Well I guess I will post a small update to my collection. I have gotten rid of the PS3 since the last post and picked up a WiiU in trade. Still have my Genesis and NES just sitting out in random places. Don't have and haven't found a good shelve to put next to my TV for my retro consoles so I have to pull them out as I want to play. I have picked up some Wii games since I got the WiiU and my NES and Genesis collections have both grow quite a bit. One thing I've learned is that I really need to dig around and find my digital camera. My cell phone camera takes such crummy shots.]


Nice:applause:But that one Gamecube game without the artwork is an eyesore lol what is it? Have you checked thecoverproject.net?

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

It's Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy i think. Just haven't gotten around to printing a cover off for it.

I need to post some pictures in here someday. My collections nothing too big, but it gets the job done. I counted yesterday and I'm at 360 titles roughly, I believe. Nothing like these 1000+ collections.

I'm only at about 150 not counting digital. Pretty small, but it's my own fault for trading so many in. On an unrelated note, what's your guy's opinions on consoles like the RetroN3 and other hybrid consoles? I'd like to get into collecting NES/SNES/Genesis games, and this seems a lot cheaper than buying all three consoles. And there is a HDMI/Gameboy Advance model coming out soon:bouncy:Just wondered if anyone had experience with them

The Retron 4 sounds pretty nice due to HDMI capabilities but being able to play NES/SNES/GBA (and I'm assuming GB/GBC) from one console would be nice. It's more of a convenience. If you want the genuine experience, you should buy the originals.

Yeah, but considering NESs and SNESs go for $40-$60, it's a rather big investment. Personally I'd rather spend that on games. Any suggestions on cheap games to start me off?

[/list]Haha. I didn't really realize initially either when I first got the set because I used to have the DVD side sticking out, and then I turned them around and was like, "Oh neat" lol.

You're sweet for saying that. I don't feel like such a dolt now.

I'm definitely interested in seeing some pics of your DS collection now, Gwen.


Have you posted up your collection in its entirety as of late? I think that would be of interest to me as well. ^__^

I don't know if I ever posted pictures of my collection of anything, now that I think of it. I'm fairly sure that there aren't any pictures of my crap on my photobucket account. Part of the problem is a) the racks i have my games on were SUPER cheapies from ikea years ago and they are VERY unattractive. b) my brother and I are slobs and half of our stuff is always in a state of chaos as we're always 'working on' this room or that room. The idea is to move our games into the entertainment room, but gad the entertainment room... is a disaster.

(I love my bro, but he's lousy at keeping the house neat and clean.)

All that said, I will make a sincere effort to at least collect my ds games together for a snapshot.

Disagree with what? The fact that there are a lot of great DS games, or that I can't imagine something?

All jokes aside, I know it's subjective based on how many games you play and what you like, but still... I can't image saying to myself that there are 200 DS games that I absolutely must have. But I'm with Square, I wanna see your collection.

Ha! The irony is that I started collecting DS games because I liked the size of the cases and because I always have at least one of my DS's with me in my purse. And now, with all the DS games I own, I've kind of lost interest in most of them. Been waiting for years for the new Animal Crossing and Luigi's Mansion. But when I get home from work, when I go to play something, i want action. I want... to shoot bad guys in the face. On a big screen. So sadly, a TINY percentage of my DS games are played. While, if I spend money on a console game - it WILL be played.

I would go to Racketboy.com and check around there. You can find tons of lists (most valuable games, cheap gems, etc.) for many consoles up to the PS2/GC/XB era. Some of his articles are outdated but for the most part, it's an awesome site.

Do or do not. There is no "need to."


The force is strong with this one.

For some reason, I have much less desire to keep current gen games as opposed to older gens. For example, I'll trade in games I finish and can't see myself ever playing again, ie. AC1 & 2, but I keep games I think I'll crack open again in 5 years, ie. Red Dead, Mass Effects, etc.

However if I were to find a CIB Madden 95 for N64 or Genesis, I'd probably get the thing hermetically sealed.

Very nice collection. Glad I'm not the only one still holding onto old gaming magazines. Good luck with the move. You definitely have a lot of packing to do. Hopefully your new place will have a stripper pole that's less ghetto.

Thanks, I'm going to miss that greasy ghetto pole but I'm excited at the thought of moving out of the basement. The new setup will be in a nice cozy bedroom and my first priority is to find a propper TV stand followed by a couch.

Old gaming mags are the best! The plan is to get them all shelved one day.

I love all the collections on here. Even the ones full of shovelware and covered in gamestop stickers! (I finally goo-gone'd the GS stickers off those two DS games I had. Yay!)

Me too... I'm buying fewer current gen games these days and have passed on a lot of high profile releases. My Wii/360/PS3 collection is so much smaller than my PS2/GC/XB collection... I have almost as many PS2 games as I do Wii, PS3, and 360 combined.:lol:

Nice collection, as always. And yeah, that stuff is gonna be a PITA to move.. which is something I'll be going through as well.:-s

I have tons of old mags back to SNES/Genesis. I've kept them because I want to cover something in a collage of cutouts one day. I haven't decided what yet, either a table top for my future man cave or a MAME/emu cabinet are the front runners.

Toss the archives? Never! I love my 300+lbs of paper!
It's so awesome to look back in time and see mullets and neon and power gloves and ads for games from Enterbrain, Taito, Acclaim, Tradewest and Sunsoft.

A history of a simpler time with simple graphics when ninjas were boss and shooting game previews showed all the powerups and stage walk throughs and cheat codes and art mail...back to a time when EGM didn't utterly suck donkey taint and gamepro did. There is so much history and nostalgia in those old pages...

I kept mine for a long time, they just take too much space and weigh a lot in bundles, I just didn't want to deal with them anymore.

If you're moving around a lot, I can understand but I definitely regret not keeping/getting more mags from the 80s/90s. Some of the early NPs and Next Generations are so hard to find now, and cost quite a bit.

I love going back every now and then and reading how the Ultra 64 will change everything or the upcoming Final Fantasy VII.

They are a huge pain in the ass to move for sure. I've lugged them accross the country to 13 different homes in 3 different cities (soon to be 4) but it never even crossed my mind to get rid of them. Every poster that ever came with an EGM is in there as well as cool random stuff like the Conker BFD preorder whoopie cushion and the alternate gamecube box art inserts...
