    We got a Binatone from Shoppers Paradise(later Argos) in Altringham in 1978. 1982 brought us the Atari 2600 and Frogger. When i was all grown up with a job, house and family and was working at TRU i worked on the video games dept. I absolutely loved it but the problem was the very poor pay. Customers used to ask me for game advice but i had to tell them that i couldnt afford one on the meagre wage they payed me.

    Unfortunately, I didn't have a video console in my childhood. When I was 10 the computer was bought for me and my brother by my parents. It was so long ago that I think the monitor used to fill an entire room. Do you remember those bold ones? We played different games in our free time. But our favorite was Minecraft. Now it is possible to play it online on different servers. Also, different modes are available. For example, his son plays it . I think it was inherited xD. But even right now we try to find time to play. It brings us together.

    Radofin Telesports IV

    It came with a generic multi-sports cartridge, but I later got a Stunt Cycle game for my Birthday. We got ours around 1981.

    I was a sales assistant in Boot's The Chemist flagship store in Regent Street in London, a mere stone's throw from the wonderful Hamley's. It was the late 70's and working in the audio department I would sell video games consoles. Apart from the typical ping pong type games there is one that sticks in my mind for some reason. It involved using the joystick the launch a liitle motorcycle stunt man off one ramp and safely onto another. All very Evel Knievel! I bought a megadrive some years later although I never caught the gaming bug. Thoroughly enjoyed Desert Strike, it'll be the closest I'll ever get to flying a helicopter which is probably just as well.

    The first one was Sega Genesis 2nd. And almost at the same time I've got a Nintendo from my brother. Still remember that time like it was yesterday. I still prefer to play games, which are pretty easy to complete, level by level, without spending a lot of time for getting all the details about gameplay. Game development company that knows games called iLogos - have pretty awesome portfolio of collected games, and game projects - in which they've been taking a participation, and turns out that I've played almost every second game they've been developing.

    My first system is the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System). And no I don’t wish I still had it. Due to ROMs and collections, I can get the majority of all the video games I used to own.

    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
