Around the Network

I started on an Apple II ( so young ).

My first real console was NES. then SNES/N64

I went on to Dreamcast, GC, XBOX.

Bought a 360, a Wii, and a PS3

Built a PC

Picked up a WiiU and an Xbox One.

I went back to PC and I’m staying there for ever now.



NES -> Gamecube -> Wii -> Wii U -> Switch.

1991-2004 I was a pure PC gamer. And since all the titles I wanted to play on PS360 and their successors also came out on PC, I stayed with Nintendo.



1. NES
2. SNES
3. N64 then switched to PS1
4. PS2
5. PS3
6. PS4
7. Switch (...for now until I pick up a PS5)



Gen 3: NES

Gen 5: PS1
Gen 6: PS2

Gen 8: Xbox One
Gen 9: Switch (so far)

1. Atari 2600
2. NES
3. SNES
4. PS1
5. PS2
6. Wii/PS3
7. Wii U
8. Switch

Basically my view was that Atari was great, and then they messed up.  Then Nintendo was even better until they messed up.  Playstation was also really good, and then they messed up.  Now I am back with Nintendo again until they mess up.

This was pretty much my console history.



I've been playing games since before I can remember, and the first console on the list is one I don't remember owning, though I do remember playing games from it. Just didn't think it was at home, I guess.

1. NES
2. SNES / Mega Drive
3. PS1
4. PS2
5. Xbox 360
6. Wii U
7. Switch

If I was a person with money to spare, which I'm not quite, I think I'd have an Xbox Series X by now.




I make music, check it out here on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Youtube!

Gen 2: Intellivision
Gen 3: NES
Gen 4: SNES
Gen 5: N64
Gen 6: n/a*
Gen 7: Xbox 360
Gen 8: PS4 initially, followed by Xbox One X
Gen 9: Xbox Series X

*I didn't really have a primary to speak of during Gen 6. That was the gaming nadir for me. I probably spent the most time with the Xbox, but pretty much just for Halo. In terms of number of games, though, it would have been the GameCube.
