Here's our collection:

Image Image Image Image
Here's my older game consoles and games. Still a bit incoherent collection, though...

Image Image Image Image
Here's some my NES games, our handheld games, my husband's Amiga games and my Game&Watch games. I really regret that I sold my NES collection years ago, for a too cheap price too (though I bet I made one collector really happy...). Now I would like to start collecting NES games back again, but haven't had the money yet...

Image Image Image Image
Here's our PS1 games, my husband's Lunar games and our Final Fantasy collection.

Image Image Image Image
Here's our PS2 games, Gamecube games (and some Wii, Xbox and Xbox360 games), and my newer generation of consoles.

Image
Finally, I took a picture of my all-time favorites (from the games we own)...

PC games were left out, as well as some consoles and Commodore 64 & 128.

Thanks! I would love to extend my collection, but as I spend most of my gaming-time at the moment reviewing new games I dont have much time scavaging the ebays for fancy deals anymore. Kinda sad, but saves me alot of money. Im pretty happy with my games, I have tried to find some more good games, but i end upp watching them reach ridiculous sums which isnt so fun.

A lovely collection of PS1 beat em' ups there aztecca. I too get the Playstation versions if I can even if I only play the Saturn ports, purely because I love em' too much. I only have Pocket Fighter, Darkstalkers and Darkstalkers 3 thus far though. They are all pretty much mint though which I'm pleased about :)

Shame that the PAL PS1 ports are so damn expensive though :(
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I still have my copy of it, it sits there on my shelf looking upto the Jap Saturn version and his mate the 4MEG Ram cart, he weeps at night knowing he is a cheap copy! But as you say, we HAVE to have them for the collection!

Here's a photo of our collection mid-move. Haven't had time to unpack it all thanks to work, and the fact that my wife is back in Texas dealing with family business has made it harder. Off to buy bookshelves in a week or two. Once I've got it properly set up I'll post some REAL pictures. But for the time being, here's 950 games in boxes (she kept 50 in Texas, and I've got ~50 out to play). The systems are all in boxes in a side room.

Took a couple more pictures of the new collection I am to complete, boxed Game and Watch units with instructions. So far I have the following:

Image

Super Mario Bros, Black Jack and Mario's Cement Factory

Image

Popeye (Panorama Screen) and Donkey Kong Jr

Image

Closeup of my favourite G&W so far. For a relatively simple 20 year old game its still a joy to play

Image

Closeup of DK Jr

Image

Closeup of my Panorama screen Popeye which is another of my favourites.

Image

One last photo (can't resist posting something Megaman related!), my PAL Snes Megaman collection finally complete. X2 and X3 are 2 of the hardest games I've had to track down for my collection. X3 was also the most expensive purchase I have ever made but was well worth it :mrgreen:
