    OK, just a quick question. what is the oldest gaming system you have that you still play games on?

    For me it is a 1981 TI 99/4A... and the favorites are

    Much Man
    Ti Invaders
    Parsec
    Tombstone city
    Star Trek
    Microsurgeon

    every now and then i get a hankering for some doom, doom2, quake 1 and 2 for pc. one thing i really like about pc, is genereally it does keep backwards compatible for the most part,
    console wise: mario world and mario 3, mario 64, random mario kart games. get a turn every now and then.

    I still have mine boxed up and stuffed away someone. Same with the games with it. It’s what introduced me to need for speed. I can’t remember the other games I have for it tho...

    To contribute to the thread, I still have a lot of my old consoles starting with nes. Last thing I dug out and played was my snes for bomberman. Haven’t played with it since picking up bomberman on the switch tho.

    I have an Atari 5200 that I pull out every now and then. My Mom originally got it for Christmas from my Dad a few years before I was born.

    The first console I got as a child was an SNES bundled with Super Mario All Stars which I still have, and play.

    I dumped all my old systems when I discovered emulation, but a good friend of mine has basically every "major" system going back to the Atari 2600. He even has a functional Virtual Boy and a ROB that works. Apparently a working Jaguar CD is the holy grail for old systems. It's a complete POS and there aren't many of them out there to begin with. That's the one item he can't seem to locate a working version of. Even finding normal working Jaguars is a challenge. He has 2 dead ones.
    Everything else seems to work fine, although his CD-i seems to be on life support.
