    Hello!
    I started collecting retro consoles about five years back, but hadn't messed with them in the last few years.
    I've had my interest renewed after a few amazingly cheap finds at the local dirt mall. In the last two weeks, I've picked up a TurboGrafx 16, working and complete for $2, a Dreamcast with 4 controllers and 20 games for $40, and Panzer Dragoon for the Saturn for $5.

    So now my 360 and Wii have been sitting alone and unloved while I play on Skies of Arcadia and Panzer Dragoon.

    Consoles I own so far: Channel F, 3DO, Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast, TurboGrafx 16, NES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Xbox, 360, PSX, PS2.

    Hi everyone, Stephanie here. Been off and on lurker for many many many years now.

    Been playing video games practically since I was born, from Atari to Xbox360. I do have a special preference towards old school gaming no later than the 16-bit era.

    Over the years built up a HUGE collection of gaming memorabilia. I'm especially fond of my tabletop handheld collection, and my Vectrex. I've pretty much ran out of room to the point I had to sell off many of my consoles and carts, so I had to slow down my collecting at this point.

    I have a MAME cabinet I built myself, and I've also done a little work in the gaming industry over the years. Just got to finally visit my first NAVA meeting this past weekend and had a great time!

    I actually started collecting in Junior High - parents wouldn't let me have an NES because they said I'd monopolize the TV (they were right!), but eventually relented when they bought a new TV and let me buy a Genesis to use w/ the old one. As an adult, I really started my collection, buying up used systems (Saturn was my first big score), and just kept going from there.

    Default hi

    hi everyone. I'm Leah and my avi is of my cat, mitty. I live in Oklahoma, where I'm doing the prereqs for nursing school. I sew a lot - it is my other big obsession in life.

    I'm here because, for some strange reason, I've started to totally obsess over older gaming systems & fav games from the past.

    Right now, I only have a few games (Sonic & Sonic Spinball) but no (Genesis) system to play them on. I'd like to get a good system and collect my dream game list.

    Today I looked at a used N64 system with 4 games and one controller for $35. Two of the games are decent: Goldeneye 007 & Super Mario 64. Anyway, I figured I should check prices on ebay & the local game store before buying it.

    I used to have a playstation (sold it a few years ago with all the games), but still have two gamegears & games, my original gameboy, a few gba's and an xbox.

    Before we go any further, I guess I should tell you that four years of my life were spent playing Runescape. There, I've said it. I would still be playing if my account didn't get hacked and subsequently banned. lol. true.

    ok enough about me. woot

    Halo everyone! My name is Blaine and I'm a near 30 year old man trying to recapture his youth by buying up games from his childhood. I mainly collect rpg games, pretty much any system, and I'll just say my collection is, extensive... Anyway, I've trolled your boards for some time and finally came to terms with my inner nerd enough to join and post.

    Outside of gaming I enjoy playing guitar, getting tattoo's, and being inebriated. I live in Arkansas, have a good job, and a Great dog, Bella. I should also mention I have a wonderful, too young/hot/smart for me girlfriend that checks the history of where I've been and reads everything so.... Love you Hailey

    Hi Digital Press,

    My name is David, and I'm from Edinburgh in the UK. I use the name Leynos on most forums. I'm an avid collector of videogames, mainly of the neo-classic, 16-bit and 32-bit eras. My primary focus is Japanese import games, although I have been known to diverge from that where appropriate. My favourite genre is the shoot 'em up, but I also love puzzle games, platformers and scrolling beat 'em ups.

    I'm the proud owner of the following systems:

    Sega Master System, MSX, PC Engine, Super Famicom, Sega Mega Drive, Pioneer Laseractive, Neo Geo MVS, Capcom CPS2, Atari Lynx, Neo-Geo Pocket, Gameboy Pocket, PlayStation, Nintendo 64, Sega Saturn, Dreamcast, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Gamecube, Nintendo DS, PlayStation Portable, Xbox 360 (x2), Wii and PlayStation 3

    Being a mad hoarder, I've also somehow managed to acquire games for a few systems I don't yet own: PC-FX, IGS Polygame Master, Amiga CD32, Atari Jaguar and X68000. I hope to put this to rights and buy these systems sooner or later.

    I'm also an arcade hardware neophyte (I own a few CPS2 boards and one Toaplan PCB). I've built my own Supergun and I'm planning on building a more advanced version soon.

    Happy to meat you all.

    Leynos

    My story of video games is interesting.

    I have been behind in every department, except when I got my GBA SP and my DS Lite.

    Seriously:

    Everyone had a Super Nintendo and Genesis, all I had was the NES (and Mario, so should I really complain?).

    Everyone had a N64, Playstation, and Saturn, I had a Genesis (and Sonic, so should I really complain?).

    Everyone had a Gamecube, X-box, and PS2, I had a N64 (I didn't have Mario or Zelda or anything!).

    And, the Christmas right after the Wii and PS3 came out, I got a PS2.
    Ironically months after I finally got a PS1.

    I'm always behind, but, it makes me respect old games.
    Like, Doom. The first FPS I ever played was Halo. So I didn't exp. the older FPSes. Last Feb, a friend lent me his copy of the Doom Collectors Edition with all three games (Doom, Doom II, and Final Doom). I love it so much!
    While, if I give it to someone else in my school, they may insult it for it primitive-ness. They are idiots.

    Anyway, when it comes to video games, as long as it is still fun to play, I will play it.

    List of Consules:

    NES, Genesis, N64, GBA SP, PS1, PS2, DS Lite, Game Gear.

    Hey hey,

    I'm Michael, a.k.a. Bad Atom. I used to be a hardcore game collector about eight or nine years back, but I gave it up cold turkey because I needed a car more than I needed bookshelves full of rare NES games.

    I still have more than a passing interest in retro gaming, though, and have been known to play the occasional emulated game. (I just played Super Mario 64 for the first time last year. Yeah, I stopped playing games after Super Nintendo.)

    I've also dabbled in game programming (the games in my sig for example) but it's nothing I want to do professionally. And I've also made more than a few video game remixes/covers.

    Looking forward to joining the discussions...

    Been on this forum for a while, love following the discussions and check back couple of times a week, so I guess I too have a passion for old games.

    Name - Kevin

    Location - Scottsdale, AZ

    Age - Nearing the time I'm supposed to 'grow up'

    Why Retro games? I was always the kid on the block with all the games growing up, Started intellivision and turned NES (my best friend across the way had the commodore and atari, turned Genesis, so saw no need for those, he'd walk over to my place, and me to his, etc.)... Lost interest a little bit around high school / college (still played, but just FPS and sports). Then started selling and trading online after college, grew back my passion for all things from my childhood. Yes I own a 360 (only 4 games though over 2 years, COD 4, COD WOW, Bioshock, Assassins Creed). Outside of that I've started building back my collections of older systems and games While I have many games for the systems, there is always 1 set aside that I'll always keep with each system, my favorite I could pretend to like some obscure titles, but I'm talking about that 1 game I'd have to have and could play over and over. So for now I'm sitting on:

    NES (Super Mario Bros), SNES (Super Mario world), N64 (Mario 64), Turbo Grafx 16 (Keith Courage), Intellivision (Utopia), Gamecube (Mario Kart DD), Panasonic 3do (Toon Time in the classroom, dont know why ), Genesis (Herzog Zwei), Sega CD (Night Trap), Sega Saturn (Castlevania Dracula X), Playstation (Tekken 2).

    I won't count the handhelds, Next purchase Neo Geo AES (with Metal Slug, Yes I realize the price IF i find it), and on a cheaper note any Atari Jaguar system (actually never played).

    Game on guys!
