Poll question and answer choices as suggested by AA user bluejay.

The choices are kinda clumped together IMO, but this is

his ask and is presented exactly as such.

Don't shoot the messanger. Happy New Year to all :)

I'm guessing the last one has some Intellivision, ColecoVision, O2, TI, possibly Channel F folks. Maybe Apple.

I went Atari,  based on the wording.  I thought of "kid" more than "College Kid", which would have meant NES/SNES for me,...

The NES was my first system*, and of all the systems I got after when I was child (Genesis, Game Boy, Game Gear, PlayStation...), it never really left me. I always come back to it. I did a TON of PC gaming on our Packard Bell 486 as well.

 

Where this question gets muddy for me, though, is that I was only in junior high, just going into high school in the late '90s when I started collecting retro systems like Odyssey 2 and Atari 2600, both of which I adore and count as two of my all-time favorite consoles. What's the cutoff for "kid" here? Because if push came to shove, I'd probably have to put the Atari over the NES. (In any case, I voted NES.)

 

*Okay, my first system was actually the ancient Commodore 64 my parents had, but I was only about 5 when it went kaput, and we only had three or four games for it, and I believe we only had it for a short time anyway. But long enough to instill a lifelong fascination with computers and games from the '80s and back!

Got an Atari 8-bit as quickly as I could.

 

(Yah for the cheap Atari 400)

Didn't really have a console when I was young until we got a Gamecube. (yeah I'm a millennial)

 

However I did have a GBC & GBA, but before we got a Gamecube. I was in a bit of a 80's phase in 2004 (blame VH1 lol) so young 8 year old me went searching for old consoles that played Donkey Kong and eventually got an NES from the Flea Market.
