As Dudley says, buying some games doesn't make you a collector and, since a lot of people here use emulators and therefore don't amass a pile of games they are not collectors - which bit of this are you not getting?

Nope once more, my partner has two pairs of shoes at any point in time and can usually only find three shoes. That's the problem with ridiculously wide, sweeping statements, there are usually people around who shoot large holes in them for you.

Hi Fraser, yes there are two different books. I plan to get my hands on the one you posted as it has a focus on all the earlier Capcom games. :)
