Dont normally think about it, as with the games and the comic book collections being way in the thousads each, I like to sleep at night. But a estimate, about 5,000 ish. My basement is pretty big, and it is filled with games, games consoles, controllers, you name it. I mean filled. I will get some pics up soon.

Interesting question!

Not sure exactly how many I own, but it's got to be several hundred!

I've got Cassettes for the Spectrum, Cassettes for the Vic 20, Carts for the Mega Drive, Carts for the Game Boy and Discs for the PS1.

That's before you include the Discs (Floppy & CD-ROM) for old PC games!

Then there are my handheld LCD games and I have a couple of Game & Watch titles as well.

So that totals up to quite a few... :)

Had a bit of a count and it's nearer 500 than 300. Blimey.

the purchase of some Billy shelves at the weekend is also forcing me to up my count too. For the first time ever I'm considering streamlining the collection - once it's above 500 it gets unwieldy

Not sure exactly but educated guess and attempt at chronological order, which is probably wrong. Some I do not have consoles to go with it which seems a little silly.

Atari 2600 - 70
ZX81 - 30
Hanimex - 4 :shock:
Electron - 20
BBC - 3 (+a few disks)
Spectrum - 250+ (About 10 Disks)
Commodore 64 - 100+ Tapes, 50+ Carts, 30+ Disks
Atari ST - 5
Amiga - 5
SMS - 40
NES - 30
Gamegear - 1 :?
Megadrive - 50
SNES - 35
Gameboy (All) - 20
Saturn - 15
PS1 - 70
N64 - 30
PS2 - 40
Gamecube - 20
XBOX - 250+
360 - 25
Wii - 20

Hmmm no wonder the missus is p!ssed off :lol:

ONLY counting complete boxed titles (some are rough estimates) :

Sega Saturn:

PAL: 300+ (complete collection plus doubles)
JP: 250+
US: 50
Brazil: 4

NES

PAL: 100+
US: 10

MegaDrive (including MegaCD and 32X)

PAL: 80
JP: 7

3DO

PAL: 48

Dreamcast

PAL: 40
JP: 3

Atari 2600
PAL: 30

SNES

PAL: 13
JP: 2
US: 1


Titles for all other consoles (aprox)

PAL: 30
JP: 20
US: 5

Pre-1998 PC titles

Aprox: 60

Amiga

Aprox: 30 original games.

Acorn Electron

Aprox: 20 cassette titles

Commodore 64

Cassettes: 100+
5.25in Floppy: 10


I'm sure I could thrown a few more into the mix but my wife is just about in tears watching me type that lot :? I'd say no more than 1800 if I counted everything, possibly a bit more if we considered GameCube retro.

EDIT: blimey just realised I missed out the handhelds! :shock:
