My Game Collection
Why Do I Collect Video Games?
Video games and video game history has always interested me. The stories of how my favorite games came to be, and the stories of overcoming tight technical limitations are endlessly fascinating to me. Video games are also like, really fun and I enjoy playing them.
Most of the games in my collection are games that I enjoy playing, or are in someway meaningful to me. However, there are some things that I collect simply because they're a novelty or they're just interesting.
I've been collecting my games since childhood. I've kept most of the games that I had as a kid; I got into retro collecting sometime around 2013 or 2014.
Note that if I note that a game is Complete In Box (CIB), I typically mean that it's in the box/case with it's manual. I might not always have every single insert, piece of styrofoam, or plastic baggie. I'll usually go into more detail on the condition of my particular copy on the game's page.
When I consider a game "loose", I mean that I only have the cartridge or disc, with nothing else. If I have unique accessories or inserts (like manuals or maps) with the game, but no box or case, I may consider it something like "loose w/ manual" or "loose w/ fishing rod".
Please also note that by "Games Owned" I am referring to how many unique games I own for that platform. I don't typically include any extra copies or other special variants unless it's so different that should be considered a standalone game (like Pokemon Red and Blue) or if it's the same game from a different region.
Current Total Game Count: 305
