I only list the working, > 5 years old ones, mine are:

Nintendo Family Computer (or NES in the US), nearly 16 years old now, had it since 1996.

SNES, 11 years old, weird noise sometimes.

PS2, 8 years old, sent to maintainance twice, but last time I check, still work.

PS3, 5 years old.

What about yours?

I still have Gameboy Colour that still works (I think) I'm not sure what happened to my Super Famicom, I gave it to my cousins and it disappeared from their home.

My SNES.

Also, is it possible to edit titles? That grammar kind of hurts.

I've had my N64 since Christmas of '97, and I still play it every once in a while. (I wish I still had Goldeneye and Starfox though :()

Have 'em both. Star Fox 64 holds up amazingly well.

Goldeneye.... eh... not so much.

Is your PC the same as the first time you bought it? If you've changed part of its, then it's not the same system.

I suppose my Atari 2600 and Intellivision are my oldest systems. :) I don't want to count my PC, since it wasn't mine when I was kid and it was awful, iven to me later. The 386 - 486 era stuff is mine onward.

They still work too! I still have my NES, SMS, SNES, Genesis and stuff too. :P

I still have a working old school fat PS2, from like 2002 or so. And an N64.

Also, I don't own a gamecube, and I'm not sure if my friend's is still working, but, regarding the durability of those things... It's worth noting that he once picked it up by the handle, smacked someone in the face with it, and put it back down, while it was running. Game didn't skip. Didn't freeze. Nothing. Pretty sure it was during a drunken, heated SSBB match.

It's more for nostalgic/collector reasons if anything.

I remember my last time playing the Atari 2600 was about 13 years ago or so. My uncle brought it from Japan since 1980s, great system. He bought a NeoGeo as well, last him for nearly 10 years i think.

It's hard to play now, but certainly a cIassic machine for it's time. ACTIVISION was born in that era! :shock: :P

I had a commodore 64 since I was a kid all the way up to this year, but I never played the thing in 15 years, it was just in the basement. The longest console that ever got use is probably my 360, 7 years and still loving it.

My old family 2600 is still alive and kicking (though the controllers have needed occasional repairs to the contacts) complete with 78 games.

My PSX. had it for 13 years and still works
#31 Posted by glez13 (8672 posts) -

My SNES lasted like 11 years until it died. At first it had a black and white display problem then one day it losed the white and stayed black.

My PS lasted like 9 years until the CD drive died. Sometimes it kinda spins but in the end it's useless.

My first PC had a HDD malfunction like at year 3. Damn you Maxtor!!!111

So SNES wins. :cool:..............:cry:

#32 Posted by Jonwh18 (9350 posts) -

GBC or SNES.

#33 Posted by YearoftheSnake5 (7200 posts) -

My NES. I don't know its exact age, as we got it at at garage sale when I was 3 years old. So, I'm guessing it's anywhere from 20 - 24 years old. I had to replace the cart reader inside of it once, but it works like new.

#34 Posted by Lucky_Krystal (1730 posts) -

Ps2 - 8 years

Nintendo DS - 7 years

#36 Posted by Slashkice (13053 posts) -

No idea. My SNES still worked the last time I tried, but that was a long time ago (have little reason to use it due to rereleases and all). I'll just assume it still works and answer 'SNES'.

N64 still play conker's bad fur day from time to time. Them teddy bastards.

Not hating or anything, just sometimes little things really get you, you know?

My N64. Over 10 years old now. If only the controllers analog stick would stay the same (I gotta buy a couple of those GameCube-like replacement sticks).
