    The Nintendo 64. Donkey Kong was my favorite. Using the theme song, my brother and I memorized Bible verses.

      The N64 was a great console.  Mario 64, Goldeneye, WaveRace 64.  Great games.

    I have fond memories of an Atari 2600 Jr. that I got as a gift. Other kids had NES and Sega Master System consoles, but we couldn't afford that - so, I was happy with my Atari. The rest of the world had moved on to SNES and Megadrive by the time my Atari stopped working, if I remember right - though, I didn't actually get another console until the N64.

      Great system as well.  Who can forget Pac-Man, Space Invaders, and my favorite 2600 game Adventure.  Berzerk was another game I liked.  It is funny because looking back those games were extremely repetitive.  At the time we loved them though.

    I had an Atari. I think I got it when I was about 5 years old. I loved playing Pitfall. I believe that was the first video game console made. Are there any older than Atari?

      There was a console known as the Odyssey that preceded the 2600 but it was not nearly as popular.

    The original Nintendo with Mario about 1988....I think.

      The NES is the console that really took gaming to a new level.  Games were no longer about seeing how many times you could repeat the same level and became more about story telling and exploration.  Love the NES.

    The SNES - with Super Mario Bros and Starwing (Starfox in US, I believe).

      SNES was a great console as well. Probably my favorite games on it were Tecmo Super Baseball and The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

    The first PlayStation console shortly after it was released. I got it for Christmas when I was about 7 along with PacMan Worlds, Rayman, and Spyro the Dragon smile Fond memories indeed!

      I remember my brother-in-law rented an imported Playstation and some games before the US release.  It was quite impressive for the time.
