Was cleaning out a closet and came across these today


Backin louisiana at my old house, probably spent an hour just reminiscing while looking at them. lol its like seeing old friends. (Didn't include all the controllers or wiring for quick picture purposes)

Kinda wish these things had an "odometer" that measured hours put into each console, it would be a close race between the NES, SNES and PS1.

Out of these what did you play the most?

ETA

PS1 and PS2 felt like gaming had grown up a ton coming from mostly nintendo and a little sega

re: Was cleaning out a closet and came across these today
I was best friends with a guy who had older bothers who were big into japanese games in the early 90s. That's where I learned of Neo Geo (AES) and got good at fighting games (Fatal Fury, Samurai Shodown, KOF, etc.) Was so cool to have a home arcade that was legit quality. That blew me away.

I had the heads up on the Playstation 1 before the American release. I easily got one when they came out as there was no competition..kids didn't know what they were. Price of it was my biggest issue and hurdle lol.

For a long time I was the only one around with one in my area, I played that demo disc till it broke. Mortal kombat 3, Battle Arena Toshinden and twisted metal were in my dreams at one point.

Speaking of neo geo, the cd version always cracked me up with how they transcribe their titles into English. This is samurai shodown 2 and 3

I want a Neo Geo CD, but then again, the Sega Saturn ports are 98% the same.

N64 was my first gaming system (other than gameboy)

I remember playing Mario 64 and Wave Racer on Christmas morning. It was great.

loading time is heinous

I prefer the Neo Geo AES, the cartridges cut out and kill any loading time. Can get pricey..but last forever.

Just found all my old systems, too. I definitely played NES and SNES the most. Lots of Tecmo Super Bowl (like most guys my age group probably)

I went from NES to 64. Got my son Super Mario Allstate for the switch, we have been fricking up Mario 64. It’s my favorite game of all time. I’ve probably gotten 120 stars 30 times. I just never get tired of it.
And to see him explore the levels has made me very happy.

Hold on to the controllers - if you ever want to go back and emulate the classics they make adapters to use your genuine controllers.

I use my childhood controllers to this day.

SNES - first console I owned with 16-bit sound.

I remember playing some of the games and just being blown away by the music. Final Fantasy 2 got a lot of play time in my house.

Yeah, the Japan only CDZ loads faster, but is expensive. Nothing beats an AES though.

I have Real Bout Fatal Fury Special, KOF 96 and World Heroes Perfect on the Sega Saturn. For a long time, it was probably the best way to play Neo Geo games without actually owning a form of a Neo Geo.

TBH, I think the best way to play Neo Geo these days is via emulation released on consoles. That said, the Neo Geo roms pushed out by Hampster Corporation only allow you to play the arcade version of each game, so you do loose out on extra modes. It's my understanding that the only difference in AES/MVS is simply a setting that can be changed.

I know its impossible with Capcom, but I wish that Street Fighter II: Champion Edition would have been released on the Neo in the 1990s for the AES.

I loved that game and would have loved to play it with the AES stick controller. I want to eventually get a legit stand up arcade of it and MK1 & 2 for nostalgic purposes.

Not any time soon though, will need more space for those lol

Yeah, a NeoGeo AES is definitely a low-key MOAB in that collection.

I bought a MiSTer FPGA system mainly because I couldn't afford a Neo Geo...the core for that system is supposedly pretty much perfect at this point, and you can get SNAC ports for the original controllers.
