    Default a small tour of my game room

    I was taking pictures of my game room to show some relatives so I figured i'd show them to everyone here aswell.


    This is the most organized my collection has been since I started collecting.


    My entire PS1 collection.(all my lose games are in the cd folders)

    My PS3 and PSP games and my gaming setup with my high end standard definition TV that's not even capable of stereo sound!

    My Dreamcast, Master System, Genesis, SNES, Wii and DS collections.

    My Virtual Boy, Lynx, Neo Geo Pocket, GBA SP and PSP systems (the PSP's are in the black and metal cases.) and my original GameBoy collection

    My Saturn, Sega CD, NES, PS2, XBOX and 3DO collections and my boxed Gameboy, SNES and N64 games and my only Jaguar game.

    Unfortunately I was not able to take pictures of my Game Gear, Gameboy advance, Gamecube and N64 collections due to poor lighting.

    That is a great looking collection. Do you have a main focus for it?

    hmm you know I really don't have a focus for my collection. I don't really focus on one console or one genre and i'm not a completest. I just buy games that I think would be fun/interesting or something I know is obscure/rare. So having said all that I guess the focus of my collection is having fun. I would like to complete my Virtual Boy collection someday tho.

    Thanks the only problem with the snes games is that about half of the back row is sports games.

    Thanks for posting your collection. There should be more of these threads, it's always interesting to see what other gamers are into. BTW, what do your relatives think of the extent of your hobby?

    Unless it's more about playing games than just collecting them. I don't mean that as a quip, it's just that some collectors focus more on chronicling/preserving the history, or just padding their collections with sheer volume (or chasing rarities, which is also fun), while others mainly focus on acquiring what they actually want to play...and there are only so many hours in a day to play games after all. As much as I enjoy the handful of decent SEGA CD games, there really aren't enough to warrant tracking them down at a fevered pace, unless you're hardcore.

    My dad thinks i'm obsessed.

    My one Uncle thinks i'm wasting my time playing "those dumb games".

    My Mom takes a little pride in my collection since she helped me build my collection (i'd tell her what games i'm interested in and when she finds them she buys them for me (only when I have the money to pay for them of course ) and she's actually the one who suggested that I take the pictures.

    The rest of my familly is pretty neutral about my gaming/collecting habbits.

    That's pretty cool of your mom. How old are you, BTW, and how long have you been collecting video games if you don't mind he asking?

    Also, do you have a favorite system?

    I'm 17 I've been collecting for about 6 years but i've been playing for 12. I don't really favour one console more than another.

    I was going thru some pictures on my harddrive and I found this picture of my game room from 3 years ago.

    Only 17, with all of that retro gear? That's pretty impressive. A lot of that stuff is older than you (but I'm sure you heard that before). From those pictures is seems you're definitely a lot more organized now.

    That little black Yoshi is pretty nice. And what's that cool little hammer thing on your shelf from?

    I have heard that many times before.

    yeah I had alot of stuff in my room that I needed to get rid of so that gave me alot more room to store stuff gaming and otherwise.

    And what's that cool little hammer thing on your shelf from?
    That's from Mario Power Tennis on Gamecube they were giving them away with happy meals at Mcdonalds at one point but I got that hammer from a local thrift store.

    Being only 17 makes this more amazing. I'm 17, I don't have nearly this much stuff, and most of its in my closet because my house is small and I have to share room

    I Man, I hated those crappy FMV Digital Pictures games. I did like the 32X version of Night Trap though, I won't even deny that. I've never played Wirehead. There's isn't much middle ground in the SEGA CD library, IMO. Most of the games are either pretty good or really terrible.

    This is going to sound really cheesy but it really dosen't matter how many games you have as long as you play and enjoy the ones you have.

    But if you want to build up your collection the only advice I have is to hit up yard sales, flea markets and thrift stores on a regular basis buy anything that's cheap that looks interesting and don't be picky about condition. that's how I built up my collection. and for the space issue well you'll have to be creative when thinking about new places to store new games.
