    nintendo consoles

    i would like to know why everyone bought or didnt buy nintendo consoles
    heres my reasons for each console

    1.NES: for the nes i didnt have a choice in the matter as i was born in 1989 and we got it in 1990 or 91 but im sure glad we got one because i still have it today as its the system i grew up on

    2.SNES: man o man i would have loved this when i was little as i used to play it at one of my friends house's but alas i was to young yet again

    3.N64: before christmas of 97 my brother influenced my decision by telling me how great the playstation was and when it came i didnt quite agree that is untill it broke and at xmas of 99 we got our n64 as our playstation had broken. as i soon found out the only games i really could get into on the n64 were the james bond games perfect dark conkers bad fur day and mario tennis other then that nothing could get me excited as i had tried mario 64 and hated it while i began to notice the lack of good games that were designed for teenagers.

    4.gamecube: when it came to 2003 just after my birthday in mid august i had a decision to make on what system to choose as i had saved up enough money here is why the gamecube was out of the question
    -the controllers have a sub par layout at best it seems like no real thought put into it
    -lack of games for the mature gamer in mind
    -lack of 3rd party support
    -and no online
    i ended up buying an xbox but i almost got to a ps2 as they both had everything a gamecube didn't the xbox had a harddrive great online which i never took advantage of but still the xbox and ps2 are far suppirior

    5.wii: the wii coupled with the ds is a breath of fresh air from nintendo that has got me excited about nintendo again and it will be my primary system as it will alow me to play all the new games for it and all the old games that i loved for previous nintendo consoles

    i want to say thank you to nintendo as you have got me excited in new ways about gaming ;and showing me that to rule you dont have to have the best graphics in a system you just need some inovation and damn fine gameplay

    i just want to say that i am not a micrsoft; playstation or nintendo fanboy i am a console gaming fanboy

    attarie or however u spell it but I got the nes cuz yes I was to young for influence but I did beat zelda before I could ride a bike and that's how I learned to read haha um I never got a snes cuz again I was to young I never got a 64 either because as martini said it didn't really have games that interested me and the ones that did my friends had them and I practically lived at his house so we always played it together so I had no need I got a gc for ssbm and for enternal darkness but it neverreally had mature audience games that were interesting but pso was good I gt the original gb u know the grey brick haha but I never really got into portable gaming due to the batteries then this year me and friends wanted to play pokémon red,blue and yellow again so I just stole my ex gfs gbsp cuz the chargibility then she took it back 8/ umm ds I didn't get cuz well I just was kicked out of my house and was broke so out of the question but I'm settled now and te ds looks great and I'm getting the wii cuz its going to revolutionize gaming yeah

    to be honest i didnt really care about the handhelds untill the ds and psp came out and nintendo dominated that market untill the psp gave them a bit of a fight so it is really no contest on who you would choose from 1980-2005
    the only handheld ive ever owned was a gameboy pocket with 2 games battletank and pokemon blue
    Wii setup: 1 Wii console, 2 Wii motes, 2 Nunchuck attachments, and Wii sports

    NES: had it before i was born and i started playing when i was 3
    Gray GB: got it from my parents when they gave my bro and sis ones also
    Red GB (still the really old ones): got it from a friend on my b-day. i was glad because it worked better than my gray one
    SNES: my bro got one for himself but shared with me
    N64: begged my parents to get me one because "all my friends had one"
    GC: my bro and i rented a GC and SSBM but we couldnt turn it off because we didnt have a memory card. I got a paper route and made enough money to buy one, but my dad bought me one for christmas anyway
    GBA SP: bought with my own money. I was behind the times with GBs so i thought i would catch up.
    DS: liked the concept so i made enough money to buy it and SM64 DS
    Wii: so far ive made enough money for the console. now all i need is money for the games.
    When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much screwed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    well the virtual boy was not a hand held (you needed a flat surface to put it on)

    yes i didnt post that but it was for a reason that i stated above and i know about these systems but i focus more on consoles and i wouldnt consider the virtual boy a console partially because of its major flop on the market and also that it wasn't really a handheld or a home console and gameboy advanced, gameboy advanced sp, and gameboy micro are all the same system, i guess i will list the reasons i didnt buy the handhelds here

    1.Game and Watch: most of them are older then me and its very hard to find working ones these days as they are now a collectors item, still i kinda want one just for bragging rights

    2.gameboy/gameboy pocket: it was 1998 when the pokemon craze hit me and like any other kid i wanted pokemon red and/or pokemon blue so i pleaded my case to my parents and grandparents to get me a gameboy pocket with pokemon for my birthday and low and behold when august 8th came around i jumped for joy as i got my first handheld gaming system

    3.gameboy colour: it seemed that as soon as i got my gameboy pocket the gameboy colour came out and everyone but me had one. so after a few months trying to convince my parents to get me one i gave up and i haven't tried to get a handheld since

    4.virtual boy:i never heard of this untill it was gone into obscerity

    5.gameboy advanced/sp/micro: although i would like a gameboy advanced i feel i have no need for one at this point in time as i dont see anything new about it as they are pretty much a handheld snes

    6.ds: i want it i want it lol im getting one after i get my wii
    Wii setup: 1 Wii console, 2 Wii motes, 2 Nunchuck attachments, and Wii sports

    i think you are thinking about colecovision which was made jointly with nintendo and you are also thinking about the atari 2600
