The Sega Genesis vs. SNES debate reminded me how many young'ens are on this site.
First console for me was the Odyssey. And one of the best thing about having two pre-teen boys is that I don't see myself not owning the newest video game consoles for many years to come!!
Got a master system and NES the same year.

ColecoVision. Played that thing hours on end. I was awesome at Qbert.
...what a great year. I remember my brother and I getting Sony PlayStation (me) and Sega Saturn (him) the same Christmas.
Ahh, good old fashioned Intellivision in the early 80's.

My parents had the Pong console. The first one that was mine was the Atari 2600.
Loved the wood grain...
Don't forget the awesome controllers. Loved the little circle at the bottom. Plus, games had little cards you'd slide over the number keys that helped you with controls for specific games. You could always tell my brother and I had played a certain game for too long when we knew the buttons without the little cards
Super Nintendo with the cartridges, then N64, then PlayStation then Xbox, then 360.
I would have killed for one of those. My dad was a notorious bargain hunter. While all my friends had Ataris and Intellivisions, he brought home this piece of crap. Almost impossible to find games for this thing.

Nintendo Entertainment System
Tron Deadly Discs FTW!
My parents still had a working intellevision until this past summer. Then they sent it to goodwill and got a Wii because the grandkids wouldn't play with something "so old". Punks kids these days....
My first console was a NES, but I used to play Frogger and some other games on my dad's Apple.
I went NES, Sega Genesis, PlayStation, Xbox, Xbox 360.
I wanted a N64 but all my friends had one anyway. Golden Eye was maybe the greatest FPS of all time.
This (and an Intellivision)

I forgot what they called this tennis game in the late 70's early 80's. After that came Atari and that was a huge breakthrough.
Ditto. I loved 'em both, but the Atari was king. We only had about 4 games though: Combat, Asteroids (my all-time favorite), Vanguard, and their version of PAC Man, which was a fail. I borrowed Pitfall from some other kid and never returned it. That game was cool back in the day. Must have been 1980 or 81 when we got the Atari.
Damn thing was always broken. The football game sticks out to me as you could program WRs routes pre-snap.
That seems so bizarrely advanced when the players were defined by 5-7 pixels.

I used to go into this bar that my friends dad owned and play the real PAC man. Got up to three "keys".
Intellivision 2. Loved that thing.
Also came with one these bad boys.
Pitfall was my favorite game.
