How long have you been playing video games?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - How long have you been playing video games?

I have been playing video games since the Sega Genesis days: So probably about since 1994 or 1995 which I was 7 or 8 years old.

I started with the old Atari back in the late 70's.

I also have played all of the following at some length (not necessarily owned): PC, Mac, Intellivision, Commodore 64, Colecovision, NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Boy, Sega Master Gear, Gameboy Color, GBA, Atari Lynx, Atari Jaguar, CDi, 3do, N64, PS1, Gamecube, PS2, Xbox, PS3, Sony PSP, Xbox360 and Nintendo Wii.

Oh, I've also played a ton of Game & Watch titles, Arcade Machines Tamagotchi games and cell phone games.

That's a whole lot of videogaming heaven for over 30 years!!!

Since the end of 1988, when I was 4 to 5 years old.Started with the good old NES.

It depends on what you consider a "video game". I played games in the first arcades as well as the Atari 2600 when it first came out. Before that I played games on the Commodore PET, TRS-80, Ohio Scientific, Radio-Shack Color Computer, etc.

Games before that were on "kit" systems such as the Kim I, but I doubt you could call them video games as they were often played on LED displays.

Hmm... well, I started about 26 years ago. I remember playing Pac Man on the 2600 and loving it. (Of course, I was only 2, so...) However, it's not been a continuous line; I had a lapse from gaming from about 2003-2005. In 2006, I picked up a DS, and slowly got back into the swing of things...


-On a quest for the truly perfect game; I don't think it exists...
