crackhead parents can’t afford something like that, that’s money that could be spent on more drugs.

I got a Dreamcast with Sonic Adventure for my 11th birthday, which was just two days after the Dreamcast launch.
I also got Final Fantasy VIII the same day, since it came out the same day as the Dreamcast launch even if it's a PS1 game.
They would also give me a LaserDisc of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace imported from Japan.
I still have them.

I always got most consoles at launch or near launch because I was very rich growing up.
I would later get a PS2 the following year and both the Xbox and GameCube the year after that.

Same here man. I grew up in a working-class neighbourhood, my dad was a factory worker and my mom was a cashier. Needless to say we had very little money. Occasionally my dad would get electronics and video games, but always used, and always when they were years old and obsolete (we got a 486DX in 1996, a Super Nintendo in 1998, and an OG Game Boy in 2000). I didn't really know any better, and I had way more gadgets than other people in my elementary school. Most kids had nothing. I actually got beaten up in third grade by a kid who thought that my computer-typed assignments made his look bad, and that's why he kept getting Cs and Ds.

Once I got into high school and started mixing with kids from the good side of town, I realized how poor we were. One of my friends lived in a big, new house near a lake. He owned an N64, Dreamcast, Gamecube, PS2, a Nintendo DS, a sick AMD Athlon64 gaming PC, and an older IBM laptop in his room (this was 2005, I was 15 and it was my first time seeing a laptop in real life). I remember playing GoldenEye for the first time and it absolutely blew my mind. Aside from the vidya, everything about that house seemed so amazing. His family seemed so happy and carefree, not stressed and unhappy like my parents always were. Everything was neat, clean, and impeccably put together, unlike the fucked up baseboards, dirty, rattling windows and stained, uneven floors in our rental townhouse. That was my first glimpse into middle-class suburban life. When I got home that night, I went straight to my room and cried into the pillow.

The next year he begged his mom to give him an Xbox 360, but she agreed to do it only if he got rid of at least one console. So he ended up giving the N64 to me. Rinse and repeat with the Nintendo Wii in 2007, when he also gave me his GameCube. I still have both consoles to this day. Whenever I play them, I think about everything I missed out on as a kid- from video games to vacations.

Interesting anon, for me I also grew up quite poor but had parents (or parent since my dad loved spending money) who did their best to sacrifice their own enjoyment for ours. So I had everything more or less, and so did my two brothers. We had all the consoles and were always up to date (although we didn't care for Sony surprisingly, so no PS2/PS3 until we were teens). So I always had something to distract me. Still, at least my parents didn't force me to give away my vidya for more vidya, she would just buy us whatever was new for birthdays and christmas.

I'm from London so I pretty much see a city that has around 5 different architecture styles clashing into one another constantly, along with tons of graffiti and rubbish everywhere, it's honestly such an ugly place and the weather never changes so it's always grey. I also live in an apartment block that was for 2 people but had 5 people living in it so I was always cramped. Whenever I would watch movies or tv shows set in suburban America, it was such an eyeopener. It was the EXACT kind of place I wish I lived in. It was sunny, spacious, seemed like there was tons to explore and places to go, everyone sort of knew each other or at least were on good terms, kids played outside for ages, you could hang out with your friends at your place or vise versa. I'm sure it's a "grass is greener" kinda deal but I imagine if you took my family and placed them there instead I probably would've had a completely better life.

I don't know, I guess I just never had any kind of experience due to my overprotective parents. So whenever I'd escape to movies and TV I'd always see kids having adventures in these houses and neighborhoods, hell even when I'd use the internet and browse 4chan when I was a teenager the greentext stories would always be from Americans talking about their middle class lifestyle, playing vidya, hanging out with friends, sleepovers, hanging out in the woods and shit. Just seemed so much better.

>I'm from London
Interesting, I also grew up in a city called London, but in Ontario. Just like the real London, there is a Thames River, an Oxford Street, and a shitty east end (where I lived). I now live in a place called Waterloo. You could say that we're fond of British place names.

Newer middle-class suburbs in London and Waterloo are exactly like the American equivalents. Green lawns, nice big lots, fairly large houses on the lots. I live in a post-war suburb in Waterloo, which are also a lot like the 1950s American equivalent (bungalows with carports, but no garages) though slightly less shabby since there isn't the same kind of white flight problem here. In both neighbourhoods, kids don't really play outside much because the parents are worried about all manner of things, whereas in my working-class neighbourhood, all kids COULD do was play outside. Most people did not have cable or video games, so you were kinda forced to. Generally we didn't have sleepovers, because my mom complained that we were paying to feed another mouth (in retrospect, my poorer friend would always try to take food from our house, which would piss me off nowadays). Overall I think the lack of internet and cable contributed to a more carefree environment and less paranoid parents. So your overprotective parents were basically just ahead of the curve.

No matter where you are, being poor sucks on a relative basis. I think it sucks less to be poor in Canada vs the US, but I do not look back fondly on my childhood.

It's pretty common for rich kids. The friend I mentioned in the previous post went away for university, and before he left his parents bought him a car and a brand new Macbook. He was 18. I stayed in my hometown for university, took the bus for an hour to school every day, worked part-time, and took notes on paper until I could afford a second-hand Thinkpad T42p (thanks, /g/). Being rich allows you to be a kid longer.
