I guess I'm a collector...

Well, you Guys know, I have no problems or hang-ups accessing flash devices to score on games, I think I took something already accepted and made it a bit more common, tbh.

But I guess I have to give in, and admit that I am mainline hooked on collecting, at this point.

Anything I want to play "seriously", I seek out the real hardware, Dragster, Super Punch Out, Mario Kart(Man, I suck at Mario kart...), F-Zero, the bug has really gotten to me.

I have a few PAL SNES and Megadrive carts on the way, good buddy over there seems to want to help me out, so I'll definitely be building the PAL collection soon.


So, @Baldzillabill came by to hang out, mentioned that there were a few 7800 games at the local thrift store, he was gonna pick up a couple for me, but the Guy was asking so much that he just walked away laughing.

Sent the Wife to check the deal, I was mowing, and he was asking her for the same crazy prices(for sucky games, I just don't have them...).


So I told her to go ahead and grab the Odyssey2 that had been there a couple weeks, I had been on the fence, 75$ boxed, 5 games, no Voice module(not nearly as good a deal as my first O2), but...

Unless I'm mistaken, one of the K.C. games pushes over 50$ boxed, lol, and I got both, so the Guy really needs a "heads up" of some kind, but you know some people...


Upside down pic, sorry...

Is my first boxed "classic" system(I have boxed NDS's), so am super proud to have it!!!


When I joined Twin Galaxies in 2016, I had a PC with MAME, and a Sega Genesis deep down in a box that I didn't care about.

I have almost 30 systems now, lol, counting NDS variations, and probably a thousand hard-copy games.


What a ride, lol.

Thanks, TG, I needed this in my life.

:)

    Just started myself really a little while ago. Up to 35 unique systems and growing. It's fun. Especially getting something I never owned when it came out. Even if it's garbage like the r zone.

    Until you own 7 copies of the same system, you're still a runt. I kid. ;)


    Congrats though! I know this means a lot to you and please keep the trend up buddy.

    I went ahead and actually counted, you inspired me to check-


    1)Atari 2600 NTSC(x5...)

    2)Atari 5200 NTSC

    3)Atari 7800 NTSC(x2, sending one to another TG member soon)

    4)Intellivision(x2)(Both broken)

    5)Vectrex

    6)Odyssey2(x2)

    7)NES NTSC(x2)

    8)SNES NTSC

    9)SNES PAL

    10)Sega Genesis NTSC

    11)Sega Megadrive PAL

    12)Sega Dreamcast NTSC(No cords, controllers, or games, lol)

    13)N64 NTSC

    14)Gamecube NTSC

    15)Wii NTSC

    16)PS1 NTSC

    17)PS2 NTSC(x3, 1 is slim)

    18)PS3 NTSC

    19)GBAsp

    20)NDS(original)

    21)NDSlite(x3)

    22)DSi(x2)

    23)2DS

    24)2600 Flashback 9

    25)Intellivision Flashback

    26)Colecovision Flashback(broken last time I tried it)

    27)Atari 2600 PAL(edited this in, I knew I missed something VERY important!!!)


    That's it, I think.

    Probably a Colecovision and a TG16 are my biggest "wants", tho I'm only passive in getting stuff-I may get a Coleco the next couple days, but requires leaving the house a little longer than I want to, lol, so I dunno.


    I don't know what all I may be missing, Fairchild Channel F, Aquarius, Astrocade, Phillips CDi(looking into one of those too, but another longish drive).


    If I got out more, I'm sure I'd have a bigger collection, I have no idea why, but again, it just seems like out here "in the middle of nowhere", I really find some good deals on some gems.

    Let me sit down Sunday and go over what I have. I might be leaning towards hoarder status but it isn't hoarding if you **** is actually cool.
