      I did, right at the ass end of the 6th-gen. I got a PS2 in 2001, a GC and Dreamcast (which was my cousin's, but he let me keep it) in 2002, and an Xbawks hueg in 2003. In the 5th-gen, I never had a Saturn, but I did get a PSOne, which I later sold to get a PS2, and I also got an N64 later (which was also my cousin's, but he had two, so once again he let me have one, yes he was a richgay).

        Correction, the Xbox was in 2004. I then sold it the year after to get a 360 near launch, which I regret.

    Not idort but I usually ended up with two consoles per-generation, partially due to my older sister. Gen 4 we had Genesis and SNES, gen 5 I had N64 and she had PS1 (which later became mine), and gen 6 I had GCN and she got PS2. My cousin is the one who had all of the cool SEGA stuff past the Genesis (Game Gear, Saturn, Dreamcast, etc.)

    I bought a bunch of different pong consoles from garage sales when I was in middle school

    I just got whatever console my parents would buy for me for christmas. I had NES, SNES (very short period of time), N64 and Gamecube. I stopped playing console video games around gen 6 because I got more into playing PC games.
    I'm actually playing games from PS1 and PS2 because I never owned either system and was always envious of the friends who had them because I felt like it was the better deal at the time, and I was right.

    If you weren't an idort in the 90s you weren't really a video gamer imo.

      You didn't need to have everything, you just needed to have at least one console per generation AND a computer. Otherwise this is how moronic console warriors are made.

    No fricking clue what idort means, but based on what i can surmise from the other posts:

    Late 80s/early 90s my intro to gaming was grand pappys C64, early PC compatibles and the dawn of the multimedia era, LCD games and arcade games. My cousins and friends had consoles and throughout the 90s i bought systems secondhand. N64 and gameboy color were the first systems i would say i bought when they were still at the height of their popularity. While i have my preferences, i never really favored one manufacturer brand.

      I had a DC and an N64, at least. Before that, a Game Gear and a Game Boy. What do I win?

      Meme from like 2009 that refers to people that weren't involved in a console war because they already had every console from the current generation. You sound like you were one (and that's a compliment).

    By 2004 I had a Gamecube, an Xbox, a PS2, a GBA, and my own PC. I was an only child with two working parents who were both gamers.

    As a kid I was spoiled by my grandma and got most of what I wanted except for esoteric shit like Neo Geo.
    As a 9 or 10 year old I had Genesis, Super Nintendo, Game Gear and Game Boy, possibly the best childhood ever, I feel sorry for people when I see them desperately console warring to defend their half-childhood with only either snes or genesis. I also had a 486 PC that could run most relevant games of the time like Doom, etc.
    On 5th gen I was PS1, N64 and Saturn, all three. And Game Boy Color.
    I entered adolescence during 6th gen and was more interested in girls and music than video games, and when I wanted my vidya fix I'd just hook up my old reliable consoles, or emulate something. I got a DC ans Gamecube around 2001/2002 but I sold them quickly after playing some stuff (melee was a huge hit with friends, ngl). I played ps2 at friends houses or we would switch gc for ps2 a few times, but yeah I only got my first ps2 much later in 2009.
    Around that time I also became a DS/PSP idort, and had a Wii and a PS3.
    It's been just PC after that but I barely play modern stuff.

    Yeah. Not quite rich parents, just well-off parents. and rich grandparents

    We had Gameboys as well as Game Gears, and then later Game Boy Colors and GBAs. SNES and Genesis. My brother got an N64 in '96, and then we got a PS1 for chrimbo in '98. Xbox and GC in 2001, then PS2 in 2002. DS at launch, and then I used my saved-up money to buy myself a PSP in 2005.

    Since the late 2000s though I've mostly been a Nintendo+Sony+PC idort. Don't have a PS5 though because >nogaems lmao

    Dad had a NES and 7800

    >gen 4
    Dad bought me SNES and Genny. Didn’t know that TG16 existed

    >gen 5
    Dad bought me a PS1 at launch. I saved up money from working as a bagboy to buy an N64 at launch. Was not interested in the Saturn, never saw it in K/Wal Mart.

    >gen 6
    Stacked up a lot of money in this era working my summers at fruit packing houses, routinely working 60+ hours a week. Bought PS2 at launch. Bought Xbox at launch. Bought Gamecube around 2002 or so.

    >computers
    Dad had an Apple 2, 386, Win 95 machine.
    Bought myself a WinME machine which I subsequently updated to XP. Was my standard gaming rig.

    >handhleds
    Only had the trusty brick GB and tiger electronics games

    Almost, and on accident, too. My dad got me a Dreamcast after he saw me playing it at KBToys, and I got an Xbox and gamecube for Christmas when they came out. Had a gameboy color, of course. Somehow, for some reason, I never had a PS2 at the time. Never really knew much about it either.

    My parents had a ton of money (millionaires) but they hated gaming and games and regarded it all as a plague. They let me have two consoles when I was growing up and told me that when I'm 18 and making my own money and living somewhere else, then I can buy whatever dumb shit I want with my own funds.
    I'm late to the party. Sucks too because I'll never get to experience the same nostalgia as others in my age bracket.

    6th Gen I had a job so it was pretty easy. I did buy a Genesis around 1999 or so to complement my SNES but that probably doesn’t count.

    It was the one perk of divorced parents. Mom's house had SNES, dad's had Sega Genesis
