Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

I believe, well I would have to check but, I think my Sega master system still works. I put it away along time ago and kept it sealed not in its box but in a bag wrapped up so no dust gets into the port where you insert the game Cartridges. I wish I would have kept the box, but didn't. The original control pads I still have and the Light Phaser gun, for "duck hunt" game LOL
You know, come to think of it, I don't think I have ever had a problem with any of my gaming systems. Well my computer, but that's because it needs updating in order to play advance games on it.

It was one of the first computers to offer true color. It had its own operating system. I was able to play games like "It came from the desert" "Out of this world" and many other classic games (a lot of swapping of disk), which I cannot remember right off hand. So where do you think Billy boy got his idea??

But yes, that commodore was used for gaming and you were able to buy games for it, did you not??
I loved my Amiga 500 at the time. The hard-drive was housed in its keyboard casing I believe.

Shoot I believe the Amiga was the benchmark for all gaming. It was first tested on that I believe.

Oh the memories...

Ah the memories indeed. Life was so simpler back then. Sure, it is great to have everything at your finger tips now and the amazing technology we have, but sometimes looking back I really yearn for how things were then. Yeah, I am nuts.

I don't recall buying games. We just somehow got them

Oh my gosh, I remember those.. and I totally forgot "Gateway" another that died to quickly. What about the Wang, anyone remember that one, but not sure if you were able to buy it as a personal computer, but I could be wrong??
Holymoley, the memory lane

So, get up this morning on my day off..turn on my Xbox one...nothing Bricked again..just had this one fixed...mother F'R...

Luckily this time I took it straight to the Microsoft store near me..with 30 minutes I had a new one..tech was cool..he was like I'm not even gonna check it since it was "fixed " once before..he went to the back and got me a new console...Awesome!!!!

Only thing that sucks...downloading everything that was not on the External Drives. But I'll take that over waiting to send it out, and then waiting to get it back in 3 weeks.

Sorry to hear your Xbox One bricked again but congrats on a new one and good MS service.

That reminds me I better back up some of my games. Thanks.

I've been buying consoles since the Atari days. I've only had one system go bad and it happened recently. My PS3 died. I have the PS4 but I would use the PS3 as my blu ray player.

My Xbox 360 a few years back after my son started walking and ripped out the disc drawer.
