Oldest console - how about the original Atari 2600!!! Still got mine, still works, and still fire it up to play my bazillion cartidges when I feel like doing it "old skool". Love those rapid-fire joysticks.

Call me an old fart if you like, but collectors out there would envy my setup - still in brand-spanking new condition.

N64, with Waverace 64 as the first game ever. God, it is so nostalgic to go to Youtube and listen to the Opening Theme... *going to Youtube*

well.. ofcouse my old n64 goldeneye or perfect dark gets fired up occasionally, but the oldest I still wish i had, is surely the snes, and some nes games, but nowadays when we are used to savegames, most nes games are kinda frustrating.. never played sega or atari.. seems like my country was nintendo..

I was player Conker emulated recently.
Just gave away my xbox and 20-30 games however.
Own a Sega Genesis, but it hasn't been used in around 2 years.
I don't even use my PS2 anymore though.

XBOX 360 is the oldest system... my computer is newer (which I play everything else on).

Well i like to play Final Fantasy on the NES. Civilization, and Sim Ant on SNES, Perfect Dark on N64. I'm sure I could keep going on and on, but the ones I still have and play are SNES and N64 and that for the Zelda Games I still play. Oh and I don't know if this one is old yet, but I do like Wind Waker on the Game Cube. LONG LIVE NINTENDO!!! MARIO FOR EVER!!!!

Atari 2600, NES, Master System, Genesis, SNES, Game Boy, Saturn, PlayStation, N64, Wii

Unfortunately my Xbox stopped working a while back, or else it would be on this list too. Also, while I do play the 2600 every now and again, the Genesis gets the most time out of all of these, including the Wii (well, until this Tuesday, but I've even been taking that slow, and am just now up to Mr.Sandman).

The oldest currently hooked up is SNES, on which I regularly play Super Mario RPG. I have had my Atari 7800 hooked up recently, with which I was playing Centipede. Right now my 32" 1080i/720p HDTV has the SNES, Dreamcast, Playstation 3, and PC attached to it. Just today I played every single one of those systems: Super Mario RPG on the SNES, Crazy Taxi on the Dreamcast, Rock Band 2 on the PS3, and Flatout: Ultimate Carnage on the PC.

Easy: technically the PC; but the NES never gets old.
I also enjoy a casual game of Perfect Dark on the N64 every once in a while.

i used to have a sega megadrive and super nintendo but both stopped working (dam slot became too touchy) - i still play them on my pc (emulation, not the same but close enough, prefer the original i paid for but cant).

I still love to play my old Super NES games. I wish I had a Sega Genesis. I have fond memories playing with my next door neighbor on his NES and Sega. I haven't done any emulator stuff with my PC yet, but I think that I'm going to have to go figure that out now.

NES, though I wish my Intellivision still worked...

I usually play most games via emulators setup in MaximusArcade, decent frontend app, though not free. I don't want to cause any more wear-and-tear on the old systems, want to show them to the kids some day. That, & I'm not a big fan of losing my FF1 save-games because someone bumped the table...

NES always and forever. I still have one connected at my grandparents house for every time we go visit.

We play all of the Mario Bros.(of course), but also battletoads, super tecmo football (best football game ever made lol), WHEEL OF FORTUNE haha, Metroid, Duck Hunt(still have the plastic gun at it works-the most sturdy controllers EVER built hands down), and maybe one or two more that i can't remember.

ahhhhh those were the days. the days where a cheat code was getting a turtle shell to bounce between two blocks getting your life count to 100 by killing a bunch of little green things :) 

I'd like to get a controller for my pc dedicated to those emulations. those old controllers just can't be beat on how they feel and play in those games.

The oldest game console i use on a regular base would be my sega saturn singstar is just not as fun as virua cop or house of the dead after a night on the town.
On rainy days i like to play Panzerdragoon, and now i think of it the only thing i really think my collection needs is a PAL version of Panzerdragiin saga.

If the old home computers count for being consoles then i would have to scrap saturn and have to go with my MSX as once in a while (roughly once a month) i walk in to some tapes and i try to load them (you would be amazed how many tapes just died in a box of garbage).

I have been a relatively active collector for years and have all the 8 but to 128 bit systems i could find and the only systems missing from my collection are the exotic ones summed down to NeoGeo AES NeoGeo CD and Jaguar CD and the Amiga CD
