Video game madness: the consoles...
I first got into video games when I was quite young and impressionable. Now I have no such excuse. A new system comes out and I'm queuing for it. Sad, I know.

Over the years I have bought:-
1 x Home Video System (pong, tennis, squash)
2 x Game Boy - original grey plastic
1 x Game Boy - clear plastic
1 x Game Boy Pocket - silver
1 x Color Game Boy
1 x Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)
1 x Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)
1 x Nintendo64 (N64)
1 x Lynx
1 x Sega Gamegear
1 x Sega Master System
1 x Sega Megadrive (aka Genesis) inc the 32-bit overdrive add-on
1 x Sega Saturn
1 x Sega Dreamcast
2 x Sony PlayStation (PSone)
3 x Sony PlayStation2 (PS2)
2 x Game Boy Advance (GBA)
1 x Nintendo GameCube (GC)

and as of lunchtime today...
1 x Microsoft Xbox

Update: I've just got back from HMV where I spent £507.42 buying the Xbox itself, three extra controllers, a memory pak and three games. I put it on the never, never too. Madness confirmed.
