Oh right, so no-one on this forum has a collection of games then? :roll:

How on Earth did you get from "video gamers not being collectors by nature" to "no-one on this forum has a collection" exactly?! Some gamers are collectors but not all of them, therefore gamers in general aren't collectors naturally; Dudley didn't say there were no collectors at all, just that being a collector isn't synonymous with being a gamer and he's right.

Amassing a pile of video games is a collection. In that you have collected them. Therefore, you are a collector. What are you not getting here?

Would that be after I made a big post with lots of points in it that got ignored, or after the far more relevant squabbling match which immediately followed it?

Well no it isn't. Not really.

I have 15 bottles of random cleaning type stuff in my cupboard. I wouldn't say I'm a collector of cleaning products.

My housemate has maybe 15 pairs of shoes. She's not a shoe collector.

All women are shoe collectors.

And you strike me as the kind of person that actually would collect cleaning products.

I think the only difference between jap version of last battle,fist of the north star ,and the western release was that the eneimies heads never flew off ,when they were hit!

Still a pile of poo though![/img]
