My television supports 1080i and 480p, unfortunately no 720p… Xbox 360 looks good in 1080i and the Wii is perfect in 480p.

It also is great to TATE as I play ALOT of shooters (DoDonPachi, Battle Garegga, et cetera…)

I've been building this collection since my childhood. If I add it all up it can come to a bit of value as I do have some rare and obscure consoles… but then there are many others I don't have and cannot really afford.

I believe that games in the UK and Europe are a little more expensive than in the US too…

Video games is just a hobby of mine and something I enjoy doing

Don't upgrade your TV if you plan to play your older consoles, my ps2 looks like crap on LCD.

I got my original NES back in the summer of 1987. The Atari 7800 and the Intellivision were originally my sisters and she handed them down to me. I had got most of the consoles at launch or with in the first year for stuff like the Genesis and the Turbo Grafx.

I didn't get the AES until 2003 with my tax return money — that damn thing was $600 back in the day and the games were $200 a pop. Heck I only have 9 games for it now and they are all the cheaper ones. I got my Japanese consoles in the past 6 years too other than the Super Grafx which I ordered back in 1994 from Game Dude.

It has pretty much been 20 years of getting everything. I never sold off the old stuff when the new came out…

lol Sonic R that really is incredible i can't even lie.

My question is, do you actually PLAY them? Like once you have the new systems and all the old popular ones, at what point do you wake up and randomly go "i think i feel like playing Japanese Sega Saturn today"?

PS3 with mostly sport titles.


I've also got a Nintendo with about 50 games, and a Dreamcast with about 100 burned games... but I only use it to play UFC.

Nice collection Sonic.

I've had tons of systems over the year, but never kept them.


I had a Neo Geo Gold System with 3 games (Art of Fighting, Samarui Showdown, Fatal Fury). They were essentially arcade games at home. The console was like 500$ and the games were around 200$ if I remember correctly (this was early 90's). It came with full size arcade controls and the games were the size of systems today, haha.

Another overlooked system I owned was the 3DO. This system had superior graphics to the original PS and was out before the Playstation I believe. I'm not sure what happened with that system, perhaps Nintendo and Sony were just too strong. Road Rash on the 3DO was years ahead of it's time for home gaming.

How about the Turbo Graphix 16? What a weird system that was.
