kong Jr. tabletop version in the house for years; I think that's where my addiction first came about.

Got an NES, and my brother later got a Sega Genesis. Gave up gaming until college, my buddy had a Super NES, which we eventually traded in for a PS1 and played the **** out of MVP Baseball and Resident Evil. Tomb Raider was the cinch for me that I needed to buy my own PS1 later that year.

SEGA gave up on the home video game console business way too early and way too fast. They were ahead of their time.
