longtimereader said...

80's child so two computers - ZX Spectrum and the Commodore 64, still got them in the attic somewhere along with a pile games on tape.

Atari. I used to work for Atari back in its heyday (showing my age here). Stressful place to work!

roque said...

Atari 5200- the supposed great "next generation" of the 2600, but it only had maybe 1/4 the games.

The Nintendo Entertainment System from 1985. A whopping 8 bit system which BTW I still own and is fully functional.

Activision? The one that you’d connect something to your TV.

AJ said...

Pong. Not kidding.

Herbert Arnold said...

never owned one for myself. i played pong when it was a brand new arcade game probably early 70s. and i thought then that "this is a buch of _______". my kids have had them but i wasnt able to dumb down that far.

Florin said...

I started playing games on my C64, but technically, my first game system was a PS1.

Atari 2600 - with the COMBAT cartridge, the first one when it just came out.
Had a Franklin Ace 1000 too - the Apple II+ clone.

AbbyRock said...

My younger brother go an Atari Pong game for Christmas a million years ago. I was never into video games.

Low Key said...

I still have: Atari 2600, original Nintendo, Gameboy, Sega Genesis, several X Boxes, and Game Genies for the Nintendo, Gameboy, and Sega.

Pong was the first, I think.

Magnavox Odyssey 300

Colicovision, way better controllers than the Atari 2600. Your hand didn't hurt from wrestling the stiff joystick mounted to an overlarge base.

Super Nintendo!

Pong

YummyBoogers said...

Intellivision, released in late 70s

Chaps said...

Does a handheld Pac Man game count?

Rob Horine said...

RCA Studio II. My dad sold a lot of RCA tvs at his furniture store in the mid 70s. So a RCA rep gave him a preview unit of the Studio II. Monochrome graphics (only white and grey), no joysticks just two keypads connected to the unit itself (no cords) and only 7 carts produced. Total crap.

Since then I've owned a
2600 Atari, Colecovision, TI-99/4a (no games), C64, Vetrex, NES, SMS, TG16, Genesis, SNES, Atari Jaguar, Atari Lynx, PS1, Saturn, PS2, GBA, N64, Xbox, XBox 360, PS3, Dreamcast, Xbox one and PS4.

And thanks to emulation, I can play them all again. Seriously, check out ArcadePunks.com, it'll be fun.

Motörhead said...

Just spent an hour looking for it online. Knew it wasn’t Atari or Grandstand but eventually found it. Polycon C4010 In Caramac beige, 20 games including Gridiron, I was 6 and had no idea gridiron was American Football. 1978 and I was 6. My son was 4 when he had a PS3 and 8 when he had a PS4. The spoilt little brat.

DarylsBigFan said...

Did anyone see the Big Bang Theory episode (season 6 or 7?) where Sheldon cannot decide between XBox One and PlayStation 4?

😊 very funny

Sarton Bander said...

rather few thousand quids worth of water-cooled PC etc.

Stevie Nixed said...

"Yo mama"

Well, I feel sorry for you as my mom is a prude. Lol


Btw the answer is Pong. No wonder I listened to New Beat in the late 80s.

ScrantonYankees said...

My first was called intelevision. Was out at the same time as Atari. I preferred it to Atari.

Cee Kay said...

Atari. I was always so jealous of those kids who had Colecovision!

Fairylights said...

None. Our kids had a Gameboy that they shared, we were mean parents.

GentleBreeze said...

Remember playing Pong in the middle '70s. Video games make me nervous, so don't play them.

MattDaddy said...

Radio Shack pong.

Vita said...

When my friend got Pong, I thought my mind would explode. I got Atari a Christmas or two later. Space Invaders, Pac Man & Ms, Asteroids, Pitfall, Donkey Kong, Popeye! I was obsessed with Q-Bert, to the point of calling around on the rotary phone trying to price official arcade models. The parents put a big no on that plan!

James Howlett said...

NES was my first, I still own my Start 2600 with over 100 games. I have a Sega Genesis, a SNES, a Nintendo Switch, and. PlayStation 4. I love video games. They're better than 90% of the tripe they put out these days. Just look to Naughty Dog video games, anything Hideo Kojima puts out. I don't like sports games and I hate EA games, they have ripped off their fans more than once and just laughed about it. The worst part is that EA owns the Star Wars publishing rights. They canned an open world Star Wars game and put out more garbage. I would love some video game blinds

James Howlett said...


Atari 2600 not start, I got excited.

All X's said...

Commode 64 - was only used for games.

Vita said...

All X-- Commode, lol!!! I could write a sentence on constant loop and change font colors. Pretty much the extent of my coding skills.
