Video game Collecters discussion. ^_^

Recommended Posts

So its been a while since I was on Kametsu, my sig is a clue of how long since is was made to blend in with an older format of the sight.  Great to be back.  Since then I have begun to collect video games.  As a collector I have multiple systems and games that are no longer on the mainstreme market and those that are.   I figured I would create a thread for those that are and those that are curious about collecting Video games and there respective systems.  Whether its tips and tricks to aid in such endeavors or bragging rights to are collections.


NO! ROMS DON'T COUNT :choler:


 


Curently I have


Systems:


Dreamcast


Snes


Nes


N64


GameCube


Wii


Sega genisis


Sega cd


Sega Saturn


Retron3


Gameboy


Xbox


Xbox 360


Ps1


Ps2


Ps3


Psp


Atari 2600 


 


I could take all day and list what games I have for each but I won't for now.  If any thing else I hope this will get a disscusion going.  I have learned a lot about the video games indestry in the span I started my collection.  Understanding why one system died or fun facts and tips for collecting.  So far its been fun, i'm not an abscure collecter wanting the most rare or unique of items.  Instead I collect the games I want to play, and so far I have played every game in my collection at least once.  Some more then others of course.  :D


 


I'm also curius about your gaming dens.  From what I've seen a good collector or gamer always has a great gameing den were he or she plays and stores all those fun games.  Like the one from AVGN or CGR (Classic Game Room)  I don't have a real one yet, all my games and systems are crammed neatly in my room but one day, a few Ninteno pillows, a super media center, Nes controller table and a few more fun items and I can have the game room of my dreams.

I'm going to make two lists, because I've lost alot of what I once owned. So it'll be (had) and (currently have).

I've had.

Dreamcast
NES
SNES
N64
Game Cube
Gameboy (Gameboy Colour too)
Sega Saturn
PS1
PS2
PS3
PSP
XBOX
XBOX 360

Out of those, I only have PS1-PS3 (+PSP), XBOX + XBOX 360, N64 and my gameboys. 

PS3 and XBOX 360 are my main platforms of gaming now, ocasionally I'll bust out the gameboy/psp for a handheld game. My PS3 can't play some of my PS1 games, so i'll occasionally bust that out too. (I also use a PC to game, but I have a feeling that's not exactly what you meant).

Its happend to me to.  I would loan something out either to never get it back or recieve it damaged.   Eventually I tired of it and made some personal rules to prevent such things from happening.   Currently I'm adding to my sega saturn games.   I only have five but I still have plenty on my list. 


 


I didn't include pc because it tends to fall into a catagory all its own.  I have seen peaple collect old systems like an old comadore or games you just can't get now a days.  Other wise pc or mac and so on have no collecters vallue.  When the get to old people tend not to want them around any more.  Unlike a nes or an old system some has grown up with.


 


In terms of collecters I have seen some pretty intence stuff.  On you tube while searching around there was an individual who made a vid of his N64 collection.  He owned every version ever made plus the controllers to go with them.  Thats a specialist collecter for you.

I've had:


  • Gameboy Color
  • Gameboy Advance
  • Gambeboy Advance SP
  • Nintendo DS
  • Nintendo DS Lite
  • Playstation 2
  • Playstation 3
  • Gamecube
  • Wii
  • (And my brother has an Xbox 360)

I wouldn't say I'm so much of a collector, as I am just nostalgic, haha. Like, I've been upgrading as I've been going along, but only enough that I can still go back and play my favorite games. For example, I still keep my Gameboy Advance SP around so I can play Gameboy Color games, and I made sure my PS3 was backward compatible, so I can still play PS1 & 2 games.

You can view my current video game collection here: http://www.gamefaqs.com/users/Toddler_Naruto/games/owned


 


I'm only focusing on maxing out my PS3 games right now, but eventually I'll also start buying PS1, PS2, and PSP games.


 


After that, I've been thinking of saving up for a 3DS or Wii U, I haven't decided yet.


 


(I have no plans of buying a PS4 or PSVita until their prices drop down to $300 New and $150 New)
