Title: Collection Milestones
Post by: Antimind on July 25, 2004, 01:54:24 AM
Post your milestones here!


As of today I have 1697 items in my database. I realized while putting up new action figures that I have a ton of stuff I haven't added yet (oopsie) so I'm prolly at just about or slightly over 2000.

As far as my list here on the site goes, I'm at 950 as of today. I still have SNES games to add but other than that the rest is handhelds and memorabilia. Crap make that 952. Just remembered to add the GC games I bought in NJ...lol

I don't think I'll hit any major milestones in quite a while. I guess I do have 2 minor ones achieved recently. I just hit 50+ Xbox and 50+ Gamecube games.

the end of last year was my milestone marathon. I rolled passed 500 on NES and PS1, 400 on Genesis, 300 on Atari 2600, 200 on PS2 and 100 on Saturn. It will be some time before I hit another 3 digit milestone. as far as any complete libraries go, that won't happen either.

haven't had any big ones yet, but a minor one.  

(no idea when) 50+ Genesis games

By august i should have a minuimum 50+ NES games 3 systems 7 controllers 3 guns. It turns out i might not only be getting my neighbors but also my uncles NES. if i get my uncles that will put me up to 4 system 9 controllers 4 guns and around 70+ games. NES stuff is way to easy to come by. Its the stuff i want that takes me forever to find.

Post by: Arrrhalomynn on July 26, 2004, 04:29:39 AM
18 more saturn games and I'll have a complete collection. That's the only milestone I'm close to.

Well, setting my sights higher than before, I want to break 200 different boxed titles for the PAL Megadrive by year end.

I am currently at 116 - anything else I get along the way for other systems is a bonus.

Still looking for Master games to swap with Den too.l......

Dude that's somethin to be proud of far as I'm concerned. Around here it's difficult to find Genesis games that are anything but cart only :(


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Sauza12 on July 28, 2004, 08:38:57 AM
I still haven't finished off my 32x collection.   :(
The last three games I need have shown up on Ebay often enough, but I just haven't had any cash to spare.  The sad thing is I don't know if I will have enough spare cash lying around to finish it even by the end of the year unless my Ebay idea works out (still in the planning stages).

On the bright side, I should hit 200 Genesis games by Christmas.  :)  Only about 40 more to go!

Not so much around here, most people kept the game and book in its plastic box.

If you have any of the Genesis games in cardboard boxes and those are complete then thats an accomplishment. I only have one Jurassic Park Rampage Edition.

It looks like 2004 will come to a close without another milestone for me. The most reachable is the PS1 but I'm still about 24 away from the next 3 digit number.

Title: Re: Collection Milestones

Just passed the 1600 game mark.  |D Only 400 more to go for the Y2K club.

Why do you have 2000 games club that is.  :-/


Title: Re: Collection Milestones

Yeah, there are really two types of wives/girlfriends:

That's the truth.  I might also add one other type, though - the type that doesn't really "get" it but is neither mocking nor helpful.  For some reason I don't really understand, my girlfriend lurks around this site all the time, but in reality she doesn't really know much about this hobby.  Strange.

Post by: Izret101 on January 13, 2005, 09:51:17 AM
My mom and most of the rest of my family falls into this category. I just compare it to some of their collections or things they do alot to try and give them somewhat of an idea.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: bum-man on January 13, 2005, 05:58:35 PM
You might have a chance with people that do some kind of collecting, but people who don't collect anything (my wife for example) don't get it and I don't think they ever will.  I just tell her it's either this or I collect empty beer bottles, which of course are full when I buy them!!


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Izret101 on February 02, 2005, 12:59:24 PM
I have just got 325 different titles.
I don't remember buying 25 games but i have them.
I think some of that i got were games i had found i never added or got free as demos.
I think i bought about half and got the other half for free.(Demos and such.)


Title: Re: Collection Milestones

Congratulations!  A winner is you!  The begining of a collection is always the most fun because you run into something you need everywhere you go.  Hell I'm at 900 and I still find that happening rather often.

@Tynstar, Where the hell did that collection come from?  :laugh:  I didn't think you were going full steam into a complete 7800 collection.  Congrats regardless.  |D

I used to say that I had thousands of games, which was true, but i've swapped, or sold off most of the games which I had on tape, or diskette over the last year.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones

@Tynstar,  I saw that thread, but I wasn't sure if that was a complete collection or not.  Damn impressive.

@THX,  Nice collection you got there!  I've been trying to get past 200 Genesis games for a little while now, but I only seem to be running into overpriced games lately.  Congrats!

Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: thx1138 on April 18, 2005, 05:56:23 AM
dilema: I have now broken the 200 PS1 games barrier.

but, one of them is exrental, with a replacement sale cover, another is ex rental, anohter has a replacement box, and  13 are platinum titles.

So, I could say I have 207 PS1, or I could say I have 191.


I think I will have to say 191.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Sauza12 on April 18, 2005, 07:09:37 AM
You should count them all, but replace the ex-rentals.  The platinums are still cool.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: bum-man on May 04, 2005, 05:44:51 PM
I just hit 1100 games listed on the site, that includes over 200 Atari 2600 games, over 150 Genesis & NES games, and over 50 Colecovision and Intelivision games.  And I have games in over 50 different catagories listed now.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Izret101 on May 08, 2005, 11:24:41 AM
Yay i broke 350 different titles.
I also got my first 3 import games.

This also brought me to 2 smaller goals
30 N64 games
35 PS games


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Tynstar on May 14, 2005, 06:39:54 PM
I finally complete my Odyssey 2 library. All 49 games are CIB and the 2 Imagic games are sealed.

I also passed the 1800 game mark. Maybe I will get to the 2k club by the end of the year.

Finally started collecting Intellivision today when I found a lot of 17 games with manuals and overlays with a console along with a SNES model 2 all for 20 dollars.  |D


Also added more items to my database here (827 at the moment) More to come :P

Post by: video_game_addict on May 18, 2005, 06:15:53 PM
After some cleaning up & counting recently I realized I had passed 450 boxed complete 2600 games.  It starts getting hairy when almost everything you're missing are costing $75 & up. :(

The last $2000 I spent bought me roughly 15 games  

I need to work on the Sears boxes to hit that 500 mark, and keep my prices down some if I can..  

I really want to complete my 2600 collection. :)



Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: phoenix1967 on May 18, 2005, 06:32:04 PM

Good luck!  I am trying to get to 300 total 2600 games. But most of mine are loose or loose with manual.

Post by: video_game_addict on May 18, 2005, 08:27:15 PM
These are my two newest games, just received in the mail this afternoon:

(http://members.cox.net/j_riezinger/images/tn_reds.jpg)


I've got some wants that are still under $50, and then I have quite a few Sears branded games to track down, but mostly all I need are high priced games.  Collecting them CIB makes it a little harder.

I've sold off everything else I had though, besides for 5200, so now these are the only ones I collect. My 5200 collection is complete all CIB so I'm not spending much on that, besides for the homebrews as they come out. So I can throw pretty much all my funds to the 2600.

I'm thinking about adding the Vectrex in the mix eventually, since it's rather small, it shouldn't be so hard to buy them all in CIB form.  



Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Tynstar on May 18, 2005, 09:10:14 PM
Did you get those from Matt (Tempest)? And if you did and don't mind me asking did you pay what he was asking?


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: video_game_addict on May 19, 2005, 05:07:23 AM
Yes & yes.

It's interesting to note this is the third guy to find these things, all came from South America. The first was a few months ago, someone on AA bought one copy of each along with alot of other NTSC games, and then he offered on the boards there. I don't know if he ever sold or not though.

Then a guy on ebay,  who had at least 2 Ikaris & 3 Motorodeos, maybe more?  He's kept one of each for his collection & sold 1 Ikari & 2 Motorodeos so far.  He may have more to sell.  His have been going for the same price that Matt was selling for this third guy.  The third guy sent Matt 8 copies of each, Matt kept one set, then the other 7 he's working on selling now.  

I'm not sure if there are any more of them out there or not, but Matt seems to think this guy bought everything the original owner had. So after these are gone, probably won't see anymore around.  

It's alot of money to spend if these turn into common games 6 months from now. :o  I think though, maybe a few boxes of these were purchased from Atari back in the day for some shop in SA, and these are probably all that exist.  Only time will tell.  

I just didn't won't to miss out on them, if these do dry up again.  

It's crazy to think that some of Ataris own could be so rare!

My collection has changed again.

sold a lot of it, again, decided to focus on SEGA.

My SEGA collection is doing very nicely, just shy of 225 boxed Megadrive, and approx 50 boxed SEGA., 40 Saturn

I always seem to have plenty of games for all systems lying about anyway.

I decided to take this new step, of being even more focused, when I ran out of shelf space for my Megadrive titles. My handheld collection is doing quite nicely too, both Gameboy, Gamegear types, and game and watch types - they take up less space, and sit nicely alongside my calculators.

I see it more of an evolution in my collecting, becoming more selective, pruning a growing tree to use a similie, rather than the hatchet job i did to raise funds about a year and half ago.

I passed the 1900 game mark. Once I get the stuff from Antimind that  we did a trade for.

Also passed the 300 game mark for the Atari 2600.

I need 1 more game to have 100 Intellivision game and 12 more to have 100 Saturn games.

that is REAL impressive to have that many completed libraries. I need to narrow my focus one of these days. I do have a fairly large collection but not a single complete library. I'm close on a few of the less impressive ones like PIco and Game.com but that's about it.

Post by: thx1138 on June 16, 2005, 06:27:56 AM
Right I checked. I have 221 unique boxed PAL Meagdrives. Found two pirates lurking in the collection. Damn! They are on the shelf, but not included in my official counts.

Bought a few bits on eBay, and as long as they turn up as described, I now have exactly 225. :)

It's starting to get harder /  more expensive now.

I've downloaded the pdf file from the rfgeneration database, and will check my games off of the list - but I don't know how to number them automatically, I'll have to count them myself, when  print it out.

Well, I've printed it out, and I think that the list has 490 games on there.  ??? :)

Does the Megadrive have some really expensive games. Like $100 and up?

The Genesis doesnt really have any expensive games. Maybe  Miracle Piano. The Blockbuster Championship cart would cost a lot but I dont count that one.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Sauza12 on June 17, 2005, 07:19:24 AM
If I remember correctly, True Lies and Maximum Carnage are both pretty rare on Megadrive.  I'm not 100% though.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Tynstar on June 17, 2005, 07:20:37 AM
But rare on the Genesis doesnt equal expensive. So I was wondering how it was for the Megadrive.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: thx1138 on June 17, 2005, 08:30:46 AM
Well, Streets of Rage 3, often goes for the equivalent of $100 or more US.

not sure about the others.

I'm going to try and get all the Master and Saturns too. Don't know what else I will collect. I'm certainly not going to collect boxed nintendo, I hate cardboard.

@THX,  I'm pretty sure I saw a thread over at DP a while ago that made mention of True Lies being pretty rare.  I'm not sure if that was the Euro version or the Japanese version though.  

@Geon,  Holy shit dude!  :o  Where the hell have you been hiding out?
How many games is that?  You gotta be around 2k.

Post by: thx1138 on July 05, 2005, 03:32:02 AM
I am so close it hurts!  249 boxed Megadrive games!

It was 250, but, I decided that Super 52 was an unofficial release.

I'm not sure it's a pirate, it's not like a 52 in1 rip-off from asia or something like that, but
a chepo multi cart, with crappy games on. However, it doesn't sit right in my collection,
nor would it like right alongside my Jap imports, or Genesis games - so it goes in the freak pile, along with the pirated Mickey Castler of illusion etc

dammit! I had my 250 milestone snatched away by my own fussiness.

As of Tuesday, I will have a Neo-Geo AES.  I've been considering getting one for a while, and I finally got enough money to buy it (thanks to my new job).  Of course, I'm way broke now (The system was $300 and the game was $40.), but that's okay.

*Update*

Well, I got the AES, and it didn't work...so I took it back to the store.  They looked it over, called in the resident SNK expert, and got it figured out.  I come in and pick it up again, take it home, and now it doesn't even turn on. :-/  My luck with this thing is abysmal.  I just hope they can get another in if this one is busted.  *crosses fingers*

*Yet Another Update*

I got it!  The AES is hooked up and working in my room right now.  It turns out they had given me the wrong power cord (apparently different models of AES that look EXACTLY the same use different power cords), so I went to the store and they got me all fixed up.  Super rad!

2600 - 200+
NES & Genesis - 175+
SNES, TI/99, Intelivision,  & Colecovision - 50+

I'd like to hit 1500 before the end of the year.  If it looks like I won't make it I may have to cheat and go thru my PC and Mac titles, or worse yet my Commodore titles.

The games where all Mac games which i also didn't find out until later

The 7th Quest
Kings Quest VI: Heir Today GOne Tomorrow
Myst
Return to Zork

Al of them are boxed don't know about any of the innards haven't had time to check yet.
I assume they will have the manuals and other stuff though just based on the box condition.

EDIT
There where no games in the boxes...
That sucked big.
Ok so now according to the database i have 400 games but i know i really don't....

I managed to hit the 1500 mark of games listed (1528 to be exact) and it looks like my long time system leader 2600 will be moving to #3 soon.  I my Genesis games just tied 2600 and NES is only three behind.  I don't seem to find 2600 stuff I need anymore but I am still finding lots of the other two.  Here's the breakdown:

200+ - 2600, Genesis, NES
50+ - SNES, Handhelds, TI99, Intellivision, Colecovision, PSX

I have games for 58 different systems listed (I just wish that I had all 58 systems!)

Well, this isn't a complete milestone yet, but as I was taking pics of my quickshot accessories I also made a pic of my entire current QuickShot collection while at it and figured I'll post it here...all of these are for the Nintendo NES.  Only 3 QS accessories are missing, the Wizmaster, Wizmaster Wireless (just bought this one CIB so I'll have it soon :D), and the Sighting Scope for the Zapper.  Hopefully I'll manage to pick up the remaining ones soon as well as replace the two loose ones with boxed or better ;)

As soon as I get this shipment in, 5 Virtual Boy Games (1 I already had), I will have passed the 175 mark.  I think that is pretty good since I started collecting this past summer with less than 25 games (Few for Snes, 64, GBA, and Gamecube).  That and I limit myself to paying no more than 3 dollars a cart (more for Gamecube and GBA).

I hit 1700 games listed.  I had 1300 back in Aug (and 1500 in Oct) so it looks like my collection is growing by about a 100 games a month!!  Holy Crap that seems fast.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Izret101 on December 19, 2005, 05:31:38 PM
Holy crap that is fast.
I think i averaged 100ish games a year.

EDIT
I was WAY off.
Quote
With todays purchase i broke 300 individual titles.

Other smaller goals i have accomplished recently
15+ PS2 games
10 GCN games
20 Xbox games
15+ DC games
5 GBA games


I have actually increased my collection by between 1/2 & 2/3rds of its size a year ago.  (I am at 468ish individual titles now)
I doubt i will be able to make it an even 200 games by December 28th.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: captain_nintendo on December 27, 2005, 01:21:54 PM
Broke 1100 titles listed and finally broke the 600 mark for the NES !!  |D

Two Months since my last post in this thread...I have reached the 200 games mark.  If you've read my posts in the small score thread then you know that Ive been focusing alot of my attention on Gamecube and GBA games lately thanks to the big ol' TRU and their $10 sale or markdown.  

Anyway, I am still less than a year into this collection and I think that Im going to stop collecting the old atari (and Coleco and Odyseey, etc) items.  I just dont have fun playing them.  I think that I will focus on the 8 bit to present part of my collection. I know I wont be able to pass a really good deal or a really rare item...I just wont be buying things because "OOH that cart is in better condition than the one I have," and things like that.  So I guess that my decision to limit my search for games is a milestone in itself.  Not as glorious as reaching 200 games, but a milestone just the same!


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Izret101 on January 25, 2006, 05:03:37 PM
w00t
I broke 40 PS2 games and reached 485 different titles.

That seems to be how i am breaking most of my new goals lately.
Well for disc based systems anyways.

Last night I passed the 100 game mark for Playstation.  I am sitting at 103 and I'm going back to get some more games tonight.  Value City department stores has all of thier PS1 games on sale for 2.99 and the sale ends today.  It's mostly greatest hits and particularly bad games, but hey, they are only 3 bucks.

The games I picked up were (no greatest hits):
Apocalypse
Dracula:  The Ressurection
Intellivision Classic Games
Wu-Tang:  Shaolin Style

For not a lot of cash I have 355ish Atari carts. I would have more but I get rid of must variants. Collect variants for the 2600 could drive a person insane.

R8

Boing! (Standard) CIB
Death Trap
Mr. Do!'s Castle
Quest for Quintana Roo
Robin Hood / Sir Lancelot x2
Rubik's Cube

R9

Glib CIB
Ikari Warriors (Sealed)
Spider Maze
Vulture Attack
WaterWolrd CIB

R10

Motorodeo (Sealed, Noway this is a 10 still)

I used the rarity from AtariAge for my stuff.

Wow! That's very impressive! The majority of my games are not boxed but I do have some boxes and instructions. I'll probably try to buy more complete games in the future, starting with some favorites. I did recently win a Ninja Gaiden boxed on ebay.:

Hey Tynstar, you wouldn't happen to have any spare boxes or manuals for Pico would you?  I only have 8 of the games and they are all loose.

Forgot to post that I reached 500 in March with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist for Genesis.  I'm currently at 517 games total.

I also got my 80'th PS2 game last month, which was Scooby Doo!: Night Of 100 Frights.  I'm currently at 83.  I also got my 30'th racing title for the system, which was ChoroQ.  (I enjoy racing games so much that I actually keep track of how many I have).

This month, I got my 130'th racing game, which was Test Drive 5 for the PlayStation.

Congratulations!  Storing those things has got to be a pain!

Antother "sort of" milestone for me, I reached 1300 games yesterday.  Games #1300 was a sealed copy of Mark of Kri.

I think I'm just going to start posting milestones when they reach nice round numbers like 1500 games, 2000 games.  It seems like overkill posting a milestone every time I get another 100 games.

Thanks, congrats to you, too ;)  I was also thinking about waiting until I hit 200 accessories, but I'm at the point where it is hard to come across any accessory that I don't have yet, so these intermediary milestones just remind me that I'm slowly but surely moving on :)  

As for your milestones, I think every hundred new games is a pretty good milestone, because as the total number increases, getting those new 100 won't exactly get any easier ;)

Excluding variants for the same systems.

That is also excluding the demo discs and compilations that have Mortal Kombat on them.

With demos, compilations and variations i should be around 30-35.
I would have to count them up...

How many to go?


According to the database 68 more World wide, 36 more from the US, 26 from Europe, 6 from Japan.

But i know the database is missing some like the Brazilian TecToy releases, and the Aussie releases from Ozisoft.

So i figure at least 80 more world wide once the PAL database gets worked out and i find all the holes in the PC, japan, and other foreign listings.

Tiger Handhelds are going to be a bitch to find in the best condition though. I have one on eBay now that is a CIP version of a loose one i have now.

I kind of lied.

Well, I changed my mind on the 32X, I'm looking at getting a few more games. Like Doom and NBA Jam. I sold Doom, but I am going to repurchase it because I have very fond memories of that port. NBA Jam you can't go wrong with! And *maybe* Metal Head again. Whatever the case, nothing that I'd crave is too expensive.

But still, I have all of the hard to find games, well for me anyway, and half of my games atleast have a manual, and maybe a box! :)

Errr... it turns out I forgot the database had my hardware in it as well. And I traded a few games in recently, so it's actually around 490 games...

Still, I'm quite close to half a thousand games!

Well...   I hit 1,000 different games last night... Well, it'll be at 1,001 when my submissions are put in. :P  I didn't expect to hit the 1,000 mark so soon. I've managed to buy almost 150 games already this year. Momentous occasion I guess...   I might even smoke an extra cig today to celebrate.

Nice milestone man...it's a big one ;) 


I also hit a milestone recently without really realizing it (haven't kept track in a while):

250+ NES accessories including variants! 

I currently have 248 + 2 partials (missing one or more parts) + 5 at Scott's place + 1 or 2 at my parents' place & at least 7-8 more on their way to me!  Hopefully I'll be able to get 300 by the end of the summer!  It's been getting pretty tough finding ones I still need, though.

I'm not sure if you should count the Atari 7800 towards your 2800 or not, tends to taint the overall collection.  ;)

Yeah there's craploads of awesome Xbox games for only $5 tp $10 now. No systems on shelves anymore so they are unloading them. I expect the Gamecube and PS2 will have a crazy period of bargain bin madness as well soon enough.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Tynstar on April 25, 2007, 09:32:13 PM
Gamecube like the N64 wont drop to fast. The Xbox only has 4 more games slated to come out. The PS2 has a lot so it is not a dead system yet.

it may be my area but a complete Endgame was the hardest find. I've seen a couple of Vampire Nights in the past months. It is real good though, imagine if House of the Dead was vampires instead of zombies, and there you have it.

Post by: Izret101 on May 05, 2007, 01:08:13 PM
OK so i just realized a few things...
I hadn't been up to date with a bunch of entries in my collection.
I took care of XBox since i have most of those games with me.
Passed 80 Xbox games.

My first prototype/beta is on it's way to me
Mortal Kombat for Sega CD

When my ebay stuff arrive i will have surpassed 45 Mortal Kombat games excluding variants... technically.

I will also have my 10th imported game also my 5th imported MK game
Mortal Kombat 3 Tiger R-zone bundle

And i have over 780 games again. 787 to be exact. I am probably already over 800 games but i don't have all them with me to be 100% certain. :-/

Approx 30 more US MK releases to go :)(once again excluding variants of course ;))

This kind of a weird one, but something I've been working on.
I've got a game for each letter of the alphabet.  I was stuck on "Y" but after I bought Yar's Revenge yesterday I thought about it, and I found out I already have it, so I actually finished this quite a while ago.
Now, I'll try to do the numbers :laugh:

I try doing the same thing, only I do it for each system.  The SNES is a pain as there's only one title that starts with the letter "Q".  So far, the PS2 only has 2 games that start with the same letter as well.  Quake and some pool game.  As I tend to stick to official released only, it was rather hard for other letters like E for the NES.  Elevator Action and Excitebike are both fun and popular.

As of tomorrow i will have 50 unique Mortal Kombat items listed in my collection.(3 hardware 47 games) I have a couple things i still need to add to the database but they are back north so i have to hold off on those still.

All I need to add the info for the Mortal Kombat II controller i got :)

Also have my 10th import title.(6 from Japan 4 from Europe)

I checked when it was originally posted and i also have 1 game for every letter of the alphabet. I was kinda surprised that the only game i had for Z was Z(an awesome PC RTS). Then i wondered why i was surprised...

I passed 275 NES accessories (279 + 2 partials, & I have a bunch more at my parents' place + on the way).  I wanted to wait until 300 for my next milestone, but I don't know how long it'll be until I pass that, as it's getting really tough finding boxed accessories that I still need. 

I probably also passed a NES game milestone, but I need to go through my latest arrivals first, which I'm planning on doing when I set up my game room in a month or two from now (can't wait ;)).

don't put any effort into it, pfft.  People still want me to pay money for them, and its darn difficult just finding anything in town now.  Especially since I should be spending money on more noble games, like the PS2 FF games or just matching the high prices they want for NES games here.

My goal is to top 1k total games.  I'm still putting games in the database and I estimate I have almost 600 games so 1000 shouldn't be too hard.  I'm mainly concentrating on genesis and nes games.

Glad to finally hit this mark.  Now on to the next 1k games and hardware

Back up to 800+ again after selling most of my loose carts and de-listing my dupes and demos. Took nearly 8 months to get here from 560-ish or so.:P


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: OatBob on August 26, 2007, 01:30:30 AM
me too... I finally broke 800ish.  I decided to push hardware and demos to a separate folder because I felt it had been inflating my collection a bit.  It's definitely more with my sealed games being separated, and not all variants being given their own listings.  Wow, I've come a long way pretty quick.  I think I only had 600ish when I joined last summer.  Then again, PS1 sports games will pump your numbers pretty quick.

I consider 50s to be milestones for my whole collection. i.e. I just got past 550 games. I was at 549 for a while, which was a little unsatisfying. I think I'm at 562.

I also got past 600 items in my online collection database, at 601.

Have you looked at getting used shelves? All the furniture in my game room was used (most was free actually). It may not be exactly what you're looking for, but you can usually make it work. As long as you get solid wood, there is really very little that can damage shelves. Plus, most older furniture will be better quality than the new stuff these days.

I have pretty limited space so I actually need fairly specific shelves so that they'll fit in the room that I have left, otherwise I'd probably just use a couple of the other bookshelves I have around the house.

With a package I got from Ebay last night, I reached my first milestone in a while!

My first complete collection!!!!!

OK, so it was only for the Hyperscan, but it still counts.  I got Spiderman and two booster packs.  Now I just need to get a few more odds and ends and I will have every Hyperscan item ever released.

Reached a minor milestone the other day when I got my 150th PS2 game.  I'm still missing a few of my PS2 games from the break-in last year but I'll rebuy them if I get restitution from the guy.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: NES_Rules on March 15, 2008, 11:10:17 AM
This milestone is a little different. For the first time, I sold a piece of my collection. I've been trying for a couple years now, but no one ever shows up in the end. Anyway, it was an NES with SMB 1,2,3, a Zapper and 1 controller for $50. I thought that was pretty good, I paid $5 for it.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: BadEnoughDude on March 15, 2008, 12:00:13 PM
Sort of follows NES_Rules, but I'm giving a couple of games away today. Nothing too great - a couple 2006 sports titles and Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Aresnal - but a friend just bought her son a PS2 and I thought that these would be good ones to pass along. I would feel bad about giving him R&C but she already got him San Andreas, which sort of gets me off the hook :)

Well, I am still quite new to the collection phenomenon, so I just passed my 200th unique game recently, with the total amount of games now being at a mere 211. Unfortunately, some of the gems on my most wanted list (i.e. the Xenosaga Episode I and II Premium Editions from Japan, the Eternal Arcadia Limited Edition or some of the Growlanser and Langrisser Special Editions) are quite expensive, so I guess I'll need patience more than anything else.

I'm new around here, but i'm just under 300 NES games, hoping by May to be at about 350. Hoping to trade off alot of my duplicates to other collecters, otherwise its to the E-bay graveyard with them.

Just entered my 4000th game into the database tonight, pretty happy 'bout that although I have to go back and list the instruction books :( someday.

I still have around 200 to 250 games left to process into my collection database, and it will be slow because I need to check all my A2600 carts for condition and if they are still working, the bulk of what I have left to list. 

But, pretty happy to own 4k+ games, even if most of my Nes/Snes are cart only.  I love the accessability of a wall of alpha-ed carts!

Not really a milestone, but I realized I had picked up 98 games in the last month.  I only spent like 330$ (a big chunk of that was on a few new releases).  Not too shabby.



Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Sirgin on July 15, 2008, 06:22:51 PM
A milestone for me is starting with a (little) collection of games. The reason I started collecting/playing older games is because I do not want to spend the amounts of money that it costs to keep up with all the latest releases.
I figured for myself I'd rather play all those PS3/360/Wii titles 4-5 years down the row and spend 5 times less money on them, than I would do now if I'd buy them all now.

Oh and maybe for an actual "milestone": I've bought 5 of the 10 consoles I want to have. Still need a N64, Saturn, Dreamcast, Gamecube and Xbox.

BUT (quirky comeback forming!)... but, many people make a separate folder for systems. Would it be fair if marriot_guy considered all his hardware part of his game collection? No, because that would push up his number by multiple hundreds.

Games in one's wanted list, demos, manuals without actual games also count as well. This isn't a race, it's a tracking tool, and how someone counts their items in their collection is up to them.

The collection tools are versatile enough to distinguish software from hardware in one's collection when you view their profile. If you find that the "All Collections" page is a race to be number 1 or a bragging right, then you've missed the point of using them somewhere down the line.  ;)

4300 unique games listed!!  last one was Okami for the Wii, so good one to round out on.  'course, I still gotta test around 100-120 Atari 2600 carts and then list them.  And then go back and track boxes and instructions for all my classic stuff.  And then list systems.  And the rest of my imports not in the database.  So, long way yet to go for me  :-\  ;)
I just took a look at your collection and it is MASSIVE!!! Congrats on that!
Oh and if there's more than 300 things you still have to list, you'll be the #1 collector on RFG :P

I don't know... Den has A LOT of stuff... And he hasn't been a regular here for a while, which is very odd. He probably can update his collection and overtake the lead again.... But still, 4300 games is an intense amount!  :D

WE WANT PICS!!  :laugh:

You know, I don't have nearly as good a collection (imho) as some folks here, mainly because most of my carts (NES, SNES, Atari, etc) are loose with no box or instructions (but good labels, I have lots of games I don't list because of poor condition).  I love the look of hundreds of games on the shelf, but I also just love playing games in general, so playability is still over collectability to me.  Anyhoo, competing for sheer numbers is fun, but I respect those with smaller collections that are CIB more than the possibly larger amount of games I have.  Plus, I'm a bit of a cheapskate, and don't tend to be willing to spend much on rare stuff, prefering (as most of us) to hunt good condition rare finds for cheap, treasure hunt style.

I love reading about people building game collections, no matter the volume.  As long as they have fun with it!

As for pics, I will post eventually, I promise, its just that they are kinda crowded in my living room right now and we are planning on buying a house soon (Gaming dungeon FTW!!) so I've been packing up stuff to prep for that.  One day...;)

Picked up my 100th playstation game today. For those that are interested it was Armored Core: Project Phantasma for $1.50. Also, this marks the 7th system I have 100 or more games for. Honestly, I never thought my collection of PlayStation games would reach this number because I really don't actively search for them. They just happen to be what is cheap and readily available in my area lately. Anyway, here is to 100 more. :drunk: :drunk:

@Atarian75: Your collection looks awesome. And you're only 10 games away from 100 N64 games, too ;)

I know what you mean, I'm always finding PS1 games for around $1. I've pretty much had to quit buying them if they were more than $1, otherwise I'd have more than I could handle.
It's probably due to the fact that were so any many more made compared to other systems. The only games I see more often are PC games.

They range from sort of playable (test drive:lemans,Rush 2049) to completely screwed (most of them) It wouldnt be so bad if it wasnt all of my favorites. Then on top of that ive got two copies of shenmue that look fine but neither one will play more than a couple of minutes.

Keio Flying Squadron (complete)

So I now have a complete Sega CD set. Hopefully Saturn will be next.

When what?

It's an English idiom. "Way back when" is like saying "back then" in reference to whatever you are talking about. So him saying "I loved Revenge... way back when" is just saying "I loved it back when I played it", or "I loved it when I had it".

I'm 2 away from 200 total SNES games and 1 away from 300 total Atari 2600 games, but I'm most likely going to get rid of some of those before getting more, so it's going to be a while before I get those.

I dunno if this counts as a collection milestone or not, probably more of a personal milestone, but I'm going to list it here anyway.

Replaced my first NES Pin Connector today!! After cleaning about 20 games I tried it out and was amazed. No cart jiggling or anything and it worked!!!

Nice job!!  I have a bunch of NES' I want to do that to but haven't gotten around to it.  I am a bit afraid the connector will be a piece of crap and just make it worse.  Where did you get the one you put in?

I ordered a couple of Pin Connectors off of nintendorepairshop.com along with some of their cleaning paste and Gamebits as per NES_Rules's recommendation. Seemed like good prices for everything, especially shipping, and so far I'm really impressed with all the stuff I got.

Passed 800 unique games when I was unpacking a few boxes here in Portland and found a couple of games that I hadn't cataloged. Dipped back under 800 games when I realized that I had gotten rid of a couple of games that were still added to my collection :/ Sitting at 798 right now (and closing in on 900 total). Good chance I will pass both milestones this week when I hunt for new pawns/shops in Portland.

With new additions from CC over 90 pieces of hardware registered.

I really have to finish getting my old stuff entered in here. It would probably get me to around 100-110.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: blcklblskt on March 10, 2009, 03:33:31 PM
After adding the rest of my Game Boy stuff, I now have:

Passed 75 Game Boy games: (83)
Passed 75 Game Boy Color games: (86)
Passed 150 hardware items: (155)
Passed 650 games: (672)

My hardware collection includes controllers, cables, etc., so it doesn't mean I have 155 consoles :P.

My games database does include some PC and non-PC games, some boxes, manuals, etc.  So I probably have closer to 645-650 unique games.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Izret101 on March 12, 2009, 02:57:26 PM
15 Gameboy games(more once i find/re-add the rest)
10+ Gameboy Color Games (same as above)
35 GBA Games (same as above)
85 Xbox Games

130 Demos (again possibly more)


One shy of 140 PS2 games. I found the disc that went with my Half Life box/manual :)

I just figured out that I picked up my 500th game today!

For the record it's Asterix at the Olympic Games for the 360.

I wanted to get my 500th before the end of the year I didn't think I'd find it already but I've gotten some pretty good deals already this year so it happened faster than I thought it would. But now I need to save...... I hope......

360, Halo Edition RE5 Edition. (I think)

Never mind all those different 360 Bundles scott.
There are 2 or 3 of those for each of the "standard" 360 releases(arcade, regular, elite)


Title: Re: Collection Milestones

Thanks. NES is definately one of the most fun systems to collect for me. Im hoping it doesnt take to long to get over 300 because there are still a huge amount of cheap games I'd like to get my hands on before I'm forced to pay more and look harder.

Not sure of a better spot to put this, but figured I'd show you guys my updated game room. I had to move, which sucked. Moving near 3000 games plus systems, boxes etc. Not to mention my Cd and DVD collection. Anyway, there's all the games, SNES are 3 deep, NES are 2, Genny is 3 deep and so on.

About the only milestone in my collection is my original XBOX collection.  It has reached a little over 50 but that includes 4 consoles, tons of accessories I have not completely added and it has the most game library out of all of my games.  This would have been matched with Intellivision since I had 50 games for that console alone but sold all of that off except for a few favorites.  Wasn't something I wanted to do but needed to eat :D



Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: kamakazi20012 on May 20, 2012, 09:09:56 AM
Actually, I just looked at my collection on here.  Seems I jumped over 100 games in total across all consoles in my collection.  Wow...didn't think I had that many.  But, as mentioned earlier, the Original XBOX has the most with NES in second followed by the Atari 5200 sitting at third.  All other consoles (PSOne, PS2, PS3, 360, 2600, XEGS, DC, GEN, Intellivision) barely are worth mentioning.

First, it doesn't red-ring.  Second, it seems to be the easiest console to find games in lots for.  Personally, I'm shocked at how easy it has been to collect for.  My true favorite console is the Atari 5200 4-port.  And the games for it are usually easy to find NOS but can cost a lot more for one game compared to say a collection of 20 XBOX games in my area.  It is a fun console.

All NTSC Sonic the Hedgehog games,spin-offs and compilation games. I also want to point out that I didn't feel the need to buy every sonic game on every platform as all I would be doing is adding doubles of the same game. For example if I own Sonic Hero's on Game Cube I didn't feel the need to buy the PS2 of X-Box versions. Just wanted to own every individual Sonic game in physical form. I also have Sonic the Hedgehog episode 1&2 on XBLA to keep it complete as possible. All disc games are CIB and most carts are loose.

Yeah I still need 3 Japan only Sonic games to complete it. Just keeping it  NTSC for now. The Master System versions released in Europe are the same as the Game Gear versions here in NTSC regions so as stated above I feel like all I would be doing is owning doubles. I can assure you the NTSC collection is 100% complete. Yeah sorry about the picture quality.

NTSC is a video standard used in the US and Japan. Sonic the Hedgehog got a US release on the SMS: http://www.rfgeneration.com/cgi-bin/getinfo.pl?ID=U-031-S-00890-A

Hey thanks for the heads up guys. I take it more as constructive criticism than anything else. It seems as there may always be some sort of double standard when it comes to the word complete. I feel like making this a region free collection will make this a more ideal goal. That pretty much means purchasing all PAL Master System games such as Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, Sonic Blast, Sonic Chaos, Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball, Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Also the Japan only released games I need are Sonic Jam (Game.Com), Sonic Drift (Game Gear) and Tails Skypatrol (Game Gear). I'm sure there are others I need to hunt down. I also missed Sonic Spinball and Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine for Game Gear, somehow they got scratched off my list when I didn't even buy them (Facepalm). I feel like I'm on my own when it comes to defining what it means to have a complete sonic collection as I honestly have yet to see someone else attempt it. Obviously I've went this far into this collection that I'm not giving up. Besides I find it fun hunting these games down and it's always a work in progress. Anyways any help on defining a complete Sonic collection is greatly appreciated. Other than that as I have stated before if I own one complete version on a Sonic game I don't feel the need to buy its ports again whether it be on another console or PC. I could easily triple my collection by doing so and all I would be doing is owning the same game more than once. Anyways I'll provide a better picture of my cartridge games below as they look like crap in the above picture.

I do eventually want to get the cartridge games complete in box some I already have CIB. I think after I complete my goal of getting every Sonic game thats when I would like to get them all complete from all regions. Gonna be a hard task to do but if anyone is crazy enough to do it it's me.

I... want to point out that I didn't feel the need to buy every sonic game on every platform as all I would be doing is adding doubles of the same game.

If it's cheap enough, I'll collect the same game for different platforms. I have GTA III and GTA Vice City for both PS2 and XBox, and The Punisher for XBox and PC.

As for myself: today my Sega Saturn game collection is in double figures-- none of them Sonic titles (sorry, Raze).

Also, my collection of software has surpassed 1000 pieces. After excluding the non-game software, however, I'm short of the millennium mark by just one game.

Going to make #1000 something important?

I wouldn't exactly call a sealed copy of Pandemonium! for the PS1 important by any means, but it looked interesting and cheap enough for me to toss it onto my PS1 stack.

I presently own more than 1000 proper games, although this includes stand-alone handhelds and PC titles. I'm 12 away from 1000 home & handheld console games.

I also now have 75 Sega Genesis/Mega Drive titles, the third console in my overall collection to attain this mark.

I reached 1000 games yesterday with the purchase of Digimon World 3 for $5 at a local Play N Trade.

I was actually going to make the 1000th something important, but as I was buying a cheaply priced, boxed 32x from the store, someone traded in a stack of PS1 games including Tomba, Tomba 2, the aforementioned DW3, and Mega Man Legends for $40. Even though he could've sold one of those Tombas for that much...in fact he almost did it for $25 until he realized he could get more with store credit.

EDIT: Oh yeah, also Digimon World 3 was my 150th RPG.

So my buddy is having a baby and wants to get rid of all his old video game stuff to make room for the new bundle of "joy".  I had no idea what he had, I just knew he had a ton of old nintendo games tucked away in a cabinet somewhere he hasn't opened in years, probably decades.  So I cut a deal with him and bought all his NES games for $150. 

well as it turns out, he had 108 NES games, so I basically paid $1.39 for each game.  Mostly commons and nothing special really, but 40 of them were CIB so that's a pretty sweet deal.

I'm not sure what the value is for a lot of these games.  I started collecting seriously pretty recently so I'm green on all that.  If anyone wants to teach me a few things we'd be best friends for life!

But this one stood out immediately.....

(http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w365/adsanislo/TMNT.jpg)

Completely mint, not a single scratch or dog ear.  It even still has the plastic bag that the cart is packaged in and the little styrofoam piece that it sits on in the box.  I about shit my pants.  I know it's not Bubble Bobble 2 or anything, but it's definitely the biggest score I've made yet so I'm pretty excited about it.  $1.39 for TMNT Tournament Fighters for the NES CIB!

Wow, that is a really FANTASTIC haul. I'm still looking for a TMNT: TF myself and to get that with everything else at such a price is nuts. I know WildBil is looking for CIB NES games he doesn't have if you are looking to turn a little profit, and if not that is a great way to build your collection!

I couldn't tell what the SNK game was because of the reflection, but it looks new and sealed. Awesome.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: RetroRage on June 28, 2012, 06:48:38 PM
It's Mechanized Attack, and I wish it were sealed....

but it was just a troll from the 90's, laying in wait for 22 years to disappoint the crap out of me.  The top of the plastic was split with a razor blade so he could slide the box in and out.  I'm guessing he kept the plastic because there's a label on it with a description of the game.  Cool I guess, but it's still open :/  I'll take a picture of the label and upload it later so you know what I'm talking about

And as far as trades go I'll be interested in the future-ture-ture (sorry my friends and I do that whenever we say the word future, I couldn't help it).  But I'm still building my room, so I'm hanging onto just about everything new I pick up right now.  I do have 6 PS2s and 4 PSones that I'm willing to unload though :)

Stopped in at a random Goodwill on the way from my kid's baseball game tonight on a whim.  They had a rack with CDs and I happened to notice a few NES games.  I started looking them over and found the usual commons: John Elway's QB, Top Gun, World Cup Soccer/Super Spike V'Ball, and then I saw a copy of Break Time: The National Pool Tour.  All of the games were priced $7 each.....uh, hated to pay that much, but it was Goodwill, so the money went to a good cause.  Anyway, the "milestone," right.  This was a great find for me, since I now have a very short list of NES licensed titles.  Break Time is the 650th NES game I have added to my collection.

Picked up my first PAL-region title today-- A CIB Warhammer 40,000: Fire Warrior for the PS2-- even though I don't even have a PAL-region PS2. But for $0.50, I figured it'd be a nice addition to my stack anyway.

Now I'm looking at the blurbs on the back cover, one of which reads, "Starring the voice talents of Tom Baker and...

Broke the 40 NES game plateau and hit 50 for PS1 with that last score. I finally added it to all my collection on here and external spreadsheet.

I have 44 now, and it just surpassed my SNES at 43 to become my 3rd largest system, still trailing the PS2 at 64 and PS1.

Looks like I'm not the only OCD'er around here who likes to track highly specific game collection stats and milestones.

For example, my DS collection now stands at 75 titles, making it the fourth system in my collection to attain this milestone.

However, one of them is a demo, so I'm still one away from having 75 full games.

Another two are Japanese releases-- one of them Japan-exclusive-- which leaves me with 72 full, North America-release titles.

But even more importantly: I now have all 32 of the main-line Skylanders figures, along with all 4 adventure packs and all 4 Legendary figures.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones

My trip to the capital has helped me to get my 4th and 5th CIB 32X games. Virtua Racing and Star Wars Arcade were it respectively.

When I went back to that one trippy store I asked about the 2 boxed 32X games, the one beneath SWA was another Virtua Racing that was in horrific condition. I couldn't even tell from the front the box was so ripped up, so I had to read the spine to figure out what game it was.

I'm also prepared with a bunch of Saturn cases so I can put better games in them when I get them. Sad to say that Saturn stuff around here is not easy to run into, so I'll probably have to resort to trades and online shopping for a good chunk of goodies.

And why wouldn't you be?

After trying it out, the Lynx is a surprisingly fun system.

Speaking of which: this marks my 1200th post, which promotes me from "Sega master System" to...

What?!  :speechless:

You mean you knew about and used an online resource to keep track of books, and didn't think to share it with the rest of us until now?!  :nono:

Especially when there has been some lobbying by a few folks to add strategy guides to the RF Generation database?!

What kind of sick, depraved monster are you, anyway?  :evilsad:

Apparently either a zombie or Frankenstein's monster, judging by your avatar.

Actually, isn't the Franky monster technically a zombie, too? He is a reanimated corpse-- or, rather, a bunch of reanimated corpse parts strung together-- after all.

Ummm... what were we talking about, again?


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: nupoile on August 13, 2012, 03:10:17 PM
As far as I'm concerned there are only about a dozen sites on the internet. I guess I just take it for granted ya'all know about them.

We've been using librarything for years now. It works out really good to keep track of books. The system sources amazon and the library of congress (and a few others). Entering in books is very easy, nearly every modern book has an ISBN number, you simply enter this number into a field, press enter, and a list of possible books pops up. The list is usually just one book long and almost always the right one. Then you click the link for the book, the system add's it to your collection and sets you up for entering in the next book. It is very easy and quick.

Librarything also fills in all the info fields for each book (year, author, etc.) There are a bunch of analytics too, like how many others on the site have a book, how similar peoples collection is to yours, what books you have only one other on the site has, and lots more.

It's been a long time but I think they let you have collections up to 200 for free then you have to pay a one time "donation" of some amount, I think they suggest $25. That gets you in for life.

And yes it would work for strategy guides, anything remotely book like with an ISBN almost always works, it sources amazon remember?

Oh yeah, and if a book isn't in the system you can add it, but that is rare for us. Most of the time a book doesn't show up for us it is more then 80 years old, and even then its not too often.

And I don't seem to be a zombie-Frankenstein, I just checked.

I now have 75 full, North American-release DS games in my collection.

Now I'm slowly working up to the century mark on PS1 titles.

Anal-retentive mode on...

My PS3 game collection has entered double figures.

Um, that means I have 10 of 'em now.

Also, my collection of console-based games-- not PC titles, stand-along handhelds, plug-and-plays, or non-games-- now stands at 1100.

And, thanks mainly to my back-and-forth posts with Raze on the various random-something-or-other threads, I've managed to get to 1400 posts and a new console designation... just like Shadz said I would. And it only took me two weeks!

Finally: I've had 750 approved submissions to the RFG database. Which I must admit is actually pretty puny when compared to RFG's most prolific submitters...

I now have 75 XBox games, the sixth platform in my collection to reach this mark.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Razor Knuckles on September 26, 2012, 08:34:45 PM
^ I wish I had 75 X-Box games.

Looks at collection...

OK I have a few more than that, but nowhere near 1,100 games! Damn you have a good collection Zagnorch. My collection has taken a hit on the collecting pickups in the past few months. Not as rapid as it used to be. Since the breakup with my GF life hasn't been the same, mental issues I guess...

But I'll prevail. I'm still a collector. For me to get over the 1,000 mark may take me a year at this point. I rely on thrift stores for most of my stuff as of lately, and they usually have a great selection.

We some of you may know I completely deleted and re cataloged my collection. Call me crazy, as it did take some time but I'm finally done (except for logging some manuals). Anyway, WELL over the 3000 mark I was shooting for, I have a total of 3,582 games.

Over 650 NES games
Over 450 SNES games
Over 300 Genny & N64 Games
Over 250 PS1 titles

etc. Pretty happy. I've set some goals for myself. By the end of next year, I want to get the last 2 N64 titles I need, and I want to fill out my NES, SNES & Saturn collections as much as possible.

Post by: Zagnorch on October 13, 2012, 11:31:31 PM
I'm tracking the three most likely consoles to be the second in my collection to reach 100 games.

While my PS1 stack is closest at 93 titles, I haven't added anything to it in months. I've had several opportunities to push it toward three figures at a few thrifts, but either the discs were missing from the cases, or the discs were in horrific condition.

My Sega Genesis / Mega Drive stack is in second place at 87 titles. While I've found a few "new" games here and there over the last few months, it's been fairly slow going overall.

Even though it's the "dark horse candidate" at 82 titles, I've been adding XBox games to my collection at a significantly faster rate than the other two. Due to this fact, I'm confident that this will be the next console in my collection to hit the century mark.

Then again, all it takes is to be in the right place at the right time for the race to change dramatically...

Yep, there you are on page 4 of All Collections, putting you in the top 8% of all collectors on this site.

Meanwhile, back on Terra: my XBox game collection is now three spots closer to the century mark, while its two competitors stagnate.

I'm also one away from having 125 PS2 games.

Too bad this isn't the "Collection Almost-Milestones" thread, huh?

I recall starting on page 5 of All Collections when I first submitted my collection. Now I'm just inside the top quarter of page 3. I'm still 50+ items away from the top, however.

BTW got my first Skylanders Giants store-exclusive Giant figure, my first standard-issue Giant figure, and my first Giants triple pack today. Now I just need the actual game so I can play the freakin' thing.

It is funny how many games I have picked up since becoming a collector almost two years ago. Nothing I have picked up was bought in lots. Every game was picked one by one. That kind of scares me to know I have so many games and don't consider myself to be a serious collector. Though it is a marvel to look at.

My collecting has slowed down the past couple of months but seems to be building up more steam now.

In the near-milestone category: the three-way race between my Genesis/MD, PS1, and XBox games to the century mark is as follows:


Sony PlayStation 1:         93

Sega Genesis/Mega Drive: 87

Microsoft XBox:               86


While the XBox stack is in third place, it's the only one of the three I've added to in the last couple months. If things pan out tomorrow, it could very well take the second spot.

There has been a huge disturbance in the Force, and the source is in my collection.

Those 18 NES games snagged for Mr. Jackson pushed my NES collection which lagged in 3rd place into a strong 2nd place, surpassing the PS1's 50 mark and resting at 62, and is now nipping at the heels of the PS2's 65 to let me know that there might be a new kid on the block.

Picked up my first lightcore Skylanders figure today.

On the Race to 100 front: the sudden surge of thrift donations has turned what seemed a shoo-in win for my XBox collection into a nail-biter.

My PlayStation stack has added three more titles in the last week, leaving it four shy of the century mark.

My XBox collection has gone up just two spots since the last update, leaving it a dozen short of a hundy.

And my Genesis/Mega Drive hoard has added a new title for the first time in months, putting it in a tie with the XBox stack.


Sony PlayStation 1: 96

Sega Genesis/Mega Drive: 88

Microsoft XBox: 88


BTW I was at a thrift today that had nine CIB PS1 games I was interested in, but the asking prices were too high. None the less, seeing as how I've been seeing far more second-hand PS1 games than XBox ones, I'm now predicting a PS1 victory, most likely by the end of the first week of December.

Okay, I'm done boring you now. If you managed to stay conscious enough to read this far, congratulations.

How's this for a specific milestone: I picked up my first non-pack-in Wii U game today.

i managed to stay conscious through all that, what do i win?

Your dignity.

And don't you ever lose it again, 'cuz if I find it, I'll just keep it.

Quote
also i'd be surprised if ps1 didn't hit 100 first.

It was a different story a couple weeks ago, when my XBox stack was gaining titles pretty quickly while the PS1 collection wasn't expanding at all. Then all of a sudden, the thrifts had a surge in PS1 titles, and at surprisingly good prices for the most part.

Speaking of which: My PS1 game collection now stands at 98 titles, just a pair away from the century mark. Meanwhile, the XBox collection hasn't even passed 90.

Hehehehehe 69 NES games.

I reached few milestones today:


- 1200 pieces of software overall

- 1200 pieces of software that are NOT classified as non-games or demos

- - The PSP is the eleventh system in my collection to have 50+ games.

- According to the last update of the All Collections list, I have overtaken CrabMaster2000, at least in the "Collection" column. However, he's still well ahead of me in the "Total Owned" column. Yeah, he still totally owns me, all right.

- While it's no longer a mystery that my PS1 stack has surpassed 100 titles, it's now growing at a fast enough rate where it's threatening to overtake my PS2 collection.

- A near-milestone: I'll most likely be making my first appearance on page 2 of the All Collections list by the end of the week.

Man I'm a little embarassed at my piddly breaking of the 100 NES game mark after seeing some of the big numbers on the last page!

But hey, I met my year-end collecting goal so oh well.

Everyone starts somewhere :) Not everyone starts over every year or two like i inevitably do though.... :'(
With todays purchases i am up to 55 Complete NES games and 107 total (118 with doubles).
With todays purchase i broke 300 individual titles.

Other smaller goals i have accomplished recently
15+ PS2 games
10 GCN games
20 Xbox games
15+ DC games
5 GBA games

Passed 750 games in collection.
Broke 30 PC games today. Still slowly adding these

I've been buying and playing older games on their original hardware pretty much my whole life. Thing is, I constantly traded them off and such when I was through, and kinda took it for granted that stuff like SNES games would be cheap forever.

I've only been seriously collecting the past year or so-ish. After my most recent selling-off of some games I just decided I was sick of regretting selling stuff and decided to just stop.

Not really something for my "collection," but thanks to all the Target-salvage Nintendo titles I've picked up recently, I've achieved Gold status on Club Nintendo for the fourth straight year.

If I keep up my present pace, I'll make Platinum status for the first time ever.

Just announced the addition of an Odyssey^2 system and 11 games to my collection.

Congrats!  I have such a love/hate for this system.  I own one and several boxed games and am always on the fence in terms of keeping it.  I love the boxes, presentation of the system, and the way it displays gives a more retro feel to my gameroom, but the gameplay is pretty bad (ironically this coming from an Atari 2600 guy) so I often consider selling it to free up space and buy other titles I need more.  On the flip side, it's not an expensive system to collect for and buying lots of games can be fun.  Good luck in your search.

I'm very happy to have hit some pretty impressive collection milestones for the two systems I primarily collect for:

With some very recent NES additions during the new year, I recently went over the 700 mark (706) for NES software titles. Only 23 more titles for a complete licensed set!

Also surpassed the 400 mark (412) of Atari 2600 software titles with the addition of a very large lot that came in today.  More to come in "Small Scores" with the big scores in this lot and my plans for the duplicate titles.

It's official: I'm presently scraping the very bottom of page 2 of the All Collections: Software list.

Now I'm looking at the race to see which system will be the next in my collection to attain 100 games. Leading the pack is my Genesis/Mega Drive lot at 92 titles, with my DS stack just one behind at 91. Though if I took the international releases out of the running, DS enjoys a 89-to-86 edge.

It'll probably be a little while before either hits three figures, as I've seen little of either I've cared to acquire. I do find it odd, however, that of the three systems in my collection with 100+ titles, none of them are Nintendo platforms. Then again, PS1, PS2, and XBox were pretty prolific in their own right, so maybe it's not so shocking after all.

All righty, beddy-bye time.

Just hit the four digit mark on the All Collections list. I currently have 1007 ways to provide pleasure to myself  :P

Does that mean you have 1006 games?

1006 + Jill?

Anyhoo: I now have all the main-line Skylanders Giants regular-size figures. One Giant figure to go...

Meanwhile, My DS stack is close behind, just six away from one-hundy.

I have all the main-line Giant Skylanders Giants figures. Now I just hafta track down the lightcore figures I don't yet have.

I also picked up my first Japanese 3DO game. And as of this writing, I am the only person on this site who has it in his collection. Or the only person who admits to having it in his collection, anyway.

In the near-milestone department: my Genesis/Mega Drive collection stands at 98 titles, with my DS stack just a little behind with 95. This race to 100 should be pretty tight, as I've recently been acquiring DS games at a slightly faster rate than Genesis games. However, I haven't been picking up much of either lately.

Of course, if I just went with the North American games for each system, my DS collection holds a slim 93-92 lead, and--

...ummm, are you nodding off?

Now I have to convince myself to buy the Game Cube component cable for $100 and flip i LOL.

Edit: I was checking out those boxed lynx games but they are all sports. $9.99 was just more than I was willing to pay, I probably would have done $4.99 on them.

Where do you find them? I'd love to find an inexpensive method of getting more of these. I broke down and paid a bit for an 'Old New Stock' copy of Necromancer, because it's one of the greats to me. But finding even commons for A8 has been tough.  :P

My collection of combined Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games has surpassed 100 titles. It is the fourth platform in my overall collection to hit three figures. However, my North American stack is still 2 shy of a hundy.

My collection has surpassed 1600 pieces overall.

My collection of full console & handheld games-- excluding PC games, stand-alone handhelds, demos, and non-game-designated software-- stands at over 1400 titles.

I also appear to have a solid foothold on page 2 of the All Collections: Software list.

Getting that Sculptor's Cut CIB is a huge step towards getting a complete N64 collection.  Nice job!

I believe there are a few harder to find boxes (Transformers: Beast Wars Transmetals, Super Bowling, etc.), but Sculptor's Cut is far and away the most expensive.

This is true, I got a little anxious to start it and I may have to go back to edit. I've stopped though, especially on the NES titles since there are different versions/variants to look for that I never knew to look for i.e. 3screw/5 screw, oval/round seal. you learn something new everyday!

Don't go learning too much, or you'll go mad with knowledge. Trust me - the amount of PMs and research I've had to answer over the years is staggering, and I'm still learning new things daily. I could probably teach a postgraduate class just on the history of publishers.

I recently passed 75 PSP games, well on my way to 100.  I feel like I'm the only person collecting PSP because I am absolutely crushin' it this year.  I've probably added 40 since January.

I also recently got my 50th PS3 game as well.  PS3 stuff still has plenty of time to get cheaper so I'm not in a huge hurry to snap them up, just picking them up whenever I see that the price is right.

I re-inventoried my Sega Genesis collection and found 1 game needing to be removed and 14 added.  So this little shuffle takes me past 700 to 708!

Hadn't been updating my XBLA games as i have been getting them.
Won a bunch from a competition and nabbed some other ones for free (pricing errors and actual free games).

Anyways sitting at 433 digital games that i will never play again after finishing them and/or won't be able to play(or possibly want to play) before they lose online support.

My DS stack is now at 100 pieces of software, including the Metroid Prime Hunters: First Hunt demo and Personal Trainer: Walking, which is considered a non-game.

Got quite a few milestones on the horizon, as I'm...

- one away from 75 Wii games
- two away from 75 SNES games
- three away from 75 GBA games
- three away from 125 Genesis/Mega Drive games
- four away from 75 full GameCube games
- four away from 50 Game Boy games
- four away from 75 North American PSP games
- five away from 125 XBox games

Which one will be the next to reach its designated milestone? Stay tuned...


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Zagnorch on September 10, 2013, 03:27:11 PM
And we're back with the Milestone Show.


Today, I attained 75 titles for the Wii. I now have seven consoles in my collection with 75 or more games each.

I also now have 100 full-game DS titles, making it the first Nintendo platform-- and the fifth overall-- in my collection to go into three figures.

A few more upcoming milestones:

- 100 North American DS games: two to go
- 1800 overall pieces: eight to go

Now at 1800 overall pieces in my collection... which includes three different cleaning kits and likely a few other things that hardly qualify as "hardware." But the way i see it, if it's in the database, then it counts. And if you don't like it, talk to the powers that be...  :P

I've "collected" 3000 posts. That's approximately 1000 posts for every year I've been on this site. Holy crap, have I really hung around here that long?!

Other than that, I'm still stuck with several near-milestones:

- 200 full PS2 games: 11 away
- 125 full XBox games: 9 away
- 125 Sega Genesis/MD games: 3 away
- 100 NES games: 7 away
- 75 GameCube games: 2 away
- 75 SNES games: 2 away
- 75 GBA games: 2 away
- 75 North American PSP games: 3 away
- 50 Game Boy games: 4 away
- 10 Sega CD games: 1 away

Which one will be the next to go over the top? Tune in next time to find out!

Just completed my Tengen subset.  Took a little less than a year.  I liked the pace.  It kept me from spending too much money on random games that I don't even remember buying a week later.

Far as I know it is. Why, does it seem off to you?  ???

ANYway, today I joined EngineerMike, and now have 100 NES games. This is the sixth platform in my collection to accumulate 100+ titles, and the second Nintendo platform to do so.


Then there are several near-milestones of note, most of which I'm all but certain to reach before the year ends:

- 6 away from 200 PS2 games
   - 9 away from 200 NTSC PS2 games
- 2 away from 125 Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games
   - 9 away from 125 North American Sega Genesis games

- 2 away from 75 GBA games
   - 6 away from 75 North American GBA games
- 2 away from 50 Game Boy games
   - 4 away from 50 North American Game Boy games
- 3 away from 25 XBox 360 games
- 3 away from 25 PS3 games
- 2 away from 10 Wii U games
- 14 away from 1900 pieces overall

Let the race begin...

Today I purchased and downloaded my first noncorporeal PC game from da internetz. Specifically, the downscrolling shooter Raptor: Call of the Shadows from GOG.com.

(http://www.pcgamesarchive.com/archive/r/raptor-call-of-the-shadows/raptor-call-of-the-shadows-1.jpg)


I remember playing the hell out of the floppy-disk shareware version back in the late nineties. After burning out on the game soundtrack, I started alternating between an import CD of Toto's deep tracks, and America's View From the Ground.

64?

Oh sure, just spoil it for everyone else, why don't you.  >:(

In more serious news: I'm inching ever closer to my next big milestone. It's my biggest one yet, as big as my collection (hint, hint).

Stay tuned for more details...

UPDATE: My collection now boasts 1800 pieces of software across all sorts of home consoles, handheld platforms, and PC.

In the last couple weeks I've achieved 75 PS2 games (again, I had over 100 back before the PS3 was a thing). More importantly I finally completed my PS2 Shin Megami Tensei set!

(http://i1101.photobucket.com/albums/g436/gpro83/20140327_161519_zpscjkpxc2u.jpg)

With all the PS1 games I got today I surpassed 65 there. So here's more Atlus stuff.

I randomly found mine at a Gamestop back when they had PS2 games a couple years back. I was too broke to afford it but I wanted it, so I hid it behind the stack of at least 5 copies of 50 Cent Bulletproof. I went back on payday and found it right where I left it.

*EDIT: I keep forgetting to mention that every single one of those is from the first print run, none of the reprints.

Blazing Lasers, Lords of Thunder, Super Star Soldier, Gates of Thunder. There are many more great ones on PC Engine, and if you just want to try them out you could always grab a Turbo Everdrive (not that I would condone that sort of thing).

So I finished this set on Monday but I checked out this thread and saw RetroRage's post and changed my mind about posting mine because I didn't want to be perceived as a "one-upper".  Well, that's not what I'm trying to do.  I completed the NES/SNES part of this about a year ago and then I started on the GB games at that time.  With my recent luck of finding Mega Man V at a local shop, I thought I should finish this up since the hard one just fell into my hands.  I sold a few things and picked up Mega Man III and IV on eBay (at pretty good prices too) recently and this finished the set for me.  ALL of these were local finds or trades with the exception of MM III+IV on GB.

There is another set that I am about to cross the finish line on too, coming soon. :)

I have just passed the 800+ currently owned mark if digitally downloaded titles and hardware count. If formerly owned/borrowed/rented/arcade titles count, I passed the 1000+ mark several years ago. I can no longer manage my collection in its current form, I need to sell off some of my collection as space is now becoming an issues, not to mention many of the rarer games I own are now digitally available. ???

It's a dilemma. I prefer physical to digital, but I can't run a library warehouse here. :'(

These are all I have..took a picture a while back when I finally got my my Mega Man 1 CIB, but I lost that photo so I made a new one..only thing I got recently was the Mega Man X Collection Sealed.

Again you two have a pretty impressive collection on the Nintendo Consoles...Someday I'll get my hands on 7, X3, 4 & 5 GB.

Thanks! :D

If you ever decide to do the custom art for Game Boy 3DS cases, I can link you the art for all 4.  The Cover Project either doesn't have them or the art is sized for an original DS case.  I found box scans online and made my own art for those 4.

Sorry, I should have clarified: I picked up a Korea-region version of an established Japanese gaming system which was wildly popular worldwide...

...and was manufactured in China. Big shocker there, right?

Get all the details in my next Seven-Day Score Card blog.

BTW I thought Daewoo made cars? I'm guessing it's similar to those Japanese outfits that seem to produce a little bit of everything like Yamaha, with its motorcycles, synthesizers, and speaker systems. On a related note: my first bicycle was a Kia.

PS1 would be close. Unfortunately, I traded a lot of my more expensive PS2 stuff to get an Xbox 360 when it launched, since I was dead broke at the time and my PS2's memory card slot broke, making it impossible to load/save on 95% of games (Slot 1).

Thanks for bringing that omission to my attention.

Actually, I've encountered this several times recently, while going through my PS2 game collection for stuff to submit. I had a half-dozen titles that I could have sworn I'd added to my collection page here, but were nowhere to be found. Not sure if this is due to me not remembering to list them, or a bug in the site, or perhaps a little bit of both...

(sidenote): I remember being super upset when it wouldn't work in my PS1.

Best way to experience French FFVI: Watch a Twitch streamer by the name of mistermv. Watch the opera.

Impressive!
Daytona USA as your 100th DC game? Nice, although you can't beat the arcade original.

Your NTSC releases are easier to store than PAL ones, as you have standard CD cases.
If all my PS1 games were NTSC, I might be able to fit them all on the shelf...

Yeah I've had some PAL DC games come into the store. They look fantastic, but they are definitely a pain to store and seem very fragile.

Hey now,

100 PS2 games is nothing to laugh at. I don't think I have that many, and I have close to 3000 games in my collection.

Having 100 video games of any kind is nothing to laugh at, remember, we're like 1%'ers as far as numbers of video games owned.

Wow, we're like the Koch Brothers of gaming or something.

BTW sorry 'bout my apathy; I'm just spoiled as far as game collecting is concerned. I constantly try to keep in mind that not everyone is fortunate enough to live in an area with the kind of resources that are available to me. But, I occasionally slip up. However, I do make an effort to share my good fortune with others. 'Cuz I don't want y'all to be too pissed at me...

Speaking of milestones: this here's my 3500th post. At this rate, I should catch up to Izret's present post count in about 18 more years.

I just passed 2800 total games and finished off two of my goals for this year:  100 total Gamecube games and 365 total games purchased for the year.  I may need to create some more goals or I'm just going to blow through everything well before the end of the year.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones

Just passed the 900 game mark.  :)

All right, let's see how long 'til ya get into the four-figure club!

I just passed 2800 total games...

Damn, I don't even have 2800 overall pieces in my collection... yet.

I'm aiming to make it to Page 1 of All Collections by the end of the year, myself. It might be a stretch, though...


Quote
...100 total Gamecube games...

I'm 15 away from that mark, myself.

In the meantime: As of a few hours ago, I now have 175 PS1 titles in my stack...

...along with 150 XBox games...

...25 XBox Magazine demo discs...

...aaaand 2200 overall pieces.


EDIT: I forgot to notice that the addition of those demo discs helped me surpass 2000 pieces of software in my collection.

"Hey now"

I'm aiming to make it to Page 1 of All Collections by the end of the year, myself.
I'm sitting on page 12 with 488.

I recall being near the bottom of page 5 when I first logged my collection, which was  somewhere around 700 pieces at the time. 3.5 years and 1500 additions later, I've made it to the top half of page 2, which was an all but impossible goal way back when...

Hello again,

I thought I'd throw a weird statistical milestone your way, just for the hell of it.

According to my Collection Stats page, any system with 11 items or less accounts for 0% of my collection. That's 48 systems across 5 different regions, 148 items in all.

It's probably rounding to the closest integer.

EDIT: 11 out of 2214 is 0.49683830171635046%. So close to 0.5, where it would round up to 1%.

I was on like page 5 before I separated my hardware and downloads into separate folders. That felt like cheating though.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Izret101 on June 11, 2014, 03:48:12 PM
I recently deleted mine (again) in the hopes of getting it all accurately listed.

I had (and will again have) a folder for collection, demos, hardware, downloads. Maybe boxes/manuals too. I tried it before but it failed before i ever even finished going through all the loose boxes/manuals/cover art inserts.

Post by: Fleabitten on June 11, 2014, 03:54:56 PM
Starting fresh sounds like fun. Especially considering I didn't look into variations the first time I inputed everything. I just might have a few misrepresented pieces. Like a Canadian play action football cart I found out I had. Not to mention none of my AV or power cables are accounted for.

Post by: Boshamp on June 11, 2014, 08:02:21 PM
99 DS titles...ha ha I was hoping to be over 100 when I documented another box of stuff, but only hit 99. Once I hit 100, it will make 6 systems I have over 100 games for. (I don't count PC or XBLA as systems, personally, I know that is up for debate, I just will not count them in my eyes.)


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Dark Aura on June 11, 2014, 09:06:09 PM
I just hit 506 games. The console I have the most games is PS3 with 97, followed by PS2 with 72. I would say that about 90% of my games are complete, the rest are incomplete or loose.

The last 2 games I bought are:

Cave Story 3D (with holographic cover) for 3DS
Ever 17 Out of Infinity for PC, english version

Both complete and in like-new condition for $200

Cave Story 3D with holographic cover and in the same condition usually goes for $70-$80
Ever 17 Out of Infinity (PC english) in the same condition usually goes for $250-$300

Think so. Can't remember off the top of my head exactly what happened, though. May have just been the DSWare version or the Wii version or something, but SOME Nintendo version was shafted.

Were there any other Mega CD/SEGA CD hybrid games besides Fahrenheit?


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Shadow Kisuragi on June 30, 2014, 06:29:38 PM
There were separate versions, but Fahrenheit was the only one released for Sega CD after the 32X had launched. Night Trap had separate Sega CD and 32X CD versions created, Corpse Killer as well I believe, and there was a double pack with Microcosm and another game for Sega CD. Fahrenheit is the only double-pack for CD/32X CD.

Finally passed 100 Gamecube games, which is my 6th different console to do so.

Number 100 might was Incredible Hulk Ultimate Destruction. That might not seem very special, but its an important one for me. I'm a big Hulk fan and I've wanted this version the most since I like getting all my multiplatform games on the Gamecube whenever possible. I've been trying to get one of these locally for about 5 years now and passed on at least a dozen copies that were all missing the manuals. So many excited moments turned sour. Really happy to end that search.

I just hit 200 PS1 games, making it the second system for me to hit 200 games for. I don't go for complete sets, only what I want so it weeds out a lot of the filler.

finally finished cleaning all the games on 1 out of 3 shelf units!! i've been working on this on and off for a very long time, it's slow going but i've been chipping away at it. the only games i didn't clean were ones that i know i'll replace at some point (usually just the case) so i didn't waste time on those. NES, SNES, GC, Wii, Wii U, PS1, PS2, PS3 are all cleaned now! next up is N64 which is the entire 2nd unit, then the rest of the consoles are all relatively small on the third unit.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Disposed Hero on July 07, 2014, 11:40:51 AM
I know we mostly focus on actually acquiring games around here, but I feel like this counts as a milestone as well:  For the first time since I started collecting, my collection has finally reached a point where I feel the need to clear some of it out.  I used to keep every game that I got my hands on, even the most worthless of old sports titles, but now I simply do not have room for it all.  For the past couple of weeks, I have been pulling some less desirable titles off of my shelves and will start selling them off soon.

My collection is probably at 1200-1250 unique titles now (I have a box full of undocumented Atari 2600 games, hence why my collection is currently at 1170 on RFGen).  When this is all said and done, I'm hoping to have that number down to ~1000.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones

Always a milestone when you can start focusing on quality rather than quantity. ;)


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Fleabitten on July 07, 2014, 09:42:02 PM
Speaking of quality, I traded in some unwanted hardware and doubles at East Coast Gamers. (Go there if you have the chance, they're awesome) It amounted to enough to get Link to the Past. (actually I was a dollar short but they gave it to me anyway  ;D) So I completed my main series Zelda set.

Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Zagnorch on July 08, 2014, 04:34:00 PM
This is not a very concrete milestone, but my collection has grown to the point where I resell at least 3/4ths of the games and hardware I buy at yard sales and thrifts, because I already have those particular games and hardware.

On another note: it likely won't be long before I take on the quality-over-quantity attitude, and start culling my own collection of the "dead wood," as it were. Might actually free up some room so I can navigate the hallways again...

If you ever have the opportunity to get one for a less-than-extortionate price, for Eon's sake GRAB IT.   It's region-free, so it'll work with any DS or DS Lite with a GBA slot. It also works with Space Invaders Extreme 2, Arkanoid DS, and... well, that's it, really. None the less, it really is the best way to play those games.

EDIT: I just looked for one on amazon and saw a picture more from the side. I didn't realize the nub was so elevated. That is truly an awesome DS accessory.

Should probably take and submit a side-shot hardware pic for the database.

In other news: My PS2 collection now stands at 250 full games.

Been a while since I have posted on here - Two things - I passed the 5525 mark in my collection (5526 to be exact at this point --- but will be grown expeditiously soon). 

And my brother pointed out we now have all of the Lost in Blue Games (American Releases that is - I am pondering getting SK 2 from Japan for GBC as it never saw a release here) -

All minty and CIB ta-boot.

Its been a while since I updated my collection. Went over and added a lot of stuff that I've been neglecting. Passed 300 PS2 games (Space Channel 5 Special Edition), 150 PS Games (Harvest Moon Back to Nature), 100 SNES games (Adventures of Batman & Robin), 700 NES games (Tagin Dragon), 100 360 games (Velvet Assasin) and flew right past 2500 games overall.

And without a single Jaguar game so I feel pretty good about that ;)

all my gamecube games are now CIB.

been working on perfecting this set for a while as a little side project from my N64 set. there are still 2 case variants that i would like to replace with original releases, super mario sunshine NFR and smash bros melee "best seller", but otherwise it's all black label and nothing important is missing. i think only 2 don't have precautions booklets.

the following aren't full sets, just other collections of mine that are fully CIB (though maybe not as thoroughly analyzed for condition/variants as gamecube yet):
Microsoft Xbox
Microsoft Xbox 360
Nintendo 3DS
Nintendo DS
Nintendo Gameboy Advance
Nintendo Wii
Nintendo Wii U
Sega 32X
Sega Master System (don't actually have a console for this or 32X yet)
Sega Saturn
Sony Playstation 3 (damn those modern games that don't come with physical manuals, confusing the issue)
Sony Playstation Vita

that i'm just trying to CIB everything i own, gamecube and otherwise. i only have 24 gamecube games but a lot of them were missing things and a few were player's choice variants before. i'm happy to have them all the way i want them to be now barring minor condition issues and a couple minor variants that i'd rather have the original releases of.

I have never seen games in the wild though, and it seems there were more than a few games for it, so I think collecting for it would be rough, which I translate into a coolness factor. Ha ha

I agree, but quality is in the mind of the beholder. Technical specs are out the window, the experience you have is how you would judge "quality", and that is different for everyone. I would think more people have experienced the 32X than the Jaguar. The real question is for those who have played both. I am curious to know myself. Does the Jaguar's larger library of games offer some quality to the system, or does the 32X with fewer games have better quality overall?


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Crabmaster2000 on August 17, 2014, 11:49:48 AM
I've had fun with both systems. There are about the same number of titles I'm interested in on both. I consider them extremely close in terms of enjoyment. 32X gets a slight edge for looking cooler, having a much better controller and the sexy yellow boxes ;)

Coing up fast on 2300 unique pieces overall. Gonna hit the thrifts tomorrow morning to see if I'll find something to put me over the top.

Meanwhile, I've been discovering stuff in my home cleanup efforts that weren't listed on my collection page, even though I'd have sworn I added them right after I found them...

I hit the 800+ entries mark this year, with physical medium somewhere around ~700. Although that number will start going down now that I realize I'm not really a true collector anymore in the traditional sense and really prefer to play my games as opposed to collecting them. And since I haven't really touched my legacy consoles in years (and many of those games are now digitally available via emulation), I really don't have much desire to keep all the old stuff around anymore, as much as I loved it back in the day. That and space is starting to become an issue. It's a bit too hard to manage a large collection, I can't even imagine owning 1k games, let alone 8k, like some people I know. :'(

The day may be coming when I quit gaming for good. Particularly if the digital model succeeds.

Funny you say that, but Chase the Chuckwagon has seen a significant drop over the last few years. You can now find it fairly often for under $50! I'd love to put together a Spectravision subset (6 games remaining), but it's a rather pricey goal to attain (not as bad as Tigervision or CommaVid, but still). Good news is that it seems the 2600 market is beginning to deflate a bit seeing that I got both of these games for under $100. These would have cost me close to $200 just a year ago.

It seems anything from ATLUS, XSEED, or NIS would be an honorable choice for milestones on the PS2.

I am shocked to see that I have gone over 200 PS2 titles without really trying to collect for it much, just several trips to Gamestop in high school, grabbing titles as they got cheap, and only a couple sports titles in the mix. 2 MLB the Show titles, but no EA stuff.

Though it pales in comparison, I did pick up a non-TMSS Model 1 Genesis.  After picking up Metal Storm, it was my most sought item.  One finally walked into my local shop, and then I walked right out with it.

The only idea that comes to mind is a combination of rarity and demand. The show has had a cult following ever since it was first aired and has still only gained momentum. I wish I knew more about why certain games fall where they do, if I did, I would be a professional game flipper and quit my job. ha ha

Yeah I've been looking for it forever too. I've got an xbox version, but this is the first PS2 version I've ever seen.

I haven't even seen an XBOX version before. My 6th gen order of operations for multi-system releases is GCN, PS2, and then XBOX, so I always look for the PS2 version over the XBOX for games not released on the 'Cube. Sadly, Futurama was only released for the Gamecube in Europe...otherwise I might have got it closer to its release in high school.

Hey now!

Three milestones attained with today's pickups:

- 2400 pieces overall
- 2200 pieces of software
- 100 PSP games

The latter includes international releases; I'm presently at 93 North American PSP titles. PSP is the seventh system in my collection that I have 100+ games for, the third PlayStation system, and the second portable system.

About... 135 of them are complete. Buying manuals on ebay really sucks but I'm dumb and want to go complete.

Also how are you guys storing your games. I see you guys with 300+ Genesis and OMG that must take up so much room.

I've been using these http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/sauder-5-shelf-bookcase-select-cherry-finish-411897/6000109757089 100$ bookcases that look okay and they fit about 120 genesis games. Gonna need more :(

At 305 current Genesis titles, my collection takes up an entire shelf...with the games stacked vertically as many as I can per shelf. I will need to get a second shelf (and likely a 3rd) to house a complete set.

The hang tags make it tough but would you have more room if you stacked them versus just having them sit up?

The hang tags made it difficult for me to stack mine as I indicated, so I made the decision to remove them (please no one throw stones at me!) with a very sharp set of scissors which would result in a clean edge for stacking ease.

i think most of them could if you made them, though i would be wary of that personally as it weakens the plastic and might break them off. still much better than outright removing them.

Calm down guys. There are very few "proprietary" cases, and it's just the case being "damaged", not anything else. There are a ton of replacement cases out there in the world.

Some of the Genesis hang tabs don't fold very well, and they crease when they bend. The hang tabs were mainly just there for display purposes, much like the NES hang tabs, but for NES cases they moved to having the retailer apply them on the outside.

I had significant difficulties with many of them being unwilling to bend or to bend enough to make stacking a neat, painless endeavor. That's why I made the decision to remove them.

It has been my goal to complete the set. Growing up with the system, I already have a lot of the more expensive and rarer titles out of the way from regular "lifespan" purchases. Shouldn't be too hard, but it is becoming very hard to find titles I don't already own locally, and once I pull the trigger on starting purchases online...it will get much more expensive for me.

No, I do not have that gem. I keep hoping I will come across it in the junk bin someday. It will probably be one of the last I pick up unless I get lucky enough to find it in the wild mixed in with the other sports titles.

As far as the number of licensed titles for a complete set, I am not sure. I figured I would look it up and calculate once I get under 100 or so left to buy. I haven't been able to find a reliable, easy to read list online yet either.

T&C ruled.  A neighbor kid had that, and we used to play it a ton.  I'm partial to The Karate Kid, mostly because my best friend as a kid had that cart, and we played it quite a bit.  I'd admit that it's not a great game, but I don't think it's as completely terrible as most people say it is.  It's totally playable, despite a few issues, and controls well enough.

Nice Zag.  So that's what, 5% of the ps2 library?  It's ridiculous how many games that console crapped out.

Considering the fact that the PS2 is the best-selling home console of all time, it should come as no surprise that there were so many games made for it.

And in case you care, my PS2 game collection is well on its way to hitting 300 full titles-- no demos or software designated a "non-game"-- by the end of the year. My PS1 stack is a distant second, with a little under 200 titles, which I'll likely reach by the end of the year as well. My XBox game stack might hit two-hundy by that time as well, you never know.

But when it happens, you'll read it here first.

A few other collections of mine that are likely to join the three-figure club before the New Year:

- North American PSP: 2 away

- Wii: 9 away

   - North American Wii: 10 away

I just finished off my last realistic goal for 2014 and hit 100 Wii games.  The only goal that I set that I still haven't reached, and probably won't this year is finish off my 32x collection.  I had a nice little stockpile of cash saved up for it, but then I remembered I'm an adult that had some bills in dire need of paying and I couldn't justify sitting on it anymore.  I might be able to get it in a few months, but not before the end of the year.

Today I picked up Donkey Kong Country 3, which puts me at 100 SNES games.

The SNES makes 9 total systems I own 100 games or more for.

The Genesis today became my 5th system I have 100 games for. The other 4 being PS2 (263), PS1 (213), Gamecube (120), and Dreamcast (100)

Number 100 was Desert Fox of all things, it was cheap at the local game store.

I have 4 more systems with at least 90. The Xbox 360 and DS are both sitting at 98. The original Xbox is at 95 and the N64 is at 94 .Thinking one of my goals next year will be to get 10 systems to 100 games. Those 4 should be easy but nothing else is that close. My next closest systems are all in the mid 70s.

Thanks Zag, just contact leej07 to see what he wants to do as far as purchasing it from you. He may need the controller too. I'm selling him a system for very cheap, but my local store sells the power adapters for $15.....which would make the total package unreasonable.

I discovered Sonic only a year or so ago, through the Sonic Mega Collection Plus on the PS2. I fell in love with the Genesis rather quickly after that, and when I later got the Sega Genesis Collection for PSP... well, I was hooked. The rest, as they say, is history.

32x set is complete!

Thank you to everyone who helped me throw this set together. 

First here's the loose stuff.  I'll upgrade eventually.  Some of these are cheap like Moto Cross, but Blackthorne is gonna be pricey. Thank you Bickman for After Burner, Primal Rage, and RBI Baseball. 

(http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w365/adsanislo/20141113_192833_zpsbupxqusj.jpg)

Here's the common stuff.  I had no trouble hunting these down.

(http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w365/adsanislo/20141113_193154_zpsaxey7f8y.jpg)

These guys are a little more uncommon and took some work finding.  Thank you GamerNick for Zaxxon's Motherbase.

(http://i1072.photobucket.com/albums/w365/adsanislo/20141113_193348_zpsh5bcjrcw.jpg)

The fantastic CD/32x games.

I just got in a set of 13 SNES games, including Power Rangers Zeo: Battle Racers, thus completing my set of SNES Power Rangers games...why I find that to be a milestone, I don't know, but what I find really surprising is how good they are.  While some are definitely better than others(The Fighting Edition being awesome), there aren't any that I would call terrible...though we'll see how I feel after I really get into PRZ: Battle Racers...

@Ack - Totally, the Power Rangers games on the SNES are fantastic. I'm expecting a big SNES lot in the mail within a week or two that'll bump me up to my next milestone.

Just passed 450 PS2 games. Fullmetal Alchemist 2 was the lucky title to push me over

Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: techwizard on November 18, 2014, 09:30:33 PM
Is that game any better than the first FFXIII?

i haven't broken the seal on it yet, picked it up new for $25. i played the first 2 and i enjoyed the first one way more than the second. i enjoyed the characters (for the most part) and the story, even with it's flaws. the gameplay obviously has problems, but i feel like most of those who hate on it give up early on. about halfway through the game it opens up considerably and dispels the hallway. combat also gets better later on...i hear the "press X to win" argument, which is somewhat true, but most of the combat is really in your choice of character roles, which you can change on the fly, then the game essentially plays itself based on your selections with some manual choices. if you look at it from that perspective it's a lot more fun, you just have to remember the gameplay is in the menus not the battles themselves.

the second game had way better gameplay overall, but the story was so awful that i just couldn't get into it, i took over a year to finally beat it. i've heard the third is better than the first 2, so hopefully that's true, but the 2nd left a sour taste in my mouth so it'll be a while before i jump into the third.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: RetroRage on November 18, 2014, 11:29:41 PM
I loved the combat in FFXIII, in fact it's one of the most fun FF combat systems I've played.  I almost finished it, but the story wasn't compelling enough to see it through the end.

I've been stuck at 230ish on the 'Cube for a while now, since shifting my focus almost exclusively to my Genesis collection. I have knocked off some of the harder to find titles for cheap, but there are still a few of the more expensive ones to go (i.e. some of the combo titles, Pokemon Box, Cubivore and Digimon). I did come across the NCAA game, however, which is likely the lowest print run outside of maybe the Pokemon Box.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Chaos Bleeds puts me at 350 Gamecube titles. Still not sure exactly how many I have left, but I am positive I am over halfway there.

Edit: According to Wikipedia, there were 561 North American Gamecube games released. So until I find more concrete evidence, that is what I am going with.

With the addition of RayCrisis I am almost there in completing a Working Designs set but unfortunately some of the TG16 games are going to be a little pricey.  But aside from the TG16/CD Games I am only missing one game Vanguard Bandits on PS1.

Made it to 300 NES games yesterday. Never, as a kid back in '88, did I think it was possible to own 300 NES games.  8) So today my inner 9 year-old relishes this accomplishment, before I return to work tomorrow, and work through until Monday.  :-\

AVE, Sachan, Tengen, and Wisdom Tree the big unlicensed companies?  Any cartridge that is not the standard grey cart is unlicensed, correct?


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Duke.Togo on December 26, 2014, 08:36:33 PM
Basically, there was also Camerica, SEI, Bunch Games (Sachen stuff), Active Enterprises, Color Dreams (later Wisdom Tree), and outliers like Racermate Challenge II and Calton/Myriad.

Most US NES collectors exclude direct Sachen carts, as there was no evidence they were directly sold and distributed in North America, although they may have been brought in small batches by importers. A later Sachen title like Huge Insect is not included as it was after the commercial lifespan of the system. If you want to stir up an NES collector hornet's nest, try to justify including Sachen. ;)

In finally getting around to catalog my handheld stuff that wasn't boxed, I found a GBA game that isn't in the database. It's a 2 in 1 of Hot Wheels Stunt Track Challenge and World Race. How do I go about having it entered into the database?

Yeah My girlfriend says the video games are off limits to the living room. ( maybe 1 or 2 moderns in the living room ( way for me to dump the wii out of my game room )). I have her friend who has ALOT of free time to do the inventory prices. Ebay  Amazon for anything he cant find on Price charter ( like cart with manual only ). Then with that total I guess I can get myself some insurance incase something happens.  Items like the Super Cassettevision, Philips N60 and a few others will be interesting to see how he gets a price for them.

Hey Russ, Ill be out your way in the next few months to check out new thrifting places, ( plus an excuse to go  gaming when my gf goes to see her friends) what store do you work at ( thats your friends ) also is there any new music CD of your group?

If I recall correctly, I think I started somewhere on Page 5 of the All Collections: All section. More than four years later, I'm just five spots down on Page 2. Making Page 1 will take quite some doing, however; The last guy on Page 1, our very own Bickman2k, boasts 2784 pieces, and I haven't quite made it to 2600 yet.

In other milestone news: I picked up my first Didj game, CIB no less.

Oh, and I'm making tremendous progress toward my year-end goal of 375 Genesis games. I'm now at 342. 353 will mark the halfway point in the journey to a complete US set.

Wow, some of your collections must be amazing.  I'm more than a little jealous, although it also makes me glad in a way, because I still have a lot of the "hunt" left before I'll be in the same ballpark as most of you.  I enjoy the hunting and finding aspect of collecting, which is why (aside from the financial consideration) I tend to not buy large lots.  I go nuts when I see stuff cheap at pawn shops and Goodwill, primarily because I can score it for pennies on the dollar, but otherwise, I try not to buy too many games at once if I'm buying at a game shop.  I enjoy taking my time with some of the acquisition.  Does it mean I may never achieve a full set of anything?  Sure.  But at the end of the day, the fun I have with collecting is more important to me than the actual reaching of the goal of the full set, or whatever goal I've set for myself.  I do have to say, however, I'm not far from reaching the personal goal/milestone of owning every North American released shmup for the original PlayStation.  I think I have 2 or 3 left, including 1 variant.

I've managed to accrue the majority of my Genesis games (in 4ish years of collecting them) from various thrift/pawn shops, as well as a few Craigslist lots here and there....of course, I've bought several from game stores as well, but only if they were substantially cheaper than what I would be paying for the same online.

Just about all of mine were from thrift and local stores, though I had to purchase my Miracle Piano through a friend of a friend here on RFGeneration. Worth every penny to me though.

It's interesting to watch your Genesis collection grow, zcrich. You come across a completely different set of games than I did.


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: techwizard on January 26, 2015, 06:18:29 PM
local collecting is almost impossible for me when going for a complete CIB n64 set. there are 5 game stores in the area that gobble up most of the market, so thrift stores are nearly always dry. that and CIB n64 is extremely uncommon around here, and when it does show up it tends to be in rough shape. i'm almost forced to go through ebay and other online options, that's where i've picked up a lot of my N64 collection. though i did manage to snag a sculptor's cut manual (and cart separately) locally.

Most any cardboard in my area is beat up, and most of the plastic clamshell cases have sun damage if they're at a thrift. I've had to pick and choose condition, otherwise I'd have most of the Genesis set done. :'(


Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Boshamp on January 26, 2015, 11:15:50 PM
My collection has mostly been thrifted as well, but when I was in high school/college and had the luxury of still living at home, I spent a lot at my local Gamestop. I wouldn't change that though. As much as I hate GS nowadays, it was responsible for me being able to get most of the rare and expensive Gamecube stuff when it was still pretty cheap. Overall, I would estimate that it will have saved me at least a thousand dollars compared to if I were to have started collecting those later. Titles like Fire Emblem and Skies of Arcadia are very expensive now and I picked 'em up when they were in the under $20 bin.

For the milestone I originally came to post, I have hit 25 Game Boy Color games with Duke Nukem.

DS is a system i rarely see anyone having more than a relatively small number of games for, even though it has such a huge library. i don't know if i've heard of anyone having more than 125 before, that's pretty cool. would you say you have many that are worthwhile to pick up, or do you just tend to accumulate them at random in your big thrift crawls?

300 NTSC PS2 games.

150 Sega Genesis / Mega Drive games.

125 North American DS games.

DS is a system i rarely see anyone having more than a relatively small number of games for, even though it has such a huge library. i don't know if i've heard of anyone having more than 125 before, that's pretty cool. would you say you have many that are worthwhile to pick up, or do you just tend to accumulate them at random in your big thrift crawls?

If the price is right, I'll buy anything that looks like it'd be interesting to play. Otherwise, I'll either give it a pass or-- if I can turn a good profit on it-- buy it for resale... which provides funds to buy even more stuff I might want to play or resell... and so on and so forth.

186 for me. Gamestop is practically giving them away right now. I hit up the B2G1 deal a few times now and did all $0.99 games the first couple times, then went up and did $1.99 titles.

Edit: Snagged a couple great 3DS titles today at a local thrift. Numbers 10 and 11 for my 3DS collection are DKC: Returns 3D and LoZ: A Link Between Worlds.

I've now surpassed 275 NES games (this was one of my 2015 goals...way underestimated). I also finally eclipsed 100 SNES games, and I am nearing my 2015 goal for 375 Genesis games (at 368). I need to reassess my goals for the year.

It's hard to say what lucky number 100 was since the last several games I got all came in the same ebay lot, so I'll just say it was Mega Man 5.  I'm glad to finally have that one!

I didn't even realize that I had hit the milestone until I looked up to see how many DS games that put me at. ha ha

If I did though, I would pick M.A.D. That was my bread and butter two player game for me and my little brother growing up.

Edit: Snagged The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds today for my 15th 3DS game. I suppose I should buy a 3DS to play them on, but unfortunately, I worked Friday morning when every new 3DS in the state of Colorado was sold out, so I got some waiting to do.

Piglet's BIG Game turned out to be a pretty BIG milestone as my 400th GameCube title.

Provided everything is tagged correctly (Original Release - which filters out variants and homebrews, and filtering out Non-Game genre) and submitted to the database, 251? Curious how that stacks up to the actual number. Staff has the ability to search for Release Type. I should really port that over to the Database Search.

A few milestones today:

Yoshi's Island DS marks 200 titles for the DS for me.

Chessmaster marks 100 titles for the Xbox.

Tomb Raider marks 300 titles for the Xbox 360.

Mega Man is my 20th amiibo.

At some point, my PS1 collection surpassed my PS2 collection, which I never thought would happen with all the budget titles I have picked up for the PS2 over the years.

Nice! I just got my Mega Man and Sonic locally, grabbed 2 Mega Man so I could open one to use. Also got my Rosalina, Shulk and Lucario in the mail which puts me to 26 Amiibos. After talking with the stores in town it doesn't sound like we've had Ike and King Dedede up here quite yet. Hopefully soon.

Having more PS than PS2 games just seems wierd....

It does feel very weird, but in a way, I like it. Saying I have 200 PS2 games isn't anything to write home about because of all the Maddens and cheap stuff people assume come with the number. (Of which, I actually own very few and am quite proud of my PS2 collection because of a lot of the quality in it). But if I say 200 PS games, it seems to be a bit more impactful. I would also think there were a LOT more PS2 games produced, making the PS number a little more significant.

I was able to snag Ike, Mega, and Sonic from Target.com during the 7 minutes they were all up at the same time on the site for free shipping. Rosalina was released on Super Bowl Sunday, so I was able to stand in line for her myself, but Meta Knight was on a Friday, so my wife offered to stand in line for me and was able to snag one of two extras they had outside of pre-orders. Shulk came up on Gamestop.com for a second release in May, so I have him on the way too. All I am missing from wave 3 are Dedede and Lucario.

I also won the weight loss challenge at work and scored an $80 gift card to Amazon.com, so that will cover most of all six from wave 4 if I can get in and get them all pre-ordered at the same time when they become available.

I got very lucky and was able to trade an extra Shiek for a Captain Falcon about a week ago, but aside from that, I haven't been able to trade for any of the rares from the first two waves.

Surpassed 6100 Games (6104 Actual) with a Sega Game that finishes a subset for Genesis (Sega CD, & Game Gear).  I'll post more about it later on here after I gather the set together.

The Subset complete across Sega Platforms (not that there were many platforms this set was on) - The North American Sega Club Release Set -- All are CIB except clearly Bonkers - if anyone knows of anyone who has a CIB or Box & Instructions for grabs let me know.  Also Wacky Worlds & Berenstain Bears is Brand New.

ALSO Forgot to mention - Berenstain Bears on Genesis I do have that CIB just forgot to grab it out will take a better picture later.

I reached 1000 pieces to my collection.  I am 88 games away from having 1000 games, so I got another milestone coming up soon, and at the rate I have been picking stuff up lately it should come relatively soon.

I guess when I reach 1000 games, my next goal will be to double it. Let's see how long it takes me to do it.

I'm at 80 something DS games.  But I'm super picky and don't have tons of money so I'll never reach huge milestones because every single one of my games has to be near gem mint.  I bought most of my games new sealed at the store.  I still have the plastic around my GBA games with only the top cut off and the top flaps with no creases.  I have about 38 GBA games.  I will never have 100 in that condition.  :)

Title: Re: Collection Milestones
Post by: Boshamp on April 07, 2015, 09:51:00 PM
It is to me. Ha ha I was given a PS3 when they came out and didn't buy my first game for it until last year. My mentality was largely focused on the 360, and the PS3 had nothing I wanted aside from like 3 titles during the first few years it was out, so I ignored it entirely until I started seeing stuff in the dollar bin for the system. Even with its lengthy life coming to an end, I think there might be only about 20 games for the PS3 that would interest me. Maybe 30.

Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast marks 425 unique GameCube games for me. It is starting to get extremely difficult to find titles I do not already own. Heck, I got on eBay and did a search and the only title out of the 200 I looked through was Ikaruga. Looks like that might be one I will own in the near future if I can get a good deal on it.

Yeah, I am a little under 1000, my collection did not really take off until last year, when I started concentrating most of my extra money to my collection. I pretty much had to stop collecting comics, and buying things new to even do it. I got into collecting about 2010. So it has taken me a while to get there. I probably increased my collection by 1/3 this year alone.

Just like Flee said, getting things for a bargain is the way to go. I rarely ever buy a game brand new, because I know unless it is a very small print run or collector's edition, I will see it for $10 less in a few months used.

Thrift stores, hit it them up as often as you can. Check ebay often to see if there are any steals on there. I have gotten wholesale lots off ebay for really great deals. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen.  If I buy games on ebay it is mostly through auctions. I rarely ever get games using the Buy it Now option, since they are usually priced at market value or more.  I only use the Buy It Now, when I see a really good price. I got some great grabs using this method. 

You have to be patient and don't get discouraged if the Thrift Stores are dry, keep going back to them. I am under the thinking that eventually most things end up at the thrift store. Call me delusional :)

I would also suggest looking on here for stuff, since a lot of people on here sell things for less than market value.

Happy Hunting and Goodspeed!

ya dont go to alot of thrift stores. but there some nice flea markets in my area and ill start hitting those more often. and garage sale season is here so ill keep my eye out. plus theres a great video game store in my area. some prices on the more well known titles are pretty pricey but every now and then i find great games for a great price so its a great place to go.i just found the collectors edition of final fantasy xii  mint for 10 bucks.

Wow. You sound a lot like me, Fokakis. I also gave up on my comic collecting to try and focus on games for a bit. I am a single guy and work a good job. I have spent a lot of money the past couple years, but have managed to build a very decent 1000+ game library. I am guessing that two years ago, I had MAYBE 75 games?

My journey to 6300+ has been a doozie to say the least but now that I can actually afford shopping (which I will be cutting back quite a bit) it's still fun to go out and find good deals sadly we have one indoor flea market and one person has a huge game set up and he is way over priced like eBay overprice.  There are plenty of good people on here that could help you get a decent collection started without breaking your bank. I have hooked fokakis up quite a bit myself as he has done the same for me! 

this is a great community steven1994 and we are here to help :-)

there  are guys at my flea market too who have tons of retro games but there prices are so high. i never go to them i always look through the booths with random stuff everywhere. thats where you find the good stuff. you have to dig but finding megaman 1 for 2 bucks makes it all worth it.

Yep, I would say my collection was pretty close to yours two years ago. I really do miss comics, I got so many good ones, and so many great stories out there, I have yet to read.  Maybe I will pick it up again, someday. Definitely not now, though.

I hear that the GBA release of the original Sonic the Hedgehog is one of the worst ports ever. Apparently there's a lot of lag involved. Best to send it over to Razor Knuckles and wash your hands of the whole horror show.

Myself, I re-milestoned a recent un-milestoning by getting back up 200+ full PS1 games.

Never played Skylanders, actually. I like to go for more retro stuff, like Atari or Sega.

I really wish piece number 500 would be a VGA cable for my Dreamcast, because I've yet to have the pleasure of hooking it up to a television. But those are too expensive for my budget, so it'll probably be a Wii game, instead.

Rockman 2-5 are still really reasonable.  I actually bought extras of 4 & 5 from senseiman to give to a friend.  Rockman 1 & 6, though, well, I had to spend a bit to get those.

Reached 225 Genesis games with Grind Stormer.
I'm definitely at a point where I pretty much have to complete a NA set
and at that same point where doing so seems so far off and expensive to do. It's the best.

With the delivery of Metroid yesterday, I reached 10 FDS games.

The list:

Castlevania

Meikyuu Jiin Debaba

Smash Ping Pong

Super Mario Bros. 2 (For Super Players)

The Legend of Zelda

Kid Icarus

Kick Challenger: Air Foot Yasai no Kuni no Ashisenshi

Bio Miracle Bokutte Upa

Yume Koujou Doki Doki Panic

Metroid

Despite being ~30 years old, all my disks (which are all retail release disks) work fine.  Meikyuu Jiin Debaba and Smash Ping Pong were even new old stock, still sealed with the Disk-kun sticker.

I started collecting about a year ago and I reached 100 physical games yesterday with a big Saturn lot.
So I picked out my full collection as it is now and thought I'd share a happy moment for me.
I have some doublets now but (and also Model 1 and Model 2) but I might trade / sell them in the future.

Looks like I recently surpassed 75 Game Boy titles, making it the 15th non-PC system, the 8th Nintendo system, the 4th handheld system, and the 3rd Nintendo handheld system in my collection to reach this milestone.

I also now have 10 Japanese Game Boy games.

I also recently attained 125 PSP games, making it the 7th non-PC system, the 2nd handheld system, the 3rd Sony system, and the only Sony handheld system in my collection to attain this mark.

BTW if there's any other minutiae about my collection you'd like to know about in intimate and exhaustive detail, don't be afraid to ask. It's obvious I'm not lacking in spare time...

UPDATE: With the submission of this post, I've "collected" 4600 posts on the RF Generation forums.

Passed 150 DS games today (up to 152). Spent the last 2 days hitting every Gamestop in the area and grabbing tons of cheapo DS games. Also ordered a bunch online which aren't here yet. Picked up 46 titles between them, none more than $4.99. (only 2 at that price even, most were .99 or 1.99) Only picked up games that look like good titles. Once the rest are here I'll be up to 166. Once my Steins Gate shows up in the next day or two I'll be up to 40 Vita titles as well. The DS is my third system to pass 150 games (after the PS1 and PS2). The Vita will be my 18th system to pass 40 games.

Collectors editions are nice but I can fit at least 20-30 Famicom games in the same space.

The amount of Konami exclusives alone justifies the decision.

Since I first discovered this place, my overall collection has gone from about 600 pieces to nearly 3000, from Page 7 of All Collections to the bottom half of Page 1. Took me almost 5 years and tens of thousands of miles of driving around. It's been quite the adventure, and it isn't over yet...
