Is it just me or does anyone else look at some of these and say "I would rather have the cash"?

To each his own, but, any guesses on the amount of cash pulled from Squarehards collection? And yes I realize not everyone needs the cash and they are free to spend it how they please.

*raises hand* I'm not a fan of collecting games I don't play anymore since they just sit there losing value, for the most part, but I can see why some people do buy them and hold onto them. I'm not one to judge.

You can lose value just as easily in the stock market. Let's put it this way, my peers mostly started investing in 2005-2007.

P.S. I'm not saying invest in video games, obviously, but I'd hardly say video games are the worst place to put your money.

Personally I don't buy games as an investment, It's a hobby for me and that is all. As someone had mentioned there is the stock market to invest in or 401k for the future. I don't like trading in games because I feel the TIV are such a rip off, sure you can flip certain games for a few bucks but to me that is not worth the time or the hassle.

EDIT: Nice pictures Squarehard, you recommend any good DS import games that I can play with out having the need to read?

lol @ losing value.

maybe if youre retarded and pay $60 for every game you buy.

i mean that in the nicest way possible.

id say 75% of the games i own have increased in value since i bought them(or are worth more now than than what I payed for them then).

the only ones i can say otherwise on are current gen titles. call of duty's and LEs are usually my retard buys(basically, games i buy to play, not look at).

Well, the generic ones that most people get that don't need translations are Ouendan games, Jump games, Daigasso, Egg Monster Hero, there's some Gundam games that don't require much reading, and last one I'd suggest is probably Nodame Cantabile.

You may notice most of these are rhythm type games, but those are pretty much going to be the most universal without needing to read.

I think for the most part, lots of Import games are actually fairly easy to pick up due to the way DS games are made, which always has extensive tutorials where you practice and repeat, so you pick it up eventually.

why do you Fuck it up with those ugly ass(although you only have like 5 or 6 from what i can see) players choice/great hits boxes?


I leave them there as a reminder I need to replace them.

I hate those ugly things, and thankfully I have very few of them, but if I set them aside, I will just forget I still own them, which would work too, but I rather try to replace them until all those ugly bastards are gone. :D

This space reserved in memory of one of the greatest heroes we will ever know. He faced insurmountable odds and sacrificed all for what he believed in. He died so that we could delay the inevitable. His name shall be honored forever, and his legend inscribed into the annals of history forever. And his name was...

In my honest opinion, to me collecting video games is one of the cheapest "real hobbies" a man can do, damn I know people that spend thousands of dollars into their cars, and I'm not talking rich people, these are guys that have a 40 hour a week job just like any average guy. Heck you can build a nice video game collection with 2 or 3 grands. That's the way I think.

thats because most of the good big holders are expensive and we are cheap, which is why we have so much media. its a catch 22.
my trade list doesnt have anything in it right now, but it will someday. soon. hopefully. maybe.

I have actually always contemplated on getting those from Best Buy, but with nothing in them, they looked so ugly, so I wasn't sure if it would translate once it's all filled up, but they actually look a lot better than I thought they would.

How balanced is the tower with everything in it?

I can't even take a picture of my set up with the cheapy Kmart camera I've got. Games and media aren't even the real issue; okay I've got two bookshelves in the corner of an eight by eleven room. Between those two bookshelves I've got a wooden pole slung across to serve as a clothes rack (this is all because my closet is a half-closet and is pretty much nonfunctional for clothes.)

Okay. Since I needed to free up more floor space (in a feverish claustrophobic fit of madness) I decided to raise the clothes rack by putting two milkcrates on top of the bookshelves, removed the tupperware container off a storage crate, and this gave me enough space to slide my computer desk under the clothes rack, in-between the two bookshelves.

I then christened my configuration MEGIDDO STORAGIO

I fantasize about going into people's houses who have all this clutter and selling it all on eBay. :drool:

EDIT: Before people jump all over me - collect all you want. I find it fascinating but definitely not for me. It would make me mental having all of those games to the point that it would paralyze me from actually enjoying any of them because I'd always be wishing I was playing something else... some of you guys have some pretty sick collections though.

My house looks like a warehouse. My friends say I will be on "hoarders" soon. I really need to get rid of a lot of my stuff. I will be cleaning today, so I may get up some pics of my "Atari Keepers", but I am not making any promises.

If you guys watch the yard sale thread, I post what I find each week in the summer.
