I used to have a lot of old consoles but gradually sold them all. I love those old games but somewhere along the line I lost interest and any sense of achievement in collecting those old things. I love those old games but emulators are much more convenient. The oldest ones I had were the Nintendo Game & Watch games.

Besides the ones that have been mentioned, I think I still have my Atari 2600 stashed away somewhere. Best game on that console: Adventure by Warren Robinett. Besides being one of the first graphical computer RPGs (if not THE first), it certainly had the first "Easter Egg".

Well, we have a Gamecube sitting around in our room without any cables, and I have an original GBA without a battery cover. (It's black, for the record.)

My little brother has an N64 waiting for him in Texas, though.

Also an original Game Boy, GBC, GBA (the original version, paid 70 when it was new!) and a bust original PS2. Also roughly above my room is a BBC Micro!

Ah man BBC micros. We used to have loads of those at school in our computer room. Goes to show how old I am I guess. We never used them for lessons or anything but we played on them during some lunch breaks.
You know, I just realised why on earth did they have games like Donkey Kong, Thrust and SimCity on school computers anyway?

Hehe, i remember when i was at primary school the classrooms had BBC Micros in, when we did story writing one person got to use "the computer" for it, they also had agonisingly slow and very noisy printers. Later some of the classrooms were "upgraded" to Acorns, we didn't like those so much, they didn't have as many games! Oddly we were well prepared for Windows because Acorn RISC OS resembled Windows 95 at a time when most PC's still used DOS primarily. When i was in the final year the school got an uber powerful 100mhz-or-so machine with a CD Rom! It was on a wheely cabinet so it could be wheeled into different classrooms, where the most upper-class-smug-type boys and thier cronies would get on it, open up articles about spiders on Encarta (the only CD they actually had) and try and get the girls to look at the screen.

An old iMac with OS9 that crashed sometime before I found the OSX disc, an ooooooold floppy drive, and a 2002 PC that my ex-brother-in-law made.

I think I've listed all my consoles at least twice now, no need to pester you all with them again.

Funnily enough i remember buying Lotus Turbo Challenge on a CD-ROM with Zool and Nigel Mansell's Formula 1 game, and i could never get Lotus to work on my dad's PC! The memories are all flooding back now!!
