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"?

Thats about it… I'll just get in a mood and decide I'll play what ever console and game that feels right at the moment… Last night I was playing Genesis (Shadow Dancer and Streets of Rage) and right now I am playing Last Resort and Shock Troopers on the PS2 SNK arcade classics collection.

Its kind of like when you get in a mood to listen to a certain song I guess

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.

Thanks

I wasn't lucky enough to have a Neo Geo when I was young but I knew a couple guys who had one and I used to rent it alot. I did get a memory card since you could use it in the MVS arcade units and the AES home systems.

I had got the 3DO when it came out and spent a whopping $600 on it which was at cost since I worked at a game store in high school! The original Need for Speed and Return Fire were games I had the most fun with. The controllers used to daisy chain together and my friend and I spent hours playing Return Fire and Samurai Shodown… I ended up selling it to him and he still has it to this day…

was Return Fire the game where you controlled the Tanks?

that game was awesome.


Another awesome game with Third World War (i think) for Sega CD. You got to take over the world using both Military and Economic functions. Way ahead of it's time.

damn sonic you really love video games huh? I like playing video games but I don't think I can afford to buy that many consoles. Most of the new games are pretty expensive too.

Sonic R, is there a lot of unplugging and re-hooking up to run your systems, or have you rigged it to play a lot of those systems at once?

Incredibly impressive man

or, incredibly demented I suppose

I run 3 switch boxes and 4 power strips(w/circut breakers) - each on their own outlet. My TV has 4 input channels. The Top loader NES is RF only so that is on channel 3. To get something going, I just got to select a channel and press a button on the switch box and thats it.

I don't own any consoles (except my computer). Gaming consoles are really not popular in Serbia, maybe only PS 1, 2 and now 3...
