I grew up from the original Nintendo and onward but I've collected as far back as Pong consoles. I definitely find more time to collect things then I do to play them nowadays and have things ranging from that era to now. I even go out of my way to collect the less known things and their games like Philips CD-i, Turbografx, Neo Geo Pocket Color and Wonderswan whether the games are good, bad, cheap, or expensive. I've never counted my collection but it filled somewhere between 15-20 boxes when I recently moved.
Nice, a real collector here! You know, I've got a collector in my town who has a kind of shop with a lot of retro games and consoles which he sells. He even has an original Neo Geo arcade machine for sale!
He's also my source for older games for the GBA and GameCube
I'm sure you'd love him too!
Like yourself, my gaming history goes way back and so I have an extensive collection of games and consoles. As something of a collector/hoarder, i have kept every game and console I have ever owned with the exception of the N64 which I donated to charity and my Gameboy that I gave away to my niece. I also have a large backlog of games that are unopened that I bought on sale but never got around to playing.Like many people, I've been gaming from the Atari days onward. With that, I've built up a huge collection of games. I still have all my games from Atari, NES, Sega Master System, Genesis, SNES, PS1, PS2, and Gamecube. I'm actually going to start looking at how much it's worth.
