Carrying on my collecting only games I want or mean something to me, and games to complete some mini collections.

Track and Field II, a game I got with my NES turtles pack at christmas as a kid.

I am a huge Capcom and SNK fan and am trying to get as many fighting games as I can, also collecting the comics based on them as well.

and a couple of games to add to the SNK collection

Ironic how a lot of digital releases aren't commercially viable to get given the physical disc-release treatment and yet somebody decided to release a crap ios game on PS2?!?
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Nice work on getting the 2 Zelda Oracles games - I bought mine when they were still new, but it's pretty hard to find them for a reasonable price now.
Where logic won't work, I will

Gfs aunt was going to throw them out. her son has been left home for years and all his stuff was in the loft. she was getting insulation done and so she moved all the stuff frm the loft into the consevatory.

GF and her mother were round there and she was complaining that she was sick of waiting for hom to sort stuff out and she was going to bin it. it was my GF mother who said " John collects those does'nt he " pointing to a box full of nintendo games.

My GF was actually not going to ask for fear of looking like she was being rude.

Long story short

26 loose GB carts
9 boxed GB games
6 GB color boxed games
7 loose GBA games
14 boxed GBA games
16 boxed snes games
8 boxed N64 games.

A lot of the boxes have some damage and a lot I am just going to move on. the 2 Zelda games were what really made it for me, good condition and games I was actually looking for.

Best advice that I always give to anyone is simply let people know you collect old games, it may not pay off straight away, but sometime down the line someone will find some and think of you.

It's pricey (£45.49 inc. postage) but well worth it in my opinion. :D
