    Hello all, throwing my hat into the ring here!

    I found this site through several different Google searches, and collecting retro gaming gear is always something I've thought about doing if finances allowed it. I was raised on the NES, DOS and N64 back in the day. I thought I'd sign up.

    Good to meet you all!

    Hi, everyone.

    I'm from Centralia, Washington. However, that will be changing in a week or so.

    I mainly collect Nintendo stuff and Sony stuff, although I have a pretty wide variety.

    I don't really remember how I found DP, as I've lurked here for a few years off and on. I really thought I had an account, but I guess I didn't. I may have seen an ad at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo, or just did a search on Google. I really don't know why it's taken me this long to attempt activity.

    My favorite games would be the Zelda series and Final Fantasy's main series. I also enjoy some of the newer Fallout games quiet a bit.

    Hi
    I live in Tijuana, Mexico
    I've played videogames since the age of two, my uncle had a NES and I could spend all day long jumping around and swinging my controller to make Mario jump higher (back in the day they laughed, but, who would have thought that that would make Mario jump higher 20 years later hugh?).
    Well, I started collecting like 5 years ago, it all started when I found a copy of Vanguard for the Atari 2600 in the box, with original shrinkwrap, at a flea market, it was buried in a box of old cables, and I got it for a dollar. That's when i thought, "well, if this has survived, What else has?" and I've had digged in every box ever since.

    I don't collect for a console in particular, I love all videogames.

    See you around.

    Hi everyone my real name is Jamie. Im from Newfoundland Canada and just like you probably I found this place through Google. My all time Favorite game would have to be the Bioshock series, cant wait for Bioshock Infinite. I have only been collecting now for 2 months I am trying to rebirth my obsession by RE-Collecting all the things I had from before and more. The systems Im re-collecting for are PS1,PS2 NES,SNES,N64,Gamecube etc all the main ones..Aside from collecting my job is in Seismic Exploration

    Here is a link to my most recent Game Room tour from a few days ago..

    I am new to youtube and I dont have very many subscribers as of yet so all the help would be greatly apreciated..I plan on doing updates of unboxings of complete NES games and others.. I want to go the whole way with having a youtube channel so if you want to subscribe I would be greatful of that

    What's up everybody. I'm Bil. I was refereed here by Shadow Kisuragi over on RF Generation where I spend most of my time.

    I've been collecting for about 6 months and I think I have a pretty respectable little gathering of games. I am always picking up new stuff and I get lots of doubles so if you like trading games, we're gonna get along just fine.

    Hi everyone, my name is Dane and I am from Australia. I collect for Megadrive / Genesis only as it is my favourite system. I thought it's about time I come across to here as I am a member of many other gaming forums. My collection can be seen in my signature.

    Started by reliving my childhood picking up an Atari 2600 with some games at a flea market turned into a obession of a wall of consoles. As of now we have around 25 systems and growing.

    We are blest to live a walking distance from the Digital Press Store so getting games for these sytems are easy to come by.

    Hey everybody, I've been lurking here for a while and registered some time ago, but am only now actually getting around to posting. So hi!

    I'm from southern Ohio, where I work at a game store specializing in used and retro games. I myself am a collector of retro hardware and software as well, though I still keep up with current trends in gaming.

    Default Hi Everybody!

    Hello to all, my name is Anthony and I'm from Savannah Georgia.
    I am a Father and longtime gamer. I have lived here in Savannah for two years and haven't met many people around here that are into classic gaming.
    I would really like to meet up with people in my area and discuss/play/hunt for retro games. Plus, meet some new friends online who have the love for the classics that I do.

    Hey everybody...

    New here, apparently this is the thing to do.

    I'm a lifetime gamer. My SNES and N64 were stolen by construction workers when I was 15 and I just bought new (alright, old) ones at a classic video games store this weekend so I'm back to navigating the classics after years of emulating... Glad to be here!

    Brian here. Old enough to remember 2600 games being sold new... Moved to SC about 4 years ago from RI. Not much in the way of gaming going on here. We had a Play-n-Trade *gag* about 35 miles from here, but it's gone now, and I think we're all better off. There is http://lyonsarcade.com/, but that's a 3 hour ride. I collect for ANYTHING that's not CD based pretty much (save for DreamCast), but particularly have a soft spot for SuperNES. Really enjoy odd systems like my Mattel Aquarius. Would really love to open a Flynn's Arcade replica or even a cool store like yours at some point! Found the site when looking for help on how much to spend for a collection of NES games I bought. Without your rarity guide for assistance, I'd probably have a huge collection of garbage that I paid too much for! Thanks!
    Life is too short to play crappy games, but it won't stop me from collecting all of them!

    Default Introduction

    Hello, My name is Todd, and I am from Gainesville, Georgia. I am going to college to get a degree in computer science. I am 22 years old. I love classic video games, and I play them all the time on my computer, and I own a Playstation 3, 2, NES, and Wii. I love games modern or classic, but I always remember if it was not for the classics, we would not have the modern games. I love classic games alot because the music they had. My favorite game on the NES is Super Mario 3, on the Wii it is Super Mario Galaxy, My favorite game on PS3 is God Of War 3, on the PS2 it is GTA Vice City, and for the original Playstation it is Resident Evil 3. I love video games, music, reading the bible, going to church, fishing, and hanging out with family and friends. If you ever want to hit me up for a classic video game or current video game discussion hit me up we can chat.

    Hi- obelisksound, here. Pinball and video games since the 70s. 78 was my first encounter with a Video Game, Space Invaders on the pier down in LA.

    I grew up (ha), in Northern California and have become so disconnected from so much of "real life", its silly, but i know my place is behind a screen.

    I am a former child actor, singer, janitor, computer specialist, and customer service person. I now am a consultant and assistant part time at the max (yay economy), i write and have a few other tricks up my sleeves.

    Anyways, I miss when Sunnyvale and the Silicon Valley used to be the Detroit of Video Games and Computer Stuff.

    pleasent to meet you,

    Take Care,
    Best Wishes
