    I didn't play Pokemon on GameBoy but still remember this awesome game in a way it was a masterpiece. My first console was a PlayStation, I adored it to some extent even now after buying PS 5 I don't feel that many emotions as I felt playing that old PS.

    Sega Megadrive.

    Does the MSX count as a game console? It has a cartridge slot so it is effectively a game console with a keyboard.

    Mine was a pong game from Argos , it didn’t have the knobs for moving the paddles up and down but a joystick so that the paddles could move all around its playing area, I was so excited to buy this on the Saturday that I couldn’t sleep on Friday night

    Shout out for the ZX Spectrum. Can't remember what K it was. I do remember that the Ghostbusters game on my ZX wouldn't play properly. I think it was something to do with not being able to buy the best equipment.

    We got one of those very early basic pong games as a joint present for both us kids one Christmas. It had two spin-wheel topped paddles attached to a white box you connected to the back of the tv. Later my brother bought an Atari after playing it at a friend's home who had an early one, and we both bought games to plug into it.

    We had the Pong game, but the controllers were wheels built in to the console itself, at the bottom of the console. Google is no help in finding it.

    EDIT: This one. http://www.pongmuseum.com/collection...superscore.php

    Sega Genesis, I remember my father giving me his back in 2005, ( earlier than the Wii (roms world), I got that a 12 months later) and on the grounds since then, I still play sonic jam with him on that very console.

    That was the Super NES, with A Link to the Past!

    My first console was a Sega Mega Drive, after owning a ZX Spectrum +2. The things I remember most about upgrading were the much superior graphics...but also the huge hike in the cost of games!

    That bike game sounds like Stunt Cycle by Atari, although the home version had handlebars like the arcade.

    Mine looked pretty much like this one. I can remember it came with a rifle that you could turn into a pistol by removing the stock/butt. I can also remember it came with a little tube shaped controller that had a dial on the top which you turned clockwise to control the speed of the bike, that jumped over the buses in one of the built in games.
