Believe it or not, video game collecting and information has a wider scope than just RF Generation. Below is a collection of links that we have found to be useful for a variety of reasons. Some are great information resources, others nice places for collectors to meet, greet, and talk about what we all love most: video games. One way or another, we think that if you look around at some of these sites, you'll be glad that you did.
If you have a video game related site that you think belongs on this list, or would like to set up a link exchange with RF Generation, please contact the Site Director at firstname.lastname@example.org, or send a PM to an administrator via our message boards.
