    - My name is Ben B
    - I'm from Minneapolis, MN
    - heard on some other games site post that DP was the place to go for retro gaming
    - My favorite games are Super dodgeball, super metroid, pretty much all the zelda games, turtles in time, Contra, Mega man X and i know i lot of people are gonna hate on me for this but i can't deny world of warcraft ( char:chemdawg, server: winterhoof)
    - the systems i collect for are mostly nintendo one's,mostly NES and SNES i really grew up on nintendo, loved sega too but nintendo just seemed to always hold a special place in my heart (lame i know lol)
    - I'm a college student majoring in Human services
    - Grew up on games, was a gamer until i got to highschool and learned about the wonders of drugs and sex and kinda just forgot about games, but as of recently when i was moving i found all my old games in some boxes remembered all the good and bad times i had playin these games, poped in a few games and fell in love with them again. i collect these games now to play them, not just to collect them, cause thats how this started. My collection didnt start as a collection, i just loved to play games, i quit for a while and come back to find i have a pretty decent collection in the making and didnt even know it. so im a noob to this retro game collecting, but noob with a pretty good start atleast.

    Im Typhoon Timmy from Corpus Christi, Tx found Digitpress through my boss who runs Play Again Classic Video Games.

    I love alllll kinds of games, but fighting games are my favorite. Street Fighter and the lot are some of my faves, but I also like tons of oddball games. I collect games that I think are fun (best kind) and Saint Seiya and Castlevania games. Working on a complete Castlevania (need the amiga version soooo bad)

    So thats me, running a game store and just joining the forums here.

    Helllllo everyone.

    Japan means so much to me. I grew up with this hole culture. All I was mostly interested about since I was a little boy was Japan or has to do with it.
    I feel more connected with Japan as with my own country. It is hard to explain it to someone who don't know how I feel about it. So this is my big BIG GOAL. Now I start to learn japanese. I am just at the begining but there is allways a start, right?

    So thats me. ^_____________^
    So HI TO EVERYONE~

    Just thought I'd introduce myself.

    My name is Kyle
    I'm 19
    I'm from Maine
    I'm temporarily working at a group home in south coast Mass
    In the process of going to school for film production

    Interests:
    Video games: I grew up playing Atari and NES but I enjoy playing everything up to the 360.
    I'm currently collecting NES, Dreamcast, Gamecube, and 32x but will pick up anything that looks good.
    Favorite games: Guardian Legend, Nightshade, Mega Man 6, and Dead Space just to name a few...

    I'm a huge film nut that has a pathetic passion for trash cinema. My preferred areas of film are westerns(American & Italian), giallos, Tromaesque trash, and Japanese Yakuza & samurai flicks...

    My favorite actors are Buster Keaton, Klaus Kinski, John Wayne, John Saxon,
    Lee Marvin, Jack Elam, and Walter Brennen.
    I play guitar mostly but I dabble in few other instruments occasionally.
    I listen to everything but lean towards NWOBHM, Death, and black metal.
    Favorite bands are King Diamond, Accept, Sigh, and Morbid Angel

    I'm excited to join this friendly little community of game enthusiasts and would also love to talk to anyone who also enjoys some of my mentioned interests.

    Ha, I live only a few minutes from there. My grandfather lives right on Swetts pond near there. The name unfortunately doesn't seem to ring any bells but I can't say I know really anyone who lives in that part. I didn't even realize there were other death metal fans in Orrington...we are few and far between within the woods of Maine. Since you're from Newport you know of any local metal groups in ME?( the doom band Ocean and a few BM groups are the only one that comes to mind right now) The Bangor area is smothered with hardcore and that just doesn't tickle my god damn fancy one bit. Thanks for the welcoming!

    I echo The Shawn's welcome, Jackelam. It seems that you managed to get all the New England metalheads out of the wood works tonight.

    Let's see. I'm Lorrie from South Texas, found the forums through a ton of aimless clicking about. My favorite game, despite its being panned by virtually everyone, is Quest 64. I'm not that hardcore a collector, but I'd say, Atari 2600, SNES and NES and my favorite, N64. I'm a student in real life, planning on doing something with animation in the future. Known as the video game guru in my family. I began playing video games when I was a wee little one, playing the levels my older brother had already unlocked, and 12 years later, the tables have turned!

    Hey,

    I'm Obesolete from Toronto Canada.

    I've been collecting for most of my life, but never started taking it seriously until i ran into my now almost husband again after years so not seeing each other since highschool.

    Together we've been collecting mainly nes and snes carts with a total of 150+ nes carts and 80 some-odd snes carts and consider them our pride and joy.
    We also have several hundreds of gameboy/DS/SP/ps1/2/3/cube/dreamcast/xbox games scattered among the house/in our parents basements.

    our second bedroom has become a shrine to classic gaming and also my workshop for my Etsy store Closet Monsters where i sell custom plushies.

    Default Greetings, all!

    Greetings, all!

    Name is Keith, aka Jan Lazer. I'm a 26 year old father of one boy and one to-be-girl(July 14, expected) from Leduc, Alberta, Canada. I've been playing video games since I was 2 years old...Started off on the Atari 2600(which I still have) and the Commodore Vic 20/64(also still have).

    My favorite game of all time has to be Wonder Boy in Monster Land for the Sega Master System(which is also my favorite system). I'm currently in the process of finishing an entire US release collection for the system and am only about 10 games short(pending a deal I'm in the process of making). After that is finished, I'm planning on doing the same for all Sega systems, as I possess every one of them except for the Saturn.

    My drive to collect games is not just for my own personal pride/amusement, but also so I have something to pass down to my children, as I know for a fact they will remember their father as that 'crazy gaming, hair metal listening idiot'.lol.

    Hi, I'm angelo from belgium.

    I'm nearing 30s, and am salesman.

    I have been collecting only recently, and my main collected items
    are a still-packed copy of amstrad's Terrorpods, and Dragon for the jaguar.

    I have found this forum through a link on lostlevels.
    My main ambition is to own a real prototype game that differs of the released version.

    I write some articles for http://retrotrivia.net since short, but not much is up
    there yet.

    Howdy all,
    Name's Marlow' I'm from Texas
    long time addict first time poster. I was pretty big into games back in the late 80's early 90's then my mom made me sell all my systems and games to finance a computer since it could play games and do school work. I picked the habit back up in the late 90's with a PSX and an N64 and have been back ever since, mostly on the 360 nowadays, I have always been a die hard shooter fan.

    I recently got the bug to reaccquire some of my lost childhood and picked up another Genesis to go with the games and SNES I bought off my brother a few years ago and am in the process of getting that all set up, still looking for a reasonably priced TG16 (while I lived through the NES era, I always had a soft spot for the 16 bit machines moreso) I found this site while perusing the net.
    I'm currently about to be a first time father just in time to convert another to the cause. In my daily life I'm an insurance adjuster and husband with a game widow for a wife
