heh the first console i can remember playing was the NES, and the game had something to do with mice. Lucky for me though, the consoles before that don`t even look functional.

milo_pretzel, if those were how you got started, i would not be surprised if you were no longer a gamer. those were not top of the line consoles, especially the philips.

Turbo Grafx and Philips CD-i started it all for me. My parents wouldn`t let me play Mario Bros 3, but they`d let me play Keith Courage. That game still scares the poo out of me.

Looks like Nintendo uped the ante and created the seed for games and controllers for today

I do miss the Atari 2600. Many of my fake sick days from school were spent playing it. Good times.

I dropped into gaming when the N64 came out. I went backwards from there for a while, and my first "recent" generation console was a PS2.

Interesting note: Nintendo is planning to unveil a new home console at E3 this year. Rumors I`ve heard say they`re wanting to make it much more powerful than the PS3 or 360, there might be an HD screen in the controller, and it`ll likely still be able to play Wii games.

Just rumors, but I thought I`d mention it.
