1. Dragon 32/64
Where it all started for me. Shame about the lack of high-res with colour mode, but good keyboard and sound.
2. ZX Spectrum
Spectrum plus to be precise. With the lack of games for the Dragon I felt like a little kid pressed up against the window of the huge Spectrum's sweetshop game emporium so I jumped ship.
3. Atari ST
From 8-bit Speccy to 16-bit ST, but this never quite captured the same charm as the Speccy.
Bought a pre-owned one purely for the killer app Super Monkey Ball. About the only thing I've played on it.
6. Nintendo DS
White one courtesy of the wife (sure beats socks!) Great for relaxing at home or on holiday doing puzzle-type games.
7. PlayStation 3
Years of stubbornly sticking only to PC for gaming finally came to an end in late 2008 because I was getting tired of constantly having to upgrade the PCs for the latest games. Very happy with this platform (even if I'm still clunky without a mouse for shooting action).
