what's on your wants list ?

Post by preownedgames.co.uk » Wed May 31, 2006 4:29 pm

I'm not talking about new releases or stuff that's coming soon I mean what stuff is missing from your collection ? What are you scouring the auction sites for ?

Mine are mostly amiga games and i'm currently after...

IK+ (keep finding the kixx budget version)
superfrog (keep seeing the CD32 version)
shadow of the beast 3
great giana sisters
turrican 2 (seems to be very expensive)
midnight resistance
battle isle
SWIV



I've got a couple of hundred amiga games but these seem to have eluded me.

So, what are you missing ?

Top of my 'wanted list' in no particular order;

Clean Up Service - Players Software - 1987 (C64)
Goodness Gracious - Beyond - 1983 (C64)
Skel - Hitech Games Plus - 1984 (C64)
The Fifth Axis - Activision/Loriciels - 1986 (C64)
Lemmings - Psygnosis - 1994 (C64)
Alien3 - Probe Software/Acclaim - 1992 (C64)

All the above on cassette.

I also have a number of 'wants' for my other systems, especially Amiga games (got loads of 'YAH HA ME HEARTY' disks but want originals) and I'm currently on the look out for a Sega Master System (model one) with 'Alex Kidd In Miracle World' built in. I have a SMS1 with 'Hang On' built in and a SMS2 with AKIMW built in, but will sell both of those to own the desired one (the one I owned as a young 'un.)

Lemmings shouldn't be very hard to find, just keep looking on eBay. Alien 3 on the other hand, good luck, one of those "pushing rare category" games.

It took them that long to port Lemmings to the CBM64?

There is a mouse option in the C64 game. It's a very good conversion.

As for what I'm currently after, I'm trying to pick up the Paper Mario games and some other N64 titles in good condition (boxed with manual)

I'm still looking for loads of stuff (I only started collecting about 2 years ago) but here are some of the things I'd like to get.


Rags to Riches (C64)
Fort Apocalpse (C64)
Jack the Ripper (C64)
Aztec Challenge (C64)
Disk drive for C64

Emerson Arcadia 2001 - it was my first ever console.
Vectrex - Asteroids and Scramble just look so amazing on it.
NeoGeo - I always loved the NG games so am looking out for the console.
Boxed Vic-20 - This was my first computer and although I didn't have it too long before getting a C64 it holds a special place in my heart.
