    Default Hello EveryOne

    My name is Ehsan and I'm 28. I now live in karaj, Iran

    I have been playing video games for more than twenty years now and have collected a very handsome number of consoles and games over the years. My favourite console of all time is psx and I'm very interested in jrpg games and whatever Ico Team makes.

    Damn I think I'm really addicted to games. I remember breaking up with my girlfriend just because of it. She insisted that I didn't spend enough time with her never payed attention to what she said blah blah blah

    She could never understand that I WAS a very busy man. I'm a part time student I work a job and OF COURSE I play video games I do NOT have the luxury to spend my precious time with her. When she finally left me I was very sad but at least kept my hobby and joy. That's a victory

    Hey everyone!

    My name is Ben. As of recently I've begun to go by the name 'Vidmusc' on the internet. I've been looking for a pretty long time, and I feel like this might be the one I'm looking for. I'm from the United States. Ohio to be exact. I haven't moved out of Ohio, and plan to change that eventually. I found the forums through the Retron 5 review thread being linked on Hyperkin. I started reading through the forum a bit, and it seemed like a pretty interesting forum. When it comes to my favorite games I really don't know where to start with that. If I had to choose an absolute favorite it would be Kingdom Hearts II. There's just something about that game that I absolutely love. I currently collect for GameCube, Wii, Xbox, Xbox 360, Dreamcast, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PSP. I hope to add DS, 3DS, N64, NES, SNES, Genesis, SCD, and the Saturn eventaully, along with Wii U and PS4. I started collecting around 2010 or so, after I discovered YouTube channels such as PeteDorr. The concept interested me greatly, and I decided I would invest in game collecting as that's what I love. I also recently started collecting rock / heavy metal CDs (bands I enjoy), and soon hope to continue my anime / manga / comic collection. Outside of the internet I'm still attending high school. I'm a junior, and well... Me and school don't get along very well. Just recently I got my first job at Walgreens, in which I work checkout. And yeah. That's about it. Hope to enjoy my stay here!

    - Who you are

    I'm Merc AKA Jeff, I like others ran into hard times and had to sell my collection, I kept some of the more sentimental stuff like my Dreamcast, but I'm back to collecting again, I've picked up where I left off with DC games and now working on PS2 games!

    - Where you live

    I was born just outside of Boston and contracted wanderlust at a young age, by 17 I was signing my name on the line and shipping off to boot camp, that was 26 years ago. I moved to the Western Slope of the Rockies in Colorado in 2002 and have been here ever since!

    - How you found the forums

    I am subscribed to Pete Dorr's Youtube channel and he made mention of this site a few times, at first I thought he was talking about a publication that lists games and prices and such, but here I am!

    - What your favorite games are

    My favorite game now is Rock Band 3, I'm a drummer in real life and got my son Guitar Hero 2 for his birthday, I had no intention of ever playing a fake plastic guitar game but playing it with my son got me hooked and I found myself at Best Buy on Rock Band launch day shelling out for the full band bundle and haven't looked back since! I've also recently finished my PS2 Guncon collection with the exception of Time Crisis 2 and really love the old arcade shooters! I am also fond of the fishing controller and Sega Fishing games for DC!

    - What systems you collect for

    I collect for everything but focusing on DC and PS2 right now!

    - What you do in "real life"

    After I was discharged I got into construction and built houses for almost 24 years until a catastrophic leg injury forced me to apply for VA benefits just to have them tell me I got PTSD and need to talk to somebody, turned out they were right, explains a lot of my erratic behavior and nightmares. I'm also a drummer, left the last band I was in last February because I got into it with the keyboardist, that's another thread though!

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

    My ancestors on my fathers side were all pirates, Privateers is the actual term!

    Hey there guys, I'm recently new here in the forums. Here is a bit of info about myself:

    Who you are
    My nickname is Crest, that's all. I can't remember how I ended up with that nickname. I am currently around my early 20s, trying to get a college degree that will land me a well-paying job to support my needs (as well as increasing my gaming collection without going in debt).

    Where you live
    In good ol' Los Angeles.

    How you found the forums
    I randomly found the forums while searching for "unlicensed" Famicom, SNES, and Mega Drive/Genesis games. That is when I found out about this website (about a year ago), but I barely opened my account around a month ago after navigating through the website.

    What your favorite games are
    There's too many to choose from, but here are some of my favorites: Super Mario Bros. 3, the classic Sonic games, Final Fight, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, and some of the Mega Man games. When I don't play retro games, I'm mostly playing either Grand Theft Auto or some overrated game like Call of Duty at a friend's house (since those are the only "appealing" games they have when I visit them)

    What systems you collect for
    The only gaming systems I'm collecting for at the moment are the Sega Saturn, Game Gear, Playstation 1 and 2. I'm starting to collect again for the Dreamcast and the Game Boy Advance as well. My main collecting system, however, is the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis. Although I remember playing the system with my cousins back in the day and even asking my parents for one, I didn't purchase one until two years ago. I ended up buying a Japanese Mega Drive 2 (w/Puyo Puyo) instead and ever since, I have not regretted on buying it. Most comes from the Japanese MD library, mostly because of the more appealing look of the boxes (it makes them look nice when they are stacked on display) , various game exclusives that never came out of Japan (or at least never released on Genesis format), rarity, and sometimes, different content (compare the Japanese Bare Knuckle 3 or Dynamite Headdy to their American versions). There is just something unique about the Japanese MD that I can't really explain why. I'm planning to collect for the SNES and PSP when I have a chance.

    What you do in "real life"
    Besides collecting retro games, most of my time is dedicated on college. For the next three months, I have to restrict myself from games due to heavy loads of homework. Outside of that, I would also spend time with friends, either having a small party, hanging around at a park, or walking around the streets of Hollywood or Downtown. I am also trying to raise funds on either buying new parts for my car or buying another, more gas efficient one.

    Anybody wants to know more about me, feel free to message. Hope to be more in communication!

    Default Final Fantasy Set !

    Hello everyone !

    My name is Ludovic and I live in Quebec, Canada !
    I'm french, so I apologize for my bad english ^^

    Just like you, I'm a gamer and I love to collect video games !
    As far as i remember, I always collect special package, special or collector edition.

    But two years ago, I decided to focus on my favorite saga : Final Fantasy !
    Just to see what I can achieve when I concentrate my effort.

    In this adventure, I discovered the beautiful world of collectors, and subscribe to french forum like edition limited.net.
    But I live in Canada, so it's a a little to far...

    So I ask for a major forum on North america, and a member tell me about you !

    And then I'm here, ready to discover your treasure and share mine !

    See ya on a topic !

    I've been collecting games for only about a year now, but I've been a gamer most of my life. I own over 400 games right now, and I collect for 20 different systems:

    Atari 2600, Colecovision, NES, Sega Master System, Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast, Game Gear, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Advance, N64, SNES, Xbox, Xbox 360, PS1, PS2, PSP, Gamecube, Wii, and DS.

    My largest collection is for the NES, my fav console, and the first console I ever played as a kid. I was 5 and my uncle owned one back in 1991, first game I played was Super Mario Bros. Obviously. I have over 100 NES games, and managed to get them all for less then $20 each.

    I live in Connecticut, and I got into collecting about a year ago when watching the Angry Video Game Nerd videos. Just kinda inspired me. I already had a start with my original Genesis and NES, with a buncha games, a stack of PS1 games I just never got rid of, and my 360. I prefer to collect retro games then new ones, but I love new games, too. Also, new games will one day be retro.

    Like the forum, I kinda wanted to find something like this, but all the ones I've found were all European, so this is cool. I get most of my games at retro game shops, theres a bunch in CT, and thrift shops. I try to steer clear of Amazon or Ebay if I can, but if theres something I simply can't find anywhere I will grab it online. Plus, who wants to pay for shipping and hafta wait??? That's no fun!

    As for favorite games, that always changes, but for years my favorite game of alltime was always Metal Gear Solid, on PS1. It was the first game I ever actually beat, on my original grey Playstation. Back then it wasn't called "PS1" cuz there was no PS2. I just remember being blown away by it. The 2nd and 3rd are great also.

    I also love platformers. I love Megaman, the 2D Sonics, Kirby, most action games, puzzle games, I love artsy games like Catherine or Shadow of the Colossus, Katamari obviously, just about anything weird. I love collecting weird, bizarre retro games like Space Shuttle Project on NES. Why that game was made, I don't know. But it's hilarious and awesome. I've been warming up to RPG's, for years I never had the patience for turn-based battles, I had some real ADD as a kid, but Final Fantasy 13 is turning me on quite a bit, and Phantasy Star Online on Dreamcast was also excellent. I also love shooters like Lifeforce and Gradius, so much stuff.
