How many games* do you own? (*read rules)

Post by Mr Vengeance » Sat Feb 13, 2010 7:31 am

How many games do you own? This has probably been done many times before, but I'm interested myself to see the extent of some of the collections on here, after seeing some lovely collections in the photo thread.

Feel free to list the formats these games are from if you like. I myself own a respectible 374 games according to the rules below, though I'm sure this healthy little collection will be dwarfed by some of you guys on here :shock:


Anyway, the rules so as to keep everyone's figures in parrallel:

1. Physical games only. Do not count how many games you own on your Xbox 360 hard drive, for example.

2. Legitimate games only. No one cares that you own five hundred copied PlayStation 1 games!

3. Multiple copies of the same games are allowed. For example, in my total I have counted my two copies of Final Fantasy VII as two games. Seems fair as I have two separate copies of it....

4. Compiltions, such as Taito Legends, SNK Arcade Classics, etc are to be treated as 1 game. Its one disc, thus its one "title", even though they have many "full" games on them. Some of these packs have forty odd games on them, and lets be honest, wouldn't it sound dumb to say you had 80 games when you had just two collection discs on your shelf?

5. Similar to Rule 4, cartridges with more than one game on them, that are advertised as having more than 1 full console title on them, even though they may have been sold separately on the same system, should be treated as 1 game, ie the Duck Hunt / Super Mario Bros NES game should be considered as one game, even though it has two proper NES games on it. Its one "physical" cartridge after all.

6. Loose games are fine.

7. Games that do not work are not fine however.

8. Them's the rules - don't argue with them ;)




Should make for some interesting reading this.....

173 split over DC/SNES/PS2/Wii/N64/GC/360

I had no idea I owned so much! Time for a mass cull. Ideally I would like a lot less than that, built up of a personal collection of kick arse games that I truly treasure.

DS - 3
PSP - 2
NES - 5
Mega Drive - 17
N64 - 2
Sega Saturn - 8
PS1 - 8 (techically 9, but saving doesnt work on my FFVII which makes it "broken")
Game Cube - 2
Xbox - 2
PS2 - 4
Xbox 360 - 3
PC - 22

So altogether that's 78, which I guess isn't TERRIBLY bad.

Don't know how many exactly, but I'd reckon somewhere between 2500-3000 titles...
