    Neither - I was a Sinclair child.

    I miss my 81. It was slow, incredibly limited and would crash if you so much as breathed on the RAMpack, but it made me happy.

    I was actually a Commodore 64 child. Then a Nintendo child. In the 90's I upgraded to Sega. When Doom came out for consoles I upgraded to the 32X add-on. Last console I ever got before switching fully over to premade HP PC's.

    Nintendo 64 over Sega systems

    But I have had many from Atari 2600 all the way up to Playstation 3, And the best for games back then would be Commodore 64 and Amiga 500, Amiga 500 destroyed everything in it's day.
    Just game on an enthusiast pc these days

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

    Was born in '92, first go on a console ever was a SEGA Megadrive but my first games machine was an original Nintendo GameBoy, with the grey enclosure and the black and green screen. I think my parents paid £8 for it off my cousin.

    I played Pokemon Yellow for hours upon hours upon hours on that thing, probably responsible, single-handedly, for the contribution of at least 15,000,000,000,000 AA batteries going to landfill on that thing.

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

    I was a 70's kid. Atari 2600 followed by Commodore 64 then Amiga 500.
    In the nineties I knew friends who had a SNES, so we played a ton of Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo and MK2.

    Sega or Nintendo! Lets put it this way, Calculators didn't exist when I was a kid. Slide Rules still ruled the day. So my fave pastimes were Hiking, Camping & Cycling.

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

    Brand loyalty is just silly. Even more so for a games console. I just got access to whatever I could as a kid and enjoyed it. Probably had more fun with Nintendo but used and/or owned almost all the systems from 8 bit onwards. I think only real gap of the main stream (Sega/Sony/Nintendo/Microsoft) stuff is a PS4...

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

    Neither.
    I bought a Spectrum 48K because it was cheap... and later a 128K +3 came my way.
    I first got a NES in the early-mid 90s, after I had a... errr... oh, what was it..... 286 or 386, I think?
    Bought a GB Pocket late 90s.
    Then got a gaming laptop on long-term loan for things like Baldur's Gate, while also using the work PC for things like Thief.
    Got a Netbook late 2000s and tried Tomb Raider Legend on that... It could just about cope with Freelancer, though.
    Then got a proper gaming PC around 2009 and not looked back since.......


    ... OK, I lied. I looked back and got a GBA SP and a DS Lite a couple years ago, but that was purely for fun. GBA lives in my EDC bag, to this very day!!

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

    Oooh boy, this could be a while.

    I remember playing on a C64 (With a floppy disk drive, as well as the ubiquitous cassette tapes) and later on an Amiga 500 (Loved that machine, along with some favourites including Pinball Fantasies, Cannon Fodder, Lemmings, Lotus Turbo Challenge 3, etc.).

    Around the same time a 286 PC showed up on the house, along with it's CGA screen. I didn't really do much with that. As it got upgraded with an EGA, and then VGA, screen it got slightly more interesting. Then it was a 386SX-25 and Doom came out. Yeah, it was as jerky as hell (No maths coproessor made it horribly slow to play such a game) but that was it. I was hooked. A PC has been my mainstay ever since. (486-DX4-100, Pentium 133, Pentium 200 MMX, Pentium 2-350 (OC'ed to 434), AMD Athlon 900, Pentium 4 (HT) 3.2GHz, Core 2 Quad Q6600 (Yeah, I'm still, somehow, using that)).

    However, along with my falling in love with the PC/Doom, the house did gain a Sega Mega Drive at somepoint. Yeah, I played Sonic (All of them), Micro Machines and whatnot, but I always returned to the PC.

    Handheld-wise, I was initially a Nintendo-bod, with a Game Boy, but I fell in love with the colour-ed screen Sega Game Gear (Had to have a battery pack grips, that thing ate batteries for breakfast, lunch and dinner!). That was about it for consoles though

    So yeah, guess I'm a Sega kid mostly. Never did see the thing about Nintendo, until a friend showed up with an N64 and Goldeneye...

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

    i was a sega kid myself there were few games on nintendont i liked or would play and i can count them on 1 hand. start tropics ( first one only), batman, legend of zelda ( again first one only), castlevania series. in fact those are the only nintendont game titles today that i can clearly name without searching LOL. as far as sega goes i still have my original first gen genesis console with the power base converter sega cd. my library of genesis carts last count was 62 including one of those unofficial non licensed bible games "joshua and the battle of jericho". i was sega all the way through dreamcast and was disappointed when sega folded on consoles of course Mshaft stole design elements and ran with it making the xbox which i becaome an xbox user up to the xboner fail at which time i left consoles.
