Well, what are you into game wise? While it may seem like a fun hobby, it can also be both stressful and expensive.

Yeah, depends on how seriously you take it. I try to keep it not too serious by just browsing game stores and search around for games I really enjoyed in the past (and still enjoy). Welcome to the forums!

Hey there!  I'm Bruce.  I've been playing video games since I was 7 years old starting with an Atari 2600.  I have owned many systems through the years but my favorite has to be the PlayStation 2 with the Xbox 360 a close second.  I love turn based RPG's, platformers, survival horror and any kind of stealth action game.  Glad to find this site so I can track my collection.  Thanks!

Hi, I'm bunnybear. Early 40s, married. Child. Been playing games on and off since I was probably six. Started with Apple IIe and then DOS games, but once I got a taste of console gaming, I never went back.

Although I remember playing on my friends' Atari 2600s, my oldest console is an NES. I had a small collection throughout the ages until more recently, when I got back into it and decided to go after all the stuff I missed. I still have a lot of NES, SNES, and DS titles to hunt down.

I just want a site to talk games and chill. I like the database, hoping I'll enjoy the forums as well.

Hello!

I am finally recovered from a broken wrist that stopped me gaming for 10 months (!) and want to start a small collection.

Based on it's exclusives, I just bought myself a PS4 Pro + PSVR and a handful of cheap games. It cost a bit, but I felt like I'd earned it this year!

I'll be adding games slowly as I finish them.

Hope to see around the forums  :)

Hello,

I've been lurking here for a little bit, using the site to track my collection. I figured maybe I'd try getting involved on the forum and see if I can learn a thing or two.

I'm pretty new to collecting, only deciding to expand my collection after realizing that my childhood collection of SNES games had a few rarities in it. I suppose I could have sold them off to make a few bucks, but there was too much nostalgia there to give up on them. Most of my stuff is pretty old as I picked up a Switch over the holidays, but before that, my last console was a SNES that I got in 1992. Because of the nostalgia for that system, SNES is what I'm primarily collecting for. I'm a long ways off, but my end goal is to have a complete North American collection of SNES titles. There's a lot of them, and some of them are terribly expensive, so I don't expect it'll be a quick collection, but I like to have a goal in mind.

Hey there, I stumbled upon this fine site through another forum and I hope to get to know a few fellow collectors with whom to talk retro games and trade a few duplicates :).
As for myself, I am coming from Germany and currently 37 years old, started gaming with my dad in 1984 with the VCS 2600 (sweet memories of Space Invaders  ;) ), and then went on to the C64, NES and SNES. I focus on collecting NES- and Famicom-games, but I also pick up Genesis/Mega Drive, SNES, Gameboy and Game Gear-games on my trips to flea markets and the like.

Besides that I collect Transformers, like to scribble caricatures, doing various art projects, listening to music (mainly Punkrock, Hardcore, Psychobilly, Rock N Roll, Singer/Songwriter-stuff) and playing music myself (bass guitar). So well, hope it‘ll be a fun time on here.
