    Its funny, lately I have suddenly been bitten by a strange desire to begin collecting video games. New games, old games, even systems. I think it stems from the FC Twin I bought, and since then ive been purchasing a bunch of NES and SNES games.

    But now I feel like buying a Dreamcast or Genesis, even random shit like the Virtual Boy or Atari 2600.

    Once the remaining NES games come in, I will take a picture of the whole collection I have. And I already have been documenting them too. It's kind of tiresome and tedious, but exciting at the same time too. It is also a nice distraction until grad school starts again in a few weeks.

    So, anyone have a substantial game collection they want to discuss or share? Any classic games or consoles either?

    Shit, I still have my old Genesis and Saturn that work pretty well. Though my Saturn's Hard drive failed miserably years ago: so I can't save anything.

    Plus I know my games are around here somewhere...

    I have a TurboGrafx-16 with about 7 games just sitting in a box right now. Had considered eBay-ing the sucker seeing as I can get hold of the games through the Wii's Virtual Console. Have several controllers and the multitap for it as well.

    If that offer is the "donations" there's no way I'm just going to give it away! :p

    Here is everythig i have with it: besides the main system with RF adapter itself I have the TurboBooster (lets you use the composite jacks instead of the RF adapter, the cable is included as well), the MultiTap (allows 5 controllers at once), 3 controllers and a total of 7 games (Devil's Crush, Keith Courage In Alpha Zones, Bonk's Adventure, Falcon, TV Sports Hockey, Dungeon Explorer and New Adventure Island). Only Bonk's Adventure has it's original case and instructions- the rest were purchased HuCard only. The original power adapter is there too. When/ if I do decide to put it on eBay I'll let you know. ;)

    I still have pretty much all of my old gaming systems. I still try to use my NES and SNES whenever I'm home, I still have my N64 and PS1 at home too, unfortunately I sold my Sega Saturn and Dreamcast a while ago (I didn't care for my Dreamcast anyways)

    For everyone with a NES still, I would recommend buying a new 72 pin connector for it. They're like 6 dollars on Ebay, are super easy to put in, and clear up the stupid blinking light. When I put mine in, my NES went from hardly working at all, to starting everything up right when it is turned on.

    All together, including shipping, I'd probably say $150 US. I'm allowing extra for shipping as I'm in Canada and I am guessing you are somewhere in the US.

    I was going to say we should take to discussing it via e-mail, had a feeling you wouldn't want any game sale discussion on here. When I do finally get around to posting up on ebay I'll PM you if you want to take a shot, Links.

    I'm still awaiting for this immense picture.

    The composition had better be good!

    I sort of was collecting games a few years ago. Now I have a SNES, Genesis, Saturn, two Dreamcasts, a PS2, and Wii. I definitely need to play the Saturn more, 'specially because it's modded and I've never taken advantage of that.
