Had an original gameboy too, now that I think of it. I played plenty of SNES at other people's houses, but never got one for myself. I did go through a bit of an NES/SNES emulator binge in 2005 to make up for it.
By the time SNES was around, I was already firmly entrenched in the PC gaming world, playing games like Test Drive 3, Sim City & Civilization, and online gaming via The Sierra Network. Then Doom happened, and who cares about Super Nintendo or Sega Genesis when you're playing a first person shooter with three other people via an online BBS that emulated network play? Consoles couldn't catch up fast enough for me, and by the time they did, I didn't really have time for 'em anymore.
