That's where I stole my forum name from fair and square! Seems like it was the name of an Autumn Dragon if I remember correctly. We're talking about a game that I haven't seen for many, MANY years, but I retain the name!

I don't have any of that hardware anymore, so I'll keep it short by saying that I was born in '72 and have played with most everything that has been pictured here.

My oldest functional "hardware" is an 1989 Gameboy wich I only got as a present second hand in like 1993 from a friend in Germany. Bought myself a brand new Gameboy Color some years later after that when I first visited Germany myself.



Acces to good consoles and PCs in those early post-communist times was very limited here in my country and chinese counterfeit/fake crap reigned for many, many years. And since I was still very much a kid I had a thing for handhelds and was satisfied until I got my first PC and borrowed a PS1 from a rich neighbour on a regular basis.

Well, I don't have access to all my old crap to get pictures but I'll list it anyway....

Atari 800XL - In parents' attic
Also had the printer, 5.25" floppy drive AND tape drive

NES - In parents' attic

SNES - Sold for $50 back in 2000

Packard Bell (can't seem to find any pictures but I believe it was an 800LX) - In parents' attic last check

Nintendo GameCube - Actually sitting on the bottom of my TV stand....lol. Bought it when my license was suspended in 2004. Was all I could afford after paying fines and bills. Yes, mine is actually Silver like in the pic...lol. It actually hasn't been turned on since 2006.

I'm at work so I had to get pics from the web, but I still have both:

Atari 2600 with about 30 games




Classic football by Mattel



They both still work. it's funny to come home and see my daughter playing Missile Command


Also I still have Simon, but it stopped making the beep sounds a few years ago.

Thanks for the comments! I've been collecting for about 5 years now! My wife and our friends love coming over for parties and playing the classics that we all grew up with.

Of course, I am into modern gaming as well!
