Well, I still play with my Atari 2600, 800XL, ST, Falcon and Jaguar, mostly for nostalgia, but sometimes I prefer the simpler games of that era to today's overly complex xbox / ps3 disasters! Sme of my favourite games are on Atari 8- and 16-bit systems, and I play them not just for nostalgia, but because they're bloody good games and there's nothing like them on modern systems.

I still use my Atari ST and Falcon for serious work too, my 25 year old ST hooks up to modern synthesizers and is a great machine for recording tracks on via MIDI. On the road, I sometimes use an ST emulator and a copy of Cubase on a netbook because I prefer it to modern versions of Cubase!
