'''''Video games''''' are [[games]] played on a video screen. I have been playing them since around 1985 when my family got a used [[Atari 2600]] with a bunch of games. Around 1988, my brother and I pooled our money to buy an [[NES]]. Around 1992, I got an [[SNES]] for Christmas. That was the last dedicated video game system I bought while they were still on the market, although I got a couple other used systems over time. Nearly all of my gaming is currently done on PCs, not just playing PC games, but through emulating consoles.

My personal video game favorites.

A video game is a game played on a video screen. I have been playing them since around 1985 when my family got a used Atari 2600 with a bunch of games. Around 1988, my brother and I pooled our money to buy an NES. Around 1992, I got an SNES for Christmas. That was the last dedicated video game system I bought while they were still on the market, although I got a couple other used systems over time. Nearly all of my gaming is currently done on PCs, not just playing PC games, but through emulating consoles.
