    Hi all, I'm Nick and im also from Melbourne Australia.

    Ive been on here for a few years now, but the collectors gallery side of it, never this forum untill now.

    Ive been collecting for about 10 years now, and have massed a huge collection of all types of consoles and games from many years.

    My main interests are collectors edition games, and import games, jap and usa for example.

    Please look at my gallery anytime "Donniemo" to seee for your self, I buy a game or games at least daily so thats where most of my money goes.

    Other then that I just wanted to say hi to everyone, feel free to chat to me anytime. Cheers for now.

    Hi, I'm Bruce Morrison from NYC.

    I only just found this website. I'm not a collector and never been a part of the retro scene.

    In 2005 I started a project to bring Marathon to Xbox LIVE Arcade. In 2007 my team finished the game and it went on sale.

    I have an obsessive love for the game Marathon, and all older FPS titles.

    Hey guys, I'm Ed and I'm a pretty big fan of oldschool gaming. I'm 18 and actually got into it pretty late (post-2000's) because growing up we didn't have any videogame systems, only PC. My first system was my cousin's used GBA, and since then I've collected several new and old systems, including NES, N64, PS1, PS2, DS, Wii, Odyssey 2, a Super Pong, etc. I'm primarily a PC gamer when it comes to modern gaming, having built several gaming rigs for myself and friends.

    I'm not a hardcore collector, I don't have anything rare, and I mostly collect the games I want to play, but I still have a great interest in these old games. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of playing NES with my grandma; we played games such as SMB1 and 3, Tennis, Bases Loaded, etc, and she taught me most of what I know about SMB. Just found this forum while I was in my "retro mode" and it looks like a great place!

    My name is Josh. I started collecting when I was 9 years old. Now that I am fourteen I have a fairly large collection of classic games. Collecting old games has became a key part of my life. When I get out of school I enjoy warming up the Vcs or the Nes and playing my heart out. I never have accepted modern technology as much as I should have. When I see any type of old technology I come to it like a moth to a light bulb!

    Haha, I'm kinda like that too. At least when it comes to certain stuff, like cars and videogame systems. Old stuff is just so cool! I guess we're sort of young stubborn old men. GET OFF MY LAWN

    I haven't been here in three months, so I figured it was high time to reintroduce myself. The other day I went to the Digital Press store in Clifton to start my Genesis collection and I figured that since I took the time to finally visit the store, I need to get back on here.

    Howdy all! I'm Jen. The highlight of my day was playing a ferocious round of Astrosmash, so I'm pretty sure I belong here.

    I'm good. This is a pretty active forum, so I guess they don't have too much time for every new member.

    Hey all you beautiful people! Well, my screen name is obvious, but I also go by Kellan, my parent-given name. I've been obsessed with retro games since they were contemporary (one of my fondest early memories is unwrapping my first Sega Genesis bundle, Christmas '94), but only recently have I truly come to be as truly obsessed as I am. Not a big collector of obscure systems, but I have the essentials, an NES top loader, SNES, Genesis, PS3 and Wii, and a boatload for all of them - unfortunately, all my RL friends are pretty mediocre and generally unappreciative of games, so I come here seeking like-minded comraderie!

    In my life apart from the controller, I am a daytime phone receptionist at a medical clinic, and a night time novelist - my work in progress deals quite heavily in video games, as it is a "period piece" which takes place during the Sega/SNES years and beyond - this monster is another prime reason I've chosen to sign up. To see other people's views, and further my understanding of the entertainment medium I love most.

    But down to brass tacks...I haven't listed my favorite games!! Kinda hard to narrow it down, but I'm going to have to go with some flimsy sort of top 5:

    1. SMW2: Yoshi's Island
    2. Earthbound
    3. Super Castlevania IV
    4. Duck Tales
    5. Mega Man 2

    There's so many others though...pretty much everything Konami came out with from like 91-95, Sonic 1 & 2, A Link to the Past...yada yada yada. Anyway, I look forward to meeting everyone, and sharing the love!
    What an annoying knock!

    There's not a lot of love here, just a bunch of wise-asses. Don't expect much.

    Default hey

    I've been on this site for about a month now, but for some reason just noticed this thread. My name is Chris and I'm from Ohio. I've recently gotten back into my genesis. Compared to some of the maniacs on here I wouldn't really call myself a collector but I have managed to acquire about 50 genesis games in the last month, including four systems and a sega cd for no good reason. A couple master system games (but no console) and some sega cd games. I have also gotten my hands on a neo geo pocket color with some games. Im looking forward to getting more of everything I guess. My childhood games ruled and Modern Warfare 2 just makes me break xbox controllers, so here I am.
