^^ @Moandain thats a HUGE list lol
what i meant is to avoid hardware got after his official release, ie if you took Master System and Genesis after Saturn, this is retrocollect and does not count here   Tongue

First two systems i played games on were my dad's Atari 2600 and German version of Amstrad CPC-464 microcomputer (rebranded as Schneider) without disk drive, but plenty of tapes.  Smile
They still work great, but now i use emulators for them.
This is how Amstrad (Schneider version) CPC-464 looks like:

This also doesn't count, but just to add that i finally got my Dreamcast two years ago in great condition, almost like new and i'm very happy with it.  Smile

never got an Amstrad computer (or later console)
i play this with emulators, i like the particular use of colors in screens/sprites (a bit too much) Smile

thanks for sharing, guys
you remember also the correct years, darn, i dont remember what i ate for lunch lol
