Fairchild Channel "F" (first video game system with cartridges)
Atari 2600 (for nostalgia purposes)
Atari 8 bit systems (400,800,XEGS, numerous ones)

Still play with the Fairchild and the Atari 400, at this point I just have enough time to plug in carts and play, one day I will get around to loading a bunch of Atari games from disk to the programmable cart I bought.

Zaxxon stand up cabinet
Vintage 1969 Chicago Coin Pirate Gold Pinball I am cleaning up and restoring.

All projects get some time, just takes a long time to finish any one of them.

Too many! The most vintage are...

A ColecoVision with Atari and driving modules
Atari XE (the one with the computer keyboard)
An NES, built into the bottom of a Sharp 19" TV
A TurboGrafx-16 I got complete in the box for $5
A Pioneer LaserActive, which is how I play my Sega Genesis games
A Philips CD-i
A GoldStar 3DO (also a Panasonic, but that one seems dead)
Sega Saturns (one black, one white)
And of course, a 2600...that's just about to be upgraded to a 7800 I just scored.

I have an Atari 2600, which I purchased at a thrift store years ago to replace my original Sears Tele-Games I received for Christmas in 1979 (I believe.) The Sears went up in smoke before I knew anything about electronics and I pitched it.

I also have an Atari Super Pong - haven't hooked it up in years.

My wife, otoh, has a Playstation.

*heh* Let's see... I have:

Sears Telegames "Pinball Breakaway"
Bentley Compuvision ("Pong" clone)
Commodore 64 (but that was also my favourite computer)
Commodore (Amiga) CD32
Sega Dreamcast
Sony Playstation 2 (hacked!)

... and they all still work. I've never been much of a gamer, though.

Now that you're mentioning Commodores, I guess I can mention the late-model 64 I got along with a Coleco Telstar (the pong one, not the 3-headed arcade one) in a trade. Yet to find software for it...maybe someday.

Somewhere...I've got a Dreamcast. I mostly picked one up for the NES emulation.

These days, I own a Wii...which I mostly use for NES/SNES/Genesis/Atari 2600 emulation thanks to Homebrew Channel. I did pick up a couple of Virtual Console games (including the one I got for purchasing Internet Channel last year), however, the quality between the emulated version and...the VC emulated version is nothing. Emulated output of interlaced video matches the quality of the original systems...and the progressive upsampling is pretty good. the Classic Controller is just...awesome.

My lack of eye/hand coordination kept me out of sports, and kept me out of video gaming as well. We had a 2600 & original Nintendo, though it was my sisters who used them. I played some simple stuff on the Atari but only used the Nintendo as video to test old TV sets.

Right now the only thing I have is a Radio Shack pong. The other day I found a couple cartridges at the TV shop; one is for an Atari but the other is one I hadn't heard of before, an RCA Studio II I think it's called? Just have the game, not machine.

I still have these, all modified for direct audio/video outputs:
Atari 2600
Atari 5200
Atari 7800
Mattel Intellivision (with Intellivoice)
Colecovision (with 2600 adapter and steering and roller controllers)

Also a Nintendo that needs its cartridge slot connector replaced (I have the part), and an old 10-in-1 brand-X game unit (color, multiple Pong-type games with dual analog joysticks) that predates the Atari 2600.

And cartridges... Lots of them. I used to drive over to the Atari main office in the late 80's and buy 7800 cartridges in their company store for $10 each when they came out.

Some very cool vintage gaming machines indeed.

My first gaming machine was a knock off of the Pong machine. Couldn't even tell you who made it. Wish I still had it tho. Also had a TI-994a computer with the cassette drive. LOVED Parsec...miss that one too!

Still have the Atari 2600, the original I got for Christmas in 1980.
Atari 5200 that I got for Christmas is 1983
Atari 7800
Sony Playstation
Sony PS2
Nintendo Wii

Also had an Atari 800xl with the floppy drive, touch tablet and Okidata Colormate 10 printer. OOHH, I thought that was just the bomb back in '85. LOL

Sure played em for hours and hours.
