Atari 2600. I remember playing that thing for hours as a kid.

Technically not a console but the first gaming machine I had was the original ZX Spectrum

My first actual games console was the SNES I think.

NES... Probably 5th grade.

Two vivid memories...

Waking up to beat Zelda for the first time at 5 Am one morning before school.

And...

I found a way on Zelda II to get a sword that had a strange symbol/distortion across it in the indicator that would kill any enemy with one hit, even bosses. It was found by accident, and had to do with the contacts of the cartridge sitting in an odd way with the contacts in the console's bay.

Still never beat the game though. The path up to Gannon's castle was a bitch.

Played a fair bit of NES, but we didn't actually own one until SNES.
