    Hey fellow gamers. My name is Ben McCracken I go by Mog the Destroyer 'cause I like those cute little moogles from the FF games. I stumbled across Digital Press by accident I picked up a copy of EGM, the one with Gollum on the cover I believe, and saw the coverage of CGE and all the rare games. Me loving the NES so much and was already collecting for it checked out the site and fell in love. I am a county worker for Santa Clara, happily married to a supportive wife who loves the idea of "cheap" gifts for special occasions. Thats about it I plan on being here and supporting Digital Press for as long as humanly possible. Game On!!

    - Room Server~Hard Rock Hotel
    - I grew up on the classics, and kinda took them for granted. Now that I realize how they were the pioneers of the gaming world, I show a greater appreciation for the revolutionary games; such as Goldeneye(being the first console multi-player FPS) and Super Mario 64(which surpassed other '3-d' games with fluent movement and fully 3-dimensional world).

    Hi I'm Ed Wood and yes I've heard all the jokes about Plan 9 *chuckles* in fact I actually quite like the move for the cheesyness.

    I'm still quite new to the collectors things here I'm mostly after Gamegear and Lynx stuff.

    I'm in England down in the Wells area (Shepton Mallet for those who know the area).

    Hello World.

    My name is Bryan and I hail from Tampa, Florida in the good ole' USA.

    I love video games of all shapes, colors sizes, and years. I'm mainly a calssic gamer. Most of my favorites predate '95. That may not qualify as "classic" to some of you...

    Some of my favorites are the original Legend of Zelda, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, and Soul Blazer.

    Hey there! The name's Samantha, or Sam for short. "Hey you" works, too. Soon to be 20 years.

    I'm hail from western Nevada, where the only thing interesting is actually having access to the Internet. Heh. I stumbled onto DigitalPress.com just randomly. Can't really remember what I was doing. That was two hours ago. Oye.

    My favorite games include: Guilty Gear X2, Secret of Mana, Gunstar Heroes, Final Fantasy VI, Katamari Damacy, and EarthBound.

    I like all sorts of games, but generally rpgs, 2D fighting, racing, and puzzle games are my bag.

    As far as my collecting habits, I'm on a quest to own every console RPG. So far, my main systems I own RPGs for would be GBA, PS2, PS1, and SNES. It's slow going, considering my limited funds. I'll probably get around to updating my very old game collection profile in a week or something like that. Busy with work and all.

    Real life consists of work for me. It isn't half bad, though, because I'm 2nd in command at a game store. I play approximately 30% of the games I buy, and I maintain a long-distance relation with my squeeze. It's exhausing. I'm also looking into taking night classes at our local community college.

    Started gaming back when I was 2. I played with my old man on his Intellivision. Then the NES came along, and I suppose that hooked me. And I just started to seriously collect in the last year. The sick thing is that I'm looking for all of the RPGs I sold maybe 2 years ago. They're all really expensive now, too. *sigh* Whoever said, "Ignorance is bliss" ought to be shot. Ignorance bites you in the rear later. ¬ ¬'

    Anyways, nice to meet you all!!

    I've just joined, and this seems the most fitting thread to tag onto first

    Who am I? - I'm Jon. Notice the lack of "h". I hate it when people automatically assume the "h". Pet hate.

    Where do I live? - UK, south. As far south as you can go, and to the east. South-east. Yes.

    How did I find this forum? - A friend of mine found Nescapades which inspired me to find more wonderful game rooms. Which took me here, thankfully!

    What are my favourite games? - Gosh, that's a wee bit hard for my first post. Something Sonic and something Mario. That'll do, no?

    What systems do I collect for? - PC, N64, SNES, PS2 (and I'm looking in the long-term to pick up some PS1 games), Xbox and GameCube.

    What do I do in real-life? - I work for Alpine Components. Just starting there. And in September, I'm going to Uni - or that is the plan, anyway. I've backed out the last few years - my colleciton cannot continue to grow without appropriate funding!

    Anything else of interest? - Not really. Erm, these forums, and the Room Of Doom pages, inspired me to remodel my room this week. I took off the six sliding doors that hid my shelving before moving and reorganizing everything. It looks superb. Mess is not an option!

    I hope to contribute to these forums like many have done so already. I just wish I found you guys sooner!

    ...After realising I have been on here for a little over a year and did not intruduse my self, I will now do so!

    I am PentiumMMX, you can call me "Fred the Spanyard" if you want, I don't feel like saying where I live.

    I discovered the fourms when I was looking for a decent Old-Skool Gaming fourm that was not loaded with "Nintendo 64 suck0rxxx! NES pwns!!11!11!", "ColecoVision rock0rz! I wanna' overclock it and play Halo!", and "GRRR! Nintendo Fanboy SMASH!"

    I got into gaming when I got an N64, and the first system I played was an Atari 2600. I started collecting in 2003, starting with NES, Game Boy, and N64.

    A few of my favorate games are "Castlevania: Symphony of the Night", "Mega Man 5", "Super Mario 64", "Mega Man X4", "Final Fantasy 7", "Ninja Gaiden", and "Zelda: Link's Awakening".

    Outside of playing games, I enjoy watching anime and cartoons ("Xaolin Shodown" and "Mega Man: NT Warrior" are the best), and wacking stiff with a stick while shouting "TWO-MAGIC!".

    I've been coming here for a while, but just now decided to post.


    -Who you are -Dustin
    - Where you live- In Salem, Oregon. Nice enough city, but not enough game stores
    - How you found the forums -came across it as I searched for a Dreamcast checklist
    - What your favorite games are Shining Force, Doom 1/2, Resident Evil, Silent Hill 2, Stranger's Wrath
    - What systems you collect for - Currently collecting for X-box and finishing up the Dreamcast. Used to have an almost complete N64 and halfway complete PSOne collection, but somebody robbed my house and took them all, it's too depressing to go buy them all again at the moment.
    - What you do in "real life" -stock shelves at Wal-Mart

    I am an old school collector from Arizona who has been out of the hobby for a while. I used to be very active back in the early-mid '90's on #RGVC. You know what I mean..can't drive anywhere without hitting the thrift stores on the way. Once you get there you are able to walk in and with just a glance at the shelf know whether anyone else has been there or new stuff has been added. "My name is Pam and I was a collecting addict." Yes, I even think I failed a course or two as a result of the need to hit the Value Village on the other side of town every Wednesday afternoon. You can Google my old email pammyk@primenet.com on Google groups to verify my identity.

    It is now one child and one divorce later and I have dusted off my collection and am going to be selling it all. As much as I hate to do this (hmm..first born vs. Cubicolor) I don't think keeping it in storage is proper and need to pass on the joy.

    I am trying to catalog as I go since I have multiple systems and lots of boxes of hardware, games, etc. I have listed my current auctions in the marketplace forum and if anyone wants to keep tabs on what I have found in the depths of the storage shed thus far I have current lists online at http://www.geocities.com/pammyk600/ which will be updated frequently.

    - Where you live: Gilbert, AZ
    - How you found the forums: no brainer there
    - What your favorite games are: 2600 Adventure and Stampede, coin-op Amidar
    - What systems you collect for: 2600 is the main love but all the other systems are hard to pass up on in the wild.
    - What you do in "real life": former computer geek turned mom.

    Happy Gaming!
    Pam
