    Not just Nintendo, but any of those old consoles? I was just wondering if any of you ever pull them out and play them? Or do you use Emulators and roms?

      Old video games are great! I thought Super Mario Bros 3 was the best one in the series, until New Super Mario Bros Wii came out.

      Been playing Tetris on my iPod Touch, and now I'm thinking about picking up the new Super Mario All-Stars collection :-)

    i still have mine, but i never play it anymore. i thought about selling it, but most used video game stores won't give me that much for it.  hence, i haven't gotten rid of it. one of these days, i'll have to play on it again. smile

    I still play old nintendo games from time to time. I'll either break out the SNES or the 64. Some of those games are too good not to play again.

      That's pretty much all I play anymore. Not too keen on the newer stuff, so I tend to stick with what I loved as a kid: NES and other crusty, old gaming systems. smile

    I really wish I had kept my old consoles when I was younger.  After I moved out of my parents house they all disapeared sad
    I would still play them if I had them.

    I still whip out the old Genesis and put some sonic the hedgehog on back when it was good and the dream-cast for some virtua fighter just to reminisce I like to play Paper-Boy on the 360 that was a fun game.

    We never had Nintendo or anything like that when I was growing up, but I still occasionally sit down for a game of SimAnt, my favorite computer game when I was a kid. It's kind of amazing how different it looks on a 1260x800 screen than it did back on the old MS-DOS computer I played on back then.

    I still have a Sony Playstation that is occasionally used to keep visiting kids up to 40 happy while we do other stuff smile

    BUT  the only game I really really liked was the original WORMS - as amusement for consenting half-pi**ed adults it takes some beating.  The whole funny,sloppy,innacurate and plain cheatable game amused for hours.

    If anyone still has it - I WANT ONE !!  My copy was in the pile of stuff my second ex sold the minute I was far enough away to be out of mind.

    I remember the days of Space Invaders from the '70s.  Yeah, you actually had to stand at those old video games at the arcade or grocery store.  A pocket full of quarters always helped.

    Pac Man was iconic.  However, it seemed a sacrilige when Ms. Pac Man manifest itself. 

    Galaga and 1942 were among my favorites of yesteryear.

    Recently started using emulators to play my old SNES and Megadrive (Genesis) games again, it's a great nostalgia trip but you do realise how dated some of them are. Loved going back over Lemmings and Rainbow Islands though. The only thin that irritates me a bit is that they weren't made for widescreen so you get huge black bars at the sides of the screens. I'd love to see more retro classic game collections produced.

    Wow, a friend and I were just playing the Nintendo 64 two nights ago for grins and giggles. He just had a strange impulse to fire it up so we did a little.

      I miss my N64. Why oh why did I ever give it away??  I spent hours playing smash brothers with my brother.  Fox ruled!

    Sure do.
    I'm an avid fan of the ZX Spectrum and Commodore Amiga (as you may have guessed from my hubs)

    I love retro gaming and often play the old classics!

    I play Secret of Mana
    Chrono Trigger
    currently replaying Tales of Phantasia
    Donkey kong

    N64? not so much.
    I usually just play Super Mario 64, Mischief Makers, and Yoshi Story.
    I reeeally want Hey you, Pikachu. Rented it forever ago and regret never buying it...
