Had a dreamcast but got rid a little while ago as I didn't really play it any more. Still have a gamecube but that's not quite as old!

Blasphemy getting rid of your Dreamcast :angry:  ^_^ . I played powerstone 2 the other day with my nephews, they love it.

 

I still have my NES, good old bash of Duck Hunt/Super Mario Bros brings back so many memories.

Have a japanese snes which stil works as well.

 

I have an original Gameboy that is completely yellow now due to age, but works really well. Speaking of, when I went to new york, I headed to the Nintendo World Store in Manhattan. They have a gameboy which was in an explosion in the Gulf War, its half charred but still works. lol  :D

 

I also have a PC Engine GT, which wasn't realised in the UK, but was one of the best colour handhelds released back in the day. see pic below:

Ah the old Spectrum.
Three hours to load s game by tape then it would crash on first level.
Jet Pack Willy and Manic Miner, classics.
I have a Megadrive emulator on my PC and about 60 roms for it.
