I can appreciate that, except that I've never owned a console other than Nintendo. And at one point or another have owned every single one.

I do like the original Nintendo!
Same with the Super Nes possibly two of the greatest consoles.

The original Nintendo is on my to get list as well as a PS2 and i'd be happy with those for now.

WOW!!! Original NES!!! Not to be called a hipster or anything...but i would love to play Tetris again on that thing. Or Mario, Buran, Snake Rattle 'n' Roll, Bionic Commando, Metroid xD. Those were great games. Not as rich in graphics as modern games...but...WOW!!! Some had beautiful stories.

I stumble on to 2 PS2's the previous manager left behind. One is just the box. The other one has 2 memory cards, 2 controllers, and the power pack. And sure enough it works. It's a brown colored box. The other is silver.
If I can find some simple games I'll keep it. If not I'll find a home for it.

Nice. Good idea too, lets turn this into a 'what are you getting for christmas' thread. By the way....everytime this gets brought back up I'm rememinded that my NES is still sitting in the closet because my wife won't let me have it early....

Whoops! Thought that's what it was
Probably should've thoroughly read the posts.

Sorry
