My favorite console is the NES.

As for my favorite old computer, it's a toss-up between the TRS-80 Color Computer and the Macintosh SE. I learned how to program BASIC on the CoCo, and I spent countless hours using HyperCard to make crappy games on the SE.

I'm the guy that checked Atari :P

Had an Atari800XL, learned BASIC on it. Tried to make games. Failed horribly.

I had a NES and SNES too and both were really awesome, but my roots are with Atari.

Video game consoles are typically powered by operating systems and CPUs that differ from desktop computers.Ataris Adventure is rightfully considered by many to be the first ever action-adventure game. Its the first ever to allow a player to have a stash of items, requiring the player to select which one to use at any given moment.

Having to choose one is a bit tough, but I'll have to go with the Amiga. It was a great computer. I had 2 of them over a span of about 10 years, with the second being heavily modified over time.

I almost picked the Commodore 64, as it was my first PC, but the Amiga was huge leaps ahead of it. However, I did really like, and often miss, the fact that I knew almost *everything* about that computer. Basic and Machine Language were easy to learn because the instruction sets were small, and I knew what every memory location did, and how I could use them. I was never quite that familiar with the Amiga, and since Windows Xp, I barely know what's going on at low level in my computer...

Anyway, I don't like lumping PCs with consoles, so my favorite console was SNES. :) It had some really great games for it's time. I still play some of them occasionally.
