How's the cull going? I'm always impressed by people who can ruthlessly cut their unwanted stuff (something I find hard to do).

So far around 50 PS1 titles, all stuff I will never play.

40 loose Gameboy carts ( used the money to replace some of the carts with boxed versions )

A load of US NES games Boxed and unboxed ( still have the likes of boxed Iron tanks and lone ranger to let go )

around 30 loose Hucard games ( used some of the money to replace some with boxed versions )

2 Spare Amstrad GX4000 consoles

Some crap PS3 games


Slow going but want to make sure I am only keeping what I want.

Before i did my last house move i offloaded a lot of PS2 and XBox games and recently i got rid of a lot of older games. i went through each one to see if it came under any of the following criteria: sentimental value, looks cool and/or likely to play again. I have to say that i feel much happier about my collection now. My Dreamcast, N64, Cube, Saturn, PS1 and SNES collections are much leaner and look better without the average games bulking it out (there were some bad choices i made during my Dreamcast phase...).

I love looking at my PS1 collection ATM. still some stuff to get rid of but looking at them and seeing

Strider 2, Metal slug, etc all next to each other is a lot nicer than it being potted with crap games that will never be played again, especially as those crap games have payed for a couple of nice additions

I'm just about to start. I reckon people have recovered from Christmas by February payday, and it's a while until the summer hols, so seems like a good time to catch that disposable income. The weather isn't great yet either, so people are more inclined to stay indoors looking at forums/ebay and the like too.

It really is worth it TBH. Its not like I am getting rid of anything I want.

I have sold a few games worth £5-£10 and used that money to finally pick up some games I have wanted for ages that cost £25-£30

I aqm not out of pocket and my collection is better for it as I have replaced a few crap gams that I will not play for a couple of games I will.

Same boat, playing what I've collected over the years instead of buying more just to collect dust on shelves. Sold a bit off and spent it on house stuff instead and have no regrets.

Next on my list to go is my pal saturn stuff as I only ever play jpn shooters on me ntsc saturn. So of anyone is looking for a never played still sealed Panzer Dragoon Saga :wink: or more.
