1,698 voters participated in this survey

Gamers are everywhere with gaming systems (ones that connect directly to a TV) that would have been unbelievable to us in those early days. The graphics on some games today look better than movies did when we had the original early game consoles.

We were amazed to see pong, excited by the graphics of Crystal Castles then came the mouth dropping graphics of games like Legend of Zelda. OOooOO, color -AND- much better moves!

I have early game consoles that I still play (probably more than I should). I'm focused on the stand alone systems, not the computers that also played games (like a Commodore) Are there others out there who still play old consoles?
