Video game console
A video game console is an electronic device designed primarily to play video games. Video game consoles for consumer use have been sold since 1972.
My family's first video game console was a used Atari 2600 with a bunch of games which my parents got at a garage sale around 1985. In 1988, my brother and I pooled our money to buy a Nintendo Entertainment System. In 1992, I received a Super Nintendo Entertainment System as a Christmas present. That was the last system I bought while they were still being sold. Since then, I've acquired several other consoles used, but I almost never use them and prefer to game on my computer using emulators.
