I am a teacher of English as a second language, so I don't have that much money to begin with!

    I have a modest Youtube channel that has some retro stuff (like interviews!) on it, too, and I host it with my wife. Its name is Baixa DefiniÁ„o, which translates to Low Definition, reflecting the retrogames and our own way of dealing with life and defining ourselves.
    What region games do you collect? And what region games are sold in Brazil to begin with?

    The games we get are all imported from the US. Hence the expensive prices.

    I am guessing the U.S. because it's closer than Europe or Japan? (PAL and NTSC-J)

    Default Old old gamer. Downsizing bigtime.

    I started off back in the day with the Odyssey 2, ZX-81 (built from a kit with my Dad) & the TI-99/4A. I did a lot of programming for my Mom. She was a teacher and embraced computers in the classroom.

    As a young adult, I was heavily into the Jaguar & Lynx, and started getting into the 2600. I also enjoyed some gaming on the Apple II and Mac (pre-PowerPC platforms).

    In the 1990s, I spent as much time hunting at flea markets and thrift stores as I did playing games. There was nothing like the thrill of finding something rare, or something previously unlisted (in the DP Guide).

    The only gaming shows I’ve been to are Videotopia and Philly Classic. Two of my favorite places to shop at back in the day were Toad Computers (south of Baltimore) for new Atari stuff and the Classic Connection (Howell, NJ) for classic gaming in general.

    I should mention that I've been away from most gaming for 17 years or so. Recently, I’ve been going through boxes that have been taped up for as long. I have way more stuff than I could ever use and I'm paring down. I'm quite surprised at what things are worth these days. I've been selling on ebay of course. Ebay is a different animal these days as well and not for the better really.

    My goal is to get my collection down to a manageable size that I can enjoy. For now, I'll probably take advantage of the buying and selling forum, and then perhaps later contribute more to other areas of the forum. That's just where I'm at in life.

    Even though I may post for selling, I'd prefer to handle transactional information by pm one on one rather than in the open forum. I like to enjoy a little privacy.

    Well, that's about it. I've probably forgotten plenty of things (comes with being old), but this is a pretty long post already.

    Heh - you sound like a youngster to me - all a matter of perspective though - although it sounds like I am a bit older than you I didn't get into videogames until 1985 (discounting the ubiquitous pong era). I will leave you my walker in my will whenever I check out..................

    When I come home from a long day in Hell, there's nothing I'd rather reach for than a fire-brewed bottle of Styx Beer. Made from the filthiest waters from our own River Styx. Styx Beer is a third more toxic than any other regular beer. The worst beer - the filthiest beer - the deadliest beer. It's Styx Beer!

    Default It's been a while and I am happy to be back

    Hello everyone, I think it's been like 10 years since I've posted on this site. One of my favorite places to hang out... but because of life, and responsibilities, I've been away too long. It's hard because at this stage in my life I don't have 1-3 hours at a time to play, so I turned to mobile gaming.

    Unfortunately, mobile games have evolved into two pathways and sometimes both: either completely free with ads every round/30 seconds/levels or in-app purchases. The ladder is worse because the game never ends. Just new characters, etc so that you either play and go DREADFULLY slow or pay and get the best items/characters. Iím reaching a place where I hate it all, and miss the times when we paid $60 and had a full, complete and harassment free game. I have been playing this Star Wars game and $60 is really meaningless, it just gives you stepping stones to new characters (not fully ready ones), so it doesnít really advance the game since there is no end.

    So I am happy and sad to come back to my nostalgic favorites. Happy because it was such a fun era, and sad because it seems that the trend is going to ads/pay per play type of games so I'll never experience the fun and joy of new games.

    Sorry for the rant, but I am happy to once again join the community!
