I was born in 1991 and the first console I owned was a SNES. The very first game I played and beat was actually MegaMan 2 on the GBA though. So I started gaming in the 90s which in my opinion was the best time of video games. How about you?

Started gaming on my parents' Colecovision (with Atari adapter) and Odyssey^2 when I was 2-3 years old, and some years later, we got an NES and it went from there.

I consider myself a 90's kid. I had an Atari and an NES but the SNES really captured my attention. And then Super Mario 64 blew my mind.

I'm a gamer of the era in which gaming was solely dominated by Nintendo.

So 1972 - 2018 and ongoing.

My first console was a NES but I only started playing it in the initial 90s, so 90s I guess. Even if from a gaming standpoint it's the 80s.
To err is human, but to really screw things up you need a computer!

80ā€™s gamer here. Started with a ZX Spectrum +2 (with built in datacorder!) that my grandad picked up from a local butcher for cheap then my parents bought me and my brother an NES.

Progressed through all console generations since and Iā€™m still happily gaming, much to the annoyance of the wife šŸ˜‚
