Mame cabs are an awesome project. If any of you need help let me know, I'd be happy to offer advice. :)

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.

welcome! I found this place through r/gamecollecting too and quickly adopted it as my home :p I recently found my power ranger games for gamegear. I hadn't played them in years. I loved that show when I was younger :D

Welcome @iskelly87 glad to hear you found a home for your collection. I was recently watching the Power Rangers movie on Laserdisc while adding games to my collection, I used to watch them all the time with my son and ya I'm a little old to have watched them myself so I use my son as an excuse lol!!!

@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?

I know that I signed up for this site 2 months ago, but was too lazy to make a forum post here.
I'm Neomysterion from ToonZone, RetroJunk, Mario Party Forum, and other sites as well. I mainly collect games for Nintendo systems (mostly the NES, Game Boy, and Super NES), and I have a pursuit for seeking out harder to find NES games at the flea markets (I never used eBay).
If you know me from another site, let me know, and thanks! :)

Hello all, beautiful site!  I have been considering starting something similar to this site for awhile now but for the Sega Saturn only.  I'd much rather participate here!  My name is Anthony, I live in Utah and collect mostly Sega Saturn/CD and PS1.  I enjoy repairing/modding consoles and recently restored a Nintendo Red Tent.  I'd love to help in anyway I can, I'll probably start by submitting edits for Saturn information and photos.

Love how the android app is coming along as well, very useful tool.

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.

See you guys/gals around!

Hey there @dain, welcome to VGCollect! I really dig NintendoAge, but don't venture over to SegaAge much. Also, Congrats on the Complete CiB Game Boy collection!

Welcome @dain! I'm the man behind all of the stuff here so if you have any question or comments please let me know. I'm a huge fan of your sites. Much like Scott, I often find myself on NintendoAge.
