    Hiya.Good to be here on the forums. Lesse, I'm a native Texan who just recently moved to Florida. My favorite console of all time is the SNES, so my interest is always piqued just a little more when it comes to SNES games. I am open-minded though, and I'm always looking at many different consoles, like Playstation, NES, Genesis, PS2... I've even been considering getting a Nuon.

    Anyway, yup.

    Hullo. My names Chris. I'm 16 and live in the UK. I;ve been gaming for about 8 years, but didn't really see the point of keeping the boxes of games back then (wish I had though...). I found this place when I was looking for some pictures of a boxed SNES, and was blown away when I found the pictures of collectors rooms... I had no idea people collected games to such an extent! I'm not really a "hardcore" collector, as I don't really have enough money (or storage space in my room, for that matter) to buy loads of games. I've started a little Zelda collection, which might lead into others when I get a stable amount of income.

    Hello,

    Just wanted to say (for those of use who are not ashamed) I have shed loads of games, more than I can play and still I want more. There is always a japanese oddball shooter that misses the popular press' radar.

    Being a kid is cool. Being an adult with money and the mind of a kid is cooler. Like an Atari-sponsored version of the Tom Hanks film "big".

    1000+ games and counting (well trying to when I get a minute).

    Most prized posession...... Ikaruga (dreamcast) because somebody long and hard enough to buy it me from ebay.

    Favourite game (so far).... Super Mario 64. It never ages (give it a go).

    Most wanted item..... Resident Evil 4 (gamespot video review made my hair stand up)

    I'm Paul, I'm 29 and I live in the South West of England. I was directed to this forum partly by my love of all things electronic, my fondness of video games,of both new and retro variety, and most of all from an American friend on another forum, who posts on here.

    I sometimes collect games for the PC, but mostly for my PS2. My current favourites are GTA San Andreas and Manhunt. I started collecting about three years ago after playing the first GTA3 game on the PS2 at a friends house. I was impressed by the gameplay, and went out the next day to get myself a PS2.

    My first games console was an Atari "Grandstand", endorsed by the permed-haired England football legend, Kevin Keegan. This was about 1982, and I satill have it in mint condition and boxed. I am unfortunately missing the manual. Along the road I have also had a Nintendo Gameboy, Nintendo 8-bit and the SuperNintendo 16-bit consoles and a PS1.

    I look forward to joining in lively discussions with you all.

    Hi,my name's Matthieu, I'm 20 and I live in Quebec, Canada. My native language is french. I found the place when I was looking for a good rarity guide on the web. I bookmarked it and forgot about it until recently. I grew up with the nes and snes so they are my main focus in collection. I don't have much cash and there is a lack of good fleamarket here so I collect when I can, which is not enough for me, hehe. I currently own a GameCube for my current gen console I also have a Dreamcast. I guess I can be called a Nintendo fanboy, but I Like games which ever platform it's on. My best game ever is Chrono Trigger. Well I think I've said enough. Thanks for reading my first post

    Well I should probably sign the guestbook here, now, considering I've been stumbling around this party for a little while and missed this book at the front door...
    My name is Mike, I was 8 when we got the Atari 2600 the first christmas it came out. I've been a vidiot ever since- I've been collecting more seriously since 92. My main interest is everything NINTENDO- but I also have a love for the little blue hedgehog. Anything videogame interests me.
    I found the site when a friend ("videogame collector" on the first page of the original game rooms page) directed me here. I been lurking around ever since.
    I reside in the "Great White North" eh. In my mind it is "the mushroom kingdom" where Mario music plays ALL the time.
    I am involved in the videogame industry- some of my customers refer to me as their "dealer"..... like videogames are addictive... well they're not illegal!
    That is my hobby work- I also have a regular 8-5 job that really puts a damper on my game play time. Damn work!
    I have my collection pics posted and my collection on record here- please feel free to PM me with any questions!!
    See you around!

    I feel a short introduction is in order.

    I'm 27, been a gamer since Game & Watch days, moved on to the VIC20, C64, Amiga and at the same time I played a hell of a lot of NES at a friend's house. During those NES days my love for Nintendo was established and it's been a life-long love affair, although with age my fanatism has mellowed out somewhat. Anything japanese and good is on top of my list nowadays.

    Hello, gamers. I'm 26, living in Wash state. I own a PS2, multiple NES's, Dreamcast, DS and a 2600. Off the top of my head Id say I own about 80 games. My collection isn't very large but I enjoy it like crazy. This is an awesome site and I'm glad to be here.

    Hello there, folks. I'm Endiga.

    I'm 19, and I live in Alabama. Actually came across Digitpress either through searching for 'rarity lists' or 'game collections', and I've been stuck on the forums since! Although I adored arcade games as a young lad and wanted an NES more than anything, my gaming days actually began on Christmas 1993 with a Genesis and a copy of Sonic 2.

    Since then, I've been both a Sega fanboy and a Sonic fanboy, and I still like to collect the Sonic games to this day, no matter how crappy they might be. I also have a passing admiration for SHMUPs, a fondness for Treasure titles (be it Gunstar Heroes, Dynamite Headdy, or Guardian Heroes), and a fine love for horror games. Silent Hill remains my favorite horror series of all time, but I also have a fine love for Clock Tower, the original Alone in the Dark, the original Resident Evil, and Siren.

    As I've stated, I started out as a Sega fanboy, so I like to pick up games for the Genesis, Saturn, and Dreamcast (and, eventually, Game Gear). I do pick up PS/PS2 titles every now and then, as there are solid titles on the Sony consoles.

    There are other notes, such as how I amassed 60 PC games or so before diving back into console gaming after a long break, or how I do crappy jobs for a living, but I believe that will do for now. Good to meet all of you!

    Hi there, my actual name is Kieran. Iím 19 and live in the United Kingdom. I suppose I got into retro gaming over three years ago, but before that I had my brother Megadrive (my first console), but about 2 years ago I became a big fan of Sonic the hedgehog and focused on collecting him instead. I was never that much good at games but I loved to collect them, but I found that Sonic was a game I could master, and for some reason the mere fact itís a Sonic game Iím playing persuades me to perceiver, whereas in another game I would just quit.

    Anyway Iíve always keep my interest in retro gaming, but for me itís not so much the games that interested me, but the atmosphere: design perceptions, marketing etc, of the individual gaming eras. I come here because I want to give my Sonic obsession a rest (I have over 63 Sonic games) and learn more about the individual systems.

    I prefer collecting the gaming systems, itís excitable owning a new system, at leased I know thereís no way I can fail by having one, like I normally would in a game. I donít have a large collection of consoles, but I think itís enough. The majority of the consoles I chose too buy is dictated by what Sonic games are available, thatís why most are SEGA consoles.

    Nintendo 64
    Gamecube
    Gameboy Advance
    Gameboy Player
    SEGA Saturn
    Dreamcast
    Gamegear
    Neo Geo Pocket Colour
    SEGA Multi-Mega
    SEGA 32X

    Hello, I guess I'm the newest n00b as of right now.

    My name's Bill, I'm 33, married, two kids, and started gaming over 25 years ago when my parents bought my first Atari ( a Heavy Sixer, I have learned).

    The systems I currently have hooked up are Gamecube, Xbox, Playstation 2, N64, Dreamcast, and a Jaguar w/CD. I also keep a Virtual Boy accessible. My relatively recent collecting focus has been the Jag and the VB, as it's relatively easy (if not terribly inexpensive) to build complete collections.

    For the poster above, I'm also in northern Illinois (Zion).

    Here is my current setup:

    I'm Tony, currently living in Canada. I am a university student studying computing science. I think I found the forums through Google, but I'm not quite sure anymore.

    I buy games for the Dreamcast and the PS2, but I only own a DC. I steal my GF's PS2 to play my PS2 games

    I've been playing games ever since I got my 486DX2/66 way back when. I've been primarily a PC gamer until April 2004 when I bought my Japanese Dreamcast to play Shenmue and Virtual On. I had just finished buying all seven seasons of Star Trek: The Next Generation on DVD and I thought that the DC would be just a small, one-time investment that I could afford even after such a large purchase.

    I was very wrong -- after seeing some DC games going for so little money I started reading reviews, which brought my attention to more and more games, old and new, for all the consoles I've missed out on. I started buying and now it seems that there's always something else I want to get!

    Hello, my name is Brian and I'm hobby addict. (all other members): Hi, Brian!


    It seems like I've had billions of hobbies in my life but this is the one I keep coming back to that holds my attention.

    I live in the isolated city of Wichita in the most laughable state of the union Kansas .

    I am currently in the process of collecting all rare NES games (gool\d luck, right.) This particular addiction probably stems from my childhood. I asked my parents to buy me a NES when it first came out. Five frickin years later when SNES was about to debut I got a crappy outdated NES and one crappy game. My video game talents were never nurtured by my parents who claimed I needed to focus on more important things like math and science.

    Anyway, hope I can figure out some of the more advanced features here. Thanks to everyone for yor warm welcome, so warm that I have to ask - do you wanna make out?

    Mario couldn't afford his malpractice insurance anymore. So, now I'll be throwing multi colored pills at you and overseeing your liver transplant.

    Currently playing Metal Gear for NES.
