For me in no particular order:|
Wii - Bought it off a mate at work after the Mrs (at the time) had one. Bought a load of games and controllers etc. Played it a couple of times and sold it (but not the games, still got them here gathering dust).
GameBoy Color - Seemed like a fantastic idea at the time. Bought a few games, played them once or twice and it got cast aside never to be seen again.
DreamCast - Thought this looked awesome and mate convinced me to get one. Did so and Sega and everyone else dropped support for it. Bought all the decent sounding games I could get and lent it to the Mrs (at the time). Hardly played it and she still has it to this day (I think).
Commodore 64 - First machine I bought with my own money after I started work. Brought up with a Spectrum, was dazzled by my mates all colour C64 so thought I HAD to have one. Had disk drive but could hardly get hold of any games and those which I did get always turned out faulty. Total waste of money and was soon replaced with Amiga 500 (excellent choice).
3DO - Massively impressed with the graphics and thought this was the future of gaming so blew £400 on one when it was released. Did enjoy what little there was on offer....but Jesus wept...£400 back then!!!!!
