I would never part with some of my Saturn games, namely the shmups like Souky, Battle Garegga etc but also the classic Sega stuff like NiGHTS, Sega Rally, Daytona USA...

Trying to work on a decent PS2 collection at the mo, and they won't be gong anywhere either.

Xcom:psone.for the simple reason,that i foolishly DID,then regretted it,SO much and cost me a small fortune getting it back :lol:

None of the games since then have had quite such an effect and the promised new game by ex-Bioshock developer?Well,i`ve seen NOTHING. :cry:

I`ve had to sell FAR too many games and system`s in my life as is,i allways regret it.But at the time?seemed like a good move.

Years and years ago I got rid of my Master System but kept all of the games, because we'd just got one of those Power Base convertors, and a couple of months ago I gave away my SNES and all of its games to a buddy of mine - he was desperate for a SNES, I was sick of the sight of my one, it worked out well for both of us (he gave me Shinobi III, Ecco II and Gunstar Heroes for the bundle).

Apart from that, I don't think I'd ever get rid of any of my stuff, especially not any of the handhelds, oh no!

I would never part with my Megdrive and SNES consoles/games.

TBH my 16 bit "collection" hasent grown in size since I was 16 when I got a Playstation and I like it that way. Its like a time capsule.

Even my original Megadrive which has been broken since 1995(ish) is still there. Its nostalgia more than anything but as daft as it sounds, if someone offered me £1000 for my broken MD id still say no.

I wouldn't part with any of my cpc stuff because it's so hard to find working tapes these days.
Starglider 2, Elite, Apidya, Turrican 2 on the Amiga.
Tempest X3, Viewpoint and X2 on the playstation.
Ikaruga on the Gamecube.

How about £1001 :) The only games I got when they were first released were my beloved LucasArts games. It's just a shame I was so young and didn't store the boxes, manuals, or discs for that matter, and they're pretty much gone now... I'd give anything to have those games back in their original and mint condition.

Welcome to the forum!

Same here. Also my RPG collection as a whole.
