This post will discuss five of the best gaming consoles that players admired throughout their gaming experience.

  • Playstation

  • Xbox 360

  • Super Nintendo Entertainment System

    Hi Kharim,

    Did you ever play Atari? Not likely. 🙂

    That was my first console when I was a kid. Then got into Gameboy, Playstation, and finally Xbox.

    In the past 15 years or so, I’ve mostly tried to stay away from gaming in order to save time for my family and the Lord. Not always successful, but I’ve tried.

    However, I would love to start playing PUBG or something online and maybe even stream it

      No I have never played Atari before. I used to play Gameboy and Nintendo back in the days. I still play some PC games today like Rocket League and sometimes Fortnite.

      I think I tried PUBG one time.

      Yeah you should try streaming it. Would you stream on YouTube or Twitch?
