Post by: warpedflash on March 09, 2011, 06:33:18 am
I spotted that there is not actually an introduction thread on this site yet :D So I figured I would create one as I am new here.

Hi, I'm Wapedflash and collect a little bit of everything! Have small collections on a range of consoles but have got to the stage where I am looking to expand the software side of things :D

You win the internet for posting our first duplicate thread! haha. Anyways I'm Matt, the guy who is building all of this stuff. Over the past few years I've sold off most of my collection and mainly collect NES and SMS now. I see you posted some suggestion in another thread, so I'm heading there to address them now. :)

I'm tpugmire, site admin and database cleaner extraordinaire!  If you notice any errors in the database, please let me know.  As for my collection, I collect for the following systems:
Atari 2600
Atari 8-Bit Computer Series
NES
SNES
N64
GameCube
Wii
Gameboy (All)
NDS
Sega Genesis
PS1
PS2
XBOX
Turbografx 16 (and PC Engine, thanks to my region mod)
And anything else I happen to stumble upon...

I don't have all that many games, at least compared to atariboy, but my few gamer friends are impressed at how much old stuff I have and still play.  They call my house the Utah Museum of Ancient Gaming.

Hey, I'm Scott, Also an admin. I set up the style guide, so if you have any questions involving it, let me know.

I have a ton of gaming stuff and swag, and all my Nintendo consoles are still hooked up to my TV. My main collection is the Game Boy / Game Boy Color, with a focus on complete systems and accessories. I also collect Castlevania games and related items.

This thread is beginning to sound like an A.A. meeting. :)

Hmm, seems like a good opportunity to do my first post.

I'm Jonathan, 23 years old, living in Québec (Canada), trying to find a stable job as a web developer/webmaster (whichever I find first). I've been gaming since I was about 3 years old (started early!), growing up mostly on Nintendo consoles, but still loving the competition. I started actually collecting games about 3 years ago, mostly building up my NES collection but occasionally buying other games or systems. To see what I collect there's this nifty new "View Collection" link in the forums, check it out!
As for what I want to collect... Well, I'm not much for getting complete collections. I just want a bunch of systems with all the good games that are available for them. I did the error of buying games I didn't want on the NES for the sake of collecting, and it's something I probably won't repeat for any other system, I don't really see the point of getting games I don't want.

I don't think my collection is huge currently, but it is quite sizeable. I enjoy it.

Hi my name is Dean and I too am a "site admin and database cleaner extraordinaire!". I collect for just about any console I can get my hands on. I am currently working on a complete North America release for the Dreamcast. I have been collecting ever since receiving my first ColecoVision, which I still have and it still works. I just enjoy collecting and finding things in the wild.

I'm Gary, "SpaceHarrier" from the Digital Press forums.  My collection isn't that big, but I'm not one to go for fullsets or anything.  I just collect a bit here and there, trying to get a good cross-section of the best games (and some less common titles), across all genres, for the consoles that I own.

Hi! I'm John from the interwebz...  If you ever see pceslayer on any other site/forum or anywhere else it is I.

I own a ton of consoles and games and am working on completing my US Sega Master System set. Only have about 19 left to go.

*Edit*
Not really a ton, just over 1000... I'm actually quite picky when it comes to the 16bit + consoles :/

I'm Raven! And also go by Sriq on most websites. Came here via Reddit looking for a game cataloging website, and was pleasantly surprised at finding one :D

My collection is really Xbox 360-centric. I also have a bit from the PS2, PSX, NDS, and SNES, but I'm definitely still new to this.

Hello! My name's Brian. I live in Austin, TX and mostly collect NES carts that I enjoy playing. I do have a small SNES collection but am not really working on it. I've owned and sold most consoles and plenty of games for each, but have settled my collection down big time.

My main gaming rig is a 360 which I've got a decent collection for as well, but I trade those out often. My gamertag is "nah dew" for anyone who wants to friend up and play some co-op stuff or whatever.

I'm also an avid vinyl record collector, but my Discogs profile is nowhere near complete. Here's a link anyway: http://www.discogs.com/collection?user=briankylesmith

I post frequently on CAG as well, for any fellow cheapskates. My user name is "bsmiff" there.
Title: Re: Intro thread

I'm "Possebon", obviously that's not my real name, but Richard's a pretty shit name and I try and avoid it.

I'm guessing I'm the only person from Europe considering I've had to input pretty much every game I own so far - ah well.

I'm mostly collecting PS1 / PS2 (not exactly retro, but you know), with a view of getting more but not really wanting to start it until I feel I've made more progress with the Playstation games.
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: matt on April 08, 2011, 09:05:40 pm
@possebon Welcome to the site! I noticed the PAL games being added today and I wondered who it was. Appreciate the hard work and hope you enjoy the site! Let me know if you have any suggestions.

Post by: amauriel on May 24, 2011, 12:27:55 am
I thought I'd drop my name in here as well, just to let you guys know who the crazy person is who's putting in Japanese games...

I'm Amauriel, and about any site you see that name on, it's me.  My husband and I actually collect consoles, and the original quest was to get all the consoles released in the U.S. However, I've always been more about the games than he is, and we are getting to really rare consoles left, so we've expanded out the last couple of years.

Given that we have almost any console anyone's ever heard of, we collect anything and everything that strikes our fancy, but I personally concentrate on SNES and DS, and tend to gravitate toward RPGs and girly games (Harvest Moon, Cooking Mama, Animal Crossing, etc.).

I speak a smattering of Japanese and spent a summer there as an exchange student, so every once in a while, I treat myself to a game that I know my husband will never get to play. It's the little things. (^_^)

Gratz on the site, guys! I've tried out other collection sites before but this is probably the easiest one I've seen.  And the Android App makes me very happy as well!
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: matt on May 24, 2011, 12:33:56 am
@amauriel

Welcome to the site! We really appreciate the additions especially because no one has really started to tackle most of the Japanese games. Please let me know if you have any suggestions or comments.

Thanks for the kind words!

Thanks! Hopefully we can put more love into the Android app soon. There just so much going on the to-do list for the site itself, that it's currently getting a little overlooked. I have a feeling, the next couple weeks are going to be pretty hectic.

Post by: desocietas on July 11, 2011, 01:32:28 pm
I might as well introduce myself since I've started poking around the site.

I'm Nancy and am pretty excited about this site.  For a while I've been griping to friends that there's no good collection site that's a) free, b) not terrible to look at, and c) not opposed to input on really getting at filling a void.  So far, I'm really digging everything and can see the potential for even more great stuff.

Anyway, to finish off the intro:

I'm not quite so old skool as to personally own anything before my Playstation 2 (though my brothers and I did grow up with the Atari, NES, and 80s PC games), but I do love my video games.  I'm making a list of to-add titles, many of which so far are on portable consoles.  RPGish stuff.  The list is twenty deep already, and it's only a portion of my DS games.

Also, I work in a library and am big on details, so I'm all about stuff like proper cataloging and style guides.  Consistency is so important with things like this.

Hope I'll be of some help!

Hi all, just joined a couple of days ago and thought I'd say hello too. Had been on the lookout for an alternative to my current MS Excel and Word based inventory for a while now and then out of the blue I noticed the collection image in someone's signature on some other forum which lead me here, and I must say I was very pleasantly surprised to see how well everything is already coming along such as the badge system and android app... brilliant :-)

I myself am Belgian which prolly makes me the second European guy on the forum or so... That and the fact that I too have quite a few Japanese games will leave me with a load of work it seems before I have my entire collection on here.

I have around 700 games I think, ranging from the really old stuff like Atari and Videopac through to NES, SMS, SNES, Megadrive, Mega CD, Saturn, Dreamcast, Gamecube, PS1 and PS2, and the handhelds like Gameboy classic, advance, DS, and Game Gear, and of course PC. It's clear to me that I have a lot of work to do seeing as there aren't that many PAL games in the system yet, but I hope to be able to start adding all of my stuff systematically over the next days/weeks.

I've already added a couple of items to get the hang of it and everything does indeed feel very user friendly. Great job so far!!!
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: scott on July 21, 2011, 12:45:21 pm
Welcome from the other side of the world! If you see anything that isn't correct regarding European/PAL games, don't be afraid to speak up. Its no secret that there is a real lack of PAL support currently, that should change soon though.

I collect Final Fantasy Games (Everything Final Fantasy) along with the systems to play them. I wanted to start collecting at a younger age but didn't have the funds. A month of so ago I saw a friend of mines collection (mega man), got nostalgic and started my collection.

Being administrator for a website where it needs people to grow and submit information, I just had to join this website and try to give it a hand in away way I can.

To fun times!

I'm Andrew, but feel free to just call me @andrew around here!

I graduated a few months ago with some BS degree in math & physics. Around that time is when I stated to consider myself a collector, even though I have been playing (and apparently collecting) games my whole life. I love the SNES (probably for nostalgic reasons), and I'm a huge Metal Gear Solid fan. I will be going to graduate school, but I decided to take one year off so I can catch up on my video game playing! Either that, or to teach in China, but I'm still trying to get everything straightened out. You'll probably be seeing more of me around here.

Cheers!

Hello all. I'm Anthony.

I'm a graphic designer and web developer in training. I was just about to try programing something to catalog my collection when I found this place through /r/gamecollecting.

I collect just about anything from the NES on (I'm not really into the old atari and computer stuff). I worked at a video game store for about three years and I'm currently working at another video game store that was just opened by my friend, who was the manager at the other store. I'm also just now getting really interested in collecting arcade games and I have a MAME cabinet project in the works.

I love what I've seen of the site so far and I'm really looking forward to seeing it grow.

Welcome! I'm also into graphics, mostly self taught, though I did go to college for it for a bit. Things came up, long story, blah blah. I've also built my own MAME cab from scratch. It's a great project, I'm sure you'll have fun working on it.

Guess it's about time I posted in here. My name is David. I'm a commodities trader by profession and I collect for anything NES and up. The NES was my first console when I was young and my collecting began several years ago when I was on a nostalgia kick. I've always played games but didn't become a serious collector until about 3 years ago. I really enjoy modding/hacking any little electronic device I can, systems included. Most of the systems I have have been modified in some way. I probably should have chosen a degree in computer science or engineering while I was in school but my job pays the bills and I enjoy going to work so I can't really complain.

I have had the desire to build a MAME cab for several years. Guess I need to get on that soon so I can be one of the cool kids!

Might as well get my first post out of the way and stop lurking.  I just recently started collecting mainly NES, SNES, and Genesis games for the most part, but open to just about everything I may find on the hunt.  I will now have a place to put all my games and play them so that is why the collecting has started.  So far I have found some awesome deals at Goodwill and 1 garage sale, but going to the local swap meet soon.  Thanks to /r/gamecollecting I found this awesome site that Matt and Scott have been working on.  My 4 favorite things to collect and watch are Power Rangers, TMNT, Pokemon, and Ghostbusters.

@atariboy hah nothing wrong with that.  I will probably do the same thing when I have a boy, but then again I don't really have any shame in what I do now so maybe that won't change much...How is the power rangers laser disc release compared to the dvd releases?  I'm thinking about getting a laser disc player someday is it worth the investment?

Hey everyone, I saw someone on my sites with a sig pointing here and figured I'd stop by to check it out.

I collect mostly Nintendo and Sega, but I have a pretty extensive CIB 2600 collection too. I just recently completed my CIB Gameboy set, and I'm almost done with my Game Gear CIB set too.

I'm also a webmaster, and I run NintendoAge.com and SegeAge.com. I like to look at other collection sites for ideas on how to improve our collection tools. The collection sig is a neat idea.

Ooh!

All extremely fun. Love hidden gems on the Famicom! =D In fact, I have a series on YouTube that features a lot of games ont the Famicom. Check it out.

Been here for a week or two, but totally never posted here.

Anywho, I am Matt, not to be confused with the Matt who maintains this fine website. I live in Texas and have been collecting games with my friend (Byron) for many years. First and foremost I am trying to collect a complete US NES set, though I certainly like EU/Famicom games and all other systems as well. I came over from a site called Retro Collect when I saw link here in Nightowljrm's signature (btw, I appreciate it.) Retro Collect is a good site, but mostly European and with a much smaller emphasis on user submission. I'd been looking for a site where I could track everything I had and even started to attempt taking a picture of everything I owned for personal tracking (view my collection and you'll see how futile this idea was.) I really enjoy being able to contribute to a larger-then-myself database and have enjoyed adding new games and scans immensely. I also like the idea of a growing community as VG collect is fairly new to the scene and I honestly beleive it's submission system will eventually make it the best database on the web.

Well, I'll see you all around.

Hi, everyone, I'm Drew hailing from Oklahoma. I've been hovering in the back for a while and figure it's time to introduce myself. I go by "dstone" on Digital Press/AtariAge/Build Your Own Arcade Controls/Oklahoma Coin-Op Collectors. I had an installation of Open Game Lister running on my server for a while until a PHP upgrade broke it. I don't know much about PHP so I hopped over to Excel spreadsheets. The admin at OC-OC pointed several of us over here and boy, am I glad he did.

I currently collect for just about everything as funds allow (I'm a college student majoring in broadcast production, so sometimes it takes a while to build up the gaming coffers again). I do have to say that MAME machines are like a gateway drug. Next thing you know you're dragging home a dedicated machine. Then two. Then they start breeding in the garage.

You guys are doing fantastic work. It's a pleasure to be a part of the community.

I joined last week after finding the site through the Games Press forums (media site based in the UK). While I don't really collect games, I've got quite a few as I was a spoiled kid and I've spent a fair amount of my own money in the past. My first console was Intellivision using the PlayCable setup. Eventually got a Sega Master System and kept sticking with Sega from there, rarely playing any Nintendo consoles. I inherited a Commodore 64 in the mid to late 80s and played that way too much. Grew up in Connecticut and spent nine years in Arizona but currently live in Michigan.

So that's me.

I collect pretty much anything but my main focus is on the 360. I'm just over 1300 pieces of software total(345 of that being for the 360) and I think around 35 consoles/handhelds.

My user name is from my ebay account/hotmail and I've just always used it so it stays with me. I'm living in Edmonton Alberta Canada but I'm from Vancouver.

Loving the site so far and I hope to be able to contribute more.

Hello there everyone!

I'm Gaz, 37 year old gamer and collector from England!
I came across this site when vgcollect started to follow me on Twitter.  As I reside in England I use
http://www.retrocollect.com/ to document my collection as they have an extensive PAL database, but I do collect retro games from both Japan and North America

It will be interesting to get to know a few people on here and see if there are any differences in the way we go about collecting etc.  For a little insight to my collection and collecting habits you can check out the link which features myself in a collector interview on the retro collect website! http://www.retrocollect.com/Articles/collector-interview-rpg-enthusiast-gaz-backhouse-lostruin.html

I'm on Twitter as @lostruin and I have a YouTube channel (although my video camera is broken, so no videos have gone on for a while), plus I also co-host the "Tune in Game In" podcast, where we talk about gaming and gaming news etc.  I joined from episode 3 and it is a work in progress!  It is on podmatic and itunes!
http://tuneingamein.podomatic.com/playpod/play/2012-01-09T14_12_49-08_00

That's about it for now!

Peace and happy gaming
Gaz!

Hello everyone.  I recently joined and just finished entering my collection.  My main focus is NES games, preferably boxed or CIB, however I collection more or less everything.

This is a fantastic site and I love the tools available to keep track of our collections!
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: scott on March 22, 2012, 10:50:31 am
Welcome lostruin and blipcs76! Thanks!

Lostruin, If there is anything we need to do for the PAL region, just let us know. Since most of our users are from the Americas we have a heavy slant of North American games, but would love to fill out the PAL list as well. So if you notice any consoles missing just give us a shout in the More Missing Consoles thread (http://vgcollect.com/forum/index.php/topic,74.msg653.html#msg653). we'll try our best to add them as fast as possible.

Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: blipcs76 on March 23, 2012, 10:52:11 am
blipcs76, are you going for a complete NES collection?

Unless I get a huge raise or win the lottery, I'll never get a complete NES collection, especially since I focus on boxed or CIB games.  The prices have just gotten too high lately, so I focus on what I can find rather than buying stuff online.  I try to find what I can at pawn shops, thrift stores and garage sales to fill out my collection, but I'll likely never add a Stadium Events, Little Samson or Bubble Bath Babes to my collection unless I find one out in the wild.
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: matt on March 23, 2012, 10:53:20 am
I'm right there with you. I only work on CIB games too but will never spend the money people are asking for online. I'm all about good deals and random finds.
Title: Re: Intro thread

I have a few cib nes games (DK, Legendary wings, maniac mansion, tmnt, super C and my sealed DW1) but otherwise its cart only. I hate Nintendo cardboard boxes. I cant believe they used them all the way up to the Gamecube. I really like the boxes that have the sleeve encased in plastic (the Genesis style) that someone on ebay sells. Id love to have my entire NES collection in them but that would be way too much money on a bit of flash.

As far as the rest of my collection, my PS1 and my Dragon warrior/quest stuff I want 100% complete otherwise its just game.

I hope those don't entail cutting the boxes!  There's a guy that lives relatively near me who's one of the primary sellers of the plastic game cases for NES/SNES games on ebay. I'd love to have them to protect and enhance my collection, but when I think about buying 200 of those plastic cases I think about how many more games I could buy with that cash instead.

Matt, myself and a few others here just use plastic sleeves for protecting our boxes. There is a whole thread on it here: http://vgcollect.com/forum/index.php/topic,51.0.html

They are really reasonably priced as well and usually fit pretty snuggly.

Hi all. I'm Torchickens. I joined VGCollect after I came across the website several months ago and thought that it would be a good idea to keep track of my games. I especially like how this website allows the freedom to submit your own items. I haven't got much of a collection, but I like to discover and read about obscure and under-appreciated games on Nintendo consoles, and a desire to collect certain video games spun off from there.

 Im mainly into collecting whatever is a good deal at the time. But i like the kinda obscure stuff too. The 3DO, Jaguar, TG16 and Neo Geo is what ive been paying attention to lately.

and maybe my ocd will be able to help fill out the database stuff. Since all the games listed in my collection will need all the info for developer, publisher, boxart, etc.    ;)

What's up world!  My name Jason.  I go by Turf out here in the interwebs.  I started out as a NES collector, but it turns out that was a gateway drug.  Now I collect for most consoles up to the Dreamcast.  I just refuse to start collecting for Playstation.  I guess I should, since it's still in that "not collectable" stage. 
Anyway, I love the NES and it is the center of my collecting problem. 
Nice to meet you guys and I'll try to add a little bit to these forums.

I was wondering that myself. As a RPG collector, the PS1 stands out to me as the single greatest console ever made (I know the games can be played on a PS2 and a PS3 giving it a bigger library but the actual games are PS1). Nothing has even come close.
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: turf on April 05, 2012, 04:39:02 pm
I refuse to collect for the Playstation because I was a huge Nintendo fanboy.  I loved the N64 at the time and hated the playstation.  Also, it seems too new, even though it was the same generation as the N64 and the Dreamcast.  I don't know, maybe it's just not for me.

Personally I have never been a fan of the PS2 because in my mind it's what killed tje Dreamcast.
Title: Re: Intro thread

N64 is probably one of the worst systems ever made. :|

And what killed the Dreamcast is a set of some of the most useless controllers ever made.
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: scott on April 05, 2012, 05:41:46 pm
I think the system I got behind the most was the PS2, of course I held off on the system until a price drop until I bought it. Then when I did I eventually ended up with over 65-70 games for it, before I trimmed it down to what I have now.

Funny how I was big into the PS2 and hated the Xbox (53 to 12) and now I'm big into 360 and "meh" over my PS3 (58 to 3)

In all reality the Dreamcast never stood a chance because of Sega's position when it launched.

The SNES and N64 had more to do with killing the console side of Sega than Sony. Sega exited the console market because they did too much too fast followed by too little too late. While Sega pumped tons of money into the 32X and Sega CD (after creating/starting the Bit Wars), Nintendo just kept doing what they did best back then by making really, really good games for the SNES. Sega dicked around and released the Saturn with virtually no solid launch offerings (with the exception of Nights) because they were already hurting and needed to release the first console that round just to stay alive.

The only reason Sony even entered the console market was because they had spent so much money on developing the SNES CD Drive with Nintendo. The SNES CD Drive was supposed to be a joint venture between Nintendo and Sony, but at the last minute Nintendo bounced on the deal because Sony had written some garbage in one of their contracts which entitled them to the rights of every game released for the SNES CD. I could go into the whole game development issues on the Sega CD (moving from carts to CDs was not an easy task), but I'm done ranting. Nintendo and Sega killed Sega, not Sony.

I was a huge Nintendo kid myself so I'm just now getting to the the Sega consoles. I did switch to Sony when I had to make the choice between the N64 and Dreamcast simply because the games on the system appealed to me more. I think the PS2 was one of the greatest systems ever built and they have a library to prove it. I've since moved on to Microsoft because I had a feeling that they would dominate the marketplace this round. I've been really happy with my 360 and, for the most part, the library it has to offer. I do have a PS3 but can count the number of games I've spent a significant amount of time with on one hand. That being said, I do think that the PS3 is a better machine and the UI is MUCH better than the most recent 360 Dashboard.

Wow...that turned into a rambling mess.

Hi!

My name is Paul. I'm a 22 year old living in Boston, Massachusetts and I currently am student at UMASS Boston.

It's hard to name exactly what my favorite games are, but my top list definitely includes A Link to the Past, Toejam & Earl, Street Fighter II Turbo, Bastion, Ocarina of Time, Shenmue... I just realized I can go on an on forever

I particularly collect everything from the NES to the Dreamcast, but I also pick up some more modern games and I may pick up older stuff in the future. When I was younger my parents made me sell my collection, but I recently started collecting again. It's a small collection, but I'm working on it. I love shmups and fighters, and I also play a lot of PC games. I also love going to thrift stores and hunting cheap and sometimes rare finds (like a factory sealed copy of FF7... which I'm looking to sell  ;D) and gaming stores, though the latter is hard because I don't drive.

As stated before, I'm a student at UMASS Boston, I'm a Music major, and I will be going into education in the future.

Oh, now I find this thread  ::)

My name is Mike, from Phoenix. Small time collector for a couple of years, but purchased my first "Collectible" when I was 14 (Super Bomberman 5 - CIB). I mainly collect N64, SNES, Genesis, and NES games and accessories. My strengths are finding virgin N64 controllers and N64 consoles.

I compete in Super Smash Bros 64, Tetris Attack, and a little bit of Dr. Mario.

I just got back from PAX East 2012. It was an incredible time! I spent 90% of the time in the Retro Gaming room. Took home a couple of medals, met some amazing people, saw some great games IRL (DKC Competition, Star Fox Competition), and will be going to every PAX from now on.

Anyways I found this site from the /r/gameswap subreddit. Great site! I can't wait to see how this community evolves.

I don't trade too much, but I have 7 N64 consoles with cables that I spend if there is something I really want.
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: jcalder8 on April 22, 2012, 05:16:51 pm
Welcome to the site Mike. I have heard that PAX is awesome to see but living in another country pretty much means I'll never end up going.

Where do you go to compete?
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: faxmachine on April 22, 2012, 05:36:35 pm
I will fly out to anywhere to compete. I have been all over the country (even Hawaii) to compete in Smash and Tetris Attack. I really love those games. I don't even know how many times I have competed at this point. I saved all my plane ticket stubs, so I could check.

I absolutely LOVE this site! Thank you very much! I have a couple of websites I am working on. One was handed to me to help out (I haven't changed anything since responsibility was handed over) http://www.tetrisattack.org and my own project (which I have seriously neglected) http://www.drmariorx.com. If you have any small tasks I probably could help out here. I need excuses to learn PHP. It would probably be better if it were later, just so you guys know I am not some scumbag.

I might as well throw this out here just to break the ice a little more:

I am on the right. I had to play against my friend and roomate on the 2nd round. It was single elimination so I was sad that one of us would have to go that early in the competition.

Hey everyone - older guy here who has been a gamer forever but recently started collecting. I live in a part of North Carolina where I have found some awesome CL and local garage sale deals and it has kind of taken off from there. I'm originally from NYC.

I do also play modern consoles (Xbox 360, Steam) but my main focus right now is finally finishing KOTOR.

Husband and dad too, so I don't have unlimited discretionary spending... hope to make some use of the trade/sale threads too :)

Welcome teknophyl, a lot of us started out as gamers and many would still consider themselves gamers first. I am mostly a collector because I don't have the time to game like I used to. My wife and son play more in a week than I do.

Hey guys, I am a youngster from Australia (20) and I'm really only collecting for consoles I already have as I see no reason to branch out yet. Even though my collection says all NA formats, right now it's just because it is easier. Eventually I might try and help out the PAL format entries.

I do try and game when I can, not out and out as I used to be a few years ago. Started collecting because after I got my first decently paid job my Xbox 360 collection grew, which was fun in itself; hand picking games that I wanted to play from different genres. Now my focus is my PlayStation Two collection and the Pokemon series. It wasn't until I started logging my collection in here I realised how much of the series I have covered.

Hiya, I'm Phil and I have been looking for a site like this for awhile. It's great thanks. I currently live in the Phoenix Arizona area, (Luke AFB).

I have been collecting for years, albiate very slowly. It's gonna take me awhile to fill in my collection in my profile, but I currently have NES 2, SNES, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, Gamecube, Xbox, PS2, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS, and PSP. I love retro games and have been very interested lately in adding to my collection at a faster rate. I also really enjoy doing projects and have been inspired to try to build my own NES PC. I am also a husband, Father, dog owner, board game geek, sci-fi nerd, and spend way to much time on Reddit.

This place seems great and I hope to contribute to and learn from the community. Thanks

I have been using Backloggery, IGN (before it was remade) and some other gamesites to keep track of my collection, but I've never had one that I find really usefull, informative or just plain easy to navigate with.

That is, untill now! Congrats to all who made this site, its quite wicked and I will be using it to catalog all my games on. Do note that I'm a European (Belgian) gamer, so there will probably be quite some new entries for EU games. :)

Welcome to the site exonerator! It's always great to see younger generations to appreciate older games. Do you have a favorite system to collect for?
I'm a pretty big NES collector, I have about 200 games for it right now. :)

Hello, I figured now is better than any to introduce myself. My name is James. I've been gaming since I was a kid with my Super Nintendo. I've been collecting games a for awhile, but I have gotten more into it in the past 4-5 years. I recently graduated college and now for a PC/MAC gaming headset company. Hopefully I can be of assistance to VG Collect.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. As for the company I work for it is Andrea Electronics. We make predominantly wired headsets but also one Bluetooth earpiece. The latest release we have is our gaming/music line known as the SuperBeam series. We've taken our patents collected over the years working with the military and finally applied it to a headset. We've completely eliminated the need for a boom microphone, and we've applied our filters to eliminate background audio and solely focus on your voice. Pretty cool technology and I was brought on board to help the headset enter the gaming market. It has been pretty tough so far, but I feel like we are making positive steps forward slowly.

But back to the site. I've worked on the Intellivision section of the site and that should be just about done. Next I think I'll try to do the Atari 2600, but I'm not quite sure.

Sweet; I just have one headset right now, but I'm kinda picky about them because most of them give me headaches (how they sit on my head, etc.).

Interesting how you started with SNES and have collections of items before that generation.  I don't really collect anything older than my Gamecube - guess I'm just not interested in the older stuff.

Thanks for the shoutout Matt!

As for my collecting habits, I collect any and all systems. I even collect foreign games. My prized possession, maybe, is a sealed Dendy system. Sadly, the smallest collection I have of the major systems is my SNES collection. I think I only have about 20 games for it.

Hello Everyone!  My name is Justin, and I live in central Illinois.  I started collecting semi seriously a couple years ago while in College, and with the advent of a full time job and a new local store specializing in used electronics, my collection has really started to take off.  Said store also has some really affable employees (though some of them are certainly duds) and, as I've built up a rapport with them, will call me when they receive games they think I might be interested in, or a large amount of CIB stuff.  Got an awesome looking Panzer Dragoon Saga yesterday that way.  Last count I had 660 (I haven't finished adding all of them on the site yet) not including guides.

Hello, I am puracz, recently I overrunned the Support section.  :)

I am living in the Czech Republic and I do have a huge collection of Steam games. Lately I've played way too much of the online ones such as DOD:S, CS:S and CS:GO, so my other "buddies" were alone for a bit.

I also have a few PS1, Gameboy Advance, PSP and PS3 games laying here and there but I'll probably get rid of my PSP collection soon.

Currently I moved back into PS2 completely and I am re-building it's games collection. It's actually much cheaper than the PS3 or PC ones and finding the unique titles makes me feel really warm inside.

Nothing can beat the tangible collections even though they fill up so much space! I'll be getting the new library especially for games soon.

Thanks a lot for the welcome, guys! Fox I would add you but recently I sold my gaming computer so the current machine I use is one pretty old capable of just internet browsing. I'll definately add you when I get back a bit to the PC gaming again but currently my whole budget is going into PS2 involved things so it would take some time.

This makes me thinking that the PC collection has to wait unsubmitted for a while due to not being able to access my online library, but I am sure that you'll see hundreds more of games from me soon. When I gather the free time I'll be editing the ones from my collection and I'll also add the missing NA ones and platinum versions.

Send me your custom Steam URL. If your profile is public, then I can see what games you own, and I can add them. I tried searching for you but I couldn't find you. :P

I had to deal with people trying to scam my account or being annoying by asking for free stuff so sadly (for the current need) my profile is private. Also the profiles are quite inaccurate to the actual libraries because they don't detect most of DLCs and pre-orders. I also own many rare games which were removed from the Steam Store and US only available games gifted to me from some kind US folks.

Anyway asking you to add such a huge list just because of me would be so selfish and you would lose a lot of time doing so. At the moment I am still fully on my PS2, so I will add the things once I gain some time to get back into PC gaming a bit. I do really appreciate your effort to help though, it means a lot to me.

I'm in the US region, almost no games are region locked for me (except for stuff from Japan), and I've added a bunch of games that have been removed already.

And it's no problem, really. So okay. :P
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: puracz on October 03, 2012, 11:48:40 am
Here in Europe it's quite hard to get some games due to not having access to the US and JP Steam Stores and the prices are a bit higher because of euro but luckily here in Czech we don't get that many restrictions or edited games such as in Germany where they are strict about everything. But being in AU would be even worse because there are much higher prices (the new games cost around 60 - 90 $ mostly) and also they are getting even more restrictions (no EU/US Steam Store exclusive titles) plus some edits but I am not sure if more or less than in Germany.

That's some new knowledge for me.

Likely we have just one exclusive device because until 1993 we were part of Czechoslovakia.

Though we do have some games like Samorost and Mafia series or Machinarium, but these are a bit later.

Hwody. 

I've been looking for something to catalog my collection for a while, so I was excited to com across vgcollect.  I'm about half way through adding my collection.  When I discovered ebay in 1999 I went on a purchasing spree, that is where most of my hardware came from.  Sense then I usually just buy games I want to play.  My boys (10 and 8 ) like to hit the pawn shops with me hunting for new games. I tend to prefer cartage based system, for me there is more nostalgia in the cartridges than in CDs and digital downloads (although I have plenty of those too). My favorite systems are probably 5200, NES, Genesis, N64 (those are the ones I  had when I was younger, so of course I like those ones). I also have a pretty sweet Mame cabinet (if I do say so myself) I built about 8 years ago. I love to see the kids (and their dads) reaction when they see it.

Look at me, I'm rambling...

Oh ya, I've always wanted an authentic cocktail cab, and had my eyes on a Centipede one to do a restoration project on. But missed out on it. Instead, I've been working on this Centipede bartop off/on since late 2009. But haven't finished it (it's currently a shell with no paint). I have most of the parts for it, but hit a snag with finding a screen (I need something like an 8" screen), and redoing the graphics from scratch.

Have you posted any of your builds over at the BYOAC forums? I posted both the SHMUP cab (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,95293.0.html) and the Centipede Bartop's (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,97890.0.html) build logs there and the community over there is really enthusiastic and helpful. I received a lot of guidance and tips from folks over there.

Hi everybody,

Joined recently because I really loved the "collection" system the site has, while I was here I decided to stop by the forums for some discussion. I absolutely love the marketplace though I wish it was more active. I've been playing vidya since I was a wee little lad and started collecting just a few years ago (before I was that kid who couldn't stop shoving off all his least-played games to the nearest used video game store). Other than loving video games, I am also a huge fan of music, arguably more than video games, so that's why I decided to link my last.fm in my signature to maybe show off some of my taste. I am usually very sarcastic and make jokes in most of my posts, which tends to offend people for some reason, I guess it catches them off-guard and people think I'm serious. Oh well, you guys already hate me but I'm here to stay! (for now)

Hi. I'm Toybatsu. I used to go by GreasyLazor until my brother stole that alias to play that really shitty game Minecraft.
I like anime and video games. Upondoom is one of my best friends and he calls me a weeb all of the time because I suppose I kind of do obsess over Japanese games. 

My favorite game genres are RPG's and Survival Horror. I'm currently playing Fate/Extra, Phantasy Star Online 2 and Persona 4 (second playthrough). I also have been giving Siren a shot every once in a while but it isn't really grasping my interest.

Hi. I'm Toybatsu. I used to go by GreasyLazor until my brother stole that alias to play that really shitty game Minecraft.
I like anime and video games. Upondoom is one of my best friends and he calls me a weeb all of the time because I suppose I kind of do obsess over Japanese games. 

My favorite game genres are RPG's and Survival Horror. I'm currently playing Fate/Extra, Phantasy Star Online 2 and Persona 4 (second playthrough). I also have been giving Siren a shot every once in a while but it isn't really grasping my interest.

Welcome!  How is PSO2 so far?  I dug the first one and the portable versions were ok.  Persona 4 is awesome, too - I should try to replay that before Golden comes out (with the new character/love interest).

PSO2 is really good. The fact that it's free to play and that the cash shop players have no advantage is a very good thing too. The boss battles can get pretty intense and the combat is always fast paced. Honestly, it's one of the best MMO's I've ever played. It reminds me a lot of Monster Hunter.

I've been looking forward to it since it was announced... But I guess I'll have to wait until next year to get it properly (can't read Japanese).

Hi everybody,

Joined recently because I really loved the "collection" system the site has, while I was here I decided to stop by the forums for some discussion. I absolutely love the marketplace though I wish it was more active. I've been playing vidya since I was a wee little lad and started collecting just a few years ago (before I was that kid who couldn't stop shoving off all his least-played games to the nearest used video game store). Other than loving video games, I am also a huge fan of music, arguably more than video games, so that's why I decided to link my last.fm in my signature to maybe show off some of my taste. I am usually very sarcastic and make jokes in most of my posts, which tends to offend people for some reason, I guess it catches them off-guard and people think I'm serious. Oh well, you guys already hate me but I'm here to stay! (for now)

Shit, I love me some sarcasm, too!

See...

Now this was a decent (and unoffensive:) post.

Might have worked-out a little better for ya' if you'd made your nice & informative "Intro post", oh...I dunno...maybe BEFORE saying that a game (that others here likely enjoy & bought) is a piece-of-shit...not even worth $2.00 - And/Or
BEFORE your post calling one of our regular & long-time members here a "faggot"...

Just some food for thought...maybe it will help you w/ making "1st impressions" in the future  ;)

Wow! Thank you for the post, kind sir. This has really opened my eyes as a person and as a poster on an online forum. Did you know if I never ever came to this forum I wouldn't have learned this valuable lesson you have given me? I've thought a lot about myself after reading this post earlier today, and I honestly think I am a better man because of it. I wanted people to like me so badly I just tried to be as edgy as I could to get attention! Maybe they would think I'm cool for not caring about the rules... whatever I previously thought is the past now, as I will try to be the best, most respectful person I can be! Thank god for this post, because I've decided I'm going to be nice from now on, no need to be rude in any situation! I'm going to nail all my first impressions in the future to make sure people like me right off the bat! I just wanna thank you one last time. You've been a great help to me.  :)

Hi, I'm thedisappearer.  I'm in the US Army, stationed in Germany (which really makes collecting difficult) and currently in Afghanistan (which *really* makes collecting difficult).  I collect a little of everything, but mostly Nintendo.  I suppose at some point I'll sell the other systems/games off to finance harder-to-find, more expensive games, but I'm not quite at that point yet so...  I have probably just under a thousand games (my full list is back in Germany) but not too many rares and only ~50 CIBs. 

After being politely reminded by my wife that I promised not to collect via eBay while in Germany, I wandered around the internet looking for a place to read up on games and collecting, as if some breaking news might appear about a new SMB game for the NEs or something, and ended up hear.  Been mostly lurking/feeling the place out, but seems entertaining, especially if I don't question people's sexuality due to game preferences.

Heyo,

i am a northern Canadian collector. i honestly dont have enough time to catalog my games onto the site yet... so i only added my small collections so far, (genesis, Wii, 64, PS) i am honestly scared when i decide to put my pc games on the site, and then my peripherals. i have boxes and boxes of addons and such for all my systems.... :(

i am currently working on my NES collection, it currently sits around 230 games, 40 or so boxed, and only 4 Factory Sealed Games... :( my PC game collection is always growing, at last count it was at 1700 unique games, and 2100 total games about.... :)

my future wife was kind enough to let me have the entire basement for my "man cave" other than the laundry room... :) so when i get more work done on it i will probally be posting pics as i am very proud of it. i currently am typing this on a 128" projection screen... :) i have my computer, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Xbox, Wii, Dreamcast, PS, PS2, PS3, and genesis all hooked to it.

i currently use the downstairs bedroom to rebuild computers, so there are about 12 cases in there right now.... understair storage is used for the fiancee's cocacola stuff,

then the downstairs rec-room is split into my gaming station and a wet bar i built that is not quite done yet. :)
 
slowly but surely i am adding more and more of my games and such... but i got here a little late in the game and well, i like to play games more than catalog them.... :)

I'm new to collecting (and to this site). It's brought new life to my PS2 which was previously collecting dust in my basement until I embarked on this quest to collect every RPG ever made.

The first games I ever played were Super Mario World and Donkey Kong. SNES and PC reigned supreme with Wolfenstein 3D being the best thing ever. I loved FPS in the 90s so I was hooked on Doom and Quake as well--those were the only FPS I've ever played and probably ever will play. Then PS1 and N64 came on the scene, so FFVII and Mario 64 became my latest and greatest. When the PS2 arrived I hadn't been gaming for awhile and wasn't interested until FFX appeared and piqued my curiosity. That game along with FFX-2 were my favorites in high school; I haven't played a FF game since then. I just started gaming again recently with Dragon Age: Origins and Oblivion being my current addiction.

Anyway, happy to have found vgcollect--feel free to message me with suggestions for good RPGs or obscure PC games!  :)

Thanks! And yea--I think the term RPG can become a bit convoluted at times (Skyrim is an RPG?). Maybe I'm just use to more traditional RPGs with the turn-based battles and whatnot. My plan isn't to exclude any games though--I want to include all RPGs as well as games from other genres that have RPG elements. Hello overwhelming! :)

I guess I've been narrowly defining the RPG genre based on the fundamentals of JRPGs. My first foray into the genre was a JRPG so I tend to measure all RPGs against that. The lack of turn-based battle confuses me! :o So is JRPG a subgenre of RPG or is it a totally separate genre in and of itself?

Yes the jrpg is definitely a subset of rpgs. If you noticed my list, I didnt list any of the hack and slash rpg (diablo, baldur's gate, champions of norrath, etc) nor did I mention any of the tactical rpgs (ff tactics, ogre battle, ultima exodus, etc) plus the beginner jrpgs (final fantasy mystic quest, ghost lion, etc) and there is another kind of rpg that is sort of adventure rpg (Ys, Valkyrie profile, Elder scrolls). There is another type that I basically call pen&paper rpg (Swords and serpents, the AD&D games, etc). They are all differently played types. I love the hack and slack type cause most of them are multi player and thats what me and my buddy do when we get together. I do not like the tactical rpgs as they are so slow and boring for me. Beginner jrpgs are really short and linear. The battles are all predictable and they help you through the game. They dont hold much replay value imo. Adventure rpgs have their moments. While I consider Ys one of my favorite lines of games of all time, I really did not enjoy Valkyrie profile. Same thing with the pen&paper. I actually am one of the few people that probably really enjoyed Swords and Serpents. Hated the AD&D games though. Its just a personal preference. I will 95% of the time however prefer the jrpg to any other of the subsets. Its what I have played for so long and what I revert back to everytime. If you are a rpg fan in general I do suggest that you give all the subsets a try. It could help you decide which you want to focus on.

Hello everyone!

My name is Tyler and I hail from Southeast Michigan. I have been a gamer all of my life. Even though I was born in '88, I had the privilege of growing up on all of the major consoles (sorry Atari). I started off playing the NES at a very young age, and then eventually moved the SNES, Genesis, and every console after that. I have also been a big PC gamer since the days of Doom, Wolfenstein, Duke Nukem 3D, Blood, etc. I am newer to the game collecting scene, but I have kept most of my acquisitions from the various console eras of my life. I am also a very big horror movie fan and I collect a lot of horror movie memorabilia.

WHY HELLO THERE EVERYBODY NEW FRESH MEAT
Been lurking for awhile now, so i decided to register.
I'm not really good at introducing myself, but well, i'm 22, i'm moving to live in thailand soon.
I'm a resident evil fan, also love MGS and RPGs.
My collection is kinda weak, sold a lot of good rare game back then when i was a kid, those cost a lot of money now, sadly.
There's a few titles, mostly jpn import game, i couldn't find in the database so i might submit them later when i've free time.

Gonna upload a few pictures of my collection first, if there's an album, i guess.

Well that's about it, i guess, english not being my mother tongue i might make a few mistakes here and there. Js.

Hi, I'm new here so I thought I'd pop in here to introduce myself. I stumbled across this site well trying to find a program that would help me inventory my video game collection, (that projects going to take me awhile) and decided to stay as this looks like a nice friendly place to chat about video games. Which I'm looking forward to, as I don't know anyone in real life that really plays video games let alone collect them. Anyway I collect a lot of different systems and the games and accessories for them. I'm mostly a rpg player, My favorite series being Zelda, Dragon Quest, and Final Fantasy, :)

The systems I collect for, so far,are:
Atari 2600
NES
SNES
N64
Gamecube
Wii
GB & GB color
GBA
DS
3DS
PS1
PS2
Gamegear

I'm slowly adding other systems as I find good deals on them.

Welcome Burningdoom, Man I really need to get more Europeans on this site :p

LMAO -

What, I think, we really need, are some more members from N.J.

I say this, because it was so funny when I would talk to rescue-workers/helpers from other states that were here to help us clean-up after Sandy hit...they were all

"S.H.O.C.K.E.D." -

BY "How nice, normal, and friendly we Jerseyans were"...they said that they were thinking that everyone in N.J. would be "Jersey-Shore-Stupid"...or "kill 'em for looking at us the wrong way"...from watching too much of the Sopranos  :o

"Jersey-Shore-Stupid"

Are there really these kind of people where you are? After seeing all the commercials, it makes your area look like a bunch of idiots have all spawned there.

Wow, friendly site. Thanks for the welcomes!

Comic books
Which one? I guess spiderman for sure.
Welcome here.

Too many. I've been reading them for years upon years. I pretty much only read DC & Marvel comics with a few licensed titles here or there. But I read a ton of them! Let's see here: Green Lantern, JSA, JLA, Superman, Avengers, Spider-Man, Venom, Marvel Cosmic titles (Quasar, Nova, Warlock, Guardians of the Galaxy, etc.), Star Trek, and plenty of others but those are the top ones for me.

King of the Hill is 1 of my favs, but So. Park, Futurama, Regular Show, Family guy, and American Dad are kinda' hit or miss w/ me...either really funny or really bad & annoying :P

Hey guys. Robert from Sweden here. I stumbled upon this site by someone linking to their collection on a forum and thought it looked interesting. I've been keeping an excel sheet of my collection for some time now, but this site seems really cool and the potential for a collection list with tons of interesting data is huge. So I'll be migrating my collection list to this site soon.

I've been playing games since I was old enough to hold a controller, and have been collecting games for a while now mostly for Nintendo platforms, although I don't have a ton of games yet. I basically only collect games that I find interesting. I don't collect to have, for example, a complete PAL NES collection. I only aim to have the great games on my shelves. :D So games like Stadium Events or other ultra rare-but-boring games aren't really of interest to me. I also usually only buy one game at a time instead of lots. I've been focusing on the NES/FC for some time now, but recently started getting more serious about Game Boy games as well. But anything Nintendo is interesting to me.

I'm a little confused about one thing here though. I've been adding some items, mostly PAL NES games, to the database (hopefully correctly...) and I see that for some games there are multiple entries. For example, Excitebike on the NES has one entry for the 3 screw version and one for the 5 screw version. I think it's fine to have different entries for different regions and remakes and such, but these multiple entries for the same region is a bit confusing I think. Wouldn't it be better to just have a general release page and then if the user wants he could add a note saying if it's the 5 screw version or not? Or maybe somehow combine the two pages into one and let the user specify which release he has there by checkboxing it. I have no idea how the database works and if that's even possible though. So what are the thoughts around this?

Either way I think I'll find myself right at home here and look forward to see the site evolve and get better. :)

Regards,
Robert

Firstly welcome to the site Robert!

Thanks for your hard work already with the EU releases.

In terms of the 3 vs 5 screws or any of the minor differences, I personally don't find it a big deal which version I have but some people are very passionate about have the 3 or 5 and tracking which ones they still need of each. There has been talk about linking similar entries but I don't know how far that has gotten.

Welcome again!
Jon
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: synt4x on January 07, 2013, 11:51:25 pm

Hmm yes I didn't think of the fact that people might own both the 5 screw version and the 3 screw one. That's true. That does warrant multiple release pages.

Hi! I'm Sean or LiberNullMal, found this website looking for a way to keep up with my collection and what I'm looking for. I live in Houston, Texas and lived here for most of my life though 3 years in New York due to servicing the country by joining the Army. I've loved Video Games since I can remember and started out with Atari as my first console System. I've started collecting console systems and Video Games around 14 when I found out my dad had pawned my systems and games because I chose my mom over him in the divorce. I've collected some of the things I've lost but some things are rare or expensive to actually get a hold of..  I'm currently a IT Manager for a Valve Company though I'm also a Jack of all trades and tend to take up the slack a lot of times. Some of the things I've done is created websites, created Databases built computers, repair computers. My favorite thing and something i would like to do is Game Design or Game Programming though my only problem is that I've never been able to pick up the programming language like I would like to have. I would also like to thank Matt for making this great website and hope to talk to many of you later on.

well figured i may as well introduce myself.

My name is Brannon and i live in the mid west. mainly right around the ST.LOUIS area.

 Im 29 years old and I have been playing video games all my life. Even when getting a cd- rom drive installed in your computer was a big deal. (xmas gift one year) I can still remember sitting with my father trying to decide what to delete off the hard drive JUST to make room for the game DOOM.
 Recently i quit playing competitive paintball and decided to collect retro games. Seems when i pick a hobby i get really into it. That being said. i started REALLY collecting retro games only about 4 or 5  months ago. Already have over 240 sega genesis games most in box. Only around 45 NES games and just a few games from other consoles.

I mainly ONLY collect sega GENESIS games. Keeps me from spending WAY too much money by collecting other consoles and games.
Plus its just my console of choice.

Im really glad i found this forum, seems very well laid out. plus the people and info on this site seem very helpful.

so i guess thats it.

any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks
Brannon

Genesis has a massive library so thats not a bad choice. Sword of Vermillion and the Phantasy star games were among some of my favorites when I was younger. And check out http://segaage.com/index.cfm. Its a smaller community than Nintendo Age but most of the guys there are DIE HARD Sega fans. Can probably score some deals and learn a lot about the system.

I did have a genesis growing up.  I also remember most of my friends having a genesis so thats what we played most of the time.
 

I even remember RENTING a system from the local video rental.  But i believe we tried the SNES.

Hey Brannon, I'm new myself but welcome to the site... Did you get the Sega Channel as well? it is truly unfortunate that they didn't keep it around or someone make another version like it for the sega system.. funny this guy wanted $50.00 for it at the flea market... almost bought it but thought better since sega channel really doesn't exist.

nah thats the one of the things i dont have. and honestly unless if falls into my lap for stupid cheap im not going to buy it. The only reason i got a sega cd and 32x attachments were because someone was selling it for stupid cheap.

and i would not pay 50.00 for it. like you said its pretty useless.

It would be a neat thing to have as a display but that's about it.

From what I understand, XBand still works though! And it goes for a lot less than the sega channel as well...

still working on getting the 32x attachements but not found one that i'm willing to pay the price for. I did find a Sega Master System pretty cheap but it was broken...

still working on getting the 32x attachements but not found one that i'm willing to pay the price for. I did find a Sega Master System pretty cheap but it was broken...

XBand still around that is interesting I would like to see that :)

I haven't tried it. But there are videos of people still connecting with it. The saturn netlink was a modified xband. So, if people still connect saturns (I believe they do) xband should wok as well.

Hi everybody!
I am Glefferson from Brazil.  ;D
Well, I don’t know exactly what to say to you, so I am going to speak how I started my collection and what videogame means to me.
About 13 years that I collect old videogames. It all started when a friend of mine wanted to pass me back offering a his very old console in exchange to one pair of new SNES joypads and one cartridge that I had. This console was a Master System and it came with “Sonic The Hedgehog” in its memory. It was the first time that I knew Sonic. I fell in love for the first sight! Right after, at the same time, another friend showed me his Master System, that was an older model (Master System II by Tectoy, that is the same model by American Master System I, with the difference that everybody knows). And he had some cartridges and a pistol… And then I bought the console and the games for a very small price! Some time later, I found out a blockbuster in another neighborhood of my town that there were dozens of Master System games, that they rented in Master System time. And they were selling the cartridges for a price of a bottle of Coke. My other friend didn’t believe in my luck… He thought that I would never find games for that console…

Since then, I have been looking for cartridges and consoles in second hand shops and old things in my town and region. Luckily here we always find things like this in these shops, some shops even dark and far away, that make us feel afraid… But my first Atari console was a little different. I crossed my town on foot to go to another friend’s house. His uncle had an Atari 2600 “Darth Vader” abandoned on his garage floor, it was crashed and mistreated. I bought it and I fixed and restored it! I have it until today! Along the years, I kept on buying other old videogames consoles in these shops that I mentioned and some games too. But the most part of games and consoles I got from my friends that wanted to give a little help to my collection. Although I found my last console at a garbage site… About 3 years ago I knew a guy that also collect old videogames, but he buys brand new and complete items and buys them from sellers all around the world. And that’s when my collection begins to be a more serious thing, because I bought a lot of things from him and we participated of the several auctions over the internet.

Well, among my consoles, my favorite ones are the Master System, Mega Drive (Genesis for you), and the legendary Dreamcast. This last console touched me when I received it by mail. It was an 11 year wait…  ;D

I’m very happy to be participating of this community! I hope I can make many friends here!

I only ask that you have a little of patience with me. It’s been only four months since I started learning English…  ;)

Welcome and dont worry about your English ... most of the people here can probably read it just fine, I know I could.

Glad to see another SMS fan. Its the system I grew up on and some of the most awesome games ever made are master system exclusives. It seemed to have been a pretty popular system in Brazil too so you got the better end than we did here. 2 of the games I own I purchased from Brazil even.

I feel kinda bad that I keep rambling about region stuff, so I figure a quick "hi!" is in probably in order.

My name's Erik, from Portland, Oregon. Ko1ru referred me here, since we had both been trying to find an alternative to sites like Listal, GameFAQs, etc, and after about an hour or mucking around, I started moving all my lists over here.

I started gaming somewhere around... 1985'ish or so, but probably wasn't a confirmed addict until I got the NES and SNES a couple years later. That eventually developed into a PC gaming addiction, and it's spiralled over the years with a PS1, PS2, and eventually a GameCube, Wii, PSP, Vita, PS3, Xbox 360, Dreamcast, DS, and... yeah. Too much, yet never enough! My apartment is practically wall-to-wall with games and movies these days, slowed only by a relatively small budget, and me being picky about the condition of used games. I also made the really stupid decision to sell the bulk of stuff I had as a kid when I was a teenager, so now I'm faced with replacing most of it. Strangely, I *did* keep my copy of Super Metroid, which still looks practically brand new, so at least there's that :)

Most of my collection is focused on Japanese games, especially JRPGs, bullet hell shooters, and 2D fighters, and I've slowly been moving into the sometimes frighteningly expensive world of imports, but I try to keep my tastes pretty open. You'll probably see a lot of frantic activity during weekdays, since I work in customer service, which basically means I spend most my day talking to jerks and browsing the web. It's open to debate whether the abuse is worth the slacker opportunities the job affords me.

Enough rambling for now. I should probably um... work or... something.

Thanks for the welcome. I'll be the first to admit I might come across as a little too opinionated sometimes, but for what it's worth, I'm really really liking the site so far. Far more organized and accurate than most, and the community seems to consist of a lot of *gasp* actual hardcore gamers who buy games. My collection is tiny compared to a lot of you, and that's... actually kind of refreshing!

Most other tracking sites are lacking in international games. Hopefully this database can get as complete as Shmax, which I use to track my Transformers collection.

Hover your mouse over Profile at the top of the screen, click on Forum Profile and then you will see a place at the bottom to copy the web code. I hope that makes sense :)

Hello all,

Just joined the site. Been gaming since the mid-1990's and haven't been a collector in the most traditional sense. However i'm more of the type that keeps the games I buy and over the years have built up a decent sized collection of games. Now that I'm working full time, I can finally expand a little bit and collect a bit more.

If there's any one franchise I keep up with the most it would be the Command & Conquer franchise....to the point where I have 2 copies of the vast majority of the catalogue (Including original copies of Command & Conquer 95). Great idea for a site!

Hi everybody, I'm hellrider1988 from Berlin, Germany.

Not a hardcore collector either, but since I was able to save for a new PC my gaming habits from the 90s have kind of resurfaced. I also still own a SNES, N64 and a good old Game Boy, though time for these babies is scarce. ;)

I'm really glad I found this site, have been looking for something like vgcollect for quite a while. I also like to archive my other collections (books, CDs, DVDs etc.) on similar sites, so this really comes in handy. :)

As to be more welcoming to other Matts of the world, I will now officially answer to O.M, Matt the 1st, Fearless Leader and Fearful Leader. All other answers will be deemed as unofficial.

There ya' have it, folks!

It's been made officially official by the (rest of the) official's official now  8)

...Carry on...

Crap! Is there someone else with the darko name here? I apologize, I would have gone a different route had I known. Usually never see it. I had some friends that used to call me Dennie Darko after we'd seen Donnie Darko. It just kind of stuck.

I am sorry though, to the other darko. I have no issue changing if, if I can figure out how.

Yep, there's darko, and then there's you.

There's no reason for you to change your username. If that's how your friends call you then it's fine. Your names are different enough that we won't be confused, so no worries.

Welcome to the site denniedarko!

What systems do you collect for?

I actually don't collect as heavily as I did in the past. I got rid of my PSone, (with the exception of a handful of games), PS2, Dreamcast, and most my PS3 and 360 collections recently. I made a resolution recently to only play games on Nintendo consoles, so I am currently collecting for my Wii, Wii U, 3DS, and looking for DS and Gamecube games.

Don't change your name, either...now, the other "Darko" will be "just, plain Darko" :P

Hello everyone,

My name is Fredrik (from Sweden) and I just took the decision to try and find another place to list my collection, some years after IGN's alternative went south, and that's how I found this place.

Since I really don't want to misbehave (in accordance to the terms and conditions); If I have some questions about the game database and its entries, where should I ask these questions?

For example: There is one entry of a EU release of Tales Of Vesperia, but it has (french box art) added to the title. My swedish edition has the very same box art and the same goes for the UK release which makes me want to have the database entry changed to NOT say (french box art). If the person who made this entry want to specify that the backside text of their edition is in French, I imagine it is better to add that information in details. As far as I can tell, the cover for ALL European releases are the same!

I'm very aware of the risk that I've missed something obvious and if so I apologize, but if one doesn't ask...!

Anyway, VERY nice to be here, I really hope I can contribute to this. The first three titles from my own collection I searched for didn't appear, so hopefully I can at least be a little helpful!

With Friendly Greetings: Fredrik Strömberg
Title: Re: Intro thread

Howdy and welcome.

What we're doing now is adding a country to the game title when needed. Many early European titles are multi-language so we tend to keep one entry per game, but if regional variants exist, then we add them. Tales of Vesperia has several regional releases - I checked MobyGames and they have three different cover art variations for this: Spain (with Spanish text on box), Austria / Germany (German text on box + USK Rating), and Finland / Portugal / Sweden / United Kingdom (English text on box, Finland, Portugal, Sweden flags on back). I was unable to find a shot of the French version.

The Spain and Fin/Por/Swe/UK releases seem to have the same front cover, but the back of the box and EAN code are different. So they both have to have different entries.

I've added the version of the game with English box text (http://vgcollect.com/item/41149) for you. Let us know if you need more help.

Hello to the both of you!

Many thanks for the reply! Okay, so you want all differences on the covers, and not just the artwork, gotcha!

I've been slowly starting to add games to my collection but many are missing from your database. Could you give me any tips on what is more important to add, information wise, when I want to contribute?

Also, as far as pictures go, I guess its scans or bust? Photographs won't cut it? I have an old scanner somewhere I think, but not sure if it works at all/on win8.

edit: Actually let me add another question as well: If I don't have ALL the information available (barcode number, maybe publisher, date of release, pictures of boxart etc.), should I then refrain from adding a game to the database?

A game entry can be barebones: The minimum information you need is the correct platform / region, game name, and regional / packaging variant information (if any). A year of release and developer / publisher info is also handy. If you have a complete game, you should also add the EAN (product barcode) so it helps when people want to add the game to their own collection. The year and EAN data can help us track down game variants, like with Vesperia. If your game doesn't have a game rating, or it has a rating we don't currently support, don't change the rating.

Scans are preferred but photos are okay. If you can find scans online, then use them, if they match your product exactly, since some sites make up their own covers or use promotional artwork. Don't use watermarked pictures (you know, stuff with site or store logos.) If you can't get any pictures, again, don't worry.

And don't worry if you don't enter all info when adding a game. Any missing information can be added later on. Many collectors have missing info in their game entries, and we add stuff when we can do so. :)

Well...lets see if I can make this endeavor work without incident. I am in the process of rebuilding my old library and currently the holder of roughly 1500 game titles. I'm also setup for all console regions and thus aspire to add those region exclusive titles as well. There are some good ones out there that never made it to US shores unfortunately. In light of my collection being so large (and my knack for finding obscure game info), hope to contribute to this growing database that might prove to be extremely useful for me in future game hunting adventures.

Thanx disgaeniac. I like for this to be the last stop in trying out new databases. Many previous failed attempts to establish a database without issues. I first started out with a spreadsheet document, but then exceeded its virtual memory buffer and it took too long to open. Eventually the entries would start disappearing by themselves. So I moved on to a action figure program I messed with to suit my needs and onward to GameCollector. Again the same issue came up. Have yet to see if Sisimizi does the same. Since I have so much data between the two programs, you can be assured that if I spot something that needs fixed. I'll see what I have to add and correct the entry  :)

Thank you all for the very warm welcome!

I'm quite a busy man, sadly, (who isn't) so there will likely be times I'm absent some days here and there. I think I've come to the conclusion that I'll start adding my collection with minimum amount of information just to get the games up there (and some momentum going) and then I can go back and fill out extra information (unless someone beats me to it) later on.

I would estimate I have somewhere near 1000 complete first prints (which are the only ones I count) and I suspect a whole damn lot of them are dedicated Swedish releases so I'm prepared to list quite a few games from scratch. I'm sure it'll be fun once I get going. : )

Anyway, I'll try figuring out everything myself but chances are you'll get a few more questions from me before everything is said and done!

Howdy Folks,

So after I almost broke the guidelines within 5 minutes of joining the site (thanks foxhack), I figured I better say hello.

I'm Tony from Chicago, IL and I'm about to be a dad in just a handful of weeks.  I don't know what would possess me to try to list my collection (Less than 500 of NES / SNES / GEN / PSX|3 / GC|WII / PC Games combined) at a time like this - maybe it's just that I want to appreciate it some before I don't get to spend any time with it for a few years.   Really though, I think I am just trying to get a handle on it so that I will spend more time playing and less time looking/remembering in the future.

I describe myself as a "player's collector" - What I have I play / use / read.  I do enjoy the hunt so I gather a bunch of stuff up, but If I don't want to use it I get rid of it.

I got here via r/gamecollecting, where I like to admire the "serious" collectors collections =p

Tony / thirtylives

I'm assuming this is the "official" intro thread. My apologies if not.

I'm Thomas. I'm not sure how much I'll actually post around here. I just really appreciated the gaming database. I've already cataloged what amounts to my entire collection. There's about 3 or so games that weren't listed and however many PC games not listed. I'm more than happy to help out with the database as much as I can.

As you can see, from my collection, I'm mainly a retro gamer. I appreciate the new but I'm more about getting/playing the games I missed out on from my childhood.

I have a few YouTube playlists of videos I've made about my collection and I plan to make more.

My Game Collection playlist link:

My Game Reviews playlist link:

I also Livestream whenever I can here: http://livestre.am/45JAo Currently, my girlfriend and I are playing through and trying to 100% Super Mario World.

A YouTube archive of my Livestream is here:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXed3CbDfgM&feature=share&list=PLKtghYbCv4wmUgpcEZjCuTLXw6kPdL8m9

And, yes, my YouTube videos are unlisted rather than public. That's just how I am.

So, with that, I hope to enjoy my time with this community. Thank you.

When I first banned him, I didn't include his IP, so he kept sneaking in. Once I realized my mistake, he was gone.

Hi, My real name is David, have 27 years old and live in Brazil, my english is extremely poor to talk but i can comprehend you perfectly, like my japanese that isn't perfect but I try to increment my vocabulary day after day.

My favorite Systems in order is Dreamcast, Nintendo 64 and NES. I still don't have a NES today but I ever had one collection before.

I play videogames since 1990 and like too much movies, books, write and this is all about me. haha

Hello everyone

I've only been collecting games seriously for about a year now, but it's become one of my passions in life. My collection is fairly small to many people here, but it is constantly growing. It would be somewhat bigger if the majority of my NES, SNES, and N64 games weren't stolen a while back. Slowly rebuilding, though.

Outside of video games, I write music for a living.

Hello guys,

I'm Steeve from Riviere-du-Loup a small city in the estern part of Quebec, Canada. I collect videogames for about 15 years but I've sold most of my collections last year. I've decided to continue to collect games series. Currently I collect Mortal Kombat, Tekken, Soul Calibur/Edge, and finally my favorite Metal Gear.

There's my current collections

VERY late response, sorry lol!

I write primarily concert orchestral and band music, but I've done some video game projects (nothing that ever went anywhere, but they were fun) and done some free-to-use tracks for game making communities. You can check some of those out here if you want: https://soundcloud.com/bobby-richeson/sets/rpg-maker-music-pack   Those were all written very quickly in the span of about a month, but they turned out pretty well considering.

I'm also working on an instrumental rock project of sorts, but with a very downsized orchestra. It's a combination of modern orchestral and pop music (though I use the term pop very broadly here and mostly it means hard rock and metal, but a wide range of genres are covered). It'll take a while to get everyone to learn their parts and get it recorded since I'm funding it myself.

Hello all,

New member here. I've been attempting to catalog my collection for the past couple days which originally began on the Shelves android app. I wasn't entirely pleased with it but I wanted something with a bar code scanner via my phone to speed things up and I liked the virtual shelf concept.

Long story short, after spending two full days (jobless atm) getting about 600 items into the Shelves app and finishing, I happened to come across VGCollect and at first I was super depressed at the thought of doing this all over again. But having an actual database that I can contribute too is a great motivator for me. So of course I spent the past 10 hours adding my stuff and submitting box art, editing listing info and adding bar codes as I went along. I'm only about 100 items in so far  :'( I feel sorry for whoever is on the other end approving all my stuff haha.

I was also eager to fill the database with like 10 years of PSM Magazine issues but it turns out I must have thrown out that box some time ago. I still have issue 1 and the PS2 reveal issue which I submitted. I'm still mad at myself though.

Anyway, I feel like a psycho doing all this work  :o But I'm hoping you'll continue to improve on the site and that this could grow into a really popular great site.

P.S. Can anyone tell me how to do the VGC collection signature? I couldn't find info anywhere.

Ah okay great. Yea I wasn't sure on those sorts of things if the dash should be there or not on those codes. I have since found the Style Guide so that should help.

Hey everyone, first post here. I was working on my own little personal site just for friends and made a video game section and then i thought to myself i wonder if theres a similar public type of page and then found this page out. im 32 been gaming since atari and i use to perform at concerts for 8 years! and then i got tinnitus (hearing problem) and now i game all day, alllllll day.

I tried adding a few games to the ps3 browse list but i dont think it worked i may have to resize the images. right now i currently have 2 ps3s and over 250 games for it. half are digital though.

other things im pretty proud of is my small nes collection i have 60 games boxed in near mint condition just a little wear and tear on the boxes. when places started selling off there nes collections at video rental places i tried buying up as much as i could but being a teen i didnt have much money. i really wish i could of bought more because the prices have sky rocketed :o

other misc stuff i have is a turbo graphix 16 with 4 games. my mom bought it for me for christmas after it was discontinued and we couldnt find any games for it at the time =( i remember one day at toys r us they had a shopping cart of tg16 games on clearence real cheap like 2 bucks a piece! she said we would go back but by then they were all gone =\ every once in a while i power up keith courage and play it :P

i had a snes and n64 but my ex psycho gf borrowed it with my zelda games. i left it with her :o

also have a ps2 and sega genesis but i dont think either works. my sister sold all my sega games for a dollar a piece because she thought they were hers grrrrrrrrr >:(

im trying to cut down collecting so much and buy a house. but for now im having a fun time platinuming games  ;D

currently i have 51 platinum trophys =)

2 of my all time favorite games are desert storm 1 & 2 for ps2/xbox and battlefield bad company 1 for ps3. i put in 56 days worth of hours into battlefield. and desert storm me and my friend played consistently every weekend for 2 years lol.

welp thats my intro. gotta build up my game list. im making image scans for my own site so if i see games not listed i will try to upload artwork here as well. i know deadliest catch and dead island riptide special edition are 2 i was trying to add

This makes absolute sense to me. Between the multitude of amazing games on the PS1 and the exclusives and compilations on the PS2, you could get nearly any RPG made on that system. Its my total favorite playable system cause of it. Im actually still looking for one game for it myself that I used to see everywhere so I just wasted time getting it and now I never see it in the wild at all : Ys ark of Napishtim.

Whelp, might as well introduce myself.

Hi, my name is Edwin, but you can just call me Nos or Nosmiric. I've been a lover of games since I was really little and have always wanted to collect vintage and new games, but I've never had the wallet for it seeing as I was a teenager without a job. Now that I'm 20 and with an actual bank account I make it my duty to scout out for great deals and really really neat stuff.

Aside from video game collecting, I'm just a normal dude who plays games, watches anime, and spends too much time on the internet. I have taken up some voice acting and plan to be a graphic designer eventually.

I love final fantasy 7 so I love collect more from that game than any other, i have figures, guides, magazines and of course the games. But also I love collect rpg games, specifically from 90 era (ps1, n64 until xbox and ps2). My main goal is collect all xbox and ps2 games because this era was the most time i spent into videogames.

Do you have a favorite system to collect for?

I'd have to go with PS2 since there's plenty more titles I want for that console.

Howdy, just dropping by here.  I check these boards sometimes, so I figured I might as well post some, too.

I used to be really into gaming until around 2004 or so, then dropped the hobby (got burned out, I suppose?), but eventually came back into the hobby around a year ago.  Luckily I never sold a *single* game from when I was a kid, so I was fortunate enough to have a decent collection from around that point.  Just been playing catch-up with a lot of the titles I missed since that period, especially PS2 games.  I have a 360 that I play sometimes, but I feel compelled to play the last generation before I jump into the current (bad timing, with the PS4/One coming so soon), oh well.

Plus, I'm cheap.  Can't afford to put down 60 bucks so often.

Glad to be here.

Greetings, all.

I've never actually registered for a place like this before. But I figured I might as well eventually. A buddy of mine (foxhack) mentioned it on his FB, and I figured it couldn't hurt. I figure I'd like to get a decent list together before I head off to Japan. Nice to meet all of you! :D

Hi I'm Andy but everyone online knows me as flatapex, I am mainly a master system and mega drive/genesis collector

I am 32 years old and from Manchester.....thats right I am British  ;D

I was introduced here by soera, we know eachother on sega8bit, the other sites I am on are predominantly UK ones.

I have about 130 games in total, the vast majority are for the ms/genesis.

Forgive me if I mention mega drive instead of genesis or mention prices in £'s, and if you want any help with pal region stuff for those systems, let me know as I know a fair bit

i've noticed most sites seem to have one nationality as a majority and thats it, I moderate elsewhere and its an international site

in reality every system's collector needs to know people from worldwide

Okay.


What's folks, 7th here.

Most people know me from my Youtube channels, The7thLevl (which is now an archive) and 7thLeveLReviews. I'm also on Twitter @The7thlevel.

I'm a console gaming collector. My collection is not as big as it once was. It used to stretch all the way back to the Fairchild Channel F but due to several boxes of stuff being mistakenly sold in a yard sale whilst I was doing fieldwork on the other side of the state, I lost a good chunk of my collection in 2004 and didn't start buying the stuff back until 2009. I got to looking through what I have on the shelf last night (a good chunk of my collection is in a Uhaul storage unit) and decided I needed to find a good place where I could catalog everything I had on display so I could keep better track, and show it off to people who are constantly asking me for videos updating my collection.

Right now my biggest issue is I want to do retro reviews of TG16 games, but I don't have a PVR that'll handle RF, and the prices for TurboPros add-ons and TurboDuos are ridiculous.

Sssgoin' on everyone? Been itching to find a new home for my collection cataloging. Mostly due to the lack of reliability in terms of your competition. You probably know who I'm talking about. The video game database site that's almost always down or severely gimped. Can't even use that place anymore it's gotten so bad.

Have been gaming since the early 90s and collecting obsessively a good 4 or 5 years. I'm not the game-room type, nor one to collect trinkets or memorabilia. I mostly focus on just games, and just games that honestly appeal to me. I've got most of the hardware I'll ever want, aside from some of the recent. Basically all of the mainstream units and few of the more obscure ranging from 2nd gen to 8th gen, and I collect games for virtually all of them, I have no biases and enjoy them all. Lately I've been on a modern games collecting kick. I've recently acquired a 3DS, Vita, and Wii U.

I have a game buying addiction, sometimes I buy more than I have time to play. I'm fan of rpgs, platformers, action & adventure, and hack n' slash among many genres. You can catch me playing about anything console wise aside from sports, mmo, or shovelware.

Hello everyone!

I've been gaming since 1992 when I got a Sega Genesis for my 5th birthday, but really became addicted when I got an N64 on XMAS 96. Like most on here, I sold or traded most of my childhood games for newer games or other stuff over the years, and began collecting again in 2008. Aside from having to sell my NTSC Saturn collection back in 2010 to fund a summer semester of school, I have held onto my games and am currently at about 1200 games (have not put all my games in as of the time of this post).

I collect current gen games all the way back to NES, however my favorite games to collect for are 5th (PS1, N64, Saturn) and 6th gen (PS2, Dreamcast, XBOX, Gamecube) games. I mostly hunt all my games in the wild at thrift stores, flea markets, garage sales and places like that, although I do break down and get stuff on Ebay sometimes. I also trade with various other collectors in my area to get harder to find stuff. I have, however, recently slowed down with my collecting, partially out of choice, but also because most of the stuff I want but don't have is harder to find. Instead I am focusing more on playing all the games in my current collection rather than buying more new ones.

A little extra: My favorite games are Shenmue and Shenmue II, my favorite console is the Dreamcast followed by the PS2, and my most wanted game at the time of posting this is The Misadventures of Tron Bonne for the PS1.

Looking forward to getting to know all of you and being apart of a vibrant online gaming community! :D

PS. Going to try and get pics of my game room today (or tomorrow).

Well maybe I should introduce myself, joined like a week or so ago. Found the link on trueachievements.com on some status update and decided I'd check it out, liked the site from start :D. About myself I'm 24 years old, lives in Sweden, alone atm. Been playing video games since I can remember. Mostly played on NES and consoles coming after that.  I like all kind of video games, the only kind of games I have a hard time playing is Sports and big RPG games like FF, DQ and the like, though I recently told myself I'd complete FF13,13-2 & Tales of Vesperia before the end of this year. Nowadays I mostly play on Xbox 360 or PC (steam) and when I feel like it I plug in any of the old consoles.
 
My collection isn't that big, but I do keep the games I buy, I just can't sell any. I have about 50-60 360 games that I have and a lot of them not completed. I'm also a big Pokémon fan, whenever I get a console with Pokémon games I try to get every game released on it. Have all games for N64 (excluding hey you pikachu as it wasn't released in EU) & Wii. GBA, GB & DS I'm working on slowly and I've yet to get a 3DS as I don't feel the hurry to get one now (nintendo will redesign it more times anyway). I'm also not a perfect collector as I don't mind not having boxes, manuals and the like, if I just have the game it's enough for me.

Well that's me, ask away if there's anything you wonder :)

WELCOME to VGCollect VEILOR!

Just curious, since you say that you don't really like RPG's - and then say that you really like Pokemon & that it's one of your favorites...do you not consider Pokemon games as RPG's, or do you kind of just classify Pokemon as in a class/genre all its own?

Seeing this topic in my "unread posts" and not in "replies to your posts" made me realise that I have never introduced myself  :o

So... Hi all! I've been collecting for 4 years, but more seriously for around 2 years. I live in Quebec (Canada) and study computer science. I only collect on Nintendo, Sony and Sega consoles, because first I hate Microsoft  :P and second because there aren't enough exclusives that appeal to me on any xbox system to justify me buying one. My favourite system is the Nintendo DS, but it's kinda in a tie with the 3DS now. I love handheld gaming a lot. I sometimes play computer games, but I don't count them in my collection because it's not my focus at all.


I'm a year late, but they say it's better late than never, right?  :P

Thanks! Yes, I consider Pokémon another type of RPG game than what Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest and the like are. They are in my opinion bigger, longer and requires much more time to complete, also much more complex as they have equipment, stat points and all those stuff. With Pokémon you don't really have to pay attention to stats unless you do a lot of VS battles, which I don't.

I was looking for a place to catalog my collection, and I discovered this delightful place! Now to figure out how you link to your collections in your sig like most of you do....

I've recently turned 30, I started playing NES at around 4-5 years old, and while I only buy the occasional video game these days (mostly RPGs or strategy) I still like to keep up with things. My collection largely consists of games I bought new, including NES & SNES games. I have sold off a few things I knew I'd never use again, but besides that, I tend to hold onto things.

I've been known on Dragon's Den for my ridiculous collection of Dragon Quest stuff (plushies and slimes particularly, dishes and CDs as well) which three years in Japan certainly helped along. I've still got friends sending me things.  ::) It was the first RPG I ever played, and even my father jokes that between the RPGs and the Nintendo Powers, it really helped our early reading skills!

While I'm never the most active forum member, it's lovely to meet you all!

Hi guys!
My name is Diego, I'm from Barcelona and i'm 28 years old. I've been playing video games since i can remember. First platform i've ever played was a ZX Spectrum, followed by PC, Commodore Amiga, SNES, Gameboy, PS1, Dreamcast, PS2, Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3.
Yesterday i was using google to find a way to catalog my collection, so i ended here. Cool website & forum and of course a very nice and clean design.
Excuse me if my english is not the best one out there, blame the spanish education system if you want! Actually my english vocabulary came from reading texts in videogames :-)
So that's me guys, now i'm focus on collecting for my SNES which is my favorite platform along with Dreamcast and PS1.
My top 5 favorite games of all times are Zelda: A Link to the past, Chrono Trigger, Shenmue and FFVII.
Take care and i'm looking forward to know some of you!
Greetings from Barcelona!

I fear for our American brethren even more. Minimum wage might go up, and even though that's a good thing on paper, a lot of companies are going to inflate prices on things.
Title: Re: Intro thread

It's actually a bad thing on paper as well. Minimum wage goes up, prices of good goes up to compensate for the mandatory wage increase.

Thought I would finally post in this thread.

I just joined a little bit ago after watching this site for a long time. I have way too much stuff to catalog currently, but I'm slowly adding stuff and marking that I own it. Maybe in the next few years I'll catch up.

Name is Stephen (pronounced like Steven) and I live in Arizona. I'm 34.

I have been collecting since the Atari 2600 and my newest console is the Xbox One (I have almost everything in-between).

Also I'm relieved to see that people understand simple economics from the posts above mine.

Well, that's my point. The part where I said it was good on paper is because people immediately think "Yay, more money!" and "the 99% is winning", but they forget that the companies are thinking the exact same thing. Except the 1% are winning. A $3 fast food item might cost $1 - $1.50 more within the next 2 years because a lot of people who work at fast food eat there as well, and fast food restaurants control a huge part of American employment, as well as daily revenue.

Anyways, back on topic: Welcome Stephen, even though you've received a warm welcome in the weeks past. :p Can't wait to see your full collection logged.

I agree with both points. Everyone has been very nice and welcomed me! Also every time minimum wage is raised the companies don't just say, "Oh Well - we are just going to pay more to our employees and make less money this year." Just as you said Exonerator - they pass that cost down to the customers. This happens across the whole market. Grocery stores start charging more, fast food charges more, any retail store. Even companies you wouldn't think about have minimum wage employees like shipping companies, warehousing companies, video game companies. All of these companies are going to pass that cost back to the consumers.

Hey folks.  Stumbled across this place browsing to see if there was a better mobile app to use on my phone as the only one I have is NES Hunter Pro, which is only Nintendo related and only up to Gamecube, so this place seemed way better for keep track of my overall collection.  I'm a relatively new collector though I've done it off and on over the years, but now I've really begun trying to collect on the cheap when I can, primarily Nintendo related, though I'm a pretty varied gamer.  My main collection right now is trying to get all the Zelda titles, of which I have a reasonable chunk so far, but a ways to go.  Also trying to collect alot of Nintendo 64 games, of which I have around 30 with nearly zero boxes for them, though I am lucky to still have my original Zelda N64 games in the boxes.

Looking forward to hanging out here.  I've also in the past few months started into Perler Bead art, usually retro gaming related, so maybe I can start a thread for that around here, of which you can find my deviantart at http://kamikazekeeg.deviantart.com/ .

Now to spend forever cataloging my games lol

hello! my name is austin and i've been a lifelong video game enthusiast. started with super nintendo and nintendo 64 growing up. got a ps1 and then a 2. unfortunately i struggled with a drug addiction for 3-4 years and ended up selling my entire collection of games from my childhood for drugs. it really hurts to think about, especially now that snes and n64 games are so inflated at the moment. but it has given me a fresh start to start collecting from scratch.

i decided to collect for NES, Gameboy and Sega Genesis and its been going great.titles aren't to expensive and these three platforms are like uncharted territory for me so its been a blast exploring all these "new" games

im 24 going on 25 and i plan on keeping this hobby to the grave, i love it so. i've had a hard time transitioning from new generations of consoles though so i don't have any plans to buy anything past the 5th gen anytime soon. i've only been collecting for about a year now, but im quite proud of what i've accumulated so far.  once i have all that i want for the nes and genesis i think ill move on to the playstation. but i guess we'll see what happens.

i mainly spend my time on 4chan, but i've really been looking for a good old fashion forum to spend some time on and meet some new e-friends and i think this might be just the place. its great knowing you all.

Welcome to the site Austin - it's great to have you here  ;D

Also, thanks so much for your honest & candid introduction...trust me brother, you're not alone  ;)

In fact, you've made me a bit jealous by getting your shit together at such a young age!

See, in my "Other Life" - I also struggled on & off w/ my own drug addiction(s)...for a long, hard, miserable, lonely, alienated & isolated time (this "Other Life" ended for me a little over 10 years ago).

However, instead of getting it together in my early 20's like you did (which, in & of itself is admirable and no mean feat)...my 'War with Myself' took me to 50+ rehabs & detoxes, a 13 month "therapeutic community", dozens of outpatient programs, 10 years on parole and/or probation, 5 years in jail & prisons in 10 different counties spread over 3 different states, took my driver's license, killed a best friend of mine (watched him OD & die right in front of me - helpless to do anything about it...he was about your age when he died, etc, etc, etc.

I said all of that to say this:

After & in spite of all of that...I eventually went back & got my GED, worked full time, went to college & got my CADC (Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor) -and- wound up working in a rehab; helping others that were just like I used to be - it was very gratifying.

Shit, selling *MY* gaming collection was easy to forgive myself for...it was selling everyone else's that *really* pissed everyone off   :o

So...yeah, congratulations on giving up that 'High Cost of Low Living' sooner & younger than I did   8)

Hi!

I'm Ian!  I live in Pierce County WA.

I play guitar poorly though if that counts (used to play cello, but currently don't have one), I make silly voices usually when nobody else is around, and I want to eventually make my own games.
I have a custom google map of locations I'd like to visit in my life which I add to all the time.  It's mostly all old ruins.


I listen to all sorts of music, but spend more time listening to podcasts currently.

Anywho I think this is long enough, so HI!
Glad to be here =)

thank you so much for such a warm welcome, and im so glad everything worked out for you in the end. gives me hope for some of my friends...dope is absolutely a living nightmare. i was in a constant state of superficial happiness, just lying to myself the entire time that everything was okay. you just keep reaching new lows. i had to get out, i just wasn't doing anything with my life and i felt completely miserable. it made me grow up fast, i feel like i've been through the ringer, i can only imagine the pain you've had to go through.

with that said, retro games have been a means to cope and recover and i love it.

Haii!

Just thought I'd drop a little message here to say hi. I've been lurking for a few weeks already and started putting my collection on here. It's pretty neat and the community seems nice! I've been looking for a forum like this for a while and I'm glad to be part of this community (where it's not only people bragging about how their collection's worth 10 millions haha).

If you guys are wondering, I've been seriously collecting for about a year now. I've been gaming since I was a kid and kept all my games (which I'm really happy about now!). What really started me into collecting seriously was my job at a video game store. I started buying more and more games as some rares came in and we were selling them for cheap, so I bought them. I eventually bought a large amount of games when the boss decided to put all Xbox, GameCube and PlayStation 2 games for $0.99. (Yeah, EVERYTHING for 99 cents) Radiata Stories for 99 cents? HELL YEAH. One of my coworker got Skies of Arcadia Legends for 99 cents aswell. I was soooo jealous haha.
So yeah, I'm collecting pretty much everything, if it's a good deal, I'll take it. I rarely buy new games and when I do, I'm getting them for cheap when they have a rebate or a promotion. I don't buy new games for $60.

At the moment, I've got games for these systems :
 - NES
 - SNES
 - Nintendo 64
 - GameCube
 - Wii

 - GameBoy
 - GameBoy Color
 - GameBoy Advance
 - Nintendo DS
 - Nintendo 3DS

 - PlayStation
 - PlayStation 2
 - PlayStation 3
 - PSP
 - PS Vita

 - Xbox
 - Xbox 360

 - Sega Game Gear
 - Sega Genesis


So yeah, that's about it I guess. If you guys got any questions, feel free to ask!

Don't be scared off by the thread fazerco linked, by the way :P I also started my collection thanks to my work in a video games store (I could trade all my greatest hits/player's choice for black labels, that was awesome :P ). And I have to say you've got some taste in consoles!

Hi there;

My name is Oliver - when I'm not slaving away at work, spending time with my wonderful wife of nearly two years, or at church - one can find me in front of my video games.

I don't care for the status quo - in fact, it's something I ignore completely. Thats' why, in a city where pickup trucks are ridiculously popular, I drive a 2009 Smart ForTwo. I watch NASCAR, WWE, Pro Wrestling, and Super Sentai on TV. My dream girl (after my wife) is the girl who plays Amy on Big Bang Theory. I'm an energy drink addict.

Thats me in a nutshell. I'm on Xbox Life - if one is interested in chatting or whatever, feel free to hit me up.

Take care and keep gaming!

Hi everyone. I've been a gamer since 1996, when I received a Game Boy Pocket for my 7th birthday. I've always been a "Nintendo kid", but I do have some love for the PlayStation. Gaming has been good to me over the years, so I will continue to enjoy what this industry has allowed me to do: enjoy the best form of entertainment.

That's all I'm going to say. I'm not very good at introducing myself, so I apologize for keeping this short.

For the most part I created this to keep track of all the games that we have that I have actually played. So my collection only looks poor because of that, his collection is actually my collection as well. Whether he wants to admit that or not.  :)
I honestly don't know what my favorite system is. I think I have to say a PS2. It's the first system I personally ever owned. Well I guess I will just leave it at that for now!
Don't worry guys, I'm showing her how awesome the Super Nintendo is!

PS2 does what Nintendoesn't!  ;)
hahaha It doesn't surprise me you're a PS2 fan. Being a fan of JRPGs, it makes sense. But man do I love me some SNES RPGs.


Once I am done with Ni No Kuni I might actually take a stab at my first SNES RPG.

Which NES RPG might that be?!

Well I was thinking of either playing Earthbound or Super Mario RPG.
Both would please Bob. I am working my way to FFVI. I beat FFIV in April and haven't played FFV yet.

Don't forget Secret of Mana! the great thing about that is that you guys could play it together too. The only SNES RPG I know of that has a multiplayer option.

That's a good suggestion! I recently played through that game a couple months ago, and it was a lot more brutal than I remembered. But playing multiplayer might make it easier!

Once I am done with Ni No Kuni I might actually take a stab at my first SNES RPG.

First off, hi ... I am the SOERA that has been mentioned all over. No need to fear me and actually hero worship is not only permitted but accepted as norm in here.

Second, I hate to say it but if you are going to follow Ni no Kuni with anything, you will be disappointed. Everyone knows how I feel about the game so no need to say anymore on that. :)

If you are going to play some SNES RPGs, I would suggest FF VI, Chrono Trigger, Breath of fire and SMB RPG (and on a smaller level, Tecmo secret of the stars). FF Mystic quest is too basic, FF IV is good but doesnt quite reach VI levels, Earthbound was not appealing to me gameplay wise at all. Breath of fire II is good but the original is the best. Ys III is a horrible example of the series. The Ultima games dont hold a candle to Ultima IV. Ogre battle is a tactical RPG and not my style. I also could not get into the action RPG style of the Lufia/Mana/Gaia games. Not much else to mention.
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: soera on June 23, 2014, 11:24:47 pm
I also noticed you mention the PS2. Definitely one of the greatest systems ever. With the ability to play PS1 and PS2 RPGs all on one system, you can fill your time with nothing else and be occupied for months on end. Just dont over look the hack and slash games like Baldur's gate and Champions of Norrath series. Awesome awesome games to play co-op and it already sounds like you have a partner to do that with!

Soera is being very moddest  ;)  It's clear he forgot to mention his wonderful love for the Nintendo 64 and Sega Dreamcast.  He has always been highly supportive of those two systems especially for multi-player 8)
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: MJMaranan on June 24, 2014, 12:29:39 am
Definitely agree with soera on most of his recommendations, although I actually enjoy tactical RPGs.  Time-suck though they are.

Also, Secret Of Mana is at least easier compared to Secret Of Evermore.  Multi-player or not, you'll eventually have 2 assisting characters that can do more than just attack enemies, although you won't have a treasure sniffer like your dog companion.

Anyway, welcome to VGCollect!

We don't currently own Breath of Fire sadly. Those games are amazing. Maybe I'll bump those up on priority so she can play them :D

I did enjoy what little I played of the Lufia games though. That was back in my emulating days in high school. I played through Gaia, again, not too long ago, I don't think it interested her.

3&4 are also available as PSN downloads - well, I *know* 4 is, I'm pretty sure 3 is as well.  I've never played the first two, but 3&4 are both awesome games.

And of course, I could rattle off killer PS2 RPGs all day...Dragon Quest VIII, Suikoden V, SMT Nocturne, Persona 3/4, Dark Cloud 2, FFX/X-2, Wild Arms 3, Shadow Hearts series....man, that was such a great system.   ;D

Hi Soera!
I am thinking I might just play FFV so then I can play FFVI since I am trying to play them in order so I can get to FFX HD (I <3 that game and haven't played HD version yet)
I guess I really just have to take a look at what Bob and I have as well to figure out what to play. He is my biggest influence and he loved Earthbound which is why it was on my list.
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: maximo310 on July 01, 2014, 10:32:47 pm
FFV is pretty-time consuming depending how long you want to develop your jobs, but I'd recommend a playthrough of the game. Not the best story(depending what version you play, the story can be really boring and flat), but the gameplay and music makes up for that.

Hello guys,

New dude here, i just found out about this page like a couple of weeks ago and fall in love right away. I used to manage my collections first in IGN and then with the "Shelves" application in my ipod that for some reason crashed and loose all the data ¬¬. So this is a new attempt to manage my collections.

Please be aware that it is my intention to add more items to the overall list. Like downloadable versions of some retail/classic games. If that is ok with you. Please let me know. Also i would like to ask if it's ok to add to the list some DLC?

Cheers

Hello, I'm TheKosmicKollector! I recently started collecting once I finally got some space and I found a bunch of old PS2 games from when I was younger. Since I'm probably one of the youngest here and I've only recently started collecting, my collection's one of the smaller ones. But regardless, I love gaming and my collection and I like to collect a bit of everything (Whatever I can find on my pretty tight budget really). I've got a long way to go until I have a really awesome collection like a lot of you guys do, and there are a whole bunch of systems I really want to get but just haven't found yet for cheap (i.e NES, SNES, Saturn etc) :)

I just realized I jumped into the thread about best RPGs without posting here, so I'm going to correct that now.

While I haven't thought of myself as a collector until recently, I've always bought, played, and kept any video games I liked.  I mostly play and collect RPGs and platformers, although I like adventure and action games a lot too.  My goal in collecting right now is to buy and play all of the best games for all of the consoles I already own which includes all Nintendo home consoles from N64 and up and all versions of the Game Boy and DS as well as every Playstation home console.  I've been focusing on Wii and DS lately since those games are pretty cheap to buy right now.  I look forward to talking to everyone here and hopefully finding some awesome new games to buy too!

Welcome to the newer members/posters  ;D

You all might not know it yet -but- you've all stumbled into a pretty awesome site & community (*even Soera*...on his better daze)  ;)

Some quick thougts/notes:

- "Large" collections are relative (they all pale in comparison to the Flea's)  :o

- Quality > Quantity (I've built/shaped my collection over the years), and wouldn't trade it for many collections w/ 5x the amount of items; to each their own!

- If you're wondering/uncertain about something...don't hesitate to ask for help.

and - check out the link below to avoid confusion while confusing yourselves even more:)

I pretty much enjoy whatever games aren't broken glitchy messes (a-la Ride To Hell). I tend to find myself veering more towards the  hack n' slash, fighting, horror and sandbox genres, although there really isn't any genres I have much of a dislike for, although I'm not too keen on Sports games, but other than that I really enjoy whatever comes my way! (Also I've been growingly interested in racing games recently). As for the PSN thing, I'll be sure to add you whenever I decide to get off my lazy ass and download the PSN update :P May name on there's danny-21_, so that's who that is if you get a request!

Figured I should introduce myself as well since I've started posting recently. I'm Billy, 29, from Illinois. I've been playing games as long as I can remember, starting with NES when I was 3-4 in 1988/9. Since high school, I've started actually collecting games, although there have been a handfull of purges over the years in order to acquire a little cash (and I regret every one of them -_-). Currently, Xbox 360 games make up the largest console in my collection (150ish out of 400 items), but am looking forward to getting back the oldies that I either sold or have never had the joy of playing.

It's nice to meet everyone and I look forward to getting to know the community here.

Hello peoples! I'm Elijah. I'm 20 and am addicted to da gamez. I've collected games for a while, since i was maybe 15. I recently started to get some direction in my collection by focusing on the PS1 and PS2 systems. My goal now is to amass the entirety of the first two Sony system's catalogs. This site seems great for keeping track of what I got, because I traffic in mainly disc-only games as of late. I already have over 500 items logged in, and I'm not even close to being done! Did not know I had that many games. Looks like a cool community so I just wanted to introduce meself while it was on my mind.

Sorry for the ramble, see you on da forum.

Hello everyone^^ I've stumbled across this site a few day ago and I think it's time to introduce myself. I'm Sina, 25 years old and I'm from Germany (so sorry for any mistakes with the language). I've been playing since the age of 5 and I still do it very passionately. I've never been a big collector, because of not having much space and money but since me and my husband have moved to our new house and having more cash to spend, I've started collecting games recently.

My favourite genres are RPGs, rhythm games, platformers and visual novels. Since I'm serously trying to learn japanese ( and having experience with playing japanese RPGs, though not understanding a word^^), those are the games I want to collect mainly.

My collection is still small, but it will grow steady, because I'm having a lot of fun. And I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun on this site, too ;)

I've never been a big collector, because of not having much space and money but since me and my husband have moved to our new house and having more cash to spend, I've started collecting games recently.

My favourite genres are RPGs, rhythm games, platformers and visual novels. Since I'm serously trying to learn japanese ( and having experience with playing japanese RPGs, though not understanding a word^^), those are the games I want to collect mainly.

My collection is still small, but it will grow steady, because I'm having a lot of fun. And I'm sure I'll have a lot of fun on this site, too ;)

Welcome!  :D I hope you will enjoy it here as much as we do.

I'm also learning Japanese, and am starting to import a few Japanese games! If you want to chat about Japanese games or culture or anything, feel free to PM me! I still have much to learn, and I always love to talk about everything around Japan :)

Ahoy VCG! I’m prox - Liechtenstein-born - living, working (designing and developing games and stuff), rocking, drinking and collecting in Zürich (Switzerland).

I used to collect everything for every game console. But due to the limited space in my appartement, I recently sold a lot of the random games that I've never played or never would have played. The focus lays now on the (CIB, "good and playable" ;)) SNES games - THE console of my childhood before I completely switched to PC gaming in the mid 90s (damn you id Software).

Since switzerland is a multilingual place, surrounded by countries like Germany, France and Italy and where Spain and Netherlands is basically around the corner -
we got all sorts of different language version from all around the PAL region. For that, a lot, if not most, of the games in my collection aren’t in the VGC database. But that’s ok, I probably will submitting new entries for quite a while then ::)

I was always looking for a good looking platform (and most importantly with a nice community ;)) to keep track of my collection. Beside that, posting in the forum is a good way to practice some english xD (corrections are appreciated)

Welcome to VGC!  ;D

Thanks.

How many languages do you know?

Only german (and the local dialects) and english. In europe you get along with english, most of the time. In SNES times many of the games had english texts. This is where we've learned our first english words xD

Oh yeah...beware of the poster directly above your Intro. post  :o

The almighty "soera"? I've read about him, urban legends... or not.

And you got it right about the Soera.  He is a legend, or was a legend or maybe a myth?????  I'm still trying to figure that one out.  ;)

Just found this thread and thought I would intro myself. I'm Groo ( John ), I'm a video editor for TV ( company does advertising, sports programs and a few music videos), musician ( guitarist ) and gamer. I've been slowly (re)growing my collection as time and money allow. I started a YT channel last year (L1GamingChannel) where I record some stuff. It's not monetized ( except for a couple of old videos just so I could do custom thumbnails). I do it just for fun and want to use it to keep track of what games I have completed. I'm not looking to be PewDiePie or anything. I got a great face for radio but not the voice.

I was looking for a video game data base site and VGCollect was recommended to me by Zenimus, so here I am!

Welcome to the site Groo!

THANKS! Just got back from "rhymes with LameShop". I stopped by after going to the bank to see if they had any spare PSP cases. They said "No", (probably a lie) so I just bought a couple of their used 89¢ PSP games that come with no manuals or cover art. Oh well.

It's hard to get too upset when you can pick up a game for less than a buck :)

Hello everyone,
              My name is Chris. Or you can just call me Critter (nickname since I was young my grand mom could not pronounce Christopher it came out Crittopher  everyone dropped the opher and started calling me Critter). I have been searching for a collection database/community/place to remember all the games I have/want for a long time now. I finally stumbled on this site... I have to say for the little bit of time I have used this site, it's really great. People are nice and most of all everyone generally loves gaming as much as I do.  ;D I have been gaming since I was about 4 or 5 years old.. My favorite console at that time was the NES. Nowadays I am definitly a playstation player. But I do like to play retro consoles. I do like xbox 360 just cant stand that damn controller. If anyone is interested my psn name is Critter7405. I will try my best to answer and post as much as I can to the forums.
              Besides gaming I went to college for computers... I repair, custom build and diagnose pcs. I can also fix PS3 YLOD and XBOX 360 RROD. I have done a few of xbox and ps3 repairs already and they are still running great today.  :P
              I wouldn't be a DAD if didn't say that my two kids and wife are getting more involved in gaming. My son has been next to me from the time he was able to put his head up watching me play. Now he is playing games like Super Mario Galaxy and many others which he is actually beating. My daughter is 5 and she is getting really into the DS and just starting out on the Wii. My wife is always looking for the deals from Facebook, eBay and Craig's list. Also just an open ear to anyone talking about gaming, so we can increase the collection. My wife does play the Wii but I have been trying to convince her to play the PS3. It will happen one day I am sure.
              Sorry it took a while to introduce myself. I wanted to get a feel for the community and input as much as my collection I could as fast as possible.
              Although at the moment I am not doing to much gaming I do keep up with it. The last game I played was uncharted 1 and 2.. I pretty much will play everything and anything.

      I would also like to say Thank You to those that put up with all my edits as I was going through inputting my collection.
Big thanks to FOX for putting up with me.  :P
Thanks again and hopefully you will see me post more.

What's going on guys?

I am Matt, but also go by Brit Console Gamer.

I was born in England but live in Ireland with my wife. I am currently waiting for a large majority of my collection to arrive from Australia (where we lived for the last 2 years), but have already started making additions to it.

I do have a YouTube channel which can be found here: www.youtube.com/user/BritConsoleGamer

I have an Instagram account, under the name @britconsolegamer and I use this to show pickups and other cool stuff I find on my travels

I also have an obligatory FaceBook account, which can be found at: www.facebook.com/BritConsoleGamer

And finally Twitter which I rarely use but if you fancy following look up @britconsolegame

Both PSN and XBox gamertags are BCGMatt so add me if you want

As of the post, the games in this collection are ones that I have in the house at the moment. I can add to this as the rest arrives.

I am looking forward to speaking to some of you in the forums, and don't hesitate to shout if you want to ask some questions.

Until next time, have fun and take it easy!  :)

I was going to say "He was born", but this was put so much better.

He did do this one thing with a live chicken, a weed eater, and a large Slurpie. It wasn't pretty.

I'm just a 14 years old autistic kid from Québec who really enjoy Nintendo stuff. Since I am too young, I can't have a job and get some beautiful plastic bills to buy some cartridges (I must be 16 to do that).
Just to know, what are the best ways for starting a little collection of retro games? I would really like to know.

Welcome to VGCollect!  I started collecting around your age as well a few years ago and I did a couple of things that helped start my collection:

1. Ask friends and family if they have any old games in the attic they are not using.
---This is how I got a large chunck of my Atari collection as I bought it from an uncle.
2. Stop into the thrift shops and pawn stores every once in a while.
---Most of them are picked over any more, but you can still find good deals at some of them.
3. If you do buy online try to get your games in lots.
---I don't do this anymore as I like to only collect games I will actually play now, but this can help you get commons when you start collecting.
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: mightymeowmixcat on August 25, 2014, 09:14:46 pm
Thank you for these tips!

My uncle recently gave me a NES Action Pack (without the box) with games like SMB / Duck Hunt and RBI Baseball 2 (the cartridge barely works) plus a SNES (I already own that) which had a copy of SMW and a turbo controller.
About thrift shops, some people were selling some overpriced stuff and even counterfeit cartridges (Kirby : Red Diamond). At least I could find some good deal (three games for 20$, seems like a good price).
And for online purchases, I don't do that. If I stand correct, eBay is a good place to start but my parents don't trust that website in particular (they are a bit paranoiak about online stores).
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: doafan on August 27, 2014, 10:19:34 am
As a collector let me said that your uncle just gave you the best gift that you can receive, about the cartridge it probably only need some cleaning, at this point of my life haven't seen a NES cartridge that doesn't work anyway welcome to the forum is nice to see youngest people that like retro games ;D

Hello, I'm new here, how's everyone doing?

As you can see, I am a huge fan of Namco and their Druaga series. It's sadly pretty niche so I don't meet people often who know about the games. But at least I play all the Namco classics so I'm sure people will know at least SOME of them!

Some of my favorites include Toypop, Pole Position, Rally X and others.

So I think this is all I have to say.

Bienvenue!  ;D Plus de Québécois, hourra! J'espère que tu apprécieras le forum autant que moi, la communauté est super ici :) Ma recommandation serait de fouiller les ventes de garages et les marchés aux puces, je trouve rarement des jeux, mais quand j'en trouve c'est des bons prix en général!

Bon mots, mon petit chou chou, Karyann   :-*

Ah shit, this is now VGC's (what?) TRI-lingual introduction thread   :o

voulez vous couchez avec moi, ce sois + les yeux (sp?) sans visage are both tough to get out of my head once I've heard them    :P

I don't know about Les yeux sans visage, I'll have to google that at home later  :P More languages are more fun!

it's from the Billy Idol song that's (as you already know) called Eyes w/o a Face   8)

welcome to all new members!

We should really just sticky this, add it to the Style Guide, and/or add it to the site's registration page, but:

Avoid & beware of the SOERA!    :P

Hello, I'm new here, how's everyone doing?

As you can see, I am a huge fan of Namco and their Druaga series. It's sadly pretty niche so I don't meet people often who know about the games. But at least I play all the Namco classics so I'm sure people will know at least SOME of them!

Some of my favorites include Toypop, Pole Position, Rally X and others.
Welcome to the site!  I have tried Tower of Druaga many times, but have never been able to get into it like other Namco classics like Pac-Man, Galaga, Pac and Pal, etc.  It does interest me though and it looks like the sequels are pretty cool as well.  I personally own the game on Namco Museum DS and the Japan GameCube release.  I might enjoy it more if there was a level select or something and the secret items were easier to find.

I just realized I haven't done this yet. Wanted to say Hi to everyone! I started logging my collection on here, but we are in the middle of a move and then I ended up buying a bunch of auctions off of ebay so now I have to wait till next month before I can go thru and re-organize my collection (it's a chaotic mess) . Both me and my husband collect video games he started collecting NES games while he was deployed overseas and I began collecting with Xbox360 and NES games both before we met. It was actually our game collections that brought us together! It's also our favorite thing to do.  (We've now been collecting for about 3 years together, and several years before that seperately)

We now collect from the Atari on up, and I'm about to start looking at how to repair game systems because we have just stacks and piles of game systems laying around some working and some not..

So really thats about it..he's in his late 20's and I'm in my early 30's.  I'm the one usually on here, and I'm here to learn and chirp in when I can.  I'm friendly down to earth and hoping to make some good internet friends on here.

Hello to all in the VGCollect community!

I signed up to the site a while ago, but it's only now I've found the time to start getting stuck in (to the forum at least).

My name may be familiar from 'around', especially on ROM Shepherd and as the project lead of TOSEC. I've been collecting various systems for years, especially Sega, though sadly my collection has been thinned significantly the last few years, I am still actively collecting and enjoying.

Looking forward to contributing to the community.

Hey man, don't worry about work to much about working while studying academics. I'm studying mech engineering as well, and you'll need the time for studying and doing homework for those core classes; working during the summer is the easiest time in my opinion.

Been collecting pretty much since I was a kid. I also do repairs as a side job and help admin a local FB Buy/Sale/Trade group here in OH/WV/KY. I'll have to upload some pics of my collection one of these days. Nice meeting everyone.

Welcome, newcomer! ;D

Hello guys!

I'm a newbie here. I was trying different sites to catalog my collection, but I finally decided yo stay here in VGcollect. Looks good, works fine and the forum people seems nice :)

I'm from Spain and I collect mostly Nintendo stuff. Nowadays I'm playing 3DS, but the system that lives in the core of my heart is the N64. I also have some Steam stuff, but sadly, most of them remain unplayed (damn you Humble Bundles, you are so tempting!).

See you around!

Hey guys, new to the site, I have always wanted to collect retro-to-modern gaming, mostly stuff I remember from my childhood and stuff I regret selling when I was younger. About 3 years ago I found my NES and also  bought a SNES... and had to buy a new N64 since my old one burnt out and had lots of games for it already. N64 being my fav system as a kid, I never sold it.

In the last year, I have taken it very serious and started to buy systems I needed a little at a time.

I now have. Atari 7800, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, PS 1/2/3, Xbox, Xbox 360, Sega Genesis, Sega CD, Gameboy (gray one), Gameboy Advance, Nintendo DSI, Sega Game Gear.

All I am missing that I want is, atari 2600, PS4, Xbox One, Wii U, Nintendo 3ds. And of course games.... Lots and lots of games.

Also looking for ideas on how to set up/display/ my systems, to make them look nice, but also make it easier so I can play any system I want, without having to always set it up....
Looks like a great website, and I love how I can browse each system and see all the games So I can add more to my wish list.

I am also in Southern California.

Hello everyone

Just joined today and loving it! By far the best game database site I've been to and looking forward to spending time here. I'm from Caledon a town close to Cape Town in South Africa. I only recently started collecting even though I've been gaming most my life. Would like to get into collecting some of the older systems like nes,snes and N64 but it's a bit difficult to get a hold of the consels not to mention the games without shipping them from other countries so it's mostly xbox 360 and pc for the time being.

Glad to be here

Hey guys my name is Sean and I'm 17, located in New York. I've had an account for a few months now but have never posted here, and I want to make some friends. I found out about this site thanks to MetalJesusRocks on YouTube. I love RPGs, especially Fire Emblem and other strategy rpgs, though I can't get into anything in the style of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance of Tactics Ogre Knight of Lodis. I collect for many different systems, and just went from being in a gamecube collecting mood to a more general one. I'm getting a ps3 in the mail soon, and I'd like to hear your favorite games that you'd recommend on the system as well.  8) Feel free to pm me and we can chat about games.

Welcome! I also enjoy SRPGs, but can't get into FF Tactics or Tactics Ogre. I find their pace to be a bit slow, even for an SRPG.
If you're getting a PS3 and like SRPGs, I would recommend starting with Disgaea D2. Tears to Tiara II also came out recently, and I've heard good things about it. Unfortunately, I haven't had the time to start it yet, but it should be really good. Also, feel free to add me on PSN. My PSN ID is the same as the one in my sig. :)

My name is Thom. I'm a 33 year old journalist/musician from Brazil. I own some consoles - Atari 2600 NES, Master System, SNES, Genesis, PSX, Dreamcast and PS2 - but I'm not a heavy collector. Hopefully I'll be able to contribute in some way to these forums.

Welcome, my friend.  Feel free to jump right in.  You don't have to have a huge collection to be part of this crowd.  We have members with 10,000 games all the way down to 10 games.  We all share that love for games. 

I have this preconceived notion that every Brazilian is into Jiu Jitsu.  I think that because every Brazilian I have ever met has been in a Jiu Jitsu setting.  So, thanks to you and your people for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Brazilian Barbeque, and Brazilian women. 

Again, welcome! And enjoy VGCollect.com.  May I ask how you found us?

Hi everyone, my name is Adam. I've been gaming since the NES and owned just about every system up to the PS3. I would usually just sell my old system and games whenever I got something new. Lately I've been wanting to play some of the older games I used to have. Just bought a Genesis this week and hope to get a PS2 soon. Looking forward to using the site and meeting some cool people.

DUDE!!! You just started this week???  Awesome!  I'll tell you first that this bunch of folks will lead you down a path of hoarding collecting like no other.  Hope you have plenty of room.   ;)

I'm kidding.  Good to have you.  Feel free to jump right in.  One word of warning though, beware of soera.  He's... shifty.

Since you've been playing games since back in the day, I'm sure you have some favorites.  What kind of stuff are you into?

Hello!  My name is Steve, but gf78 here.  I also go by GamerFrom78 on various forums, my PSN ID and I've used that since back around '97 when I started posting on the videogamereview.com website which is long since defunct.  I've been gaming since 1978, but GamerSince78 didn't sound as good.

I've actually sold off the bulk of my collection over the last few years as raising two growing girls who needed their own bedrooms was more important than a mini-museum of gaming goodness.  I used to collect anything and everything, but now focus on PlayStation stuff only.  PlayStation holds a special place in my gaming heart for many reasons.

I frequently end up buying every game in a series as my OCD will not permit me to own Dragon Age Inquisition (for example) without also currently owning Dragon Age Origins, awakening and II.   :o  Most recently, I picked up Tekken 1 and 3 at a used game store and have systematically hunted down every other single Tekken game relentlessly.

In my book - you've already got 3 things going in your favor towards fitting right in with the rest of us & feeling the "kicking off your shoes, putting up your feet, and sticking around for awhile" kind of relaxation & comfort here:

1st = you're far, far, far from alone here in loving & focussing on all things 'PlayStation',

2nd = in general, our regulars here are older than the average gaming site (hell - even our younger members are/act pretty mature for their ages), so...many of us will know what you're talking about (and have used & played games on) things that you may mention concerning  "The Ancient Things", even when you speak/write of them in their now long-dead, ancient, & forgotten  'native' tongue...things like a 2600, C64, Jaguars that you don't drive or run away from, Apples that you can't eat, rotary & (waiting in line to use a) pay phones, rabbit ears & antennas, slugs, floppy discs, and - even tv's that you'd have to make physical contact with to work, and

3rd = we've ALL gots to "catch em all" here...only the definition of all (ie systems, series, genres, etc) changes ;)

A cautionary, yet sadly necessary (pro)tip, warning, bit of friendly advice to all new members here:

Go to ANY & ALL lengths to avoid & stay away from the indescribable entity, known only as...

Thanks for the warm welcome.  I had to laugh about the television comment.  My first television in my room as a kid was a small black & white with rabbit ears and a separate UHF dial with a zillion little numbers on it.  Good times!   8)

Not trying to poo-poo Nintendo's significant contributions to gaming, but Sony really brought it home for me with PlayStation.  Before the PS1, there were no games (in significant measure) on a home console like Resident Evil, Ridge Racer, Tekken, Soul Blade (Edge) and Tomb Raider.  Old series like Castlevania, Metal Gear and Final Fantasy simply exploded into blockbusters on PlayStation.  Gran Turismo was the first sim racer and Ape Escape remains one of my all-time favorites with it's unique (at the time) use of the dual-analog control setup which is commonplace today, but completely revolutionary for it's time.  PlayStation(s) have innovated with playing CD's, DVD's and BluRay's as well.  PS2 was the first modern day (post Atari & Genesis) system with true backward-compatibility with no add-on needed. 

Well, rambled on long enough.  Look forward to "building" my collection here and having lots of future conversations.

Nice collection.  Once upon a time many moons ago, I had many of the same PS1/PS2 RPG's.  One of my most recent finds was Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance II.  Some kid went into the local Gamestop to try and trade this and some other PS2 games in about a month ago.  When they told him they don't take PS2 games any longer, he wanted to pitch it.  My buddy Mike bought it from him dirt cheap and I paid $10 for it.  Complete with everything and just some minor scratches on the back of the disc that would buff out easily.  Since I never had that game and always wanted it without paying a ridiculous premium to obtain it, I was quite happy.  Now if I can just lay my hands on a really nice, reasonably priced copy of Dark Cloud 2..... :'(

I've got about 50 more PS1 games I am working on.  Unfortunately, they seem to be the more expensive titles for the most part.  Who would have thought that stuff like Jersey Devil, Tomba, Jumping Flash and Twisted Metal (among others) would be so expensive these days?  Other pricey titles are Resident Evil games and anything Squaresoft put out.

Hi all,

I'm Asmodean from Sweden. I'm currently in the process of adding my collection here, which mainly consists of Sega and Commodore games this far. My main interests in collecting is mainly the Sega consoles and the early home computers we had here in Europe (Commodore 64/128, Amiga (all flavours), Atari ST/STE etc). Altough I have had computers/consoles for a long while, I haven't really been into collecting as much as I have been the last months.

Anyway, great site! I also collect vinyl records so I was looking for something like discogs, but for video games, and this site seems to be almost that :)

Hi Everyone.  My name is Jason, but I go by turf or turf1218 out here on the interwebs.  I've been MIA from an online family for a couple of months.  I'm looking to rectify this and get back into the fold. 

I'm very much into the NES.  I am shooting for a complete set.  I'm hoping that that can happen in 2015.  I only have 40 to go!

I started a YouTube series call The Complete NES Review, but that format has been changed by forces outside my control.  I do plan on bringing it back, but I'm going to have to make some serious changes. 

I also collect just about any system there is.  I may have too much stuff.  I hope to make lots of new friends here.

Hello Everyone,

I just joined the site.  I'll start by saying a little bit about myself. My name is Richie and  I have always loved video games and am a computer science major at the University of Wisconsin.  Before that I was in the Army.  When I left for the Army, my video game collection was stolen out of storage while I was in Iraq.  So needless to say, I missed out on any opportunity to amass a great collection by paying below current market value.  My favorite system is PS1, but I just started delving into Dreamcast collecting! (How did I completely miss this console?)  I am an avid RPG lover, and once I get a chance to add my entire collection to the database, you will see that.  Also a big SCHMUP fan.  Anyways, I don't want ramble on, just wanted to introduce myself and get to know everyone in the community. 

Thanks,
Richie

Hello folks, I'm Adam!

I've been a gamer since I was little guy, saving up money to get my next game or console. I've grown up playing consoles like the N64, Playstation, Dreamcast, and Xbox to name a few. Within the last year, I've started getting very interested in checking out games before my time and also what games I've missed on consoles I have. I wouldn't really consider myself a "collector" because I only want games that I would find interesting. I'm not after completing any system's library. Not yet anyways ;) . At the end of high school I got into PC gaming also, so I've since spent far too much money on a graphics card. I feel like my collection is fairly small, but after watching lots of Game Sack and Classic Game Room my wishlist has been growing at an alarming rate!

My favorite series/franchises:
- Metal Gear Solid
- Phantasy Star Online
- Oddworld

Outside of video games, I collect mechanical keyboards and key caps along with Gundam anime. I have an ErgoDox (https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10153346532915021.1073741825.594780020&type=1&l=1df5b080cd) that I built myself and customized which I'm very proud of. I also recently acquired a fairly rare IBM Model M SSK (Space Saver Keyboard) manufactured 27 November 1989 that I was excited to find. It's in good condition aside from a couple sticky keys that I need to fix. As for Gundam, I think (?) I have all the Gundam DVD/Bluray collections that released in the U.S. aside from small one-release episodes. I'm starting to look into importing other Gundam series that never made it over the pond, but that's going to be expensive :)

VGCollect is a great site! I know my collection isn't huge, but it is really nice to have it all cataloged with notes. I just started running into instances where I think, "Wait, do I own this game?" I started looking for cataloging software, and VGCollect looked like nicest one. I'm looking forward to having VGCollect along for the ride on growing my collection!

Hey all, hows it hangin'?

My name is Asa (ace-uh), and I only really started seriously collecting about a year ago, though I've been gaming for most of my life. There's still a TON of consoles, games, etc. that I would like to get at some point, but I'm still quite the n00b. I'm an upcoming senior in college too (nursing is my other passion alongside video games), so my time and money to spend on video games is also limited somewhat.

Regardless, it seems like this is a great site with some really great users, so I'm glad to get things started here!  :)

Welcome Asa. You found a sweet spot on the interwebs.

Don't worry about being new to this. No one here cares. If it's what you want, it's your collection. Enjoy it.

Nice to meet you, fellow collectors :)

I've been using VGC for quite some time, and it's about time I show up in the forums..

I'm a gamer from France and I collect mainly retro NTSC games and hardware - not a easy task in our PAL territories. I have a retrogaming room project that I'll be able to start by 2016 when my house construction will be over, I'll post some updates on my progress if you like !

I'm working in IT engineering as a front-end developer and I'm running a small blog (http://www.wkd4496.net/) about my hobbies, it's written in french though.. ;)

In advance I apologize if my english is a bit flawed, it's not my native language  :-X

It's great to see fellow French speaker! I understand your woes of collecting NTSC in a PAL territory. Although I am Canadian, I moved away for a few years into a PAL territory (that has no retro gaming culture) and finding games in next to impossible.

Merci! ;)

For most games I have to import them as well but luckily there are some cool online sellers with fair prices in UK and Netherlands that got a lot of NTSC stuff, when available it saves me the import taxes. It's usually harder to get US than JP though...

As you may have noticed my specific taste in video-games are primarily from 1980-2005. I have been a gamer as long as I can remember. My first console being the Nintendo Entertainment System back in 1990s shortly after Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Being an only child I was spoiled to a point of playing most releases for these consoles at launch either from rental or store purchase. Besides console gaming, arcade games also are a favorite of mine. Personally I enjoy playing titles that didn't reach the mass audience and/or that were shelved away from either lack of exposure or from an over-saturated market on a specific formula at the time. Original, genre-breaking titles are also very captivating to me.

I'm a video gamer that was born in the 1980s. I would consider the new generation of gaming more of a ponzi scheme; recycled game play with content deliberately removed so the consumer is forced to shell out more cash for it. The whole Download content, micro-transactions, pay-as-you-play method is atrocious - more or less the elephant in the room for contemporary gamers. Although I consider myself a gamer I have very little interest in the seventh, and current generation of systems and games. The last console I bought was the Microsoft Xbox 360 solely for arcade ports of my favorite series.

In 2004 I contributed to a dozen of p2p communities one of them being the private 'Sega Saturn Torrents'. I've done so weekly for a year until one-by-one the websites were shut down or discontinued. I'm also the administrator of a retro video game website entitled 'Special-Attack' that was online from 2005-2012 that featured reviews of obscure games, articles, opinions, composed by myself. Special-Attack is temporarily shut-down but all the posts were saved+encrypted and will return to the net in the coming future.

As of 2010 to present I've sold much of my collection to focus on primarily two Japanese systems; NEC PC Engine CD and Sega Saturn. You can view my gallery @imgur NEC1989 X SEGA1994 (http://imgur.com/a/89TxN)

■ Fan of classic Sega / Hudson / Compile

Hello all! My name is Matt. I have just really started getting back into collecting and building up my game library. I focus more on Nintendo games, as I find those not only hold their value, but also in most cases age the best. I also like to write so I started a blog where I write reviews for the Nintendo games that I have played. It's just getting off it's feet so please feel free to check it out: http://n1nten0plan3t.tumblr.com/

This is only my second post or so, but I am hoping to get a bit more active on these forums as I like what I have seen so far  :)

Hello all! I thought I might actually post here finally. I have been around for a few years, but I never really posted anything. I absolutely love collecting games! My goal really isn't to collect games for every system out there, but I want to get any games that are interesting/good games, no matter what system or generation they are from. My main interest is collecting RPGs, however, I do like other genres as well and collect for them too.

I have basically been collecting games my whole life. It started when I was a little girl, my dad would always sit and play the NES and SNES, and I adored watching him. One day he handed me the controller for the original Super Mario Bros and told me to play. Ever since that day, gaming has been my thing.

My collection is around 350 physical games at the current moment, according to my list. This does not count a huge amount of digital games I own as well across different consoles that I have not entered into this site. I only use this site to help keep track of my physical copies of games. I wish I could have saved every game I have ever gotten, but sometimes I have to get rid of games for various reasons. If I still had every game I ever owned, my collection would probably be been 400-500 games, lol.

Anyway, nice to be with my fellow collectors! Feel free to check out my collection if you are curious, btw.  ;D

Hi everyone, my name's Alex. I'm 26, and I'm from Orlando, Florida. I mostly collect PS2 right now, but I plan on eventually expanding into Nintendo stuff. My collection is pretty small, but most of it has been acquired in the past 6 months or so. I started a bit late (both with gaming and collecting, the first console I ever owned was a PS1), but I kept something like 85-90% of everything I ever purchased, but I didn't keep the boxes. So now I have to go back and either buy another copy or track down manuals and case art. I mostly collect racing and FPS games, but I'm trying to branch out from that and try different genres. Anyway it's nice to formally introduce myself, and I'll see y'all later.

Thought I'd drop by and say hello. I'm from Germany, 28. I started out at an early age in around '92/'93 with the C64, SNES, Mega Drive and Game Boy, continued later on with the PSX and N64, GC and a bit of PS2 and Wii then. Only played a few older PC/DOS or Amiga titles back then. The 16/32/64 bitters are still my main interest to this day though I occassionally check out new major titles and indies as well. I do plan on expanding on my NES and C64 stuff though.

During my teens I had a silly moment and sold a sizeable chunk of my SNES collection for peanuts. Then I got seriously into vinyl & demo tape collecting and other music related stuff which consumed most of my disposable incoming for over 12 years. Means I checked up on games very sparsely most of the time. A couple of months ago my old love somehow was revived again and I painfully bought those childhood games back as well as PSX ones of which I only had burnt copies of (yeah who didn't do this?). Most of these weren't very rare or really expensive titles, but compared to what I sold them for it hurt quite a bit...

Well and by thinking - if I already catalogued my music collection on the net, why not do the same with my game stuff - I found this place and signed up some weeks ago. Anyway, I think I really like this forum and hope my english isn't too off-putting for the appearantly mostly american based people here (I'm trying!). Cheers!

Hey welcome aboard, I too recently joined myself.

I can relate to most of your introduction;

I'm 27 from United States. Also started out playing at an early age, around 1990 with the MS-DOS, NES, eventually SNES and Game Boy Pocket continued with SAT and PSX, never cared for N64 (still dont) PS2, GC, and a bit of X360. Im also fond of 16/32 and 8-bit era games. At one point during my childhood my friend literally gave me his entire SNES collection of loose cartridges, around 45 or so. I eventually traded them in, or sold them which I also regretted. As for burnt copies I had/have many and which took up most of my time around 2004-2009 playing copied games for Sega Saturn and Sony PlayStation. Decided to buy actual games for those consoles 2013-Present since I wore down my lens from reading poor quality CD-R in time.

A lot of people trade in stuff and regret it later and like I said, pirating was rampant as it was super easy to do so yeah I think we are in good company :).
Maybe take a peek at some N64 games though. I know its graphics look super ugly for the most part today but there are still some gems. Rare had its peak time and released a lot of enjoyable games that are still fun today. Blast Corps f.ex. stood the test of time amazingly well IMO! Also there is the awesome Doom spin off if you enjoy old fashioned FPSs with an intense atmosphere. And both Zelda games & Mario 64 of course.

Re: early age. I kind of remember pissing myself because I could not figure out how to pause the game in Super Ghouls'n'Ghosts to go take a leak. Mom was super angry of course ;). We both took turns on Super Metroid and beat it together though - I was good at most bosses but Crocomire and both self destruction countdowns made me freak out completely so these were her professions. Good times :)

Hey, I'm Eli, or gitaroo! I'm a bit on the younger side, but I've been seriously collecting since I was 15. I'm a huge fan of fighting games, JRPG's, and rhythm games and you can definitely see that in my collection. Besides collecting games, I also collect figures and other merch. My collection is at MFC: gamagooru (http://myfigurecollection.net/profile/gamagooru)

My top 10 favorite games are probably Persona 4, No More Heroes, Gitaroo Man, any BEMANI game, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Street Fighter, E.X. Troopers, and Kirby Super Star.

On the more professional and personal side, I'm going to school to become a freelance graphic designer. I used to be a huge music major, but after 6 years, including 5 years of going to an arts school, I decided it wasn't really my thing. Speaking of music, I'm also super interested in music production and management.
I hope to post more here, as well as get to know some of you guys!  :D

Hey guys, figured I would do one of these things finally. Just got into this forum thing.

I'm Mike. I'm 23 from New York City. I'm in the Navy right now in Connecticut. I started playing with my brother's copy of the original Zelda. Eventually I got a Gameboy and got hooked in by Pokemon Red/Blue. Since then I loved almost all handhelds. I have a hectic collection of whatever I feel like getting at the time. I mostly stay in the Sony or handheld areas for now. I look forward to getting to know some more of you guys around here. Cheers!

Howdy! I'm new, had been looking for a nice way to catalog my collection and this site offers just that :)

Been gaming since I was three, starting with the good old C64 but I was never much of a collector for the most part. I committed just about every sin known to collectors; sold my old consoles when I got new ones, sold the guts of my PS2 library to buy a 360, and regularly traded in games to get new ones. I'd say I started collecting about three years ago when I realised I'd stopped trading in games and had amassed about 80 titles for my 360 which was console of choice; around that time I also decided I wanted a handheld, something I hadn't owned for years so I asked for a 3DS for Xmas. The following year I re-bought a PSP, got a PS3, replaced my broken PS2 and started buying games for the Wii that was collecting dust in the family room. I haven't looked back since :) I'm not a hardcore collector in that I have no plans for a complete SNES library for example (I don't currently own a single SNES cart :D); I more so stick to collecting for series/franchises that I love, in particular RPGs.

So yeah, happy to be here :)

  Hello! Retro gamer living in Japan. I am originally from New York. My collection thus far includes games from Famicom, Super Famicom, GB, GBA, Virtual Boy (Finally found one boxed, working, and at a good price), Sega Genesis, SS, PCE(turbo gfx), Playstation, and Playstation 2. I do have games after that and play current gen as well but wont include those (everything non xbox basically). Since I live in Japan obviously my collection is all Japanese releases! Although I do have my old SNES games and such back home but thats all boxed up in NY :(.

  Hope to start adding my collection to the database soon which is going to take a long time! My famicom collection is probably my largest collection but I find more for super famicom and ps2 more now a days. Sifting through the same pachinko games and repeats got tiring for famicom haha.

  If there are any other collectors based here in Japan let me know =D 宜しくお願いします!

  Hope to start adding my collection to the database soon which is going to take a long time! My famicom collection is probably my largest collection but I find more for super famicom and ps2 more now a days. Sifting through the same pachinko games and repeats got tiring for famicom haha.

  If there are any other collectors based here in Japan let me know =D 宜しくお願いします!
I envy you, living in Japan  ;D Can't wait to see your collection.

Welcome to the forums!

Welcome aboard! We don't have many collectors living in Japan as far as I know, so you will probably own a lot of items not currently in the database.  :) I can't wait to see your collection!

Hey there,

My name's Ben.  Been playing games for about 21 years now and there's no end in sight.  Born and raised in Rhode Island, still living here today.  I'm sure i'm in the same boat as some of you when I say i sold my collection when I was younger without thinking twice about it.  Now, for the past year or so i've been trying to rebuild my collection of old games (everything pre 2005.)  Making decent progress, but this site will definitely help.  Glad to join.

Dear vgcollectors!

My name is David and I used to be more of a hardcore gamer. Nowadays, I seldom find the time to play games at all... so I've mostly turned toward collecting games I'd like to play in the future. As a father, most of my spare time is consumed together with my two year old daughter. I'm born in Stockholm but I've spent most of my life in the northern parts of Sweden. I currently reside in Umeå, home of Refused and Meshuggah.

I missed the whole DS era, so that's something I first set out to change when I started collecting (again). Now I've turned toward japanese releases of games that I've enjoyed in the past. In the future I'd like to pick up a PS Vita and a new 3DS.

Oh... and I'd love to get my hands on a complete PAL Kid Icarus short box for the NES... and the Metroid / Kid Icarus split 7" vinyl single!

Thank you for the opportunity to be a member of such a fine forum!

I've been here a few weeks now, I think, and finally managed to get over the 1000 items listed on VG Collect point last night.

I'm British, have been gaming for 30 years and have been collecting for at least 20, on and off, after having a massive clearout several years ago I have mostly replaced what I foolishly sold or traded away and have built on the collection even further, having above 2000 individually boxed video games from the typical 8-bit and 16-bit home computers which dominated the gaming scene in the UK during the 80s and early 90s through to PC games of all ages and consoles/games from the NES/Master System through to current-gen systems. The collection also contains several strategy guides and a smattering of soundtracks and promotional art books.

I'm old fashioned and consider games that don't come on physical media to be un-owned, so the long overdue re-emergence of console budget games and indie titles offering physical releases is extremely welcome.

My main goals as of now are filling up gaps in the collection from the PS2, DS, PS3 and 360 libraries while picking up random retro games of interest, particularly PC games. I don't go for full sets, only games I would actually play, which typically fall into the action and RPG side of things and away from deep strategy or sports. I rarely pay anything more than a few pounds for an individual game unless it's a modern title or I've used finds to trade with retailers - I like 'the hunt' and hate the idea of paying market price for games.

Yeah, so hi guys, looking forward to chatting and rifling through your collections :D

Hi there, I'm new here. I am Bubsystation.

Of course true to my name I have all the Bubsy (and have promptly added them to my collection) Bubsy 1 and II (and SUper Bubsy) are pretty decent games. I fell 3D, which itself was ambitious just came out after two better games, kind of gave the series a bad rep, it was a pretty popular series to.

I play modern and classic games, though the upcoming ideas for how modern consoles will work like PS4K for example have me questioning where I'll go. I may go PC. Or if Xbox doesn't actually copy them I may just stick with only 1 console.

You must be the only person I've ever come across who is so into Bubsy that they'd name themselves after him.

For the record I've never played the originals but I have played 3D; and a friend and I used to joke it was the worst game he owned.

Anyways welcome :)

Hi, my name is Matt and my daughter(Novi) and I are going to start collecting cartridge games and game systems. We plan to start with NES and SNES.

I plan to get at least 80% of our collection in person, for example trade someone locally, pawn shop, thrift stores, flea markets, or meet up with someone in a parking lot i found on craigslist. I want to avoid ordering on Ebay or stuff like that because again its something i want to get my Daughter, and starting young at 5yrs old and eventually my 2yr old daughter as well. Kinda a father/daughter bonding thing. That is the hope at least.

Look forward to shareing with all of yall what we find and maybe even trading with yall once we start getting duplicates.

Hi guys!!,
               My name is Nicholas, I'm a Chilean video game player since I was 4 years old (My brother gave me his Atari 800XE as birthday present and screw up my life  ;D). I started collecting video games since 2015 mainly Gamecube (JP), PSP and PS3 games to recover the games which I spent a lot of time playing through my life. I hope to spend a great time here in the forum and share all my treasures with all of you  ;D

Hello!

I joined recently, and so far I'm really enjoying the site! Really nice to see so much content in the database, and I love adding information when I come across games missing artworks or information.

I go by the username Keikuina everywhere on the internet (except Twitter, where it's Keikuiina because someone took it for some reason D; ), and my name's Olivier. I'm from Canada, and I've been playing video games since I was 3 years old, erasing my dad's save files in NHL Stanley Cup on the SNES.

Now, I've been collecting games since around 2008, slowly and steadily, and it's a lot of fun! But it's an expensive hobby. A few months ago I got started on my Youtube channel, and have been updating my video game pick-ups weekly, which will now change to biweekly. When I have more time, I'm planning on doing Let's Plays! Mostly of games I've never played before, but there are games I have played and didn't finish, and this whole channel gives me more reasons to play that huge backlog of games!

I collect for pretty much every consoles from Nintendo, Sega, PlayStation, and the original Xbox. This includes the Famicom and Super Famicom. There are still consoles I want to get, but I can't at the moment, so that will have to wait.

So far, my biggest collection is my PS2 library with 192 as of now (or 201 if I count duplicates and some games I wanna sell).

While I probably won't be very active on the forums, I'll still look around if I need information for one thing or another. I hope we get along :D

Greetings and salad dressing. 

Joined a while back, still sorting through what I have to add to my collection here, plus a few things that aren't here yet.  Plus, I keep adding games to my collection, making my backlog of games even longer than it should be.  Doesn't help that there's a store with used games at the mall I maintain - I have spent way too much on consoles and games there.  I have a few oldies, but nothing older than an Intellivision or a few games on 5.25" floppy at the moment.  Also, I've nothing I consider rare yet, just a couple imports and an Atari board with a Road Blasters ROM installed to take home at some point.

Been gaming since the pre-NES era and even got to play some computer games at school on an Apple II (complete with green monochrome monitor), stuff like Castle Wolfenstein, Montezuma's Revenge, plus I got to play Karateka and Elevator Action on the IBM that had a color monitor.  Good times.  My first console was an Intellivision (which I still have), then we had a Magnavox Odyssey 300.  My mom later bought me an NES (still have the orange zapper, but that's it) in 1990 and I bought my first two games after renting some games at a video store - Final Fantasy and Gauntlet II. 

Now, 25 years or so later... I'm still playing games.  Just wish I had more time to finish them before moving on to another; it's bad habit of mine to start playing games while I have yet to finish others.  I may learn to stop doing that some day.

Hi all, new member to this forum. Just a quick intro to who I am. I'm a middle aged retro gaming enthusiast from St. Louis. Grew up with the NES and SNES but started collecting all systems in the late 90's/early 2000's thanks to ebay. Own nearly every home console from late 70's to the early 2000's from Atari to Intellevision to Coleco to Nintendo to Sega to Sony. NES is my favorite system due to the iconic games and nostalgia but also enjoy collecting for TG-16, Sega Genesis/CD, Saturn and Dreamcast consoles. What I'm playing and looking for is constantly changing but this allows me to play all the consoles I own.

I'll slowly be uploading my collection to the database as I go, so far I have only uploaded my Genesis/32X/CD collection since that is what I'm playing. Thanks for the great layout of the database and the forum to discuss retro gaming with others.
Title: Re: Intro thread
Post by: necrosexual on July 03, 2016, 08:32:56 pm
never made a post here cause intro forums usually aren't my jam but ye

ahhh i got into collecting around... idk, age 15 or so? around 2008/2009.
i'm 23 in a week now... but collection is pretty small because life circumstances over time makes me have to sell some games here and there, you know.
(especially when i was younger, now it's last resort type deals)
i'll admit i'm more of a modern collector, if only because retro games are hella expensive and i can't afford them

i got into collecting due to feelings of 'inadequacy', tbh. i'm not good at games, but i enjoy them, and being a gamer who sucks at games with nothing to back up their cred kinda sucks, so instead of being all 'imma git gud' i was just like
*pours a fountain of cash into game stores and flea markets lmao*
i guess i suffer from inadequacy complex lmao, but i like collecting them (probably more than playing... oops)

i live in poverty these days, and no one buys me games, so it's slow coming but i persist. i have to be choosy, i guess, i miss out on a lot of CEs and stuff i'd love to have, but that's all right.

as for games i do like, i like games with cute things in them. usually when i have to answer 'what's your favourite kind of game' my response will usually be 'if it doesn't have cute girls i don't play it'.
i also like chill games.
i don't play multiplayer and i don't play online.

ye.

also my psnprofile is lacking a lot because most of my trophies synced to the wrong account when i hooked back up to the internet after months of no internet, so a lot of them got lost to the void, haha.

my, eh, proudest purchase so far is the hyperdimension neptunia re;birth 1 collector's edition... 1/1000, and i love it. very happy i nailed that one. gone in a few seconds that night.

I grew up with NES, amiga and game boy, but i fall in love with retrogaming two years ago, when i found my old game boy pocket in a drawer and start to search new cartridge for it.
Now the situation gets a bit out of hands, and i can't stop to expand my libraries   :-[

I like to collect rare and limited consoles&games.
Usually playing RPGs, platform and adventures.

Hope i can help with your great database, surely it will help me keeping track of my games  ;D

Cheers

Hey all
I've been a member of this site for a couple of years, but only to keep track of my game collection. Finally decided to join the discussion, mainly because my family and I recently moved to a larger house in Indiana and I now have a retro-gaming area where I can get most of my old consoles and games out of storage.

I grew up during the golden age of arcades, playing classics like Ms Pac Man, Dig Dug, and Q*Bert, my all-time favorite game. My first home console was the Atari 2600, which was given away a few years later. Eventually got an NES, and I have kept every system I've acquired since then. I enjoy about every genre except for sports games; action, adventure, beat-em-up, platformer, RPG, shmup, FPS, I have favorites in each category. My personal top-10 games is a mixture of genres and eras, from Q*Bert to arcade TMNT to Final Fantasy VI to Shadow of the Colossus to Bioshock Infinite. I still consider my best gaming accomplishment to be finishing NES Contra twice consecutively without dying; at the time, I never needed the 30-man code :D

Glad to be here, I just enjoy discussing classic games with people who know what I'm talking about :)

Thanks.
It was not even something I was trying to do. I just happened to be good enough at Contra do get through it with minimal deaths, and I just felt like continuing after finishing it. I didn't realize what I had done until it was over.

And I'm sure not claiming to be some gaming god, I just happened to be good at that one game. There's a number of games that I wasn't able to finish that many others did, like Zelda II and Final Fantasy. Hell, in FF I couldn't get past the first fiend; I would keep grinding for ages and felt like I never got any stronger, and just got tired of grinding so much.

Ive always needed the 30 man code and I usually still dont beat the game. I did beat Zelda II and FF though. Different skill sets I guess. :) Thats why there are so many different games.
