Not right now. I really only used it for Blurays. My current TV doesnt have enough HDMI ports, as I have a Switch and Fire Stick.

So you only own 1 game ever since you bought the system?

Yeah. I got the system as it was the best Bluray player at the time. In 2004 I got heavily in to PC gaming, later that year I discovered Steam. Even since Ive been a PC gamer, but the Nintendo Switch spoke to me and so I ended up buying it. Which it has been one of the best consoles I have owned thus far.

Hm I can see that. For me, I still enjoy the hell out of the ps3 because it had so many good games.

I keep a list of all my systems, so this will also include current gen stuff cause I'm just pasting it in:

 

Consoles:

NES (Front Loader, my original my parents bought new right before I was born, replaced connector so games actually work)
NES (Front Loader, slightly newer one in better shape, unmodified, games work better on this one)
SNES (Original Version)
Nintendo 64 (Black with Expansion Pak)
Nintendo GameCube (Later Model, Black)
Nintendo Wii (White, actually only gets used to rip GC and Wii images)
Nintendo Wii U Deluxe
Nintendo Switch (Splatoon 2 Green/Pink Edition)
NES Classic
SNES Classic
SNK Neo Geo Mini
Microsoft XBOX 360 S (250GB, Black)
Sony PlayStation (Original, Gray)
Sony PlayStation 2 (Slim, Black, Main)
Sony PlayStation 2 (Slim, Black, Extra)
Sony PlayStation 3 (Late 160GB Slim, Black, Upgraded to 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD, Main for PS3 games)
Sony PlayStation 3 (Early 160GB Slim, Black, Upgraded to 128GB Intel 545 SSD, Secondary for PS1 and PS2 Classics)
Sony PlayStation 4 (500GB, Glacier White Destiny: The Taken King Limited Edition, Upgraded to 500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD)
Sony PlayStation 4 Pro (1TB, Jet Black, Upgraded to 1TB Crucial MX500 SSD)
Sony PlayStation TV
Sony PlayStation Classic

 

Handhelds:

Nintendo GameBoy (Original, Gray, Failing screen but still playable)

Nintendo GameBoy Advance SP (Silver, broken screen)
Nintendo New 3DS XL (Super NES Edition)
Nintendo New 3DS XL (Black, Damaged Top Screen but still playable)
Sega Game Gear (Non-playable)
Sony PSP-3000 (Black)
Sony PlayStation Vita 2000 (Black)

 

I have both an LCD TV that most the systems with HDMI are hooked up to and a CRT TV that all the pre-HDMI systems and the secondary PS3 are hooked up to (the Taken King PS4 is used for streaming video on a third TV). Of the consoles, only my older NES, Wii, original PlayStation, PlayStation Classic, extra PS2, and Neo Geo Mini are not hooked up (though the Neo Geo mini has a screen and can run stand alone). I have spent a lot of money on switches and cables.

 

I also have the Genesis Mini, TurboGrafx16 Mini, and a limited edition Crystal White Samurai Shodown Neo Geo Mini pre-ordered. I grew up in the 16 to 32/64-bit console eras so I like this stuff a lot.

I have, all PAL region except the region free Gameboys and DSs;

NES

SNES

N64, black

Gamecube, platinum with matching platinum Gameboy Player

Wii U, black

Gameboy Pocket, clear

Gameboy Color, grape

Gameboy Advance, platinum (to match my 'cube)

Gameboy Adavnce SP, tribal

DS Lite x3 (2 bought spares or repair, turned up working)

New 3DS XL, dark blue

 

I must replace my Wii at some point, mostly for Gamecube controller compatibility. I'd also like a North American NES, Super Famicom, NTSC N64 (JP or US), and a spice orange JP Gamecube.

 

And obviously I need a Switch too, but I'm saving up for a house so that has constrained my spending significantly.

I have a Nintendo 64, a later slim PS2 and an Xbox 360 I still have. Unfortunately, I think the laser in the PS2 is failing.

I recently built a cupboard specifically so I could hook up my old consoles because they were gathering dust. In it, I have:

 

- NES

- SNES

- Megadrive

- N64

- PS2

- Wii

 

Aside from that, I also have two classic Gameboys and an Atari Lynx in storage. One of the Gameboys will be made into a piece of wall art.

 

And Lastly, I have a GBA and DS in my work bag for long nights without much interesting stuff going on.

exactly the same, except instead of putting in a game disc, you load up an app and mount an iso which is then seen as a disc by the ps3.

My current console list: 

Master System (pal 60hz mod)
Master System 2 (currently doing RGB mod)
MegaDrive "HD" PAL (region switch and currently doing RGB amp mod)
MegaDrive "HD" Japanese CIB

Famicom 
NES NTSC
Super Famicom + Super GameBoy
SNES PAL (broken)
Wii (black)

GBA
DS lite
3DS LL 

PS2 slim
PS3 slim
PS Vita fat

Xbox 
Xbox Crystal
x360 Elite
X One

I think that's all

For hooking them all up I use HDMI wherever possible (plus wii and PS2 hdmi adapters, they ain't great but these consoles output garbage signal quality anyway), component for xbox and RGB for all the other consoles. I've also plugged PS3 to my CRT as it can be connected to both RGB and HDMI at the same time (though can only output to 1). The LG TV in the photo is just amazing with RGB. 
I've remade all analog cables myself, using connectors sourced from cheap aliexpress cables and some best quality, oldstock SCART cables I could find, that way each cable costs like 1.5-2€ and is the best possible quality it can be.
Edit: I've also put an old enterprise-grade gigabit switch to connect all the network enabled system to the LAN and internet.
