Rather embarrassed to say I have never played on one!

Here you go, a link to parts of my collection on RetroCollect: Link

As people also asked for a photo of my DS collection I took an additional photo not meant for the RC gallery:
I was about to praise a brilliant collection then I saw Cover Girl!
Although I haven't played it so maybe I shouldn't judge, is it a hidden gem?

Haha, well, in my defense, I only paid 1€ and picked it up mainly because it's obscure and actually got decent reviews. Of course its useless for (straight) guys but maybe the gf will enjoy it. Although I remember reading that it also had a sex advise component or something like that, maybe I should check it out after all :lol:

Oh and as I realize the external link gets overlook easily, here's a teaser photo of the collection:

Is it actually easy to play without knowledge of the language? I considered it and may still pick it up if so.
I asked for orange. It gave me lemon lime!

My collection at the moment - a few new editions but nothing major.

Image

Just got a NES recently, only place for it to go down there. Amstrad CPC gets more play then it should as it has its own monitor so easy to start up!

Image

Spectrum, C64, MSX and Atari tapes with a few boxed ST games also.

Image

Couple of new editions, CD32 and ATARI 2600 jnr (or whatever its called) fro Felgekarp

Image

Megadrive is to the far left in darkness, lots of systems hooked up to that widescreen CRT inc. 3DO, Saturn, Master system, c64 and others.

Image
An oldish PC for emulation with my X-Arcade stick.

Image

Main games wall focusing on Dreamcast and Megadrive stuff, with some PC engine, SNES, N64 and modern stuff too (and maybe a few 3DO games). all shelving from IKEA but was told they don't make those cases anymore. :(

Image
Other corner with an IKEA glass cabinet with bits and bobs of ephemera.

Image
Close-up. Need a new battery pack for my Virtual Boy, went missing a while ago... A mug from Retro Reunited for the SHMUP comp.

Image
Some more games round back, Intellivision, Jaguar, XBOX and other stuff.

That's about it. :)
Image

The main PC, Wii, 360 and PS3 and arcade cab are downstairs.

That's a brilliant setup, especially the last pic which really makes that room look like a nice chillout place :)
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Love your set up Sscott, I know I'd get a massive punch in the face if I had all that hanging around.

very nice

due to a house move in a few months i have to get rid of a few bits and pieces, and i will not have a dedicated games room. Looking for ideas to make a guest bedroom a retro room that's still pretty enough for non-gamers!

Here's my collection of Atari 8-bits and my Lynx. It's a rather pathetic collection compared to some of the others in this thread but here you go. (I had totally forgotten that I still had my Cheetah 125+ which gives a nice rattle when it's moved!). I also have a big stack of Atari 8-bit magazines from when I was scanning material for the GameBase ST project.

Some nice Atari stuff, particularly the Atari 400/800, I mainly collect carts for my Atari now.

I love your loft setup sscott and miss seeing it on YouTube. Nice to see a GX4000 in use.

Hopefully I'll get a similar game room someday soon :)

its not too bad to play (once you work out what on earth you have to do as its not really a traditional fighting game) worth it if you can get it for a couple of quid
