    My parents had a PlayStation when I was very little, so I'd play on it when I was a bit older. But first console for myself was my GameBoy Colour.

    Super Nintendo, man I loved that thing! Closely followed by a Sega Megadrive.
    One day I returned home from school to find that my dad had sold both of the consoles and bought a PS1, I was devastated at first, but then I grew to love the PS1, and the only consoles i've had since have been the PS2 & 3, excluding handhelds.

    This beauty loaded up with Safari Hunt and Hang-On!

    Loved Hang-On! but favourites were Castle of Illusion, Taz-Mania and Lion King.

    Yes one of these in 1988 or 89. I didn't eat or sleep for days.
