    EDIT: As of 10/20/10: I'm now at ~620.

    Original 08 post:
    As of 1/1/08 - I'm now at 902. Between 03-06, I was up to ~1450 games. Then I decided to open my store, and well, let's just say it went back down quite a bit...

    Original 03 post:
    I decided to add everything, and I came to 958, not including label variations or extras.

    I've got 728 unique games for consoles (no PC/Mac stuff included), but some guys on this board have about that many just for the Atari 2600.

    I can't wait to see some of their numbers.

    Dunno...somewhere between 750 and 1000 I suppose, for various systems, with vcs and nes making the bulk of it...

    I think the last time I added it all up it was around 2000.... That was about 6 months to a year ago.

    I've got 20 consoles and about 375 games amongst them (from 1 TG 16 game to 75 VCS games).

    After I add in my handhelds and 8-bit stuff I top 400 (on 27 machines - although I have a lot of pirated 8-bit stuff I don't count which would easily put me over 1000).

    It's funny comparing it to the collections here though. It's miniscule. But the people I know don't come here so they're impressed nonetheless

    It would be a project to count them up at this point!

    To shed some light on this, let me give you a few systems that I can definitely estimate.

    I have over 500 original PSX games.
    I have over 500 Sega Genesis games.
    I have over 250 Dreamcast games.
    I have over 400 Atari 2600 games.
    I have over 500 NES games.

    I collect for every system, and I collect imports for many of them too. I have stacks of Famicom and PC Engine games that I haven't even had a chance to try out yet; and if you start counting diskette games, in some dark closet in my house there are probably 1000 of those.

    It's a sickness. Someday I'll have a "real" count but for now the pictures will have to do - which I desperately need to re-do because my game room pictures are now 18 months old!

    I only collect what I like and I sell off the rest, so I'm not a completist by any means. But this is what I DO have:

    NES: 60 to maybe 70
    Atari 2600: 15
    Sega Saturn: 5
    3DO: 9
    Nintendo 64: 30
    XBox: 3
    PSX: 5

    As of this moment, around 101 games. I take YoshiM's credo to heart, most of my collection is lean and mean, the most I have for any system is the NES, with 39 carts. And! I'm nearing the point where I could collect a few more games and probably be satisfied with it all. Or do I not know any better and am only scratching the surface of this collector mentality?

    3,477 unique games for 35 console and handheld cartridge and disc systems. Keeping your collection on a PDA does have its advantages. Instant totals are one, mobile access to your lists is the next, not buying duplicates is another. I highly reccomend them to anyone with a growing collection...I would be lost without it.

    Highlights for me are:

    719 NES games
    470 Genesis games (all but 6 are boxed)
    435 2600 carts
    212 Saturn games

    My gameroom is quickly running out of space and I am due a gameroom photo update as well. Goodwill been berry, berry good to me!

    Being as I had to leave some of my collection in Oregon for a while when I moved, I also have to estimate. I know I'm over 600, but I'm not sure how close I am to 700. Definitely under 1000 though. I'd guess right near the 700 mark including PC games. Consoles only....right around 600.

    My overall collection's at 250 titles or so, as I tend to keep only the games that I really like. The PSX section is the largest, followed by my Saturn and SNES libraries.

    I think I am sitting at approximately 2,750 game. And I think I own somewhere around 150 systems (including dupes). I am currently working on a database for my collection and getting them all into my Palm like Goodwill Hunter. Though I tell you it is really a odd feeling getting out your PDA at a Goodwill store to check and see what games you have while the old people give you funny looks. ah well =]
