I have a few goals for 2017

- complete my Magnavox Odyssey 2 (lack 1), Game.com (lack 1), and Vectrex (lack 4) collections

- reach 7,500 games (I need to finish typing in my games (approx 6,500).  Right now, I am about halfway done.)

- seal the basement so that I can put my collection down there (If you have seen pics of my current setup, you know why I need to move them.)  The basement is twice as large so that would definitely help.

Slightly Revised 2017 Collecting Plans

Continue to organize unwieldy collection on RFGeneration.com

Thin down collection of extraneous bits (sports games, doubles, etc.)

Get to 500 NES games.  PAL included, Homebrew included, Famicom excluded.

Buy more physical Homebrew games.  NES primarily, but as many as possible.

Centralize and make use of my CRT TVs and PVMs.

I'm thinking of starting collecting games, especially C64 games and maybe magazines. I want my first purchase to be a bit special so sometime this year I will try to get various versions of my favourite game Wizball.

Scissors cuts paper, paper covers rock, rock crushes lizard, lizard poisons Spock, Spock smashes scissors, scissors decapitates lizard, lizard eats paper, paper disproves Spock, Spock vaporizes rock, and as it always has, rock crushes scissors.

I think writing down your goals and being able to check them off as you accomplish them actually kinda helps get them accomplished.
May seem kinda small but am trying to save up for a down payment on a house.

- 30 PSP Titles (13 Currently)
- 200 N64 Titles (174 Currently)
- 100 PS1 Titles (86 Currently)
- 10 PS2 Trade Demos (Only 3 currently)

also find a original map for my incomplete copy of Brigandine, which is likely never to happen.

What is a signature?

I think my goal will be to finish off the Xbox 360 library and sell most of my other stuff.

It's kind of nice when you only have one goal for the year and you achieve it early.  Being unemployed for medical reasons doesn't give me much in the way of disposable income, but being that I started the year 8 titles shy of the full NES library, I decided I would try to knock off one of those games.  Not terribly difficult considering one of them was Lethal Weapon, but when I doubled it up and got a Moon Ranger cart as well, it leaves me with 6 games to go, with 5 being reasonably achievable when I get back to work (the Panesians, Myriad, and Cheetahmen II are easily attainable within a couple months of saving).  Only Stadium Events will be a bitch.

The only other goal I have is to get my collection list updated here.  I've slowly been chipping away at it over the last few months, and it's given me a reason to start going through the piles of stuff I haven't looked at in ages and try to get it all organized.  This one may not be done in the forseeable future though...I have a LOT of stuff to go through Tongue

My goals for this year was simple

1.) Engagement ring for the gf.  ( Accomplished along with giving it to her )
2.) Add 10 more Atari 8 bit carts I didnt own into the collection.
3.) Add the last 6 systems I need for my US console collection.
4.) Work to land the 3 import systems at the top of my list ( Apple Pippin, FM Towns Marty and Sega Teradrive )
5.) Get to 3500 games and 140 consoles with variations.

Only #1 has happened so far.

Currently looking for :

Atari 8 bit
+ game cartridges ( all brands and most titles )
+ Prototype and Demo cartridges
+ manuals and boxes
+ Atari 130XE system, and any system boxes outside of the Atari 400 system.
