    Newbie here. I'm 23 and I started playing the game & watch. It was like a gameboy micro but just had 1 game. Then there's the family computer, Nintendo, and so on. It's amazing how you've seen these things evolved!
    I'm really interested to know more here. I'll see you around everyone!

    - Who you are
    Arno, 34

    - Where you live
    Perth, Australia (since 2 years, original the Netherlands)

    - How you found the forums
    Have been looking here for ages every now and then, just never registered

    - What your favorite games are
    Dunno really, I like a lot, from Super Cobra on the Atari XL/XE up to God of War on the PS3..... I'm not into RPG's.
    Edit: I remember, Tempest 2000 and REZ.

    - What systems you collect for
    Woa, hard one... I think I collect everything... I like boxed systems the most, with some boxed games. The rest can be loose.

    - What you do in "real life"
    Sparky (Electrician)

    - Any other interesting facts, like how you began collecting, etc.
    Used to have an Atari 2600 with 6 games. About 20 years ago, my mom gave it to her almost blind really old aunt, and when she was to blind to see, about 12 years later, we got it back, of course she couldn't find the games. I found the console and started my endless search. When I left for Australia gave a lot of games and consoles away, like ps1 kiosk, a truckload of games and systems (no joke, just kept some stuff), and decided that was the end of my collecting. Started last December again and am on at least 30 different boxed systems (like 2600 vader, 2600 woody 6 sw, Saturn, Nes etc) and 15 unboxed systems (like Coleco Gemini, Intellivision, N64 etc), is it ever gonna end?
    Dunno how many games I have ATM, bought a bigger house, which still has to be build. than I can start unpacking all my boxes which are stacked on each other and start drewling over my beloved pearls again.

    Tyler's the name
    26
    Central vermont usa
    i love gaming but just like most things i love history to them even if i didn't have one.

    What i own for gaming systems is
    a computer for which i am talking to you on
    a Xbox 360
    a Game Cube
    a Xbox
    PSP
    N64
    Game Boy Color
    Game Boy Original
    and a NES

    i got my start in gaming in the late 80s when i played on my uncles atari 2600 and then his NES
    and after i got my hands on borrowing a 2600 for a few years i was hooked on gaming for sure!

    i work in a local factory basically as a grunt worker
    but do have inspiration to some day open up a shop in the area that specializes in selling collectable games and their consoles as there seems to be a growing market for that and for people my age or older that love the feel of nes controller in hand or a atari 2600 joy stick or the sheer size and weight of a Atari Lynx

    got the idea from a game shop in salem massachusetts that does just that that i frequent when traveling down there!

    i feel i know alot about classic and rare games and consoles but as i learned i am forever learning!!!! so yea

    Hi guys,

    I'm new to the site. I am an avid gamer and I love all types of games (old and new). I grew up supporting the supermario franchise, castlevania, megaman, contra, mortal kombat, and the first installments of Final fantasy (1-7). I am also addicted to war and building games such as the C&C series, Age of empires, Warcraft, battlerealms, and the like. I also am a fan of role playing games such as Diablo 1 and 2, Final fantasy, etc. I am currently into the God of War Trilogy, World of Warcraft, and other online games. With programming developments and gaming console improvements, games are continuously evolving. A lot has changed on a graphics, sound, and gameplay perspective. This I think is the major reason why people get addicted to games nowadays, and I am not surprised if in the near future our population will grow significantly.

    So I just wound up here while looking for the value of an item I found. I am a novice collector and I would like a hand in finding out how much a Nintendo Radio Boy is... Not the radio that attaches to the top of the system. This is an AM/FM Radio shaped like an original gameboy. It is still sealed in its original package. I couldnt really find it anywhere and I am looking for someone who might have a better idea. I have a couple of them and I posted 1 on ebay. It currently has a bid of 34.99 but I don't know if this is a good price for this. I posted it higher and did not get any bids. Please let me know what you think.

    Hello all,

    My name is Rob and currently reside in Jersey. I've been coming to this site and the store for about 3 years but never actually created an account. I've always enjoyed games that thought outside of the box when it came to game design. For instance anything Shin Megami Tensei is genius along with games made by Bioware althought Mass Effect 2 left a little to be desired. Some of my favorite games would be Metal Gear Solid (1st was the best IMO), Shadow of the Colossus, Psychonauts, anything Kirby, and A Link to the Past just to name a few. I currently work for Columbia University working for their IT department in the hopes of getting my A+ certification. It's a pleasure to meet you all.

    ***lurker mode off!***
    Hello fellow gamers and collectors! My name is Scott and I'm in Jacksonville, FL. I've been a gamer since the glory days of the Atari 2600 and Colecovision. I discovered this site after watching the sad, slow decline of traffic on the RGVC newsgroup. I collect for all systems and love learning anything I can about them and their software. I'm particularly fond of the PS1, SNES and Genesis. I love survival horror, sci-fi shooters, adventure, and RPGs. Well, now that I've introduced myself, I'll be seeing you guys (and gals) in the forums...

    My names Kyle. A buddy of mine brought me to the store yesterday and I was in heaven. I looked the place up and found this forum. I'm just starting a collection now that I'm out of college and working full time, for whatever reason. 21 years old and grew up on my dads Intellivision II. Best case scenario in my eyes. Working on growing my NES collection very slowly. My list of consoles to get is massive though. My time will come..

    Default Why, hello there.

    Hey hey hey. I'm the new guy.

    Name's David, and I'm very happy to be here! (I forget which movie I'm quoting). I was born in a small town in Missouri, did my undergrad at Berklee College of Music in Boston, had a brief stint in Philadelphia, and currently reside in Chicago, IL. What can I say, I get around. *chicka bow wow*

    I've actually been a frequent visitor to the site and forums, but never thought to get involved and register until today. I must be bored due to being with family, and away from my collection. Hey, they're great people, but I was nearly through Super Metroid for the whatever-eth time and.. yeah. Anyhoo..

    As many can attest, naming your favorite games can be difficult, particularly when there are so many variables that make a great game (re-playability, music, nostalgia, etc). So I'll just say that, yes, I love all the games that 90% of collectors love. The Zeldas, the Castlevanias, the Marios, all go without saying... even though I just said it. Some of my favorites growing up were The Guardian Legend, Jaws, Pilot Wings, Pitfall, Final Fantasy II (IV), Rampage, Wolf 3d, Marble Madness, Paperboy, California Games, NBA Jam, Goldeneye, RBI Baseball, is anyone still reading this? This is impossible.

    The systems for which I currently collect are:

    Atari 2600, 7800
    Nintendo Entertainment System
    Super Nintendo Entertainment System (why am I typing these out?)
    Nintendo 64
    Tiger Hand-helds
    Xbox 180
    Xbox 360

    In the real world, I am a Professional Musician. A multi-instrumentalist, but predominantly a drummer. I actually have a youtube channel which features some "drumming to video games" typed media. http://www.youtube.com/caffeineadvocate if you're at all interested. I play gigs, teach lessons, teach drumlines, compose, and such. I wear a lot of hats--none of which pay enough for a sealed copy of Bubble Bath Babes, but hey.. what can you do?

    I suppose I've always been a collector. Much of my collection are my childhood games. I didn't take it seriously until about 2005-2006, just after moving to Boston (having recycled about 15 years of GamePro Magazine a month before *face palm*). I started on eBay, wised up and switched to thrift stores, and continue to beg friends to raid their parent's basements for their old stuff. You all, I'm sure, know how it goes.

    I'm here to be around like-minded individuals, share my excitement on any recent 'scores' (SNES Shadowrun CIB for 2 bucks!), and get some tips from those more experienced.

    Sorry for the autobiography. I'm drunk. Bye!

    - Who you are
    I am Adrian A.K.A. Raekwon and I'm 24.

    - Where you live
    Tampa,Florida

    - How you found the forums
    I've seen the the website and the forums mentioned many times on the Retro games thread in the Games subforum on somethingawful.com and figured I should join these forums.

    - What your favorite games are
    RPG's, SHMUPS, and Fighting games are my favorite genre's but I play anything thats fun.

    - What systems you collect for
    I've just started collecting games and systems again, so right now I'm focusing on getting SNES/Super Famicom games and NES/famicom games right now, but I am planning on getting a Genesis/Mega Drive, Turbografx/PC engine, and would love to get a Neo Geo AES or a MVS. Also collect games for Dreamcast, Saturn, and PS1/2.

    - What you do in "real life"
    I am a student right now studying for my journalism/english degree's.

    - Any other interesting facts, like how you began collecting, etc.
    Ive been a gamer since the age of three when my older cousin gave me his Atari 7800 and a bunch of games, and then a year later he gave me his NES and thats when my love for videogames began.

    If you would like to chat about older games just hit me up on either facebook or AIM!

    Who you are

    My name is Clint and I'm 30.

    Where you live

    Utah

    How you found the forums

    I was searching Google for a retro video game forum. This was the best one on the first page.

    What your favorite games are

    That's a hard question. I'm the kind of person that hates top ten lists. I don't mind if other people want to make them, don't ask me too. I like far too many game to play favorites. I like most all games. My least favorite genres are RPGs and sports games.

    What systems you collect for

    Currently I collect for:

    NES
    SNES
    N64
    CameCube
    Wii
    Jaguar
    Genesis
    32X
    Dreamcast
    Game Gear
    Playstation 1
    Playstation 2
    X-Box
    X-box 360
    PC

    Systems I'm contemplating buying:

    Saturn
    Sega CD
    Atari 7800
    Playstation 3

    What you do in "real life"

    I'm a field engineer for Hewlett Packard. I go around and fix desktops, laptops, servers, and printers for business customers. I also run my own business doing the same for consumers.

    Any other interesting facts, like how you began collecting, etc.

    I began collecting the Christmas I got my first game system. A Genesis model 1 which I still have and play.

    Who you are

    My name is Baker McCutcheon and I am 25 years old.

    Where you live

    I live in Hampton, Virgina with my Fiance Carolyn

    How you found the forums

    I found these forums while searching for a complete list of US SNES games

    What your favorite games are

    Man . . . That is a difficult question to answer. I tend to prefer games from the 8-bit or 16-bit era, but I can appreciate any game if it has some merit. As far as genres go, I tend to prefer thought provoking games such as puzzle, fighting and rpg games, but at the same time I can't turn down a well made platformer.

    What systems you collect for

    I currently own and collect for:

    32X
    Dreamcast
    Game Boy
    Game Boy Color
    Game Boy Advance
    Game Cube
    Game Gear
    Genesis
    Jaguar
    Neo Geo
    NES
    Nintendo 64
    Nintendo DS
    Playstation
    Playstation 2
    PSP
    Saturn
    Sega CD
    SNES/Super Famicom
    TurboGrafx
    Wii
    Xbox
    Xbox 360

    What you do in "real life"

    In real life, I am an 8th grade geometry teacher.

    Any other interesting facts

    I am a multi-instrumentalist who enjoys covering video game music. I have recording numerous songs from the 8-bit and 16-bit era and I am currently seeking some other dedicated and talented musicians who would like to play some live shows. I plan on reposting all of my music online after I finish tweaking some of the recordings. I will certainly try to let the great people on this forum know when I post it so I can get some feedback.

    On another note, I just bought my 700th SNES game, which means that I only need 20 more games and I will own the entire US SNES library! I already have the majority of the rare games, so I plan on completing my SNES collection within a few months.

    Sorry this post wasn't very entertaining, lol. . .
    It's official, my snes cart only collection is complete! The collection includes both competition carts, ISS, ISSD, EMBR/SR and Super Noah's Ark 3D.


    Please check out my video game cover music.

    Hi there, I'm a University Associate Professor, living in St.Petersburg, Russia. I have found this forum via Google, while searching for old Artworx poker games for sale. My fav games are Tomb Raider series and also Starcraft & Warcraft classics. And, of course, Blade Runner. Now I'm mostly interested in DOS PC games, however, I have some Sega MD (genesis) and Nintendo cartridges - though I do not have the systems themselves now, since I have bought the cartridge, I think it's quite fair to use PC emulations (which allow to save, BTW =). Hope the 10 days will pass soon enough, and I'll be back with my wish/offer list. I guess, it will be rude to print it now and thus break the rules.

    Regards,
    Anton Lebedev
