Atari 2600, I got one after my 6th or 7th birthday, I remember they had these really lame commericials touting "Under $50 bucks or less", I got in a bit late, Nintendo, I believe had already debuted the nes. My friend gave me Dig Dug, first game I really liked, played it at his house for about a year before I got my own system. Got a nintendo the next year for my birthday.

i don't know which came first the atari 2600 or commodore 64. but it was either one of those two systems.

Commodore VIC20 or Atari 2600 for me... though we had an Intellivision around the same time. Could have been one of the old Atari SX something or other computers too, my aunt had one of those and I played a lot of cool old games on that.

A device that played Pong and several variations of Pong (I think). Followed that with an Atari 5200 maybe. Somewhere in there was the TI-99/4A. But, I also played some Mattel game (I think it was). It was football game where you had buttons that moved little dashes around. I also had a baseball one like that. It was a long time ago. It's hard to remember for sure.

PC of course. It was a 386 or something of the like.
I played Wolfenstein 3D on it. That's the first game I ever remember playing. This was before Doom1 came out. Wolf owned all back then. I'd play through the whole game multiple games.

The first game system I ever owned was a hanimex pong game, that also played several other bat & paddle type games.
I didn't get another gaming system/computer after that until the Commodore64 arrived.

Pong from Sears
