My oldest "extreme gaming system" has to be the Mac SE that my dad bought when I was around 3. That thing rocks. I really need to pull it out and play some Crystal Quest sometime.

I also have an SNES in great working condition, and an N64 as well. I don't consider the latter old skool at all, though. Heck, 1996 seems like just yesterday--me and my distorted time sense.

Was that an original MSX or MSX2 machine? I have a Sony HB201, which conforms to the original MSX specification.

It was called a power pad, I had one and spent hours playing track and field. Yea my nintendo is my oldest, and most used. I love busting out mega man, double dragon, all those classic games.

I have a Lynx in working condition.

My Mom still has the ole Atari 2600. (the first model with the wood grain. ) Last time I check it still worked.

At my Mom's house the Atari is sitting in its Atari case (also original) under my Nintendo which my kids still play every time they are there. (The original Nintendo. The Super Mario/ duck hunt combo...) My oldest plays Super Mario Brothers and he just started playing Jackal. he used to play duck hunt when he was little. (and he would touch the gun to the TV when he shot.. )

We have a couple of b/w gameboys (the silver smaller edition) that the boys play with. I have a Gameboy Advanced that I play. And a Gamecube that we all play.

On my mac I still have a shortcut on the desktop for Strategic Conquest 4.0. I just love that game...

My C64 died, otherwise I would still have it, but I think I wore the thing out. It was on all of the time.

Heh, i still got an NES, but not only that, also got a Chinese Nintendo (400 in 1 anyone? haha).

I have Super Mario 1 and 3, but not 2 (I lost 2 when I went over to a friends house when i was like 10, and being the naive child i was, I left it there). Sigh.

Anyway, also got Little League Baseball (one of the CLASSICS baby). Wheel of Fortune/original Jeopardy also brings back good memories (and me not knowing anything from the early 80's).

Heh, and random fact. Picked up "Elevator Action" when a 'sitter left it at my house 15 years ago, pretty silly game, but still fun once in a while...yeah he's not getting it back

As I said in my post, "Super Mario World," that classic SNES game.

Wow, I still consider this new-school. I listed my N64, but that still doesn't feel old school to me. I think you've gotta be talking SNES/Genesis or older. At the very least, you gotta pull out Sega Saturn (or Sega CD, maybe). I dunno, maybe it's just me. Maybe I'm becoming an old, old man.

I agree and i must be getting old too . Old school is really the pre-nintendo/ 8 bit era and for those older than myself... well they already listed many systems that i'm sure most young'ns nowadays never heard of. So an PSX is in no way old school... they still make games for it!

My little bro and I share our newest systems: PS2 & GameCube. He's also been through a Gameboy Color (lost), Gameboy Advance (I traded it in for Soul Calibur II; no, not without his OK), and the recent addition: Gameboy SP (I traded the Advance in after he got the SP). I also had a Virtual Boy at one point; it was working fine but in storage: My dad thought it would be A OK just to give it away to someone. Definitely did not make me happy. That thing was cool.
