This is too true. I feel like this site and more specifically this thread is like a cross between a dealer and support group. My thoughts range from:
"I don't need to collect as much anymore. Backlog, etc." to "Oh. I could use one of those in my collection too. Wonder what they're going for on eBay."


its true. i keep telling myself otherwise lol. i really should put more into savings and investments. its a goal this year. though i admit for many many reasons this year did not start out like i wanted too.

For sure man. I made $.30 on my savings account in 2012. A few more years, and I'll have enough to invest in a McChicken sandwich.

Seeing those old console boxes makes me wish I didn't toss all of mine out as a kid. I didn't really keep everything in perfect shape until I was in my teens.

There was a point where I almost got them all to show, but then I kept getting more CEs again, and after that I just gave up again since I'm out of room after all.

And as for the DS games I've actually had the same amount now for a couple years now, so there's still a ton of titles I haven't even gotten around to picking up, but with all the time I've been devoting to buying anime it's on hiatus still. :3

I tried, but after I started picking up a ton of CEs again I gave up. T___T

I made him an offer he couldn't refuse.

yes but we like to lie to ourselves and tell ourselves that we will in fact use this crap. how we still convince ourselves of this is truly remarkable given the backlogs of movies and games the people of this thread(and yes thats me too even though ive never posted a picture) has to be astronomical.


I sure as hell don't ;)

Less wiggy bashing, more pics!! But seriously, I figured I'd post my current setup. There's a lot of stuff missing that stored in my closet right now until my roommate moves out and I can take the room over. Let it be known that I dusted everything before I finished this post. I didn't realize how dusty it was until I saw the pics since my living room is generally pretty dark.

You will have to tilt your head for some of these. I didn't realize that rotating them in photobucket would not rotate the linked pics.

First some overall pictures:

Thanks! My wife actually preordered them all. She's also the one that wanted the big femshep poster that's on the wall. Mass Effect is her favorite game series of all time.

Very nice nice collection! I'm curious though, why do you leave empty spots and let some of the games sit at an angle (like your cart only NES & SNES games) on some of the shelves?

And I think you might wanna do some dusting...:lol:

So I don't have to reorganize everything when I get some new games. Also I dusted before I finished posting. The flash is very revealing when it comes to dust. The 5 games on the SNES shelf stacked up also aren't mine, so I keep them seperate that way.

I have actually made a bunch of these using perler beads. It can be a lot of fun and unless you screw up with the iron, it's pretty much foolproof. Simple characters with dark outlines like Mega Man do tend to work best. I'll take some pictures of the ones I've made if anybody wants to see.

The supplies are fairly inexpensive at a craft store like Michael's but the larger tubs tend to have a lot of useless colors. Instead you can buy specific colors at this site. which I think is a much better way to go.

LOL, no. Even better is that at night she tells me I need to play video games so she has something to watch.

And yeah, the perlers are super easy to do. I just added a Samus to my collection last night, and will probably do Simon Belmont, Mario, Link, and Bill Rizer in the next few days.

Actually sounds a bit like my wife. She enjoys watching the stories in some of these games. And just the other night, she basically ordered me to start playing Skyrim again because my Xbox is sad that I haven't played it in nearly two weeks.

My girlfriend does this too. She'll tell me to start playing a game so she can watch it (while playing on the computer and/or reading). If I decide to play something she doesn't want to watch (i.e. one of my NCAAF Dynasties or my second play through of Xenoblade -- "It's Reyn time!"), she pulls out the "what about all those other games I got you?" She strategically adds games to my backlog just to help dictate what I play :lol:.
