Nes with duck hunt/super mario cartridge

Around the Network

My first taste of gaming was the Atari ST :)

Then that was followed with the Sega Mega Drive + Sonic 1 but it was dead out the box :(

My stepdad took it to Sega Europe HQ to complain and they gave him a Sega Mega Drive II + EA Sports Double Header as a way of saying sorry.

Best bit was that we got to keep Sonic 1 as well. So that's an updated model + 3 games for the price of an original one. Happy days.

The NES. I had the Commodore 64 before that, but even though it was about as close to being a console as a computer can get, it cannot count.

Should be a poll!
Intelliivision. best memories: Dungeons and Dragons Treasure of Tarmin - all 99 levels baby, the platinum book ruled. And the shortcut my brother found in auto racing.

Trying to convince me the Wii is a real adult game machine 'if you play it right' is like trying to convince me Tofu tastes great 'if you just cook it right'

I am Kong.

Strong and passionate, I tend to be misunderstood, sometimes even feared. I don't want to fight, I don't want to cause trouble, all I ask is a little love, and a little peace. If I don't get what I want, I get angry, and throw barrels and flaming oil at whatever's stopping me. What Video Game Character Are You?

My father has had a Colecovision and an intellivision after. The first one they bought for me was a NES.

2010 Hardware Sales Predictions

Wii: 20m- Sales will drop, but not by much.

PS3: 13.5m- It sold 12m in 2009, its only common sense it will sell more this year.

Xbox 360: 11m- It sold 11m in 2008 and 2009, I think it will sell the same.

My Fanboy Speech...

Why do you have to make excuses to defend a product that you purchased, but that's the only connection you have to it, you don't make it, you don't lose or gain money on it. I don't see where all of the defensiveness comes in, there is no reason for you or anybody else to feel obligated to defend it. Now I would understand if one of you were a developer for the product and you slaved over said product only to hear somebody call it stupid or a piece of junk. But none of you developed it, none of you are mature enough to realize that. Choosing a product all comes down to preference, you chose said product because it is best for you. Simple as that!

PS1? I am too young=(
