My brother and I's first gaming system was a PS2 Slim silver edition, which was back in '05. First game was the Namco Museum 50th Anniversary Edition and Need for Speed: Carbon. One of the best games we played.
Six years later, we got the PS3 Slim and it was handed down to just my brother and he paid half for my own PS3 Super Slim. We split half of the money on both machines.
In January of '15, I bought my first starter-gaming PC w/ very low end graphics. In January of '16, I bought my second gaming PC, which then by November of '16, I had my first real gaming PC built. All of which I paid for.
Five years later after the PS3, my brother and I bought our own PS4 - Black Ops 3 Editions.
That pretty much the break down of our systems. I have played the old Atari at my grandma's before and I loved to play Pac Man on it.
I can still remember the day the Atari 2600 showed up at our house for Christmas... I looked at it for months in the Sears catalogue. If you aren't old enough to remember.. the Sears Christmas Wishbook was straight up porn for kids... toys, toys and more toys. That was my first vision of the Atari and I wanted that soooooo bad. If I remember it was almost $200 THEN... a huge expense for a family in those days.. but it was greatest thing ever

Yes before you had the interwebs and google search the Sears wish book was the cats meow! I remember staring at things in there for months before Christmas hahaha.
My first system was a first gen Nintendo..... but not even a Nintendo, it was called Inteletron 3000 I believe.... bought from the sears catalogue of course. It had is own games but there was an adapter cartridge that you could use to play the original Nintendo games. Then after that I wasn't much into games for a while.... I was more of an outdoor guy, played sports, rode dirt bikes, drove tractors on the farm and all that good stuff. My best friend and my cousin had an Atari so I did play those too. My bro was more into gaming so we then had a Super Nintendo and then the N64. My buddy had a PS1 when we lived together after HS but the next system I actually owned was the PS2, then 3 and now 4. I honestly wasn't even that into it still until I discovered FS, now I am on it every chance I get and I'm pushing 40 LOL
I don't know which I had first, the Commodore 64 or the Atari 2600. They both came out around the same time I think. Early 80's. Then I was a die-hard Nintendo guy. Had every version of the Nintendo system that came out. Those got me through high school/college. Then I got an original Xbox, 360, and now Xbox One.
I had a Wii somewhere in there, and also have a Wii-U.
One of my sons has a PS3.
Currently in use at my house is an iMac desktop, one windows desktop (e-machine), one windows iBuyPower gaming PC, a dell laptop, an Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, Wii-U and too many phones and iPads to count!!!
Damn I didn't realize we had this much crap til typing this!!!

I had a C64 first then got a Atari 2600 oh those old systems bring back fond memory's. Then moved onto Mega Drive , PS1, thank the gaming gods that PS2 was built solid as my wife dropped it from a great height on purpose and it lived to tell the tale lol. Was really looking forward to getting a PS3 but Sony took forever to release in the U.K. so brought a xbox360, now back with Sony with a PS4, after going thru 6 Xbox 360's. Also brought my son DS''s PSP's and PS3.
Think that's about it unless you count back in my PC gaming days building a high end gaming rig at least once a year lol
Yeah, saw the Red Ring of Death on two Xbox 360's... It was under warranty, free replacement!.. But then that one died too, not too much later... Seems like they were overheating. I didn't keep them very well ventilated, so it's partly my fault..
My first electronic game was probably pong....Two bats and a square ball...man those were the days black and white with plenty of playability before the shilling went and the lights go out....then had to start again kids don't know what they're missing today lol We've had or got most of the more up to date machines and consoles and piles of game's and they still serve their propose of passing the time away with like minded people so enjoy
C64 Amiga a1200. Sega master system 1 and 2 . Sega mega drive . PS 1 2 and 3 . n64 . Wii . Xbox one. Xbox 360 . how I managed to find time to leave the house I will never know. Oh and those are not in order. too old to remember what order they where in. Just remembers having them all at one time or another. I'm sure there are others aswell
Ex Xbox ambassador Twitch/beam streamer All round good guy , within reason
I think the Wishbook is still a thing... although I haven't seen one in a while... other than the toy section when I was younger... the lingerie section proved to be a better draw year after year as I got older... there was some very, very naughty girls in there.. and they wanted a spanking..
Hahaha cr41g isn't it funny how that works, when I was really young you skipped to the back because that's where all the toys were, but as I got older I would start from the front....it's a shame really that sears has gone so far down hill, in the town where I grew up there isn't even a place where they send the packages anymore. When you think of it they were kind of the first online store in a way. CrazyTrain it does look like you are a little younger than most of us here but that's ok because most of us here just haven't grown up yet lol.
