You always remember your first.

For the true video game enthusiasts out there, these 12 consoles are sure to conjure up some of your most repressed childhood memories.

1. Hello, 2006

Microsoft didn’t get it quite right with this one. In spite of that, there’s a soft spot in all of us for our fallen Zunes.

9. This one was my life

Okay, the Hoenn Pokémon games are super special to me. Ruby/Sapphire was my first video game ever. It’s hard to let go of that.

Try not to think about those germs too much…

12. Another one

Like DJ Khaled said – this game must be another one I love. I just can’t get enough of this game. Plus, the way the start screen looks on this Game Boy model is pretty sweet.

Scrolling through all those consoles makes me want to go find my old Game Boy Advanced and play a game of Pokémon Emerald.

On the other hand, I could dig up my Nintendo DS and boot up Pokémon Mystery Dungeon… or maybe Nintendogs.
