secret santa subtle hints thread 2016

Post by flatapex » Fri Oct 21, 2016 12:11 pm

well this is normally popular and useful, give as many hints as you can to help whoever is buying for you

my list is:
anything pretty much.
General guidance:
I love racing games but I have loads, also love point and click stuff, my full collection is on retrocollect
I collect any sega oddity from md era and earlier.
Most of my gaming is on handhelds, of which I have loads.
I love anything funny, sensible software or sega, so much so I own a SNES mouse just for cannon fodder.


tshirt size large

likes: comedy, cars, motorsport (particularly btcc and collect autographs), olympic history, 80s and 90s pop culture, into sci-fi but never watched any of the major shows. My geek subjects are British comedy of the 80s and 90s, btcc (British touring cars-especially the gow era) and the itv chart show.

dislikes: wrestling (not been into it since the mid 90s), superheroes and pc stuff (unless its chromebook compatible)

Some people are using last year's thread it seems, so I'll post this in both.

Currently looking to expand my PC Engine/Turbografx lineup.
Not into RPGs at all.
Point-and-click ain't my schtick.
I like rom hacks and I'm happy with repros.
I love anything to do with nostalgic kid's TV.

Edit: Shirt size is 2xl

I'm terrible at subtlety.

Games wise.

No sports. I have a missing list on retro collect ( hint the bigger the missing list , the less likely im collecting or playing )

Clothing , Im a jeans and t-shirt person of an XXL nature (XL if its not the shrinking kind) , not into modern gaming per se.

TV its Walking Dead , 80's cartoons and generally NON Star Wars related scifi.

So not so subtle , or that hinty.

Anything will be appreciated , seriously. Games related goes a long way.

Just a straight copy and paste from the 2015 thread...

I'm not really fussy but i'm a sucker for Master System + Mega Drive based merchandise and anything Sonic related.
Oh! my T-Shirt size is medium incase someone goes down that road

I do like my shmups. But it's a pleasure to receive anything, really. :)
