So, how many of this generation's systems do you own? What's your favorite?

I only have a Wii. If I had the money, I might buy a PS3 or an X-Box 360.

I currently own an X-box and a Nintendo 64,and I am happy with both of them,except my X-box tends to have a lot of problems at times,and I hope to one day get an X-box 360,because it looks cool and it has several games that I want that I cant get for X-box.

I have the one on Nintendo 64, and I hear that one is better. I heard that they omitted some things from the X-box version, though I haven't played that version. The Nintendo 64 version is awesome!

In our home we have a WII (this is cool) and a PS2. Some where (in storage) I know we have a Super Nintendo and an Odessey (are you old enough to remember that one?!). I think it would be cool to have a 'Video Game Center' where people can come in a play different generations of video games...from the ealier PONG to the latest and greatest (and everything in between)! What is the earliest gen system you ever played? What is your favorite system and game?

No, I haven't played an Odessey. The earliest generation system I have played is an Atari 2600. I don't really have a favorite system. Although, I am pretty sentimental about my Super Nintendo since it was the one that really got me into games. Plus, it had lots of great games. To clarify, I do own all the Nintendo systems, with exception to the Virtual Boy. Plus, two sega genesis, a sega master system and an Atari 2600. However, from this generation, I only have a Wii. (Nintendo DS is a portable.)

Having a WII is pretty cool. My kids rented some kind of war game for it (frontline?) that looked pretty sweet! Sounds like you have been collecting some systems for some time! Odyssey came out about the same time as Atari did. Manufactured my Magnivox (do the still egsist?) it didn't get much press against the 'high speed' graphics of the Atari. Do you remeber a system called 'Intellivision'. It had a very strange flat controller. I remember playing it in Kmart eons ago. That is when arcade machines were in grocery stores. Is there anywhere one can find a good arcade machine beside a Chuck E Cheese? :-)

I have heard about Intellivision, but I never played any of the games. There was a game called "Intellivision Lives" and was released on Gamecube, I believe. I never played it, but I guess it got pretty poor reviews. As for arcade machines, last I checked there were some at my local Holiday Inn and at Godfather's Pizza. There used to be a Pirate's Den (lots of arcade games there.) at a mall in my area, but they got rid of it for some stupid reason.

I got a xbox 360 and I'm satisfied with that unless it was to break. They have been known to be fragile. If it does I'm going to buy a ps3 because it probably won't break. Sony has durable products.

Interesting that you say that. I've heard some people say they've been through several PS2s, because they were so fragile. Maybe your experiences have been more positive?

My husband and I have a PlayStation 2 and a Nintendo Wii. I also have a Nintendo DS Lite. We did have a GameCube, but we gave it to my brother because it's not needed since we have the Wii, and can use it to play all of our GameCube games.

That's cool. I wish I had a DS Lite. The good thing about Gamecube though, is the Game Boy Player which allows you to play nearly every Gameboy game ever made. Also, I worry less about my Gamecube games getting scratched if I put them in my Gamecube. Plus, it's less noisy, but I still love my Wii and Gamecube!

You might have to wait awhile, because they're all still pretty expensive, especially that Playstation 3.

I have a Wii, Xbox 360 and a PS3. Personally the PS3 is my favorite. The Xbox 360 doesn't play all Xbox games. Which kinda ticks me off because it just doesn't make much sense why it won't. I mean the PS3 plays all original Playstation games and PS2 games and PS3 games. Then the Xbox 360 controller drives me insane. I'll be sitting there watching a dvd and if it's over I have to turn the controller back on. I don't like the fact that you have to turn it on anyways. You don't have to do that with any of the Playstation controllers. I hope this helps you at least a little.

That's good that PS3 plays PS2 and original Playstation games. I've been tempted to buy a PS2 because I'd like to get those older Smackdown vs. Raw games. Three games for $30! I hear the older versions are pretty good.

I have a PS2, Nintendo DS. I would like a Wii and a PS3, but I don't have the money to get them. The Wii and PS3 seems cool.

DS is cool. I'd buy a DS lite, but I read a rumor about a new DS coming out this year, so I might hold off for awhile. It's hard to play a DS phat outside on a sunny day!

I own the original chunky grey Gameboy from the early nineties. I got that when I was six years old. And there is no way I'd sell that. I also own a Sega Genesis. I got that when I was six or seven. I still like playing that Sonic game. I also have a N64, which I got when I was ten years old. That Mario game is so awesome. And it's way better than the new Mario games, in my own honest opinion. And finally, I have a Playstation 2, which I received when I was fifteen years old. I guess I got lucky with everything that I have. And I'm never selling any of them. I may not be a gamer, but it's nice to know that I have 'toys' laying around for me to play with.

You're best off not selling them, because you'd only get a fraction of what you paid for them. You'd also regret selling them. At least, that's what happened with me, but I guess I'm a hardcore gamer.

We have: Original Nintendo(flaky at best, now that it's old as dirt) Sega Genesis(just sitting around) Xbox 360 Playstation 2 and 3 we are getting a Wii and a Xbox 360 Elite in the next few months. As you can tell, my boyfriend and I both play a lot of games. The new one that I really enjoy is Call of Duty 4. With Xbox Live, it makes for an awesome experience.

That's cool to have all those systems! Don't care much for the older systems, huh?
