Very interesting I don't think I'll ever be into owning one but liked learning about it thanks!

I got the family a Switch at launch. Definitely the best Nintendo system since Gamecube. They did almost the impossible given the cliff they were being sent over with the Wii-U. Very impressive turn around.

Favorite games include:
 - Zelda BotW
 - Mario Kart
 - Smash

The best part of the Switch is the memories with my kids. Started with them getting it. I had created a town-wide clue hunt for them. Took them to all their favorite places including McDonalds for lunch... where they had Mario happy meals. Each stop along the way they had a small 2.5" clue box with a clue inside. I made them each look like this:



Sometimes there would be a plush Yoshi holding the clue box. Enough that each kiddo got a plush in their favorite color. Had fun at the park following clues as well. Eventually they led back home where there was a 14" box painted to look like the yellow clue box shown above. They opened it and found the system, controllers and a couple games.

Beyond the gifting of the system, just spending time playing with my kids has been great. They know any games we have on the Switch is something they can play without worrying about ratings.

One of my kids has Animal Crossing as their favorite series of all time. I still don't understand the appeal but she loves it.

What a great story! I like spending quality time with my kids too and video games were a thing we all enjoyed even into their adulthood.

I don't think anyone mentioned these.

Veggie World - game is awful but very obscure
Astro Boy
Wing Island - it's like pilot wings if you like that sort thing
Worms a space oddity - if you like worms games or mindless fun these are cool
Worms battle islands
Sniper Elite
Maximum racing crash car racer
Maximum sprint cars - Maximum games are low print runs = obscure/rare
Kore Gang - fun but sometimes the controls need a little patience
Gunblade NY & LA Machine Guns Arcade Hits Pack

Personally I find no reason to limit myself I can find really good games to play across multiple platforms and generations it's a great time to be a gamer!

General / Games you almost Finished but gave up on.

I've always been bothered by some games that I got right to the end of and got destroyed by the last boss over and over till I quit. I would like to retry some of them but my saves are long gone now. And I fear I won't be able to beat the game again and waste my time. This is a list of some that haunt me. Do you have any games that haunt you too?

1.Iron Tank (nes) I remeber this game being hard as balls. I got to the last boss but could never put him down.
2.Mike Tysons punch-out (nes) they don't call him iron mike for nothing he kicks the crap out of me every time.
3.Extermination (ps2) love this 3rd person horror shooter but hate the last boss. I was so close to beating him many times it drove me nuts.
4.Call of Duty 2 (Xbox 360) this one I beat but I find it impossible to beat on the hardest difficulty. One of the last levels has you in a tower and I get wasted every try.

And many others Helfire (Genesis) Actrazor 2 (snes) to name a couple more maybe I should try again? Or just admit defeat.

Without a doubt I would never collect anything again! I would just try to enjoy the rest of my time on planet earth I always wanted to take up fishing so maybe that.

First off I want to say this is not to brag I have been collecting for almost 40 years so most of the stuff I have was acquired over long time and alot cheaper than today so no hate please. I am lucky to have very understanding parents who let me transform their downstairs into a large mancave because my home was to small to fit my collection. But I keep a very small part of my collection in my home of stuff I want to play. That said here goes.

Display case 1 boxed nes
Display case 2 boxed snes
Display case 3 handheld systems
Display case 4 special ed too big to fit on shelves
Display case 5 consoles
Display case 6 controlers
Display case 7 statues

Wall 1 loose nes,loose snes,saturn,sega cd,3do
Wall 2 computer,ps1,ps2,ps3,ps4,psp,ds,3ds,gamecube,wii,xbox,n64 cib and loose,neo geo mvs,gameboy,gbc,gamegear,virtualboy,gba carts
Wall 3 xbox 360,xbox one,xbox series x

Wall 5 more special ed and boxed consoles,atari 2600,5200,jaguar games

Interesting! Are the display cases standard bookshelves or some other type of case?
 
Regular store display cases and walls have custom built shelves I did myself

I remember Blue Dragon and Last Remnant for Xbox 360 being rather tough.
