What is the first new video game system either you bought or was bought for you?

My first was the MAster System. My parents bought it for my birthday. I remember the pure enjoyment of finding out about the hidden game. The system was pure pleasure. Unfortunatly, all my friends had NES. I sold my MS to buy an NES.

My first system was given to me by a freind who felt sorry for me that my family could not afford a video game system for me. Atari 2600 on a b&w tv was my first experience with video games back when nintendo was popular.

My first system was a Genesis -- saved up the money and bought it myself. Came with the delicious wonder that is Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

I don't think I could ever get rid of it. Now I, of course have a CD and 32X added onto it. Luckly I onl paid about $15-$20 apiece for each of those instead of the original retail prices


I can still remember when my friend in high school bought a 32X when it came out. We were all bummed when there weren't any 32X games availible for renting. If we only knew....
But Virtua Racing on 32X sure was cool at the time
He even let me borrow it for a while.

haha --- those were the days.

My first system was a Master System which i got for christmas. It came with Bubble Bobble and the built-in Alex kidd game.

I ended up having a collection of about 20-30 games before i decided to sell it.

heh..definetly atari 2600...although technically it was for the whole family..hmm, looking back, my video game systems bought new reads like a history of video games (well, a partial one) atari 2600, odyssey 2, colecovision, vectrex, atari 7800, sega master system, NES, genesis, supernintendo, turbographx, saturn, playstation, dreamcast, ps2...well, a partial list..I just love video games..system is so unimportant to me..as far as I'm concerned, all of them have good games

1980 - Magnavox Odyssey 2 a.k.a. Philips Videopac G7000 .... I'm German and lived in Germany until 1996 when I moved to the USA .....

1983 - Commodore 64... oddly enough, we didn't have a datassette until MUCH later. We got a monitor, 1541 and SpeedDOS first. ;-)

1988 - Amiga 500. I remember the first two games I played on this awesome machine: Test Drive 2 and Marble Madness. Gawd, they rocked. :)

1999 - my aging but trusty AMD K6-II PC... on which I played the entire Tomb Raider series. Can't wait for TR NG (but I'll need a new machine for that).

Late 2001 - my first-ever videogame console (not counting the Odyssey2) - the Sega Saturn. A friend kept telling me about Nights Into Dreams, even sending me screenshots, until curiosity got the better of me. In no time I became an avid collector of rare US and Japanese games for it.


Yesterday - a Dreamcast. Used and smells a bit, so I'll have to give it a good cleaning before using it first. Already got games for it too, though. :-D

My first game experience was Pitfall on the wood-veneered VCS that my Uncle rented. The first machine I owned which was a gift was a Phillips Videopac G7000 (Odyssey II).

I think the first system I actually bought new myself was a Japanese MegaDrive back in 1990. I paid for it by saving up the money from my paper round.
