ok, this thread isn't to debate about which console is better. i just wanna know which video game console you ever played was. for me it was the snes waaayy back when my older brother 1st got me hooked on video games at the age of 5 and i've been gaming ever since. also i should note that it doesn't have to be just a home console, because i'm sure that some of you got your start on the commodore 64(i think that's how it's spelled), apple II, mac, pc etc. so if that was indeed the 1st hardware device you played games on then list that instead. also handhelds such as gameboys, gamegears, the atari lynx and any other handhelds count as well. so if you played a handheld 1st than that counts too.
