After all the usual consoles, (cant remember the name of the first one, but it struggled to play pong), i first saw a PC game called Kingpin and was hooked, WOW!! on-line was great, you had to wait ages for a spot to come free just to get on a server. Playing another human and not AI, brilliant. Ah, 56k Dial up, those were the days too, lol.
1. A square box with a very small cartridge. About 1976ish. I think it was called a Grandstand games console, one racing game had cars like squished frogs.
2. The first Spectrum was a Sinclair Spectrum.
3. Then the ZX Spectrum.
4. Then the Sega Megadrive.
5. Then the NES.
6. Then the SNES.
7. Then the Nintendo 64, (GoldenEye, what a game), PS1, PS2, Xbox, Xbox 360.
8. And of course, in the middle of all this, the PC. It was a monster, two and a half gig HDD lol.
By the way archie123, great idea for a thread. Happy days eh ?. Theres nothing like a walk down memory lane.
