    Hello all. I would have joined a long time ago had I known there was a retro gaming forum this active. If there is a member who uses the Tapper icon, I'll get a new one. It's just temporary anyway.

    Question

    Hello, my name is Tom and I work for a Museum in the UK collecting videogames! This includes hardware, software, magazines, marketing material and original design documents. Personally I grew up playing ZX Spectrum so have fond memories of Dizzy, Skool Daze, Chuckie Egg 2 etc...

    Is there a Marketplace on this forum? I'm trying to find a certain item for an exhibition.

    Thanks

    Tom

    Howdy,

    This is Aaron, Age 18, from Texas in the United States. Lurked here awhile first found out about the place from one of AVGNs videos. I recently dug out my old NES (Action Set, Original Box and everything lol) and SNES (And Bought a Top Loader NES for $30 ) to start collecting and just to play some good games as there aren't as many truly good games coming out nowadays.

    Hello My Name is Kenny I Am 18 Years old Im originally From Maui, Hawaii But I Currently Live in San Jose, California

    First things first since I usually get told "WOW how do you really know this much about classic gaming at this age"

    From being a Child my first memory was playing Super Mario Bros. Now this was when i was like 2.
    Even though at first i always fell in the first hole i started to get better and continued to play.
    It helped me in life. I would say that was my first real big experience problem solving. Which also got me into Preschool Early as well
    [I was Bright, Friendly and Talked ALOT I have adhd on top of it lol]

    Now my family was always low on money my mom got me what she could but i still ended up playing alot of shit games [one of the reasons i like AVGN so much of course] But my mind just got more and more hungry for games so I started Trading which i fell in Love with in a Sense [Screw Renting lol]

    Now fast foward to my 7th birthday I got a nintendo 64 from my dad. I still love the system But now looking back i feel kinda bad I didnt get a SNES next and get to experience that [friends had one] but now I have one too

    So the next year on my 8th Birthday I started going out for work stuff like Lawn Mowing and a Paper Route.
    The money i earned actually got me started on collecting games and thats when we first got Internet [I use it alot before hand at school]

    So I built up a big collection by the time I was 12. But some one broke in one day and stole all the good stuff all I pretty much have left now from those days is my N64 [They Stole a atari 5200, genesis, original gameboy and my 3 NES systems]

    So after reading for years and years about rare games and collecting I am ready to get back into it again.

    So here I am. Nice to Meet you all and to be Associated with such a Awesome Collective of People

    My name is Colin, and I've been gaming since the mid 80s when I got an Amstrad CPC 664. I did a lot of spectrum gaming back then as well, and I still play both amstrad and Speccy emulators fairly frequently. Favourite games from back then include Starquake, Sorcery+, Knightlore and 3d Starstrike. The first and second consoles largely passed me by - just the age I was I think, but I got back into PC gaming in 1998 with Tie Fighter and Freespace 2.

    Now I'm an xbox gamer. Currently playing MW2 and Red Dead Redemption. Nice to be here.

    Colinoid.

    Hey. I'm Stacey, I'm 18 years old and I'm from Wales. I found this forum when I googled horror games for the Sega Megadrive and I found a thread on this forum.

    I have a lot of games I like so I won't list them all but I'll list the ones I play the most they are: Megaman, Pokémon, Resident Evil, Sonic the Hedgehog and the Mario series. I haven't started collecting games for systems yet, my lack of a job means I'm broke most of the time. xD

    I'm a college student studying childcare even though I want to work in the video games industry. =\ Completing this course will make getting a job a little easier, I have plenty of time to go to university. xD

    I got into video gaming when I was about 4 years old when my grandfather bought me a snes, I've been playing games since then.

    So, that's me. =)

    Hey Pete from Minnesota.

    I've been gaming most of my life (34 years).

    I started with a 2600 as a kid and moved up to a C64, then an NES, then a Genesis/Sega CD and a Game Gear....Girls.....Nintendo 64...then more girls...Then a Dreamcast...Marriage, Kids....Xbox....Then Xbox360.

    I remember Buying a Sega CD the day it came out and I had saved my money all summer long, It seemed so awesome at the time.

    Now, I'd like to revive those memories and am trying to get back all those games and sytems I sold at garage sale for next to nothing. Man, those prices have gone up!

    Now I have back a NES, Genesis, Game Gear, SNES (never had one before), Xbox and Xbox 360. I'd love a Sega CD now, but I have to take on this collection slowly....So the Mrs. doesn't get too worried about finances.

    Hey all, I'm Tim from Charlotte, NC.

    I started collecting about 2 years ago or so. I collect what I feel like at any given time. I probably found this site by searching for something and going off on a tangent. I've been browsing the forums and using the guide for a couple months now. I figured I would make an account because I'll probably have something to say soon or later.

    Yes, it is true.

    OK, not that self centered.

    Just wanted to say I think this site is AWESOME. Recently began collecting games after my friend got me a copy of FF7 black label for PS1...Part of my collection now incloudes every FF, 1-13, including tactics, all black label.

    My day job is working for as an Editor for an online news site in Chicago.

    Something interesting: two of my uncles owned a video store and they would rent NES and, eventually, SNES games. My cousin and I were pretty spoiled with games as a result. However, I've played my share of crap that's covered on AVGN.

    Yea, really into collecting RPGs for PS1, NES and SNES. Some PS2. And one more thing, I'm usually alone on this one, but I think Fire Emblem for Cube and Wii is the BEST STRATEGY RPG ever!

    Hey guys, from Canada here, just recently starting collecting for SNES. I also game on the 360, PSP, PC, and GP2X Wiz. I've got a GBC, but just Pokemon Gold, and I barely use it. I've got around 25 360 games, 15 SNES games, and a few PSP games.
    The Wiz is cool as it's got all the emulators I need and it's fairly small and portable. I also like how I can transfer my X-Com save from the PC to the build on the Wiz and play it on the go. Neat little unit.
    Some of my favourite games are Fallout 3 (360), Skate 3 (360), Civ series (PC), X-Com (PC), NetHack (PC), FF3 (SNES), Seiken Densetsu 3 (SNES), Super Metroid/Prime series (SNES/GC), Super Mario World/Allstars (SNES), and Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past (SNES).
    I plan to keep my SNES for as long as I can, and want to build a complete collection someday.. have already purchased some repro's as well.

    New here. Been lurking since early 2008, seriously. Figured it was about time to try to contribute.
    I'm into collecting consoles mostly (58 +/- according to my excel spreadsheet), but have aquired quite a few games as well.

    I started with an Intellivision, back when they were new (remember going to Kmart to pick it out). Still have that unit and all the games I had growing up. I took a console hiatus and went to PC gaming, which was WAY expensive back in the double 3dfx days. Got out of the PC biz and back into consoles which is where I am now.

    Hi - I'm Rich - my parents bought me the Sears Tele-Sys game system when it came out. Several years later, they tossed it... so, I started re-collecting in the 90's - have so many double we're now offering them...

    Also collect 2600, 5200, 7800, Intellivision and Coleco...
