    I've got an old BBC micro from c.'82, with an original green-screen monitor and all the other attendant bits (modem, manuals etc.) Plus a bagful of the old floppy discs with various programmes on them. That's the only old computer I have though.
    As for games, I have two Sony Game Boys from the late '90s, and also a very early hand-held car race game that I bought in '83. I've barely ever used it, it's still in it's box! Also a TV plug-in game console from c.1979, with the old-style black & white 'at & ball' game plus a few others.

    Part of the fun of playing old games is waiting to see if they load, isn't it? That and using an old joystick that only has 1 button and 8 directions.
