Games without systems

Post by Shin_Gouki » Fri Sep 07, 2007 5:41 am

Going through my games today I noticed I have a few games for which I don't own the system. Famicom, C64 and Amiga games all grace the shelves but can't be played. I don't have a working C64 or Amiga, and the Famicom games were bought with the intention of purchasing a Famicom (that was 12 months ago). Anyone else own games for systems they don't actually have?

A few Sega cartridges and various other games that I don't own systems for.. I'm not a very hardcore collector I suppose.

I collected 25 boxed complete JP SMS games (which don't work on a Western SMS) and only recently got a JP SMS to play them on. Don't seem to see many good condition fully boxed JP SMS's about (I dont like buying unboxed loose stuff). Some really great games I can play now though like Alex Kidd BMX Trial! :D
