I personally own and play games on a ______________.

This poll is open to everyone, and you can choose more than one. Please do not turn this into a "_____ sucks" or "what do you have against ______" thread.

Choose all that you have and post 'em below.

I currently own:

GameCube
GameBoy Advance (1st gen, SP and micro)
PC

[it]Edit to add: I'm sticking with the current generations that are continually supported with new game development. PS1s can be lumped into PS2. Sorry to those who still have their Dreamcasts and Sega machines close to their hearts. [/i]

this [currently] isn't actually a poll, but anyway...

i tend to focus on one per generation.

PC [3 in house, 2 hooked up] [although not my primary gaming platform]
PS2 on the downstairs tv

Dreamcast
PS1
Sega Gen/32x/CD all on the 'bonus room' tv

NES and Atari 7800 in boxes in the garage.

I've perused the GB/GBA/PSP/DS thing, but I am not into handheld gaming, and don't have much of a place to play them, so the last handheld I had was the original Game Boy

Everything on that list except 360 and PSP. I typically wait for there to be a game or two I *need* before I get a console. My N64 is still hooked up as well, but the Revolution should probably replace it and the Gamecube if the retro-gaming is what I hope it to be.

You can't own MAME. It's not a console and it only plays illegally downloaded games. I'm not sure why it's an option.

I've got a Gamecube but I'm probably going to sell it to get some extra cash to use towards a 360, assuming I can actually find one.

I thought about that myself, so I tried to change the thread title to "I personally own and play games on a ______________." but I was too late.

If a mod sees this and changes the thread title to "I personally own and play games on a ______________." that would be appreciated.

PS2

I got a DS as a surprise gift for X-mas, but I'll probably exchange it for something else since I don't play my PS2 enough to justify having another gaming system.

Own 360, PS2 and PC.

Selling the PS2 and I really don't use the PC for gaming much, so pretty much just 360.

I think that choice is supposed to be for a dedicated MAME machine that you built or had someone build for you.

I forgot about the Sega Genesis I have buried in a box somewhere.

That's what I thought as well.

I'm surprised at how evenly the numbers are spread out right now.

2x Sony Playstation 2
2x Dreamcast
Sony Playstation Portable (PSP)
Nintendo GameCube
Nintendo GameBoy Advance SP
Sony PS1
Nintendo Dual Screen (DS)
Personal Computer .

Being 26 and actually listing what I have at home I actually realize I will never get a chance to play all the systems and enjoy them to the fullest unlike when I was 16 or 17. So sad at 16 having all the best systems and games was like a dream now I cant even enjoy at this age to the fullest. So sad

PS2
PS1
Gamecube
N64
SNES
GBA
GB Color
XBox
Dreamcast
Genesis (great)/Sega CD (crap)
PC

I think that's all. The PC gets the most gaming use (World of Warcraft) but the PS2 has been getting some lately due to I Heart Katamari, and the Gamecube gets used regularly. The XBox hardly ever . The older systems hardly get played either, but I keep them and the games so I can justify playing the emulators on my PC--Genesis and SNES have most of my favorite games ever on them.

Also have a CPS2 Arcade machine which has Darkstalkers running on it, one day i will get around to switching it to Super Street Fighter II.

Honestly the only 2 that see any real action are my PC and PS2.
