Major video game consoles that you never played?

I have never played a Sega Saturn, PlayStation 3 or PlayStation 4.

What major video game consoles have you never played?

Re: Major video game consoles that you never played?

Never played or never owned? I think I played all of them, I never owned:
Colecovision
Sega Master System (though I did have the adapter for the Genesis and played PS1 and others through it)
Neo Geo
Atari Lynx
Sega Game gear
Atari Jaguar
3DO
Virtual Boy
Neo Geo Pocket
Wonderswan
N-Gage

On a side note, as a kid we only had Macs and my parents were adamant that the consoles were for games and the computer was for other stuff, so I missed out on a ton of computer games until around the Doom era.

Thanks for your reply. Sorry for the confusion and I mean never played. Video game consoles that you never played a single game on.

That would reduce the list to:
Virtual Boy
N-Gage

Though I had a friend who ran the local video game store so we tried out a lot of the smaller consoles. And I had another friend who was such a hardcore console nut that he even bought a jaguar at launch (and had a lynx)

Only ones I can think of are the N64 and Gamecube.
Thatís not counting handheld systems since I have never really been a handheld gamer.

Neo Geo.

the original Game Boy unless you count a couple minutes at their demo kiosk. I couldn't get passed the blurry mess of the image on those, although I eventually picked up the Gameboy Color which fixed most of the issues with the original screen. I was big on my Lynx back then though.

Re: Major video game consoles that you never played?

What is your definition of "major" video game consoles? Because a huge amount of consoles listed are in no way "major" unless the definition is any commercially released video game console.

Re: Major video game consoles that you never played?

It's hard to recall as there were almost always those kiosks where you could try the system available everywhere so I'm sure I've played most.

My best guess:

Neo Geo
Lynx

Probably only played on a demo
Sega Saturn
3DO
Virtual Boy
PS4

I just assumed major was commercially released and not limited release, and I didn't count the minor revisions like PSP Go, GB Color, DSi, etc. But I listed those mainly for completeness sake.

If all we're counting are the Atari 2600, then the Nintendo, Sega, Sony and Microsoft systems, I can understand that too. Although man some of you never played a NES or SNES?

NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U, Switch (all owned)
Gameboy, GBC, GBA, DS, 3DS (all owned)
Virtua Boy (played)
Sega Master System (played)
Sega Genesis (owned)
Sega Game Gear (played)
Sega Saturn (never played)
Sega Dreamcast (owned)
Sony Playstation 1, 2, 3, 4 (all owned)
PSP & Vita (never played)
Microsoft Xbox (played)
Xbox 360, Xbox One (owned)

Re: Major video game consoles that you never played?

I have never played an XBOX nor an XBONE and never intend to. Only ever played a 360 a handful of times because of my sister way back when.
XBOX 360 controllers to me have a terrible design and makes my hands hurt trying to play it for very long. As someone with large hands, the Playstation controllers are much more comfortable.

Re: Major video game consoles that you never played?

Weird, Iíd say the 360 controller is probably the most comfortable Iíve used, and I have pretty big hands (I am a DVDtalk member, after all. Know what I mean? Know what I mean? Say no more, say no more).

Thanks for your reply. Sorry for the confusion, and I am referring to the Atari 2600 as well as all the Nintendo, Sega, PlayStation and Xbox home consoles.

I've heard the exact opposite complaint from anyone who has a preference. I have small hands and much prefer the Playstation controllers.

Neo Geo
Atari Lynx
Atari Jaguar
3DO

The Sega Saturn is like the girl I always wanted, but was never able to get a date with her. When they were released, I really wanted one. I looked high and low and nobody was carrying them in my area. Turns out to be a blessing because it flopped, but that will always be the one that got away.

I distinctly remember playing a display Virtual Boy a few times at KB Toys. It was terrible, and I don't think I ever saw one in the wild outside of that store.

I never played the Master System, 2600, or any of those mid 90s attempts at making 3D happen for $700 like the 3DO.

How was the 3DO to those who played it? It seemed to have some cool 3D effects a few years before the 64.

They were on clearance for $25 brand new in 1996. To this day I am in amazement that it was such a huge failure that it would be reduced in price to that degree. Some of the damn games were more expensive than the console itself (Waterworld for one).
