Pretty boring, but:

TRS-80 -> Apple II -> Apple IIc -> Apple IIe -> PC

There was some stops at consoles along the way (PS, PS2, Xbox, Xbox 360) but I never played more than one game on there - GTA4 on X360 was the only game I ever even bothered to finish

Were they a big deal in Aus in the 80s? For some reason I associate them with America (Tandy store stuff?).

Zaxon blew my mind.

I wanted a Vectrex so bad too, those smooth lines were hypnotising.

N64 is still the tits for me. It just opened up gaming in a way nothing else had at the time, led specifically by Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time.

Currently jump around between Series X and PS5 and my 3070-powered rig which I'm upgrading to a 3090 soon.

There's also some other stuff in there -- I had an Atari Lynx for a while and a Game Gear, but they chewed through batteries and I couldn't keep feeding them.

Never actually played a console in earnest, to me they are novelty factor home arcade machines. Any title worth playing is on PC and is experienced the best on PC.

I do have a retropie however, just for the amusement.
