    Re: QOTW: Were you a Sega or Nintendo child?

    It was both for me.

    NES, SNES, Master System II and Megadrive II were all ones I had access to at home (although I only specifically owned the Master System II myself) at some time or another, as well as a Commodore 64 and Amiga (no idea which version) at one point.

    Sega. Like many here had a Master System II then a Megadrive.

    Then I went backwards age wise with a second hand DOS-based PC (primarily for Formula One Grand Prix (AKA Grand Prix 1) and Indy 500) and from there on was PC only. I've not owned a console since.

    Re: QOTW: Were you a Sega or Nintendo child?

    Neither.

    Started gaming on an IBM S360 (*) in mid/late '60s, then to writing games on an ICL 1905 (*) until about '77. Nothing much for a couple of years, then Apple IIe in, err, '79 I think. That was mainly business, and development, but I did play games .... like the very early Wizardry.

    Moved to PC in (IIRC) 1983, and primary gaming machine was a PC until current day. I did have a PS2 for about 2 years (thanks for the loan, Sony) and then an Xbox 360 a couple of years later .... which I still have.

    So that means I've been computer gaming for something like 53 or 54 years. Anyway beat that?



    (*) Those machines were heavy iron. Serious mainframes.

    Re: QOTW: Were you a Sega or Nintendo child?

    I never owned any, and I think I only briefly tried either back in the early 90's after going round to a friends house - I vaguely remember them being the SNES and Megadrive. Indeed, I never had anything computer related for a long time, and I spent more time with another friends Spectrum, Amiga, and Commodore systems than with Nintendo or Sega systems. I finally got access to a PC in 1996, and I have stuck with PC's ever since.

    Neither. I had an Acorn electron and then a BBC Model B until I could switched to a 486DX66. I've stayed with PCs ever since and still don't really understand why people buy consoles.
