First system that broke down on me.

Sonic the Hedgehog - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
First Game That I Ever Played



I did play games on my old Mac around 1995, but this was the first game that I've played on a console. I remember playing Sonic at a toy store in the mall in Baltimore, MD when I was like at least four years old. I already knew about Sonic thanks to Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog on TV.
