I'll second that emotion :D

@ Shinobi: lovely stuff mate!! I'd also like to see the boxart on those Super Famicom games :)

I also picked these 2 up not long ago, in conjunction they let me use a proper Sega Saturn on a 360 with no lag. Those trials in SSFIV shall fall!

It was a really good game. A red case and I think they were monster trucks in the game. Standard sort of move forward, dodge left and right affair.

No it only ever had three games. I remember I got a flyer in the pack advertising "coming soon" games for it but I dont think they ever saw the light of day. What are the three? I remember one was football. Was there a shooting one?

May I ask where from?
And how much?
(Im also thinking that a PS2 to 360 one would work out well for my cab and will probably end up in me buying more 360 games)

Right then, I took fast, side on shots of the games I own last week and posted them. TOday I decided to take photos of the most notable games I own from the previous generation, and also some photos of my full collections as well. I have missed out on a lot of games from other formats, but do you really want to see Hitman Contracts, The Lord of the Rings, Sonic the Hedgehog, etc?? Probably not. So only shots of interesting stuff then :wink:

Note, I've only been collecting for a few years. I have, I hope, a fairly good taste for quality games, so before I started collecting seriously, I had a lot of excellent games. Have a look anyway...



First up then, my notable Nintendo games, starting with Gamecube: (click on the pics for bigger shots of the games)

Image

Some N64 games:

Image

Image


SNES:

Image

As you can see, I have very few SNES games boxed, and I have none for the NES. Something I ahve to work on!!


Anyway, Game Boy Colour:

Image

Game Boy Advance - such a superb format!

Image

Thats Nintendo done then....

I'm sh!t with tech me :lol:

Anyway...

PSone RPGs and stuff:

Image

A closer look at my Final Fantasy Origins - not easy to find in mint condition this, I was lucky to pick it up about 5 years ago for a few quid in the shop I worked in. Most of these PSone games and my others (not photo'd and not worth bothering doing really) were bought there actually...

Image


Moving onto PS2 then....

Image

Some of them are hard to find now..... as are these two beauties:

Image



My favourite ever PlayStation developer, Nippon Ichi's in-house developed games:

Image



Some shooters and run 'n guns....


Image


Some SNK fighters for the Xbox and PS2, and some Metal Slugs in there too:

Image


Capcom fighters:

Image


Right then, going back in time somewhat, here's nearly a grand's worth of Neo Geo loveliness :D

Image


The beginnings of my Japanese Saturn collection.... a work in progress!

Image

And lastly, an abandoned PAL Dreamcast collection. This was put to one side when I decided to go DS collecting.... will I revisit it? Not in the short time I won't, but I've some fun games in there....

Image


Thats pretty much the best games I own!

Yeah, the three games are Invader (a shooting one), Football (a football game!) and Minefield (a Minesweeper/Battleships sort of thing). Still have the flyer from it, it says to "Ask your stockist" for more games. Oh the potential!

Neilos: That's just wonderful - is it a shed by any chance? Looks like a nice shed. I have that Beetlejuice coffin, one of my favourite things ever :D
