Anyone here collect video games?

I have a pretty sizable collection across many systems. Wondering if anybody here shares my enthusiasm for games.  Smile

Me.

I collect mostly PS1 and SNES area games, ones I enjoyed as a teenager or young adult.  I do have a few Genesis games as well but the collection is no where as big as the rest.

Other than that I have a decent size of games from some of the newer systems.

Nice! I'm definitely lacking in my PS1 and Genesis collection. I got a 32X for my Genesis at a flea market, but the primary visual channel is defective, so I can't play anything on it. Makes for an interesting screen saver, though. XD

My system numbers are as follows (approximated while looking at the shelf and not actually counting):
NES: 2 games
Game Boy: 3 games(?)
Genesis: ~5 games
32X: 2 games
SNES: ~15 games
GBC: ~10 games
Saturn: 1 game (no system yet!)
PS1: ~5 games
N64: ~15 games
GBA: ~20 games
PS2: ~30 games
GameCube: ~80 games
Xbox: ~10 games
DS: ~30 games
PS3: ~10 games
Wii: ~70 games
X360: ~20 games
PSP: ~7 games
3DS: ~7 games
Wii U: ~10 games
Vita: 3 games

And then there's countless PC games thanks to Steam sales. XD

I have a couple hundred NES and SNES games. Two huge bins. Most of them are unboxed, just the cartridge. For a while I was picking them up at flea markets, pawn shops, wherever I'd find a new one I didn't have. After a while you get everything but the rare expensive ones so you come to a standstill and thats where I'm at now. 
  To be honest I don't even play them much, I guess I collected them for nostalgia reasons

That's funny. I definitely don't play my games as much as people might expect. I think I collect them with a sort of museum/library mentality. I want to create a single place where people can easily enjoy tons of great gaming experiences. I'm working on designing my living room layout for that; it's got like 5 TVs lol.

I think you're the first person I've ever come across that knows what a Coleco Vision is let alone owns one. Smile

I know what that is! My parents got one when they were first married. My sister and I used to love playing it when we were little! I'm trying to remember the games we have:

Mouse Trap (similar to PacMan)
Lady Bug (also similar to PacMan)
Donkey Kong
Galaxian

I think maybe one or two others, but I can't remember. Haha those controllers are so hokey!

Yep!

I also have Mouse Trap and Donkey Kong. Don't think I've ever played Galaxian or Lady Bug.

Other games I have for the Coleco are

Donkey Kong Jr.
Cosmic Avenger
Frenzy
Venture
Pitstop
Artillery Duel
Zaaxon
Rocky Boxing

My favorites though were probably Cosmic Avenger, Frenzy and Venture.

Unfortunately my console burnt out a few years ago. I don't think they're as durable as the Atari's were. But at a local game store I found that they sold something called the Coleco Vision Flashback and it had a bunch of the old games contained in little box that looks like a minature Coleco for $60. And it even came with two controllers that were exactly like the old "hokey" ones. Laughing

Coleco Vision was quite the technology jump from the Atari 2600 and Intellivision.

For a good awhile I collected Sega Genesis games. I have a small collection. I sold a few here awhile back, I think my thread is still here:

I have PlayStation 3 and a bunch of games such as NHL 15, GTA V, Tomb Raider Trilogy and Duck Tales Remastered Smile.

I do recall that, when I was young, my family used to have systems like Amiga, Atari Jaguar, Sega Mega Drive, Sega Saturn and PlayStation 1. And I used to play a lot.

One of the games that I really liked was the James Pond- saga Wink

It really was and I always preferred it over the Atari 2600.

Is that similar to TimeSplitters?  I LOVED that game back in the day!  All three are great.  And they're working on a 4th!  I may just have to get a Playstation 4 or whatever so I can play the new TimeSplitters haha.

No actually Time Killers was a fighting game (mortal kombat style) that pitted warriors / killers from different points in time against each other. The game's big selling point was probably the fact the at any point in a match with a well placed slash of your weapon, you could cut off your opponents arms, legs or head.

It was not uncommon for a player to get both arms and both legs cutoff and have to finish the battle with no arms.
