You seem to be in quite a hurry and have most of the hard to find games to go - what's the motivation for end of year and plan for the hard ones?


edit: knowing my luck, this is where you tell us you have terminal cancer or something...

I've gone for a full set before back in 2005/2006 - 2008 and ended up selling due to varies reasons when I was so close to the end. If I don't set myself targets to complete the set I will probably never do it, or if I do the prices of games will go up even more!

The only game I'm worried about finding is smurfs 2 but the rest are easy enough to find (with championship hockey being the possible exception)

Should be easy complete by the end of the year! :D

Edit* the plan for the hard ones are to buy them as I see them for a good price, pretty much all the titles with the exception of the 2 I mentioned are on eBay in one country or another so could easily get them but no rush - I have 9 months to get 20 something rare titles out the way :-)

It's harder than you think, especially these days with so many people hunting for those rare ones. I decided to aim for a complete set two years ago and was already over half way there with a few of the rare ones - I only have 23 to go now and they are all common ones so I can take my time and get them in nice condition.

Looking at the titles I need it's just a matter of how much cash you willing to pay rather than trying to find the actually game.

I'm 100% focused on just the Master System until the collection is complete :) I guess we'll see though as I start to pick up the remaining harder to find titles.

I already have loads of titles that would be considered rare... Power Strike 2, Buggy Run, Addams Family for example with loads more coming in all the time :D

Really hit it hard this month so far, down to just 39 games to go for the full euro Master System set!

Going to take a break until I pickup another Billy Book case and hopefully get to 20 left by the end of May :D

I'm enjoying the Master System right now, currently playing "Wanted" trying to beat NinjaBears top score :D

I get just as much satisfaction collecting the games as I do playing them, it's nice to look at them and when the mood takes me play one :)

I'm going for complete sets for MVS (To have the maximum amount of games to play on my 6 slot) then it's the Mega-Tech & maybe Mega-Play systems (For the same reasons as the MVS).

As for systems I'm only going for NES and CD-i (I'm nearly there already with the CD-i).
