    Its sad, long ago I had a nintendo it worked fine, I still play and dust it off from time to time...

    Lets see how far people can go back This really is a 2 Part question:

    1. Whats the oldest you have currently?

    2. What is the oldest one you use?

    For me its nintendo and the one I use is N64, Golden Eye baby!

    I gave my old Nintendos to the youth group, the NES still sees some action and it's about fourteen years old. It works perfectly too, unlike a lot of other NESes I've seen.

    If you count emulators, I still play SNES most often. I was working on getting through all the SNES/Super Famicon Final Fantasy games but got sidetracked with Baldur's Gate II. I'll get back to FF6 before long.

    I've got a working Atari 2600, but I certainly don't use it often.

    (edit: at least, it was working the last time I used it a couple of years ago...)

    I have an Atari 7800, an Atari Jaguar, and a Nintendo Gamecube. I still use the Jaguar to play Alien vs. Predator and Doom mostly. The 7800 sits in a box somewhere.

    I also have my old Atari 8-bit computer with around 200 games from the early 1980s.

    I still have my Atari 2600, but I haven't used it in a while. I took it out a few years ago for nostalgia, but it's been in a box along with the games since.

    i've got a genisis that is in working order. shaq fu is the most underrated game of all time. if i had the time, i'd get my commodore 64 out of storage. that system had the best games. everything ever made for atari, coleco, intellivision, and the c-64 only releases.

    load"menu",8
    run

    ah. those were the days.

    I have a Pong system boxed up somewhere. Yeah, that's all it did. Also an Atari 2600 and NES. Oldest one I still use would be my Playstation.

    I have one of the original ghetto old NES systems. I still hook it up ocassionally and play Super Mario Bros. To bad the gun for Duck Hunt died - I lived for that game. The oldest I use is an N64. GoldenEye rocks the hizz-ouse!

    My cousin still has an original Commodore 64 - hasn't touched it in ages, though.

    Does anybody remember that ghettolicious floor pad for NES? I don't remember what it was called or what games it was used for, I just remember it looked a Twister mat. I'm not hallucinating, am I? They really did make one of those, right?

    Mine's the good old, original NES. It's fun to go back and play Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt when I feel like going back to my youth (well earlier youth!).
