    Hello, my name is Chris, and I am 23.

    My first console was my parents Intellivision, and their awesome collection of just about every game Mattel released (plus a few Imagic titles thrown in for good luck). Shortly thereafter my parents bought an NES, but I always gravitated towards the Intellivision. My neighbour had a Colecovision, which rarely got used as it paled in comparison to the INTV :p

    I also used to own a Genesis and Game Gear. I sold the GG off quickly because I could never get into handhelds, and I still can't. The Genesis I also sold off, and regretted ever since. I recently purchased a second hand Genesis, and am re-living a part of my childhood which pretty much only consisted of Sonic.

    I went on a bit of a hiatus through most of the 90's, until I picked up my first PlayStation at a flea market around '99-ish, just in time to get hooked by Silent Hill. The only other console I've purchased since then was my PS2, which I bought new in 2001, specifically for Silent Hill 2. I also picked up an N64 last year, it sees moderate usage.


    Today? I guess the PS2 gets most of the usage... the PlayStation really only comes out of the closet if I want to play Silent Hill, since it doesn't run that well on the PS2. My Genesis gets occasional usage, but I mostly emulate now. Kega. The NES hasn't been turned on since sometime in the 90's, so for all I know it might not even work.
    The Intellivision? Hooked up and ready to play. The Lock 'n' Chase cartridge is actually in it right now, I was playing it a couple of weeks ago. You just can't emulate that controller... besides, nothing beats the real fun of wrestling with those awesome controllers and overlays. I purchased an Intellivoice module off of ebay a couple years ago after mine broke, and I'm considering the purchase of an Intellivision II for the collection.

    My name is Mike and I'm 25 years old. While I have always been a gamer, to this day my father thinks "vidya games r stoopid!" so I have been limited in the consoles I have owned.

    Consoles I own:
    Original Gameboy
    PS1
    Xbox
    Retro Duo (plays both NES and SNES games).

    Systems I have mooched off of friends/roommates
    Sega Genesis
    Sega CD
    Sega Saturn
    Sega Dreamcast
    VirtuaBoy
    N64
    ShameCube
    Wii
    PS2
    PS3
    PSP
    Xbox 360

    Depending on if I get a raise this month and family monetary issues, I may finally pick up a 360. All depends, but I'm patient.

    21 years-old

    Been gaming since I was 3 on the NES. On top of that I actually knew what I was doing and wasn't just mashing buttons; my parents have video proof of me playing on tape.

    Yay, I'm not the oldest. I'm twenty-eight and I love video games.

    My parents had a strict "video games lead to retardation" policy when I was young. But when my dad closed his video rental store, he brought home a NES and forty games instead of selling it (since we would be having a crappy Christmas). A gamer was born.

    NES
    SNES (no Genesis, they had blood...gasp!)
    N64 (see a trend?)
    PSX (combo breaker)
    PS2
    PS3

    I have a small collection of my favorites on the the last three. I used to spend very little time playing with my social life interfering. But I've been able to get more time in over the years now that I'm married.

    Oh, get pwned. I was a year younger. 8) Video proof? Nah, the money we could have bought a video camera with went to a NES.

    I've got my niece playing games. She'll be 4-years-old in a few weeks, but she's been playing since she was 2. She mostly played Atari, Sonic, and V-Smile games. Now she's kick-ass at the minigames in New Super Mario Bros. for DS, and learning to understand how to play the Mario bit of it, on the easier levels.

    Those joystick games were really helpful for her to learn her left, right, etc. And just the hand-eye coordination in realizing that the buttons you're pressing are controlling your character's actions.

    ...Anyway...

    25 (and f***ing enjoying it)

    Grew up on the GENESIS which Mom bought for my birthday but then downgraded to a NES cause Mario & Co. looked pretty cool. Bought a PSX from my savings of lunch money (You should have seen the look on my friend when I paid everything in coins!). Got a GB when Pokemon was all the rage. Thought GBA was neat and upgraded to GBA SP.

    PS2 came a-calling followed by the GC. Bought a NEOGEO AES including 5 carts which I saw at a flea-market for $30. A good friend of mine gave his SNES to me which to this day I regularly power up. PSP inevitably ended up in my collection too and so did NDS. Likewise for PS3.

    Happy 20 years of gaming to me!! :banana:

    AMANIAC- I started when I was 5, so not as young as some. But the reason I did was because the grown-ups were playing Atari and they weren't just gonna leave the kids out. So I got to play with them and then I was hooked. :D
