And how the heck did every kid in America know with the NES and SNES to take the cartridge out and blow in it and put it right back in to make it work? We didn't have internet back then to figure that out! But every kid knew! Kids nowadays are soft.
Haha, so true.
I loved playing Spacewar on the Atari, but the first gaming system I owned was a Gameboy, and then an SNES. I'd have to say the Gameboy was my favorite because of it's portability. I loved playing Kid Icarus and Paperboy on that thing. Wow.
I think I would have to say SNES: FFVI, Super Street Fighter II, Donkey Kong Country, Earthworm Jim, Super Mario World, Yoshi's Island, even Wolfenstein 3D/Doom (sure, the PC versions were better, but if you didn't have a PC that would play these games then the SNES was a pretty good alternative since these first FPS titles didn't present the need to aim within the vertical axis).
However, when I was very young we had an Atari 5200. I still have it, although the paddles don't work. (The paddles were the first "analogue" controllers.) The paddles wore out after a ridiculously short usage period. After very little use, they are basically useless. The 5200 was great because it had superior verions of some great 2600 games such as Pitfall 2, River Raid, Pac-Man, Qix, Kangaroo, etc.
My grandparents had an Atari 2600 which I now have. (Needs a new RF converter though I think.) I remember playing a single game of Asteroids for about 4 hours straight, before simply quitting. I loved that game. Best 2-note soundtrack ever...
286 pc, 10Mhz. The only PC I ever owned that could run Deathtrack, which is the most awesome game ever created for its time, at its intended normal speed.
But if you go purely console wise. I seemed pretty happy with my Sega Mastersystem II and the Neo Geo. It's a shame I threw all my Neo Geo stuff away. That stuff would have been worth a lot now as I owned two of the more rare Neo Geo games.
