For me it's a case of trying to complete my Transformers game collection which is 99% there for the first stage to get every game, then it's onto international packaging variants and budget re-releases although I've made some progress in that area as well.

After that one of my big regrets, like several on here, was to sell off a lot of my collection over the years so my C64, Vic 20, PS1 and PS2 collections are a little threadbare right now. For the C64 and Vic 20 I'm start to buy as many of the games that I used to own as possible and just build up a new collection, I'd like to get some more of my favourite PS1 and PS2 games that I sold when I needed cash, and the collections I have for my other systems - SNES, N64, PC Engine, NES, Famicom etc are a little on the small side so I wouldn't mind getting more games for them too.

Think I could spend months on ebay if I had the spare cash!

THink the next purchase will be resident evil raccoon city, then after that, think I'll be importing something special, maybe a twin famicom, or something equally as cool

Still trying to get a copy of Springer (Atari VCS).
I want one cheaper than the £30-50 ebay price though!

Castlevania Harmony of Dissonance (GBA)
Castlevania Aria of Sorrow (GBA)

Trying to get both complete and in really nice condition but it's expensive and difficult to do so. I got the NES Classics version of the original game for GBA this week but the box is a bit more beat up than it looked on ebay so I'll be wanting to replace that too at some point.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
