12/14 I was an early gamer and I’m not into it now. I think my mom still uses her Nintendo DS, unless it died.

I have never been much into TV gaming. But in the bowels of my basement still resides the Fairchild game system with about 7 or 8 game cartridges, still in working order (with an analog TV). It was gifted to me in the early '70s and was the first system to use a microprocessor.

11/14... where I lived a lot of people called the Atari 2600 games "tapes" apparently because they resembled 8-track cartridges. The only games I actually ever played much were Boogerman & Vectorman on the Sega Genesis our son had 20 some years ago... actually finished Boogerman, kinda gross but good fun!

10/14. My kids play Playstation and Wii but, overall, more familiar with the older systems. I had my few games I enjoyed but never was a hard core gamer.
