@matt and @scott -- thanks for the warm welcome guys. If you guys want to swap links, just let me know. And please stop by every now and then! I'm a firm believer that the more the site out there, the better for all of us nutty collectors :)

Well, I'm Nightowljrm (obviously) and I'm a retro gamer and I particularly love finding underrated and underplayed hidden gems for the NES/Famicom such as Holy Diver, Tararuuto Magical Kun: Fantastic World, etc. I started collecting only about two years ago (while in highschool, I'm a freshman in college now) so my collection is only about 350 items small.

Ooh! I have a small bit of Famicom games: Taruruuto Magical Kun: Fantastic World, Holy Diver, DragonBuster, and Chronicles of the Radia War (reproduced by The NES Dump in English) are the ones I have. 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. (Just go to my channel, user/Nightowljrm, on YouTube).

Hi guys. Just joined the site a couple of hours ago. Was looking for a service/page to show off my small (but growing!) collection and found this page. Looks good, and I like the fact that the community can help out in adding games (or details) to grow the database.

I'm just getting comfortable, give me a couple of weeks and I'll start with the recommendations :P

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.

Take a spin, now you're in with the techno set! You're going surfing on the internet!

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.
