    I'm Joshua Hacker, and no that's not a joke. My last name literally is Hacker.
    I live in the Midwest of the USA. It's not a bad place to live, and it's cool being from the same part of the country as Mellencamp and Seger.

    I Love making people laugh, and have been putting comedy vids on youtube. I specialize in impressions, and sometimes a little prop comedy is thrown in. I just got some of these new programs figured out, and need a little time to script out my material. I'm not going pro, I just wanna do it for the fun of doing it.

    Please check me out on youtube. My channel is JRodHacker, just like on here. Please rate and comment. If you don't like something I say or do, I'm open to constructive criticism.

    I study Martial Arts, and love going to tournaments. I can hold my own in a fight, but I prefer running forms. Our school's competition team is kinda small, but we do good. I'm the weapons specialist, and I'm best with Sai, Tonfa and Nunchakus.

    I believe that no fighting style is better or worse. It just boils down to if you are learning good techniques and stances, or if your teacher is an idoit showing you lazy technique and doesn't care if you can protect yourself as long as he gets paid to teach. So, yeah...good technique or bad technique.



    My favorite games for each system I've played....except Hand Held.
    NES- Mega Man 2, Castlevania & Super Mario Bros. 3

    SNES- Mega Man 7, Super Castlevania 4, TMNT 4 & Ranma 1/2 Hard Battle

    GENESIS- Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Vector Man 2

    N64- Mario Kart 64, Donkey Kong 64, Banjo-Tooie & Super Smash Bros.

    GCN- Sonic Adventure 2 Battle, Super Smash Brothers & Custom Robo

    PS1- Mega Man Legends 2, Mega Man X4, Oddworld Abe's Oddysee, Crash Bandicoot 2, Crash Bash, Mortal Kombat 4 & Castlevania SOTN

    PS2- InuYasha Secret of the Cursed Mask, Shadow The Hedgehog & Mortal Kombat Armageddon, Mega Man X7 & Indiana Jones and the Emporor's Tomb

    XBOX- Star Wars JK Jedi Academy, Halo 2, Mortal Kombat Deception, Oddworld Munch's Oddysee & Dead or Alive 3

    XBOX360-Halo 3 ODST, Dead or Alive 4, Bomberman Act Zero, Street Fighter 4 & Liesure Suit Larry Box Office Bust

    Default Sega fan new to these forums.

    Hi my name is Zyo on most web sites and online games. I live in Maryland in the usa. Heard about these forums after finding sega-16.com. Some of my favorite games are Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Phantasy Star IV, Triggerheart Exelica, Soul Calibur and Tekken.

    My first system was an nes however I sold that to buy my genesis when I was a kid. I've had many different systems growing up but always ended up holding onto my sega systems. I still have my same genesis model 1 and my launch day dreamcast. I never had the desire to get rid of my sega systems like the others and my dreamcast still sees more play than even my ps3 and has always been hooked up since launch day. Recently I decided to buy a sega cd and saturn to play what I missed out on growing up. I don't know if I'd consider myself a collector, I just have more fun playing older games than newer ones it seems. In some instances I guess I get the collection bug though, I own four versions of symphony of the night lol.

    Well it's good to be here looks like an interesting place to kill some time.

    - Who I am: The Devil- a.k.a. Sean...remember that guy your mother warned you about? I used to beat that guy up at least once a week.

    - Where I live: Akron, OH...the rubber capital of the world! (OK, that didn't sound right...)

    - How I found the forums: Honestly, I do so much crap on the internet, it's hard to say. I bookmarked this site the other day...it was either a search on some classic game or another I was doing, or completely by accident when I spilled coffee all over my keyboard. Either way, it's nice to be here. Surprised I didn't find the place earlier.

    - What your favorite games are: Do I really have to pick a favorite? There's no way I could! Final Fantasy III (VI?) comes to mind here...whenever something bad happens in my life, I can hear Kefka's taunting laughter in my mind...with "the Trooper" from Iron Maiden playing in the background. Talk about scary.

    - What systems you collect for: Sadly, due to so many inconsistencies in my life, as of now I own only PS2, PS3, Gamecube, Xbox 360, and Wii. I usually download any of the classic games I play on those systems. I have, however owned just about everything from the Odyssey 2 up...yup, even a Turbografix 16.

    - What you do in "real life": What else? I make rubber! Silicone actually. Good, honest labor, and it pays bills and buys me games.

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

    Hello Everyone,

    This will probably be one long intro.

    I have lurked every now and then on these forums over the years and every time I stopped by I found something interesting. I just want to say I love this forum and all the great information and topics. You guys come up with the best ideas for forum topics. I use to have a forum with similar topics that me and a few local friends would spend time chatting on.

    About myself, I am an owner of an independent game store that has been running as Chaos Gaming Center since 2004 but in the last 6 months we have been working on reorganization and a new name. As of 2010 we will be known as Nomad Game Center. We deal in all kinds of video game items and sometimes we get some great items in at the store. We also purchase PC Games which is more of a rarity these days. Before 2004 I had another game store that was called Game Domain, this was in the 90s. All of these stores have been located in Eau Claire, WI.

    Personally I have been collecting games since the Playstation 2 came out. I started playing games on the Atari 2600, and moved on to the NES and every game system since. I use to sell off my entire game console and all games with it every time a new console came out. As I got older I started missing the old days of gaming and I started re-purchasing games and consoles I sold off. I have never fully recovered my Turbo Grafx collection or my Sega Saturn collection but I have definitely gone much further into collecting some other areas I only dreamed about when I was younger and did not have the income to purchase. For example I now have a 6-slot Neo Geo Arcade that I retro fitted into a 32" Screened Tekken Cabinet.

    I discovered I have a few things in common with Ben Heckendorn. He is a graphic artist, I married a graphic artist, he owns a sign shop, my wife and I own a sign shop, he is from Wisconsin, I am from Wisconsin, he just finished a Bill Paxton Pinball Machine, I am restoring a pinball machine, he always wanted a NEO GEO Arcade Cabinet, and I always wanted one, we both just finished ours. Mine is not quite ready for pics yet since I still need to lay down all the graphics. We both like taking things apart and re-designing them. Now all I have to do is sit down and build everything that has sat far to long in the planning stages. I read Ben will be out at http://www.midwestgamingclassic.com/ this weekend but I will have to go another year. I forgot about this and already made plans this weekend to do something else.

    I started a website a year ago called www.gpsvideogamer.com that I want to make into a one stop place to find all information on Mom and Pop Retro Stores around the world. Currently I only have the game stores listed that I have personally visited. I would love anyone on here that owns a game store or knows of an independent game store in their area that they like to frequent to send me information on. I will add them to the forum listing and update as information is received.

    Some additional hobbies are flashing carts and creating original box art, maps, books, etc for games that were never released in the USA but got English fan translations.

    Favorite Game: Rock 'N Roll Racing for the SNES.

    Sorry for the long intro but thanks for reading. I look forward to years of talking and collecting games.

    Default Who I is ...

    Who you are

    My name is Thomas. I go by either Tom or TJ usually.

    Where you live

    Atlantic Coast, in the USA.

    How you found the forums

    Trying to find a way to fix the ColecoVision I supposedly purchased in "working condition". Though I do own several systems (see below) that I would like to maintain. I figure I've paid money for these systems, and just because they've been phased out doesn't mean I can't keep getting my moneys worth.

    What your favorite games are

    Shockwave (3DO), Lemmings (3DO/PS1), Venture (CV), DK (CV), M.U.L.E. (NES, C64), Baldur's Gate (PS2) ... just to mention a few


    What systems you collect for

    I have the following systems: ColecoVision (not working), 3DO (working), PSOne (working), PS2 (two of them, both working), Wii (working), NDS (working).

    What you do in "real life"

    I am a microbiologist. Unfortunately I know very little about electronics, though I'd like to think I'm a somewhat bright individual and can pick up some basics. I just hope that picking up those basics doesn't mean I go through several machines ruining them all in the process of learning.

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

    I've always liked video gaming but time really didn't allow me to pursue it. However once I got out of school, got a job, and had money to spend I picked it up as one of my hobbies. I have a backlog of games which makes me want to cry (over 100) but I'll get through some (I can't say "most") of them eventually. I'd really like to get a couple of much older consoles though because I'm really getting back to my roots. I can get a few of them on the Wii's Virtual Console but there was no greater feeling than booting up that ColecoVision and seeing that first screen ... made me tear up with joy ... which quickly turned into tears of sadness when I noticed the console wasn't working properly!

    Anyways, that's a bit about me. I hope to stick around for awhile. I have this site bookmarked in my regulars!

    My name is Jeff
    Detroit, Michigan
    ran across this site in the search for the "holy grail"
    I don't collect games much anymore but i have pretty much every game from 1984 to 1997 all in original packaging and with cellophane if it had it and then a few here and there til present day.
    use to play video games in competitions for a living before it's was on tv and there was the internet with several championships under my belt.
    Love video games, would like to design or possibly write/review them but when i was younger i was told it was a bad idea so i "grew up" and moved on. Still wish i could do it though...

    Greetings, fellow gamers.

    - Who am I
    I am Johnny_Boy. My father was an Atarian and my mother lives on Arcadia.

    - Where I live
    In a bubble, somewhere in Québec, Canada.

    - How I found the forums
    Whispers came to my ears long ago, and often I would peek through my telescope to catch a glimpse from the "Digitpress Forum," but its intense red tint made it difficult to gaze for long periods, until I found the secret stone that turns all blue.

    - What my favorite games are
    That's like asking who my favorite child is, if I cared to have 'em. I have a different one everyday.

    - Any other [interesting] facts
    I'm deeply interested in game design, and in creating humble works to call my own. Nothing much now.

    I'm a long time lurker here, and sometimes post on AtariAge. Makes sense to get on this boat, too.

    Hello guys,

    My name is Jeff and I'm from Montreal, Quebec. I found out about the forums by searching for a retro games community. I already collected for most of 64-bit and lower era, however now, i'm mainly looking for SNES games since I got rid of everything else. In real life, i do web development for an ad agency. I'm not looking for anything in particular right now, just a good game when an opportunity comes by.

    Who you are
    The name is Jake. Hi!
    Where you live
    I live in New Hampshire. Kind of a boring place. Maybe that's why I got into video games. :P
    How you found the forums
    I've been a long time lurker. I don't actually remember how I found this place. I'm glad I did though.
    What your favorite games are
    As you can probably tell from my user name/avatar, my absolute favorite game is The World Ends with You. That game is just incredible! In close second is the Silent Hill series. Mario RPG, the Metroid series, and Pokemon Gold/Silver are all tied for third.
    What systems you collect for
    I collect for Sega Dreamcast, Nintendo, and Super Nintendo. I own games for a lot more systems then that. Those are just the systems I hope to own complete collections for someday.
    Any other interesting facts, like how you began collecting, etc.
    I've been playing video games since I was three and I don't think I will ever stop.
