but i never did get my own gaming computer until 2020 after years of wanting one!

lets talk about rtbh99

Plastic Battleship replica.

Adept I

Can't remember anything in particular.


Lol.  Drum set too. An electric one

Adept I

My own computer. Eventually had to buy it myself.

Adept II

I really can't recall. As a child, I probably asked for a specific Transformer. These days, I'd ask for a new house, lol. Knowing I'd not get it.

Adept I

A dirt bike

Adept I

New bicycle.

Adept III

N64 😞

Adept I

I never got that go-kart I wanted until I bought one for myself!

Adept I

Always got what I wanted 🙂

Adept III

Almost every few years I ask for a new gaming laptop, and I never get one. So, I resort to getting one myself eventually. I still want one because the one I have is getting older and If I'm hopeful, I'll be traveling a lot in my new job so a capable gaming laptop is important.

Oh, this takes me back to my childhood days and utter disappointment. I remembered asking my parents for a super soaker water gun, they were the rage that year and many children wanted it... money was extremely tight for my family at that time, and sadly I never got it! Being an adult now I can see how 'adulting' can be hard, more so when you've got a family and lots of bills to 'juggle'. 

Adept II

a Turbografx 16 console

Adept I

Pretty much everything, only ever got clothes and stuff like that...

Adept I

I never got a computer or console when I asked for them, had to pool together the money I'd get over a few years and get them myself




I get why, this was not a very good system. But i asked for a few years, never got it.

I don't recall. I don't remember asking my parents for anything particular, and my grandparents would give us a price, so I always got what I asked for.

Adept I

I honestly can't think of anything, my expectations were well managed. [rofl]

Adept I

Can't really remember. I have been buying my most wanted gifts myself for a long time now 🙂

Adept II

A Neo Geo console. I had asked for a few years, but Santa could never seem to find the instructions on how to build one ;). 

Adept II

electric guitar

I can't remember which one, but it was a lego stars wars kit.

Adept II

Remote control car. 

Adept I

Any computer.  Was told they were a waste of time. (Early 80's)   now all I hear from her is "why didn't you do something with computers, you were so gifted" lol 🙄

Adept III

Gift I always wanted as a kid was an electric guitar. 

Adept II

I'm too old to remember, but probably a cowboy outfit with a Mattel six shooter, when I generally got socks and a handknit sweater.  I do remember driving all over the GTA looking for a Furby for my kids though...

Adept I

The eternia play set back in the day of He-Man


Adept I

I never got the leather sofa I wanted at like 8 years old for some reason lol

Adept II

The super scope for the super Nintendo...

Adept I

Gaming pc / Console 

Adept I

My parents always asked us for a wish list, and they delivered everytime; this I've tried to pass on to my kids.

A videogame system!  I frequently asked for one but no one ever gifted me one (for Christmas or any other occasion).  I did buy my own videogame systems multiple times, but never received as a gift.

Adept I

that dam Red Ryder BB Gun so I could give it to my step dad so we didn't have to watch a Christmas story again.(I hate that movie)

Adept I

That transformer that changed into a whole city, Metroplex.

Adept III

I never got my own PC I had to build it with from spare parts I got from friends or bought my self.
