    hi, I'm new here, my name is 3li. you guys seem pretty friendly, and I haven't seen any flaming, so I decided to come and spice things up a bit! Just kidding.

    I use a G6 Flash cart, and it's been serving my real nice. Right now I have gta, kuru Paradise and Advance wars on it.

    I'm a big Nes collector, I have 130+ games in my collection (real carts of the nes games, not roms) and I love putting nes games on my gba.

    Anyways, I look forward to getting to know some of you guys!

    Welcome!

    Nice collection!

    I collect Genesis and N64 roms only, but if I got a nice deal, will get NES and SNES.

    I have no idea how much all my nes games costed. I really don't want to know, caues I probably wasted way too much money.

    If anyone here knows anything about nes collecting, the highlights in my collection are: maxi 15, tengen tetris, pro sport hockey, and TMNT tournment fighters

    Haha, I know exactly what you mean. I used to collect both NES and SNES hardware, and I don't want to think about all the money I wasted doing it. I had over 700 SNES carts, every accessory and weird third party hardware..and for the NES I had approx 400 carts, and just about every accessory I could get my hands on. I finally gave it all up, because they were just showpieces, I never really played them after a while. Plus, it was a weight off my shoulders to get all of that space back!!

    Nice show on the Tengen Tetris..I got mine for 15 cents at a flea market - brand new, never been opened. I was practically bouncing off the walls, 15 cents! If you want a real challenge, try finding a copy of the Nintendo World Championship cartridge -> or an even harder challenge, find a gold one. I won't tell you how much I paid for mine, but selling it practically payed my way through university. [​IMG]

    no way! you had a gold one!?!?!?

    I doubt there's a single copy of that game in Canada, but I would obviously buy it if I ever saw it.

    I saw a gold one on ebay a few months back (UK seller)... it went for something like a bit over £1000 (say $2600CAD'ish)...

    15 cents for Tengen Tetris... *cries*. *Sigh* and I thought I was getting a good deal buying boxed Speccys, GBAs, G&Ws and Saturn machines among other consoles for only £1 each... sometimes with games! [​IMG]

    *Wonders if Qrayzie got as good a deal on the Championship NES Cart as he did on the Tengen Tetris cart.*

    /welcome another NES collector [​IMG]

    I have about 260 carts at the moment, and almost every accessory I can think of. Some highlights are:

    Wally Bear and the NO! Gang
    Galaxy 5000, in box
    Power Glove, in box + all paperwork
    Top-Loading NES
    R.O.B. the Robot with gyro, all working
    Dragon Warrior 1-4

    I've slowed down since my Gamestop stores have stopped selling NES carts, since they were the cheapest source I could find. Now the stores that do have NES carts want a lot of money for them, say $8-10 for a common game, on average. Hope your collection grows! [​IMG]

    Hrmm..without hijacking this introduction thread too much ... [​IMG]

    £1 for a boxed Saturn/GBA/etc are great deals! Good lord, that's beyond deal, that's just fantastic. Although, the NWC gold cart for me was a completely accidental purchase. I was hunting for golden Zelda carts, and this guy at the asian market had 5 of them. I got him to give me all five for $20, and when I got out to the car I realized that one of the carts sure wasn't Zelda. I was pretty convinced at what I had found, but looked on the 'net and in my back issues of Nintendo Power to find out for sure. Needless to say, I can't even tell you how excited I was. I sold it to a private collector when I sold all of my collection bit by bit, and got back much more than that original $20. [​IMG]

    Now that collectining NES and SNES is more mainstream, it's not easy to find deals like that anymore, but the odd time I manage to get something good. Carts like Tengen Tetris are still worth a pretty penny (though not as pretty as they once were), etc. Seems the guys at the asian/flea markets are much wiser as to what they have now too.
