What was your gaming history?

by Anayo Wed Feb 08, 2017 1:36 pm

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?

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
