Title: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Arrrhalomynn on June 08, 2004, 06:59:41 AM
Introduce yourself!  Let us know who you are, where you're from, what your favorite video game system is, a little bit about your collection, or the name of the wart on your left foot.  This thread will allow us to get to know a little bit about each other.

Once you're done with that, take a moment to fill out your profile.  Be sure to put a marker on the map where you live by following the "Member Map" link at the top of this page.

Please stick to introductions only in this topic.  If you'd like to respond to somebody else's introduction, click on their username and follow the "Send this user a private message" link at the bottom of their profile.  It's a great feature to use for introduction topics as well as other personal questions or comments directed at a single user.

I'm Mark, 21 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I study law. Not a very fun study, but I wouldn't really know what else to do.
I start gaming on a pc, before I moved on to the master system. Since then I've always had a weak spot for sega. I've got about 550 games at the moment, and it's not really growing in amount. Whenever I buy something, I usually sell something too. I'm working on a complete saturn collection, only 16 more to go, woohoo!

I'm Mike.  I live in Cincinnati, OH, and lately have been spending my life doing a whole lot of nothing.  I'm hoping that this web site will keep me occupied and be a lot of fun as well.  I've been collecting video games for as long as I could play them, and have always wanted my own video game website.  With the other awesome staff members we have here, it'll surely be an awesome experience.

I collect just about anything I can get my hands on, but have a soft spot for NES, as it was my first system as a kid.  The neo-classics are all personal favorites, but I am still known to play Breakout on my 2600 for more hours than is normally considered healthy.  Of course, I still try to keep up with current releases as well.

Oh, and I ate a guinea pig in Peru once.  

Hope to see you around the boards!

Hi everybody.  I am Jay.  I currently study electrical and computer engineering at Purdue. I live in Cincinnati, the Queen City.  I am not really a video game collector, but I do enjoy playing them.  I found this board through Nep, whom I am friends with outside of the Internet.

I would have to say that my favorite system is N64, mainly because it was the first system I ever really had games for. (I had SNES, but only Super Mario Bros. and Street Fighter.) Plus, it just owned PS, even though no one else thought so.

Hi everybody,

I've also been seeing the same girl (Krissi....YAY!) for over 7 years now, and when I get married your all invited. ;)

I'm Dennis, 36 and from the state of Michigan. I have a wife (Carol), daughter (Allison) and a dog (Stevie) and a fierce habit for collecting.

I collect anything and everything video game related. My first sytem was the Atari 2600, then the Commodore 64, then NES, then Genesis, then PS1. Then I decided I might as well try to get them all. Along the way I've been finding out just how much there is to get, but damn it's fun looking.

I'm particularly fond of the hunt. Thrift Stores, Flea Markets, Garage Sales, the bargain bins. I hit em' all.

What, this again?  I had to copy and paste from the old old message board to the last one.  Now it's gone - I have no idea what I put.

Hi - it's me and I'm here.  I was born some time in the past an I am a gender.  I've heard of video games before.

Again!

Rob, 22, from good ol' Britain.  I play too many games, too much guitar, and don't do enough work.  Start and stop collections in strange ways, generally I get rid of something or other when the moths in my wallet need something else to eat.  Other than that, I play clanned online games a lot, and have been for around 6 years.

I'm Mark. Married, 32 years old, from Bedford, England, but grew up near Brighton. I hardly ever do any real work. Currently I work just 8 hours a week for the Royal Mail. Everything in my house is pretty much salvage, or second hand, or a freebie, or I've done some work for a friend in exchange for something. My food comes from the cheapest stores, and I holiday out of season, and don't own a car. I'm happy with this lifestyle, stuff the rat-race I say. :)

Get everywhere by bicycle, and go games hunting by bicycle too. Only really seriousy started a collectio  this year, but I've bee into retro for 5 years, and playing video games since 1978, and had my first proper machine in 1982.

My collecting is done on a shoestring budget, and I often sell my rarer finds on eBay to fund my collecting overall. I can't stand cardboard boxes, and often throw them away, if Iget a mint boxed game in cardboard I often just sell it

I'm Joe Santulli, from scenic Pompton Lakes, NJ.

I'm the Editor-in-Chief of a small but enduring publication known as Digital Press, which is a hybrid of many different forms of media that caters to the gaming elite - those who love the classics. We started eleven years ago and have done seven books and over fifty periodicals.

I'm also a writer for Tips & Tricks magazine, my column, "Collector's Closet" has been running since the September 2001 issue. I like the fact that I get a paycheck from Larry Flynt.

I'm also a co-organizer of Classic Gaming Expo which runs every year (2004 is in the San Jose Convention Center). You can find out more about the show at http://www.cgexpo.com

Finally, our organization has been involved in a number of price guide and game rating-type projects, like the former Manci Games magazine or the very soon to be Video Game Collector magazine. There is no escaping us! BWA! HA! *cough*

As you can probably tell, I get bored pretty easily. Which leads to my collection. I've been avidly collecting since 1977, though I still have an Odyssey system from 1973. I don't know how many games I have in my collection, but it's never enough. I've taken over several rooms in our house. See http://www.videogamecollectors.com for a visual.

Always happy to mingle with other gamers, especially die-hards. See you on the forums!

Hello there.

I'm Michael, and I have a problem......

Well, not really.

Alright, I just turned 25. I've been married for 2 years now, and have a 15 MO son. I'm currently in the USAF, and I fix airplanes. OH JOY! I am from southern Jersey, and am stationed in DE right now.. :(    I'll be swapping over to train as a Linguistics Cryptologist next year, and then I'm heading to Japan, followed up by PCSing over to WA state. That's where I hope to attend DigiPen, and fulfill my dream.

I've been gaming since I could hold a controller, or should I say joystick or paddle. My dad got me started on an Atari 2600, up to the XE. We were the first to have a NES, but couldn't afford a Genesis. Yup,..skipped the Master System altogether.

I am a part time graphic artist, only because like most of us, I lack confidence. People have always pushed me to do something with it, but there was nowhere, or no one to exploit me, so that's that.

I used to have a massive NES and SNES collection, but I sold all but my personal favorites on eBay, when they first started out. It helped get me my first beater. A 1990 Chevy Cavalier,........man, what a junker. Now, my collection would have easily scored me a second car, and a nice one at that. :(

Right now, I am ferociously collecting GameCube games. Only 85 so far, but it's hard with a family, and my measly pay. I love rpg's, fighters, adventure, action, shmups, tactical, strategy, horror, twitch, and pretty much any good game. Yes, sometimes I even enjoy a sports game,...if you consider Tony Hawk a sports game.

I have a handful of rare sealed games too. Including Panzer Dragoon Saga, Final Fantasy Tactics, Alien vs Predator, and a few other gems. Unfortunately, I sold my sealed Chrono Trigger, and Final Fantasy III, due to some unforseen problems.
I wonder if I'll ever track those down again????

Anyways, I'm also an Alien/Predator nut! I have every toy made, in their likeness's's's. All the comics, and movies as well. I broke one of my LE statues, and vowed never to spend so much money on such an item again. I also love the Kaiju! I love Godzilla, Daimajin, Gamera, and pretty much all of the rest! I love anime too, if you couldn't figure that out. :)

I have over 350 DVDs, and growing. My music collection isn't hurting either, with over 400 CDs,...and yes, they are all legit.

I have so many ideas for games, it hurts. So, I bottle them all up inside, until the day my dreams can be realized. I thought about trying some DC homebrews, but I lack all skills neccessary. Soon, baby,...soon.

I'm currently gaming on my Sony Grand WEGA; KF-50WE610!  With a Sony STR-DE885, pushing my sound! All digital, component and optical connections, for the supreme gaming experience.

Well, that's about it. even though nobody's on this site today, I'll say it anyways.

HAPPY 4TH of JULY!!
Be safe and have a blast!
Michael.

My name is Dustin.  I am 24 (25 in a couple days) and a student at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Michigan.  I came across this site from Digital Press.  My first system was an Atari 2600 and I really started playing when I got my NES.  The NES is the base of my collection but I pick up what I can find.  I especially like finding the things I couldn't get when I was younger for really cheap at Thrift Stores or Rummage Sales.  Such as the Virtual Boy I found a couple weeks ago for $1.10.

My name is Anthony. I live in Spfld Ma. I'm 16 so collecting is what i scape together basically from what little work(if any) i can get. My first systems were Genesis and SNES one for each parents house. My fave was Genesis and my favorite game for it had to be Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Current favorite system is my Halo Xbox. Current adiction is Psi-Ops:The Mindgate Conspiracy. Love the hunt of game collectiong but the best is when you get what you were lookin for at a really good price.

Hi, I'm Dan. I live in Chicopee, MA. (you know, like it says on the side? :))My favorite things are putting things off (i seem to never finish anything |D), anime/manga, and obviously video games. My favorite system is the SNES, it kicks ass! My favorite game is probably Chrono Trigger. (who else here was dissapointed with Chrono Cross?)

Hi, I'm Michiel. I live in Zoetermeer, The Netherlands. I Bought my first computer, a Commodore 64, about 18 years ago.
Since then, I've always played videogames and over the years I collected a lot of systems including: Atari 2600, Atari 7800, Atari Lynx, Supervision, Sony Playstation 2 (which I primairy use as a DVD-player  |D ), Philips Videopac+ G7400, Nintendo NES.

I'm 27 years old (in 10 days I'll turn 28 ). For a living I work at a firm of consultancy where I conduct soil exploration and remediate polluted sites. Another big hobby of mine is visiting fairs and midways, mostly in The Netherlands but now and then in my neighbouring countries Belgium and Germany.

I'm Jon, 34, never married, a musician, artist and writer and partial to older systems but glad to have any kind. I have something like 22 computers and 7 consoles, with some orders about to go into the mail as well. I was a clubworker up until this week when I abruptly quit in disgust over something after 6 years of loyal service at that particular venue. Now I have time to play more games at night and live a healthier lifestyle as a consequence. I've also found lately that participating in these message boards is as surprisingly habit-forming as video games.

Post by: KarmaCreep on August 07, 2004, 08:52:25 PM
Hmm... I'm George.  I was poor in my earlier years so I never actually owned an NES nor an SNES.  My first gaming experience was at my neighbors with the NES, I was around five then. I played games such as Little Nemo: Dream Master and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  The first gaming device I've ever owned was my big fat gray GameBoy!  My first console was the Playstation.  The playstation is probably my favorite cuz I love Final Fantasy games, and that's pretty much where you can find them.  I don't really collect games, I only keep the really good ones that I like, so I obviously don't have a huge collection.  Besides that, I live in Cincinnati, OH and THE END!

I neglected doing this before because I never saw the point. But I feel like posting something, so here it be.
I'm Ian, an all around collecter of all things video game.
I should I suppose say, that Collecting is my hobby, and Street Fighter is my religion.
Of course, I'm more a fan of 2D Fighters and Shooters than most anything, but I still like modern games. (Just not as much because I'm a bitter old man.)
I also, as you might have been imformed, enjoy Pina Coladas, and getting caught in the rain, possibly not in that order.

I have been playing videogames for about 16 years, but I only started collecting about 8 years ago. I try to collect Sega stuff mostly, with the Saturn being my absolute favorite. I hope to complete my PAL Saturn collection one day, but there's still a HUGE pile of games to go.

Hi

Wellllllll I'm Geoff, 29 years old and in South Wales in UK. Been into videogaming most of my natural life. I got a Sinclair Spectrum for my 7th birthday, then changed to a Commodore Amiga. Only recently however in the last 5 years or so have I entered the world of console owners.

A PlayStation and Tomb Raider 2 was my first purchase before upgrading to a PS2 and then getting an XBox. Also in this time I've bought a PC, although I don't use the PC for gaming as I get bored with installing, uninstalling and re-installing games. Plus as it's not exactly state of the art, I get fed up of seeing games I fancy which will not work.

Am into racing / driving games mainly. But love FPS, "survival horrors", and some sports sims (but mainly golf, snooker, tennis games rather than soccer, rugby or any of the US sports - NHL, NFL, NBA, and other three letter combinations).

Hihi~~~ The name is Chiko and just joined the forum about... 10 minutes ago. ^__^v I'm a proud Jersey Girl (Hey! Hold the eggs and the tomatoes!) who is currently... Errr... A bum. (Hence that I just graduated from college and remain jobless.)

I "collect" more games than I actually play them. Generally, it's because I don't have that much time to play them, so I would get the games and save them for later. I just started playing FFIV tonight, and giggle like crazy 'cause I remembered when I first played (or watched my brother played) FFIV when it was on SNES. :3 Ahh... Good Olde SNES. I play mainly RPGs and is a total SIMs addict. No, no, NOT Sim Life and all that... Sim as in Simulation games such as Angelique and Cupid Bistro. :3 Anyway, first console was the olde school Game Boy when it first came out. However, since my parents didn't like the kids to play video games, that remained as the only system I ever had... Until later on... The next thing we got was SNES, sooner or later... Discovered Lufia and became a RPG addict. (Lufia 2 remains as my all time favourite game. :3) Unfortunately... Due to some reasons, I don't have my SNES and SNES games anymore... ;___; I really want them back... *sniffle* Anyway, after that, PS, GBC, PS2, GBA, GBASP, and GC, in that order. I got GC over this summer JUST FOR TALES OF SYMPHONIA. XD;; Now... I guess the next thing I'm going to get is a Japanese PS2, probably PSP then a PS3 in the future. ^__^v I hope I'll get to find a job soon so I could actually start buying stuff! XD; (My part-time job doesn't cover what I want to get... Hahaha...)

hi. I'm Kamino. I live in Wisconsin, or as Tynstar would call it, "the land of shit and icebergs."
I collect anything that i like playing. Which amounts to around 30 systems(heavy on the nintendo, sega and atari of course, with outer systems like coleco and tg16 rounding it out). That's about it. I'm flipping burgers to put myself through college.
my photobucket album http://photobucket.com/albums/v344/krazy_kamino/ will attest to my insanity; a somewhat outdated collection list should be at www.yeahiknowright.net/kamino/gameslist.htm . I have to update that tomorrow.

Anyway, I haven't been here in a long time, thought I'd stop back and say howdy. I am Andrew, I am 25 and live in Chilton, WI. I collect mainly for NES, but haven't done much collecting or foruming since my baby girl was born this past April. All in all I have over 1k games, mostly NES totaling about 530. I have a website I never update www.nesjunkie.com so go visit it. Other then that, Eh, im here. I'll come back more often now.

Hey yo, my name is John. I'm a 16 year old from Brighton, MA (right outside of Boston) and like most of the people here I probably play too many games for my own good. Generally I play things from the Genesis/SNES/Turbo era to current games, although there are definitely further back titles I like. I've been playing PC games for a long while, but getting an N64 in 2000 really set the ball rolling in this hobby.

Favorite genre is action games, although I mean that in a very broad sense that even includes fighting games; I play pretty much anything from Super Metroid to Thunder Force IV to Snake Eater to Guilty Gear X2, it's just RPGs and strategy games that I usually avoid. Finally, I have so little of a life that I staff on a user review-focused game site, http://honestgamers.com. Check it out, it's not rotten crap like 99% of the sites out there, and neither are the reviews.

And unfortunately, I have yet to eat any Peruvian guinea pigs.

Hello all, I'm Brian and I live in Lockport, NY just outside of Buffalo.  I am way older than I would like to admit but that just means that I have been gaming longer then most.  My first game system was a Coleco Telstar (which I still have in the box) and then I moved on to the Atari 2600 (the Heavy sixer which I also still have in the box).  In any event after many years I have lots of vintage systems and plenty of games for them.  I haven't gotten in to the newer system yet but since I have three young boys it's just a matter of time!  Oh and just because I need somthing else to fill up what's left of my time and space I also collect computers ( http://www.old-computers.com/club/collectors/ordis.asp?c=3909 ) and currently have over 125 of them laying about the house as well.

Hello.
I found this website from someone on the Nintendo.com forum. They said this has a better collection host than IGN, so Im trying it out. I dont like the style of the Message Board, so I might not be on here a lot, plus I have many other boards that I am currently active in. I might be around to see if anyone has any info and prices or things like that on any video games.

My name is Jeremy and as I start this out, I can't help but feel like this is a personal ad for dating or something.  :D

On that note, I am 28 and married with two kids.  We live in Phoenix, AZ and I guess I am just as much a collector as I am a gamer.  I'm not sure if there is a fine line there but sometimes I feel like I am looking for games at sales or on ebay more than I am actually playing.  

I love the NES, grew up on it.  But, for gaming purposes I have been playing quite a bit of the Cube lately.  This is a little embarrassing because it seems like such a childish game sometimes but I am currently addicted to Animal Crossing.  I also got my wife hooked on it and then my 4 year old son.  Actually, he is becoming quite the little gamer!  I just picked up a Gamecube game at Sam's Club yesterday called "Tonka Rescue Patrol" and I can't pull him off the thing.  He woke up this morning and was playing it before he got ready for school (Pre-Kindargarten).  On a side note, the Sam's Club here in Phoenix (the one near me anyway) has their GC games for under $13 each!  It's about the cheapest GC games I have seen at a retail store.

That's about it for now, I only belong to a couple forums like this, DigitPress being the other main one.  Actually, the only other forum I go to is animalcrossingcommunity.com which helps me keep track of my AC inventory items and chat with the other Animal Crossing geeks.  Jeez....am I really 28 already!!!  :laugh:

Hi everyone, I'm Alastair, 14 from good old Britian.
Well, Northen Ireland, but its part of the UK, so I say I'm British.
Although I'm young, I'm a dedicated retro gamer, collecting mainly snes, n64, Amiga and Atari games.
My favourite type of game is the LucasArt's adventure game. I don't have a favourite game, but I do love Final Fantasy 4, Super Metroid, Goldeneye and Monkey Island.
I'm my spare time I'm a programmer and artist, and indulge myself by making my own games. And I say w00t a lot.

My ultimate goal is to own my own software company, or failing that, the world's largest taco-shaped Death-RayTM.

w00t!

Hi!

My name is Denis and I'm 33 years old.  I live near Montreal and am a big fan of the Intellivision and the Atari.

I have just started collecting games from both of these fine machines and been having a lot of fun doing so.
My goal is to get all of the Intellivision games before I die...wich, hopefully, will not be soon since I have a 4 months old little guy. |D |D

See you around!

Hi, my name is Dave and I'm a compulsive game collector.   ::)  To support my habit I am currently employed  as a computer geek/programmer.  

Some of you will know me from Digital Press as I was Cuewarrior over there.  

I collect for all systems, but the only complete collection I have is the Microvision, all CIB.  

Currently, I'm a Halo 2 on Live addict, and nothing has grabbed me this hard since Vice City.  

Anyway, I look forward to trading ideas with the rest of you addicts.

I'm Gary, 38, from Waterford, MI. I work in Program Planning for an automotive supplier. I got back into video console gaming at the beginning of 2004 after about an 8 year absence (my last system was a SegaGenesis).

After seeing all the capabilities of the Xbox and playing it at a friend's house I was hooked. It also helped that I had a $50 gift certificate to a local mall burning a hole in my pocket (EBGames got that).

After trading in some old Magic:the Gathering cards that I never used, I used the cash from that to help finance building my XBox library (44 titles at present). I'm very happy to point out that I've paid full price for a game only once (Prince of Persia: Sands of Time@$49.99; which remains unfinished :-/). The rest of the titles I've been able to acquire from ebay, used titles from retail discount bins, special sales, gifts,  using Replay Rewards from Media Play, trade ins, etc.

The game score that I'm most happy I took advantage of was trading in Fable (paid $40 new when it first came out) and getting $36 credit towards Halo 2. Effectively, I was able to play the snot out of Fable for 5 or 6 weeks for the low low price of 4 bucks. Not bad. I was also able to find Disgaea for PS2 for $10 at a local flea market.

My first system was the 2600. Eventually I upgraded to the NES. Then traded that in to get the SegaGenesis. After selling the Sega in '95, I hadn't had the desire to purchase a console until I discovered all the capabilities of the XBox. I haven't looked back since.

My earliest video game memory was going to a bar/restaraunt with my parents and playing a game of pong on a stand up machine with my dad. Yes, I am that old!  |D

Thanks to den68 for introducing me to this site.

Hello,
I'm Zac.  I live in Noblesville, IN, I'm 18 years old, and I am currently a student in high school (hoping to graduate this year).  I've been playing video games since before I can remember.  I just started collecting about a year ago, and at that time I had all the modern systems and a SNES.  Since then, I have amassed a total of around 21 systems, including different models.  I am a big Nintendo and Sega fan, and I like everything else about equally, with the exception of XBox.  I had an XBox, but I sold it right before the release of Halo 2 for $100 simply because I was getting tired of all the hype over games that didn't deserve it (Halo & Fable mainly), as well as the fact that I couldn't find any games I could get into on XBox that weren't multi-platform.  (The money I got from selling the XBox went almost entirely toward Gamecube games. |D)

I'm hoping that this site will provide me with a way to fill my ample amounts of free time, as well as helping me to become integrated into the collecting community.

I'm Chris, 33 from Warwickshire in the UK. I've had loads of computers and consoles and lost/sold them all.
These include Intellivision+Speech Synth and B17 Bomber and Solar Sailor, wish I still had that! I also had ZX Spectrum, Commodore Amiga, SNES, N64, Gameboy, Dreamcast, PS1, Various PC's from 386 on and Grandstand and Tomy 3D handheld.
Currently  I own a Gamecube, GBA-SP and PC
My all times greats include Super Mario Anything, Zelda Anything, Chronotrigger, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, etc.
The games that annoy me most are ones with download content to complete - Skies of Arcadia on DC for example. I don't believe you should ever have to hook to the internet or another piece of hardware to see everything in a game.

Well, I think it's about time I introduce myself ;)

I'm Pieter, 20 years old, and currently studying international Economics at the University of Maastricht, the Netherlands.  I started collecting NES games/accessories & anything else Nintendo related from the era of the NES, when I was about 12 years old and living in the US (California).  After a couple years of collecting, I took a long break, moved to Belgium, and just recently started getting back into the collecting habits a few weeks ago.  I've always liked video/pc games, and it all started with the Amiga 500 when I lived in Germany (it was really popular over there).  I mostly stopped gaming after moving to Belgium, since I'm not much of a solo player...I do like RPGs, but I prefer playing with friends...and since hardly any of my friends are true gamers around here, I don't do a lot of gaming anymore...which really isn't that bad, since it's usually just a waste of time anyways ;)  My interests in collecting at the moment are just to reach some milestones, fill some collections, and get ahold of some nice PAL games, accessories, and all of the pirated stuff that seems to be somewhat common around here ;)

Well, howdy.  If you'll look to your left, you will see that my name is Vladimir.  Nothing to do with that impailer guy, I got my name from some Polish guy that I work with.  by the way, I work at the Indianapolis Zoo.

My favorite system would prolly be the N64, soley for the two Zelda games.  My first system was the N64, but even so I have high respect for older games.  In other words, I know where I come from.  I'm more of the kind of person that plays the games rather than mmaking a huge effort to collect them.  Anime and manga is what I make an effort to collect.

Just a head's up, I fucking hate Xbox and Microsoft.  Don't even get me started.  Everyting else is cool though.

I don't know if it's dumb to reply to this thread with my first post or not, oh well here goes: Amongst my many other hobbies I like to lay claim to I (obviously) collect games. I'm one of those collect them to play them sorts of people. Besides the computer stuff I have about 7 systems and am closing in on 100 games between them all with about 70 of them being NES. I am always trying to grow my collection but there is that money thing which gets in the way sometimes. Being as my collection in realitivly small you may think I am new to the hobby, but I still have my first NES which was one of the earlyer ones and have never gotten rid of anything. I guess I'm just slow. I have been trying to do better lately as I only reciently picked up an Odessy^2 off ebay for all of $2.25.

I will try and do a good job of writing on this fourm as it looks like an intresting place to be, but I have to warn you I have a history of posting little on the net. I basicly like to lurk around and see what everyone else has to say, haha.

I'm a bit far away from most of  you geographically (Central-Europe), but I'm also a fan of video games... and this site is cool, yeah! :D
I'm collecting Nintendo stuff, however I'm only at the very beginning with a few games. (I had several other consoles in the past, but money is a great lord and I had to sell them for other stuff)
I envy some of u (especially ppl in the US), b/c getting NES/SNES games here is a bit hard... fans are hiding somewhere and not willing to share :D
My favs are Zelda, Pikmin, Castlevania, Mario  games, (and to mention a non-Nintendo title) DMC...
Dunno what else to say... I just wanted to have my first post so much ^_^

my name is anthony & i am 27 years old. i am a collector/gamer. i collect mainly for the atari 2600, nes, sega genesis & n64. i love to hit the thrifts, pawn shops, yard sales and any game store. i consider my self more a retro gamer, as i find the newer games not as addictive as the earlier. out of the modern systems, i really enjoy the cube.

here is what my goal is for each system:

atari 2600: as many as i can afford (including label variations)

nes:  i am going for a complete nes (loose w/manual) collection. i need approx 150 more carts to complete my goal.

sega genesis: complete in box collection

N64: complete loose w/manual collection

I have a wife and 2 children aged 2 and 5.  I collect games across all systems but just games I enjoy or rare games I find in the wild.  The only system I feel a desire to collect a complete library of games is for the Dreamcast.

I've been collecting for 7 years but my collection is quites small.  I've had to part it out a few times.

I also have no friends, i'm completely anti-social, i never come out of my house, and my skin is a lovely shade of clear.

I work for a secret undergroud association dedicated to destroying the moral world that is known as PBS television, and their communist influences obviously seen on their popular television shows Sesame Street and Teletubbies.

I also think that lindsey lohan has become butt ugly recently, and thinks she should go hide somewhere until she gets beautiful again.

All that being said, other than working out and getting all the chicks u'd ever imagine, i play some video games.

That pretty much sums up my life.

Hi, my name is Dave, and a lot of you probably already know this.

I am a hardcore Nintendo Fan, and my family has owned every American Nintendo System with the exception of the Virtual Boy and Game Boy Pocket. Right now, my family owns:

1 NES
1 SNES
1 N64
2 Gamecubes
1 Gameboy
1 Gameboy Color
3 Gameboy Advances
1 Gameboy Advance SP
3 Nintendo DSs
1 PS2

If you couldn't tell by the amount of duplicate systems my family owns, I have a rather large family. 5 Brothers, a mother, father, and a dog. I am the oldest. We live in the West Side of Cincinnati, 5 minutes from the Black Perl, Evil Leon, the Webmaster. Currently I am rooming with the Perl and another person for the rest of August.

In the past, I have worked at Paramount's Kings Island as their bitch. I believe my official title when I never came back was Merchandise Location Manager. I ran all the stores in the waterpark, and I was only sent 'on vacation"'once. Nowadays I alternate between quarters of co-op and school. I am studying to become a civil engineer, but more specifically a traffic engineer. That means that all my recommendations will be your headaches in 20 years. In my free time I play frisbee golf, Taiko: Drum Master, Meteos, surf the internet, and as my friends know, sleep. Sometimes I also do contributions to the site known as RF Generation, which has caused the Perl to start refering to me as a member of the Pseudostaff.

I look forward to the playing Mario Kart and Super Smash Brothers Online someday, and I hope I won't be dead when it happens.

That's about it, I only hope that this appeases Nep, since he had disapproval of me not having an introduction.

I have collected over 60 systems and what ever my profile says I have for games  :) .  I have a wife named Shannon hence there's a room for my games and none in the living room.  My favorite system is the Sega Genesis with the Saturn a very close second.  Love the RPG's and Saturn Bomberman (thanks to the Cinci-Classic).

Hi,
Im pretty new to the world of game collecting (I started this summer '05) but have been gaming all of my life. I'm a nintendo geek through and through but lately I've been just grabbing any system that I think is cheap.  I think that the NES is probably my Favorite system but recently I have been focusing more on the 5200 and Colecovision.  
So, since this is supposed to be an introduction, I guess I wil tell you a little about myself...I am 24, married, and father of a 2 y.o. girl.  I am currently a substitute teacher and I am in for an Art Teacher (until at least October).  I graduated college in 2003 with a B.A. in English and have been a substitute ever since (I haven't been able to find a job in my area).  I live in a town called Lucasville, Ohio which is best known for its prision.  (1 1/12- 2 hours south of Columbus). Besides gaming, collecting and being with my family, my favorite thing to do is write.  
Um, thats about it...if you want to know what I have (systems) check my profile.

Hi, I'm not new to collecting, been doing it about 5 or 10 years with my sister, and we're only 18 :)
My favourite console is probably the Saturn, as it is the console I remember having the most fun with. I began collecting because I was always behind with the console races when I was younger. When everyone had playstations I had a master system. But now I have a proud collection of almost! every console. Alongside about 3000 games.
I'm in sixth form college at the moment in the Uk, and will be going to university in a year to study Film production. My sister (who is also my twin) will be doing the same, but a course on video game design.
Collecting is probably up there with my favourite thing in the world. I have spent far too much money getting where I am today.

Hi there, my name's Patrick and I'm from South-East England. I've played games nearly all my life, but never considered myself a collector until recently. It started a couple of years ago, when my mother picked up a huge collection of boxed Game and Watches for under a tenner from a house clearance. Of course, she didn't tell me about them until she'd sold them for a substancial amount on eBay. The more games I play, the more I forget about the Game and Watches, which is more than a good enough reason to collect as many as I can.

Hello everyone, i'm Antonio i live in the netherlands and mine greatest hobby (as i like to call it) is gaming and collecting games. I have somwhere near the 380 games (the gba gb etc not included) and it's still growing like crazy. |D

Sometimes i get lot's of games in and sometimes i just take a break to test/play a game.

Since last year i'm also heavly investing time into sega stuff (got a dreamcast, saturn and megadrive  :D) i now already have about forty dreamcast games,twenty saturn games and about fifteen megadrive games (including 32x and megacd of course).

Mine favourite console would be the N64 because i've got good memory's about that console and i then got really good games like: Zelda orcania of time (got to play this one again sometime) Banjo kazooie/tooie and a bunch of other games who are all classic's in mine eyes.

Hi,everyone.
I'm Andy, 24, from Accrington, which is a small town in North West England. Everyone on here from England will know where it is through a relatively infamous milk advert ran on TV about 15 years ago.

I work in a lovely warehouse selling toilet rolls and other exciting items of cleaning goods, I do the stock control and purchasing which passes the day.

I've been collecting for about as long as I've been gaming which is probably around 18 years, and I've amassed a collection of about 400 games across about 12 systems. I get most of my items from E-bay and there is no particular system I focus on and buy across the board, snapping up anything I see which appears cheap.

Besides gaming I'm a big footy (soccer) fan and go to most Burnley games home and away. This is another hobby, which enjoys taking money off you quite quickly.

I've only ever traded one game in which was WWF Wrestlemania on SNES which I swapped for Super Smash TV.

Anyway I've signed up for this website as I feel I can help a lot with the scans for the PAL side of things, as all of the games I own are PAL and 95% of them are complete (boxed with book).

Hi, I'm Thomas, 23, from MUnchengladbach ('bout 100 km north-west of Cologne) in Germany. I study linguistics at the University of Duesseldorf.
I grew up with the first generation of modern consoles (NES & GameBoy that is) and kept up with Nintendo and Sega; primary collecting their games and consoles.
However, I'M open for multi-platform and don't say no to a good PS2-game either.

My collection has just passed the 100 games mark, most of them SNES. I used to have more, but sold them at the age of (about) 15.

Hi, I'm Josh.  Some of you may recognize me from HardcoreGaming.org (where I'm an admin), Digital Press, and/or CheapAssGamer.

I'm 23 and live in Portland, OR.  I have an NES, SNES (my favorite console of all-time), Genesis, N64, PS2, Gamecube, and a GBA SP.  I own over 400 games and there's a link to a list of the games I own for each of these systems in my signature if you want to check it out.

Anyways, this seems like a cool place.  I don't know why I didn't check it out before, but better late than never, right?

Keep on gaming!

Hello, my name's Kevin.  I'm 21, I've been collecting video games since the late 90s and have tried to collect all of the games that I remember playing as a kid (but of course, finding new... "distractions" along the way).  I'm currently a junior college student here in the Bay Area of California (getting ever closer to San Francisco, actually).  I collect mostly for my NES and my NGPC when I can find them in the wild, but mostly it's for current-gen games that are easy to pick up.  At the moment, the count is at 20 systems (if you count my FamiClone because I have FamiCom games for it) and nearly 750 different titles.

I'm also a writer, working on my own video game project in my spare time named Majestic Games, the whole object of which is to give information to any newer gamers about the hobby and even where to find the games they might be looking for.  I update it when I can.

Hey everyone!  My name is Ken.  I'm 24, nearly 25, and I, like all of you, love video games.  I've only been collecting for about 6 months.  Right now I'm only going after Nintendo NES, but I hope to get them all!

I'm getting married in July on the 8th.  I live in State College, PA, which is where Penn State University is. (Go JOE PA!)  We just bought a house together and we're loving it.  I work for Cingular Wireless, so if anyone needs help, I can do my best :-P  

Anyways, can't wait to talk to you all sometime and thanks for allowing me to share in the community!

Ken

Hello folks!

My name is Danny and some of you might know me from the DP boards, under the same name (Damaramu, not Danny).

Here's a few facts:

I'm about to turn 30 in 4 days.

I've been actively rebuilding the game collection I had when I was in my early teens (that's lotsa Genesis/Snes games, pal.) I hope to add TG16/TurboDuo stuff to the collection down the road.

Overall my game collection is modest, but it's stuff I like and play.

I recently purchased a GBA SP2. I love that damned thing and I've been picking up GBA games like a madman.

That's really all there is at the moment! Maybe I'll see you here in the forums!

Hello all.

My name is Josh and I currently live in Roscoe, Illinois... which is about an hour west of Chicago.  I'm 21 and am working as the sole member of the IT department at a non-profit organization.  I am also attending school full time in order to get my bachelor's degree in computer science. I'm married with two dogs. :)

I found out about this site while posting over at Digital Press.  I've been a member there for a few years and would like to expand my horizions a bit.

I began my career as a game player at 4 years old on the NES.  Since then, I've played just about every system out there (with a few exceptions).  I began a bout with collecting in 2002, but then stopped and sold about 75% of my stuff for cash when I moved in with my girlfriend (now wife).

Now I'm a better financial position and have slowly began to collect once again.  Currently my favorite system is the DS - I play the thing all the time.  All time favorite would have to be SNES though.

Anyway, thanks for providing what looks to be a great community.

I suppose I should post here... and stuff.

Hello peoples. My name is Brian. I'm 27, and I live near Charlotte, NC. I've been gaming since I was 4, and still have my original 2600 and all of my games, so I guess you could say I've been collecting for about 23 years.
I try to keep my collection well rounded, but it still mostly consists of Nintendo and Sega items.

I'm a huge Castlevania freak, and own ALL of the US Castlevania releases CIB (minus Curse Of Darkness and Dawn of Sorrow), and am starting to work on getting the import versions.

My first gaming system that I have memories of is my NES (which at the time was my brother's).  I still have my NES, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, and original Nintendo Game Boy.  I gave my N64, SNES, and Sega to my sister to have in college.  

I love gaming, always have, and have a lot of ideas for what I will do once in the gaming industry.  I am here to make friends that share a common interest in games and just have fun :) Please feel free to IM me on AIM, e-mail me, or pm me here :)

I'm known primarily for my PlayStation collecting, being a variant whore and for being half of the US PSX editiors for Digital Press.  I've also got a hearty PS2, DC, XB, GC and a good number of games for a few other systems.  Hopefully I can help out and learn some new stuff here.

Hi everyone,

My name is Tom (some of my friends call me Tommy). I  just turned 30 this past November , and I have played video games on and off ever since the Atari 2600 days. It was the first sysem I had and although my dad had some old system which had pong type games and a skeet shooting. I don't remember the name of that system . Anyway the Atari was what everyone had back then and I was able to play both the Colecovision adn Intellivision over at friend's houses. I loved the old atari and got many many miles out of itt, but even then kids were not foolish, so when the Nintendo launched back in 85 I had to get ahold of those real arcade graphics! I got the system with the zapper and ol ROB the robot.  

Those were my first two systems and they will forever hold a special place in my heart . They make up the bulk of my "collection" which I started a few years ago mostly trying to recapture the days of old.

I did have a sega Genesis at the end of the run and then I bought a playstation and a nintendo 64 in college the last two I still have. I have since bought a sega genesis and a master system, a couple of super NES, a toploader NES, and a few Atari systems.

I also own an X-box, a Gamecube, and my girlfriend and I have his and hers Game Boy Advance SPs (classic Nes version naturally)

When I am not collecting or playing my games I also like to work out, play basketball, I'm learning how to golf (slowly) and I also love to watch movies (especially martial arts) as I was a cinema major for a while in college.

I have worked in IT as a tech support guy and as a web/graphic design guy, and I still work on some things for money and as a hobby, but for now I am working  with kids as a behavioral specialist to pay the bills while my gf finishes her nursing courses.

Some people might say I am a video game addict or think I am nuts with all the games I have. Well much like I am not an alcoholic, but merely a beer enthusiast, I am also a video game enthusiast. I am happy to have found a place to be at home amongst other  gaming enthusiasts!

I'll be honest the real reason I came to RF is the same as InvadErGII, because IGN's collection system has been redone and I hate it.

I just got into collecting and own around 230 games, not much I know but I hope to build on it.

I am an active member on the digital press forums as Joker T aswell if anyone is intrested.

my other collecting efforts go towards amassing a large blaxploitation film dvd collection. i may be fairly young but pam grier is a godess of her time hehe.

Hey, my name is Dan. I'm 16 years old. And now, for a quick biography:

At the age of six, I ate a ball whole. By "a ball," I mean a sandwich. And I was at the beach. It looked so putrid, with all of its VCR on it. John Kerry grew from the bushes, came out, and went, "Why the long face?" So, I got together a crew of hermits and John Kerries and we went to pour some orange juice.

Anyway, I found RF Generation through Wikipedia and, being quite the video game fanatic that I am, I decided to join. My favorite game of all-time is Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. At the moment, though, I'm completely engulfed in Tales of Symphonia. Must be an RPG phase or something. Anyway, see you all around.

Hey there.

I'm D.W. from Maryland.  21 years old and life long gamer.  I didn't appreciate the value of games when I was younger, and therefor either lost or destroyed a lot of games that would be considered classics today.

As it stands, I have a rather modest collection, with only 9 systems and roughly a dozen games for each, but it's constantly growing, as not a week goes by that I don't find something new to add.

My ultimate goal is to have the largest collection of consoles and games in existance.  At this early stage, my main focus is rare PSone RPGs and the entire Dreamcast game library, though I've been known to stray from the plan more than a few times ;).

Post by: eternalblue81 on June 08, 2006, 04:18:31 PM
Well seeing as my collection is currently featured, I thought it was about time for an intro post. My name's Stephanie, 24, and I've been collecting seriously for around three years now. Before then I had about 15 PSX games and a handful of Genesis and Sega CD games that I got from birthdays, etc.

I tend to gravitate towards RPGs, adventure, and survival horror genres, and love niche music and quirky Japanese games.

Although most of my games are for Sony systems, I have a big fondness for Sega, and hope to one day focus more on my Sega CD, Saturn, and Dreamcast collections.

I'm 22, and live in Greeley Colorado. I draw and play guitar as well as game and collect things.

I also collect comic books, figures (VG and Comic related) and japanese visual rock CD's.

atari 2600
NES
SNES
N64
gamecube
ps2
ps1
gameboy x3
gameboy color x 2
neo geo pocket color
sega game gear

i bought  95% of my collection with my own money, but i dont have a job.  i do, how ever, watch my siblings.  if im up at 8 and none of them go to there friends house, i make $25 a day.  the 3 most wanted systems is a sega genesis (the one i have right now used to be my uncles, he lived with me in the early 90's.  i found this in my attic a few months ago, its  a piece of crap) sega 32x and sega cd drive (model 2) all in the box

Hi guys ( and girls ? )

My name is Jelle , though you'll see me here as "wrestlemaniac" offcourse.

I'm from Belgium, age 20 ( almost 21,next month) and although my main hobby of recent years is pro-wrestling, i will be a gamer for life, litterally grew up with gaming and still playing to this day.

I don't collect anymore ( too busy with the wrestling collection) , but i just like to visit game boards and read about new games or retro gaming,always some nice topics to be read somewhere.

My favorite console is snes and i'm basically a nintendo fanboy  :) only buy nintendo stuff these days.

For those interested in my job, i am a gravedigger.

My name is Jeff and I've been playing games since the 70's and really started collecting in 1999 thanks to the DC.

I've seen the site mentioned before and thought I could always use another site to surf while at work (j/k... sort of). Really I thought I'd sign up to possibly help with the data base, as well as check out the collection tools everyone's talking about.

I tend to be a Sega guy, mostly Saturn and DC, but do have some big N thrown in. I like imports a lot and tend to collect them more along with hand held stuff upto the GBA.

My name is Rodrigo and I have been collecting videogames for over 20 years. I live in Los Angeles, California. I also collect toys and comic books besides games. I have quite a large collection. I am usually posting on DP and sometimes on AtariAge. I also used to post in the now dead gamerzuniverse.net I have chatted with some of you here before. Glad to finally join another board. Hope to start chatting with all the old gamerz posters.

Hello there friendly community people!
First off, my name is Josh, I am 19, I graduated high school in 2005.  
The same year I actually became a big time collector.  
I had a handful of games before I started collecting, I'd say about 100 games or so.  But I have added quite a bit since then and probably have a small collection of about 175-200 games.  Yes, it is small, but I am proud of some of the rare, valuable, and hard to find titles I have.  For the most part now I run around looking for the missing manuals and boxes for my older games that got thrown away through my childhood years.
My favorite consoles/systems are the SNES and PSX.  My favorite game is Suikoden II

I own a Video Game store called Trade-N-Games for over 4 years now "2002" and I know many of the folks on here from the other forums and many are customers of mine. I have gone to the classic gaming shows for many years so I also know alot of you in person.
A little about myself:
 I am a giant collector of almost every system. Most of what I collect is boxed complete games. I am almost done with 2600 all label variations boxed complete. What i have been working on now for the last year or so is my boxed NES collection, I am almost done I need about 35 more boxes. Almost done with 5200,7800,jaguar, PS1,intellivision and colecovision. All done with Sega CD, Sega Master,Vectrex & Virtual Boy. I have a room that is filled with games and systems all the way around.
 I also have all my items listed on my web site www.tradengames.com with actual pictures of each item for sale so if anyone needs anything that you don't see on my site shoot me a PM on any of the message boards.

Hi, I'm Chris and I live just outside of Dallas, TX. I've been a gamer for 20 years now, but didn't really start collecting until about 5 years ago. My favorite games are usually 2D fighters and platformers, but I'll play anything that's good (or at least that I think is good  ;D). Very nice to meet everyone.

Invoker is the name...

I reside in Madison, South Dakota. I am currently pursuing a degree in Computer Information Systems and also a degree in E-Commerce and Computer Security. I am currently employed as a PC technician/ Computer analysis.

I have been playing video games ever since I first played Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo.  I did not start collecting until two years ago. I just realized one day how much I missed my classic Nintendo... and everything has launched since then. I currently have over 300 video games and am working on submitting those into my profile.

Hi all! Newbie checking in... great place you have here! (http://www.jazzopolis.com/~paka/smilies/25_coolguy.gif)

I'm Rebecca, 26, from DeLand, FL (a bit to the west of Daytona). First system as a very young kid was the Intellivision, and though that one is gone over the years got a NES, Sega Master System, Genesis, about every type of Game Boy, N64, and Gamecube. FINALLY got around this month to getting a PS2, so now looking to add PS and PS2 games. My collections are very small; my favorites tend to be classic RPG's. I especially love my GBA SP, partly because of some of the remakes of great classics that have come out for the GBA. In addition to video games, love fishing, golf, watching football, reading, and traveling.

My name is Bryan and I collect nes exclusivly.  I love to trade and over the course of the next week I will get my collection posted to this site.  I also have a lot to trade so I will probably post a thread with that too.

Chat at you all soon.

Hi. I'm Aaron, and I live near Seattle, WA. I was looking for a new place to catalog my collection, then I read about this place over at Digital Press (I'm VG_Maniac there as well).

I've been playing video games since I was 4 or 5. I started out playing an NES and Super Mario Bros. at my cousin's house sometime in 1988. I instantly fell in love with video games and finally got my own NES for Christmas 1989.  Although I have been buying and playing games since then, I didn't really start "collecting" until 2003. Anyway, as I mentioned...I'm mostly here to catalog my games. However, I might hang around the forums a little bit too.

Hi, I'm Tim, I live in Waco, Texas. I was introduced to this place by Captain Nintendo himself. I heard about it for quite some time. I recently started collecting NES games again and I thought this would be a nice place to get into it.

I grew up in the middle of the 80's, my first computer was the C64, my first console system was the Sega Master System. My first NES was in 1987. Overall my favorite systems would have to be, NES, SMS, DC, Saturn, PSX, N64, SNES, N64, TG16, and Genesis. Yet I adore the NES Top Loader by far because of it's sleak design and the fact how solid it's built :) (I dont even mind the RF signal)

These new systems don't really put much in front of me, sure it's tempting to have all the newest stuff. Yet there's a treasure chest of classics awaiting us all. Plus now that some of us are older and wiser about what games we have missed, it's been the greatest decade to come back to it all. Heck to be honest, I never owned a Turbo Grafx 16 before and I hope someday to own one in this time.

My name is Josh and I turn 23 in about a month.

I don't believe I have formally introduced myself on these boards.  most people know me from digitpress, from selling games here and I have been in the collecting scene for nearly eight years (8 years this oct).  I just recently sold off my NES collection to travel to Africa for a month long internship.

Through my years of collecting I somewhat lost touch of the gaming aspect.  In the past three years I have done VERY little gaming, and a lot of collecting and reselling.  I am just about to start fresh and will begin collecting once school gets underway.    I have yet to decide what i will collect.  Something small to start with since my space is limited.  During this time I hope to get back into the gaming aspect and not so much the collecting. 

If you ever need a price check on a complete in box NES game, let me know and I will gladly help you out!

Better late than never I guess.
The name is Cobra Blade,
a South Australian who loves any thing to do with the Sega Saturn!

As a result I have a huge Saturn collection.
Why the Saturn? Sega has been my long time fav, ever since I saw the SMS compared to the NES.
Plus I feel the Saturn is Sega's true moment of glory with true classics, plus nothing else felt so much like an actual arcade at home to me.

Hey guys,
My name is Mark and I'm 22 and a full time substitute teacher in a middle school about 7 miles outside of Boston.  I collect mostly NES games and systems, but branch off into many others.  This looked like a nice place to make some trades and buy and sell some games so I decided I may as well start an account, that and being able to sort my games with the collection tool is great.

Hi, my name is Clint.  I live in texas.  After noticing this thread I realized I'd not posted in it.  Most of my posts will generaly consist of games not currently in the collection database.  It's not that I dont enjoy making posts or reading them from fellow gamers, just that I'd perfer to play more games during my off time.  Hey, we do still play games remember?  I have too large a backlog to finish.  Sadly it's growing at an abnormal rate to the point I doubtfully will ever catch up.  I'm up to the challenge though.  I tend to lean twords the NES and SNES when it comes to systems of prefrence, but I collect anything that I can that interests me.  Well, thats me in a nutshell.

You're not going to believe this, Fuyukaze, but my name is also Clint and I ALSO live in Texas. I'm from the Chicago area, but I currently live in Houston. Wierd, huh? Anyway, I love collecting and playing video games and have been doing so since we first got the ColecoVision in, I guess, 1983 or 84. I guess my all-time favorite system is a tie between NES and SNES, but the DS is creeping up there, as well.

So long for now.

Ok this is kinda odd, but my name is also Clint. I live in southern Illinois, close to St. Louis, MO.  I bought a Nintendo off EBay in 2004 and two games. Double Dragon 2 and Super Mario Bros. 3.  After playing those for awhile I got hooked again and started buying more NES games.
 Before I knew it I was buying SNES, Sega, and Playstation 2 games as well.  Now I just try to get anything I can afford to get. My wife and I don't have much money, but we both love to play games.

Wow, lots of familiar faces around here!

My name's Rob O'Hara, but some of you all know me as Flack. I'm pretty active over at Digital Press where I'm an admin/moderator, write a couple of different articles, and write reviews for both the electronic DP newsletter and their print zine. I'm also a regular at several other forums such as Atari Age, Lemon 64, Particles.org, and others.

I've been doing quite a bit of writing over the past year. I had three articles published in the O'Reilly book Retro Gaming Hacks, had several reviews published in Videogame Collector Magazine, and published my own first book, titled Commodork: Sordid Tales from a BBS Junkie.

When it comes to console games, I've got everything from the Atari 2600 to all the current-gen consoles hooked up. In our upstairs game room I pipe all my systems into a projector with an 8' screen and a surround sound audio system. My son LOVES gaming upstairs with me.

My other hobby is collecting coin-operated arcade games. At last count I had about twenty; some of my favorites include Gauntlet, Q*Bert, Shinobi, Karate Champ and Road Blasters. Oh, and my MAME machine, of course!

I think that about covers it. I'm always looking forward to kicking it with new friends!

Hi, I'm Jimmy and I live in PA. I'm known as Abman on other forums like Nsider and Digitpress.

I signed up for the forum mainly to see if I could get some game boxes and manuals, but it looks like I will enjoy talking here too. I collect mostly for Nintendo systems, my favorite being the NES. But I will play other systems like the Sega Saturn and Playstation.

My favorite game is Super Mario Bros 3 for the NES. It's just a timeless classic that's very fun to play. Some of my other favorites include, Super Mario RPG, The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Super Mario Bros 2, and Grandia II.

I can't really think of anything else to say.

Greetings all - another DP refugee here ;)
I recognise quite a few foks from there and elsewhere, but for anyone who doesn't know me, I'm a UK-based Sega obsessive. I've got a complete European SMS collection, plus loads of variations & US/Brazil/Australian/Japanese/Korean SMS & Mark III games, and am currently searching for the last 100 or so PAL MegaDrive games.
I collect for all other Sega systems too, but aside from the Master System & MegaDrive, it's only really SG1000 & Mark III stuff that I actively search for online.

Hello, my name is Noah. I've had an account here for a long time, but I've never posted over here before. I live in Little Rock, Arkansas where I am a teacher of underprivilidged teenagers. I've been collecting since I was 18 years old (almost 5 years ago!) and I guess that's about it. I appear to be always logged in here no matter what I do so I'll probably try to post more often.

Wow, 3 Clints in a row. Now all we need is Eastwood.
Actualy if I could get my friend to join that'd give us 4.  If I could get this guy I keep running into at wal-mart as well, that'd be 5.  My father would make 6, one of the guests at Shiokaze con would make 7, and the idiot triplets (yes, they were idiots) from college would make it 10.  That's alot of Clint.

Hi everone!

    My name is Nelson, from Puerto Rico.  I had subscribed a long time ago, but didn't posted anything, dunno why.  Feels great to see lots of Digitalpress forum members here.  For games, I like everything but Sega for the most part.  I have a Sega Master System complete set, and I am currently working with some friend from UK(anagrama, cauterize and others :)  )  for the SMS PAL releases.  Looking also titles from Australia, Portugal, Brazil and other regions. 

I am mostly a Sega guy but love my Turbo Duo, GBA, DS, Lynx, Nes, Snes and others.   I enjoy this great site, hope it grows leaps and bounds!

Hi, my name is David, I'm here mostly to learn about a lot of consoles I've never heard of ;) The site looks very impressive! I've got a lot of media about one specific console, and it's not the most popular/best one for you I guess: Philips CD-i. However, it's the one I grew up with and to me it's a great system. So, I'll have a look to make the database more complete ;) I'm especially interested in the huge pile of unreleased prototypes it got, you can read about those here: http://cdii.blogspot.com
Most of my items are box shots, both front and back, and some videos about games, but I didn't find a place for them (well, yeah, Youtube). seeya :D

Greetings,

  My name's Ken and I'm located in the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina. I'm a long time vid-game aficionado hailing back to the days of Pong.  I obsessively make every effort to obtain as much retro goodness as I can get my hands on. I also harbor a sizable collection of 8 and 16 bit computers. A lot of gamers are really missing out on some great titles on a myriad of old systems like the Atari 800, C64, Vic-20, Apple ][, Tandy CoCo, ect.
 I really want to get some more international systems like the Sinclair Spectrum +2, Amstrad  CPC 6128, Acorn BBC, ect. At present the only foreign system I own in a Japanese made Sega 3000. The main barrier to that being the excessive shipping costs to get them here.
 I only play vintage games, not just out of choice but of necessity. Sadly, I'm one of those unfortunate ones that suffer motion sickness from the 3D imaging on all of the newer games. The most modern systems I have are the PS1, Sega Dreamcast and N64, of which most of the games are unaccessible to me. I got them all very cheaply so I figured it would be worth having them and hunting down the few 2D games that are available for them.

The url is: http://www.arqueologiadigital.com.ar. By the way, i started to read this forums for Speedy_NES (who is also registered on my site) and i didn´t know he is a moderator here!. Well, what else can i say?, i love retrogaming and i´m an active collector too. I hope i could enjoy, read, share and learn on this forums. Sorry if my english is not too good.

Welcome to RF Generation! No worries if your English isn't necessarily perfect, heck, most Americans don't even have perfect English. You might even find some English speaking members who sound like complete and utter nonsense. (Well, perhaps just one)

I don't know how many active Spanish Speaking members there are, but our previous webmaster was quite fluent in Spanish. He even went to Peru twice, and probably would have defected there had he not passed away.

Welcome to the site, and I hope you enjoy your stay here.

Hi, My names Jon and I'm 19. I live in Minneapolis Minnesota. I've been gaming since I received my first NES when I was 4. You might say I've been collecting for that long because I still have it.  I've been focusing collecting for about a year now.I have only 9 systems and about 108 games. My favorite series of games is Castlevania although only by a bit. My fav system would probably be the SNES. ;D Ummmm what else. I currently work in a Cub Foods store but I'm thinking of going into school for accounting. I have been going out with my girl friend, Arkisha, for 3 years now. And thats about it, Thanks!

Hey everyone, just recently discovered this site and I reckon it's a great resource.

My name's Dave, I'm 24 and from England (North Yorkshire if anyone else is from my neck of the woods) My first gaming experience came from my Dad's BBC Microcomputer when I was 7 or 8. I got a NES when I was 9 which was probably when I REALLY got into gaming.

Currently I'm building up my collection of complete NES games and thinking about doing the same for the SNES. As far as retro consoles go I've got a NES, SNES, Megadrive, Gameboy, Game Gear and N64...next buy will prob be a SMS.

Hi everyone, I've been reading the forums for about a month or so, but finally got some time to actually introduce myself. I'm Wout and I live in Belgium.

I've got every Nintendo console released over here as far as I know (well, except for the Pocket GB, and the redesigns of the GBA and DS).

My goal is to start a complete collection of N64 CIB PAL games. I'm relatively new to retro, and I'm having some money issues right now, but as soon as I can focus myself on it, I'll be starting collecting much more :D

Ive already been here for awhile but still haven't officially introduced myself. I've been collecting since I've been gaming, and that would be in 1990 when my parents bought my brother and I a Genesis. Altered Beast was my first game, but ever since then I spend most of my extra cash on Videogames (and/or Movies/Books/Musical Instruments...) The key I have found to collecting is never get rid of anything you don't have more than one of and currently I have a pretty admirable collection ranging from the Odyssey 300 (And an Autographed Photograph of Ralph H. Baer, the man who invented Pong and thus started the RF Gen) up to the last gen systems since I am still a poor college student who can't dish out $600 on new systems and games.

I'm a big RPGer, games are great if they have a great story, but honestly I will play anything and that will be apparent if you take a gander at my collection. I was introduced to this site from Samada, and you will be seeing plenty of me in the future ^^.

Hm, maybe I should do this, yes?

I started playing games back in the NES days, and haven't stopped since. Favorite genres are RPG's, Fighters, Action-Adventure, and Sims (Dance Dance Revolution, Guitar Hero). Here's my timeline of systems, a [c] next to what I own right now:

NES-->Genesis-->SNES-->PlayStation-->Dreamcast-->PS2[c]-->Gamecube-->Wii[c]

Other than that, I'm weird and quirky.

Hi folks
          My names Andrew and I'm Staffordshire England.  I've always had a place for the Megadrive/Genesis years and still do. What really push me to become obsessive was the Nintendo Wii's virtual console.  Now I'm trying to build up a classic Sega collection has in some cases it's cheaper to have the actual original hardware.

I some cases as I saw Gunstar heroes up town where I live for £20.  :o

My biggest nightmare so far is trying to get a cable for my 32X that went from the Megadrive to the 32X.  I've looked everywhere for a place to buy one and had no luck.

Good choice. ;)

You're unlikely to find a 32X cable on its own but sometimes there are "dead" 32Xes on ebay that have the cable and usually go a lot cheaper than working ones.

I guess I must've missed this thread.

My name is Six, and I've been a gamer for an awfully long time. My first game was the cassette-based Bedlam for the TRS-80 Colour Computer; my first online game was Compuserve's Megawars on the same system. Looking back, I see those two experiences as watershed moments in terms of my normal social life, which is to say I wasn't going to have one. I didn't actually start collecting games until a few years ago, when I realized that the difference between a art afficionado and Peter Pan Syndrome was just a matter of terminology. I found that transitioning from man-child goof-off to serious collector was relatively simple and involved little more than telling people I'm a collector.

I am a PC gamer, exclusively and rabidly. Believe it or not, I have never owned a console, and hopefully I never will. I enjoy belittling console gamers for their crappy controllers, technological ineptitude and sexual inadequacy. Which reminds me, your girlfriends - yes, all of them - say hello.

My name is Dustin, I'm 22 and from Southern California, and I've been a dedicated Nintendo fan ever since my older brother got an NES.  Shortly after that I got my first (and best) system, the SNES. 

For a few years now I've enjoyed the fun (and expensive) hobby of collecting games.  Presently I have every US Nintendo and Sony system from the Virtual Boy to the PS3 and lots of games to go with them, but all of my retro stuff is in storage until I can muster up enough money to buy a house..

My favorite games of all time are the SNES RPGs with Chrono Trigger at the top of that list, but I love almost all the old SNES and NES games.

Eventually I'd like to try and program old style video games, but that's probably a long ways off..

Anyway if you want to talk about any of that stuff message me, I'm always open to talk

Hi everyone.

I'm new to collecting. I started around February, I bought a Virtual Boy off ebay.

Since then I've gotten a

5 Virtual Boy Games
NES
44 NES Games
3DO FZ-1
4 3DO Games
Sega Genesis (Model 1)
15 Genesis Games
An extra Nintendo 64 (Was Free)
Nintendo 64 Expansion Pack
2 Nintendo 64 Controllers
20 N64 Games
10 SNES Games
SNES Mouse
2 Wii Games
4 DS Games

I don't have much compared to many of you, but I do not plan to stop collecting.

I guess it'd be a good idea to finally introduce myself. I've done this on a few sites I venture to often and a bit of my info of course has changed over the years so what the heck, why not. By the way, I don't know how the site statistics work out but I've done a good amount of lurking in the past year while logged in so it looks a bit off.

But anyhow, the name's Matt as quite a few may already know and I'm 22. I've been into console gaming since my childhood but didn't begin really buying games until around 4 years ago. I decided to purchase games I had played on emulation and stock my shelves with them to the point my parents go insane. There are currently more than 1000 games in my collection but I have no plans to really go for quantity as my tastes are changing and I'm turning into a direction of quality and personal favorites but I don't plan on making quick and dramatic changes, more of a slow progression. However, currently I'm wanting a complete (CIB) collection of licensed domestic Saturn and Atari 5200 games because they are my favorite systems. The units I own are mostly main-stream and easy to find because this is a laid back hobby of mine and I prefer not to fork out tons of bucks to high-bid eBay auctions but I will shell out the money on games locally I must have. ;)

Taking a step back from consoles I do collect PC games, though I don't have any near the amount some other may have and it doesn't compare to my console stuff. My alternate universe of computer gaming (which ironically I spend more time playing) is filled with classics and modern games. I specifically bought dual monitors earlier this year just to play RTS games over both and it opened a new light on those that supported the resolution. If Starcraft II takes advantage of this setup I will be stoked but Supreme Commander, Cossacks, Age of Empires, Command & Conquer and many other RTS games work quite well with dual support so it won't be a heart break.

So now taking a step to the side (giving you a workout) I have a bunch of arcade boards and parts in my attic at the moment. I received them a few months ago and have plans to get knee deep into arcade goodness over time and build my own cabs to host these classics. A 6-slot Neo Candy Cab would be a nice addition down the road but that's a different story. I've been slowly progressing at plans to create a local arcade/pc/console organization involved with gaming guilds and restoration but it's been rough with lack of participation of local gamers. There have been some on-line responses and a few local game store owners wouldn't mind helping out a bit but it's still in its infancy and we'll just have to wait and see what happens.

Some other interests/hobbies of mine include movies, anime, music and software engineering. I buy movies on DVD but anime can come on any format I have a player for (VHS/DVD/LD). Some of my favorite animes are Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Love Hina and Lost Exile though there are numerous others I enjoy. Generally older series I pickup on VHS since it's really cheap but if a DVD compilation pops up I'll buy it. I only have 1 movie on LaserDisc but I've tried to get a few others on eBay (local scene is dead) but got out-bid last second (go figure). For music I buy anime and game soundtracks on CD at pawn/thrift stores if they're to things I like. One of my DJ buds has some game music on record which kicks ass, unlucky for me I mainly find 1960's-80's records and I pick up most I find in great shape that appears it'd play without any problems. Lastly I'm a CS major currently in my senior years at a local university so programming runs through my blood. I've been writting software since I was 12 and wrote some games through middle and high school, sometimes selling the games for lunch money. I designed many clones of Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Night Driver, Tron and various other games but also made a few originals that were addictive to classmates. Due to that I of course followed the field and hope to one day create a local game company.


Welp, that's a good bite-sized overview of what attracts me here and to games. I plan to go back through my game collection and posting them to my web domain in my sig in addition to updating my list on here since it's outdated and I never completed it in the first place. I've slown down so much in adding new games to my collection it's the best time but due to work and school it'll be yet another timely process. Any questions, comments or random stuff just lemme know.

My name is Alex and I live in Austin, Texas.

I enjoy computers and video games. I like Action/Adventure, Platforming, RPG, and shooter games. My favorite game of all time is Super Metroid. The most engaging and thrilling game ever. I also like the Final Fantasy, Sonic, and Elder Scrolls series. I collect games, go to school etc.

Favorite system is the Sega Genesis. Streets of Rage, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Super Hang-On are great games. I also love the Arcade games, especially Galaga.

I like this site and plan on being active.

Thank you all for the welcomes.

The 16-bit era is probably my favorite gaming era. The games were flat out outstanding and the fieriest console war between Nintendo's SNES and Sega's Genisis. Lots of classics that helped to shape the future of gaming. I never get tired of those games I mentioned and plenty of others from that era.

Nice to see someone from Texas who likes classics.

Hi, I dont think I have posted in here yet.  Im gorez, I live in Birmingham, Alabama --soon I will be moving to Austin, Texas most likely, because that is where my girlfriend currently resides.  I found this website quite awhile ago, probably 1-2 years ago through seeing it at Digital Press.  But I never really got into the forums of this website just really used it for the game database so I could have a catalog of my games online.  But I plan to stop lurking around and actually start posting.   

Such a great website and I feel like I already know most of you just by reading posts and blogs.  I see now everyone can post blogs, so I will probably start mine up beginning of 2008.  See you around!

Hello!

First-timer here but long-time veteran of other hobbyist forums.  Just found this place after trying to find an online database for my game collection.  Looks like I found a good one!

Long-time gamer, since a wee lad in 1977 when we had a Pong set with the three switches (hockey and handball/racketball also).  Have been gaming ever since.

I have the following consoles:  Atari 2600, NES, Game Boy, Sega Genesis, SNES, Sega CD, Virtual Boy, Sega Saturn, Sony Playstation, Nintendo 64, Gameboy Color, Sega Dreamcast, Playstation 2, Gamecube, Game Boy Advance,  and Xbox. 

By far my two favorite systems are the SNES and Dreamcast.

I have a relatively modest collection of 340 console games, which I am in the process of entering into my collection here.

Looks like a great community, hope to be able to contribute in some way.  From what I've browsed so far these are very friendly forums compared to others I've seen.

Hi, I'm Robert, been gaming for pretty much all my life. My first console was a Nintendo 64. I played my friend's PlayStation, and my cousin's Sega and Nintendo consoles. My friend then got a Dreamcast, so I was pretty up to date. I'm a big Nintendo fan and always have been, although we sold our N64 for a Playstation 2. I regret that, but we got another one. I've now got an Atari 7800, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, 2 Gameboy Colours, 2 Gameboy Advances, Nintendo DS (Big Nintendo Fan), PS2, XBOX, Master System and Megadrive. I think I might be getting an MB MicroVision which is pretty rare.

Since then I've gotten: NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Gameboy, GBA, NDS Lite, SMS, Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast, Nomad, TG16, PC Core II, Region Modded Duo-R, Playstation, PSP, Xbox, Xbox 360. Everything bot the Gameboy is in my current collection.

Hey everybody! My name is Darren and I'm a 33 year old video game addict living in Texas!! I mainly collect systems, but recently have started looking towards completing libraries for some of the more common systems (I'm close on several, Sega CD an$ SMS in particular). I've got a huge appetite for the more obscure systems. My ultimate goal is to have at least 1 example of every system released in the US along with several that may not have been released. I've got pretty much all of the big ones out of the way, so now it's just waiting for nice examples of what's left to come along with the right price tag. 

I also have a fairly big collection of arcade machines, sitting at 30 or so right now. I've slowed down on the arcades in favor of the consoles in the past few years though. Much easier to store and the maintenance is considerably easier!!

Hey everyone, Eliott here. Just started up on the site and have to say that I am glad I did find it. I havent been collecting long, but what I do have is a start. For now, I am mainly collecting consoles, with the added game here and there. I try to find the occasional rare or unique one, without putting too much a damper on the pocket. It would be going alot better, as in collecting, but I suffer from Kidney failure, and funds arent coming in like when I could work. So hopefully my start is good enough for some and if all gets better in the future, I can continue on my efforts.

Hey all, my name is Matthew, and I live in Ontario Canada. I'm 23 years old, married, and have been collecting games for the past 5-6 years or so. I don't have a huge collection, as I am pretty picky about the condition. For example, I don't like loose cartridges, I only buy CIB games that are in mint condition. I have no problem with loose carts, I just prefer complete games personally.  :)

I'm glad that there is a site like RFG out there, it's nice to see there are like-minded game collectors from around the world here. Hopefully I will have my whole collection listed here soon, I'm still in the process of organizing. About half my collection is up now, I'll take pictures when my organization process is complete.

Hello, my name is Jes and I'm addicted to video games and game collecting. (sounds of everyone chiming "Hello Jes...")

I've been collecting video games off and on for over ten years, though my collection was stolen a few years back (including Panzer Dragoon Saga and most of the TG16 CD Games  :'( :'( :grrr: :grrr:) and I've just in the last few years gotten back to a 'respectable' collection (hopefully I'll get to replace PDS and some of the Duo Stuff one day...)

I live near Erie, PA and once ran a little mom and pop game chain called Endless Entertainment.  I now work a day or two a week at GameStop :evilsad: just to stay in touch with the industry (and discount.)  I mainly stay at home and raise my two sons, one of which is less than two weeks old :D

Still uploading my collection piece by piece, not looking forward to putting in all my NES/SNES/Gen stuff (my favorite part of my collection, and about 1800+ pieces together) but I'll get there, with time.

I'm not really a 'l33t' collector, as most of my cartridge collection is just the cart (good labels, of course) except Sega Gen, because those old plastic boxes actually last.  99.99% of my cd/dvd games are complete, though, and I've got a few nice additions I'm mildly proud of. 

Lots of peeps come and hang out at our pad and in any given weekend we'll tear up anything from pong to Halo.  We just play to have fun.  My gamertag is also Slackur, but due to the eratic nature of househusbandry, I have it set to "always appear off" so I can play for 15 minutes without responding to 20 messages  :razz:

Anyway, feel free to message me just to chat, though I can go for awhile without checking so please be patient :P

And as for pictures of my collection, while about 65% is out and on display, we're house hunting, so hopefully in another year or two we'll have a Room 'o' Doom to show off.  Someday... 8)

Yeah, the good ol' C64 was the first game machine "ahem, computer" I cut my teeth on.  Nothing like a good game of Necromancer, Crossroads I and II, Threshold, BC Quest for Tires/Grog's Revenge, Sabotuer, Standing Stones, etc...ah, memories :drool:

Hello to all the new people I missed.  Slackur, the C64 ruled!  I loved that system, err computer.  The Vic-20 is where I started out, though.  I love the 5 adventure games they had!

My name is Mike and I'm coming to you live from the province of Nova Scotia! I was originally born in New York State where I was brought up in a fairly conservative, anti-gaming family. However some of my fondest early memories are from visits to my Uncles where I would spend the entire visit on his NES. I wasn't allowed any games however, and remember hitting up classic games like RE Lee Civil War General and Lords of Magic in my youth (two of my favourite all time games)
Later on in my mid-teens, and when I was living Nova Scotia, I convinced my mother to let me purchase a Sega Genesis at a yard sale. Of course, I was hooked. After a half a year of excessive nagging, and money saving, I purchased my first new console, a beautiful PS2 slim. Even though newer games were fun, I found myself consistently downloading roms for old NES and SNES games, particuraly RPGs.
Now that I have moved out and started my first year of college, I have started collecting NES games. After a bit over a half a year of collecting, I now sport roughly 150 NES games. Currently my list is in semi-outdated state, but I have been meaning to, and will, update it and post it soon.
I look forward to trading and talking to you all, and hope I'll frequent this as much as nesforums!
Cheers from Nova Scotia,
Mike

Nice to hear from a fellow Maritimer. Video Game collectors are hard to come by in the maritimes, though I have made contact with a few "hardcore" enthusiasts, but only in Halifax. The largest collection I've seen locally was around 400 games, and that was purely NES. Despite the lack of open collecting, there must be a few who remain little contact with other local collectors, and people seem to buy up any games before I get half the chance.

Yeah I know a few other semi-serious collectors in our region but not many. Since there is so little to be found in the wild most have to use eBay like a crutch but that means more often than not US games instead of Canadian ones.

Last time I hunted for games in Halifax it felt like sharks picked the bones clean of every store I went too, best results I got was from Value Village in Bayer's lake but even that was disappointing.

Hey whats up everyone. My name's Al, I'm 27. I have a wife and a 10 month old son. I'm a NJ licensed Home Improvement Contractor, trying to support us all and the house on a sole income.
 I'm not strictly any type of system collector but I search mostly for Nintendo NES, but I have Atari and Coleco Vision as well.
  Since we're on more of a tight budget with the economy taking a crap, I'm looking to do more trading and less buying. But, If you got it and I need it...I'll probabley buy it anyway. Lol

Hope to get the chat with some of you soon.

Hey guys,
 Im a 23 year old collector. I havnt really focused on completing a collection for any system in particular (yet). I mainly just get games that appeal to me for anything from NES to PS3. Not really anything before NES even though I have a few Magnavox Odyssey games (I dont even know where they came from). I did however grow up with Nintendo so I do have a slight Bias for the NES/SNES/N64.

I live in Northern Canada and have very little access to any retro gaming stores with the exception of a few local pawn shops. Im a huge Judas Priest fan and if anyone wants to chat old-school metal or games im up for both. I've been collecting quite regularily the last few years but it might slow down to a crawl this year because of an expanding family and possibly a new home.

Greetings, the name's Kirsty, aka Sprite. Been collecting for a few years now, but only things that appeal because I have precious little money (and where I live only stocks brand new stuff most of the time).

Won't go on too much as I don't know how much room is left on the PSP's text editor, but let me say how happy I was to find this site. I'd been looking for ages to find a comprehensive one!

Hi all

I'm Kev, 35, from the UK.  I've been collecting now for about 15 years.  My collecting leans towards low prices rather than quality so the majority of my collection is sourced from local boot sales, charity shops and the retro bargain bin of the local game stores.  Collecting on a budget also means that completing a collection for a particular system is usually an unreachable goal, so I'm content with spreading myself thin over multiple system.

In addition to console gaming I am an avid pen & paper roleplayer and board game player.

Hi, I found this site when I was looking at other classic game sites, and found some links here. I was looking for an online collection cataloging tool. I was disappointed with IGN, especially since they changed it a couple years ago. Ideally I want something like Boardgamegeek.com, but for video games. I figure once I've used this a bit, I'll post a ton of suggestions of what I like that BGG does in your collection forums, those guys have really nailed the game collector website, but theirs is dedicated for board games.

I made thread about my collection over on assembler games (they are really the only site I've found with a dedicated forum for collection threads) : http://assemblergames.com/forums/showthread.php?t=18429

My collection here is probably a little over halfway done uploaded. I've got a long way to go.

Hello everyone! My name's Jake and I'm 27.  I was born in upstate NY, grew up in Cincy, OH (so I like my Skyline!), moved to Houston after completing my Chem E degree and am now in Muscat, Oman (on a temporary work assignment - Al slam Aluikum to all my arab friends out there). 

While I'm on assignment most of my gaming collection is in storage in Houston (think the end of the Raiders of the Lost Ark). As you may expect the gaming scenes not real big in Oman, but periodically get care packages sent in to keep me up to date. 

I found this site while looking to see if there was a sequel to the Video Game Bible - great guide. I've never tried to complete a full collection for a system but do have most systems and few gaming jems.  I'm more into it for the experience so if someone say's you have to try such and such a game, I usually seek it out - for example Snatcher (play it - it's great).

Glad to meet you all.

By the way, if your in/near Cincinnati, Ohio check out Game Junkie - awesome independent gaming shop.

Well, here we go. My name's Julian, and I'm from Aschaffenburg, Germany, a nice city in the state of Bavaria, near the border to the state of Hesse (Hessen in German).
I'm 21 years old, and currently, I am about to finish the final exams called "Abitur", which is somewhat similar to a high school diploma or the associate degree of a US college; and it's the best school-leaving certificate you can possibly receive here. My exams consisted of written examinations in English, History and Mathematics as well as an oral examination in Spanish, with my specialisations being English and History.
The languages I am capable of understanding and speaking are German, English, French and Spanish - well, and perhaps Latin, too, but I doubt that I could actually speak Latin, since all we've been doing for the last couple of years were translations into German, so I think that I can at the very least understand a text written in Latin.

The last two years in my life have been rather complicated and pretty sad, if you will. Until early 2006, everything was just fine. I received good marks at school, I overcame my shyness and made more friends, and I had a beautiful and kind girlfriend. But then, in April 2006, my dear father suddenly died one Saturday morning, most likely because of an embolism in his lungs which caused a heart attack that killed him instantly. I could only find him lying in the bathroom, dead, and there was nothing I could have possibly done for him except for calling the ambulance and my mom...perhaps you can imagine that it was quite traumatizing, and ever since then, I've been suffering from terrible depressions that are still bothering me to an extent. My marks at school worsened, I lost my girlfriend, and life just seemed dark to me. To add insult to injury, I almost died myself earlier this year, because of an embolism in my lungs, too. I actually went to school for an entire week in this condition, and the doctors told me that I was lucky to have survived. At least, though, I am beginning to feel better again, mainly due to some of my beloved hobbies. ^^

You won't be surprised to hear that collecting video games is among my treasured past times, even though my collection is still rather small - after all, I only began collecting consciously a while ago, even though I've been playing video games ever since 1993.
My favorite genre definitely is the Japanese RPG, and while my favorite among them is difficult to pick, I have to settle for Grandia - a magical experience for me, and one of my first RPGs. But except for First Person Shooters, tactical shooters or American Sports (sorry, but as a German, soccer is my passion. ^^), I am open for every genre.
Apart from video games themselves, I also like to collect old video game magazines, with my favorite being "MAN!AC", the oldest German video game magazine that still exists (ever since 1993) - btw, their bonus DVDs are terrific, combining serious reviews with a great sense of humor, and of course, there are some cool specials as well, i.e. a monthly video game "hall of shame" (for instance, their NeoGeo hall of shame consists of Andro Dunos, Power Spikes 2 and The Legend of Success Joe).
Apart from that, I also have a passion for soccer (my favorite club is "Eintracht Frankfurt", though I also have a keen interest in international soccer, for example qualifying campaigns for World Cups or European Championships of the past, or even the African Cup of Nations) as well as for movies, since my dad had a huge collection of DVDs and VHSs (several thousand, I'd say), and for some reason, I have this weird interest in bad movies, which is why I love "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (best.show.ever. next to the Simpsons and South Park, of course). My favorite franchise definitely is Star Wars, and I have to say that I practically love all 6 of them equally and for what they are, and for having provided me with countless hours of fun and escapism, and I admire George Lucas for having realized his vision.
Lastly, I have a great interest in history, specifically the 19th century/early 20th century, and the Prussian Empire in particular (the most fascinating historical figure, by the way, is - in my opinion - Emperor Wilhelm II. of Prussia...I even held a 45 minute presentation about him at school, which earned me mark A ^^).

Whew, sorry if that was a bit too long, but sometimes, I can't seem to keep things short...ahem. ^^

It's Skyline Time

Welcome to the site, we do have a pretty large Cincinnati contingent here (2 of 4 directors are from the city), and Fuyukaze is from Houston. I think I speak for most Cincinnatians when I say that we love our Skyline (and LaRosas, and Graeter's and every other Cincy Favorite). So, Welcome!

Also, Game Junkie does have a pretty large following amongst Cincinnati RF Genners. I've never been there, but the people who have love it.

Lastly, great Screenname. Let the games begin!


Well, here we go. My name's Julian, and I'm from Aschaffenburg, Germany, a nice city in the state of Bavaria, near the border to the state of Hesse (Hessen in German).

Wilkommen und Guten Tag oder Abend oder Morgen! (I have the highest intentions of someday being proficient in German). It's a pleasure to have you on the site. You live really close to Frankfurt. One of my great (or great-great) grandfathers was a stowaway from Frankfurt am Main. I have a pretty large interest in German culture and German immigration to my hometown. (Cincinnati was one of the major centers of German Immigration in the 19th Century).

Sorry to hear about your losses in the last few years. 2006 was a bad year for me as well. I lost one of my better friends (http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/about.php?action=memorial), my grandfather, and my mom. I hope bright days lie ahead for you.


I hope you all enjoy your stay at RF Generation! We're pretty laid back, and we try to have fun!

Here's another new young person for you all to enjoy/hate/whatever you choose!

I'm Mr. Ksoft, I'm 15, and I have really gained an interest in collecting games recently.
Besides picking up game after game, I am trying to develop my own retro platform game (though it's going to take a while) and I write music.

So, I'm going to hang around here now.  I don't really know how to conclude this post well.  *shrug*

Yes, it is!  Not only do I realize there are people as crazy (and crazier) as me about collecting these, BUT it's also got a brilliant tracking system so that I now have a list of everything I have at my fingertips.  'tis good for keeping a disorganized person like myself organized.

Welcome to all the new blood.
Best of luck with your game Mr. Ksoft
It will take a while but hang in there, I'm currently developing a Mac game and know how time consuming it can also be.

Hello new people and welcome to RFG.

Some of you are young so I'll try not to scream too much about you being kids and not wanting you on my lawn.

Still, hope you come to enjoy the site.  It's a nice little place I like to think of as my 3rd home.

haha i didnt find this thread until about 2 weeks after i started posting on this forum xD

Hi, I'm Game Freak (yes i did steal the name from Pokemon.)  The name suits me quite well.  I'm 15.  My family has 517 video games.  429 of them are mine.  I have Atari 2600, TRS-80, NES, Genesis, SNES, N64, PS1, PS2, GameCube, Wii, Game Boy, GB Pocket, GBColor, GBA, GBA SP, GB Micro, and a Nintendo DS.  Now i understand you guys are going to say "why not refer us to your collection?"  WEll, its because i have not finished adding the collection, and i dont really care to x_x i already spent 2 years working on my collection by myself. first two versions in Word, then in Excel, and now in Access.  I hope to make many friends here.  And no, i am NOT a Nintendo fanboy.  I hate Nintendo's business model today, WiiWise.  I dont get many of todays games cause they're just too darn expensive.  Yes, I do have Brawl, no Im not Brawling anyone.  I do not like Brawl that much, i think Melee is better. 

With that hugearse paragraph, i will say hello all!  im glad to be here.
oh, and for reference, i found this place through Wikipedia, which i spend a lot of time on x_x

Hi, I'm Tom, 19 years old, from Belgium.

I've played videogames since I was about 5 years old. First game I played was Castle Wolfenstein 3D, it came with our computer...I liked it but I was scared of the dogs  :D

I played videogames through most of my youth but my parents were a big limiter of the amount of games I could have/play.
My first console was a PS2 (shame), my parents refused to give me a console until then, so I could only play on the PC or at friends.

Recently I've "discovered" eBay and grew an interest in retrogames. I have an Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Sega Master System, Sega Mega Drive (all bought this year) and of course a PS2. I'm not sure how many games I have, but I'm guessing it's around 100-120. Lately that number has been expanding rapidly because of all those cheap games you can find on eBay.

Anyway, that's enough for an introduction of myself, I think...


I hope to meet a lot of fun people here who share my hobby(ies). Peace.

No way! What coincidence finding someone else who likes video games too on a .... videogames forum :) just kidding.

I see you're collecting N64 (in your signature). How many more games till you have them all? And how many N64 games are there, actually?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: logical123 on July 15, 2008, 06:33:59 PM
Well, I'm at about 12% complete, and there are about 300 or so games, including variants.  :P

I'm also going for a CIB 7800 collection.

That's still quite a long way to go, you have like 35 N64 games. More than me though, I don't have any :P But that'll change...The next console I'm buying will probably be a N64.

What's your favorite console? (just a question :))


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: logical123 on July 17, 2008, 04:51:31 PM
My personal favorite would be the Sega Genesis/CD/32X combo. I consider it one console (just kidding!)  :laugh:

I don't have a favorite, but my top 5 in no order are Genesis, NES, 7800 (Because that's a 2600 & 7800, backwards compatibility rocks!!), Sega CD, and SNES. But I like pretty much all consoles. Another great console is the PS2. But the N64 is a relatively easy console to collect for and so is the 7800, because of it's small library of games.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Sirgin on July 17, 2008, 04:58:25 PM
I see. But yeah, getting all games for PS1 or PS2 must be really hard.

Right now I'm not really collecting any games. I'm trying to get my hands on all the consoles I want (which are basically all major consoles, so no stuff like the NeoGeo) After that, I'll probably look for the best titles on each system, before I'd consider getting ALL games for one system. :)

I should probably introduce myself formally; I found this forum via a link from another site (I can't for the life of me remember what it was) after trying to find a collection organizing tool.  I fell in love the moment I started to create my collection here.

I've really just started 'collecting' this year; although I've had many consoles when I was younger (atari(s), nes, snes, n64, gamecube, genesis 1, genesis 2, saturn, ps1, ps2 -- wow, my mom was AWESOME!)) I had sold them all as "I would never play them again".  I really REALLY regret my decision so I'm trying to get back to where I was although it will never really be the same.  I have a smaller collection with mostly 'next-gen' consoles/games (including the stupid Wii which I regret buying) but am working backwards slowly.

I plan on sticking around here and hope to bring a few friends over from other forums as everyone here seems to be helpful and full of good deals!

PS:  My name is Ryan, I'm 27, live in Massachusetts and I'm a woman.  Sweet.

Welcome Ryan to RFG.  Glad that you found us and that the collection tool hit the mark for you (as it did me when I first joined).  The forums you will find as welcoming as this 'Introduce..' thread. 

Welcome aboard!


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Cobra on July 18, 2008, 05:58:43 PM
Hey Ryan, I also learnt the hard way you should never sell of your system, even if at the time or for a while after it feels like you'll never play them again. Because in truth, they'll never make games like those again and some time down the track you'll regret it.

I hope you are enjoying your stay here at RF Gen.

Post by: Sirgin on July 18, 2008, 06:26:44 PM
Welcome Sirgin, I hope you enjoy your stay :)
Thank you very much, Cobra :) I have a feeling this is a nice, friendly forum. (Instead of one where all threads all 200-posts discussions between a couple of people whining over the fact whether a game is good or not)

I like the fact that this forum has a great emphasiz on collecting aside from purely playing games. I am kind of a nostalgic person myself (everything was better X-number of years ago :P) so it's nice to find a forum where history has a place too, instead of focussing so hard on what's to come.

Yeah, never sell anything...unless you're 100% sure.
Today I realised I've sold my original Game Boy. Not the end of the world you might think, but it was the (ugly!) Manchester United edition, which seems to be "rare". How rare, I've got no idea. Still a bit sad that it's gone :(


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Cobra on July 21, 2008, 07:46:04 PM
Yeah, I also got another Saturn later on but like Ryan said, despite making a sizeably large collection to try beat out my old one I had sold it didn't have the same feeling. I also regret ever selling the Sega Nomad.

Greetings all,

DuncanR2N, I'm in Atlanta, GA.  I've been collecting for a few years.  Back in the nineties it was strictly PC games but I've since branched out into consoles.  As a result my collection is very PC heavy (about half of my titles) but I've been slowly going back and acquiring older titles whenever I can.

I wound up here via Gamespot.  Love the collection tools.  I'm still in the process of update my collection here but I have close to 1000 titles (roughly 980ish as of right now) but it will take some time to enter all that into here.  This looks like a good place for a guy like me.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: logical123 on July 28, 2008, 11:22:39 PM
Holy crap! I'm going to Atlanta this friday for 2 weeks! Any good classic game stores that I can check out down there?

Hello all.

I'm Cass (aka TGL) from Manchester, UK.

Been gaming since I was about three, my first console was a NES but I also played a lot of PC games from a very early age. I used to own a splendid Commodore Plus/4 as well, which sadly died many moons ago. I've been actively collecting (so far as my wallet will allow) for about 4-5 years, starting with NES games but branching out to cover more platforms.

Currently got just under 500 games, covering PC, NES, SNES, Nintendo 64, GameCube, PlayStation, PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, GameBoy, GB Color, GB Advance, DS and PSP.  Yeah, no Sega. Yet...

Favourite games tend to fall into the RPG/adventure and shooter genres, but I like a little of everything.

Like my good friend DuncanR2N I was also lured here from GameSpot. I have to say the collection tools here are much nicer :)


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please

Welcome Cass,
good to see another Gamespot member jump over and see what RFG is all about.

You and DuncanR2N will no doubt also find if there is any game this site doesn't already have, it is easy to submit it and will probably be up within 46 hours unlike a lot of other sites.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please

Don't worry about swamping us, we have a whole team who can approve these. In fact we've nearly hit 3000 submissions in July which is an average month. If it takes a few days to approve them, It's because of the time of year with summer vacation and other commitments and all. :)


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: DuncanR2N on July 30, 2008, 11:37:04 AM
Yeah I've already started with the submissions.  It looks like when I get to the PC games I'll be adding a bunch there as well.

I've probably got a bunch of images that I can submit as well once I get around to it.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: logical123 on July 30, 2008, 11:41:50 AM
If you submit over 50 things in one month, you also get your name on the front page. Its a nice little 'thank you' from the staff that really shows that you did make a difference. Everyone does, even if the have 1 submission.  :)

Hey all, I'm Zerger from Bedfordshire in the UK. Been wanting to join a site like this for a while and have decided to start getting more into collecting again, being only 16 with little time on my hands I rarely gather much money let alone enough to satisfy my gaming needs, but I keep going nonetheless. I have around 25 consoles by the looks of it and Sega consoles and games are more my thing, though i have plenty of others that i haoppily buy games for. No true goals as of such at this time, just a nice big collection of games with the odd few I look out for more than others.

Just make sure you read the submissions FAQ first (http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/submitinfo.php?action=faq) and have the games nearby when you do submissions because you need the Part Number or UPC for everything you submit :)

That's great. Did you find the Part Number, too? It's usually somewhere on the side of the box, or the back. It can also be on a the cartridge for cartridge-games. For a Playstation game, this is for example: SLES 54271.
Try to fill in both, the more fields filled in when doing the title addition, the better :)

The only two numbers I found were the ISBN number and the barcode number. I put the ISBN in for the part number and the barcode in for UPC.

No problem. Sometimes they can be hard to find. Then it's better to just leave one or the other open :)
You can also edit an entry which has been made in the past if a field is missing or a something's wrong. You'll see that alot of entries don't have their Part Number or UPC yet, because you didn't need to enter them in the past. Feel free to edit any of those and submit the Part Nr./UPC if you have the games :)



Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Cobra on August 06, 2008, 05:43:32 AM
The bar code is great, almost any game or piece of hardware will have one.
Don't stress too much if you can't find a part number, sometimes they can be hard to find and  a lot of products don't even have one.

Hi All, I'm Phil, (from Nottingham, UK) - (36) married, 2 kids..

been gaming since playing Race Driver  at a neighbours in the late 70s. Love videogames but seem to enjoy reading about them / collecting them more than playing them at the moment.

If anything I'm Nintendo fan but also rate the 360 - have a bit of downer on the PS3 - not been too impressed with it so far. I love the style of Japanese games as I think these were more prevelant in the SNES area.

Owned lots of different systems but the Golden Age of gaming was the early 90s - mainly thinking of the SNES. Just started collecting and done a couple of bulk purchase on ebay for a US SNES and a US N64 with a good selection of games - this has not gone down well with the wife but think it was worth it.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=320280041267&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=011

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=320279953973&ssPageName=STRK:MEWN:IT&ih=011

Also recently acquired Secret of Mana - started playing this last night - seems good so far - trying to look past the dated graphics and get a feel for the game.

Collecting goals - seem to want to buy everything but focused on games I owned and sold along with top 25 SNES and N64 games.

Goal for end of the year is to pick up a copy of Chrono Trigger and complete it and maybe try and play some of these other games I've already purchased. Want to have a collection that gets played.

Also, love this website - great way of maintaining collection and reading about games etc. Also it's not banned at work like most other game related websites.

Cheers,

Phil :)

You can also post them in this thread: http://www.rfgeneration.com/forum/index.php?topic=824.0 where we show off our eBay winnings :)

Chrono Trigger is one of the best RPG's ever. Sadly, I haven't played it either :( mainly because it hasn't been released in Europe and I should get a US SNES.

Enjoy uploading your collection and feel free to PM me or any of the staff if you run into a problem. :)

That's great. Did you find the Part Number, too? It's usually somewhere on the side of the box, or the back. It can also be on a the cartridge for cartridge-games. For a Playstation game, this is for example: SLES 54271.
Try to fill in both, the more fields filled in when doing the title addition, the better :)
The only two numbers I found were the ISBN number and the barcode number. I put the ISBN in for the part number and the barcode in for UPC.

The database standards for part/UPCs that require them for verification, only apply to hardware items not games. Don't get me wrong, they are very much welcomed for game submissions as well, but only hardware submissions will be questioned if they don't have them.

The main reason is that for every game system, there are multiple companies who make items such as accessories, controllers etc. In order for us to differentiate and prevent duplicates, we need unique information to the item in question. That way we know whether it's already in the database under a different name or not.

Games hardly if ever get duplicated, but one member's Dual Shock 2 [Clear Green] submission, could be a duplicate of another's Dual Shock 2 [Emerald] and the only way to tell if they are both unique or one a duplicate will be it's part number or UPC.

In the odd instances that a hardware item doesn't have either for whatever reason, a picture can be used as a substitute as long as the staff know via PM or post before the submission is submitted so we can approve it. As I mentioned earlier, only required for hardware not games.

Thanks,
Keith

Hello there, I'm Pat from somewhere in the bowels of Ohio, it tends to be gray when I go outside. My game backlog is starting to rival my anime backlog which I should probably find some way to catalogue that also. I'm a programmer or hopefully will be after this last year of college. Currently stuck on Atlus games which basically guarentees that my backlog of anything shall suffer. Nice to meet everyone!

I think I have a rather broad taste, that or when a game is cheap enough I'll get it, feel free to poke fun at the odd assortment. Probably take me awhile to make it back to my atari games.

I'm not too sure about that. Simply clicking a name doesn't show you that person's profile?

Can you view and edit your own profile? (probably, seeing you uploaded that avatar)

Welcome Porksta.
That may be a new security measure recently toward newer members to reduce the collecting of email address for SPAM, I'm sure it'll come good eventually.

We had some assholes ruin the fun for everyone regarding the profiles who were harvesting email addresses. The restriction to view profiles only exists for Tiger Gizmondo / Guests, which after 10 posts you become an N-Gage where the profile restriction no longer exists. That said, the new version of SMF should eliminate the need for this restriction.

I never did get around to doing this...

I'm Kenny, and I'm a compulsive gamer. I buy too many games, and I'll get into at least a dozen at once before realizing that I'll lose track if I start any more. I'm trying to become a fantasy writer, and I'd love to become a video game designer.

I love board games with lots of components, and I collect dice. I'm also a D&D fan, but my group is pretty much split up across the country right now.

I own the following systems:

Atari 2600
CD-i
Dreamcast
DS
Gameboy
Gameboy Advance
Gamecube with GBA Player
Genesis/CD with Power Base Converter
N64
Neo Geo Pocket Color
NES

Hi, I'm Brendan :)

I've been visiting here and using the database for awhile now, and I realized I've never used the forums yet. Figured now is as good a time as any!

I'm a psych major from Brooklyn, New York, and I do Windows, Linux/Unix, and Mac tech work on the side. I also fix game consoles and other hardware... I'll basically give anything you throw at me a shot at repair. I'm self-taught.

I've been gaming since the NES, followed by the Genesis and the Game Boy, but my real collecting took off with my Dreamcast in 2001. That's right, I went from 16-bit to 128-bit. Since then I've gotten a relatively sizable collection (which I still don't have completely in the system yet). I enjoy platformers and RPG's most I suppose, but I basically play everything but sports and MMORPGs (the former due to lack of interest and the latter mainly due to lack of time). My favorite game is Skies of Arcadia for the Dreamcast/Gamecube, with the Metroid series a close second, followed by Phantasy Star Online, the Sonic the Hedgehog series, Team Fortress 2, and Combat for the 2600 (Best multiplayer game ever!).

I own:

Atari 2600 x3 (Heavy Six, 4 switch, and Jr.)
Atari Jaguar
Mattel Intellevision
Panasonic 3DO FZ-1
NES
SNES x2
N64
Nintendo Gamecube
Nintendo Wii
Game Boy (Gray Brick)
Game Boy Color
Game Boy Advance (Orig)
Game Boy Player
Nintendo DS
SEGA Master System
SEGA Genesis x2 (Models 1 + 2)
SEGA CD
SEGA Saturn x2 (Oval and circle buttons)
SEGA Dreamcast
SEGA Game Gear
SEGA Nomad
PSone
PS2
XBOX
XBOX 360 Elite

And for my PC/Mac gaming needs, I use a MacBook Pro with Mac OS X 10.5, Vista SP1, and Slackware 12.1 installed. I install virtual machines of older OSes for older games as needed.

Hello everybody, I'm 26yo and from MA.  I've been comming here to keep a list of all my games and systems in the My Collection database.  I've got all the big systems from atari 2600 to PS3.  I also have some of the obscure systems such as 3DO, Jaguar, TG16, and even Vectrex.  My rarest game is probably Swordquest: Waterworld for Atari 2600 (unless you count the Deadspace Ultra Limited bundle, but I don't quite count that), and my favorite games are Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Persona 3 (just started 4), and Final Fantasy X.  I mainly collect for Sega Saturn because I'd like to have a full set someday.  I'm not too far off but I only really buy them when I find them in the wild, so it slowly builds up.  I also post at the digital press forums under mailman187666 in case anybody has seen me post over there.  I figured why not and may start also posting here.  So anyways, whats up?

Nope, actually it's rather small. I think there's around 50-100 members that really post often. (I could be wrong though, I didn't do any fancy calculations or something...:P)

Anyway, don't let that scare you because we may not be with a lot, but the community is fantastic. :)

I'm Tatton and I'm 28 and from Ohio.  I've also been using the site for a while to track my collection, but recently I've been reading the messages on the forum for a bit and this seems like a fun community.  I don't really have any one specific thing that I collect, but I do enjoy tracking down imports.  My favorite consoles are the Saturn, Turbo Grafx/Duo, and the DS.  My favorite game series has got to be Bomberman, though it's hard to pick a favorite.  I enjoy playing RPGs, shmups, 2D fighting games, and Bemani rhythm games.

I'm looking forward to posting with you guys!

hey all you dudes I am a guy who actually isn't as grammatically wanton as this first sentence without any full stops or capital letterings may first point you towards the direction of believing

In fact I am actually pretty much a grammar nazi! But sarcastically so. Somehow. You might learn what I mean eventually. My posting styleee is pretty distinct. Which could be good or bad depending on how individualistic you are! But since this is the internet I assume that you won't care either way and I will assert my dominance over you with fists of steel, possibly.

Oh god I could go on for hours about me. Because I have a big ego. Yet I'm also self-defeating and therefore am a paradox.

I make music, possibly. Also I love movies. And music, possibly. And webcomics and the internet and okay I'm a generic geek possibly.

Some music I like is Kupek, Gorillaz, New Order, Freezepop, Beck, Bjork, Blur, DJ Shadow, Aphex Twin, Squarepusher, Daft Punk, Justice, and a lot of others

Some movies I like are anything by Michel Gondry, Little Miss Sunshine, Speed Racer and most Pixar movies. And Persepolis. Did I mention I like animation to an unhealthy degree?

Some webcomics I like are Dr. Mcninja, Rice-Boy, Dresden Codak, and Templar Arizona. And Gunnerkrig Court and XKCD. and stuff

I also draw. Frequently. Whether it's good or not is up to you.

I hope that you will accept me into your menager-ay of assorted bizzare geeksters.


EDIT: Also, I like video games. Um, some games I like are Command and Conquer, Viewtiful Joe, F-Zero GX and Wario Land Shake It!? Those are just the few that popped to my head just then because I forgot I mentioned it and this is a gaming forum

I'm re-introducing myself because I've been lurking for the past year and a half and now I'm starting to get a little more free time.  I'm Dustin, I'm a big Steeler fan, I live in Southern California, I love the SNES, I'm a Nintendo fanboy (I guess) but I own all the current gen consoles.  I love cars, and I'm looking to buy an Audi A5 right now.  I'm pretty blunt and say whatever the fuck I'm thinking.  I'm also a regular in the RFG chat which all of you people should come visit and say hello sometime.

I just realized that I've yet to introduce myself. So, without further ado...

I'm 24 years old, and I hail for the Cornhusker state, Nebraska in the USA. I enjoy writing, my gaming stuff is here on the site in my blog, and I'm also a gamer and collector, which should be obvious since I'm here. I've been gaming since I was 5, got my first NES in '89, and I've been hooked ever since. I spend a bulk of my time playing RPGs and fighting games, but I enjoy most any genre of game. Outside of gaming, I'm into anime and manga, and I enjoy reading and watching TV, I'm not really much of a movie guy though.

I think that's about it, without delving into my back story anyway, but I wouldn't want to bore anyone.

Hi kids! it's me, Fred the Fop, with a smoky, sweet persona, here to add a little sparkle and Richard Simmonsness to this darling little forum!!
I just love those cute consoles from the 80's and early 90's. I was an original Mattlel Intellivision and Atari VCS in 1980. From then on, I have been hooked. In 1997 I found out about emulation, but did not get a computer until late 1999. A used but maxed out and bad-ass Apple Powerbook 540 PPC.
Sadly it died and I had to build a new Windows PC with help from a pal. Now I have been back to Mac since early 2006 and never looked back. Here's to continuing our quest for finding old games, new homobrews, and little gems here and there!

GIGGLE!  :-*

I always thought fops were pretty cool. The homosexuals of the current day just paint them as gay. Really though, it was a sort of metrosexual type movement. Sure they were overdressed and acted prissy, but at the same time they were carrying swords, dueling, and banging bitches all over the damn place.

My name is Tim but for some reason I forgot I prefer to be called Gamepopper on the internet. I live in Warwickshire, UK and currently a final year GCSE student (so year 11).

I first played video games on an old Coleco Telstar that my mum got at a Charity shop back when I was around 5, she gave it back to the charity shop for some odd reason  ???. I later got what was known as a Superjoy II, this pirated game system that had 50 games and resembled an N64 controller without the analog stick, my favourite game on it was Gradius but I was better than my sister, who was a year and a half older than me. I also played on a Sega Mega Drive, playing Golden Axe at a friends house (he still has it :P). I was really into video games when I got an N64 for christmas (I was 7 so you could say I was a british N64 kid :D) and used to play Mario Kart 64, Zelda OoT and Majora's Mask (which was gold), Super Mario 64 and Banjo Kazooie (don't know why I didn't get Banjo Tooie).

I didn't consider myself a retro gamer until last year, where I got a Wii for my birthday (lucky me ;)) I was playing alot of gaming classics and some I've never had a go at. I eventually got myself a retro system, MEGA DRIVE!!! Now I'm a collector, of Mega CD games!

Hello, I'll introduce myself now that I'm a member of this great site and forum:

My name's Nick, I am 18 years old, I live in Hobart, Australia and I have just recently started a BVC (Bachelor of Visual Communications) at UTAS Art School.

I didn't go 'retro' in my video games 'till 2007 (grade 11) when in April if i remember i Bought a NES from ebay, then a Mega Drive in June, then another NES (complete and in mint cond. Action Set, so awesome) in June/July) Then a SNES in Early 2008. I originally had a SNES from the age of 8 to 12, but I gave it away to a friend who's Mum soon gave it away to someone else. Man i was pissed! Though it's my fault for giving it away in the first place >_>

Check out my website when your not busy, below (in my signature area) which has a few bits of my artwork in it. Its in 'Beta' form btw, so don't expect anything flashy or finished.

Thanks everyone.

uuuuum, the only system i have is a 360 w/ my gamertag being froggin ashbowl. just dont send me friend requests unless you and I have ACTUALLY played together. too many ppl i never met w/ inferior noob-like scores wanting to be my friend cuz i've been playing a certain game longer than they have. worst part is...eh u know what? that'll be part of next blog entry. anyways, i've been playing games most of my life. right now i play Left4Dead, FFXI online, and Fallout 3. cya, and remember- "may the sap of his wisdom guide you"  :laugh:

Now i regret even explaining since you chose not to really comprehend.
There's nothing to comprehend. On a forum, where the only means of communication is the written word, proper grammer is a basic sign of respect towards your fellow posters. Assuming you're sitting infront of a computer/laptop, you have a decent keyboard at your desposal which allows for easy access to all capital letters. When you're here, you're probably not playing a game either, so there's no need to rush things.

I have absolutely nothing against you personally, I just wouldn't like to read things like "i kno but u said 2 me wht he thinks is cool and cuz u think its cool i think so too." :)

I think we can. And thanks for correcting me, it's not always easy to write everything correctly, for a person that didn't grew up speaking English like myself. Luckily for me, this site is filled with native English speakers. My English vocabulary is expanding daily. :)

Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Sirgin on March 22, 2009, 06:39:03 PM

I live in Belgium, but yes English is a course during highschool. It only starts in the 3rd year of our highschool though, which is age 14-15.

It wasn't too bad, but there's absolutely no comparison between being brought up in a language and studying it in textbooks two hours per week.

Despite the classes, I must honestly say I've learned most of my English through the TV when I was younger. Unlike many of Belgium's neighboring countries (German or France would be good examples), Belgium TV doesn't dub series and films that are originally in English. Instead, we only get subtitles. I think it's a great thing though, because it allows for the viewers to learn the actual languages instead of hearing (horrible) dubbings in their own language. :)

It's not a German flag though, it's a Belgium flag. (The difference is slim, I know)

Hi,

I'm Dirk I'm 28 and from Freiberg Germany. I started playing and collecting video games just after the german reunification. It was the Atari 2600. Later I continued with Sega Master System and a lot of PC-Stuff. After a long break I restarted collecting and playing video games in 2005. I started with the Nintendo 64 and since 2007 I began my complete Master System Collection (which still is missing 48 european games and alot of oversea ones).

During the last year alot of Consoles joined my Collection first of all Nintendo DS and Wii, as well as alot of older ones: 3DO, CD-I, Mega Drive, Sega CD, Gamemate, Game Master and Game Gear. And this was the time where I found RF Generation (while searching for a site to track my collection).

I really like collect every console and every game and I'm a very "pedantic" collector too, because every small cover variation has to be in my collection.
And I'm collecting and repairing old GDR computers.

Beside collecting the most time is working at university (hope I get my Ph.D. one day).

Thats it,
Dirk.

Feeling shakey to post considering past experiences on forums but might as well give it a shot.

I'm 23 and I come from England. Sadly don't have very many interests though due to well a lot of things cause me stress.

More of a player (and not a good one either) than a collector, just happens to have a collection ever since I've been playing games since I was about 8 years old with the Mega Drive, maybe even older than that if I can remember playing in the arcades. I found this site by someone called SuperYoshi who is one of the admin staff on a forum, either him or ApolloBoy linking their profile and it does seem like a nice system to list and organise which games that you have.

First time I registered here then a couple of days later the hack happened, waited until it came back up, re-registered and then it disappeared the next day so 3rd time lucky I suppose.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on February 19, 2012, 05:51:38 PM
Sorry about the outage, Furnessly. The second time your registration disappeared was due to an unforseen issue in a change that was made to the database, and we didn't have a backup done between the time the site was fixed and you registered that day. :/

Everything should be good to go though now! Welcome to the forums, and I hope you enjoy your time here.

Hello my name is Spencer I'm 23 years old, I live in Livonia, MI. I started seriously collecting games in December 2010. I strictly collect games, no games I own are for sale/trade, I only sell doubles of games/systems locally. I plan on passing my collection down to my children (If I ever have any) My main goal was to collect games for nostalgic reasons but I have somehow amassed way more than I intended to collect for. I love to hunt down games of high value and purchase them for next to nothing. My favorite console is the Sega Genesis. My favorite games are Sonic 2 and Conker's Bad Fur Day

Hi my name is Andrew.  I'm 20 years old and I'm from Kentucky.  I recently got into seriously collecting retro games and I'm having a great time with it.  I don't have a favorite console, but I'm especially fond of the 16 bit consoles. I'll collect anything cartridge based.  I'm sure I'll branch out into the earlier disc-based systems but right now the Genesis is so much fun.  I'm attempting to complete my 32x collection and have a very good start.

My name is Michael, I'm enjoying my second marriage of 3 years, and I currently live in Moberly, Missouri.  While I no longer have most of them (would sell off old to gain new), I have had most consoles from the Atari 2600 to PS3.  I have also had a few console computers from the Timex Sinclair 1000, Color Computer 3, Atari 800, Atari 520 ST, Apple IIc, and I still have and use an Atari XEGS.  The only console I have not found yet is a Vectrex and a few others that are out of my reach like SNK consoles.  I am currently attending college for an Associate's Degree in Web Design and Interactive Media through the Art Institutes of Pittsburgh which I'm fixing to start my 4th year this summer.

My current collection consists of mainly hardware:  3 XBOX'es, 4 PlayStations (One is a PSOne), NES, N64, Sega Dreamcast, Atari 2600 Jr, Atari 5200, Game Boy Advance, GameCube and a 360 (rescued from the RRoD and found in the dumpster to our building).  We are currently concentrating on locating Atari consoles and games that we don't yet have.

My favorite games are listed below by systems we have.

Atari 2600:  Vanguard, Space Invaders, Asteroids
Atari 5200:  Star Raiders, Galaxian, Q-Bert, Qix
NES:  PinBot, Guardian Legend, Zanac, Life Force, Castlevania (series), Blaster Master
PSOne:  A-Train, Final Fantasy 7, Gran Turismo series
PS2:  Gran Turismo Series, Tokyo Xtreme Racer Zero & 3, Final Fantasy X
GameCube:  Hands down...Metroid Prime.
N64:  Conker's Bad Fur Day, Rush series
XBOX:  Forza, Magic Battlegounds, Burnout series, Shenmue II (wish this series was finished)
XBOX 360:  Forza series, Game Room, Dynasty Warriors series
GBA:  Pokemon series

That's pretty much it I think.  Hopefully a classic gaming expo-style event will find its way into my area someday.  But I'm not holding my breath.

Welcome again kamakazi20012. It sounds like you will be fitting in nicely around here. Make sure to check the Buy/Sell/Trade forum if there are Atari titles out there that you are looking for.

Nice choices on NES games, those are some of my favorites also.

Hi all, my name is Shaun Ive been lurking here and using the collection tracking program here for a while now. Ive been meaning to add more stuff to the database but seems like I can never find the time. Ive mostly gone to Digital Press to post and Ive wanted to start posting here but once again time seems to be my down fall so with DP down Im making my first post. Hopefully this will give me the incentive to divide my time better or find more time.

Anyway, Im a visual collector if I see something at a good price or I want to play it Ill buy it even if I have no way to play it and Ill start collecting for whatever it is after. Thats how I got started with the TurboGrafx-16, I had two systems and a Turbo Booster way before I even seen a game for it. I guess thats why I like sites like RF and DP, theyre more about collecting in general than collecting for a specific company or era. So I hope I will be a more active member here from now on.

Welcome to RFGeneration! It's always nice to see faces from Digital Press show up here from time-to-time, as I started my collecting while on Digital Press and moved here originally during the downtime in 2010.

The forums are a bit slow right now because we had a significant outage of our own recently, but feel free to post up on the forums. There are quite a few people lurking around, just waiting to respond to something new on the forums. ;D

Hi, i'm DerZocker from Germany. I found this site via the Famicom World forums and thought what a good way to keep track of my collection ^^ I was always intrested in older games (my first console was a 2600) and never got rid of my older consoles when i got a newer one. But it really took off when I got better job few years ago and I was finally able to afford some of the more obscure stuff I only could dream of^^

Fellow user jsangspar introduced me to this place when I was looking for a better way to keep track of my always-growing collection.  GameSpot's lists just weren't cutting it anymore...

In any case, I hope to have my list of consoles\games finished off in the next few days, and I look forward to many a gaming discussion with you all.

Hi everyone. Name's Brett. I have been collecting for about 7 years now, and have only just discovered this site from listening to the collectors podcast on youtube. I am currently living in Japan attending college and am spending a lot of my spare time either hunting for video games, or try to play some Japanese game that I've picked up and figuring out what everything in it means. When I first came to Japan last year I decided to start work on a complete Wonderswan bw/colour game collection. Currently I have got about 90 games out of about 200 total games released for the system. Most of which I bought without needed to go and waste money in Akihabara. I hope to try to collect as many of them as possible before I return home to America in August this year. I've got a decent knowledge of games only released in Japan, and actually just spent almost all day today adding games to the sites database, quite a few Wonderswan games were missing, and a couple Wii and DS games I picked up while here.

So far I've liked what I've seen on this site so far, and hope to contribute in any ways i find possible.

Post by: kamakazi20012 on May 21, 2012, 10:40:53 PM
I am not sure if I introduced myself or not as I didn't see anything posted from me here.  So I will introduce myself even if I did it already before.

My name is Michael and I've been a video gamer since 1979.  I was born in 1974 and still remember mom having to hold me up to some of the arcade units I wanted to play.  Unlike so many like myself, my first console was not the 2600...it was the 5200 which I still have and play to this day.  As a matter of fact, that's my 5200 in my avatar.  I enjoy any gaming console but take particular interest in Atari & Sega consoles.  The 5200 remains my all-time favorite but I am also a sucker for pre 1985 consoles (ColecoVision, Intellivision, Vectrex, etc.). 

My passion for games has led me to become a contributing member to Retrocade Magazine all the while attending Art Institute of Pittsburgh's Online Division to obtain a degree in web design and interactive media.  When I am not playing games, working on magazine articles or assignments, I can be found creating my own video games using DarkBASIC Professional.  I am also studying the Atari 8-bits and 5200 as much as possible.

Outside of gaming, I also enjoy collecting: vinyl, VHS, Laserdisc & CED memorabilia.  It's amazing what can be found at Goodwill stores these days.  That's pretty much it.  Great work RFG!

So that's me in a nut shell.  Well, kinda.  I look forward to getting to know some fellow collectors/hunters and doing some trading, even though I'm sure everyone here already has all the crummy commons I got lol.

so ive been on here for a month or so now, but i realize i hadnt posted here, and this should have been my first post! hah.

ok guys, the names Tim, and i hail from the great state of kentucky. ( your current national champions! ) I started collecting around 2003, built up an insanely nice collection and sold it off to help fund college. The hunger grew and finally i couldnt take it and i started collecting again early this year, and this time, my collection will never leave my side! I work midnights for the railroad, ( thought im just at a shop not out on the locomotives ) and i do my flea market hunting in southern ohio, western west virginia, and northern kentucky. the city i live in, ashland, is literally the tip of north east ky. its the tri state area, i can be in ohio or wv in 5 min either direction. If im not game hunting or gaming, i am golfing, playing hockey, playing music, or probably watching a movie because im a huge movie buff. i have over 15 TB of movies :)

I blame NES_Rules that I ended up joining here, meet him on Igloo MC server, anyway I'm know as Kilth, female, 23 year, from the Netherlands and started to play games ever since I got Pokemon Yellow as present from my parents xD Got me a few consoles with the years and am now addict to my PS3. I'm not really a hardcore collector, but do spend a lot of money I've got on games, artbooks, guides, figures & merchandise.

If not lazy/gaming I will hang around here, work on my collection or add any useful data to the database ;D

Hi, i'm ghostwarmen and I have been collecting for about 10 years now. It all started out with me playing my PlayStation I had ever since birth. Ever since then, I got an Xbox, Gamecube, and my dad's CIB NES out in the garage. After those 3, I became more interested in other consoles and other games, and that's when we reach this point, where my collection has grown considerably larger. My collection continues to grow, and with over 26 game consoles and 623 games, it astounds me the amount I have. Never thought I'd reach this point.

Looking forward to being a part of this site and sharing all of my finds.

Hey, name's Shawn. I live in Pennsylvania. I am 16, and although I am young I am nothing like today's youth. People say I am odd for liking the retro stuff, but I couldn't care less of what they think. I detach myself completely from current entertainment like music and television, because it all is terrible in my opinion. What is really funny is when someone asks me "did you hear that new song by Katy Perry", and I say "who?" I barely pay any attention to the current video games either, aside from Nintendo, and a few other companies. I like many types of music, but the new stuff just sucks.  :grrr: Frank Zappa, The Beatles, and Frank Sinatra are my favorites.  :D I play many games from yesteryear, but currently I only collect games from the Gameboy line. If my uncle decides to give me some of his old systems, I will defenitly begin collecting other titles.

Welcome Shawn. You take the words out of my mouth as far as modern stuff is concerned. I still like modern stuff but in the past two years my like for classic stuff has skyrocketed at an alarming pace. I still get crap from people for liking older stuff, but you must respect the older stuff to appreciate the modern stuff. If people could appreciate where there modern stuff came from they would understand why we like the classics. Oh and yes modern music is horrible, damn auto-tuned talentless crap nowadays lol.

I really only began collecting games for the Gameboy, only owning 89 games for it now. The reason why I started, is because I barely get to play the consoles due to the fact that I have a one year old brother who happens to be the crankiest kid I have ever seen. But, it is all for the best, because without that bit of push, I would not have started collecting. :)

I in all honesty have NO idea who that is. You made me laugh when you mentioned that most of the members are disgustingly old, but if I were to choose, I would have been born in the 60's/70's so I could have lived through the golden age of video games.

All the mainstream artists are pandering to the lowest possible standard of music, all while putting forth the lowest possible amount of talent or effort. It is all about the glam, glitz, and looks rather than the music. My brother is good for that, if it is older than a few years, he ignores it and blows it off like is worthless. He gives nothing a chance. His arrogance will hurt him someday. But I digress, I know that everyone else has their opinion, and they have the right to like what they do. But imo it still sucks.

I'm almost 23 and sometimes I wish I was born in the 60s more because the music was better, the drugs flowed like wine, and the arcades were seedy and places to hook up with girls that you should probably protect yourself against.

But hey my first system was a SNES and 3 years later a PS1. I don't have as much experience as a good chunk on this forum but you can rest assured you're not the only jaded youth that feels an immense amount of contempt for his generation.

Hey everyone, I joined a little while ago but this is my first post!  I was actually turned onto this site by the RF Generation podcast, and this seems like a great community overall.

Years ago I had LOTS of vintage gaming systems (ranging from NES & Genesis up to GameCube & Dreamcast) I have since had to get rid of all but the Dreamcast and a couple games from each system.   :(   

What I want to do is start collecting for my favorite system, the N64.  From what I've seen in this forum, it's not such a hugely desirable system, but it has sentimental value.  I'm hoping to learn a lot from this community as I undertake this  :)

Welcome to the forums!
I would suggest you get to know a few of our members very quickly. We have at least 3-4 members trying for complete N64 collections, and they'll get you up to speed quickly with whatever you may want/need for N64. ;D

Hi Orzunoid, and welcome. Glad to hear that the podcast drew you over. N64 collecting seems to be picking up steam, so grabbing them before prices start shooting up is a great plan. As Shadow mentioned, there are some N64 folks around here, so jump into the forums and don't be a stranger!

A very warm welcome to RF Generation Orzunoid!

I do believe that collecting for a system you have the most interest or nostalgic feelings for can keep your collection going strong for a quite some time and if your going for a complete collection I wish you luck. Should have tons of fun collection for the N64.

Personally the N64 is my most nostalgic Nintendo system to collect for as I have flagged tons of hours on that system back in the day. Too much GolenEye 007, Mario Kart and many more. Its my largest Nintendo collection I have. I think the thing that turns people off about the N64 is that it was that weird phase between 2d and 3d and it was cartridge based (Which I love). But it still had its strong titles none the less.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: techwizard on July 30, 2012, 09:55:05 PM
N64 is a fun system to collect for, there are lots of hidden gems and it's not overly difficult or expensive to go for a complete set, except a few titles. i'm one of those few going for a complete set too, including foreign exclusives...i really need to get back into it, it's been months since i've bought anything N64 :/

I know my friends and I logged weeks-worth of game time in both Perfect Dark and Goldeneye, but I had fun with Mario Kart 64 and Forsaken mostly on my own.  Also I used to spend hours fiddling around with a Gameshark I had for the system trying to find hidden stuff in Goldeneye and LoZ:OoT.  Unfortunately one of my college roomates broke it  :-\  Oh well, those were good times

Hi everyone, I finally found a great forum for the weird species I find myself part of: the video game collectors :)
I've grown up with the NES and SNES and after a few years of only pc gaming I returned to my roots of console gaming. I got into collecting by listening to the retronauts podcast a few years ago and I've been collecting ever since.
I live in the Netherlands and RPG's are my favourite genre, a combination which can suck because of region locking and a lack of RPG releases for PAL regions, compared to Japan and North America. Things have gotten better with the region locking and RPG releases now.
Collecting wise I've been all over the place and I have a lot of different systems now, I think adding my collection to the collection tool on the website will take me a day, but it's a great tool and worth the effort.
I don't come across a lot of retro games or systems in the wild and as such am forced to use ebay a lot. My best finds in the wild were a SNES with Mario Kart boxed for 10 euros at a second hand goods store and Link: The Faces of Evil for the Cdi for 1 euro.
Because I want to set a good goal for myself and get some structure in my collecting, I set the goal of collecting all US RPG's on the SNES, PS1 and a full PAL Sega Saturn set.
If anyone is looking for PAl exclusive games, let me know and I'll see if I can help. There are a few Dutch selling websites where these games regularly pop up.
I'm looking forward to get very jealous of all the great finds you guys are going to post on this forum :)

Welcome to the forum! I know that we have a couple people on the site that have hit your goals, although the full PAL Saturn set will take you some time.

If you need any US-exclusive items for your set, let us know! Quite a few of us are willing to ship overseas, and would be interested in exchanging for PAL items (myself included).

Hey guys I'm just stopping by to say Hi!

I grew up with Atari 2600 then C64 onto SNES etc.... I never really collected video games but I frequented thrift stores a lot in the lat 90s and early 00s looking for 80s toys but when ever I found something video game related I'd pick it up.  Within the last two months I've been getting back into the video game side of collecting and have been hitting thrift stores almost daily and yard sales every weekend. It was nice having that stuff from old thrift store days to kinda give me an "insta-collection" to begin with.

Currently, I'm in the process of cataloging my collection and building a game room to display/play the stuff I find.

I'm different from most people in this hobby in that I'm not really coming at it from a nostalgic point of view. I certainly played some video games as a kid, but I doubt I ever would have garnered the label of "gamer". I even went several years without touching a game (2001-2008 or so). I started collecting on a whim. One day, I was looking up some random factoid on Wikipedia and somehow, I ended up reading about the video game crash of 1983. I was amazed by how little I knew about vintage gaming. I truly found it fascinating. . I started reading about games a lot and then started listening to vintage gaming podcasts and watching youtube videos. I eventually got to a point where I needed to see these things in person in order to satisfy my curiosity. That's when I began collecting.

I started off with really old systems, but then realized that I needed to go with slightly newer games if I wanted to convince friends to join me. I now have a pretty good base of 8 bit games and I'm working on adding to my 16-bit collection as much as I can.

My collection is far from large (or valuable) but it is eclectic. Shortly after starting to collect, my finances changed drastically, which limited how quickly I could grow my collection. I even had to sell my prized collectible (a Vectrex complete in box with the original packing foam). I still made a tidy profit on it, and it helped me pay rent (I bought it for $110 and sold it for $160 cash + store credit), but there isn't a day I don't regret selling it.

Sorry to hear you had to sell such a cool item :( I'm still searching for a Vectrex myself. Eclectic is a very good thing around these parts. I think its a great way to start out too since you never know what kind of niche you might fall into so its a good thing to explore a lot of different avenues in your collecting. Hope to see more of you on the forums!!

Welcome aboard Dechico2004. You'll find RF Generation to be a very great place to talk with game collecting folks, well that's why were here. If your gonna get into playing RPG's on the PS1 your journey will never end. That system is full of great RPG's and it may take a lifetime to complete them all. Great bang for the buck nowadays. I need to grab me some more PS! games. The system has too many great games that I grew up with. Have fun here Chico.

Hi, popping in here because why not? Seems like a nice place.

I work nights at a very easy and very boring job. It pays the bills and leaves me with enough disposable income to blow on crap I don't need like video games, comics, cds, movies, and other goodies.

Evening - my name is Dave and I currently reside in Long Island, NY. I've recently gotten back into collecting games a couple of years ago after I sold a lot of my original games. I started with a Colecovision when I was six and soon graduated to a C64, NES, Genesis, SNES, and so forth all the way up to my Wii and PS3.

I've gotten back most of my old consoles and have a modest but rapidly growing collection. Though it's hard for me to narrow it down, I'm quite partial to the NES and SNES library of games.

Besides games, I also collect vinyl records - though that's been taking a backseat as of late.

Hi Quackula, I've seen you over on Racketboy. Glad to see you make an appearance over here!

DaveMMR, it sounds like you are going to fit in well here. I'm guessing you must be around my age as I had a lot of similar gaming experience in my youth. I'm a big NES nut, and SNES has some great titles, too.

There are a few other vinyl collectors here if you poke around.

You'll both find a great community here, and make yourselves comfortable and post often :D

Hi, I'm Anthony from Loughborough in the UK. I've been collecting on and off for a few years now, I'm more into collecting different systems at the moment as opposed to games (although it is nice to have games to play on said systems). I don't get as much time available for my hobby as I used to as I now have a young family but I'm slowly getting my two daughters to appreciate the world of classic games!
As far as my favourite system goes, it's a toss up between the Mega Drive and the Neo Geo.

Welcome aboard! I like grabbing interesting hardware also, even sometimes when the games aren't really that great. Having kids definitely makes collecting more interesting, but as you mention getting to share that with your kids can be really fantastic.

Hello! I'm GUEST!! from St. Louis, MO. I've only been collecting for about a year or so, since I picked up a Retron 3, but it's been a pretty awesome year. I'm well on my way to recovering my old NES collection from my childhood, as well as picking up many of the games I'd wanted, but could never get at the time and along the way I'm discovering a whole bunch of stuff I wish I'd known about in it's time. I know it's late to the party, but I'm only just now discovering the joys of Kirby and Turrican and their like.

I'm hoping to really expand, and lately I've been focused on hardware. Just picked up a Saturn and a CDX. Hoping to add a Dreamcast to that, as well, as I'm pretty much in love with the Space Channel 5 games. :D

I look forward to seeing you guys around and discussing gaming of all types.

Welcome GUEST. Once you start talking NES collecting, you are speaking my language. It's a lot of fun to find those buried gems for all of the older systems as you pick things up. Grabbing new hardware is always a little like Christmas as a kid since it opens a window to whole new libraries.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you jump into the forums.

I've had an account for a long time but disappeared for 5 or so years, so hopefully it's cool if I re-introduce myself. I'm Erik, from Minneapolis, MN. I am an avid collector of just about anything, but my pride and joy is my NES collection which is sitting at 462. I'm hoping to reach 500 in the coming months. It's getting harder to find stuff...fingers crossed!

Anyway, I'm hoping to be more active in the forums this time around and get to know some of my fellow collectors.

Started my account here at the end of July this year at the suggestion of my friend, niceguy1283.  My gaming addiction started on Christmas in 1985 when I got a NES as a present from my parents.  Over the years I didn't have many consoles, the NES, a Genesis, a Playstation, and finally an XBox I bought right before the end of it's production life.  During that time the NES started failing on me from the connector being worn out and it ended up in the trash when my mother was "cleaning."  The Genesis I gave to a friend as a gift, I boxed up the playstation and neglected the Xbox as my PC gaming addiction took over.   Recently in the past few months I've found a renewed love of the older consoles, I bought an NES, SNES, Genesis, PS2, Gamecube, and a Dreamcast. 

The collection is growing steadily, I've mostly been cherry-picking games I've wanted in the past or were just good deals.  I have yet to go as far as trying to collect everything, and I'm not terribly picky about complete in box games.  Cart only finds work well for me as my storage space it limited.   Most recently I stepped into the modern console era with purchasing a PS3, XBox 360, and a Wii. 

I think what I enjoy most about this addiction, besides playing the games, is the HUNT for games and deals.

As my name/sig implies, I have a big affinity for the old wireframe games, as I created the original Vectrex wiki (I say "original" since a friend of mine allowed me to create a backup on his site a while later) and the vector gaming forums, which currently has 60 members and nearly 4500 posts in a little over a year of existence.  The site also has forums covering the oldest Pong machines to the most current crop of the XBox 360 and the upcoming OUYA systems, so it's not just a site of cornering only the unique, limited era of vector video game history, as some people have expressed surprise of what all can be found on there, along with a gaming calendar promoting expos and events (the current Portland Game Expo is up, but will be deleted after the show this weekend).  Only two areas are not viewable for guests so you can poke around most of the site.

I don't really know much about the current gaming scene though, even though the family has a Wii.  I'm mostly old school, having a Vectrex (of course), a Sega Genesis, CD player and 32X, an Atari 7800 with 2600 games, some handhelds, PC games and a plug and play system.  Not a real huge collection, but I'm updating this site's database with info/pictures from it that is missing.

Non-gaming interests include music (from pretty much anything from new age to death metal), law (ex-legal person) and digital photography.

Well that's pretty much it, you can go back to your gaming now :)

Nice to hear more about you Vectorguy. I've never owned a Vectrex, but the look very interesting. I got to poke around with one at CGE, and it is very impressive given when it was produced. You'll have no problem fitting in here, with plenty of classic gamers around.

I am a little disappointed that you didn't mention owning a NES or SNES, but I'll let you go on that for now ;)

Thanks!

Yep.  Jay Smith, the "father of the Vectrex", said in an interview just a couple of years ago that with all the electronic stuff that he helped bring out (from the Microvision to a current fishing game that uses a physical rod and/or reel that attaches to a tv), the Vectrex was still his favorite achievement.

And I hear ya about expos, as I got to play my first Sean Kelly Vectrex multicart (nope, don't have one) the other year at an expo.  So that's always cool :)

You'll have no problem fitting in here, with plenty of classic gamers around.

Good to hear!

I am a little disappointed that you didn't mention owning a NES or SNES, but I'll let you go on that for now ;)

Heh.  Maybe I didn't clarify about not knowing much about the Wii like I was dissing Nintendo or something, but I wasn't.  We just don't have many games for it.  I didn't know anyone who owned an SNES, although a cousin had an NES that I played on once.  I'll have my own Wii at some point (probably the upcoming Wii U) and I still want a GBA!

The hunt is the best part of it!  Tracking down games I wished I had when I was a kid.  Scrounging through endless piles of games at the shops for good deals.  Finding stuff I didn't know existed!  The joy of finding a rare title at a low price, and the kicking myself in the ass when i find out I payed too much for something...  good times!

We took the Mario car to Eureka springs AR the last two years for a all Scion car show. Yeah I put well over 1000 hours into the cars. A fun hobby. Everyone always ask if I have the game system in the car. Heck yea. It's one of those fake systems that plays NES/snes. It fits the snes controllers and works fine so why not.

Can't wait to get to know everyone on here. I'm sure it will help my collection.
I also build some cool probs to go with my car that could be used in someone's game room.

Hey Rick, this is a great place to start over again.

Here at RF Generation we like to be a team. Were not into out-doing each other, we just all have the same common interests. Thats why were here for ya.

Glad to see you have an interest in collecting, even if it may be a collecting hiatus you may have had. Theres always something about us that collects and loves the feeling about picking up games, be it big or small, it doesn't matter. It's all in what makes you happy as a collector.

Hey please do keep in touch with us here on the forums. Any post is great for the community and we look forward to hearing from you Banards.

Hey RF Generation community!

I found this site while googling video game collecting, and it looks like a stumbled on a great group of collectors.

Like many people, I had older generation consoles and games that eventually ended in Value Village donation boxes and now I've decided to rebuild my old library. I'm looking forward to some nostalgic gameplay and experiencing the titles that I missed out on.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Duke.Togo on October 01, 2012, 09:11:09 PM
Welcome aboard Fleach, you've definitely found the right place. Building that collection back from scratch can be really exciting, and there are a lot of great titles to be had a low prices.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Razor Knuckles on October 01, 2012, 09:13:39 PM
Value Village you say? Are you from lovely Canada?

I too love to play games for their nostalgic values, they mean a lot to me.

But I do also like to play the games I missed out on back in the day. For me I feel like I never missed out on those games. I feel like playing a game you never played before, be it new or old generation games is still 'New' to me. Probably because I got past the whole graphics make the game phase.

Just because a game is old in time doesn't mean it cant have the new feeling to you. 

But I blab on.

But yes we are a great community and nice to see you consider ourself's as such. We are a great community indeed . But please do hang out with us on the forums. We love any input.

Welcome  Fleach.

Hi, I'm Ferg and I'm kinda old. I've been gaming since 1976 and collecting since 1995. In the last few years I started wondering what the heck I was doing with all of these games, so I started selling off stuff that I had no sentimentality about.  I am almost done with my selling and I feel much better. My main collection is the 2600, but I also sort of collect the NES, SNES and SMS. I have a complete US 7800 collection (except for the box and manual for Tank Command, dammit). I do not have any systems made by Sony or Microsoft. I am one of the few people on earth who cannot stand the Vectrex. I stumbled onto the podcast via Atari Age I think, and I am enjoying it very much. I was curious about the collection database that was mentioned on the podcast, so I took a look at it and realized that I had started cataloging my games here back in 2007, which is when I started to lose interest in collecting, so I never finished. Now it will be much easier to do with less games. If you don't want your heart broken then don't ask me what I sold off. :)

Hi. I have been into the retro scene for a while now, although I'm more of a gamer than a collector. Favourite systems would probably be the Sega Master System and the Super NES, but I tend to love just about anything pre-playstation one.

Welcome aboard fergojisan and Munter! It sounds like you both enjoy the older games, which of course, since they are better, right? ;)

fergojisan: You're not the only older guy around here, so I think you'll fit right in. You'll have to spill the beans at some point if you let go of any choice items. It's interesting to hear, and if there is any regret with it. I have let a few things go here and there, but I've always kept my focus on 8-bit Nintendo and SEGA.

Hey all, been lurking a bit but figured it's time to say hello.

I'm Chris, a game developer here in Las Vegas. I've been gaming since the Atari 400, but have only recently begun to collect in earnest, now that I've got a house and a room to keep/play em in.

I restore arcade cabinets, and have about of a dozen of em in varying states of completion. On the console side, I focus on Atari and Sega while my girlfriend works on building her SNES collection.

Love the community here! Just don't hold a grudge against me for using Backloggery rather than RFgen for collection management, I get a lot of use out of the progress/notes features of the former! :]

Post by: SnakeRule on December 04, 2012, 01:48:05 PM
Hi there!

I'm a fairly young guy from Finland who has a passion for all things gaming. I started out gaming on an NES when I was just a toddler and barely understood what was going on. Luckily I've never had to sell any of my games or consoles so I still own all of my childhood consoles and games.

As I said, I started out on an NES. I skipped the 16-bit era playing the cheaper NES and eventually my parents got me a Playstation. I really enjoyed the Playstation and ended up getting the PS2 and PS3 in the future. However, I'm not all about Playstation.
To fill the 16-bit era gap I got a Sega Mega Drive and in the handheld department I have a PSP and a Game Boy Advance SP. PC gaming has also always been important to me, starting with games like Commander Keen and Duke Nukem.
I don't have much interest in systems older than the NES, so the Atari 2600 stuff isn't really for me.

I feel that games after the PS2 era really have started to lose their personality, which is probably why my PS3 is not getting much use.

Retro game collecting is fairly tough here in Finland. Flea markets only seem to have PS2 games these days, so I'm limited to ebay. I'm looking to get more older systems, starting with an SNES.

So to recap all that rambling, I love and collect old as well as new games and consoles.  :P

I've already begun adding Scandinavian and Finnish versions of games to the database (with pictures), but haven't added all of my games to my collection yet.

I kook forward to getting in on the conversation!  ;D

Welcome to RF Gen, SnakeRule!

I enjoyed reading about your gaming history. Personally, I was a Sega kid growing up and I was addicted to Sonic related things, but that died down when I discovered the PS2.

Being from Finland, you'll bring an interesting perspective to this community.

Hope to see you in the forums and blogs.

My name's Derrick. I'm a video game collector, college student, and competitive Pokemon TCG player from Madison, WI. I'm 22 and attend the University of Wisconsin - Madison for journalism and communications. The main consoles I collect for are SNES, PS1, and GB/A. I really do love anything retro handheld, though. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, and I love many other nostalgic RPGs. I was once an admin for one of the largest Pokemon-related websites on the internet, Marriland.com, so I really appreciate what you've got going on here.

I came to this site via a friend's recommendation in the first place. I mostly intend on using the collection tool as it seems far superior to many others that I've seen. I do intend on being at least semi-active on the forums when I have time.

I'm new here and would like to introduce myself.  I've been collecting for about a year now.  First started trying to buy anything and everything for each system, but that soon became overwhelming.  Over time i created a list for each system I want to collect for.  In this list are the games that I consider to be the definitive games on that particular system.   I'm nowhere near completing it, but I thought i'd like to share what I do own.

There are a few games i own for a couple systems that i don't particularly care for, and that I received from lots.  But the majority of games I own are games I consider to be good.  Quality over quantity.

My collection can be found here

Welcome RetroByte! I think many of us started off collecting anything and everything, but we eventually learned what we want to specialize in. Myself, I want to go for complete licensed NES set and would like to collect RPGs for other systems. I'd say quality over quantity is important to collecting.

Looking forward to seeing you around the forum.

I think many of us started off collecting anything and everything, but we eventually learned what we want to specialize in.

I went the opposite tack, myself. I started collecting just for the systems I owned at the time. But as the great garage sale finds piled up, I decided to pick up just about anything for just about any system.

Fortunately, I've become more picky as to what acquire for my collection... for which my bank account is thankful.

BTW Happy New Year to all, including all the new guys. I hope to emotionally cripple you have some good conversations with you on the forums.

Hello all, I have been registered here for a long time. I originally found this site quite a while back and even have a copy of the Video Game Bible collecting guide but have never posted here.

I have had video games since the atari 2600 but always traded in to get new systems. I stopped in the late 80's when I was at college and started again with the SNES. I still traded in until the Saturn and at that time started collecting. I lived in SE MI at the time and there were a lot of thrift stores in the area to hit. 7 years ago my family and I moved to central IL. Smaller towns mean less thrifts, but I still hunt every week.

What brought me back to the site in earnest was finding the android collection app. It is wonderful and I need to get my collection inventoried. Coming back to the site to test the collection database led me to the collectorcast, which I thoroughly enjoy.

My basement is a giant mess. I need to get my collection inventoried and my extras sold/traded off so I have the space to enjoy my collection. This is my goal every year. This year I plan to document my journey to organizing my system in a blog here to keep me motivated and working towards the goal.

Thanks for the great site!

What's up? My screen name may be shortened to SGC64, or SG64 or whatever you wish. If you can't tell for some reason, my screen name is a mash up of Super Nintendo, Nintendo Gamecube, and Nintendo 64 which are 3 of my favorite systems. While I do love Nintendo, I wouldn't call myself a fanboy. I write videogame reviews and also run a video game blog at www.facebook.com/SGC64 (I post my thoughts there and it is NOT family friendly. If you're offended by anything on my page you have no one to blame but yourself).

Hello everyone. My name is Steve and I currently live in San Antonio, TX.  I'm a combat instructor in the military and I'm pretty sure it's the best job I've had/ever will.

I was big into collecting in the late 90s and early 2000s but got sidetracked with being single and in my 20s.  Time has passed, I have a great wife and wonderful baby girl, so I figure its time to get back into collecting.  Enough with the cheese...

My main gaming love is 90s era systems and games, but I'm really into everything including current gen.  My current goals include collecting the Lynx library and every US Castlevania release.

I got turned on to RF Gen by a buddy who recommended the collectorcast podcast (which I love; make it weekly!) but I also like the collecting tools and I've heard great things about the RF Gen community.  Glad to be here!

Hello every 1,
Im Chris From Rotherham UK. (is it ok for UK users to use the forum?)
I've been collecting video games since 1988, so quite early. till 1995 when I discovered alcohol & partying lol
I started collecting again in about 2007.
I'd guess I have the basis of what could be a great collection.
Back when I was buying, you could buy a Boxed mint condition Nes with like 10 or 15 boxed games for 20!!
Anyway I hope to post on here as often as I can (i'm not that sure how to use forums)
My gaming history is as follows-
Sinclair ZX Spectrum Fave game- Chucky Egg
Spectrum +3 fave game- Great Escape 
Sega Master System- Fave game- Wonderboy Monster Land
I'll stop now with this... I guess there is a thread for favourite games and relise there becomes too many systems to list

Hello everyone, my name is Pichu (well online it is) and I'm also a Wisconsinite. I've mainly stuck to racketboy for my gaming forums but hey I've been using the colllection tool here (which is excellent) for so long I might as well join the community.

I am aiming for a complete U.S. N64 collection, but games only for now and I just want the cartridges since I feel like obtaining good condition boxes/manuals will be that much harder. Baby steps.  :D My other goal is to get a complete Dr. Mario collection, again not going for CIB but I just might since it's not that large.

I'm super psyched for the Midwest Gaming Classic since I can't really get out east or west for some of the bigger conventions, and I never even realized there was one right here at home.

Lastly, Pokmon...pretty much embedded within any budget I draw up, automatically.

"How did you accidentally damage it?"
"I left it on the floor and my cat decided it was time to play his favorite app."

Incidentally, I had my laptop open one day, and my cat jumped on it. All of the sudden, I heard a loud advertisement playing for Blazing Angels II. Somehow, my cat had clicked on an advertisement, navigated to the purchase button, and clicked it. She just looked up at me waiting for me to put in the credit card information. This is the same alcoholic cat that shuts off my Xbox 360 when she wants attention by nosing the power sensor.

Good lord, I've been on this site for...about a year and a half now, and I don't think I ever logged anything here...I'm so ashamed. I began looking for a new website to host my collection when IGN's collection tool turned to garbage. Did some random sleuthing and uncovered this gem. I finally started becoming more active within the last 6-8 months or so and I absolutely love it here.

NOW the actualy introducing. Name's Shane and I live in New Jersey (right by that dastardly "Shore" which is, btw, 100% inaccurate) I'm 27 and have been playing video games my whole life. It started with an Atari 7800 way back when but the first system I had that was truly my own was the SNES. It slowly snowballed to a Dreamcast, then a GameCube and it really took a turn for the worse, as my wife puts it,  when I bought the Wii, my first system I bought all on my own since the rest were all gifts. Favorite game has been Final Fantasy III (VI) on the SNES. However my first Final Fantasy was II and I've played it enough that I can probably beat the whole game in one 7-8 hour sitting without skipping ANYTHING.

That's all for now. Some of you have already dealt with me and I look forward to continuing to do so.

I've been quite active on here lately and it appears I never introduced myself so I find it necessary that I do so properly. My name is Adam, I am an 18 year old from the state of Michigan, and well... I have been collecting off and on for the past 2 years, and video games are just something I enjoy. First Game system I ever played I would have to say is the Atari 2600 that my family had. Eventually we got a SNES and then in about 1997 or '98 we got a n64. (All those three consoles are the same ones I grew up with and never got rid of them. so I am sentimentally attached to them :3)

Other stuff about me is , well I talk alot ... but I'm not really outgoing I guess you can say socially awkward, I do alot of ramblings that mean nothing, but sometimes I have so deep thoughts ...

 More Other stuff... I am going to college for animation and game design, which is one of my dreams is to design a popular game, but when I'm not in classes I do comic strips for the local paper and work as a guy in a costume that waves at people at a Magic/Costume Shop (I also am the cashier there) Anyways back to game related stuff... I have a Certain order I am collecting .. i don't know why it's like a system... I Collect Mainstream First (unless I see a Rarity that I'm likely not to find again) and then Accessories and then I look for Games. Probably my favorite thing I own is a Ms. Pac Man Cocktail Table Coin-Op... But it's at my aunts house because I have no room in my game area right now for it.

   Anyways I think that's enough info about me :3
     Thank you all for making me feel welcome

Hi, I'm DarkKobold.

I'm more active on reddit's r/gamecollecting community. I used to be head judge over at TASVideos.org, which also explains how I got into collecting. About 3 years ago, someone developed a circuit to input tool-assisted speedruns directly into a Nintendo System.

http://www.instructables.com/id/NESBot-Arduino-Powered-Robot-beating-Super-Mario-/

We call that "console-verified." Many TASes have been demonstrated to be playable on a real NES.

http://tasvideos.org/Movies-Verified.html

Anyway, I decided to build the circuit and verify TASes. This requires a rather extensive NES library. So, I set out to gather NES games to verify. However, acquiring games sparked something inside me, and  turned  a peripheral interest into my core extracurricular activity. I eventually resigned as head judge, because I simply didn't have the time to collect video games and help admin at TASVideos. 

Back then, I made quite a few TASes on turbografx, but had never owned the system. Now, I'm happy to say I am very close to having a complete HuCard and SuperCD collection.

Hey guys,
I'm fairly new to collecting, though I always gamed, I didn't get really into it until last summer. I'm a pretty casual collector to be honest, I'm new to this and am not working on any console in particular, I'm currently just getting the best titles for my favorites consoles.

I love the snes, the n64, the gamecube and the wii. I collect diverse games, but have a soft spot for kirby and pokemon franchises.

I barely get anything for the NES because I suck at it lol, the only game I've been able to get through is kirby's adventure.

Looking forward talking to you guys

Well not going to lie...  This was the only gaming site not blocked by my companies internet screening.  

I'm an avid Atari 2600 collector.  I got them as a gift in the early 90s from my grandmother.  Just been slowly collecting them over the years.  (And there starting to get expensive)  I used to do a lot of online gaming on the PC.  Lots of RTS and Wolfenstein.  Those days are waning.  (College days are over and don't get to hang out with my lil bro as much who is my arch gaming nemisis.) 

A couple of days ago was my 1 yr of owning my first home and I'm getting married in June.  So basically I got about 2 months to buy up as many toys as I can!  lol

Same time period I got my house in, and I've been married for 2 years (we've been together for 12). Just take my solution to the problem - marry a woman whose first tattoo was the Atari logo on her ankle, and we had to pull an Atari 2600 cart off the shelf for art reference.

You'll fit right in with the other Atari enthusiasts we have here, though admittedly we're no AtariAge when it comes to that.

Welcome to the site DeusVult, and hopefully you'll enjoy it more than just because it isn't blocked.

You're definitely right on that last point, wives are expensive. Buy, buy, buy!

Thanks, and I've already found a great use for the handy checklists the databases have here.

Well not going to lie...  This was the only gaming site not blocked by my companies internet screening.

Now you tell me....My Fiance would prefer all that game stuff to be left in the garage.   Funny thing is she loves playing the games though.  Fickle she is.

Find a way to display them better, and you might find she won't mind having them out. Mine are all shoved in a room right now, and my wife won't let anyone in there until we get it organized.  :laugh:

Well, my whole idea was building an elaborate hidden tray system that leaves the large label displayed and I bought hundreads of small brass labels for all the games.  I was going to mount all this inside the expanded mantel of my fireplace.  (Was going to box in with molding from the existing 5 feet high up to the 22 foot ceiling)

All was right with the world until she decided one day last month that she likes the fireplace surround the way it is.  Whoops there goes that hidden agenda.

I don't have that problem because I control the network at my office ;) but you can get around silly internet screening with a service that routs your PCs DNS connection through a remote site like unblock-us.com

Might cause problems if you are a member of a domain and you need the server's DNS in order to log in though.  Sorry, I like solving problems.

I'm Drakon from Toronto Canada.  I'm a retro video gaming hardware modding hobbyist.  Here's some of my fun creations..

Street fighter 2 arcade hack (running on a real capcom arcade board):

The sega 32x s-video mod:

The fastest overclocked superfx game, running on a real superfx chip:

A mr. gimmick reproduction cart with an improved audio circuit:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=hVJTyAoSzTM

I took the metroid 2 full colour romhack and made it capable of running on real hardware:

Same thing with marioland 1:

http://16bitgamer.forumotion.ca/t228-mario-land-full-colour-romhack

I'm probably best known for creating nes / famicom consoles that use an arcade graphics chip to output true rgb, s-video, a switch on the back to select between two very different audio circuits, and other fun bells and whistles:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gj_55_gZmNA

I upgrade the video quality of the snes:

And many other various mods I've done.

Hey, I'm Adam and I Live in Florida. I am 22 and have been playing games since I was 3. I have been married for 4 years (no kids lol) and just living the dream. I work at a retro game store and have been collecting for about 18 months now. I collect and play everything from the NES to the Wii U. I found out about this site from a post on cheapassgamer. They said this site had a killer game collector function and they were not joking. Been adding my games to the list for the last hour and so far have over 340 in my collection. About 250 more titles to add.

I am a proud owner of a complete 296 N64 collection NTSC. It took me about 9 months to complete and was very fun. Check out my game list if you want. Hope to get to know you all more and am excited to see what all I can gain from these forums. My username is the same on other sites such as cheapassgamer or Nintendoage, so you might have seen me around.

Hey guys I'm Tiberius (no my parents weren't Trekkies, sorry to disappoint you). I found this site through the latest podcast (#14). I'm currently living in the state of Arizona. I started playing games on the NES, but my favorite console is the SNES.

I have a decent collection of console and handheld games with some, but very few, dupes. 

I used to frequent thecoverproject.net to contribute and get covers there (a great resource if you're not familiar)

I'll be updating my collection in the next few days and look forward to joining and hopefully contributing to this great community.

My current retro brand systems I own are a Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and a single Game & Watch (The one that started it all: Ball).  So, hello. (Sorry sometimes I'm bad with words)

Hello, I'm Kevin from the east end of Long Island, NY.

I just found this site a few days ago. I stumbled on this site because I was looking for a list of Genesis launch games and the release dates of early Genesis games. I want to start a collection (again). As a child I had roughly 20 games. Now I have 4.

Currently my favorite system is the Genesis, but I also love the Master System, NES, and SNES. My biggest collection is the SNES with 28 GREAT games.

Jump in the forums and have fun.

My name's Adam.  I'm from Ohio.  Been collecting for awhile.  Just recently got back into it.  Love NES, Snes, N64 and other cartridge based systems.  Outside of retro gaming I'm into powerlifting and firearms.. lol.

You've got some cool hobbies. I like powerlifting and olympic lifting myself (though I'm lousy at both), but they're fun to watch. I hope you enjoy your time here and I'm looking forward to seeing your gaming pick ups in the Small Scores thread.

Hi everyone, I'm Derek, from central PA. I'm currently enjoying revenge against my video-game restrictive parents in the form of collecting and playing for the NES. I also enjoy game boy, SNES, and N64, and even a bit of PS2, but I'm focusing collecting on the NES for now. I like to say I "collect to play," in that I look primarily for titles I'm certain I'll really want to play through at some point.  I also like to develop my own homebrew nes games (helped create Nomolos: Storming the Catsle, now working on The Legends of Owlia), and play piano in my spare time.

I look forward to spending some time on this site and hopefully learning about some of the hidden gems out there that I completely missed out on as a kid, having been forced to mow eighty billion lawns to earn just one game at a time :)

Hello!

My name is Carter and I just remembered I made an account on this site. I'm 15 and live in Michigan. I've been playing games with a passion as long as I can remember and have always wanted to find a good way to catalog my collection of them. Now I just have to do the hard part and actual enter them into this site, I've only done one of the many piles so far. My favourite games are Fire Emblem 9, Paper Mario TTYD, The World Ends With You, Earthbound, God Hand, and Castlevania SOTN. Outside of video games I watch anime and listen to a lot of music. (just like every other teenager in the world, heh).

I hope I can get along well with you guys. It doesn't seem like it's going to be hard though from the little bit of lurking I've done

It's really great to see a younger person with a passion for playing and collecting the older games. You'll get along just fine. Remember to post pictures of games you bought in Small Scores and get a mention in the Collectorcast. And, no need to worry, we all love bacon here.

Hey all!

I'm Tyler. I'm in the Akron/Canton area in Ohio.

I'm a web developer by trade and gamer/collector by hobby. I have just recently decided to start collecting video games back in February-ish. So my collection is very small and slowly growing.

I grew up with a N64 being my first actual game system, but I'd have to say my favorite console is a Super Nintendo right now. My small library of super nintendo games have yet to disappoint, and I'm sure this could very well change over the coming years.

2 of my collecting goals is just collecting consoles and I would like to get all of the final fantasy and legend of zelda games as those two series are just flat out awesome in my opinion. Another general goal is to get as many role playing games as possible, as those are my absolute favorite types of games, and I hate shooters with a passion.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please

Hi folks!

I noticed one of the larger complaints recently for new members has been that collections have been slow to add. I wanted to point out that, if you have a barcode scanner, you can scan the barcode into the ID# field in the Database Search, hit enter, and it should pull up the title (provided we have the UPC filled out). If you don't have the case and have a Part # that you can reference, the ID# field will also facilitate it if the field is filled in, though Nintendo Part #s (notoriously Nintendo products from GameCube and up, especially in Europe) may have trouble matching.

Our free Android app also has support for this.

Hello Tyler, welcome to the site and enjoy your stay here. I hate to hear that you're not a fan of shooters, but I guess we'll still let you in pending acquisition of a Silent Service cart (a running joke that I'm sure you'll pick up on soon). Happy collecting and please don't hesitate to let us know if we can help. :)

welcome to the site! i used to be the exact opposite, with a hate for RPGs because i always felt that they took way more time to finish than necessary. now i'm a bit more open minded, i think a lot of collectors start to lighten up on their old gripes with certain genres after they've been at it for a while. maybe you'll come to like some shooters eventually, they're not all bad ;)

Welcome aboard, Tyler. It sounds like you're off to a nice start. I'm going to guess that when you say shooter, you mean FPS. Because no one hates scrolling shooters, right?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: bearmetal on July 05, 2013, 10:10:16 AM
I've just found all shooters to be really repetitive is all. Though Gears of War, though it is a modern game, is one of my favorite games for my 360. COD and Halo though... ugh.

You all are right though! I may find a gem to help me be a little more open minded!

Glad to be a part of this community!

To be fair, I'm an FPS enthusiast and yet can only play most of them with friends - I hate the community as a whole, and most of the time they make stupid decisions. I can't play them offline for the most part though, because as you've mentioned, they become a bit repetitive.

that's why i like battlefield on pc because if you choose you can ignore the community. there's no voice chat, and as much as it's a team game, it's easy to play alone or co-operatively with people if you choose.

@bearmetal what about something like the Metroid Prime games, or bioshock? there are some unique FPS  for sure :P

I mostly play RPGs, specifically those from Namco Bandai's "Tales of" series. My favorite games are Final Fantasy IX and Threads of Fate, and my favorite console is the Nintendo Gamecube.

I've been collecting for about 1.5 years now (although I had a fairly decent collection before that), and I probably have several hundred games in my collection now.  All of my game shelves are literally overflowing, but I suppose that's a good thing.  :P

My name's Steven.  I'm 26 years old and am from (near) Atlanta, GA.  I just joined this forum at the recommendation of another member here.  I've been browsing the discussions here, and this definitely seems like my kind of place!  I'm especially looking forward to participating in the community playthroughs when the next one starts.  :)

I've been collecting for about 1.5 years now (although I had a fairly decent collection before that), and I probably have several hundred games in my collection now.  All of my game shelves are literally overflowing, but I suppose that's a good thing.  :P

YES! Welcome to the site Steven! Very excited that you're interested in joining the community playthroughs.


welcome! feel free to jump into either of the current playthroughs going on for november, we're not strict about the timelines and people regularly join late. lots of time left to get in on some oddworld or max payne action :)

Thanks for the warm welcome!  I think I might join in on the MP3 playthrough :)

Hey everyone. You can call me Nx for short. I currently live in Indiana but will be moving to another state for health reasons. I find it difficult to pick just a single platform so if I had to pick two it would be between the NES and Playstation 2. I have been collecting game for a variety or platforms for the past few years. The platforms I have the most games for would be, again, the NES and Playstation 2. I play both platforms pretty much on a daily basis.

I am currently in the process of finishing school and getting my degree and certification(s). I put school on hold to work for a 3PL company for 3 years. I specialize in I.T. with a focus in networking and security, but a dabble in just about everything. If you ever need any IT related help, just ask.

Some of the things I did for my previous job consisted of the implementation of e-mail, VoIP, database and network monitoring systems. Before submitting my resignation, I aided in the installation and configuration of a MPLS network, linking all 5 offices across the US together.

In my spare time I currently help administer a TF2 gaming community but other players get together to play just about anything together. I myself host a Garry's Mod server. I also run a Opensource/Linux blog but is temporarily on hiatus due to personal reasons. It been about a half a year or so since it was last updated with new content. You can find it here: Link (http://"http://chooseopensource.com)

Anyways that's enough about me. If you have any questions or would like to just chat let me know. I visit the RFg IRC channel on a regular basis, maybe you can catch me there, send me a PM on the forums, or on Steam.

Later

One more thing, I wrote this at 1AM, so sorry for any spelling or grammar mistakes I may have missed. =P

I think Morrowind is the RPG I have put the most time into, across PC Non-Steam, PC w/ Steam, and Xbox I must have put in at least a solid 3k hours into it.

hey y'all, kaysow here from sweden. heard about this site over at thecoverproject and i always like a good database (fond of imdb and discogs). been gaming since the NES-days with a bit of a fallout in the 16-bit era and return to form with the PSX. collecting anything of interest, no complete sets for a system or anything like that, and i'm way partial to JRPGs.
not a lot to tell really, but i'm aspiring to work as an illustrator/production artists eventually. living in a one room aparment and i'm currently in a game collecting lockdown to save space. try to work out every other day. i scan a lot of old gaming rags and comics and covers for preservation purposes. also i'm terrible at math but a friend who's just finishing up a media technology course at university is trying to teach me some basic programming and i just wish id've learned it back in school cuz there's so much cool stuff you can do with it.  for now all i can do is experiment with gamemaker studio.

I think that you will find this site not only useful in terms of the database, but you will also find that the community here is outstanding and very supportive of its members. My advice to new members is to be an active participant as well as a user; participate in the forums, buy/sell/trade with members, add to our growing database with new software/hardware and/or missing info/pics, and join the playthroughs..............okay that last one was a self-plug, but still. :) This site is what you make of it.

Hello peeps,

I'm not that new, I'm Dezorian. I felt the need to change my name because Jerry Greenwood is my user name for other message boards, as well as my xbox account, and other things. I just wanted to be more consistent with everything and not have multiple user names all over the place. If the Mods want to delete my Dezorian account, that is fine.

So, hello again!

Post by: DarkStar on January 29, 2014, 04:48:20 PM
Just a quick introduction: I'm Chris and live just outside of Portland, Oregon (in a suburb called Hillsboro) - My primary classic video game interests are platformers, racers, and shooters. My wife however loves RPGs and puzzle games.

My day job is working for a manufacturer's representative - primary doing video game product management on Amazon.com, but a few other retailers too (like Fred Meyer, Costco, etc).

At last year's E3, I had a chance to get hands-on with the RetroN 5 by Hyperkin and that renewed my interest in classic console gaming. With the April release coming up, I'm starting to look over my existing games and find new ones too. I found the RFG Android app a few weeks ago and decided to join!

One of my hobbies is doing electronics engineering, so as such I've cleaned and repaired all of my own carts and consoles. Honestly though, if you know how to use a soldering iron, carts and consoles are pretty easy fixings!


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on January 29, 2014, 05:03:48 PM
Electrical Engineering is something I've given great consideration to going back to college for. I've got a ton of patentable ideas when it comes to electronics and video games, and I just haven't taken the time to learn what I need for it.

Welcome to the site! If you have any tips on cleaning and repairing consoles, feel free to contribute to our knowledge base here with a few blogs on the subject. I know that a few of our members have written modding blogs in the past, but they may have been lost to the ether after the site was hacked and we lost 2 years worth of forum posts and blogs.

Hello all!

My name is Codd Peace. I am confused... I thought this forum was a group therapy of video game addiction.
 ???

However, Nupoile assures me that this IS the correct website.  He also has an excellent selection of artisan craft micro brews.

Has anyone ever beaten Star Voyager for the NES??? I don't think it is possible.

As a matter of fact... I have had at one time collected EVERY video game for the NES in .rom format!! I am very proud.  j/k  ;)

Here is a video post of my home collection it only takes up 3 rooms, but the  vectrex room is pretty impressive:  My Home Collection Video Tour (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ)

Well, I guess I should say "hi" to Codd Peace.....this is what happens when you tell your friends about RFGen, they show up.

I'll have to be more careful in the future   :P



Actually I've been trying to get Mr. Peace to use RFG to log his game collection for some time now. He has more than a handful of games and probably a few that could be entered into the database on the PC side of things. We spent a little time yesterday going over the in's an out's of game submissions.

But enjoy the site Codd Peace, I'll certainly enjoy the extra humor.

Hi all  :)

I registered to this site on October 2009 and used it mainly to keep a list of my collection. My name is Carlos J., 31 years old from Puerto Rico. I currently work in a very high profile software company (hint hint) as a manager of digital services customer support. Gaming is one my strong hobby.

I started gaming back at 1989 (or 1988... can't remember lol). My favorite genres at that time were platforms, adventure and action. Games like Mario, Mega Man, Kirby, Contra, Castlevania, etc...  

Then in 1996 something happened. I bought Mario RPG on SNES from a sale in Blockbuster, complete in like-new condition for $12. I thought that the game was platform as well but I was wrong, it was something different from what I was used to play. I didn't knew what "RPG" was and got frustrated by the gameplay. Then some days later I gave it another try and this like I understood that I had to follow a "story" and do battles in a way that was alien to me. The story aspect is what hook me up to no end and this was beginning of my passion to RPGs and its sub-genres.

At this date my gaming collection is composed of 508 games with 5 more on the way. All physical. About 61% of my collection are RPG and Strategy. The focus of my collection is more quality than quantity though.

Some of the most notable things in my collection are:
     Mega Man 7 SNES (complete)
     Earthbound SNES (complete)
     Aero Fighters SNES (cart only)
     Chrono Trigger SNES (complete)
     Ever 17: The Out of Infinity (complete)

Some of the last games I bought are:
     (3DS) Cave Story 3D with holographic cover (complete and like-new)
     (3DS) Monster Tale (new)
     (DS) Advance Wars: Dual Strike (complete, good condition)
     (PC) Ever 17: Out of Infinity in English (complete and like-new)

My interests are gaming (duh..), anime (good ones), music, astronomy, cars, technology and running.

Definitely looks "up my alley". Anyways, I'm a long-time gamer & collector (since the 80's), my collection is at around 1000 games for various consoles. I'm currently focusing on completing a full PS3 & Sega Master System collection, as they are my two favorite consoles of all time. I'll update my games list over the next few weeks when I have free time. Anyways, just wanted to say hi, hope to chat with you all soon. Cheers!

My name es Lionel, i'm from Argentina and I was looking for a good way to track my game collection. I just saw a review (The metal jesus one) and i ended up here.

I'm not a big collector, but i'm trying to get all the retro stuff i always want.

Welcome! I love the Batman: The Animated Series avatar there!

Curious - in Argentina, do you tend to get a lot of US imports for retro titles, or do you have more of the Brazil-published bootlegs and licensed games?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Liodarm on July 18, 2014, 06:11:35 PM
The avatar is from the Justice League Unlimited xD

Our "market" it's mainly US imports. You can get an ocasionally Japanese import, but it's mainly US. We a have a TON of bootlegs (games and consoles), pirate carts and that kind of stuff. It's almost impossible to get a CD/DVD based system without a chip or some kind of piracy mod. Collecting or buying games it's expensive, right now a new game cost around 80-100 dollars. And the retro stuff it's not easy to find, there is almost no market.

But well, c'est la vie

You're right, it IS from Unlimited. I've been bouncing between Batman cartoons lately, since my wife loves watching anything Batman. Hah...thanks!
That's what I figured - mostly US imports. I know cost down there is horrendous, since you have to pay the import/custom taxes. Brazil's not much better when it comes to that, as you have to pay Brazil's taxes AND the cost of production being done in Brazil. Hopefully, some of the major publishers will find better ways to distribute cheaper games to South America.

Thanks for the information!


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Liodarm on July 18, 2014, 06:39:53 PM
Right now the cheaper way it's buying digital. It's the only way to "evade" the tax and shipping cost. There is some official releases, but the prices are just equal or more expensive. It's kinda silly, for example, if i a buy a PS3 Digital game in my Country PSN, it's way more expensive than using an USA account.
The best way to get the actual phsycal copy it's to have patience and look for deals... but not always i have the patience xD.

By the way, thx for the greetings  :beer:

Hello!  I'm Jen and I too am here from the Kotaku article on game backlogs.  :)  I've been looking for an online community / game catalog for a while now.  I used to use IGN, but it went all weird, then I tried Playfire.  It was awesome for a while, but then they took away everything I liked about the site.   :-\  I do have a backloggery (I'm jenbooks there as well) but it's really not up to date.  I keep forgetting about it.

The husband and I have a shared video game collection with around 600+ games.  There's so many I'd like to play but Skyrim still has me in a death grip.

If I'm not playing video games, I'm probably reading - mostly science fiction and fantasy, with some historical fiction and actual history thrown in sometimes as well.  Recently I've discovered comic books - I'm hooked on Afterlife With Archie, Saga, Fatale, and Rat Queens, among others.

I'm basically looking for a comfortable forum to hang around and geek out in - I hope this could be one!

Hi all. Joined a while ago, but finally managed to put up my NES collection today. Still have to put up my PS1, Genesis and SNES collections.

Currently living in southwestern Illinois, I've been collecting for a few years, desperately trying to get back all the games I loved as a kid. I can distinctly remember games like Quattro Adventure and Color A Dinosaur on the shelves. I had no idea at that time that they would be as hard to find today and valuable to boot.

Anyway, this serves as my first post. Enjoy.

Welcome! There are many great resources to find whatever you are looking for here and most of us will keep an eye out for stuff if you post what you are looking for. Trading on the site seems to be a very awesome experience overall according to many of our members. I haven't separated everything to start trading and selling personally on the site, but it seems most everyone on the site that is willing to buy/sell/trade on the site has documented a pretty good reputation in dealing with one another.

Yo wassaaawp

I'm really glad to be able to organize my video game collection and show it off on a website like this~ I really enjoy the vast library of what you guys got here and how members can submit missing games. The community seems really nice as well!

I used to be a complete Nintendo dork in the past but since a few years back, I've been expanding my horizons and trying out other video games from other companies and it's been great. I still like Nintendo but yeah, it's become pretty stale. I crave variety when it comes to video games. The collections I'm currently working on are the Hamtaro and Klonoa series, which are nearly finished at the moment.

I hope to get along with a lot of people here and get into the trading thing when I can! This place is pretty rad.

Hi all, I'm from Sydney, Australia, and I guess you could say MJR sent me here. :) I've been playing games most of my life, but decided to get into collecting more in the last year or so.

I don't really have a platform of choice, but I'd say I'm more into Nintendo and Sony than Microsoft, still have a console from each though. Some of my favourite series include Zelda, Silent Hill, Final Fantasy and Fatal Frame.

Hope to get along with everyone and learn some more about game collecting.

Welcome to both of you! I can tell you with certainty that you will get along with everyone here and learn more than you ever wanted to know about gaming and collecting. Especially with favorites like those. :)

I have heard amazing stories of trades, although I personally am still too disorganized to start trading.

Hi.

   Umm...  I guess I have been trying to find an online way of cataloging and showcasing my game collection since I first went online with AOL.  Gave up for years after they took away my "public AOL website page thingy" that everyone there had. A few months ago, I tried some other site, but gave up after 5 minutes when I found I couldn't show 3 duplicates of 1 game.  Saw the Metal Jesus video about some other sites and decided to check out this one.

   I have been gaming since the Atari era, and my first system was the Sears Video Arcade II. I own a lot of systems (sorry I don't have a good way of counting them right now), and a decent amount of games and accessories.   I don't know if I will ever be able to put all my games on this site because they are so disorganized and everywhere in my house, and some are packed away in boxes I can't get to.

   I don't really have 1 favorite system, but I want to think it might be a Nintendo product. Same with games; not sure but probably a Nintendo game or series. Hmmmm Pokemon.... Zelda... Mario Kart... 50 other things....    Just don't imply that I ONLY like Nintendo, because I can spend days, weeks, or months playing something on a Playstation, Xbox, PC or some other platform.

   Not sure what else to put here, so I guess I will just go look at the site.

Hey there. Listener to the podcast and long time lurker finally reporting in.

I've been gaming since early 80's from PC to consoles.

When it comes to gaming, I am platform agnostic.

I have so much to learned from my gaming interest and collecting from everyone.

I've been collecting for a few years, desperately trying to get back all the games I loved as a kid.

I think you just described at least 80% of the collectors here. Especially us older folks. :)

The community seems really nice as well!

I used to be a complete Nintendo dork in the past but since a few years back, I've been expanding my horizons and trying out other video games from other companies and it's been great.

I can say for a fact that this is the nicest community of which I have ever been a member. People here are encouraging and genuinely love to see the gaming items you pick up. They are also knowledgeable about items and will often help you track down whatever you are looking for. Check out our Small Scores thread on the forums; it's always fun to see what people get.

I grew up on Atari and was a Nintendo kid. It wasn't until 5 years ago that I got my first Genesis and SMS (I'm 37). It was like having two newly released consoles with a humongous library of "new" games to play.

Hi all, I'm from Sydney, Australia, and I guess you could say MJR sent me here. :) I've been playing games most of my life, but decided to get into collecting more in the last year or so.

We have a few members here from Down Under. One of our more prominent Australian members is Raidou. He was kind enough to join us on your last podcast and discuss some Donkey Kong Country. Collecting is a great hobby and you are definitely at the right place!

I have been gaming since the Atari era, and my first system was the Sears Video Arcade II.

Uh, yeah. You and I are going to have lots to talk about. Atari is my wheelhouse. :) If you get a chance, check out my personal blog. I've done several in-depth 2600 reviews over the years.

Hey there. Listener to the podcast and long time lurker finally reporting in.

Welcome lurker! Check out the forums and get active. We'd love to hear more from you. Keep listening to those podcasts. :)

Hello, my name is Richard and I'm from Florida. I'm one of the folks who saw the MetalJesus video and I'm excited to get my collection up on the site and talk about games. I have been playing my whole life, starting with Atari and my favorite is Nintendo stuff but I enjoy a bit of everything. I'm a mechanic and a musician. I've also been married for a little over two years. I've also recently subscribed to the podcast so looking forward to that as well.

Another Floridian, and go figure that you're a mechanic and musician. If you're ever in the Orlando area and wouldn't mind a trip a little further northwest, we have a Flea Market that has a Guitars & Cars event every month. You could pick up video games at the same time from the Flea Market! ;)

Indeed - Renninger's. I live 2 minutes down the road from there.

While certain vendors tend to jack up the prices, you can find newer vendors with lower prices, and many of them are willing to negotiate lower prices, especially if you buy in bulk or you come often. I negotiated $70 down to $40 the other day since it was a slow weekend for the vendor, so you never know. Also found an SNES Mini that someone sold me with a dogbone controller for $20, and I gave them $50 because they were willing to hold onto it for me and even dug out the controller and wires for me without being asked when they said they thought it was system only. It also helped that it was a friend's money, and he didn't know how much I paid for it. ;)

A few of our members here have PC cabs and can probably recommend some good boards and sites to find them. A recent Collectorcast episode went over arcade cab and pinball collection.

Also active on Twitter under AtariTexas. I'm into cart based systems with most of my collecting involved in systems such as Atari, Colecovision, Intellivison, Genesis, O2, and starting to dabble a bit with the TG16. I love going to gaming conventions and expos, love gaming podcasts, and hitting up flea markets on the weekends. Glad to be here and look forward to talking with others!

Hello, my name is Tina and I'm from Cincinnati, Oh. I used to write for Gamedreamz back in the day and have been on a few forums. Digitalpress and Nintendoage. My ability to collect has been under construction as of late due to having a 2 year old, but hoping to get her into gaming as well. I like the tools here for tracking collections and thanks to Kotaku I found this site. I collect mainly RPG's for consoles and a some on PC.

Hello from Fargo. I am a 22 year old who just finished school for IT.

Even though I was born in the early 90s, my first system was the Commodore 64 (earliest gaming memory is constantly committing suicide in Jumpman), sadly my parents got rid of it. My first post US crash system was the Playstation.

I am mostly a PC gamer who has always had a soft spot for the Playstation Nintendo since Gameboy Color.

Welcome to RF Gen Samus5678! And congrats on finishing your schooling.

There are quite a few of us young whipper snappers here, but we all share the love of retro gaming so we all get along. :) There's a growing number of PC gamers here too.

Check out the Small Scores thread to see lots of Playstation love. I don't know how but people are getting tons of PS goodies lately.

Looking forward to seeing your hauls and hopefully you'll jump in on one of the Community Playthroughs.

Uhh.....that is sad, but a great initial experience to gaming none the less! There's a high probability that since you are out of college and will have a job and fresh money soon, you will be reunited with this system once again. Trust me (and others on here), it's going to happen. :)  Welcome to the site and congrats on finishing school.

I play games and record walkthroughs/playthroughs for my youtube channel using either frapps for playing on PC or with a Hauppauge HD PVR 2 Gamer edition capture box.  I play many genres of games like fighters, racing, some shooters and action games, some music/rhythm games retro games and sometimes a platformer here and there.  I play JRPGS most commonly however.

I like the idea of being able to catalog my collection, so I'm sure I'll like it here.  Can anyone point me to the AVATAR and signature rules please?

Greetings all,

Retro fan located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Big fan of the Sega Genesis, RPG's, and all things I missed out on consoles I didn't own as a kid. Avid collector, JLPT N5 beginning Japanese speaker, and ROM tinkerer. Love coding, scaling, and operations of all things tech and always eager for new challenges.

I've already taken a dive into the RFGeneration app and sent off my first pull request to fix an easy bug

 Hello! I came to learn about RFgeneration because of a YouTube video from a guy called MetalJesusRocks. I do believe a lot of new people got here the same way, haha.

 I'm not as retro as a lot of you guys, but I'm old enough to have had to use an RF adapter on my TV in order to use consoles, and I never touched a PC game until 2011. Not that I had anything against them; I just never had a computer that could run anything until that year.

 Anyway, I'm not really a hardcore collector. I just like games very much, so throughout the years I've ended up with enough of 'em to feel the need to catalogue them, and this here is a nifty tool to organize one's inventory. Metal Gear Solid is my absolute favorite series ever, Left 4 Dead is my favorite FPS, Chrono Trigger takes the cake when it comes to RPGs, Resident Evil 2 is my nostalgic survival-horror sweetheart, and Super Meat Boy could very well be my favorite game to sprout from the indie lands.

 Pleased to meet you, guys.

Avid collector, JLPT N5 beginning Japanese speaker, and ROM tinkerer. Love coding, scaling, and operations of all things tech and always eager for new challenges.

I've already taken a dive into the RFGeneration app and sent off my first pull request to fix an easy bug

https://github.com/theGrue/RFGeneration/pull/1

Eager to help out more

[yodaspeak]To RF Generation welcome![/yodaspeak]

I'm based in the Silicon Valley, myself. Couldn't code or fix technological-type stuff to save my life, though, which makes me an oddity 'round my neck of the woods. Actually, I'm an oddity, period; just ask any one of my RF Generation colleagues, he'll tell ya...

Hello everyone, my name is Michael. I found out about RF Generation through a Youtube video and a few days ago I started using the collection tools and have been impressed with the site so far.

I have been playing video games for almost my entire life. I currently have around eleven systems and close to three hundred games, at least according to my collection posted on here, I may have forgotten some. The first game system that I ever played was a NES, but the first console that I had for an extended period of time was my Super Nintendo.

Sometime a little over a decade ago I sold nearly all of my games except for my PS2, and I am now trying to get those games that I used to have back and hopefully discover some games for those systems that I have since regained.

I also write a gaming related blog, called Squared Circle Gaming which is available at http://squaredcirclegaming.blogspot.com/ and will also hopefully start doing some Youtube videos soon.

I look forward to discussing games on here, and am happy to meet everyone.

Welcome all!

Hello! I came to learn about RFgeneration because of a YouTube video from a guy called MetalJesusRocks. I do believe a lot of new people got here the same way, haha.

 I'm not as retro as a lot of you guys, but I'm old enough to have had to use an RF adapter on my TV in order to use consoles, and I never touched a PC game until 2011. Not that I had anything against them; I just never had a computer that could run anything until that year.

 Anyway, I'm not really a hardcore collector. I just like games very much, so throughout the years I've ended up with enough of 'em to feel the need to catalogue them, and this here is a nifty tool to organize one's inventory. Metal Gear Solid is my absolute favorite series ever, Left 4 Dead is my favorite FPS, Chrono Trigger takes the cake when it comes to RPGs, Resident Evil 2 is my nostalgic survival-horror sweetheart, and Super Meat Boy could very well be my favorite game to sprout from the indie lands.

 Pleased to meet you, guys.

We're just wrapping up a community playthrough for Chrono Trigger this month!

Hey guys and gals. My name is Andrew, I live in the US, and I move 737 jets around for a living. I found out about this site through an article written by David Heineman on Kotaku. I intend to use it mainly to document my collection so I can track my backlog of games a bit better, but I just created an account, so who knows where this will take me.

I've been playing games ever since my mom rented me a Super Nintendo when I was three years old. My collection isn't nearly as robust as it once was, as last year I was robbed of almost everything I had collected since a child, but with the insurance money I was able to replace some of it. I've owned every nintendo system at some point, and hopefully I will again.

The Super Nintendo is my favorite system (reasons being a mix of nostalgia, love for RPGs and love for platformers). I usually bust it out once a year and play through several favorite titles.  I just bought a Wii U and that is my current obsession.

Looking forward to using the site and talking to all of you.

Hello, everyone.  I found RF Generation from a shout out by a twitter user on Pat the NES Punk and Ian Ferguson's Completely Unnecessary Podcast.  I knew I'd be spending a lot of time here when the collecting database had Famicom games listed separately from NES games.  Then I found the podcasts, which pointed me to the forums.  I hope I can become a part of this great community.  Now that I've finally found it.

I plan to avail myself of the community here as much as possible.  Bill, Duke, and Crabby made it sound like such a great place on the Collectorcast, and it really is.  I like being able to talk about collecting with people, and I don't have much opportunity for that, even at my local retro game shop (which is being taken over by Magic: The Gathering).

I listened through all of Pat's podcasts at work, so they kind of blended together in my brain.  I'll see if I can track down the twitter handle.  I remember the twitter user said they used the RF Generation app to track their collection and asked Pat how he tracked his.  (Pat just uses an Excel spreadsheet.)

Welcome Ikariniku, glad to have you here. Is your avatar Penfold from Danger Mouse?

Why, yes it is. After my custom avatar failed to upload, I picked out old Penfold from the list provided by the forum.  Not only is it a distressingly accurate caricature of myself, but I spent many mornings watching Danger Mouse as I waited for the cartoons I wanted to watch to come on.

'ello, I'm BurritoBeans. I'm out of Northwest PA, in the Union City/Erie area, and just got into collecting a year back. I don't have the biggest collection or anything, around 110 console games and 450ish floppies, but I do enjoy it. I've been playing retro gaming since I was four (3DO was our first console) and have enjoyed it since then. I found this site via another forum (AtariAge) thanks to lurking in chat long enough. Looks cool, and I hope this all helps me with my confusion over some games and my collection.

Hi all,

New collector from England here :) I decided to start by collecting for the NGPC. I didn't own one back in the day but since I'm a bit of an SNK fan and since I'm not a wealthy landowner I thought it was a better starter option than the AES. Since I got the NGPC through the post I've been loving playing it -- Puzzle Link is strangely compelling for such a simple game! I'm planning on picking up the cheaper games first and working up from there.

After I've got a few NGPC games I'm planning on collecitng SNK games for other platforms. Should be fun and I'm looking to collect some of my childhoof favourites while I'm at it!

Hello there.  I'm a 31 yr old computer support specialist that lives in Morehead, KY.  Pretty much a terrible place for yard sales/swap meets.  It's hard to really find anything, but I love collecting.  I'm mostly focused on Dreamcast right now, but I love Super Nintendo and Nintendo just as much. Also really searching for obscure consoles.  My main console focus is getting all the N64 colors.  Also looking for master system, virtual boy, sega cd, 32x, turbografx.  Jack of all trades I suppose.  I figure if I get on here and get in with the community, i can see how good other people are doing at their collection.  I just started really collecting last year, spent almost every single weekend out looking for yard sales during the summer and was one of the more fun summers I've ever had.

I obviously regret it now, but it's still kind of fun to start again. My main focus at the moment are Playstation (1,2 and 3) and Gamecube games. However, I have my old dreamcast and once I have a new VMU and VGA cable I want to start collecting some of the Gems for that!

Hi everyone!  My name is Bill and I'm 32 years old.   I'm from the Chicagoland area and grew up with a NES and Genesis.  Around 2008ish I decided to dust off my old consoles and I've been at it since.  Not anywhere near some of the collections here but since I got back into gaming in 2008ish the passion hasn't died.

In real life I'm a librarian so I guess the cataloging and collection development and maintenance aspect of the hobby really appeals to me as well.

I decided to sign up here after hearing Duke Togo on the NARC Podcast and learning more of his podcast.  I'm up to episode 5 of the Collectorcast and have added those guys to my podcast rotation.

I'm Zac, and I'm a 26 year-old (nearly 27...close to 30...ugh) attorney out of Louisville, KY. I grew up on the Genesis first and foremost, and then I moved on to the SNES, N64 and from there into the Playstation scene. However, the Genesis will always be my favorite console. I collect a little bit of everything, but my largest collections are my Genesis games (at just over 300) and my Gamecube stuff, which comes in at approximately 260 I believe. I also have an extreme (and for no known reason) love for the Intellivision. I currently have approximately 60 games for the system, most of which are complete in the box.

My collection is pretty diverse overall, spanning all generations of console gaming. I even have Wrestlefest arcade machine, which I absolutely love...however, my one bedroom apartment is pretty cramped with well over 1800 total games lining every wall! I'm sure you all know the cramped situation I'm talking about!

I came across RF Generation after seeing Metal Jesus Rocks' video regarding cataloging sites...and being in dire need of such a resource, I found RF Generation wonderful. I look forward to meeting you all and getting involved with the RF Generation community.

Totally missed the boat on this thread, and I've been posting for a couple days now.  I'm a late 30's gamer of modern systems and gaming relics of yore.  I collect semi-serious/semi-casually, meaning I'm not a hardcore "must be complete in box!" kind of guy, although I've been trying to move more in that direction for any hard box games (i.e. SMS/Genesis and later in plastic cases).  I resigned myself years ago to the fact that obtaining complete games for cardboard boxed games would likely be a stroke of luck, OR a large burden on my wallet :)

I own most of the common systems from the 2600 through the 5th gen, as well as a Wii and PS3 from gen 6, and my Wii U in the current gen, which I love.  I collect mostly as I find stuff in the wild, though I do occasionally go out of my way to find something online, but my budget doesn't really allow for me to do much beyond that, so rather than big scores and grand gesture types of things, stuff trickles in.  I'll find a game or two at Goodwill, or snag a couple PS2 games I find at garage sales, etc.  I think the systems I have the most games for are my beloved Genesis, the original PlayStation (big fan of that system during its original life cycle), and the PS2, which has become a treat to collect for now as people start selling off their collections for peanuts.  I've also built a nice library of PSP games, a fair number of NES carts, and a small, but growing library of Saturn games (including a few Japanese imports).  The systems I'd like to collect for the most are the Saturn, the TurboGrafx-16, and the Dreamcast, though I'm aware that those are all expensive prospects, so I know any collecting I do on those fronts will be slow and expensive.  But I keep grabbing deals I can find, and hope to eventually have a respectable library of games I can look fondly at and know that I've invested both money AND time into the games.

My favorite genres are shmups (though I'm generally not very good at them), platformers, 3rd person action games, ala Syphon Filter, God of War, inFAMOUS, etc. as well as action games in general.  I'm not much of an FPS guy, though I appreciate them for what they are, and have fond memories of early titles like Wolfenstein, Doom, Duke 3D and ROTT.  I've also begun to dig RPG's, having finally finished FF7 this year, as well as owning and loving both Lunar titles.  Realistically, I'll play anything that offers fun, so I'm willing to try most any game once.  I'm not much of a sports fan, outside of college football (Go Huskers!), so other than early 8/16-bit sports games that were fun for me as a kid, I'm not much into them, but I understand the appeal.  I'm also not a big trader, though if I can score some interesting stuff, I might be interested in doing trades now and again to help me fill holes in my collection.  Anyway, enough about me, just glad to be among a few like-minded folks :)

I discovered the site through Metal Jesus Rocks. I was using Backloggery to keep track of my games but this site is a lot better for that purpose. Plus the android app was a huge seller. I only started taking collecting seriously this year, I had about 200ish and have managed to build myself up to a bit over 700 games. I'm pretty pumped! I work for an EA studio as an artist right now. Combining my passion for gaming with collection and work has been a real blast!

I have no idea what my fav genre is anymore.. it used to be rpgs and only rpgs. Now it's rpgs, action/adventure, schmups, survival horrors and a touch of some others. Can't really stand sports games though (sorry people who love Fifa). Anyways.. don't want to go long winded here.. hope to get to know people!

Welcome Rocu,

Sounds like you have been building quite a good sized collection lately. We've had several folks come here from the Metal Jesus Rocks video. Glad you came aboard.

I like to have more variety as of late. Theirs nothing wrong to discover a new style of gameplay.  I'm pretty bad at RPG's, but still like to dabble myself in them.  After all as they say variety is the spice of life.

Welcome to the site Rocu. I think the more diverse titles I play, the more I also don't really have a favorite genre. It's nice to be able to appreciate a variety of genres across a variety of systems. Jump on the forums, there are a lot of good people here.

Kind of new member here.  I have been using the collection tools for a little while, but nothing else.  I am currently going through my Genesis collection and I had 3 controllers that were not listed so I submitted them and got them added.  I figured now that I have moved beyond just tracking my collection I should probably contribute to the forums.  I am JeremiahJT everywhere else I am a member.

I did have a question and I didn't know which forum to post it in so I figured I might as well do it in my hello post.  I have an Archer Cleaner System made for all Sega systems plus the Turbo Grafx-16 and Atari systems and I did not know where it should be added.  Anybody have any idea how I should try to submit it?

Post by: JeremiahJT on December 09, 2014, 06:00:43 PM
On the front it says Sega systems then on the back it says for Genesis, Master System, and Game Gear.  In the instructions it also has a page for Turbo Grafx-16 and Atari systems.  It does not mention any specific Atari system, but it does have a picture of a 2600 Junior.

It is made by Archer, which I believe was only sold at Radio Shack.

The instructions were likely packed in with other cleaners they made as well - sort of a generic instruction manual. The system likely worked for Sega products, but that still makes it Multiple Consoles. ;)

Hi there, everyone. My name is Allen. I stumbled across this site while I was looking for a very rare PS2 controller that I can't seem to find in stock anywhere. Then I found it listed here. It says this person has it. http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=U-072-H-00740-B The exact same PS2 wireless controller that I bought off Amazon a few years ago but went bad recently due to leaving it alone for a whole year letting corrosion get to it =/ I took a liking to it and it became a favorite for him. Then I read somewhere that I have to make an account somewhere to buy it on here. I also read that I have to message someone to buy their item. So how do I do that?? There doesn't seem to be much features on here... Literally just now created an account. >.> So yeah. I really want that controller back =c

Hi,
This site is mainly for collectors and cataloging collections. If you're interested in purchasing it, you would need to send those members a Private Message asking about it. There's one for sale on eBay for cheap right now:

Oh yeah. I noticed the Silver one on there. I grew attached to the blue one so I was looking for another blue. I had also found a black version somewhere, but I might just settle for the Silver wireless one if I can't find the blue wireless one. Though I found a blue wireless one on ebay, but without the receiver thing which makes it useless to use.

There are wireless receivers for sale on eBay too, though I don't know if they strictly pair to the original controller or not.
I think you need 10 posts in order to view profiles and post in the Sale thread.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please

Yeah, I got to thinking that, too. That they might be strictly paired.

Wow, 10 posts. That's quite a bit. I think I got a few to go then....


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on December 12, 2014, 03:53:10 PM
Looked into it - the receiver has the ability to pair any Katana controller. You should be okay if you buy one without the other.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: ChimeiTekinaNasu on December 12, 2014, 03:57:01 PM
Oh, sweet. So like, is it color coded? Does silver receivers work only with silver controllers, or all of the controllers, black, blue, and silver?

just wanted to check but you're aware the page you found on this site isn't a buying page like you find on ebay right? it's just a database for collectors to find out info on everything they own, and to track their collections. the three people who own the controller have it listed in their collections, but not in their "for sale" lists, so there's no guarantee they would sell it.

once you pass the 10 post limit (looks like you only have 2 posts to go) and can message them, try the one called "Johnzsosmooth". he's more likely to reply to you because he was active about a week ago, the other two haven't been active in months for one and over a year for the other.

Hello, my name is Mikey, a.k.a. WWEDX2007.

My favorite gaming system is the PlayStation 2, but I also really like the GameCube.

I stumbled upon this site when my friend 16bit (from Sega-16) told me it'd be a good place to log my collection since GameFAQs was kinda bad in that regard, I started collecting in 2008, and despite having a mostly limited budget I've been able to collect 248 games across 15 platforms as of this writing. My favorite game in my collection (and of all-time) is Sonic Adventure 2.

G'day, I'm Peaky, a collector from Australia.  I collect for most of the major systems from the Mega Drive (Genesis) and SNES up to current gen PS4 and everything in between including handhelds.  I did have almost 20 NES games CiB, however decided to sell them off as I was never attached to the system and felt I could focus better on others.

I've got probably upwards of 1000 games CiB, my biggest collections being PS1 and PS2.  Slowly adding my collections into the database, very time consuming hehe, almost finished with my PC games.

Was never really into collecting growing up, so I guess I came into the hobby very late (after I left school and got a job so I had some disposable income).  It started with a few PS1 games I wanted to buy and play on my brand new PS3.  And suddenly I had hundreds of games from multiple systems.  Unfortunately now I have a mortgage so I can't spend as much as I used to, however I still occasionally pick up games when I can.  I only buy complete in box games, so its a very VERY expensive hobby.

Most recent pickups are Shin Megami Tensei IV for 3DS (LE) and Harvest Moon for SNES.

welcome to RFG, Peaky! I'm in the same boat you are, as I'm not a fan of loose cartridges/discs. It's even worse when you need every insert and the box to be pristine as well.

I'm a huge PS1 fan as well, maybe moreso than any other system. Thank God prices never took off the way NES through GameCube has, and that people have hung onto the jewel cases for the most part.

Tell me about it!  I was pretty amazed about how much my NES games sold for.   Definitely much more than I paid only a couple years earlier.  Looking forward to putting some of that money into some of my other collections.

PS1 is my favourite system too! Only thing I hate is that the PAL jewel cases are so damn easy to crack.

the U.S. ones are likely the same. It's even worse if you crack a longbox because you can't just swap them out with a music CD case. They do have the box protectors but I never got around to buying any.

the PS1 was one of the last systems that had a lot of "pick up and play" style games. the less menus and memory card warnings I have to see, the better.

PAL and NTSC-J is much, much worse than NTSC-U cases. NTSC-U eventually went with normal CD-ROM jewel cases, while PAL and NTSC-J went with proprietary cases that had the same problem as the Saturn cases, with broken hinges and no support behind the front panel. They also look TERRIBLE on a shelf and take up a ton of space.

from what i've seen i don't mind the look of them either, but it does really suck that they're so wide, you can fit so many more standard jewel cases on one shelf than those cases.

My name is Troy, I'm from the Chicagoland area.  I've been collecting on and off since about 1998.  I have around 1,200 games overall (no PC).  I mostly collect games for Nintendo systems (other than Virtual Boy), although I have a pretty decent collection of Sega and Sony stuff too.  My smallest collection is definitely my Turbografx (only 12 games), I regret not starting that one sooner.  I am not going for any complete sets, I just pick up games that I want to play.  I came across this site after stumbling upon Collectorcast.  If I had to pick a favorite system, I'd probably choose the SNES.  My favorite game series is The Legend of Zelda.  However, having two young kids and going through a graduate program, has left me behind in the series a bit.

Nice to have you, Troy78. I was in a similar predicament last year. I think, being in a grad program and this hobby don't mix too well. My collecting was on the decline but as soon as I was out, it has skyrocketed.

Taking classes, holding down a job (or two), and having kids... sounds familiar. Games need some space, so who needs sleep anyway?

Hi, I'm from Sweden. 30 years old. Got my first system in 1991 (Mega-Drive) but I played a lot of NES before on my dads. My favourite system is probably my beloved Saturn even though my favourite games mostly RPG's on the SNES. My collection is not big since I am not a completionist but I rather collect good games basically. And sometimes I buy cheap nockoffs if I find a good deal just for the sake of filling up space :D.

This seems so far like a really nice community and I hope I can contribute and maybe even help make good changes as everything that's great evolves over time :D

Great stuff....finally a podcast where I feel like the every day collector can feel right at home with the big players in the game of video game collecting. Grat info, great conversations. I'll give you my gaming history in a nutshell: Grew up playing Atari 2600 at my Grandparents house. Got a NES when I was about 10 in 1986. Went into a dark period where I didn't game (in highschool), but in College my Roommate got a PS1 when they came out, and we spend many nights drinking beer and playing Tekken, Tomb Raider, Destruction Derby and more. Also picked up a N64 in college and played a ton of 007, WWF No Mercy, Mario Kart, Vigilante 8 and more. Graduated from college and got into PC gaming for a few years. Had a PS2, but spent more time on the PC. About 4 years ago, driving to work, I spotted a NES console on a pile someone had set out with the trash. I saved that little console from the trash (with Super Mario 2 and Spyhunter) and my love for gaming was reborn. I slowly started to build up my NES collection (still only have about 150 Carts....hey, I've got kids...I need to budget), and in the meantime fell in love with hunting down games at thriftstores/garage sales/craigslist. I now have a pretty decent collection of many games covering many systems, from older systems like the Tournament 2000, Intellivision, Action Max - right up to the modern consoles like the WiiU, PS3 (saving up for a PS4), and 3DS. I have 4 boys who all love gaming with me, and it works out well. I buy them games, they play those games until they get bored with them, then I put them in my collection. Anyway, I'm rambling.....just want to say glad to be part of this community. I'm excited to learn from some of the best here and get some pointers from people who share my passion for games.

Hello, I was an old member on here a couple years ago ... but the email I used for the account was compromised and I forgot the password so I'm starting a new one. anyway, I am now married and we are both collectors and this page is shared by both of us... to tell you a bit about us, we're from the state of Michigan, he is 26 and I am 21. He is a fan of modern RPGs and such while I am a fan of retro platformers (well ... really anything retro). now that that's out of the way, it's nice to be back. :3

Hello!
Allow me to reintroduce myself my name is Josh.
It's been a few years. I'm 35 years old. Work and live about 20 minutes west of Pittsburgh, PA. My wife, kids, and work have been keeping me busy. Not much time to enjoy games. Until last week that is. My kids are back in school and I have an eight week lay off. I just played through Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes for the first time even though I picked it up six months ago. I enjoy all my systems NES, SNES, Dreamcast, PS2, Wii, XBOX 360, and PS4. I mostly enjoy stealth and action games. Some of my favorites are Assassin's Creed, Hitman, Metal Gear Solid, Splinter Cell, Sniper Elite, Batman Arkham Games, Grand Theft Auto and Dishonored. I still play my SNES a couple times a year. Enjoy Donkey Kong Country, F-Zero, Killer Instinct, Rock N' Roll Racing, Super Mario All-Stars & Super Mario World... That is who I am and the type games I enjoys. I will see you all around.  8)

Hello everyone. I'm synt4x from Sweden! :)

I started gaming with the NES even though I'm actually slightly too young to have lived through the NES era, because my family always got systems when the new generation came along and stores sold off the old systems for cheap. So I obviously have a soft spot for the NES as well as the SNES, and those are the systems I collect the most for these days.

Most of my collection consists of PAL releases but nowadays I only buy NTSC versions of games, because of the superior 60fps, fullscreen experience. And as we all know, games these days are getting really damn expensive, so if I'm going to pay these stupid prices for them then why would I get the inferior 50hz PAL versions? Sadly this leaves me with few options for getting games other than the internet. eBay is where I get most games but also from forums like Famicomworld and hopefully now rfgeneration as well. :)

I can't believe that I hadn't even heard of rfgeneration until yesterday. It seems to have existed for over a decade! I have actually looked around a bit for an online place to manage my collection but hadn't really found anything great. Retrocollect seemed decent but is mostly focused on PAL. Other places were either too tedious or didn't have a good database. So I've been keeping a spreadsheet instead, as I'm sure most other collectors have as well. But the RFG database seems to be really awesome. I must not have looked hard enough... There were a few games in my collection that didn't have the specific region in the RFG database, but I submitted a region variant for all of them and they were all added very quickly. I'm impressed!

I'm glad I found this place. I think I'll have a great time here. :)

Hi folks!
My name is Goblin. James Goblin.

A short gameography: Warcraft 3 --> Starcraft --> World of Warcraft --> Age of Conan --> Warhammer Online (best game evah! <3), with couple quite short episodes of Eve online (trial), Guild Wars 2 and WoW (a brief nostalgic return) inbetween.

I like sandbox PvP MMORPGs (you can guess by my sig), but I also like Goblins, Trolls, Centaurs, Dwarfs and in general I'm not a fan of all that generic human stuff =)

Hi there, everyone. My name is Allen. I stumbled across this site while I was looking for a very rare PS2 controller that I can't seem to find in stock anywhere. Then I found it listed here. It says this person has it. http://www.rfgeneration.com/PHP/gethwinfo.php?ID=U-072-H-00740-B The exact same PS2 wireless controller that I bought off Amazon a few years ago but went bad recently due to leaving it alone for a whole year letting corrosion get to it =/ I took a liking to it and it became a favorite for him. Then I read somewhere that I have to make an account somewhere to buy it on here. I also read that I have to message someone to buy their item. So how do I do that?? There doesn't seem to be much features on here... Literally just now created an account. >.> So yeah. I really want that controller back =c

just wanted to check but you're aware the page you found on this site isn't a buying page like you find on ebay right? it's just a database for collectors to find out info on everything they own, and to track their collections. the three people who own the controller have it listed in their collections, but not in their "for sale" lists, so there's no guarantee they would sell it.

once you pass the 10 post limit (looks like you only have 2 posts to go) and can message them, try the one called "Johnzsosmooth". he's more likely to reply to you because he was active about a week ago, the other two haven't been active in months for one and over a year for the other.

lol. Long time no see. 1 year later, now doing my 10th post. I'm back at looking for this controller again. lol. Procrastination op. Guess I'll look to see if that person has it now, though might be a bit late. heh

Salutations! My name is Jacob and I currently live in Boise, Idaho.

I've been collecting games since I was cognitive enough to play them, so I have amassed quite a collection (I just need to take my time and upgrade it on this site).

I play video games. A lot. For modern releases (and some DOS Classics) I stick to PC mostly, though I am no elitist. I loooove retro and I have a ton of consoles hooked up my TV, right now including the NES, SNES, PS2, Saturn, Genesis, and XBox 360 among others.

I currently plan on getting a degree in Zoology

I'm sure I will enjoy the community, and I appreciate it already.

Hello. Sorry, I forgot to do this.

Not much special about me, just an old-school gamer who's sadly playing less and less video  games, and overall less involved in the hobby as time passes. One of my current big passions in video gaming is the Contra series, for which I have a little fan site (no shameless plugs, unless requested :P). Other than that, I'm in school and hoping it gets me places :)

Title: Re: Introduce yourself please

Hey! Someone's been reading up at my site, and the prototypes section, no less :)

Yes, please. If you can pass by that area and see the video games section, I'd really appreciate it! I almost had a lead on it last month, but the person hasn't followed up with me. He is probably a dead-end. This is definitely one of the items I'd like to get verified.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on January 06, 2016, 04:03:30 PM
I was curious which prototypes you'd come across yet, but you already know about DreamTR and ianoid's ones.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: prototector on January 06, 2016, 04:49:05 PM
I know that DreamTR had probably the BIGGEST prototype collection at some point. Over the recent years, he significantly trimmed down his arsenal. These are the Contra protos I know that DreamTR had; I had been involved in the release of most of these and I also know their current owners:

-Super C NES (would love to bring closure to this one; I think it's the only one left that I know nothing about)
-Contra IV SNES near-final
-Contra Advance GBA review/beta
-Contra 4 DS early prototype
-Contra: Legacy of War Saturn review/beta
-Neo Contra PS2 E3 preview

ianoid is another power collector, for sure. I think his prominence is disc-based prototypes. I think he has/had tons and an active turnover rate of them. DreamTR's Saturn LoW prototype went to him and then that's who I bought it from a few years ago. I don't know if he has any other Contra protos/pre-releases, but I recently asked him. Said he'd check his collection, waiting for a follow-up.

Do you know of any others from these 2 sellers, or other sellers? I'm always on the look-out for them.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on January 06, 2016, 05:24:06 PM
Try the Nolan brothers. They're always having prototypes go in and out of their hands, and they're mostly EEPROMs from what I remember. Even though it doesn't appear that they have any, they may know where you can find one. You can hit up the Protoculture boards on NintendoAge as well.

FatherJack might know more for C64 and legacy PC stuff, and TheBoss here has his ears to the ground for just about anything Amiga these days. Those two may have some communities you can check, but my suggestion of AssemblerGames seems like you already know.

Ah, I see; yeah, way ahead of you :P I'm a member at both those places, with the Nolans being active on NA. I actually asked them, too; no luck. I've tried all the big proto guys.

I love the home computer stuff from the 80's/90's. Arcade conversions to these are always interesting, and cancelled/unreleased titles for them are also somewhat my interest. With respect to the Contra series, there's the unreleased Amiga conversion; perhaps someone has a build of it on some archived disks somewhere in the world :) Another is confirming whether Ocean worked on their own conversion of it for the same computer, under the Gryzor label (or even if it was just supposed to be a regional release of Contra, a la DOS version). Finally, there's Super C for C64; the recent recovery of Daffy Duck adds some hope here. Could give FatherJack and TheBoss a ring about any of these.

(minor side note: it's actually EPROMs for protos; if someone comes to you with an alleged proto and it's got EEPROMs, which appeared a few times in the past, you're likely about to get swindled ;) )


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on January 06, 2016, 06:06:37 PM
Yeah, sorry, I meant EPROM. It's been a long time since I've talked about protos, and just about as long since I've actually been involved in other communities. I started my collecting life at DigitPress, and moved to RFGen full-time shortly before DigitPress crashed. I've never been big at NintendoAge, SegaAge, Sega-16, AssemblerGames or rackeyboy, but we have many members from those sites that stop by all the time.

Good luck on the proto hunt.

Systems I'm particularly partial to are the NES, Sega CD, PS1, PS2, XBox 360, and XBox One. I'm more of a fan of playing games than collecting them (though I do own a fair number), and I make video reviews of retro games and the occasional modern game or vlog.

My favourite game ever is Planescape Torment.

Hi, my name is Julian. I live in Arvada, CO. Don't really have a favorite system but I'll say the Dreamcast for now. My collection, at the moment, is mainly getting games I remember from my childhood and the ones I missed out on, due to being a kid with no money. Usually try to find the best price, since we are penny pinchers, I like to actually play the game not collect for shelf fodder. Started my gaming on a MacIntosh with Battlezone which was also on the 2600, who knew. Been playing mostly on the PS3 but play classics from time to time. Hope to grow with the community. ;D

I have been using RF gen for a few years now but haven't really gotten into the community.  I do listen to the podcast but that's about it.

I'm a collector from the Detroit area.  My collection doesn't really have a focus but Genesis and PS2 are my two main go to consoles.  I most pick up what ever catches my interest when I see it.  I also have 2 arcade cabs.  An original Millipede I bought when I was 16 and a Space Duel that I found gutted and restored back and is now a MAME cab.  I'm in the middle of a complete cleaning of my game room/office so I took the opportunity to clean and do full inventory of my games.  I'm little over half way done and so far only 3 games where missing from the database and 1 that I sold and forgot to delete.

No kids or pets so giant stacks is the easiest way to keep everything mostly sorted and out of the way for cleaning.  Most of the pile is taken down and sorted into boxes while I finish up the game room.  The biggest pain isn't the games but the piles of technical manuals I have for work and moving shelves around in a small office.  I vaguely remember the color of the walls in here.

I'm still sorting my stuff out into stacks, myself. Currently it looks more like a hoard than a proper collection.

BTW RF Generation is the fave hangout of another Detroit-area-based Sonic/Sega fanboy, usually posting replies on the Word Association Part 2 thread. Maybe you two could meet up for a few game-hunting crawls or something.

I have been using RF gen for a few years now but haven't really gotten into the community.  I do listen to the podcast but that's about it.

I'm a collector from the Detroit area.  My collection doesn't really have a focus but Genesis and PS2 are my two main go to consoles.  I most pick up what ever catches my interest when I see it.  I also have 2 arcade cabs.  An original Millipede I bought when I was 16 and a Space Duel that I found gutted and restored back and is now a MAME cab.  I'm in the middle of a complete cleaning of my game room/office so I took the opportunity to clean and do full inventory of my games.  I'm little over half way done and so far only 3 games where missing from the database and 1 that I sold and forgot to delete.

That is a mighty impressive stack of games. Welcome to the site! Always good to have another Genesis fan on board.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Tristan, and I'm from Eastern Canada. I stumbled upon this site after looking through Digital Press. I was a member of that site about 10 years ago, and bought a good quantity of items from the marketplace, but real life got in the way of my collecting and I ended up selling off the non-essentials. Completely forgot my username and password (my account was probably removed from inactivity lol) so I created a new one.

I'm heavily into retro gaming, specifically the NES and SNES. My favourite games are challenging side-scrollers such as Contra, Ghosts and Goblins, Mega Man, etc, but I'll play just about anything on those two systems.

My game collection is pretty pitiful, I mostly relied on emulation previously (I was a poor student), but would like to finally get into some serious collecting.

Talk to you all soon! :)
-Tristan

I think I am going to reintroduce myself!

Hi!  I'm Ken.  I've been away from these boards for some time.  I was a former blogger for RFGeneration probably 7+ years ago.  I have been an avid collector for 12 or so years.  I have complete sets of:

NES (minus the power 6)
N64
Gamecube
Playstation 2
Odyssey 2
Sega CD

I'm close to done on:

Sega Master System (2 games shy)
SNES (42 games shy)
DS (270 games shy)

I'm also working on Wii and Xbox very slowly.

I'm always up for trading, talking about games, and such.  I also make NES repros!

Nice to meet you all....again!

Hi there everyone! I'm new to RF generation but not new to collecting!

You can call me Avalon or Madi, I'm really big into collecting JRPGS (although I do collect more than that) ! I'm expanding my collection slowly, currently I'm super interested in famicom/super famicom games and I'm a huge fan of playstation 2. I am also trying to get my hands on anything sega - i don't have any of the hardware yet though!

It's lovely meeting everyone, I hope we can become friends!

I have plenty of Sega hardware, and would be more than willing to sell it to you at a discount, but it's expensive to ship to Canada. :'(  Depending on where you're at, you may be able to get something from Crabmaster's shop.

Hello all.

Zinja here,  from Long Island, NY.

I came across this site a few days ago and it looks like the community is pretty good here, so I signed up. I am a collector of mostly NES - onward stuff. I used to have a large collection of games and hardware, but life has gotten in the way over the years. I am now slowly rebuilding that collection. I am a HUGE Castlevania fan.


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please

You'll find a lot of company with the NES here as well as a bunch of resources to help you rebuild that collection.

Which Castlevania is your favorite?


Title: Re: Introduce yourself please

Definitely Symphony of the Night. I have been playing that game at least once a month since it was released. A true masterpiece of gaming.

Welcome to the site The Last Zinja!  We hope that along with logging your collection that you check out our forums and become involved with the site.  We have two active podcasts and a community playthrough where we play a game or two as a group each month.  If you like Castlevania: SotN, you should check out our podcast on the game from a few years ago. We also played Bloodlines last October and Simon's Quest nearly three years ago.

Hey everyone! I've been around for a long time but it has been so long since I have been on the boards I figured I would reintroduce myself.

I currently reside in Mississippi.  I enjoy video games, books, movies, and long walks on the beach ... wait this is the wrong type of introduction.

Seriously, I am starting my collection up again.  I am going after complete NES, SNES, and SMS.  I am an aspiring game designer.  I have been for a number of years, but I am actually really close to completing my first game.

Other than that I like all sorts of IT stuff and just tinkering with things in general.  I look forward to getting to know all of you, or dusting off old friendships as the case may be.

My favorite systems are the obvious choices of Super Nintendo, then the PlayStation because the RPG love on them. I'm a RPG connoisseur so PM me some suggestions or sell some hidden gem RPGs.

Post by: shane on October 19, 2016, 05:42:12 AM
Hello! I'm Shane, and I've had a collection on here for quite a while now. I've recently been focusing on collecting handheld systems, and have been picking up variants as I see them for both a reasonable price and decent condition. Some of my more recent finds are a Spongebob GBA SP, a Mirinda CGB, and a DK3 Game & Watch. I have lost track of how many systems I have a long time ago, but I'm certain it's beyond 100.

I'm a web developer by profession, and a co-founder of Strats (https://strats.co), an adult gamer clan that has a few neat tools for those that stream or are part of a clan in a modern game. I recently moved to NH to be out in the woods and away from city life.

I have always been told that I play through games pretty quick, so recently I tried speedrunning a few games and got pretty good times on each. I got 6th in Axiom Verge 100% after a couple playthroughs, 2nd in Super Win the Game (http://www.speedrun.com/swtg#Any_Current_Patch), and have the world record for Infested (http://www.speedrun.com/Infested), though so far no one has posted another run of it so that's primarily because I was the first to post a time.

I love platformers and Metroid-like games. I tend to stream at least once a week at https://www.twitch.tv/shaneplaysgames, but today I'll likely be watching the debate instead.

Yeah, that's me. I got that and the Castlevania whip. Despite the description, there was one that sold recently on eBay for $200, so I got a little bit of a discount on that. Were you the guys that said you had a site with a database of handhelds, and didn't have info on that? When I grab items that aren't on the site yet I typically submit new items, so I had planned to do that with this one. Just need to grab the DSLR to get decent photos to put up with it. For now, here's some iPhone photos.

The company is based out of Spain, and the console was available to employees. I don't know with certainty that the employee that owned this worked/lived in Spain, but the store owner that put it up for auction said that it was brought in by the employee's husband, and that it was sealed until he thought about taking it in to the store. He opened it to make sure it was in there, I guess.

I'm at a point in my Nintendo handheld collecting that I need to pick up these rare EU/JP systems. I'd love to find the Ozzy Ozzy Ozzy CGB, and will likely buy the ANA handhelds this year.

Welcome, shane!  Mirinda?  Used to be able to get that stuff in the U.K. Section at Meijer, but it has been a time since I've seen it.  We have Jaffa Cakes now, so I'm not complaining, but it would be nice to try it again.

Also, welcome Shane!  I'm behind the 8-ball, and haven't been on the forum as much lately.  Amazing find with that Mirinda GBC!  I love that see-through orange shell.  That's an item I'd love to add to my GB collection at some point.

Hello

I don't tend to share my name on forum boards, but I am 27, male, and I have been playing video games since I was little. The first games I remember playing were on the Atari 2600. Pitfall, Pac-Man, Breakout, Pong, etc.

I didn't actively start collecting until about 5 years ago when I met my (now) wife. When we moved out, she supported and has even helped me in my collecting venture. She pretty much controls the PS1 part of the collection. Now that we have our own house, we have a room completely dedicated to the collection which has grown to well over 800 games and 15 consoles.

Anyway, that's about it. Glad to be here.

Hi Tastyyogurt - welcome to RFG. It sounds like you have quite a booming collection going there. It must be nice to have a wife that is on board with it. My wife tolerates my hobby, but I often get eye rolls. For someone so young, it's interesting that the 2600 was still your first gaming exposure. I suppose the things are so ubiquitous that they are probably hard not to encounter at some point.

It was the first console  my dad had bought and he and I played the games on it all the time. Then came NES, then Sega and SNES and so on. I was introduced into gaming at a very young age and I've never strayed away from it since.

And my wife loves gaming just as much as I do. Her games being Spyro, Diablo, DOOM, and various others.

Thanks guys :D

It's been YEARS since I've been part of a good gaming forum.  The closest thing I have to something like this is the twitch community.  I think the last forums I was a part of actively was the Chrono Crisis forums... anyone here ever a part of those?  It was a fan-made sequel to Chrono Trigger that got CAD'd by Square when they were about 85% finished :( That was back in... holy moley, 2008?  Maybe even '07?

Also, I will definitely check the podcast out!  I bet it's awesome! :D

Hey all....My name is Bryan and I have OCD.  Sorry if I sound like an addict at a substance abuse meeting but I guess with my video gaming habit, that isn't that far from the truth.  :p  I have been gaming since I received my first system back in 1978......and yes, it was an Atari 2600.  I suppose that I would be considered a hoarder since my collection now totals just over 6,500 games and over 100 systems (35 of which are pongs).  Unfortunately it is going to take me quite a while to get my games added in but I do like the fact that I can just check boxes instead of having to type them in.  My main sources have been local video gaming stores, used book stores, eBay, and the occasional yard sale though I have been known to take "video gaming vacations" that have taken me all over the eastern half of the US.  Since I love to travel and have an attachment to video gaming, it only seemed natural to combine the two. :)  My collection was rather small until I discovered eBay and began really adding games back in 2006.  At some point, I hope to add current pictures but my video game room is rather crowded.  I do have pics that are a couple of years old though........  Anyway, I look forward to talking to you all in the future.  Just to let you all know.....I work night shift and do not currently have internet at home.  It may be a little difficult to make timely responses.  Take care. :)

Welcome to the 12 step program. The first step was admitting you have a problem. ;)

Seriously though, you're not alone in the large collection department. Hopefully, the community can offer you a chance to the enjoy the hobby without taking over your life. Welcome to RFG.

Hello, I'm Shane and live in Spicer, Minnesota.  The Collectorcast brought me to the website (I appreciate their banter), and found it interesting.  I have been mildly collecting for five to six years now, and my favorite system is the GameBoy Advance.  Hoping to have a nice time, the forum looks lush with conversations and hope to be apart of them soon.

Thanks for the welcoming reply.  It is good to know that I will not be alone in the 12 step program.  :p  Hopefully I will make a positive impact.  Already I am compiling a list of potential submissions so that is a good start I suppose. :)

EDIT: Pics added to profile page. :)

Howdy fellow collectors!

Long time follower, late participator :)

Love this amazing community and the guys behind the database tools and catalog.

I've been a strictly digital collector on Steam for years, but finally decided to collect physical games once settled (and got a big enough place to house them).

Cheers!

Hi, everyone, my name is Carla and I am 23 years old. I love anime, manga, fanfiction and games. I am a bit new to this whole gaming thing, mostly because my parents were quite strict about studying, but I am trying to get into the swing of things and try out a bit of everything to see what I like.)))

Welcome, and you have almost 45 years or so of gaming to help figure that out. Although I'd guess you probably stick the the last 10 years or so.

I personally I am not into anime at all, in fact I don't care for it. But guess what? I for some reason still like anime based games. One of these is Valkyria Chronicles. I don't seem to care when its in the form of a game. Games enhanced what I already liked when I was a teen 10-15 years ago. I was a huge Star Wars nerd, and games like Knights of the Old Republic and Jedi Knigh: Jedi Outcast and Battlefront to name a few just added to my love of it. Yes, one could argue its just a licensing thing, but who cares. I'm thinking games could do the same for you and the interests you already have, your interest in anime can be enhanced through games based on that.

=) I am quite chatty at 5 in the morning.

Hi everybody I discovered this site about 10 minutes ago and immediately decided to join, which is unusual for me I usually lurk around for a week or so, see what the community is like before jumping in. But that database is just incredible like you have absolutely everything on there demos, long forgotten 3rd party controllers, weird obscure peripherals, memory cards, the dedication (and a bit scary) so I had to join, gamefaqs has nothing on this place.

Anyway I'm from the UK, I've been gaming since the late 90s, my favorite system is the Playstation 2 I love collecting for it so many games and so much variety for said games even over 15 years since I got it I'm still discovering new games. My favorite genres are 3d platformers and stealth.

While I can't say I was officially here when it started, I signed up about a year later, I have been lurking since the first or second week the site was up. There are a couple people still somewhat active from pretty early on me thinks.....welcome back, have fun!

  There are a few that still linger.  Some even abandoned their old and made new due to changes in their life.  People come, people go though.

Hi everyone! I'm newbie here :D. I'm quite a gamer myself (since the SNES era) and currently I'm still playing games, especially RPG. Some of my favorite are: Dragon Age Origins & Inquisitions (both are excellent, Origins has exciting story, Inquisitions with dragons slaying part), Witcher 3 (excellent story telling and exploration), Dark Souls (brutal, but fun... if I can progress), Persona 4 & 5 (just recently, and I'm in love with them).
I hope to learn and share experience with you guys. Thanks!
