    Actually I remember now,I had Jakks Pacific Namco plug and play console before owning a Gamecube but it wasn't for that long that's why I remembered owning the Gamecube more.

    I had a very poor family growing up but my dad managed to score me a gameboy and pokemon. He also got us a playstation a bit later on.

    Play Station 1 was my first video game console. Rayman 1,2 and the original Spyro trilogy were my first ever games. I still have them, though they're prone to issues after ~20 years and I lost the save card

  6. The first console I got was a game boy color for Christmas in 1999 together with Pokemon Red. Already had pokemon Blue though and played that on my sis' GBC.

    Didn't have a home console for quite some time. I wanted an N64 back in the day but my parents couldn't really afford that. Eventually bought a Gamecube myself quite some time later.

    The first ever game console that I could call my own growing up was a Turquoise Blue Gameboy Color. Then in 1999 during Christmas I was gifted a Sega Genesis. Eventually I was gifted a N64 for my birthday the following year.

    I remember my mom had an NES and some interesting games including the NES Dragon Ball Z game which was called Dragon Fighter and Burger Time which I mainly remember for the giant egg and pickle chasing the chef around the level.

    Nice! I have one of those Game Boys. It wore out button and sound chip wise from use though, same with my Purple GBA.

    I believe my first system ever was a black Game Boy Pocket with copies of Tiny Toon Adventures: Wacky Sports, Ms. Pac-Man and Casino FunPak. Kirby's Dream Land 2 came either concurrently or shortly after.

    First home console was Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64, Wave Race 64 and Wheel of Fortune.

    Sega Genesis is my very first console, got it on my 5th birthday back in 1995, and that very same console is still in working condition today!

    Awesome! It's amazing how well made older consoles are. My old PS2 is like your Genesis, it still works well.

    Moving it over. Even though this does have a poll, I can see how it would probably fit there a bit more.

    The first video game system I played was a SNES at my grandparents house. I could only play it when I visited their house on the weekend.

    The first system I actually owned myself was a GameBoy Color and Pokemon: Blue Version. Little did I know that would be the start of my lifelong adventure with Nintendo.

    I also bought myself a 3DS as well, along with Pokémon X and Omega Ruby. (This was in 2015.) I still have it, but the top screen has this massive ‘ink blot’ on it, making a lot of it unseeable. The bottom screen and the 3DS itself still work, though!

    I actually had started with handhelds as I didn't play consoles more consistently until I was at least about 8-9.

    1. Game & Watch Super Mario
    2. Sega Game Gear

    First console was Super Nes, played classic Nes afterwards (I got understandably frustrated with super mario on that system, heh).
