Have You Ever Gone Back and Bought a Retro Console?

Do you recall all the wasted hours on the games and consoles of the past? Everything from the first Playstation and the Nintendo 64 to the NES and the Dreamcast is fair "game" here.

Please forgive the lame pun.

Just purchased the original xmen game for Sega genesis. Works great, nostalgia at its finest.

I still buy retro consoles. In the last 12 years I have acquired a NES, Master System 2, Mega Drive, PS1, Dreamcast and a Sega Saturn.

I haven't mentioned the Gamecube, PSP, PS2, PS3 and DS because I wouldn't regard them as retro yet.

I’m a bit of a collector so yes I’ve bought old consoles and games. It’s a fun hobby.
