Same here. I used to get into fights over which console was better. I bet you that still goes on today in schools, we just don't know because we aren't there anymore.

I definitely remember arguements over which was better, the Commodore 64 or the Amiga 500.

I didn't remember being that behind the times when I got the Mastersystem 2. Wasm't that around 89/90 or so?

I can confirm that it does still happen. My brother is always having arguements with his mates about 360 vs PS3. Problem for him is, though, that he's probably the only open minded kid at his age in his entire school as he loves his 360 and wants a PS3 (seeing the advantages and disadvantages of both), whereas all his mates constantly go on about how the 360 sucks :lol:

I remember having arguements about how the Dreamcast was better than the PS2 before I even had a Dreamcast and before the PS2 was out lol, but I was only 9 at the time.

I used to own a Mega Drive (Genesis) when I was way younger, everyone I knew had a PS1 when that came out (although I LOVED my uncle's N64, good old Diddy Kong Racing) and it was only really around the time when the Dreamie came out that I started having these arguements.

I used to love laughing at the game store clerk at the local Game Force who would go on and on about how the Dreamcast was twice as powerful as the PS2 or some such nonsense.

Ha ha, even at that age I knew it wasn't more powerful! I've just always been a SEGA fan (well, old school SEGA these days sadly Sad) and I used to be a huge Sonic fan boy, hence my irrational love of the Dreamcast.

We didn't meet untill 91 and for a couple of years we were messing with my spectrum, Amiga 500+ and your amstrad then I got the megadrive you got the mastersystem and somewhere along the line we both got the Amiga 1200........I think

I took part in many playground console arguments. All of them fuelled by my green eyed jealousy. I had a Megadrive but secretly always wanted a SNES. Then I had a Playstation (which I loved dearly) but envied those who had Goldeneye, Perfect Dark and Zelda.

Like many I own 'em all now 'cos I cant miss those exclusives.
Gears of War 2 and MGS4 being great examples of what you could miss owning one system.

SNES overall was probably my fav system of all time, just so many great games and they got support from all the developers. It may be the one system that had universal appeal. Then the greatness that was Playstation came along, just think if Nintendo had managed to keep Sony in their camp and the two developed consoles and games together. There wouldnt have been many challengers that could have touched what they could have done together...

I still remember the Atari 2600/Intellivision comparisons from way back when. Most of my friends had the 2600 but then they came over and saw the glory that was NFL Football for the Intellivsion and floods of jealously overtook them.
The fact that the Sun is maize and the sky is blue is neither in our control, nor is something we fraudulently contrived. It just shows that God has excellent taste in colors.
