Your first gaming console?
My first gaming console was the NES (Nintendo Entertainment System).
What was yours?
In the loosest sense of the words 'gaming console' my first one was TV Scoreboard from Radio Shack as seen here:
Good 'ol pong consoles , in 30 years we've went from 2 sticks hitting a ball to games like Grand theft auto.
First game I got was Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped
Ours was a Mattel Intellivision console. We had so much fun with this as kids until one of the controllers broke ... then it became a one player scenario. In South Africa, the competition was between this and the Atari console ... good ol' days!!!
Here is a pic
Yeah I believe it was the Colecovision, Intellivision and the Atari that were competing. Funny thing is that the Colecovision could play Atari 2600 games with some module you connect to it.
I can't remember SA having the Colevision. Hehehe ... it was hacked!!! Hacking is as old as the console itself.
It was only released in Europe and America, so it would only be in SA if someone brought it there.
A Sega Master System i think
My first handheld one was the very first Gameboy. My first real console was the SNES.
