NES. However it's not my actual NES that i got back in 89'. Silly me for trading it in and putting it towards a Genesis.
The oldest system that I've kept throughout the years since launch is my SNES and it's in tip top tetris shape.

Got an Atari 2600, but a few weeks back my answer would have been the NES. I'm amazed at how cheap almost every Atari game is, especially compared to other retro prices.

Atari 2600 games have been cheap for a very long time.

My young brother and I bought Atari 2600 games in the late 1980's and early 1990's at flea markets. I saw games at the time going for even as low 50 cents to $1.00 a cartridge. Games ain't that cheap now for the system.

Atari has been cheap in the terms of the used game market for a very long time for a number of reasons.

The first reason is people were not interest in Atari 2600 games at the time the Nes ruled and Atari itself wasn't looked at in a good way because of the crash. That did change for a time on the internet before the market changed again in recent years. The Atari brand in the late 1980's and early 1990's was not looked as something cool by my generation in terms of owning.

The 2nd reason Atari 2600 are less advanced than Nes games are. While the 2600 had had games that were advance later in its life, they were not to the leave of a SMS or a Nes.



Intellivision II. Even if I still have the Atari 2600 Jr., it wouldn't have been as old the Intellivison II. I got it when I was very young. I wanted it as Christmas gift and I can't remember why outside of seeing in in a Christmas Catalog.

I got an Atari 2600 Jr in 1988 before my parents gave it to a friend of my young brothers at the time in the early 1990's. Atari 2600 Jr. came out on the market around 1985 after the original version came out in 1977.

@piki: Yes, you're right. PS4 is too old but PaintShop Pro 7 is a useful piece of software

@Ryno: Do you really still own one of those? In working condition?

I used to have one of these pong consoles as a kid, mostly played it with my sister. But that was long ago. The oldest that I still have is a Gameboy Classic from 1989.

@Omega: Yup, still works. Well, last time I hooked it up a couple years ago it did. Pong is truly the ultimate 1 on 1 video game!
