You may have noticed that there’s generally a greater emphasis on games here at Red Parsley than on the systems that host them but I do occasionally take a proper look at one of the splendid computers or consoles in question. These features take two forms – Exploring, where I look at a system I have little or no experience with and 'explore' it, and Gaming Memories, where I look at systems I've previously owned (and usually still do) and recall my time with them. Here is a list of said features - the former are listed in (I think) the order of their release, the latter are listed in the order I acquired (or used) them:
