Hi all

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

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

Hey Kev, welcome to RF Gen. Hope you enjoy your stay, you'll find people of all walks of life here and yet all with a common passion. Gaming in its many forms. Just an example, I was a Sega nut in my youth and now I'm a hardcore Macintosh gamer.

My name is Tanner I'm 14 years old from Poland, Ohio and my brother and I have been collecting for a couple years now. I like Sega, but I'm also a big Nintendo fan. My goal is just to complete one system.

HOLY SHIT! I'm from Poland too. Never ever thought there'd be anyone else from the Youngstown area on here.
Welcome to the site BTW.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Glad to meet you all.

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

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

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

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

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

Welcome Chainclaw, Hedonism Bot, and Darth Sidious.
I hope you all enjoy your stay here at RF Gen.

Snatcher (play it - it's great)
So very true, and good taste Smiley

A+ for that post Darth Sidious, your English skills are exceptional.
I also hope you're able to get things back on track, as that kinda stuff will really knock you down, and the deeper the depression hits, the harder it is to crawl back up.

It's Skyline Time

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

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

Lastly, great Screenname. Let the games begin!


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

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

Sorry to hear about your losses in the last few years. 2006 was a bad year for me as well. I lost one of my better friends, my grandfather, and my mom. I hope bright days lie ahead for you.


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

Hey, my name's Collin, I'm from Lawrenceburg, TN, a VERY small town in Tennessee, I was born and raised here, still in high school,  (oh yeah, im 15). I joined this site on New Years Day of this year because its a site of people who share the same passion for classic video games that i do.

I have a sort of decent collection, starting exactly a year ago when i bought my first NES, and now i have that, a SNES, Genesis, and a 2600. Thats pretty much all i can think of for now.
