A question for younger gamers and video game consoles.

I'm sitting here setting up a couple of emulators just so I can play a few older games I played when I was a kid and beyond. Having been born in the 80s I grew up watching game systems improve and expand to the point that even if I don't play as many new games now I see how good they look and hear (from my friend's kids mainly) how fun a lot of them are. When I played and enjoyed Nintendo it was because there wasn't anything better till the next generation consoles. However, that got me thinking about younger gamers who grew up past a lot of these old systems I played on and I was wondering what game system that came out before you were born, or too young that it originally passed you by, do you think is still pretty fun to play even though it may be older? And of the older ones that you did try what made you want to give it a go? submitted by /u/MrPNGuin [link] [comments]
