I couldn't even begin to count tbh. :?
I have games all over the place that I haven't even moved (much less played) literally in years.

They're not even organised into any sort of order, just all taking up shelving (and floor) space. :mrgreen:

Too many to count & so many systems as well as I store in boxes & stack em in large cupboards if I started counting it will take me many weeks to do.

Easier to just check my playfire (in my sig) rather than me listing tons of systems and figures. Add around 10 to the total for games not listed on their database that I can't be bothered to add.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

No idea. I've got approaching 700 listed on Playfire already, but that doesn't include most of my 8-16 bit stuff that I haven't dug out of the loft in years. Total will easily be over 1000 I reckon.

Gamecube: 67

...for a total of 210, if my maths are correct. Not too shabby.

Just under 200 now I think.

I'll probably have a mass clearout soon enough - games that I have no interest in. I'm not a hoarder.

The exact figure should be around 1,100 games, split over 25 different consoles. Most of my games are on the PS1, NES & Atari 2600...
I've started collecting retro games in 1999 or 2000 if I remember correctly... so it means I buy on average 100 games a year! :shock: I'm quite amazed especially since my very first salary is only 2 years old! :lol:

4185 (ish)
The majority of these are for cassette based systems (over 1000 spectrum games :roll: )

Most of the collection is car boot hauls so nothing amazingly uber-rare and I would think at least 60% of the cartridge games are loose. I'm more of a horder than a collector, my loft looks like Mr Trebus's back bedroom if he had decided to concentrate on games consoles and home computers :wink: .

Although this collection is more quantity than quality I do pride myself in keeping track of it all in my own analy retentive style (see the spreadsheet link in the sig)

Just over 400 at last count, so a little more than that now. Mostly Master System (about a hundred) and fair amounts of PS1, PS2 and 360, and smatterings of the other systems.

Megadrive is 150-200
Mega CD is 40 ish
Snes is 100 plus
Saturn 50

Then about another 500 to sell on and others inc Amiga, St, c64 and so forth.... no room at the inn!
