    Default Your current game collecting bug...

    I know we have plenty of ongoing threads these days but I always get a new collecting bug and Id like to have one thread to talk about it. So post your bug too!

    Out of nowhere I've gotten the Game Boy bug. I read in Game Informer that someone considers Pokemon to be the greatest game of all time. It got my attention and I'm now in the market for an old Game Boy & Pokemon Red.

    Got the Xbox bug about 6 months ago, been at it since. I thought I was going to have another bug start a couple weeks ago when I bought 30 PSX games, but most of them are on ebay right now, so that one did not last. I will most likely stick with collecting Xbox, if I start collecting something else, my wife might Kill me. . It's good to collect just one thing, that way you can use the stuff for other systems to fund what you want.

    Ha. My love changes every few weeks. It's good to focus on one thing...I could never collect just one thing though.

    it's hard to part with some of the stuff I found, but I would much rather have a game I will play than ones that are just worth more.

    Unhappy Import shmup!

    I have been recently leaning back to serious import shmup collecting. I just gotta stay away. I currently have a cart of shmups at play-asia that's going to set me back $750. Someone talk me out of it I have no control.

    You're definitely barking up the wrong tree around here. I say get 'em. Enjoy the games. You only live once.

    I've had a 3DO bug for a few days, oddly enough, though it's only one of many- not counting 6th & 7th gen consoles (for which my collection kinda goes bananas), I've long since had a penchant for obscure PS1 gems and any and all PC Engine/TG games. Pity I can rarely find any of either I'm willing to shell out for...

    Well, we're definetly not the right people to talk you out of it. EVERYONE here has no control---hence collecting assloads of games we'll likely never play. If its a good deal, go buy em!!

    I went from having the NES Factory Sealed games bug to the NES CIB games bug. I figured I'd rather have a CIB game and play it at the same time, rather than oogle at a factory sealed game that I can't play.
    I am a collector of the classics (Atari, NES, SNES, Genesis, 3DO, Saturn, etc.)

    My new bug is Playstation and that only pretty much. I mean I will grab stuff for other systems, but that will be my main focus.
    Looking to buy any Criterion movies that I don't already have.

    i get on what i call 'kicks' for certain things from time to time...i was on a ps1 kick for a long time, but that seems to have tapered off recently. unfortunately i have many many games and hate ebay shopping, so cant get on kicks like i used to anymore, as there is just not the amount of product available that i dont have. its sad really.

    I've always been a die hard SEGA fan myself, with the Mega Drive being my all time fave system, but I'm currently interested in collecting for the Super Famicom again (like the 4th time). There's a lot of BEU games I didn't realize had come out for the system that I have to collect it. Only this time I've got to space out the purchasing a bit.

    I'm trying to get the rest of the pinball sims I want. So far this year, I've acquired:

    Pinball Quest (NES)
    KISS Pinball (PSX)
    3D Ultra Pinball: Thrillride (GBC)
    Disney's The Little Mermaid II: Pinball Frenzy (GBC)
    Sonic Advance + Sonic Pinball Party (GBA)

    The NES bug still continues. So far, I've acquired 11 games:

    Adventure Island (loose)
    Chip ‘N Dale Rescue Rangers 2 (loose)
    Contra (loose)
    Iron Tank (loose)
    Kung-Fu (loose)
    Mappy-Land (loose)
    Pinball Quest (loose)
    Shadowgate (loose)
    The Simpsons: Bart vs. The World (loose)
    Sqoon (loose)
    Tetris (loose)

    Small potatoes compared to some of the NES hauls I see in the finds threads, but I'm kinda picky. I've really gotten back into the NES since I got a Top Loader last October and the bug hasn't died down.

    I have a small Gamecube bug. For the longest time it was hard to find anything I wanted, at least on the cheap. Then within the last two months, I got City Racer and True Crime: New York City on Amazon.com, and splurged a bit on Need For Speed Carbon. I need one more to put me at 60.

    I've been into the Genesis bug again, and my Genesis is at home while I'm at college. In the mean time, I've bought Comix Zone, Pigskin Footbrawl, Toejam and Earl, Zombies Ate My Neighbors and boxes for two of my favorite Genesis games: Mortal Kombat and Bonanza Brothers.


    In the mean time I have also caught the Jazz bug.

    "No, I believe we are all talking together."
    -"I normally don't do interviews with women unless i fornicate with them................(long pause)......................so you shouldn't talk anymore..........unless you wanna....you know..."

    For some reason all of a sudden I wanted to collect for the Intellivision. The odd thing is I don't even own one :P. I started to do some research and it sounds like a very appealing system, and a system that I might actually be able to get a some what complete collection for. I actually bought my first Intellivision today. Can't wait for it to come.

    But I'm still into collecting stuff for the Atari 2600 and 800XL w/ 1050 floppy disk drive.
