History? Dynasty? Chain? I'm not really sure what to call this so I'll show you what mine looked like:

1994 - NES
1995 - Sega Genesis
1998 - N64
2003 - Gamecube
2009 - PC
2015 - Wii U
2019 - hopefully Nintendo Switch and a PC with an HTC Vive.

Your turn.

Are we talking when we got each platform we own or what and when each of our "main" gaming platforms were?

1997 - PC (generic family PC)

2004 - Xbox (Halo Edition!!!)
2005 - GCN (in addition to the Xbox)

That's it, more or less. I didn't include handhelds and some of my dates are subject to a bit of human memory error but... it's pretty close.

Each main generational upgrade. Like, "Oh, in 1992 I upgraded from an NES to a SNES, then in 1995 from SNES to a PlayStation." If retro stuff bought years after its heyday were included in there, I think it would get too complicated. XD

Oh, sorry haha.

In that case: Mega Drive --> Dreamcast -> GameCube -> Original XBox --> PS3 --> Wii U -> PS4 -> Switch

2010 - Saturn, Master System, Sega 32X, Game Gear
2011 - 3DS
2012 - PS3, 360, TurboGrafx-16, Xbox, Intellivision, HyperScan, 5200, 7800, Wii U

Someone needs to come in here and post something earlier than 1988! I'm feeling old all of the sudden...

Bone? Where are you? :wink:
