Had all of those as well kinda xD in my case the Atari belonged to my brother in law by then, also had my hands on my sister's Macintosh to make my schools homework, remember those Dot-matrix (impact) printers? lol still have a few of those in my attic, The Nes was legitimately a Christmas gift from my parents as far I can remember. Can't forget that time when I was given a Sega Genesis console with the Sonic and Knuckles lock-on cartridge, and combining it with Sonic 2 just felt amazing, and I also remember using a 256K ROM chip to boot into a new game entitled "Knuckles in Sonic 2" unlocking a whole new shit lol I could talk about my youth hardware chronicles all day, but you get my point...

Indeed we did, I remember messing with the Apple Paint software, copying and moving files, I was just a kid had no clue what I was doing lol ended up disassembling the whole thing, to see what was inside, my dad almost killed me, "you little SOB, that was your sister's computer!!!" Nah he didn't say that but he was pissed xD

Yeah, my dad had a lot of books with programs for Amstrad and about learning to program in BASIC, and i had a lot of time and patience back then.  Smile
That was always interesting to me and i still know to program in it.  Big Grin

now i remembered this little magazine+tape i got monthly at age... 1 original game on tape, and one big BASIC program on magazine
well, about this last, after a couple hours of REAL copy/paste, the result was often... crap or SYNTAX ERROR! Smile

but the games on tape were great, like this one  Heart

Now this is a throwback thread. =)

As a little kid I played a lot of DOS games (Prince of Persia, Arkanoid, Rick Dangerous, Budokan, etc.) at my dad’s office before I actually had my own consoles but these are the gaming systems I had during my youth:
- 2 generic handhelds: football/soccer and volleyball
- Donkey Kong – Game & Watch (dual screen)
- Game Boy
- Mega Drive (favorite console ever)
- Windows PC

While on school vacations I usually lent my Mega Drive to a friend who in turn lent me his Super Nintendo so I got to experience the best of two worlds.
I also used to play Saturn and Playstation a lot at a cousin’s/friend’s houses and now I own those very same consoles. Playstation still has this skull sticker we put there while playing Tony Hawk 2, way back when. =D

As far as me having consoles
I got the Famicom i can't remember what year
Had one of those Game n' Watch thingies when I got out of a hospital at around '97
Got my PS1 when I started 3rd Grade.... right around '01
Got a GBA on '05 then my Mom sold it
'09 Had a PSP that only lasted a couple of months before it broke.....

Honestly I have rotten luck when It comes to consoles... Sad
I got this pc since 2012 and has been my means of gaming since... Big Grin
