I keep all of my consoles. Lost a few in a bad break up years ago unfortunately, but I pretty much hoard all of my old stuff. Makes no sense to give them away IMO.

Yes, especially if they work. I have the bad habit of keeping pretty much everything I get, so I have many things that are much more useless than old gaming consoles (even if I don´t play them).
But yes you should keep it, if you can.

I sold my PS3 last year in need for money and will forever regret it. What a sinner I am.

I'd like to, but I move around too often and don't generally play the older ones enough to make it worthwhile.In time, I'll wish I had my Wii back as it was such a great system with its ability to play GC games, emulate and play its own games on top of that, but I know I wouldn't have touched it over the next few years and so it made sense to get rid of it. Money and convenience sadly mean more to me than nostalgia at this point in time.

Oh boy, yes. Still have my PS1, Saturn, DC, GC, PS2, Wii. My NES just plain stopped working so I don't have that anymore and my Genny was lost. Otherwise I'd still have those. I do most of my gaming on PC and PS4 these days, but I like holding on to the old hardware.

I will keep a console if the games I want aren't on another system and look/play better than the original.
Case in point: Sold my Nintendo 64 as games like Perfect Dark, Ocarina of Time, Lylat Wars were found on other devices. (3DS and Xbox 360.)

No, it's a long tale of stupid decisions. I still own a WiiU, Switch, PS3, PS4, New 3DS XL, GBA SP and a PSP.

I don't just keep them I play them and seek out more retro systems. I collect so very much yes.

I don't have many older consoles/handhelds but I have kept them all so far.
PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP, Gameboy Colour and Advanced, DS, OG Xbox, Sega Genesis and Saturn are all still in my possession.
