No completist urges here, but I've started buying minty Japanese Super Famicom games (Super Metroid, Arkanoid Doh It Again and Super Aleste already snared). I'll be continuing to pick up various mint/NM Jap Dreamcast and PC Engine gems although Ive got 90% of what I want for both formats.

I'll keep my eyes peeled for Speccy and Amiga stuff too. (Mint Academy and the triangular Tau Ceti packaging for Speccy and Rainbird's Amiga adventures are all on my "to score" list).

As far as contemporary stuff goes i'm hoovering up all the DS and Wii niche gems I can and keeping a steely glare directed at Cave's 360 release schedule.

2010 Ho! :)

Having had a bit of a change of heart recently regarding my collecting habits, I am aiming for the following:

A collection of around 100 PS2 games. Ones I like the look of rather than ones that are necessarily thought to be good.
Expanding one of my 8 or 16 bit collections to a full PAL set (not sure which system yet)
I may also try to get more Japanese Dreamcast games. - and then try to learn Japanese.

I'd also like a Spectrum +3. But they go for way too much on Ebay.

I currently have around 300 PS2 games, 100 cube games, 150 - 200 Megadrive games, Nearly ever Mega-CD game, shed loads of Amiga games, Dreamcast, Amstrad / Speccy and Gx4000. If I ever manage to complete my cube collection, I'll look to start a collection for the PC Engine.

Long term it's to get as close to a full set of SMS games as possible. I think i'm half way.

Possibly going to focus on the Saturn and Mega Drive as well, aim to get double what I have now on both (160 ish on MD, 90 ish on Saturn). I've given up on the DC collecting mainly because I want to just get the best games for the system (I can plough through a few SMS or MD games in a night, a lot of DC games need a lot more time). So if anyone has any common DC games they are after from the people who want complete sets give me a Pm and i'll see what I have.

Megadrive and Master System games take up so much space, I have 87 MD games and they take up tons of space. I guess the Neo Geo games would take up the most room.

In my DC collection I have some rare(ish) games but someonehow will miss extremley common ones (I don't own Trickstyle) for example!
