Late Night Consoling


Since I'm doing the console news items, what is my history with consoles? It is rather brief actually. The Dreamcast was my first console, and sadly it stopped working last year. I also owned a PS2 for several months but sold it after realizing there wasn't anything besides GTA3 that really interested me, which is actually pretty weird since I bought quite a few games for the Dreamcast. All kinds of different genres too. Still have a GBA and Neo-Geo Pocket Color though, I usually take those with me to kill time during flights to the U.S.
