Re: Are you the original owner of your retro systems?

Only my (very yellow) SNES and Game Boy are originally owned by me. My original NES had orange juice spilled on it. I'm sure the pin connector was shit too, so I bought a refurbished one.

Just my NES and PS1. Although technically it was my wife's NES that she took w/ her when she moved out but yeah it's still an original. The following retro's I had to buy used since the originals were either busted or stolen:
Sega CD

I'm not sure if PS2, Xbox, Gamecube, Dreamcast, and GBA are considered retro but those are also mine originally.
I am addicted to video games, especially retro gaming from my era. I have: NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, Gameboy, GBA, Wii, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, Xbox, and Xbox 360. I have probably over 1,000 games in total for all these systems combined. Yes, I need help and I wouldn't have it any other way! This is my passion and hey my wife still loves me!!

My Genesis. That's it though.
I'm still not sure whether I'm a kid or a squid now.

My list:

Gameboy (brick)

I think that is all of them. Unfortunately, I would've been an original owner of a Virtual Boy, 32X, Sega CD, 3DO and some others but my Dad fucking threw them out when he moved out of his house. I have since replaced the 32X and Sega CD. :(

Then the newer systems:

Systems that I have at least one that I'm the original owner of:

SNES (was the second one for my family, but my own personal one at the time)
GC (traded in my first one, but second one new when Wind Waker came out + free game promo)
GBA (traded my first one in, second one was bought new as well)
DS Lite
Genesis 3
Game Gear (well, at my parent's house...somewhere...)
PS3 (two bought new, an MGS4 bundle and a Slim)

Systems that I did get new at one time, were sold/given away at some point, but reacquired:

NES 1 (gave to my cousin when we got a Genesis, as per parental edict)
Genesis 2 (brothers sold at swap meet)
32X (see Genesis 2)
Saturn (brother traded it all in to Software Etc when I was at college :evil: )

Systems I got new, but no longer own an example of at all:

Game Boy
Virtual Boy

Systems I have, but have never bought new:

Genesis 1
Sega CD (1 and 2)
Dreamcast (was still during its prime, bought during employee discount day at Software Etc, and I only got a discount on a used one. I did buy one brand new for one of my brothers...but it got stolen out of my bag on the way to Germany to give it to him).
