I've been dabbling in them recently as KF 1 - 3 and Shadow Tower are/were(?) free on the Japanese PS+ service. I'm terrible at them, and I love it. They're the sort of games that I never want to get good at or even finish, because I'm just enjoying wandering around exploring and finding cool things in out-of-the-way places (and then getting killed by whatever was nearby) :)

I don't get all the love for Nights.

It's a very pretty game, but beyond that, there's not much there, IMO. You fly around in a gigantic circle, collect orbs, and do loopdy-loops. It just seems very simplistic, and kind of pointless other than it being a showcase for what the Saturn was capable of graphically. Kind of like Sega's version of Pilotwings.

Shmups can be "beaten" by holding down the fire button and hitting continue when you die, but it's really all about the score - just like NiGHTS. :)

Not taking this too seriously (as in, I'm not listing these on any sort of proper objective scale) -

NiGHTS into Dreams
Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst (only specifying BB because each successive version adds more to an already brilliant game)
Puyu Puyo Tsuu
Puzzle Bobble 2X
Mushihimesama Futari
Rod Land
Kiseki series
Sakura Taisen 1 and 3
Boku no Natsuyasumi series
Fantasia Sango series
Gu Jian Qi Tan series

The remakes are very good - and Japan only ;)

Phantasy Star 1 and 4 are amazing, 2 was good but is incredibly grindy and dated now and 3 was never good to start with. Phantasy Star Online is totally different bar a few name-checks and designs, and it's also brilliant :) If you want to play multiplayer you'll have to pick up one of the GC releases as the DC games only supported online multiplayer. The GC games also have extra classes/quests/areas/weapons, etc.

I remember playing that while my dad was doing the ironing behind me - he threw a sock at my head and burst out laughing as I jumped out of my skin XD

I only ever had Shikigami no Shiro 2 and Shin Megami Tensei: NiNE. The former's available elsewhere and the latter is nothing more than a little peek into what the cancelled Xbox SMT MMO would have looked like.

Happy to help :)

You buy one motherboard then plug the games into it - just like you'd buy a SNES and then buy SNES games to plug into it - it's no more complicated than that for MVS games.

There's one important thing you missed there - an MVS motherboard for the MVS carts to go into! But other than that you're right :)

Playstation's aren't rare (or expensive) by any stretch of the imagination, there's no way I'd try to clean something that filthy either.

I remember one customer being surprised that I refused to accept his games for trade in when he pulled them out of his underwear right in front of me - and another who said "Oh don't worry about that mark, it's just some rat excrement (turned out from his pet rat) :o

Samurai Spirits II, IMO honestly one of the best beat 'em ups ever, can be had CIB for AES for about £20. Yes, some games are £500+, but not all - and not all the good ones either. MVS is still the better option (I'd never be able to afford Blazing Star on AES, but I've had the MVS cart for a good while now), but a decent AES collection isn't impossible.

As for superguns, etc - please take a look at the blog post I mentioned earlier in this topic ^^~

Not really collecting but the next gaming purchases I have in mind are -

1) Buy a Vita
2) Buy armfuls of doujin games I've been meaning to buy but not got around to
