    Hello. I'm a collector that just turned 21. Live in northern VA. Sold my collection in college and now I'm trying to recreate it piece by piece. I'd say the best piece currently in my collection is probably Guardian Heroes for Saturn...but...I'm just getting started.

    Hi all.

    I've been gaming since I was in grade 6, when I got an Amiga 500 for xmas. It was a big upgrade from the archaic Pong clone that was my family's only videogame, and cultivated my interest in not only games, but also computers and electronics.

    I'm not all that interested in the pre-16-bit stuff, although I have played a lot of SMS, NES, and VCS games, as well as many classic arcade games.

    My favourite types of games are fighting, puzzle, fps, and adventure.

    I don't like RPGs. and I suck horribly at music, racing, and sports games.

    Aside from gaming, my biggest interests are electronics, physics, and martial arts.

    Hi Everyone,

    My name's Garry and I'm from Edinburgh in Scotland. I'm 26 years old and work in IT (mostly networking and server stuff).

    I found the site and these forums while searching Google for rarity lists.

    My favourite games are usually platformers and RPGs. I don't collect for any one system but my Master System collection is the biggest at the moment with around 50 games and I'd really like to make the SMS the first system I have 100 games for (especially because it was my first console as a kid).

    I'm currently going through the task of pulling all my systems out from storage to catalogue (and play with!) them.

    I've been collecting for about ten years after having got rid of my original childhood games machines (Sinclair Spectrum, Sega Master System and Commodore Amiga) which I've regretted ever since I sold them. I'm having fun seeking out titles I played when I was younger and also trying out sytems and games I never owned or couldn't afford at the time. I also enjoy playing the modern consoles.

    See you all around!

    Been lurking for a while so I figured I should register finally.

    From Ohio and I own my own construction business. I love my job, but don't like to work

    Currently engaged and we have a 10 year old son. All 3 of us play games every day. My soon to be wife plays more than I and the son do.

    I used to collect games fairly religiously for a long time, but recently decided to sell off almost everything. I kept my complete TG 16 collection, complete 5200 collection, all of my rare Xboxes and some DC stuff, PS1/PS2 stuff.

    I am more of a modern gamer now as I find newer games more interesting. I still go back and play the oldies but just in short stints.

    Hello,

    I've been reading these forums for a little while and I've decided to register.

    My real name is Bryce and I live in the Detroit, MI area.

    I was turned onto the site by a fellow gamer and I've been hoplessly addicted.

    I've been collecting video games and systems for quite sometime. It all started for me with a little system called the Atari 7600 (even though it blew up ) then to my one of my favorite systems the Sega Master System and I've been a gamer ever since. These days I'm in to hunting around stores to find good game deals and own many of the current gen and 16-bit era consoles.

    I look forward to many great discussions.

    Hi, my name is Tom. I've been playing games since the sega master system and have been building up my collection since then. I own around 1200 videogames for around 25 consoles. They are mostly Pal versions since I live in Belgium.

    My favorite genre is 2D RPG, I have a soft spot for the Nippon Ichi games, and everything sega related

    Default Well hello

    My name is Justin. I am from Santa Barbara, California where I am a student of philosophy and computer science at the local City College. I plan on transferring to UCSB. I spent 6 years after high school as a musician, before I shaped up and hit the books as I entered my mid twenties. I study Karate and play the trumpet when I'm not in school.

    I found DP while searching for classic gaming resources and communities to interact with. I have been collecting for nearly a decade, focusing on the NES. My favorite games are The Legend of Zelda, Wizardry, and Ninja Gaiden. I also honor my roots as I am quite proficient at Defender and Galaga.

    I began collecting when I realized just how much I missed over the course of my gaming career, which began in the summer of '86. It is now my personal goal to learn to program the kind of games I could be happy with, weather I market them or not. I am happy to join this wonderful community. Long live the classics!
    I game, therefore I am

    Heya...I'm Nikademus (tho you can just call me Nik ), and I've loved video games pretty much my entire life. I remember standing on a chair to play Pong at the drugstore

    I'm a food service peon in Wisconsin, and I found this site awhile back while I was playing in google looking for stuff having to do with MAME.
    I love 'old school' games like Mr Do!, Pac Man, Tetris, and Klax. I like RPG games too, like the Capcom D&D games and newer stuff like Neverwinter Nights.

    Good day, DP'ers. I'm Anton, I live in Leiden in The Netherlands, where I am a CS student at Leiden University. I'm 21 years old, and I've been collecting for 3 to 4 years now. My favourite generation is the 32-bit one, and hence my collection focuses on the Sega Saturn (mostly) and to a lesser extent the PS1 (mainly PAL stuff). Recently I've started buying arcade stuff too, for one I have a modest Japanese ST-V collection which I use with my homemade supergun (my holy grail right now is obtaining a Radiant Silvergun cart for it).

    Apart from gaming, I also collect vinyl records and Laserdisc movies, I fiddle around with electronics and (assembly) programming, love reading decent books, strive to attain an unreasonably archaic vocabulary in Dutch and English, do a lot of cycling, and am a board member for a student club (takes a considerable amount of time).

    Hi, my name is Brian and I was referred to this fantastic site by some friends of mine. I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada, and have been collecting, trading, and selling video games for almost 10 years.

    Just completed my first trade here, this is truly a great site.

    Default Hi from me! Yay! :)

    Hi! My name is Young, and I live in Boston. I'm a systems administrator at Harvard University, and got told about this site from a nerd friend of mine, Todd (don't tell him I said that).

    I'm 40 years old, and have been into *any* kind of gaming ever since I got my first Pong game!

    I currently have a PS2, Xbox, Dreamcast, PSP and a DS. I've kind of moved towards handheld gaming ever since I started riding the bus to work. Right now Animal Crossing and Mariokart keep me occupied. At nights, I like playing Grand Theft Auto for the PSP.

    I've posted my friend codes in the 'friend code' thread in the modern gaming section. Hope you add me! -y

    Hey guys
    My real name is Rory(i'm a guy) I'm 15 years old and i have been playing NES since i was born. I started to collect systems about 2 years ago and i have a total of 80 systems. I don't like anything preNES. My 80 systems is the reason for the name and everyone at school calls me that. I have recently got into the wierd stuff of gaming like a Game.com or my Virtualboy. I also collect promo items and game pins. My game room is cramed with all my stuff and its only 10'x18'. I am hopeing to get a MVS because i like fighting games. I also make money repairing systems since i have no job. My friend mr.smiley381 sent me here and i notice a lot of people with your rarity guide.

    Default A newbie =)

    Name: Tony Hamilton
    'Net Names: ahamilton0953, highnote, and Kingofhearts178 ( don't ask lol )
    Age: 27
    Location: Milwaukee, WI USA
    Job: Inside sales/support for Rockwell Automation
    Hobbies:gaming (duh), reading, listening to music, watching baseball and football ( and getting into indoor soccer more and more ), playing chess ( playing online and starting to get a little better ) among other things

    My Collection:

    I don't know how many games of each I have but I don't have many anymore =(
    My younger brother pilfered and sold quite a few but here are the systems I have:

    Sega Master System ( 17 yrs old still going strong )
    SNES
    Sega Genesis
    N64
    Sega Dreamcast
    Sony Playstation
    Nintendo Gamecube


    I have a few game series I like such as: Super Mario Bros, Suikoden (sp?), Resident Evil, Wonderboy, Zelda, and Castlevania.

    I like RPG's ( obviously with Suikoden ) and action games, but I can't go wrong with some good side scrolling action either.

    I'm one of those on and off gamers. I play ofr a while, real life gets in the way ( such as my recent wedding ) and then I get back into it.

    I'm hoping to slowly rebuild my game collection and try and get a few more systems ( NES , Sega Saturn and 32x ) and more games.

    Once I get a house the wife promised me a room of my own so I'm going to set it up with my systems =) I'm hoping to set up a rig so I can have all them connected and just use them as I want anytime without having to connect and disconnect them all the time.


    Feel free to message me anytime =)

    Nice to meet all of you. My name's Rick, but I go by "WiteoutKing" online in pretty much any area. Got linked here from someone, but I forget who. The Arcade system looks pretty damn sexy, if I do say so myself.

    I also hover around Sonic CulT (have been a member there for about 2.5 years now, also part of CulT Family).

    I just found these forums tonight, so I registered in hopes of becoming a true collector.

    My name is Joey. I live in Savannah, GA but soon to be back in school in TN.

    I found these forums while searching for an NES rarity list. I now refer to the Online Rarity Guide here daily.

    I am a Nintendo enthusiast at heart, but love many other systems as well. Being only 18 yrs old and having just graduated high school, I am just beginning to break into collecting. I have mainly been collecting for the NES, but hope to move to other consoles as funds become available.

    My favorite console game currently is Donkey Kong Country.

    My day job is waiting tables. People are mean to me. I deal with it.

    I definitely plan to be a regular on these boards henceforth.
    Negative, negative! We have a Wildcat destabilization of the ship's fusion core!
