When I started collecting years ago I never really thought I would have a complete set for any system. Even after I found a inbox 32x at a local store for a great price I didn't think I would end up with all the games for the system. Not long after buying my 32x my sister, who was working at a daycare at the time, told me there was a handful of old Sega games sitting in a closet there and they didn't even have a system. She asked if I would want them and I said sure. I figured it would be the typical common junk games (and it mostly was) but in there was a lone, cart only 32x game - Spider-Man Web of Fire. That was the spark to get me going. I thought since I had the hardest game to get, the rest would be easy! This was roughly 10 years ago and this past weekend, I finally picked up the last game I needed to have a complete cart set: Dion Sanders Stupid Expensive Baseball. Yes, I could have put this together a lot fast but that's not how I collect. A LARGE majority of these games came from local shops. Of course this isn't 100% complete as there are a few games missing manuals, posters, boxes, etc. but I couldn't be happier Cheesy



That's so sweet!  Congrats!

Thanks everyone!  I need  to track down Fifa 96 yet and I'll always be on the lookout for the missing stuff.  I don't really have any interest in the Japanese exclusive game unless someone does a fan translation at some point (doubtful) and then I would get a repro.

Congratulations, Bear78! Not an easy feat, especially given the price of a couple of those titles.

My stack of XBox 360 games has surpassed 150 full titles (no demos or non-games). This is the ninth system in my collection to have 150 or more games to go with it.

I'm down to having only 4 Xbox 360 Platinum Hits left in my collection. I've been slowly weeding them out over the last couple years. I like the more uniform look of regular copies versus the bland hit editions.

Whoah, slow down there, speedy; at this rate you'll have the entire North American run by the end of the 22nd century.
