    I grew up in the late 90s, playing Pokemon Red, then Yellow on my old Gameboy. Good times

    Had a NES, sold that and then got a Mega Drive, sold that and then had a Snes. Still have the Snes although I wish i had kept them all

    Snes has far more timeless classics.

    Neither. I was Amiga.

    But before that, I was Acorn Electron.

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

    Not 100% on the order but Atari 2600, sega megadrive (with master system, iirc, add on) and the original brick nintendo game boy so you could say I didn't have any loyalty lol.

    Somewhere in there was a commodore 64 and an atari ste as well.

    Then I basically moved to pc's... and haven't actually had a game console since.

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

    Neither. As a 80's baby I owned(not at the same time though) a Gameboy, a NES, a Game Gear from SEGA, the first Playstation from SONY and lastly a Dreamcast from SEGA.

    Kids in my neighborhood owned the rest of them like the SNES, the Saturn from SEGA, the N64(haaa Golden Eye 64 and Mario kart 64...good times),the Mega Drive 1 & 2, the Game Cube and Playstation 2.

    We pretty much spend hours upon hours on everything at each others houses ending the day with headaches and eye fatigue from playing too long. We played what was great and fun.

    But if I had to pick one I'd choose the Dreamcast which is my favourite console I've ever owned. But I show no loyalty nor preference for any brand so like I said, neither.

    Sega.

    It all started with a Master System II which has Alex the kid in miracle world pre-installed and a cartridge for Sonic the original. I still have it in its box and occasionally dust it off for a game or two.

    Neither. Had an Atari ST. Dad used it for work, and I used it for NewZealand Story, Rainbow Islands, Gods and a whole load more.

    Though I did pick up a gameboy in about ยด98, and have a wii now, so am a nintendo adult more or less.

    Pong.

    Though I did have a friend with an Atari VCS. Too old to have had one of those new-fangled Sega or Nintendo doodads.

    Made up for it when I was older though

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

    In the time between my c64/amiga and PS1 I was a Sega kid with the master system and mega drive, I was going to list some games but there is literally hundreds. I liked the nes, snes and n64 too as I played them with friends and family a lot, I actually have fonder memories of Mario than I do Sonic which is odd considering, but 2 player co-op on sonic 2 in the casino level is straight up nostalgia overload.

    Mega Drive II all the way, then got the Mega CD. Then N64, followed by PS2, then 360 and finally PS3. Now I game on PC!
