So there you have it all 82 items, some may ask why i collect these well, Descent & Freespace have very well thought original designs and sicne day one they were released as demo's I got hooked to them and wanted only more and more and now this is my result, collecting these games has always been on my mind first you like it alot then it becoems an addition then it becomes an obsession, no matter the more I can find the greater the thrill!

Wow, awesome collection! I've always enjoyed the Descent games, and felt they never got the respect they deserve. Nice to know that I'm not the only one.

That is freakin impressive, congrats and well done.

I just got the USA Definitive Collection boxed, my first boxed Descent games. Before that all I had was that Descent demo diskette sleeve. I've gotta say this is some serious inspiration. Of course, I've already crowded the room with my self-professed world's largest Maxis collection so maybe it'll have to wait until more space appears, hehe.
