so congratulation on your collection. good luck as you continue to expand...[/b]
What are those games' titles?Originally posted by falstaff@Mar 12, 2003 @ 02:47 PM
I also really like the early sonic games on the SG 1000 & 3000 system. They can be fun if nothing else than to see the developement of classics like Sonic.
Ugh, the thought of 'collecting' games (or anything else for that matter) makes me nauseous.. You should get things because you enjoy them and use them, not to add to a collection.Originally posted by falstaff@Mar 12, 2003 @ 11:47 AM
Welcome to hardcore collecting.
I don't see why they need 'saving' from anything, unless there's some clandestine government plot to wipe them out that I've not heard of yet. I just don't see it as being too useful amassing piles of stuff to put in storage, but that's just me. If everyone put their old games in storage, newcomers would have no choice other than to download roms to play them.Originally posted by falstaff@Mar 14, 2003 @ 09:33 AM
I have to keep most in storage. I see it as more of a service to the gaming community that some of us are trying to save them...the real systems and the real game cartridges...not some rom downloaded from a the web.
