    Default How Do You Track Your Game Collection?

    I know there are lots of sites that help with tracking video game collections, but how does everyone on Digitpress keep track of their collections? Why do you use that service? And if you don't keep track of what you collect, why not?

    I place everything in my R.O.D. and keep it layered this way I have plausible deniability when I say "I have not picked any games up in a while"

    I use rfgen when the mood hits me.

    And I'm pretty sure there is a thread for this but then again I may be wrong.

    Me too. I've a notepad doc for each system. I do it so I can keep track of what I pay and then what I sell for each lot, making sure to at least break even. It's also fun to look back through and see what I got three years ago, or add up my profits.

    Excel pretty much exclusively. When I can't be arsed to organise it all I just print out the current lot and add the newest additions on the bottom in pen, then do a mass update at a later time.

    You're not wrong. There is at least one thread on this topic here...somewhere.


    I made an Access file for my NES games one time since there are a lot of games with similar names (Super, Ninja, Dragon, etc.) and things got a little hazy in those areas. But, my computer died and I never retrieved the information from that hard drive.

    So now I do for the NES what I do for all the other systems, I just remember them.

    I used to use an Excel file, but I haven't updated it in several years, and I'm not going back now, so I voted "I don't track it."

    Using an issue of VCG is a great idea, though, that seems a lot faster than having to manually type out game names in an Excel file, or browsing through a site.
    If you can't do it with 8 bits, you don't need to do it!

    Default Managing your collection

    What do you guys use for managing your collection? I am trying to enter my stuff in to keep track of it all and hopefully be able to keep a copy on my phone so I don't have to wonder if I have a certain thing. Note: I do not have web access on my phone.

    I know about the Collectorz.com stuff, but has anyone created their own Access database or is there some other piece of software that you guys can recommend? Thanks in advance.
