    Default I知 obsessed with buying consoles!!!!

    Man, I just got to let things go! I致e been buying stuff like crazy the past few weeks and I知 starting to scare myself. Lately I知 obsessed with getting a Neo Geo and a Turbo Duo, do I really need these two systems? Nope. Are there any really great titles I want for these systems? Nope. Am I driving my wife and my wallet crazy? Yep. I致e blown around 300 bucks in the past week alone (for me, that痴 a lot). Man do I have to pace myself before I land up in divorce court!

    Oh, and I want on of these as well:


    JAMMA player and two controllers, $299.


    Seethere I go again!

    Take a hike, wang-broom!
    I swear I can smell your stinky hands from here!

    Let us know when you get the Nova supergun. I've heard mixed reviews about them...

    Good buys. I have been doing the same thing lately, except with things for the XBOX. Just got one two months ago, and need about 75+ games for it. Me and my girlfriend go places every weekend for sales at all the stores in the area.

    I have the same habit, infact I just bought the following systems in the past 2-3 weeks.

    Sega CD
    Neo Geo AES
    3DO
    NUON

    Not to mention countless games, I have spent nearly $1000 in the past month.

    WRONG! These consoles are so magically fun, you won't believe it.

    I went through the same phase, especially the "Gotta have a Neo Geo/DUO" one. When I finally got them, it was like filling a gaping void, I was finally at peace. I bought them just to "have", I thought I wouldn't play them. But now I can't turn those suckers off! TOTALLY worth it.

    Right now, all I need is a boxed ColecoVision and my console voids will be filled.

    It is almost impossible for me to pass up consoles if they are cheap. I recently picked up 2 more NES decks to add to the 6 other untested ones I had at home, just because they were cheap( whole box of stuff for $3 at a yard sale). Usually if I find a console in the wild I pick it up, unless it's one of the $30 Genesis consoles that people think are rare.

    If I run into a console for cheap at a garage sale or thrift store that I already own...I'll buy it and sell it on ebay. If I don't already own it...I'll keep it, but I usually don't run into consoles at garage sales that I don't already own.

    Really though, I only want to own consoles that I'm going to play...not ones that are just going to sit, collect dust, and take up shelf space. Even if they do make a good conversation piece.

    I have a similar problem. I collect all video games and systems. If I find something cheao at the swapmeet for cheap, I'll buy it even if I already own it. Sometimes it turns out in better condition that before.

    When I first started collecting, I was obsessed with buying obscure consoles as well. Its something about telling people "I have a _____", and they have no idea what your talking about.

    *raises hand*
    That's me.

    I remember when I showed my friends my Game.com. They were all like, "why the hell did you buy that?"

    Nothing wrong with buying consoles, though. I was into that really big for a while, but then I stopped buying consoles and started buying games. I plan on finishing my console collection someday, though.

    What I'd really like to get is some TG16 games! I spent $200 for my Turbo Duo, and the only game I have for it is an import Tenchi Muyo game that I can't play 'cuz it's mostly text.
    Looking to buy: Galerians disc 2 (PSX) and The Unholy War case/manual (PSX). PM me!

    Couldn't agree more, do not underestimate either of these systems or the large amount of great games available for each of them...

    I go through these phases as well. It drives my wife nuts. I go through buying games, to obscessing over consoles, to now shoes of all things!! ( I am a huge Converse fan). Your phase will pass, but it will come back to some degree on and off......

    I've been buying up Atari 2600 systems/games/controllers lately. I've also been buying up NES/SNES/N64/GB/GBC/GBA games like crazy. Probably spent $400 in the last month on games alone.

    Hey look at it this way, once you buy every system you won't have to buy anymore of them well except the newer ones I guess
