Super Nintendo
Nintendo
Sega Master System
Intellivision (This is in the attic, somewhere)

Playstation Portable

Virtual Boy :)

Sad to say I never owned an Atari. I was in fact extremely young when I (read: my older brother) got the Sega Master System. Intellivision my dad had got before I was born. Everything Playstation and on was my systems. Everything before that was technically my brother's. (I always got the second controller. :(), but I eventually seized control of them after he got other hobbies.

Own Now:

PC

Did own:

34 PC's (each individual in their own right)
Snes
Nes
C64

Those PC's eventually got split up and used to improve other peoples' machines. It's horrific how many people have awfully slow and plain crap PC's in this day and age. I am talking about 10 year old hardware, one guy had ISA only slots!

Will never own:
Another Intel-based PC*yawn* AMD fanboys will never learn. Intel is and always will be highly competitive. In fact, the latest and greatest quads coming out by AMD still don't compare with the Conroe core. ...AMD should have wasted their time and effort taking over ATI. They're falling behind. Sure, they'll be back up there, but anyone who really takes sides really has to look at the facts.

Ever since 2003, I lost a lot of interest in playing games mainly since it got so hard to find games rated E as they were almost always T or M, games I'd refuse to get (as I strongly dislike the adult content). Plus, much of the good stuff I've always loved has been taken out.

/* own now, in order of most commonly played */

NES (Metroid, Mario 3, and some others)
Sega Genesis (mainly playing Sonic and drowning the fox, sometimes Bubsy)
Playstation 1 (close third - between Bubsy 3D, Jumping Flash, and Spyro 2)
Gamecube (Getting super high with Super Monkey Ball 2 and Super Mario Sunshine are the only two actively played, others very rarely)
PC (just Midtown Madness 2 as well as Zapper, both of which very rarely played, and in the very distant past, "Zeliard", and unless you consider my own creation, "The Supernatural Olympics").

/*Once owned, in order of most wanted again */

Atari (I grew up with the Atari; not sure which one though)
Super Nintendo (for Super Mario World)
Playstation 2 (no interest in any of the games; couldn't read disks after my sister accidentally dropped it)

/*Once played but never owned nor rented */

Macintosh (Number Munchers mainly - I reached level 40-something amazing my class)

Me:

Currently:
an AMD Athlon Desktop
didn't play any consoles except with emulators (e.g VGS, Bleem!, Genecyst, etc.) :D

Before:
an AMD 386 desktop --> how I miss her (my first love :D)
an NES
an Atari (forgot the type but I still remember that my games were pong and a tennis game)

Well, I've been using AMD since the 386 family. And I dare to say AMD is better than Intel costwise. BTW, for servers, AMD is better than Intel. At least that's what ExtremeTech (http://www.extremetech.com/) said.

Thanks for trying to derail the thread with rhetoric and blatant assumptions.You're welcome. You must think I'm assuming you only use AMD and there for you're an AMD fan boy; I didn't. However regardless of what you choose to use, AMD, Mac, ... IBM, I suppose. You decided to single out Intel and that's what makes your an AMD fan boy. ...and welcome to General Discussion; The land of eventually off-topic posts.


Well, I've been using AMD since the 386 family. And I dare to say AMD is better than Intel costwise. BTW, for servers, AMD is better than Intel. At least that's what ExtremeTech said.Not really, though. The newer Xeons (Woodcrest?) are supposed to be significantly better than the opetrons. I've never used either, myself, however. Both names are highly competitive in almost all respects. They go back and forth, I just don't know how anyone can take either side. Just go with what's leading at the time. You won't be disappointed.


Yup, I have 1 original grey one and one of the "second" generation that is black in color but otherwise the same...I think my sister has another old grey one laying around somewhere...I still break them out every once and a while...I just pulled my original Gameboy out, today. I was going to see if it worked but it needed batteries I don't have so I didn't bother. :/ Maybe tomorrow. I think it still works, though.
